Weird I just recently started a Elder Scrolls Group. http://groups.ultimate-guitar.com/tesa/. Anyways I've played both Morrowind and Oblivion on pc and xbox and I don't understand why everyone bashes Oblivion so much. Sure a lot was taken out from what Morrowind had but things were added too and I felt it the environment was very easy to get into and figuratively put you inside the game. Since I've had it for pc though I honestly can't go back to console Oblivion, I just have way to many mods now.


I personally think the combat system for Oblivion was the best so far. It kept the whole mathematical elements of combat and made using a weapon and magic together so much easier. I just miss the amount of features from Morrowind and types of weapons and armour.

The easter eggs in Oblivion are better than in Morrowind though!

Didn't really like Oblivion as much as Morrowind or Fallout. It lacked variety, even more so than Fallout.

I have over 700 saves in Oblivion. I create so many characters and have multiple saves for them


thats my issue with the game. i only beat the main story once, but i have like 40 saves (1 per character) cause i cant decide what to play as! its kind of annoying that i cant beat the game cause when i start i wana change to something else, but its nice to have that much customizations and "classes".

I lost all my TES-IV saves when my old comp broke.
I might re-install it.

You guys seem to realy love III, didn't the animation bug the hell out of you?
I can genuinely say i enjoyed IV more.

Also, a TES MMO would be awful, much like any other.
For one reason!
It would be populated by characters with screen-names, eg: xXxrandomword&numberxXx
I hate seeing beautiful online fantasy worlds destroyed by the babbling idiots within.

EDIT: Fallout 3 is a good game, but it's not TES is it.

If it came down to deciding which out of III and IV was better I'd be stuck to be honest.

As for the animation, yes. Yes it is very odd at times, but it is an older game now so I let that one off. The thing is with Oblivion that I could never figure out is why every character I've made walks in such a camp way. Then there's the whole jumping thing! But at the end of the day, these things don't make the game.

I don't know. Khajiit and argonian tend to be the less strong races. I mean usually a would elf is a better rogue character.

Dark Elf > Wood Elf.

The Dunmer are just so balanced. You can end up doing almost anything you want, except perhaps some spells that take a jizzload of magicka.

Besides, the Wood Elves are tiny.

Yeah but I find Marksman not a very good skill. I mean, if you want to use if effectively, you have to run and shoot, which takes up fatique, which will make you miss more often.

Who wants balance?

I'd rather have a character that is great in one of the major skills (combat, magic, theiving) than someone who is a Jack of all Trades.

That being said, my theif does have some magic stuff, but it all goes with his Intelligence.

Alchemy and Conjuration = Intelligence. Why not eh?

You wouldn't rather be great in all of the skills? There's not a thing my Dark Elf can't do. Except, perhaps, Alchemy and Restoration. But that's because I just upped my endurance enough so that it's impossible for me to die unless I stand still for a few minutes while being attacked. It's wonderful.

Well the dark elves are the best like characters if you don't want to specialize. If you want magic you go with High elf. If you want strength you go with orc. If you want a rogue you go with wood elf. Now there can be arguments made for a nord as melee and a Breten for magic, but the Dark Elf can be a weaker of any of these. They're the best battle mages by far.

Hey quick question actually to do with levelling.

With Major/Minor/Misc skills, what is the maximum level you can make them? (I'm not talking about using potions or spells. Just naturally levelling them up.)

And what about with Attributes? (Intelligence, Strength, Speed)

What ever is 100 of all your minor skills.

100. It is possible to get all of them to 100, if you go to jail enough.

As for the attributes, I'm not sure. My character is level 40-something. At some point it just becomes useless to even try to level up.

And why do you have to go to jail to get them all to level 100?

I just assumed you can get everything to 100. What I mean was, is 100 the maximum level?

Why do you have to go to jail to get them all to 100?

Because you don't get shit for being a hero anyway. I like how you can be the Archmage, Fighters Guild champion, savior of the fucking world and Owyn of the arena still thinks his grandmother can beat you.

LOL yes! not to mention the "perks" for being the leader of those guilds are absolute crap. u can collect loot and money once or twice a month. my character only ever sleeps for 1 hour at a time to level up, so only a few days go by before im leader of everything and i get sick my character. i hope thats fixed in the next one, like have more time go buy, or more advantages to sleeping longer and everyday.

I've joined the thieves guild I now have to complete Big Helende's quests and that other Redguard dude's.

Also I'm going to join the Morag Tong and House Hlaalu and probably a few others.

Can someone explain the difference between joining the Imperial Legion and Imperial Cult?

The Cult is religious and the Legion are soldiers. I don't know much more because I never joined them. (Well, I joined the Legion, but didn't feel like carrying the cuirass with me to talk).

New Vegas isn't being developed by Bethesda (they're publishing it), and they're not at all involved with Project V13. Todd Howard recently said that we shouldn't expect TES V any time soon. Bethesda are working on some project, but they're not willing to discuss it, yet.

The developer of Doom 4, id, was bought by the company that owns Bethesda a few months ago. It's another game that will be published but not developed by Bethesda. So, Bethesda is freely working on whatever they want to, but aren't saying what it is at this moment.
