    Cannon replied to Caesar's discussion Repairing: Boring, Tedious, or Immersive? in the group TES Classics:
    I wasn't especially enamored with repairing gear in Oblivion and especially Morrowind, but the way I see it, it's an act of balance. As in, bows and crossbows don't break as much as melee weapons, but need maintenance in form of stocking up arrows/bolts. ...

    Bard's Tale arrows are a ton more powerful than Oblivion's, so I'd suggest to drop the arrow limitation unless you really want to challenge yourself. I'd also switch out Mysticism for Conjuration because their magic is focused around summoning in Bard's T...

    Dragonborn - my whole goal is not to tank opponents - rather to fight intelligently via both my bow and summoning creatures (like the Bard in Bard's Tale does.)

    SpookyBorn2021 replied to Jake Johnson's discussion Starting a Bard's Tale Bard in Oblivion - seeking advice in the group TES Classics:
    I think the main consideration here is that you probably won't be able to just tank anything, combat is going to mostly rely on you just not getting hit and fighting enemies one at a time, but it's a build that seems like it's definitely supposed to do th...

    Haha I remember those two! Good times :D
    I'm at a loss, memory is too fragmented. But I do remember an Altmer lass asking for help getting Shadowbanish Wine, and a small farm inhabited by a Dunmer and his two bitchy sisters. I think there are a few inns ...

    Thanks for the advice!
    Also, are there any nice tavern wenches he can "help?"
    (Aside from Faustina and Signy-Home-Wrecker, of course.)

    Been a long time since I last played Obliv, but I don't see anything there that would make the game too hard. Blade and Marksman are good offensive skills, and Alteration and Mysticisim have some very useful spells. From memory, though, Mysticism takes ag...

    Jake Johnson posted a new discussion Starting a Bard's Tale Bard in Oblivion - seeking advice in the group TES Classics:
    I recently have began playing The Bard's Tale, and I like it.
    I have even thought about a Bard in Skyrim - but that's too obvious (Solitude has the Bard's College, after all.)
     
    But I also have TES: OblIVion on my PS3 -and I thought, "Perfect!&nbs...

    Yeah I'm not a real fan of Survival Mods, not sure why because the theory works and I do love Survival Games where that's the main focus, but I feel like they just tend to get a bit overwhelming at times. It breaks my immersion in the game because I have ...

    Paws replied to ilanisilver's discussion Oblivion Revisited! in the group TES Classics:
    I'm conflicted with survival mods or need simulation. On one hand it can really immerse you in the game, on the other can rip from immersion. Like, you're making an epic trek up Skuldafn, a long assed haul through the ancient crypts there, then you need t...

    ilanisilver replied to ilanisilver's discussion Oblivion Revisited! in the group TES Classics:
    Yeah, it would be cool to have more quests where what you do affects your state of mind and body, other than effects of combat or whatnot. The closest we have I think is Survival Mode in Skyrim, which has started messing with my game. I had to delete twic...

    That's the one! I thought that gameplay sort of mechanic was well executed and I'd like to see more of that in future TES games. Not overused, but if done right is quite memorable.

    I would probably fit in a little too well in the Shivering Isles, unfortunately. Probably end up being friends with Cutter. 
     
    I have! The one where you’re dependent on Felldew to find the Chalice? Yes. That one is fun. The tension def i...

    Impossible (or very hard) to be an atheist in Tamriel, too many spirits want your soul :D I guess life with Uncle Sheo wouldn't boring, so there's that at least. Never a dull moment! Although didn't he ban the growing of beards and enforces that pretty st...

    Ha! Yeah, playing without a follower is a lonely thing. I’d never given it much thought before, and even played Skyrim for years without a follower. But now, yeah, I need my Farkas or Vilkas or Argis or Stenvar.


    Hm, that’s a good point in TES univer...
