I asked this. There's a place in the MIdden under the College. You need certain items including a broom. Not sure what else but I don't use staves other than Sanguine Rose.

Cool, will have to look at that when I get home

I did find that forge a long time ago and keep finding recipes for it which I've just stored so time to dig them out I think. I don't use staffs but feel I'm missing out if I don't make one

As with many of the cooler items, by time I was powerfull enough to make a staff, I was so powerfull it was a waste of time.

Because very large threads cause the forum to slow to a crawl. so they split them up to avoid this.

Anyway, first thread in gaming, afaik, to get a second part!!

I have to comment in here just so the thread will show up as one I've already commented in.

I thought someone had the sheer cheek to make a new one and call it the same thing !

I'm getting fed up doing side quests. On with the main questline next time I turn on the game. Once the story itself is finished I'll see what I'm gonna do.

I think that (by the way the thread has been going - slowly) over the past couple of weeks others might be waning too!!

Came across a random event today...Two Dragons vs a group of Ice Trolls up in the mountains.

I sat back an watched in amazement, but all of a sudden my horse decided to join in on the fight and ended up horse meat before i could figure out what he was playing at.


Another random event that I thought was quite funny was a guy that came running out of nowhere and demanded that I hold on to some stuff that he had stolen (crappy iron armor.) After I had taken it he said that if I double crossed him Id be sorry. I took this as insult so I unleashed an arrow into the back of his skull. As I was looting his corpse a guard came running and asked if Id seen a man pass by. 'No, not seen anyone' as I stood on the corpse of the dead thief. The guard believed me and moved on. .

Went into the Inn in Ivarstead and the NPC's were in attack mode. Discovered that there was a CAVE BEAR inside the Inn.

Does anyone else give their items custom names when they create them?

Decided to call my ring the Imperial Ring.

Very creative I know

Just finished watching Todd Howard's speech at DICE 2012.

Sadly no DLC announcement as many were hoping for but one section of the speech was very interesting.

He said that when the developers/programmers of the game had the final product, they spent a week adding their own features/mods into Skyrim.

There were lots of great stuff they created, off the top of my head there were Mounted dragons, Lycanthropy perks, Fire and ice arrows, a werebear! Fat giants, Killcams for your spells and arrows, Completely dark caves for you horror seekers out there, the ability to become a vampire lord with more perks which looked awesome, Horse mounted combat, Spears and demonic Horses/mounts

The best of the lot though had to be a giant mud crab someone had created, biggest thing i have ever seen in the Elder Scrolls games (Actually Gigantic not a 5 foot tall mudcrab )

Just amazes me how this stuff never made it into the game, it all looked incredible, fun and varied.

Can only hope they add this stuff in future DLC.

I tend to rename things so they appear together in the inventory, makes switching between costumes easier.
(Crafting Amulet, Crafting Boots, Crafting Ring,Thief Amulet, Thief Boots, Thief Ring etc)

Not creative either, but at least it is productive

Would love to try some of those especially mounted dragons.

There was a large Mudcrab in Oblivion so I hope they are going for one the size of a Mammoth

Got infected with vampirism last night (not me, my lvl 20 char!). Wondering if it's worth letting it grow into full blown vampirism. Never had the chance on my lvl 62 char as he joined the companions.

Is it any fun playing as a vampire in Skyrim? I enjoyed it in Oblivion for a while then the not being out in daylight thing became a major pain.

Apprarently, it is not nearly as fun in Skyrim. The bonuses suck (no pun intended), it much harder to keep feeding (you seem to wake everyone up automatically), and much harder to cure yourself once VLevel 4. Might be worth giving it a trial, but make sure you keep a save from before you go full blown.
If you really want to, the DB is good to be in as they dont attack Vampires, so you have somewhere to go, and can feed off them
