Makes sense, my Dragonborn has basically conquered Skyrim, he's taken care of every major threat and become about as strong as he can possible be, he's become a hero with no evil left to fight and no adventure left to have.

My understanding of the lore is that most, if not all, of VVvardenfell was destroyed after the Oblivion Incident except for a bit the Telvani saved. I think Mainland Morrowind was also conquered by Skyrim and the Black Marsh?

So yes between that and the trailer, I'd say it's just Solstheim and maybe that little bit of Telvani territory.
>> No. 165580
The gates opened up all over. Nearly every city and town fell that wasn't the head city for a house or a faction. Save for the Redoran cities which actually put up a decent fight. Everyone still alive in the southern end of Vvardenfell fell back to Ghostgate in hopes that the combined forces of the Buoyant Armigers and the remaining forces they had could hold.

After this the Nords and Orcs attacked and Vivec disappeared. Vivec's absence caused the Ministry of Truth, a space rock the god previously stopped from crashing into the the planet, to once again begin its descent eventually crashing into the city and causing Red Mountain to explode. With the volcano awake again the Telvanni erected a giant magic bubble around their fifth of the landmass to preserve it from the destruction.

After that was all over the Argonians attacked with a massive force. The remaining native Dunmer were forced to scatter and give up their land, the largest grouping of them making home in Solstheim.
>> No. 165587
Argonians, however, weren't interested in holding the land if I heard it right.
>> No. 165593
I just checked the wiki, and apparently most of the non-Telvanni territory is under Argonian control and The Infernal City laid it out mostly as volcanic marshes. So, really, most Argonian gained territory are places where only an Argonian could thrive anyway.

As exited as I am the fact leveled enemy stats exists in the game is still a massive turnoff. Either break the game and make stupidly overpowered weapons or spend the next hour spamming the same attack over and over again.

You know if there was an expansion or whole new game based around taking things back to the Thalmor on their own turf it would be cool if it featured the Maormer.

>> No. 167283
The Aldmeri Dominion has interesting politics. Sea serpent riding chameleon elves, necromantic Daedra-worshipping giant sea-slugs, and pretty much the entire continent of Tamriel as enemies. For allies they have the shapeshifting, cannibalistic wood elves and pet talking giant apes.

Really, the elder scrolls has interesting, if crazy, lore, and we're stuck with Cyrodil and Vikingland as games. It's like they're afraid to do anything we haven't seen in video games before.

The Thalmor have alot of strange and impressive looking enemies in thier homelands, the race odd-looking sea elves and thier sea serpents of war, the slug-like Sload nation. They also have interesting allies, the ape-like Imga who venerate the Altmer and wear fancy cloaks to try and be more like them.

Sending the Dragonborn to launch a one-wo/man commando war to weaken the Thalmor or simply search thier nation for something of importance would be a great chance to finally show off all these intereasting cultures

Though if we're talking people who are awesome and need more screentime I say bring back EBONARM, The Black Knight, Man-God of War!

Durnehviir is awesome, I'm making heavy use of him in my second save where I basically do everything opposite of my first playthrough. Also make heavy use of the Soul Tear shout since I did the quest much earlier in the game its the most powerful, and only three word, shout I have at the moment.

Hey I got a question about the Elder Scrolls universe, are the different player/civilized species capable of interbreeding? Do you ever see characters of such unions in any games?

It's not wildly discussed in "polite society", which is the excuse the game producers give to avoid it altogether. But they have touched on it.



A few of the races, like Bretons, are suggestions to be mixes of Mer (which Orcs technically are) and Men. "Phylogeny" is still your best reference for this, as well as the Lore entry on Races in the UESP.

I think this is why Morrowind is so much better than Oblivion and Skyrim (although Skyrim is also good, just in different ways). Vvardenfell is so completely alien, and once you get over Morrowind's couple entry barriers (usually by modding them out, like dice roll melee combat), it's a blast.

I just want a greater chance to stick it to the Thalmor. Even if it's not enough to crush their regime entirely, then at least seriously hurt their hold on the Empire.

Hell, I'd even settle for an entire expansion devoted to messing with the Thalmor in ways that doesn't actually hurt their holdings, but still pisses them off. Putting fire salts in their shorts, filling their scabbards with honey, smearing their armor with troll mating musk...
>> No. 171423
Bah, you know the next game is going to write the Dragonborn out in some lame fashion like all the rest and the Thalmor will still not get a kicking.

Its sort of annoying having all this power and not having anything to do with it, the only thing you run into is condescending Daedric Prince's.

It would be funny if there was a DLC set in the Summerset Isles.... and if you weren't a Thalmor or at least another kind of Elf that could pass as a Servant so you could subtly undermine the regime every town basically become a battlefield, every loyal soldier and supporter against you.

So all the Expansions are wrapped up and the Legendary Edition is supposed to come out in June. http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2013/04/25/skyrim-legendary-edition-launches-june-4th/

All DLC new difficulty level and no level caps.

Uh, I've already maxxed out all of my learnable skills, how would I be meant to get any more levels beyond that?

Honestly I'm glad I played the game before I got the DLC, stuff like the vampires interfere with what you've got going on in the main plot, if you wait until you've completed the main game story it just seems to be a case of 'further adventures await'

The latest patch enables the player to make a skill 'legendary'. What that does is reset the skill to its default value, allowing the player to level it up all over again, and getting back all perk points spent on that skill tree. Sadly, making the skill legendary offers no benefit besides removing the level cap, and knocking certain skills down to starting level late in the game necessitates having other high-level skills to switch to. Destruction specialist? Better work on your conjuration so you can summon atronachs to keep the enemy busy while you're back to darting around casting flames.

Sure, if I had the body for it. Maybe ditch the hand-cups though.

Oh my... going through it with all the skills again... maxxing them all out again...

Is there, achievements for any of this?

At the moment, the only thing you get in recognition of making a skill legendary is a little Imperial dragon insignia near the skill, with a counter to keep track of each additional time you make it legendary.

It makes me sad there's no more content coming out for Skyrim...

Bah, mods. I wave dismissively at them.
>> No. 173691
like the one that added water current effects and the HD textures or the Space Core. Mods made by the Bethesda Team and Valve respectively.

Telling people to download mods means nothing if they play it on a console.
