The new requirement to go through steam to start the game is kind of annoying. The launcher has failed several times for me.

So guys what's your go on stealing? I remember when I was playing Oblivion, I was a thief kind of character so it felt natural.. But this time I am playing a noble knight type of hero so stealing feels kinda wrong. However in that case I am noble but broke all the time! Never have enough gold for anything and can't buy 5 skill ups for my major skills every level frown.gif

I really feel like replaying the game just because of it and going for thief again!

Really? You're having problems with gold?
I ran into monetary issues only during the early levels, when I had just bought the Whiterun house and was also trying to max out smithing. Fair enough, I didn't buy the skill ups, but they're cheeeeaaaap.
Mayhaps you're just not adventuring enough? A few random caves - every darn urn/chest/body emptied of valuables - and you're set to go!
What's your current level?

Oh, and in regard to stealing... That's for you to decide wink.gif

So, I just killed my first dragon.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I killed it together with some soldiers and a female warrior or whatever she is called, with green skin. Was pretty fun, I tried killing it with my fire spells as I'm a mage, took me ages to kill it without being killed my self, until I killed it, and a friend told me I could have used a bow to kill it from the top of the tower. lachen.gif

This game is so much fun! biggrin.gif

Well yeh, I am at really early stages so far, around Whiterun, only killed the dragon and did some minor quests inside the town. But it's good to know it will smooth out later on in terms of gold smile.gif Didn't have much time to play yet tongue.gif Looking forward to weekend!

So I couldn't really stop myself from taking all the expensive stuff around the castle in Whiterun and then decided to "steal" the rest of the items! frown.gif No more "Knight", just some heavy armored dude now... Oh well..

Well, it's natural that you'll not have much money at the beginning of the game, and not be able to spend money maxing out the training for all your favourite skills each level. But you will eventually get more money, and it will get to the point where you have too much that you don't know what to buy. I'm currently level 40 and I have about 40k gold, I've maxed out most of the training for my skills this level and there's nothing I want to buy. I want to work on my enchanting though, so I'll do the little trick with soul trap and The Black Star. biggrin.gif

Yeh but if I decided to steal everything, I would have considerably more gold and would be able to level skills much faster especially since there are all the trainers in Whiterun that I need: one-handed wep, block, smithing etc tongue.gif Also wanna level smithing early too so that I could craft cool items before I start looting them in dungeons/quests))

Darn this role play biggrin.gif

Unless you did the first few quests in whiterun yes it is normal. You have to trigger the dragon spawns with the beginning quests

Thanks. I actually did that quest finally last night. I just stayed at the top of that tower and shot arrows at it. I think the other people did most of the killing (unless it was a really weak dragon). I tried out my first shout and then logged off. I've also figured out that instead of doing quests all the time, if you just wander around it can be more fun. You get into some interesting areas.

oh. That would be why some people can't max it. Until i saw that i thought i was doing it wrong, lol.
