Help with Oblivion....

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I just started playing oblivion the other day and man do I suck at this game. I chose a nord if I remember correctly, and he's a battlemage. So far the emperor died, they jacked my amulet and I was able to escort the emperors sun to some fortress or something.

My problem is that I have no clue what to do or what i'm doing. When I went inside the oblivion gate I must of died like 40 or more times. it was so frustrating that I was about to uninstall the game. I have some weak flare spell that does no damage, a healing spell that doesn't really heal and some weapons that do barely any damage.

I saw some videos on youtube and I saw a bunch of peeps killing enemies quick..WTH?!? How come I can't do that? i don't even know what level i'm in. I think maybe 4 or 5? Any ideas on what I should do with my toon?

Almost forgot, at the beginning of the game I chose some unicorn or horse for the extra 20 points in speed..which does me no good because I can barely run away from enemies..I always die..help

If you are a nord you shouldn't be using many spells. If you asked Jaufree for assistance when you handed him the amulet of kings he should have unlocked a chest with some reasonable weapons and armor for almost every type of nord character whether you are blunt, blade or bow. I you didn't do that there are may katanas and a couple of bows lying around the cloud ruler temple. Also there is the blade armor although it is heavy armor. you can try also joining the fighters guild for some armor and weapons, I believe there is some steel armor in the leyawwins fighters guild. It depends alot of the type o character you are Nords are generalyy warrior of blunt and blade with restoration as they are best suited for these types of tasks. If your character fells unbalanced try restarting from the beggining (I have created countless caracters in this game and only have three saved). Try to sell and buy its one of the fun aspects of rpgs and if nothing works you can lower the difficulty as it is still a very enjoyable experience and once you get a hang of it you can rise the difficulty up.
hope it helps.

Go into the options and turn the difficulty slider down a bit as well.

WOW..I've been playing this damn game all week and weekend long. I joined the black hand and became the listener. i wanted to kill the mother but I don't think I can for some reason. I also became the grand champ in the arena. I thin ki need a week or two away from this game, it's so damn addicting.
