Actually its really bad compared to the other games. The only difference is you dont get detected after your first arrow, which often kills lesser stooges in one hit. His friends dont care or notice that he is dead and you can keep picking people off as long as you one shot them before the eye opens. Its pretty ez mode and lame. The fact that on masters a decent bow can 1 shot most foes makes it extremely OP.

Also you backpeddle slowly until you get an upgrade and it takes like 3sec from drawn bow to when you can start running so you can easily die which is stupid and makes no sense. Arrows dont weigh anything either so you can carry a million if you wanted.

Hitting people in the head doesnt give a bonus to damage. Well I guess shooting that plate wearer with no helmet in the middle of his chest is the same as a skilled headshot...

Im playing on masters and I dont even use the best arrows and bows and its easy. The only thing you cant kill with a crappy bow is trolls and only because they regen too fast, which actually makes em good to get your archery skills up.

The arrows also feel like they fly awfully slow even at short distance which is annoying which means you have to lead quite a bit. Ive shot bows before and it doesnt take that long.

Overall archery is pretty meh but I always play archer so Im stuck with it. Id pick some melee character or even mage as it might require some thought.

Oh yeh since you can heal ez as an archer the only reason you have to leave an area is encumbrance.

1) Sneak
2) Pick off appropriate target
3) Repeat

Gold is not really the problem in skyrim, I have the house in solitude(a total cost of 36k). Haven't really done so much main quests yet, it's too much fun exploring and clearing dungeons( I am level 33). And I got married yesterday aswell(in-game) smile.gif

Update, for those who care.

I'm level 28 and I've been working on my smithing - level 88 just now and have a full set of legendary ebony armour. Unfortunately I don't think the ebony armour looks as good in Skyrim as the Oblivion stuff. frown.gif

Oh well, I'll have to see what daedric and dragon armour looks like once I'm able to make it. biggrin.gif

Just joined the College of Winterhold last night. Started the first quest, but it locked up so I took that as a sign that I should get to bed. tongue.gif

Instead of buying a house, i just head a guild. Free place to put heavy things.

whats the "best" light armor you can get? I'm thinking about investing into light armor+single hand+destruction as a CQ battlemage

lvl 10 right now tongue.gif

The best would be dragon scale, but you're not going to get that at level 10. tongue.gif

Elven armour would probably be right for level 10 light armour.

I just started but I like heavy armor a lot. Maxing out its perk tree makes its downsides almost nonexistent.

You've got health, stamina, magicka and your skills/perks.
Skyrim is a dungeon crawler/action RPG, not an in-depth RPG like Morrowind was.

There are potions to increase strength though, so surely there would be enchantments to do the same.

If by strength you mean carrying weight, yes there is.

Yes, in the past Elder Scrolls "Strength" always determined how much you could carry.
