    I think the Steel Plate and Ebony armors look the best and most functional. Many of the other higher armors look wickedly awesome, but impractical, as they are covered in excess metal sticking out.

    it's disappointing yeah, even the ebony mail actually has female shaped breastplate
    while female daedric looks to be just a mere skin wrap of the male armor...
    pretty disappointing considering it's an endgame armor

    also I was hoping for some reactions from people lol but nothing
    also isn't it funny how they are able to tell your identity without difficulty ? despite you cant see anything.. while wearing the armor

    Rumors spread like wildfire, I suppose?

    That would explain the fact that as soon as you shout randomly, in public, ANYWHERE(even if it's near some poor prisoner in a bandit camp, or near a damn friendly HAGRAVEN) a courier will instantly arrive and deliver you a message from some anonymous 'friend'.

    for me the couriers only appeared once a guard told me to stop shouting. witch only happens in towns & villages.

    dragonbone armor is ugly as shit... just because of that I switched over to light armor.

    Dragonscale does look kinda cool, though.
    Is dragonbone really that bad?

    I'd like some really tight black leather armor P8 or something..
    the armors are very generic IMO but I do favor the looks of daedric helmet from the side

    anyways armor is overrated, I still get one-hitted in the rare cases I actually get hit

    Hmm, I just killed a dragon (which for some reason didn't give a soul, I think it's a bug), and when I got to the stone ring that teaches you a new word, I got 3 at once (all for the same shout). Is this a coincidence? Did anybody else ever learn three words at once? I'm level 39 right now and it's the first time this has happened.

    throw voice is learnt all words at once if that is the shout you obtained, also dragons actually respawn (the ones at dragon lairs) the respawned dragons no longer yield a soul if you have killed them beforehand, you probably killed him and forgot about it
    or yeah it can also be a bug, wouldn't be surprised
    but the above still applies

    it's similar to how bandits keep respawning even on cleared zones

    All of the armors look bad ass. Impractical? Maybe, but it is a fantasy game, it's not like anything in it is practical, dragons, people who can breathe fire... Daedric in no way looks impractical to me, it's design provides for a certain intimidation factor that the others just don't provide, however the eyes being completely blacked out in a very large oval is a little cheesy, because light would shine in their anyway... In my opinion Ebony is the most bad ass looking of all, especially with a hood. Dwarven reminds me of a Roman crusader lol.

    So what is the best Light Armor? seeing as I'll be playing this for EVER I'll probably get both heavy and light to 100. :D

    Its a matter of opinion, Personally I like the deadric female armor and it feels rather bad-ass and the gloves are nice. (The ring on a deadric armor hand however looks out of place, they should have fitted them in better and more than one ring.. At least two right?). :thumbs_up:

    But I do agree that the other armors are fairly ugly looking... most disappointing being the dragon-bone one, the ebony is just to "slim" looking.

    Haven't actually tried dragon plate, but I am fairly certain it will look similarly stupid. :smile:

    Oh and I say: Nightingale armor and some of those other skin tight armors are worse. But mostly the nightingale one.. huge disappointment as I was expecting something really really badass god like.. And it just looks like someone dressed in latex.

    Yeah exactly, that's the one. And I did kill a Dragon there before. I only came back because of a priest I wasn't able to beat earlier, so the 3 words were a great surprise. :p

    dragonscale armor is the best light armor
    it's also rather cheap (only dragon scales,leather,iron and leather strips)
    another option is glass armor which on legendary (with all perks and maxed light armor skill) provides actually more armor than dragon scale for some reason..
    162 glass vs 160 dragon scale (chestpiece)
    it is still possible to add more than +40 armor rating to that via enchanting+smithing potion (but that would require both alchemy and enchanting to be at 100 and have appropriate perks)

    disappointing is that you can't re-enchant nightingale armor
    or any already enchanted gear for that matter

    also
    That is a regular ring actually, equipped rings appear on the armor so you can't do much about that boo

    Indeed, at Shearpoint, where you learn Throw Voice, you encounter both a Dragon and a Dragon Priest at once(Elder Dragon in my case, but I guess it's random), you learn all 3 words at once. I've read(e.g: Someone spoiled it for me.) somewhere that you can learn some other shouts all at once, but they're main-quest related(Spoiler:
    Call Dragon
    ).


    Sauron! :D
    Although, I guess Ebony armor would fit better for that purpose(black), or at least, a recolored Daedric.

    so *derp* turned out smithing is the most borked skill in game
    buy iron ingon and leather strips from a blacksmith supplier and spam iron daggers, wait 48 hours for the blacksmith vendor to restock, rinse & repeat
    got 2 levels and 100 in smithing in 15 minutes voila ! daedric legendary I mean, in case I get a whole new set, lol
    do not have daedric perks just +135% smithing from enchants/potion

    That's true, you can do that, but you could also buy leather and leather strips and craft leather bracers. For those of us who want to maintain SOME level of roleplay - Don't use the retarded "Wait" function. Collect your damn leathers by yourself(bears and wolves and sabre cats are VERY common, assuming you don't fast travel).

    I did that, and got at the very least 5 levels, and level 100 in smithing, but it took a day or two. (I just crafted leather bracers whenever I stopped in Whiterun to sell off a bunch of enchanted Ebony junk).

    Alright, nice. Couldn't help but read the spoiler, but looking forward to that. :)

    Oh and anyone knows what sleeping is good for, besides the well rested effect (which I'm immune for as a werewolf)? If I don't sleep for a while, people start saying I should visit the inn etc, but I still don't have any negative effects. I haven't slept in like a week, I think.

    No negative effects at all, so yeah - you are the invincible hero who can fight a month without doing as much as blinking - or at least my character never blinked xD You don't have to pee at all -> huh?, you can eat a horse to regenerate faster, maybe even two, and your armor wont burn even if you stand in dragonfire for an hour or more o_O As a real, tabletop roleplayer these small things annoy me ^^

    I really love the game apart from these, but my video card cant really handle it, so I bought a new one.... Which turned out to be broken, so I had to go back with it. They should have exchanged it for a new one as I was within 3 days of sale, yet they ignored me and sent it to the factory for repairs, which is around 15 days :(

    I have slept once altogether, seeing I'm alive for months since I slept I doubt there are any negative effects of not sleeping
    I don't think there is anything other into it than rested/well rested/lover's comfort bonus and useless hp/mp/stamina restore
    also if you have the lover stone active you can't get rested
    but I use only the steed stone so *shrug*

    Sleeping is good for wasting time, but not breaking your roleplay by waiting for 9 hours.
