This phrase alone just enlightened me !! O_O You know, I was NEVER able to play with a mage !!! I tried two or three times, but it was so weak, slow and almost unable to cast decent spells at the beginning...Agricola said:just throwing a Levitation 1 spell on an enemy to slow him down felt great, especially because it's not supposed to be a negative effect.
The diary could have been indeed improved with a better way to search for informations, or maybe let the user to add manual entries...Agricola said:But I would have liked it if at least the main quest or guild quests were organised a bit more. Who would write information that's important for the future of the world down the same way as
Ahnassi says it is my turn to give her a gift. She wants just two flowers -- one coda flower for Ahnassi, and one pretty gold kanet for me.
? (real journal entry btw) Every time I returned to the game after a few monthes and had no clue what's the next step in the main quest, I had to flip through pages of useless information like that. That's not realism in my opinion, but yes, I generally liked the quest system more than the dumbed down Skyrim quests with markers for positions where people are hiding from you. Stumbling upon crypts while searching for quest locations that only had the information "go east and turn south at the big stone" was pretty cool, and finding Daedric artifacts felt WAY more rewarding.
A lot better to use a short Slowfall 1 spell, that way you can safe the scrolls. I actually use an enchanted ring with Feather 100, Jump 100, Fortify Acrobatics 100 and Fortify Strenght 100 spell on it, each effect for 1 second or so, and enchanted boots with constant Slowfall 1. These 4 effects on the ring are the only way to get a similar effect like the Scroll of Icarian Flight without modding the game to support the same effect multiple times, and if done in the right order when enchanting (yes, enchantments are cheaper in a certain order, the way the game calculates the cost is weird) they all fit on an exquisite ring. With an Enchanting skill of >150 (my shield gives me 87 as a constant enchantment) using this ring only costs one point, with 400 charges that recharge rather quickly it's the best way to get around in my opinion. Only problem is setting it up, you either need a couple of 100k gold or an enchantment skill of 1200, though the ladder is only temporarily needed, thus easier. And with the Azura's Star, a soul trap spell and a Summon Golden Saint spell it's easy to do crazy things like that all the time.Just in case you don't know this, there's this mage guy falling down from the sky near the starting town, carrying a few scrolls of icarian flight. If you use one, just follow it up with a second shortly before hitting the ground and it will brake your fall.
Weakness to common disease can really work wonders in that regard, and most players I talked to recommend becoming a vampire after you've reached a certain level and done this quest anyway. I personally always stayed being human/elf/lizard person/weird cat.I wanted to try being a vampire at some point, but it was too late, because I already was immune to every kind of plague...
Yes, it's impossible to find the download from the site, these 2 games are not even present on the store... luckily there's googleAlso TES: Arena has been "free" for a few years but the download is often not obvious. Same with Daggerfall.
