Is it bad that the only time I don't play this game is when I work?
There is a different perk that lets people you've invested in buy stolen goods. It's a much higher level perk. The investment perk alone just makes vendors carry more cash.
Is there anything in the thieves guild quests that makes it worthwhile to return the Skeleton Key to wherever it's supposed to go? I'm kinda liking being able to pick any lock, and don't think I'm going to finish that quest....
I thought about that when I ran through that Nightingale's mission. Thing is, I had so many damn lock-picks (over 500 at one point) that it didn't matter if I broke 20 of them trying to unlock a Master-level lock. Eventually once I leveled up lock-picking I only carry around ~50 picks and even that is too many. You could always hold onto that Skeleton Key and finish the mission once you have the lock-picking perk that makes lock-picks indestructible...
Plus you get XP every time you break a pick.
Not playing too much, but I did slay the first dragon last night. I came a little.
Don't know if it's been posted already but if you're playing on PC I highly recommend getting SkyUI which can be found here http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/top/alltime.php . There are some other good ones on that list as well.
Just click on the SkyUI text and it will take you to a page with the instructions.

Can you push or otherwise make people fall off cliffs in this game? Weird question, I know, but I have this strange obsession with making people fall to their deaths in video games.
You may be able to shield bash someone over a cliff.
As for killing people from high places...
Taking a break from SWTOR and playing Skyrim for the first time this weekend.
Anytime I'm in the mountains I always have fus-ro-dag armed. No animal or enemy is safe from a 100ft fall when I'm around
Nightingale is my favorite
Are the dragons supposed to be gaping vaginal pussies once you hit around level 15? I'm focusing in two handed melee and they do absolutely no damage to me. I'm assuming they scale to your level if you go further along the main quest, which I haven't.
Elder and Ancient dragons can get hard sometimes, particularly if they attack in an environment with little cover.
There are a couple dragons that have names in specific quests that can be tough.
There is one really cool dragon in a really cool environment that I won't bother spoiling, but it is more cool than it is hard to kill. At least for me, I guess if you make it to that particular quest as a lower level character it may be tough.
Blood, Fire, and Frost dragons are easy.
found a chart online:
Brown skin, Fire/Frost dragons. Level 10 characters, 905 hit points, do 37 in melee damage
Green skin, Fire/Forst dragons. Level 20, 1421 hit points, 75 melee
White skin, Forst dragons. Level 30, 1860 hit points, 150 melee
Bronze skin, Elder Fire/Frost, Level 40, 2255 hit points, 225 melee
Red or Black skin, Ancient Fire/Frost, Level 50, 3071 hit points, 300
They should sort of level with you, so you are likely still only getting Brown and Green dragons, which are easy. Unless maybe you go to some specific dragons that appear on the map.
As you level up, you will start seeing more Elder and Ancient dragons.
$#@! Ancient dragons in the ass. Especially when they run away and recharge.
Yeah I just fought Aduin (sp?) for the first time last night. He was a bit harder.
I play on standard difficulty (adept), and I have to use some damn health potions to kill an ancient dragon, because I'm typically in a mountain and pinned down.

Just got the Thu'um Master achievement last night to round out all 50 Skyrim achievements! It's a testament to the depth of this game that after playing 170+ hours over two characters I still have a lot left to do. I think I'll take a break though as I'm a little burned out.
i miss this game. Time to get back into it?
I've put in 120 hours, more than any other game I've ever played outside of maybe the original Baldur's Gate. Still have yet to beat the game because I'm addicted to questing.
is there anything that "needs" to be done before finishing the Civil War or even the main story? I'm still probably only half way through the Main story and only 2 Civil War conquests. I feel I need to "beat" the game before I forget about the game but I don't want to cut something out by finishing the story or finishing the civil war. I was moving along and then started getting way to involved in questing and doing the guild/college/brotherhood stuff rather than doing any "real" missions.
all i do is quest, only 1/4 way through the main story
Glad to see this bumped. I just started up a new guy last night. Gonna go the sneaky route this time.
Just started playing, way behind but damn this game is freaking sweet!!!!!!!!!
$#@!ing hell. Lost my nightingale boots. Have no idea whether I left them in a chest, or sold them or what the $#@!. Dammit.
So I bought the game on Xbox when it was released, but now I have a PC that's more than capable. Is the PC version worth buying? Is it that much better?
Just booted this back up the other day and finally modded it. I use Skyrim Nexus, I used the same site for FO3 and Fallout New Vegas.
Apparently the new patch added mounted combat to the game, because you know, that was necessary. Seriously though, I may actually have a reason to use a horse now.
Don't they have a bag of gold around their necks?
Alright someone needs to get the expansion and talk about it, In depth, so I can decide whether to buy it or not. I am roleplaying in real life a "curmudgeonly Jew"
I just downloaded and started. Am just past the point where you get to pick whether or not to be a vampire or dawnguard.
As a vampire you get some pretty cool powers (turn into bats, blood drain etc) and you can turn yourself into an ugly Vampire Lord that can fly about (well basically hover).
Not sure what advantages you get as a Dawnguard, Beyond cross bows and I believe some other smithing elements. Will keep posting as I play more.
Seems pretty cool so far and early on the advantages seem to be on the side of the vampires.
Here's what I'd say (I played Dawnguard side). This must be setting you up for some longer term play as a vampire as several times during course of play you get the offer to be turned into one.
I finished it as Dawnguard and it was fairly anti-climatic. Started out pretty interesting and then faded. Decent number of quests and I am looking forward to seeing what if anything else became unlocked as I completed the DLC in pretty linear fashion.
Worth the $ if you're a Skyrim fan but if you were already bored of Skyrim not sure I'd do it.
I finished it on the Dawnguard side. I enjoyed it, but not as much as the rest of Skyrim. It was more along the lines of the Fallout 3 Expansions than Shivering Isles. For me the best part is fighting two dragons on a glacier or frozen lake and summoning a friendly dragon to assist. It was awesome.
However part of the Dawnguard side has a glitch where you get stuck in a cave which requires exploiting another glitch to get out. Yeah, it's a Bethesda game for sure. Luckily someone posted a video of how to do that on Youtube.
