89 hours, still only level 46, still loving the game.

62 hours here, and i have barely only almost hit level 30 and i have not touched the main quest much. I play these kind of games (morrowind) really slow, i hate missing things and so far am in love, really reminds me of the countless hours i poured into morrowind.

As for the previous posters having trouble with their mage and armor choices, honestly from the get go i was in the mindset to be a mage in heavy armor and it is working extremely well at the moment. I have almost all the +armor increases in the heavy armor tree and i have enchanted my helmet, body, and ring with +20% destruction reduction (working on getting neck and enchanting potion to get more + reduction) unbuffed i have around 320 mana , i am also specced into the mana regen trait 1/2 which in in the restoration tree soon will be 2/2. With this combination i can take a decent beating and i dont run out of damage even when using the most mana depleting spells like incinerate dual cast , as for worrying about enemies getting too close a dual fireball , firebolt, or incinerate will "stagger" the target. I tent to switch to lightning when i fight heavy magic opponent because it drains their man , or i just turn into a werewolf and one shot them ha ha.

Hope this helps all my prospective mages!

Yeah, I'm one of those people that has to explore every last nook and cranny and loot every corpse. Same with Oblivion and Morrowind, and especially the Diablo series. Makes the games last forever. biggrin.gif

Yeah i'm the same. Even though i have 30,000 gold, i still feel the need to search dead bandits for 30 gold each time.

On another note, wow, my first time on since the release of the latest Nvidia Beta drivers ( 290.36) prior to this Vsync enabled played a bit sluggish but was the only way for me to play when using my 3 card configuration, each card would sit at no more than 45% usage on all three. With the new beta drivers the sluggish feeling is surprisingly GONE! Although the usage has changed quite a bit, first card sits at high usage of 80-90% never lower and the other 2 cards dont go above 20% it seems. Hey whatever, i will take it!

The sluggish feeling with the mouse with Vsync enabled is also GONE! I am quite pleased, most people would simply say disable Vsync in the Nvidia control panel, which i did try, but then the game is extremely unplayable from the framerate glitches that happen with it off. I am really happy to see the Vsync problem fixed in this game!

I'm level 43.. about 73 hours played so far. I think I've discovered and looted "most" places in the game. I've completed the Champions, done a few of the DB quests, just joined the thieves last night and done a little of the main quest. My son is level 20 something and has beat the main quest etc.. He's still playing it but I think he rushed the game a little to much.

I just have a hard time sitting down and focusing on one specific quest. I'm to easily sidetracked biggrin.gif

I'm level 30 on my 2nd playthough. About 60 something hours in.

Even on expert difficulty i can down a giant in 2 strikes before it hits me. Specialised in light armour, 1 handed, smiting and enchanting.

Using what? It still takes a couple double strikes with me. My focus has been light armor, 1 handed ,etc..
