I poisoned my arrow and made a little bit of noise to get the attention of one of the Nords so separate him from his friends. As he was walking back I drew and fired my arrow, and it hits a wall that isnt there. There was absolutley nothing between me and him and yet my arrow bounces off thin air 1 meter in front of me. Of course the Nord heard me, turned around and alerted all of his friends. I was pissed. My last save was 45 minutes ago. I died and had to start again. Needless to say, I wasnt willing to go through the whole stealth thing again, so I ran in there with a couple of swords and did it that way. Rubbish. Thats not how I want to play. The stealth is so shite in this game.

Im tiring of it already. For the first time since release, I'm not interested in booting the game up and playing some more. *sigh*. The quirky shit that hasnt changed a bit from Oblivion is all still there. I hate Bethesda. Arseholes.
I'm the exact opposite, am impressed how polished the game is.

I've ran into only 2 glitches/odd things. One time a quest broke during Bard's college, I had to reload my save and it fixed it. The other time was during a Dark Brotherhood quest, where the entire camera flipped out and starting showing odd shapes and got all weird then fixed itself a few seconds later.

I suppose it's all based around luck until they get some more patches out for it.

As for stealth, I haven't really done it yet, but from this video, it looks very fun (gameplay starts at 45 seconds until the end) there are some spoilers in there, so be warned (nothing story related, just things you might not have done/know about).

M.C, that mage tip has me dribbling. Thanks man. Working on Destruction, Resto, Enchanting, Archery, One handed, Light Armour and smithing now.

I'm level 16, Destruction at around 60, Archery around 45, the rest of those mid 30's to low 40's.

I found a ghostly headless horseman riding on the road between Markrath and Solitude at night. I tried to talk to him but he was there and gone before I could (I was on foot, he was on horse obviously).

I'm sure if you talk to him he gives a quest or something interesting, or if you follow him he leads you somewhere. Just an FYI.

I'm exploring my way West from Falkreath right now. Got a bit bored of doing quests so set forth from some random out post.

Most fun I've had in the game 2 Dragons (one named, can't remember but it began with a K) within minutes, 4 Giants and 3 Mammoths destroyed (Fus Ro Dah'ing Giants is my new favourite thing), found a puzzle that led me to unlocking a small underground chamber with a chest that had a +1 Destruction book.

Filled a few gems with souls, although I had none big enough for the giants Any easy way to get Grand (or bigger) soul Gems?

Do Azura's Star quest.

The reward is the Azura's Star, a re-usable grand soul gem, it never runs out, can use it over and over again.

Also, exploring is a big part of the series, do quests until you don't have any that interest you at that particular time, then go out and explore/find stuff. I love this game.

Will do that quest the second I next get on Would it be better to get the Black star or Azura?

I spent like 3 hours last night smithing iron daggers, then enchanting them. Now i'n at level 86 enchant, and 70 smith, made a full set of lightweight glass armor, enchated both the helmet and body armor, and a ring/necklace with Fortify destruction 100%. So now i'm basically a unstoppable armored mage. I just need to get to 100 enchant then i'll put fority restoration 100% on the 4 items as well, and see if anyone can kill me.

This game is addictive..

^ I'm steadily doing the exact same, but a few levels behind

I have as much fun running around selling/enchanting/crafting things as I do questing and exploring.

Best game ever.

I hit 100 enchant now, lol. Rebuilt my glass armor with 2 on each. Now I just need to level up my destruction and restoration so I can get better spells to use.

And yea, I jump around so much from trader to trader to college, getting filled soul gems and trading daggers I enchanted , then i'll head back out to explore more once I'm a beast.

I read about using the fortify enchant enchantment which lets you enchant 8% higher or something, so you can go well above 100% if you want, would take some time to keep rebuilding your set though.

Just a hint, blacksmithing is good but it's best to perk the right (heavy) side of blacksmithing even if you are light armor. Why? Because no matter what path, you can make light dragon armor at 100 smithing perk, and if you go down the heavy path, you also get Deadra, which is heavy armor but the weapons can be used by anyone.

In other words, go through heavy side of smithing and you get Deadra weapons (best weapons in the game) along with light or heavy Dragonscale armor at max. It's the best of both worlds.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.
