[Official] The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Information and Discussion Thread - Page 237

post #2361 of 12885
I'm going to start a new game. Last one was a sneaky type wood elf. This time I can't decide between an all out heavy armored orc or a magic wielding high elf.

I have never really played a mage before but I usually enjoy playing warrior after my main sneaky character.

I am always Argonian. I hate diseases and poison, and I love breathing under water. Too bad I have yet to find any interesting underwater areas.

Question for you and those who crank the difficulty up. Do the baddies just take more hits to kill and deal more damage, or do they also use better tactics?

There are a lot of other companions in the game. List of followers. Link contains spoilers. Inns are a good place to pick up companions failing that.tongue.gif
Thanks! Sadly that only leads to the question, which is the best? I guess I'm looking for a Tanky DPS. Either Shield and Sword, 2 swords or archer that can take lots of hits.

Don't need my follower dying like Lydia >_>

Plus there's always.. The Companions. They're my fav. so far. They usually have the sense to sit back and shoot arrows while I hack and magic the poo out of things;

Yeah, think I might hit up the hotties in The Companions. Maybe get Falkas to follow me.

Btw, are there any Jarl's or important hot knights you can marry in Skyrim? If not, I don't think I want to get married in Skyrim lol.



Btw, is there a way to reduce cloud congestion in Skyrim? I don't mind clouds throughout the day, but at night, they really mess up the beautiful sky when they're heavily congested.

There is a sweet underwater dungeon to the far west of Riverwood in the lake.

I've found, from my admittedly small pool of candidates, that Farkas and Aela from The Companions are my favorites. Aela is better for ranged backup while Farkas is more for DPS/Tank since he's a Heavy Armor/Two-Handed whereas Aela is a Light Armor/Archery type. I know that Vilkas and Aela are marriageable. In fact, there's a bug where wearing the Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Amulet of Mara (req'd for marriage) will result in Vilkas chasing you around Whiterun, sword drawn, asking if you are fond of him.

I chose Aela since hearing her say, "How are you, luv?" is completely out of character. Cracks me up every time. She also retains the follower faction association after marriage, at least in my experience.

As far as being able t marry important Jarls, I don't think you can. Knights? yes.
Relatively thorough lists can be found at UESP.net and Wikia.com.

For the night sky, is this perhaps what you were looking for?

All it does is increase their hp and damage by approximately three times (going from default to Masters). So it's just a lazy artificial difficulty bump that won't require the player to do anything different. Well, except get better gear.
