Do the main questline until dragons start spawning. Then its up to you.

The Empire vs. Stormcloak war is not the main quest and can be started/completed at any time.

Did you sell the armor? If not then you have to do 5 mini quest in each city to get the 4 big quest which give you the achievement.

Yeah I sold the armor, but it's whatever. I'll just get the rest of the achievements and then start my new character.

What difficulty are you guys playing on?

I had mine set to one above medium to start, but I'm doing a pure magic character and was basically getting raped to the point of discouragement and had to change it back for now.

I have a hard time with using a custom difficulty. I usually assume that the developers made it a certain way for certain reasons and I shouldn't mess with it because it will change the experience.

Thats really low actually

There is a "god like" bow tutorial on youtube wherin the player shows how you need to set up you alchemy, enchanting, and smithing

if you do things right you end up with a daedric bow around 600+ damage, it comes from all the bonuses from enchanting, and smithing stacking on each other

The guy said he was one shotting dragons from sneak

at that point the fun of the game would be invested in the time you spent building those skills and ultimately the weapon

Awesome. I've got 100 smithing, and I'm working on enchanting now. I guess I should start increasing alchemy too.

I guess that is using a potion, enchanting every piece with +archery and the right perks?

Yeah, kind of. From what I know it has to do with using potions to increase your enchanting a ton (and using enchantments to increase your alchemy), until you can enchant the bow with a super high archery damage bonus. Or something like that...

Heres the tutorial from his you tube video (search for "skyrim god like bow tutorial" for the video, the guys account is slicknick)

All values based on 100 skill. The skill number affects the quality of gear you craft.

If you are having trouble getting the numbers in the vid after 100 skill level make sure your game is patched. Several people have messaged me having trouble hitting the final numbers with crafting and this seems to solve their problem.

link to the alchemy recipes:
http://www.gamingreality.com/2011/11...gredients.html

Marksman: Canis Root, Elves Ear, Juniper Berries, Spider Egg

Enchanting: Blue Butterfly Wing, Hagraven Claw, Snowberries, Spriggan Sap

Smithing: Blisterwort, Glowing Mushroom, Sabre Cat Tooth, Spriggan Sap

Sorry for the rambling. Hope you enjoy.

To achieve the full numbers... absolutely completely:

1) 100 enchanting...make 25% alchemy gear.

2) Then 100 alchemy. Make enchanting potions with your +25% alchemy gear. This will be a 30% ench increase potion.

3) Drink said potion and quickly make new crafting gear. This will be 28% alchemy gear. Make new enchant potion. This will be 32% ench increase.

4) Make new gear for alchemy. It will be 29% alchemy gear.

5) Drink 32% ench potion. Now create your Smithing/ bow gear. This will be 47% bow damage. 29% smithing.

6) Create your smithing potion. This will be 130% now with your new alchemy gear.

7) 100 Smithing. Drink your smithing potion and wearing your 29% smithing gear. Enhance bow.

8) Create and drink 130% marksman potion for final numbers.

Final bonuses are 29% alchemy x 4 which creates 130% smithing potions and 32% enchanting potions.

32% enchanting potions which creates 29% crafting bonuses and 47% bow dmg.

29% smithing x 4 + 47% bow damage x 4.


The video was posted starting at step number 5 which used 30% enchanting potions /25% crafting gear because it's hella expensive to create new crafting gear 3 seperate times. I was finally able to do this later that night after gathering new gems.

You can see the bow with absolutely final numbers here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48nqs...eature=related

Math for why the alchemy enchanting loop isn't infinite:

30% enchanting potion only brings the skill enchantments 25% to 28% ( 0.3 * 10% = 3).

This 3% bonus (on 4 items) then only affects the enchanting potion from 30% to 32% (0.12* 15% = 1.8%) (2% gain)

which brings your ench potion to 32%.
32% ench potion only brings your skils from 28 to 29 (.02 * 28%= .56).

This 1% bonus (on 4 items) isn't enough to bring your enchanting potion from 31.8% to the next number. (.04 * 15% = .6)

31.8+.6 = 32.4
His final bow damage was in the 600's

Edit: my mistake, his final bow damage was 1290, and 1347 with arrows in the equation, jesus christ

I'm considering not even upgrading my enchanting or smithing (perk wise) just because the game is already pretty easy as a sneaky archer at Master diff, even with a ****ty bow.

Master difficulty is just plain retarded. It in no way makes it more challenging just stupidly hard and frustrating. You will get 2-shotted at level 4. Dragons' fire breath will bring you to sub 5% HP and they will do their kill animation right after. Do not recommend.

Expert is a bit better. Still a few BS moments, but I highlight a few. Requires you play a bit more conservatively and use your wits a bit more (path blocking, sneaking, glitching, etc). Makes it a challenge with decent difficulty, without the bull****. Would recommend to anyone who wants a challenge.

Adept is good for just playing the game for the game.
Novice is way too easy.

Forgot the others, but basically never play master unless you are über awesome @ a high level.
