Anyone know of some good assassin builds? I've just been focusing on one handed, archery, and sneak so far.

Needing some help with my mage build. Mana regen and mana pool at the beginning of the game is ridiculously nerfed. I can't find a damn cloth armor worth a piece of toilet paper. I have a feeling I am going to do what I did Oblivion. Give up on mage (which is the class I play in every other RPG) because it's almost impossible to run the game with. I ended up building some walking monolith that was immune to damage and swung the biggest stick he could find. How boring.. As an archer if you miss with an arrow, NBD just fire another one. If you miss as a mage, you are screwed. You only have this tiny pool of mana. I know, I'm doing it wrong. Someone help me.

So considering I didn't want anything for Christmas and that Skyrim gets my hard drive to make more noise than a porn star doing scene 3 take 15 I went and bought a Vertex 3 120 gig SSD for myself. Going to see what kind of difference it can make.

I bet an SSD can make up for the unoptimized code in cities that makes everybody's fps drop like mad.

Too bad an SSD will do almost nothing for load times.

Do you have slow load times? It's never loading for more than a couple of seconds for me ;l

Assassin's come in two flavors; those who only use weapons and those who also use arcane magic. Since you seem to be leaning towards the former, I suggest that you focus more on archery until your sneak is good enough to get you close enough to land that x15/30 backstab damage with a dagger. Honestly, while it is definitely harder, an assassin does not actually need high one handed to face melt. At x30 backstab damage, that typically is enough to more than one shot most things in the game.

Easiest solution is to get a follower as early as you can. If you can beat up that fugly Unbroken NPC in Bannered Mare (Whiterun), she is actually a very decent tank. The strategy is to load her with health potions while you build up your skills shooting the distracted enemies. On earlier levels, try to find clothing and jewelry to help lower the cost of your spells. Overtime, you will find clothing that helps you regenerate magic faster. Once you get impact however, mages become very powerful in Skyrim.

Not really worried about load times, it's so quick on my WD black that I rarely get to see the little messages in between maps. Do most people have bad load times or something, or are you stating that for the same reason above, it's already so quick?

I am hoping it will be more useful for the constant streaming of data that appears to be going on. That and it will be nice just to have in general. I mean seriously, my hard drive sounds like it is going insane when I play skyrim and at least a few minutes after I quit. Of course I shouldn't say quit, usually my skyrim time ends with it crashing on me. It's a love hate relationship.

I found my load times were significantly less when I moved my game over to my SSD... especially going in and out of buildings in cities; and I don't have that great of an SSD at all. Often I don't even see the game tips on the loading screens anymore because it loads so fast, so that is proof right there.

I have no problem loading levels with my WD Black, heck I can barely ever finish the 'tips' they give you tongue.gif

On the other hand, I can read the tip 3-4 times on my laptop before it loads rolleyes.gif

Hey All!

I saw numerous posts regarding mods for PC. For those not familiar with one of the biggest Skyrim mods repositories, here is the link:

http://skyrimnexus.com/

The main reason for this post is to provide the following link:

http://skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=11#content

It is an ongoing overhaul of the entire game, and is a list that provides tested mods/tweaks/enhancements. Download the PDF for a list with links to each mod, so you can pick and chose which ones you may want. Also, I highly recommend the Nexus Manager (or there is an alternative somewhere on the list) to manage your mods. The list also provides a brief description, directions, and order-of-installation for the majority of mods. These are not all the mods, as there are still plenty more that are highly endorsed, depending on your tastes.

DL and have fun!

cheers.gif
