Enough complaining time for some playing






2 whacks from a "bandit thug" with a mace and I'm dead, 1 power attack almost kills me, my health is 180-220 for sure. Thats with heavy armor except on my head
I see. Nothing that should have gimped your champ, but it's pretty tough on Master. You only do half damage and you take twice as much.

Could be. Legendary is very tough. I'm playing it now -- I'm like level 15 and I can barely scratch a giant, and it one hits me when I'm blocking haha. I'm very grateful for my follower lol.

I haven't had a single follower in my save. I'm at level 38 or 39 right now, with the main quest and Civil War quest done. I'm missing out.

Also, does anyone know of any decent armor mods (besides Immersive Armors?. I'd like a knight-like armor set, but I can't seem to find one I like.

Really? I thought they made it "large address aware" which allowed it to address >3GB RAM. Either way though, these games should've been this way from the word go. I was surprised not even fallout 3 / New Vegas was. I've been running a 64bit OS since the launch of Vista, with absolutely no issues at all - not even driver problems. Because frankly, if a piece of hardware was worth anything, it's manufacturer would have a 64bit driver out almost immediately...otherwise i'd sooner bin the hardware and not buy from that manufacturer again.

Skyrims biggest hindrance is, imo, Harddrive speed. It's constantly thrashing a drive for data when exploring or loading new area's, and that burden is significantly increased if you're running texture packs or such like. It was definitely the source of alot of stuttering i experienced.

This was one of the main reasons i upgraded to a RAID0 configuration with two WD Blacks. It does help.

If you're on a lower difficulty a follower isn't needed -- tbh they're annoying but they can carry a lot of things. On higher difficult levels they're a must since they're as strong as the enemy NPCs.

I'm using the Vierna follower mod ... first follower I've played with. Couldn't do without her now. She's an ass kicker! I had to take her flaming/exploding bow away from her though cause she was acidentally killing me too often. LOL ... gave her an ax instead.

Here she is at Nexus: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/27016/?

I guess thats what I should do since master seems very hard, I'd hate to lose Lydia though, she's my only 1 so far and I'm a level 24 Orc with only 120 magic so healing her is not much of an option

Why would you lose her? They're a must on high difficulty and only useful for carrying stuff on low difficulty. She won't die unless you kill her though... I had a dragon, mammoth and giant pounding away at her for half an hour and she just kneels down and gets back up in a minute when she recovers.

Got the giant, mammoth and Lydia to kill the dragon for me, and then I turned to the giant and ran away after I realized I'm basically as strong as a mosquito against it.

She dies, and that was on master or legendary last character I played, that was against 3-4 goons sent to kill me
