In that time I've done a ton of radiant and miscellaneous quests before even getting stuck into the major storylines, plus of course lots of smithing, enchanting, running around finding materials, selling stuff, buying stuff, etc. This stuff takes time to do. Why is it people on another forum I post at are like "omg, I did more than you in 70 hours" or "440 hours, ***?". It's an RPG, aren't these games meant to take many hours? It's my first ever RPG btw so I guess I'm savouring the experience more plus it took a period of time to really learn how it all works. Am I supposed to feel guilty, stupid or incredibly slow for putting so many hours in ? tongue.gif I can't be the only one, are there any others here with similar hours put in to make me feel better?


Roman5, I love you man.

You are doing it right, don't sweat the haters. Modern RPGs have gone to an instant gratification format, in my opinion. A format encouraged by Achievement Titles and heady rewards; indeed, a format inspired by the rest of modern life.

Most young people today - and some of us older ones - get sucked into the wham bam feeling had by 20Mb/s connections, screaming CPUs, and omnipotent phones. It is nice to see someone enjoying the fullness of an experience.

I only have a little over a hundred hours on my main toon and haven't finished the main quest line yet. I just recently went through Blackreach, too; a little sooner than you maybe. In my case, I try to take it slow and really let the game engage me. I find myself wandering away from a quest marker to find out what's over the next hill a lot. I generally only get to game for about an hour a night during the week, maybe a few hours on Friday and Saturday nights, so I have to fight the urge to hurry through quests often.

One thing I am doing, in an attempt to make the sand-box feeling last, is limiting my characters roles. My primary character has followed some of the Thief quest line, most of the Assassin quest line, and is deeply immersed in the main line. I thought that with him I would wait to finish the Thief and Assassin lines till after I had completed the main line.

I started a High Elf character to delve strictly into the Mage quest line. I have no idea where this will lead.

I also started an Orc character to try out some thing that will follow the Heavy Armor - Two-handed Weapon model, forgoing stealth and duplicity in favor of direct assault.

I don't play either of them often, though. I figure I will finish out my primary character before engaging them.

So, in sum - Good On Ya Bro! What your doing is reminiscent of what we used to do in the 80's with Pen and Paper marathon D&D sessions. We had one campaign that took almost every weekend, from Friday night till Sunday morning from 1984 to 1987. As dorky as it sounds, it was very rewarding in the end.

Not all of that ram is in my daily computer tongue.gif

 

I have 4gb of mushkin 2000mhz 7-10-7 ram in my daily.  The 12gb of Dominator GT Hyper IC (2000mhz 8-8-8 & 1600mhz 6-6-6) ram that is in my sig is mainly used for Dry Ice/LN2 benching on my various benching platforms (1155, 1156, 775, AM3).

Hmm, so I just started the game and right after you get out of the cave, instead of following what's his name to town, I went left and wandered into the vampire place. I went in there and slaughtered everybody including the master vampire. Took me like 20 or so tries to kill him. I was like level 4 or 5. So can I not be a vampire anymore then or is there other vampires out there?

I've never played a vamp but as far as I know you become a vampire by catching that disease, vampirism. As long as you're not immune to all disease it should only take one vampire to directly or indirectly make you turn into a vampire smile.gif

Lots of caves with vampires, pretty sure they respawn also in some places.

Point of fact - Visit a Shrine in a Temple and Pray after fighting a Vampire or Vampires if you don't wish to become one. I think Cure Disease works too. But either method must be undertaken within 24 hours of infection, iirc.

To find out if you are infected, 'P' to bring up Magic, Shouts, and Powers. Click the Active Effects listing and if you see anything in red, it might be related to Vampirism. The things you will see might be Weakness to Fire or Weakness to Sunlight.
Quote:
Becoming a Vampire

Whenever a vampire casts Vampiric Drain on you, there is a 10% chance for you to be infected with Sanguinare Vampiris.
Initially, this is a normal disease that reduces your total Health by 25 points. It is subject to the rules which govern any other disease, and can be cured in the same fashion. However, not curing the disease within three days will cause it to progress to full vampirism, and at that point, the effects can no longer be reversed with a normal cure.
Sanguinare Vampiris gives messages to the player each day at certain times, indicating their condition. At sunrise, a message will appear saying "You feel strangely weakened by the sunrise". At sunset, the message is "You feel a strange thirst come over you". After the third day, Sanguinare Vampiris will disappear from your active effects and you will awaken as a stage one vampire.
There are many ways to contract the disease, all of them involve encountering hostile vampires and letting them attack you. However, rather than let them hit you in melee, you should keep your distance and only allow them to cast their draining spell as this is the only attack that can impart the disease. To speed up contraction, repeatedly lose and gain sight of the target vampire so the spell is cast multiple times. The check for giving you the disease is passed only when the draining spell hits you, not over sustained action.
Quote:
Cure for Vampirism

If you’ve contracted the disease, you won’t become a vampire for three days. Until then, you can get rid of the disease with any Cure Disease potion or blessing.
Visit any inn. They will send you to Morthal to speak to a man named Falion. From there the quest Rising at Dawn will begin.
You can also cure your Vampirism by becoming a werewolf within the Companions faction. However, once you contract Lycanthropy you gain a 100% resistance to disease and cannot be re-infected with Sanguinare Vampiris. You can, however, become a vampire again if you cure your lycanthropy.
