Jumping off the water is tricky but once you get it down its easy.


Oh, just wondering, the system will not register you as a Journeymen or a Master in a skill if that skill is only bumped up to that level by augmentation right? You actually need to achieve it, correct?
Correct.

My natural sneak skill is at 100, Master.  Is jumping on the water easy to do?

Yesterday I assembled the final piece of my totally badass equipment.  I still want a full set of Glass Armour but I have to level up a bit before I can start seeing that. 

I have a reusable grand soul gem (Azura's Star), a sword that has a two minute soul trap (Umbra), a glass bow with 25 Frost Damage, a ring of Night Eye, an Amulet of 180ft Detect Life, a set of armour (Mithril) that will make me completely invisible all the time (107% Chameleon), and the fastest horse in the game which incidentally can't die (Shadowmere). I even have a staff that casts Paralysis. At this point, I don't need to use magic anymore, but with Conjuration over 75 I can summon some pretty bad-ass monsters to fight for me which is pretty cool.

I used the armour yesterday to clear out a cave of Necromancers, it was a cake walk.  I may just stop using it because it makes the game incredibly easy.  Or I may take off the gauntlets and just have Chameleon at 90%.

Oh, this is the last time you will see Shadowmare... I uh... kind of lost her....  ::)

Go back to where you first grabbed Shadowmere, he should be there again.

I don't see a point in buying the Horse Armour.  I have Shadowmere now, and he's unkillable, he just falls unconscious and gets back up shortly afterwards.

Yeah, my skill jumped from 48 to 88.  But it's like wearing a ring or amulet that boosts your stats so I'm still an apprentice.  Not that it matters, I can just keep on clicking Auto-Attempt until something opens.

There is a quest from a Daedric shirne North East of Leyawiin that's pretty easy to do.  When you complete the quest your Security skill is boosted 40 points and you get a skeleton key.  The skeleton key is a lockpick that never breaks. 

*boggle* me want!

Yeah, the quest was so easy that now I feel like I'm cheating whenever there is a lock to pick.  The skeleton key is worth about 5000 gp, and I know I'd never get that much gold for it.  Besides, why sell something so valuable?  I've still got about 80 regular lockpicks, I should just sell them.

I've taken a break from BF2, at least until the 1.3 patch comes out.  Right now I"m playing Oblivion, Oblivion and oh yeah, Oblivion.

The horse you get from the Dark Brotherhood can't be killed.  He just falls unconscious, gets up again and keeps on fighting.  What a great mount. 

Yesterday I did this quest outside of Lleyoin (sp) and netted myself a skeleton key.  It's bascially an unbreakable lockpick.

Just too lazy to get up and go sit at a desk, huh?

Why would I want to?  Gaming from a couch is so much more comfortable.  Those Xbox 360 players that say their experience is better because they're on a couch and using an HDTV got nothing on me.

I sit about five or six feet back on a couch.  I use a binder beside me as a mouse-pad and the keyboard rests on my lap easily.

Portable Games / Re: PSP homebrew? anyone here make homebrew?
« on: March 29, 2006, 06:25:54 am »
Corrent.

I'd be really interested in a homebrew program that would let me access the movies on my computer's harddrive and stream them wirelessly to my PSP.  Music or anything else as well.

I went through my second Oblivion gate yesterday.  I got almost to the tower before I ran completely out of arrows.  I'm a thief/assassin/marksman character so when I run out of arrows I'm really screwed.  I do have a good illusion and conjuration skill though.  I was just going to leave the plane of Oblivion when it struck me that I could probably sneak my way to the top of the tower, use invisibility when needed and just steal the Sigil Stone.  I did just that and now I plan to just steal the stones of all the Oblivion gates instead of fighting my way through to them.

I would also like to know if Widescreen resolutions will be available out of the box for the PC with the correct aspect ratios (16:9, 16:10).  Will we be able to select whatever aspect ratio we want or will it tied to our resolution?
