I'm guessing this guy won't be so tough on a PC with mods that let you get all skill trees and craft some crazy stuff.

I'm gonna kite him to the top of the 5,000 stairs and fus-ro-dah him right off for sport.

Or the consoles. My khajit has a bow that does about 260,000 damage a shot thanks to a couple alchemy exploits.

I do plan on killing this guy using normal, non-exploited means, but if he turns out to actually be a biatch like everyone describes, I'm not afraid to pull out my "Dragonbone Bow of Shang Tsung" (it has leeching and soul trap, thought it fit well)

It's hard to level up after a certain point. You have to use skills you don't actually have any use for. I'm wandering around Skyrim pickpocketing people and casting "detect life".

Yeah, I'm gonna guess that he'll be hard only if you're unprepared. Just from what I see in the article, the disarm shout and an armored troll/companion (maybe even a few summons) should wreck him.

My conjurer has a small army following him at all times. Two thrall mages, Serana, and an armored dog. Total, you'll end up with 7 combatants once they finish their summoning (it can get buggy, some of them disappear randomly). I'm working on finishing heavy armor+block+ one handed+ restoration to make myself unkillable.

James!: They made expansions for Skyrim? I did not know.


right, I got ridiculously bored with the game after killing a half dozen dragons by level 8 or so, and then ran into a bug where i had to get someone out of a cell, and they got stuck, and the only way i could get them out was to go back an hour or so of save points to reload him. blah blah blah.

Probably the most boring RPG genre game I've seen in .. well, ever.

A single cazador is tough. Often times, however, there are more than one. Imagine 3 of those coming at you.

They neglect to mention this mob wasn't of their own design. Their compilers, so fed up with their heeds of warnings being ignored for so long...called upon this sinister monster to avenge them.

Bah, I can knock them but Bethesda has consistently brought out compelling worlds of vast entertainment, and that's just editing the .ini files to max out the eye candy.

Just 15 times? I've been trying to beat them for a couple weeks, and I've only gotten close once (one F*CKING hit away!) For the moment I've given up on them and am hanging around in the Valley of Drakes.

I finally got to the point where I could kill these guys with regularity.

// boone as a companion
// expertly repaired fully automatic weapons with extended mags
// lots of antivenom and stimpacks
// high stealth
// take one aimed shot with a rifle to disable the wings, then switch to the automatic weapon and spray the shiat out of them.

They did say that PC AND PS3 players would be getting it early next year. Still no luck on dawnguard or hearthfire yet, but they're supposedly really sure they'll get Dragonborn out on all platforms.

I'm a level 81. I have a sword that one hits dragons and does nearly 100k damage. I also have a bow that does nearly 100k damage, so I'm not exactly shaking in my daedric magic resist boots.

THIS. I finally stopped playing (with Dawnguard completed) at level 80. Now I'm going to have to do all kinds of random things to meet the new baddy. I play on Xbox so I'm confined to my 247 damage war axes which should make that encounter pretty interesting. Still, the depth of the content and size of the new explorable area may make the leveling a bit easier than expected.

/god I sound like a nerd. look what Skyrim did to me! I've never even played D&D or Warcraft!
/ok, but I did play Eye of the Beholder on my 486

I doubt anyone who plays stealth is going to have a hard time dealing with him.

He shows up, use Shadow Warrior. Roll. Backstab.

Cast invisibility. Backstab. Rinse. Repeat, if it's even necessary at that point. Even without insane alchemy enhanced weapons.

Of course, then your game will crash and save file will corrupt, because it's a Bethesda game.

Yeah, I'm somewhere in the mid 60s, and unless I spend a fark ton of time doing boring crap like pickpocketing and buying/selling useless crap just to level some stealth or speech skills, I'm as high as I'm going to be going. Hell, the last few levels have been because I've been grinding stats in skills I just haven't used much (either magic or combat styles I didn't specialize in). It just started becoming a job and the result is I haven't fired up Skyrim in months. I doubt I will, either. It was a fun game and a good value for my entertainment dollar, but I just don't feel the desire to create a new character and try another style or grind my way to level 80.

I can see why others would, but I think I've had my play out of this one.

Nadie_AZ: In honor of those lethal bastards....


Heh, they're bad, but not _that_ bad. I typically have far more trouble with night-stalkers (and sometimes nightkin) because the usual anti-cazador tactic (a solid V button to the face) doesn't work on cloakers until they've bunked something unpleasant up each of your nostrils.
 
2012-12-04 07:27:48 PM
I liked the shadow-version of yourself you had to fight in the Shivering Isles expansion of Oblivion. That was a super tough boss (since it's you, +5 or 10 levels I think), and he drops some seriously badass jet black weapons once you finally kill him.

i'm a very... prepared player. i have a hard time comprehending how someone could NOT have various little tools that are adaptable to any given situation. hell, i carry around more situational potions than i do healing potions, for those times where i need to be able to resist whatever or disable some resist on some mob. you laugh at fire? well how do you like my 300% weakness to fire poison on a flaming arrow, biatch?

my favorite bow enchanting pair is shocking/paralyze. tazer arrows ftw.

Oh. That's a cool enemy.

I did one full play thru with Skyrim. I tried 3 more times and had one character who was leveling well, but hadn't done the main quest at all (so no dragons).

It just seemed to me that there were more dungeons, ruins and raiders than there were 'normal' people. I could not get fully immersed because of this. At least in Fallout, you expect that. In Skyrim, I figured the empire and the kingdoms had more power over normal day to day affairs. They all seemed locked up in their cities with everyone else left to rot.

Much better than Blizzard's idea for Diablo 3:

- Can't use anything halfway decent until level 60
- Once you reach level 60, nothing to do except play the same campaign you literally just played four times
- Solution: Level up 100 more times by playing the same campaign you literally just played five times

Having not played Skyrim (don't have the computer to run it), I'm wondering - is levelling the same as it is in Oblivion?

Because I wasn't real thrilled with that.
