Crafting helps a lot.

You can use Alchemy to create +Smithing and +Enchanting potions. Drink the +Enchanting potion and enchant +Smithing armor and jewelry. Wear your smithing gear and drink your smithing potion, and you can improve your armor to more than double its base value (~130% IIRC). I'm not sure about weapons because I don't use them, but those probably get more than doubled also with 100 Smithing and Enchanting and 75+ Alchemy.

I would imagine so. She's quite a mean woman, telling the kids that they would never be adopted and that no one would want them. I only stopped in before making my way to the Ragged Flagon. Guess it's time to go back there and kill her. Maybe use some poison. sneaky.gif

I wasn't sure if I wanted to kill her or not, so I decided to talk to her first.

She told me something like "when that little brat gets back he's gonna get the beating of a lifetime."

It was an easy decision to make after that.

Any suggestions for how much of the main quest to do to best enjoy the rest of the game. For example, if you don't kill the dragon in the main quest, you don't get dragons. Anything else that you'll miss out on until it's covered in the main quest?

I seem to have run into a glitch. I have both dual flurry perks and critical charge, but when I try to do the critical charge with two daggers equipped it doesn't work and it just does one super fast swing, without charging forward or doing a crit hit. Anyone else get this or know how to fix it?

Critical charge doesn't guarantee a critical hit, it just makes the hit do double damage IF it actually crits. To do the running charge you have to actually run at something (with alt by default) and then hold one of the mouse buttons down for whichever hand your weapon is in. After a second or so you will lunge forward doing a power-strike. If that's what you're doing and it still isn't working then i have no idea.

ya i do that and it doesn't even do the animation, it just does this super fast swing. What's weird is it works sometimes, but not always. Also, other power attacsk don't work when it doesn't work and vice versa...

Are you maybe low on stamina from running? Without stamina you can't power attack.
post #2427 of 12885

I found this video (not mine), this is the same problem I am having. It just skips the normal charge and does that super fast swing. It happens to me without elemental fury.

Okay so..

I had 34 smithing at level 25. I never used a forge the entire time. It was mostly picking up books and whatnot.

I have no forging items since I sold them all.

I got to 90 smithing in an hour and 15 mins.

I also jumped 5 levels or so.

~Shakes head.~

Time to make Daedric armor.

Question though. Is it worth spending 1 more skill point to go the Dragon armor route? Or save skill points and just go straight for Daedric? Going the Dwarven/Orcish/Ebony path is shorter by 1, but those seem boring.

The other path is Elven, Advanced(scale and something else) and Dragon, then Daedric.

I feel like I should go with the other cool armors, even though I may never use them.

Oh, and I made 370 Iron daggers in the process, lmao.

Time to use them for enchanting!

It's not a circle, dragon is the end and there's two paths to get there, but you can't go from dragon to daedric.
