Favorite Sword: Dragonbane Katana/Mehrunes Razor dual-wield
Favorite Bow: I use two: Nightingale Bow with Daedric Arrows for max damage or Bound Bow for soul trapping (and the draw is faster than regular bows)
Favorite Armor: Nightingale Armor & Boots with Orcish Bracer of Extreme Archery & Linwe's Hood
Proudspire Manor is where I have all of my stuff...it's fully furnished although I never use the second floor for anything as the Thane's Suite is on the third floor, and the first floor is where the Alchemy Lab and Enchanting Table are. I own Honeyside, & Breezehome in Whiterun as well. I still keep all of my smithing supplies at Breezehome. It's small but functional except for no enchanting table and right next door to Warmaiden's. Although not a "home" the Arch-Mage's Quarters is a nice place to call home too.
Also, don't forget to do your Alchemy...every potion counts toward leveling up.
To level up combat skills, just find a Stormcloak Encampment and fight fight fight. Leveled my Block about 10 times last night. It's good for leveling Destruction magic too, as the commander yields and then comes back with a full heath bar.
It has been confirmed we'll be able to tie the in-game knot. Will this be something we'll pursue? I've learned that your spouse will cook for you, give the occasional gift, and can be used as a companion who will participate in combat and also be able to carry items for you. Sound interesting?
Which crafting skill will you be utilizing in Skyrim? Will you be a crafter of the finest weapons and armor? Perhaps you will concoct alchemical potions of healing or maybe deadly poisons. Or will you use your knowledge of the arcane to become an Enchanter?
These crafting skills will be available...
