Conjuration/restoration mage is awesome.

I have Lydia as follower with me most of the time, always have a conjured minion up, so that I have 2 extra sets of damage plus 2 extra people to help take damage off of me. Then, in my other hand I have a conjured bound sword to throw down damage as well, with high points in restoration to keep myself healed up in case of emergency.

Build is holding up quite well.

Anyone found the Vampire mage den in the middle of a pond yet?

some rather nifty treats to be had if you can find it. I forget the name of it now. It's in the south east somewhere.

Skyrim has arrived. Yay. Gonna finish other games first because otherwise they'll lay untouched for months.

The archery is still a bit bogus. Not as bad as the first game, but still a bit unpredictable. I can fire an arrow from 50 meters away, and slink into the shadows. But, the dude I hit seems to know exactly where I am. Wassup with that? No way he can hear the bow and come to my exact position. The game just doesn't suit stealth play, it seems.
Yea stealth-range is hard to pull off. I tend to kill guards in 2-3spells (4-5 fireballs will kill 5 guards close together ;D ). I imagine though if you poisoned your arrow and got the sneak bonus do you one hit a lot of guys?

I'm rolling destruction/restoration, with I could add a third spell cast option instead of having to menu screen every time I tend to keep incinerate/fireball on my right and a heal on my left.

My character hates all uses of Magic... probably due to the trauma of watching his mother get molested and killed by a pair of dark elf mages when he was 3. He swore to never touch the magic arts and to kill anybody who practises them.

He refuses to even use a potion, such is his disgust. Not a single perk will ever be wasted on magic. Only Archery, Daggers and Sneak attacks for my boy... with a bit of Forging.

Progress is slow, but purist.

I gots me the 'Bow of hunt'. Best bow Ive found so far and not 'that' hard to acquire.

I have literally completed nothing over the past few days. mainly spent my time wandering around discovering things and killing stuff.

Are you using the Favorites feature? It's a little faster than going all the way to the Magic menu.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I don't like rolling with Lydia. Every fight she will walk right into spells. I was duel casting incinerate and next thing I know her lifeless body is flying across the room on fire

I uhh tried to upgrade her armor but it wouldn't let me remove what she was wearing.. That's my story and I'm sticking to it

Glad I'm not the only one who does stuff like this. Add a bit of a story line and personality for your character it helps me feel more immersed in the game.

I started the main story once... I end up looting everything, selling, doing tons of side quests xD I love that about the game.

I am not currently.. Can you use it on the 360 version? Ive heard you can put spells etc on keys with the pc/Mac versions. How would I go about using it?

Favourite system is on the PS3 so I can't see it not being on the 360. Basically you 'favourite' weapons, armours and spells, then mid battle one button brings up them in a selection menu and you can swap and mix stuff around really quickly. It's fantastic.

I've killed 2 dragons so far, so so so fun. I'm a High Elf mage that whores Bows to kill things I'm too scared to attack head on

On my way to Winterhold to learn the arcane arts... I keep exploring and getting sidetracked from my original sidetrack though. The story will take ages to get back to
