    Dunmer here, warrior/thief/marksman/mage all in one. Custom class of course

    Breton, proficient in Security, Sneak, Blade, Light Armour, Speechcraft, Destruction and Restoration.

    So I like to sneak around a lot and then fire fireballs at any enemy I spot.

    Started playing last night! Im a Breton, male. Im a Spellsword and picked the Mage sign. I actually like it.. started off with a flare spell and i could run around killing rats and goblins with this without even using my weapons i picked up along the way.

    What surprised me more was the fact that my machine... so far which is only an Athlon 2100+xp running windows 2k, 1gb of ram and Geforce 6600 256mb(nonGT) runs the game at an acceptable level. It autodetects at medium and sticks me on 640x480 but putting it at 800x600 is the same speed and even 1024x768 seems perfectly fine too. Even with a most of the detail on. If i stick everything up hight it will probably start smoking :D But im happy with it.

    Great game though getting people to like you is VERY different to morrowind.. have not got the hang of it yet.

    I just started last night. Argonian, Thief, Knight.

    I have PM1.8GHz & ATI X300 card and it autodetects 640x480 for me as well. I tried 800x480 and it worked ok. Didn't had the guts to try a bigger res but if u say 1024x works ok for u I will try my luck :)

    Did any of you guys went underwater yet? The details there are barely visible and I wonder if thats the why it is or it happens because the graphics are set to minimum to work on my machine.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,389 ✭✭✭✭Saruman


    yes went underwater as soon as i got out of the prison. There is some ruin on the other side of the river so i swam across and some fish attacked me... magic does not work in water :D So got out a sword. Anyway water is murky but i could see the bottom.. Since the game is trying to be real then the water should be murky. Not crystal clear.

    I believe this is a limitation on all GPUs and settings, but there are some mods out already which increase the visibility underwater (I haven't tried them myself).

    I'm a Dark Elf, nt 100% sure of my class but think Battlemage, I use magic and blade equally to bring justice to the land! Or something like that.... :) Great game so far.

    I don't think our character's would get along very well...im playing a very evil ninja.

    I love my ninja. Blade, Marksman, Athletics, Acrobatics, Sneak, Security and Illusion. Also learned a but load of alchemy for classic ninja potions.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,560 ✭✭✭Boro


    Dark Elf, born under the Thief sign. Custom class, specialised in combat. (strength + Agility) Major skills - blade, marksman, security, sneak, destruction, restoration, light armour. Lot of fun, I partiucularly enjoy sneaking around and shooting people in the back of the head :)

    Hey Zillah or anyone, where the hell do i get an invisability spell, its says Bravil is the mages guild of illusion but they wont sell that spell to me, do I have to do some guild mages missions before i can get it or do i have to go to the arcane university.

    Please help my illusion hasn't gone up once and its a major skill :mad:

    Here are a couple concerning the water draw distance:

    I think you load the esp files from the "Game Files" section in the Oblivion launcher window, but I haven't really looked at mods or modding at all yet so I could be wrong. Remember that mods can conflict both the orginal games files and with other mod files thus potentially screwing up your game.

    Gah, I thought I was being original with my ninja, though I went for destruction and mysticism instead of athletics and acrobatics.

    Joined the dark brotherhood right away and for my very first mission got to answer a question that's been plagueing mankind for centuries.

    Why do people pick acrobatics and athletics?

    they aren't really good for anything.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,839 ✭✭✭balkieb2002


    They're picked as they're really easy to level up as you do them all the time as if they're your major then you'll easily level up.

    Also handy for us wannabe theif/assaisins making our quick getaways!

    I'm a wood elf (whos a vampire/thief/assassin... your general bad-guy) and an expert in sneak and marksman :)

    You sir have no bloody idea what you're talking about. Acrobatics dictates your jumping distance (you should see my character leap onto roof tops) while athletics dictates your running speed (add that to my characters vampiric 119 speed and he's faster than most horses).

    I don't remember exactly, I didn't have any problems. Theres a guy in the Brotherhood hang out that certainly sells it. However, be damned to invisiblity, chameleon is the one you want. Lets you fight and dance et al without breaking it.

    ?!!? How can you have a ninja that isn't able to zip around and leap onto rooftops?

    I loved that mission. I can't believe the ninja vs pirate thing didn't occur to me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,370 ✭✭✭Timans


    lol, sorry Zillah, was only asking in my quest for a ninja.

    :( no need to be mean. although, what can you expect from a Vamp Assassin. :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,285 ✭✭✭Smellyirishman


    Playing a
    Wood Elf; Blade, Marksman, Athletics, Acrobatics, Sneak, Restoration (Is that right?) and Light Armour.

    Trying to play the good guy, have not stole yet just sneak around in dungeons and tear people down with those x3 sneak multipliers. Liking the class a lot, will only be a matter of time before he turns evil.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,297 ✭✭✭ionapaul


    Turns out I'm a Nightblade rather than a Battlemage. Or well, my lad still kicks a whole lot of arse, spells from afar, longsword up close :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,304 ✭✭✭✭koneko


    High Elf - Nightblade. V high destruction and I'm getting my conjuration up higher now too (nice to have a summon).
    Sneak and security aren't among my majors, but they're high anyway, v nice to pickpocket people (espesh when they're sleeping), loaded now.
    Also you can't beat the skeleton key, I love this thing.

    Dark Elf (Dunmer)
    Warrior (Blade and Heavy Armour)/Mage (Destruction)/Thief

    For the first time ever in an RPG I'm 100% happy with my choice after getting into the game.

    Umm hes right, everyone gets Acrobatics Athletics anyway so picking them was a bad move, i also picked them thinking it would help but everyone gets the leveling up on them.

    What in the name of Lord Dagon are you talking about? Class skills increase much faster than other skills, thats the only reason I took them, so whatever else you're imagining its not very important.

    You're much better off not picking those two as class skills and just running and jumping about while playing - there are more useful skills to pick as class skills.
