After 512 hours playing every day since mid november, I'm finally ready to hang my daedric gloves up. Having never played an RPG in my life, I was daunted when I started this game and never thought I'd actually get anywhere close to completing the game. Don't think I'll be interested in expansion packs or DLC either, time to move on to another game I think. Pity, because it's such a joy moving around skyrim, the way everything looks, the way the mechanics of the game works, and all those lovely shouts that won't get used again. But the mystery is all but over now for me, I kinda peaked on the game a few days ago.

My first dragon priest was Krosis I think.

Well there does come down to a point after around 300 hours where between one or multiple characters, you complete all the essential quests and get all the artifacts and unique leveled weapons. Hope any future DLC's may change your mind though. I played Oblivion for a long time afterwards due to all the extra content available.

Possibly. One of the largest parts of the game for me was the character development, making myself stronger whilst the various storylines unfold. But now there's no point in further smithing or enchanting since my armour is over 630 and weapons are 180 to 240, making it a walk in the park to kill anything. The only time it gets tough is if there's two ancient dragons at once or a dragon priest and a dragon simultaneously. But with all the extra help I've got at hand like my spectral assassin, dremora lord, call dragon shout, frost atronach, storm atronach (which I don't think I've even conjured yet), it makes it all pretty easy. That said, this is the best game I've ever experienced in my life, (no lie), and having played it so much, it's going to feel weird not playing it anymore. Even without much left to do in the game, I just love loading the game and roaming. So who knows, I'll wait till new content comes out and see. smile.gif

EDIT: As far as this google it argument goes, I end with this:
Stop whining when people don't google something. If you feel like helping, help them. Otherwise, don't point out that they didn't google it. The search bar is a service. If people used the search bar or googled for all the simple stuff, this forum would be a LOT smaller. The number of threads would be a FRACTION of what they are. But, that's not how it works. Quit being jerks. If you have a big head or think someone is too stupid for your time, don't let them know how you feel. No sense causing strain. Yes, I've seen LMGTFY thread issues many times.

One last post from me on this. I wish this site was smaller and that people actually searched before asking. That's how many forums operate and it's a far better practice. When someone like me goes to search for something, it takes far less sifting time.

Anyways, the problem lies in his complaining about the assistance he was receiving, not the question. I get the feeling you overlooked that part.

I don't know if this is unique but here is my current status.

This is my first and only character:

- just got to level 48
- 136 hours played (according to steam)
- entirely combat character, single handed weapons and archery with heavy armor (with sneak for some reason)
- some how I made it to the top of the mage's college before any other guild even though I can barely do magic
- only recently bought my first house in whiterun (got some glass armor from wiping out a thalmor fort up north)
- I've been a werewolf pretty much the whole game
- went from level 42 or so to 48 in one weekend (no stone for "buffs" for leveling faster)
- I have still have tons of quests as both "main" and under "Misc"
- still 3 or 4 cities I haven't even visited yet (more quests I assume)

- And here's possibly the most notable of all: I still have gone up the several thousand steps of the throat of the world to meet elder...grey...guys... That's right, I'm that far into the main quest. I actually have no idea what the rest of the main quest is. I assume I'm at the very beginning.

I only post this because I guess I'm unique in this. So many posts of running out of quests by level 30 or whatever. I wasn't even trying to level up, just happens smile.gif

Haha, I've spent more time running around killing stuff and looting than actually questing. Just been running dungeons etc.

 

By the time I get around to doing any quests I'll just roll my face on the keyboard and win at this rate. Lol.

I'm noticing some stutter in high foliage/high NPC areas. I guess it's because of the many texture mods that I'm using. The game runs fine after removing few texture mods.

The HDD Activity LED lights up like the Power LED during these stutterings. So I guess the stutter comes from the game streaming textures from HDD.

I currently have 6GB RAM. Which upgrade among buying a 120GB SSD and upgrading RAM to 12GB would likely to help with this stuttering?

ram wont help. I have 12GB of ram and am running skyrim from an ssd and it was still stuttering. The problem is VRAM
once i upgraded to my 7970 the stuttering was gone.

What does your VRAM usage look like? Use a tool like MSI Afterburner to help keep track/log of it while you are in-game and maybe let us know what it says. If it is nearing full of your VRAM, then getting extra RAM or an SSD isn't going to solve your problems. If you are capping out on your VRAM, there are a few things you can do short of buying another card with more. Reducing your AA setting, 8x is rather pointless at 1080p so switch it to 4x AA. Decrease shadow detail from Ultra to High (or follow this guide I use the medium settings). If you have Skyrim HD 2K + Official Hi-Res pack installed, either uninstall one of them or use the Lite version of Skyrim HD 2K. You can try to use a program like DDSOpt to reduce the size of textures (I wouldn't recommend doing this). And if all else fails, uninstall some texture mods.

Priority for stuttering when dealing with high-res textures + high-density areas: VRAM ----> SSD ----> RAM. Skyrim cannot address more than 4GB of RAM because it is a 32-bit executable, so don't buy RAM for the game period once you have 6GB+ (giving 2GB reserved for system background tasks).

And you know what, the game will never end, as the Creation Kit allows aspiring game developers (such as me and my mod team) to generate novel locations with new quests, story, characters, and even weapons and armors, while adding content that reaches beyond the world map of Skyrim (beyond Tamriel), while other modders are constantly generating new content. I believe there won't be another TES game in a long while; I assume it'll be for around a decade until Bethesda develops a new TES game, because until then, they are extremely busy working on large DLCs, each being the size of Shivering Isles, if not bigger. You're not even a quarter way there, my friend.
