Skyrim Thoughts: My Take on the Elder Scrolls Series
As a seasoned player of the Elder Scrolls series, I can confidently say that Skyrim is the best installment in the franchise so far. Having beaten the previous four games, including Daggerfall, Arena, Morrowind, and Oblivion, and all their expansions/DLC, I have become heavily invested in the modding community for Morrowind and Oblivion. Although I did not care much for the first two games, Morrowind was a game-changer for me, and Oblivion was even better. Now, Skyrim has taken things to a whole new level.
One of the things that I love about Skyrim is the perfect match between the music and what is happening in the game at any given time. The graphics are also a vast improvement over previous Elder Scrolls games, and the gameplay has been revamped to be much stronger. However, there are still a few things I dislike about the game.
Moving on to my tips and tricks, I would advise being very careful about what perks you choose. There are major limits on what you can and cannot get, so it’s essential to save perks until you are familiar with the game and know how you want to build your character. Also, don’t limit yourself throughout the game; try to vary your tactics to find out what you like the most.
In terms of making money, buying a horse can be very helpful, as you can run while on the horse even if you’re loaded down with too much weight. You can also pick up fruits and vegetables from different farms and sell them back to the farm owner. Chopping wood is another way to make money; you can chop wood and sell it to the woodsman for around 5g per piece of wood.
When it comes to my character build, I primarily use dual wielding and archery, with supplemental magic from time to time. I use perks as needed, staying away from two-handed weapons and shields. I also plan to invest in Alchemy, Enchanting, and the school that governs around Necromancy. Although my use of magic is only supplemental, most of the supplemental magic I end up using is going to be necromantic in nature.
