    Default Skyrim II: A Dragon A Day Keeps The Draugr At Bay

    Continue here!!

    Let's go with a nifty question to fire this up: what was your most immersive game moment?

    Me, it was being lifted in the sky by Meridia, to talk to her one on one. There was something divine/messianic there. She taken me into her hands, and gently put me back..

    My most immersion-breaking moment was being hit by a giant's club and was sent cartwheeling into the air at escape velocity.

    I know I'm looking for answers to my big question: If you join a guild that requires you to do criminal acts (the Thieves' Guild and Dark Brotherhood) while part of a non-criminal guild like the Imperial Legion or the College of Winterhold, do you get kicked out of non-criminal guilds if during a quest for a criminal guild you are caught in the act? I know that in Oblivion I killed some Daedra worshippers only to learn they were Mage Guild members when I was kicked out of the Mage's Guild for assaulting them. Hence I did criminal guilds early, to get my criminal history out of the way and then get back on the straight and narrow. Once I was at the top of the guild, I didn't need to really worry about committing crimes, since I generally didn't steal or murder unless it was necessary to proceed.

    Also, if you join the Legion or the Stormcloaks:

    You'll lead an attack on one of Skyrim's cities, which one depending on your affiliation. Will you still be able to do local quests in the attacked city after the faction questline is over, or should you do those first before the place is destroyed?

    It's like Fallout New Vegas where I was trying to juggle each faction so I could maximize quests without barring myself from access to anything.

    Well I have not gotten very far; I am not even done with the first part of the main quest yet.

    However I am getting good with the bow; I can hit things so far away that their heads are as big as the dot in the middle of the sneak symbol... I can't wait to get the perk that allows me to zoom.

    Anyway, my favorite moments so far are two: The first one is the one where the intro dragon slams through the wall, that seriously freaked me out the first time I saw it, and the second one was simply the wildlife. Not the wolves or bears, but the birds in the sky or the deer and elk.

    I am also glad to say that checking the box in the options for FXAA really helped. No more jagged edges..

    Oh and character build tips?

    My simple plan is to increase stats according to this pattern: Stamina - Health - Stamina - Health - Magicka (since I only use magic as a backup and for underhanded stuff, like Rage).

    My perks so far is Overdraw rank 1, Stealth Rank 1. The next two will be in the fields of One-Handed and Lockpicking.

    I just finished getting my destruction to 100 with boosts from the Destruction trainer in the College of Winterhold....that was a job and a half. I'm thinking next will be Restoration. I really like the perks in Restoration that up my mana regen.

    Mind you, going through the Thieves guild at this point is a pain in the butt, my sneaking and lockpicking are really trash. I really want to restore the Guild to it's former glory.

    Heh, Skyrim is so fun.

    I never had problems with storm mages, they don't bother me and I'm a freakin' mage. Ice Mages make me want to pull my hair out. The only think I hate more then an Ice Mage is a Falmar Shaman....sooooo annoying.

    Yeah ice mages can be SoB's but at least it takes them 3 shots to kill me. Stormmages don't bother me it is specifically the Electromancers.

    Haven't ran into one of those, I'm looking forward to it scene I just reached level 34 and challenges are getting more rare. I do love fighting Ice Dragons, they are challenging if I don't use Dragonrend.

    I had just fast-travelled to Whiterun and a dragon showed up in the city. Myself and Lydia and the rest of the guard, as well as a couple townsfolk kicked it's tail. It died right inside the front gate. And from what I've noticed, dragon skeletons don't go away. So every time I walk into town, the dead dragon is right there, 10 feet from the gates. It's fricken' awesome. Too bad the guards don't say anything about killing it though...

    I found out when I was doing something similar to Avilan, I was just taking a moment to watch the mundane wildlife. I saw a Hawk of some kind that had been circling land in a nearby tree. Out pops the bow and down falls a Hawk.

    Im loving the attention to detail in this game. It does still fall into some of the old traps, most noticable in the pathing AI for Large Creatures gets messed up by fairly small things (makes kiting easier tho) but small details like this more than make up for it imo

    I havent seen them as an option on the enchanting list. So I guess its only the bow you enchant and it gives that effect to the arrows

    Dang. That sucks. I always wanted to enchant my own arrows in Oblivion since buying magical ones was expensive as all hell. Figured in this one I could make an ice bow with fire arrows or something. Not only slow down casters and charging warriors, but burn them from a distance as well. Oh well, I think there's a perk that lets you double up on enchantments. Guess I could always do that.

    Yes youcan buff up your enchanting enough you can make a Fire & Ice bow.
    I think its the top Enchanting perk (or a very high up one) that allows you to put 2 enchants on each item

    Sweetness. Guess I'm gonna have to start focusing on enchanting for a few levels to get there. Got a lot of work to do now. While on the subject, lightning. Does it drain magicka or stamina? I can't remember and don't encounter it very often.

    Magica. Which is why the only times I use Sparks now (at low levels) instead of fire is on enemies throwing magic at me. Otherwise since I use a weapon fire is better, since it increases the damage dealt by the weapon as long as the object is on fire.

    Im using the lighting spells route at the moment (Im lvl 25) even though its slightly more magika cost intensive for one reason; Travel time of the shot.
    I had wanted to use more fire spells, cause everything gets better with more fire, but I started getting annoyed that the Firebolt shots would miss at the last second because the target twitched slightly.

    Near instant shot travel time for Lightning is making it my go-to spell at the moment.

    Good to know. I'll have to find that spell then. Enemy fire mages have been giving me hell for awhile now and I could definitely use that to help even things out. I'm playing a sword-n-board heavy armor warrior type so fighting casters is hard sometimes. Working on getting the block perk that lets me charge with the shield up, so that should help some but lightning spells will help until then.

    Does the Block skill help to prevent magic damage as well as physical?
