Now that I'm about as badass as I can get sometimes I'll fight a mammoth with my soul dagger just to get it's soul or something but that's about it.
Yeah? :\ I don't think I noticed that. That's even worse! I always enchant my stuff with fortify one handed for the extra huge damage bonus. It's almost sad that you can get more damage via the Enchantment skill than you can from the entire perk tree of any of the weapon skills. >_> But hey, I won't complain. At least they can be combined! Enchantment's the best skill in the game to me. . .enhances everything else.

106 damage on the dagger, right? That's as high as I could get my daedric one. Seems to be capped for some reason, even if I use better smithing potions. :\

That's why you enchant your gear to have 100% spell cost reduction :P You have to enchant your gear to get the best use out of everything else too, so I don't see why Destruction should be any different. Level 100 enchantment with related perks should be the priority of any build no matter what you're doing. It makes anything you can possibly do better. Easier lockpicking, better sneaking, better pickpocketing, better arrow damage, better 2 handed damage, better 1 handed damage, better blocking, more stamina, lesser magic cost for any school, better armor, better magic resistance, better alchemy, better smithing, etc etc etc. It buffs up everything so I think of enchanting as a neccessity for any character, not a prerequisette for any specific one.

And with said 0% magic cost, it's brutally effective. By far the most powerful magic potential of the last 3 elder scrolls games. At least when you factor that you can do it infinitely. Trust me man, well worth the trouble. Only costs you 3 Destruction perks to get the full lightning damage

Should I be power attacking or regular swinging?
Few questions:

What's your sneak skill? (If it's 60+ you should be able to sneak up on things in doors, especially in dark caves or ruins. 80+ you should be able to sneak up on people outdoors besides guards who are hard to do anything with. 100 = you can do a lot more.

Are your boots enchanted with muffle? Even with heavy armor, muffle + the muffle perk = very quiet. I believe the "no heavy armor weight while wearing them" perk makes it less noisy too. Not that you're wearing it. Anyway, I never even equip any boots that don't have muffle on them as one of their enchants. Having an extra necklace and ring with sneak bolstering enchantments on them can help too. Enchantment really is a great skill you should invest in.


Anyway, other conditions factor in sneak checks too, such as the light of the area you're in, if guards or other "perceptive" NPCs are near by, and if you're outside or inside (inside and dark being best sneaking conditions).

You shouldn't need any more than 1 "better sneaking" perks, because you can switch your amulet and ring out for tons of better sneaking (+80-90% even without alchemy cheesing) to save yourself 4 perks. Anyway, hope that sheds some light on it, if you still needed info.

Yep, check it out the next time you're playing. Fortify one handed potions have no effect on daggers. Take a fortify one handed potion and look at your dagger. It's kinda weird.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Discussion Thread

Yesterday was carrying so much after sacking a ruin. I traveled all of Skyrim as a werewolf. ring of hircine has helped me a ton. Ive killed a few nobleman and farmers along the way but its all good.

Love how they really incorporated dawnguard. Kept hearing bout the Hall of Vigilant or whatever its called being destroyed by vamps. Ive been there on my ps3 playhrough was awesome seeing what the vampires did. Those hounds look deadly.

And working my way up in conjuration and illusion. Can calm bears and trolls now so getting up there. At 60 for enchanting, just thinking about it enchanting is so op. No longer do u have to waste perks that reduce the cost of magic in any tree. I could perform expert and master spells without using much magic. Gonna start enchanting tons of iron daggers to raise smithing snd enchanting soon.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Discussion Thread

Enchanting makes the game insanely easy if you do it right.

And I need to level smithing but don't have enough gold for ingots.

Yeah I just checked. . .wtf. -_-

But I guess at least the Headman's Axe two hander is boosted by one-handed enchants and potions. So one lame programming oversight is at least partially made up in another weapon skill with a similar programming failure. lol :\

Try enchanting your iron daggers with banish ("send summons back to oblivion" enchant), with grand or petty souls. . whichever (using the Black Star helps here a lot). You can sell those shit iron daggers for over 1k each with like no effort. Pretty much semi-infinite cash.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Discussion Thread

My 2 Dremora Lords would probably kill you before you could touch me with those weopons or id just calm you lol.

Cant wait to use Chillrend. Since im going light armor wiyh my Khajiit I will probably go glass armor until I can get light dragon armor. Easily mh fav weapon after Dawnbreaker, but havent see any Dragon weopons yet so.
