Easy way to skip the opening cinematic, if you are thesame kind of person as me who start over like a million times; save just before the imperial guard goes "who are you", if you make that a save, you can just load that everytime, and go straight to character creation.

I didn't actually know you could do this, thanks man!
User avatar #17 to #2 - heartlessrobot (01/09/2014) [-]
I've tried that. In fact, it always saves there for me. But whenever I load that save, it erases the character I had already made after that save.

the game makes an autosave for you the very first time you play the game. (At least on PC)... but that didn't stop me from watching the into many times my first 6 months of playing...
User avatar #70 to #2 - thatguybehindyou (01/10/2014) [-]
The game makes an autosave at that part by itself
User avatar #78 to #70 - keltainenlumi (01/10/2014) [-]
But doesn't it overwrite it at the next opportunity?
User avatar #79 to #78 - thatguybehindyou (01/10/2014) [-]
It's a gamesave not an autosave. Sorry I typed the wrong term. Try it and you'll see.
User avatar #80 to #79 - keltainenlumi (01/10/2014) [-]
Don't have skyrim installed at the moment so I'll just believe you.
Also I stopped using the vanilla start on my 3rd character.

I just use the one that throws you to the end of the tutorial cave with most of the gear from there and gives you the character creation screen.

Well I have made, atleast 30+ characters, and I am sure some people have made more. I don't want t watch that intro 30+ times, and it's just a tip. You don't HAVE to.

I usually make a character, get to like lvl 20, and see some in-game character, and I am all like : "Oooh THAT would make a cool character", so I start over. Rinse and repeat.

One time a guy came up and asked for a hundred gold or something small like that, I don't remember.
I had many thousands and had never spent money on anything in the game.
So I just let him have it.
I was wearing legendary daedric armor at the time, and had set up my character to be able to one hit dragons with sneak attacks.

I can't help but to take anything that I can sell for more than 100 septims, even though I will likely not sell it and just stuff it in the chest at home, I'm a hoarder. I may have a problem.

we all are in games such as skyrim
User avatar #193 to #184 - accalia (01/10/2014) [-]
We either horde or we have one set of armor with our favored weaponry and sell everything else we get our hands on
User avatar #255 to #193 - ludislavonac (01/10/2014) [-]
well that one works for me too, in fallout 3 and NV I used to sell almost every weapon and other things I could get my hands on, I only kept ammo, chems and parts
User avatar #196 to #156 - fuzzyballs (01/10/2014) [-]
I pick up things that are worth at least twice it's weight
and smaller items are better than big items, because 1) the skill goes up per time you sell something, be it 1 arrows or 100 arrows, 2) that other reason I can't accurately explain where a few small items that have the same price as one big item gets you more money because of how money gets rounded down to an even number or something

I have a rule for loot of 10G/per pound. I'll make exceptions for good weapons, cool items and stuff like that but generally, I stick with that to dodge over-encumbrance.

I harvest nirnroot because I still think Sinderion wants me to return 40 nirnroots, then I remember I'm playing the wrong elder scrolls game.
#219 to #56 - John Cena (01/10/2014) [-]
So true. It has become an old habit of mine to just harvest every damn one I see even though I rarely use poisons or level alchemy. Guess it's sort of a tribute of mine to Oblivion.

What kinda mod is that?
#44 to #33 - slias (01/10/2014) [-]
If you haven't got NMM, Nexus Mod Manager, then I would suggest you get it. Installing mods in Skyrim isn't particularly hard to begin with but NMM makes it much easier to keep track of all your mods. You used to be able to use it to download mods directly, but that ****** broken now.
User avatar #45 to #21 - ragingdouchbag ONLINE (01/10/2014) [-]
tried that mod

then it just spawns you on the map akwardly and says run to helgen

i prefer the vanilla mod tyvm
User avatar #71 to #45 - alphadolan (01/10/2014) [-]
That is kinda the point the mod does as the title says "Start a new life"

it suggest that you didn't just always get caught crossing the border (although that is an option)

I like it because you can start off with a home already or already in a guild and not have to go through all the ******** and only have one choice of being on that stupid carriage.

That's just me though

I'm pissed off they didn't mix up more cultures. In morrowind, between Dunmers and Dwemers you could find indian, mayan, chinese, native american, egyptian, sumerian influences and more. In Skyrim they missed so many opportunity to create a unique culture. Germanic cultures alone had so much more to offer.
User avatar #15 to #12 - heartlessrobot (01/09/2014) [-]
I think it's kinda funny. I made a Nord with a mohawk and muttonchops, named him YARG. Heavy armor and war hammer, always went with the least intelligent things to do. Like joining the storm cloaks, or destroying the Daedric artifacts that I was able to.

Well I'm sorry if I don't wish to help out a bunch of racist pricks who can't get their own heads out of their ass long enough to realize that the Aldmeri Dominion would decimate and enslave skyrim were it not for the Empire.

The Redguard seemed to do okay without Imperial help...(plus those imperial bastards tried to behead me....)
User avatar #68 to #67 - heartlessrobot (01/10/2014) [-]
That's because the Redguards use light armor and can get the the Elf mages before they get fried. Also, from what I understand, they aren't afraid of magic like the Nords are.

The empire conquered them didn't they?
User avatar #207 to #26 - commontroll (01/10/2014) [-]
******* WRONG!

The Nords were beaten by the great and mighty God Emperor Tiber Septim in one battle. It was an ambush and they would have easily won if it weren't for his cunning. They saw how great of a leader he was and they willingly joined him.

The Empire actually never conquered Skyrim, they beat them in a decisive battle, and the Nords killed the Bretons they were fighting with before to join the better leader. They were loyal to the Empire ever since.

goddamn it

User avatar #27 to #25 - heartlessrobot (01/10/2014) [-]
Yes. Yes I do. Considering most of the Nords would be dead before they reached the magick using elves. Seriously, I did that one quest to help the Greymanes, and the entire non-essential raiding party dropped dead before we even got close.
User avatar #29 to #27 - thegrimgenius ONLINE (01/10/2014) [-]
And I've done those Stormcloak invasion quests, only 3 died total in all conquering of forts, none during the siege of Solitude. I even spawned a bunch of thalmor to kill/have fun (Already did a couple giants) and a Stormcloak group came and fought them, won, I only killed 2 thalmor out of 6. [Considering 3 vs. 4 at that rate, two mages] I think the Stormcloaks did pretty good.
User avatar #31 to #29 - heartlessrobot (01/10/2014) [-]
What difficulty? Also, that's in game, it's always in your favor in skyrim. Plus, enemies probably targeted you before the others, and you're pretty much unstoppable in-game.
User avatar #32 to #31 - thegrimgenius ONLINE (01/10/2014) [-]
Just adept (cringe) and I killed the ones targeting me (the two I had stabbed.) While I admit the stormcloaks had a slight head advantage, it was the meelee fighters they fought first, while mages shot in back.
User avatar #34 to #32 - heartlessrobot (01/10/2014) [-]
You're allowed to have an opinion when Legendary is easy for you. And the thing I don't get is, how do people survive ******* lighting bolts, balls of fire, and giant spikes of ice impaling them?
User avatar #35 to #34 - thegrimgenius ONLINE (01/10/2014) [-]
How do people survive getting a waraxe to the face?
User avatar #36 to #35 - heartlessrobot (01/10/2014) [-]
Helmet? The fact that maybe it was a glancing blow and they were unable to add dodging into the game for the most part without breaking it, so they made it so almost all blows are glancing?
#38 to #36 - thegrimgenius ONLINE (01/10/2014) [-]
I wore a helmet and Tsun one-shot decapitated me. I was on adept, and wearing a smithy improved dwarven helmet. And I can't really counter the glancing blows, but after all, the fire only burned his right half, he doesn't need that kidney.

User avatar #201 to #93 - heartlessrobot (01/10/2014) [-]
It is. It's also easier to get better armor to the level cap.
#226 to #15 - John Cena (01/10/2014) [-]

#163 to #15 - jubajubejiblets (01/10/2014) [-]
Neither party were the good guys. Also, if it weren't for Talos the world would have ended in the last game so...
Although personally I wished I could have told them both to **** off l like in New Vegas and claim the province as my own. I'd like to see the imperials or the Dominion try to stop me when I can summon lightning and kill anybody with a single blow.
User avatar #169 to #163 - boydaranga (01/10/2014) [-]
... it was martin septim who sacrificed himself to become the avatar of Akatosh and defeat mehrunes dagon in the last game, not tiber septim - talos of atmora (who's time period was in the second era 1000 years before the events of skyrim)

And yeah... Ulfric Stormcloak is a sleeper agent of the thalmor who doesn't actually know he's benefiting the thalmor by trying to take over so....
#171 to #169 - jubajubejiblets (01/10/2014) [-]
I'm not talking about the main quest I'm talking about Night's of the Nine. It was because of Talos and his blessing that the Hero of Cyrodil was able to follow Umaril the Unfeathered into another dimension to finish him off, where the power of the 8 was only strong enough to banish him before.
User avatar #197 to #171 - boydaranga (01/10/2014) [-]
OH ****

sorry
#172 to #171 - jubajubejiblets (01/10/2014) [-]
Here is a transcription of the Dialogue from the Questline:
The Prophet

As a proven guardian of this realm and a warrior the likes of which have not been seen in millenia, Talos grants you his sacred Blessing. With the ancient gifts of the Eight, and the new gift of the One, you are ready to face Umaril.
Liann

What does the Blessing do?
The Prophet

It will allow you to follow Umaril into the spirit realm upon his death. It will allow you to destroy him, body and soul, utterly and for all time. You must first kill his living body. While beyond the power of most mortals, this is only the lesser of your two tasks. His Daedric nature allows his spirit to escape into Oblivion after death. This is what Pelinal learned upon defeating Umaril the first time. But you can do what Pelinal could not. The Blessing of Talos will allow you to follow Umaril's spirit when it leaves his body. This you must do, and you must not fail. You will not, because the Nine fight with you.

Go now and fulfill your destiny. You are ready, and the Nine walk with you.
