Ah ok, I thought you had to join a cult or something.

nah pretty much find a vamp and fight him and let some of his attacks hit, eventually you will contract a disease. i dont think it specifically says "vampirism" its called something, cant remember. but you'll know. basically if you catch some kind of disease during a vampire attack, its that smile.gif

You do not need followers at any time, except for when you have a quest that forces you to take a specific follower into a place. (And some of those can be refused via dialogue before entering the dungeon without harming the quest; you just tell them to stay here and it's too dangerous, and many times they'll agree and thank you.)

I only play on Master difficulty level and I never found dragons to be particularly challenging unless I was encumbered as a melee character.  If you're a melee character, especially a two-handed or dual-wielder, and you're encumbered, a master difficulty dragon fight is brutal.

For me, the most difficult fights in the game were giants, as a melee character, but they are a cake-walk, even at level 15, for a mage with the right perks. For my mage, the toughest encounters were probably groups of multiple Forsworn or groups with more than one two-handed weapon user. (This is when companions, conjured allies, or a certain high-end illusion spell come in handy.)

Dragons were a joke for my mage and archer in almost every scenario.


Oh, and the Thalmar Justicar parties are pretty tough, for almost every character type that I've played, although they were "easiest" for my mage.

On Master, at level 55 and 617 daedric armour, I pretty much just use my daedric sword (176 damage and which I enchanted with 32 points of burning) and staff of frost atronach, and they take out giants, draugr deathlords, trolls, bears, tigers, within 2 to 6 swipes. I often have to check if my settings haven't changed to novice. tongue.gif Gets tougher when there's several deathlords and restless draugrs in front of me, or some of those forsworn leaders can oneshot me sometimes. Dragons are easy now, I mostly use archery from a hiding place with my daedric frost or scorching bows on them once I've distracted them away from me with a frost atronach and/or conjure up a dremora lord. For two handed, I only use a daedric warhammer of burning, which is very deadly. I don't honestly feel I need any other weapons or more enchantments now.

You need this extra program to run before launching TESV.exe.

I use Hayden's method to fix the issue and it works perfectly for me. It doesn't work for 1.4 yet.

Nemesis 158 asked the same question a bit earlier and I provided him with the same link as above, but some additional information from the optimization guide on geforce.com

 

I think that doing both may help, as the .ini tweaks move the UI closer to the edges of your screen. Thanks for posting that it doesn't work yet with TESV 1.4 That's good information to have.

From this article: http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/Guides/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-tweak-guide

 

[Interface]
fSafeZoneX=15
fSafeZoneY=15
fSafeZoneXWide=15
fSafeZoneYWide=15

 

The [Interface] section and variables above must all be added to the bottom of the Skyrim.ini file. These variables control the distance from the edge of the screen at which HUD elements, like the compass and health, magicka and stamina bars, appear. The lower the value assigned, the closer to the edge of the screen the HUD elements, as well as any status messages or location text, will appear. This can make them less intrusive.

 

That will help the placement of the HUD elements. I use that and like that.

 

I have not altered the sizes, as I play on a single monitor, but here's some info from http://widescreengamingforum.com/dr/elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/en that might help:

HELP!!! I have installed the exact same mods (only a few) and I am using the exact same skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs file as before. I dont get it, and I am totally devastated!

Not sure if you had modified your uGrids previously, but that would be a reason for the crash. The message about something missing is just a mod you didn't put back, but the game should run fine. Sometimes game saves just get corrupted. Good idea to have a backup of them at all times. (I keep mine in their defualt folder, but also in my dropbox)

Most are anxiously awaiting Hayden to make his fix work with the latest version, myself included. smile.gif
