Let me say: I am not comfortable running this character, and that is having played the game before. Characters with MP above 350 suffer massive disadvantages. Breton Apprentices hold 350 MP, and High Elf Mages have 350 MP, and both hold a balanced disadvantage. Bretons will be weak to magic per their Birthsign, and High Elves are elementally weak per their Race. I’d recommend those before Breton Atronachs (400, no MP regen) or High Elf Apprentices (*groan* 400 MP, Severe weakness to elemental magic. I speak from experience. Third character I ran). If not for My Potion, I wouldn’t even be running this setup. I suggest something more… conservative. My first playthrough I did not fully level up Intelligence. I had 150-170 MP. I played a Warrior. He used it for healing and an occasional attack. Worked out fine. With my 400 MP High Elf I had a lot of fun “concept spells”. They’re like modern art: Ritzy, glamorous, and fun to look and theorize about, on the whole clunky and useless in application. A Breton Mage is a fine compromise. 300 MP will let you throw higher than normal spells and it will regenerate between casting on its own. You’ll have a good level of magic for everything. Only if you run a warrior like I did should you consider The Atronach. With the way I level and set up, the same Breton Mage could easily be a Breton Atronach. If your focus is magic, have it refill. It’s less of a hassle. If it’s just used to patch up and maybe draw an enemy, the large MP pool with the Atronach will help. Since healing came primarily between skirmishes for my Redguard you can do the same for your MP, just using items.

Also, I’ve grown very fond and accustomed to using magic to level up. I prefer it because it is deliberate. With my Redguard Warrior Athletics and Acrobatics were in my Major Skills. I’d be walking along and “BAM” level up. Fall off a hill, poof! New level. That would annoy me now since I control my leveling. It’s similar with Blade. I’ll have to switch to a secondary skill if I’m on the verge of leveling up completely before I’m ready. Easily done. A hassle none-the-less. *sigh* The disadvantages of running a strong magic type I suppose.

I have picked the major skills I have because they are relatively balanced. Also, before choosing Major Skills these were all at skill level 5. Blade and Block will serve in combat, and provide quick level ups in the latter. The same can be said for both Armor skills. Redundant, but it leaves options. Acrobatics can easily be replaced with Athletics, however, I find it a bit easier to level up Acrobatics than Athletics. Sneak will give you a way to move around. While visible it won’t level up at all. It will also stay still if there are no targets around to be considered sneaking around. Speechcraft will provide a way to level up in town with no quests involved, which is something I advise. With the Magic Specialty, the magic schools will be at a higher than normal level and level up more quickly. I’ll include a list of spells that I recommend making. Some for fun, some practical, often both.

While inclined to pick a male for higher starting Endurance, I did the math and can reach maximum Endurance with a female.

Character Advantages

High starting/ending max MP totals. (350/450), Quick Magic Growth

Character Disadvantages

Weakness to Elements (which MAY help MP restoration when coupled with Spell Absorption), No auto-regenerating Magicka

Onto the Leveling Journal…


 

Out of the Sewers: Level 1

Chosen Stats: Speed and Endurance

I always have trouble starting out. I know I’m going to level up Endurance, but what else? Should it coincide with my training or not? With an Endurance of only 35, I’m disinclined to put into Armorer just to ensure I have enough levels to do so. I’m also disinclined to dedicate Training to anything with too low a level. Since normally all Magic are Major Skills and I specialize in Combat, there isn’t too much of an issue.

After charting how many levels I need to max out some of my stats I will make my decision. For instance with Endurance, begin at 35, count by fives until you 100. Whatever you multiply by to reach 100 (13) in this case, is how many levels you’ll have to raise Endurance by a score of +5, meaning thirteen levels in which Endurance related skills must level up ten times. Even starting with three skills at Novice level that’s 22 potential levels. However, I’m talking about taking Armorer, which would give me the most in leveling out of the equation. My options are:

  • Don’t train. Not going to happen.
  • Combine levels. i.e. Using Block or Heavy Armor in conjunction with Armorer, while leveling up another stat that is in my Major skills, using skills that are in my Minor skill set. Five levels of Heavy Armor and Armorer each gets ten levels (+5 stat increase) and the same for five levels of Light Armor and Athletics (+5 stat increase for Speed). Heavy and Light Armors will add up to ten, getting the level up. Combining the others will add another +5 to the corresponding stats.
  • Say “screw it”. Heavy Armor and Block are both at level 25, giving me 14 levels of +5 Endurance. Just enough. Training Armorer will be my priority, and I’ll include the training amount at later levels if I so choose.

Getting started on a solid foot is, in my opinion, very important and possibly very difficult.

Also regarding leveling… you do not have to go to the skill screen to chart your progress. Every time you gain a skill level you will get a message stating “’X Skill’ level increased”. When you have gained enough Major Skill levels to grant you a level up you will see a similar, but more detailed message. “X Skill level increased. You should rest and meditate upon what you’ve learned.” This will be denoted by a symbol to the right of the compass (looks somewhat like a sword in a moon to me… I’ve yet to play this on a “good” TV.) This occurrence is important. Once you see this message all skill growth will begin on the next level. So if you’re leveling up Heavy Armor for the sake of Endurance and it’s leveled up nine times and you are told for whatever skill to rest and meditate, additional skill increases will be put on the next levels stat increase tally. Until you sleep you still hold your current level, able to get training sessions if you choose. Those increases count on the next level. If charted meticulously you can level up to the maximum while still at level one. However, you will do so with the inherent disadvantages of not leveling up: Lower vital stats, carry and the like. If you do end up using my method at all

SAVE AND SAVE OFTEN

in case your leveling becomes sealed. The advantage of using magic was I knew when I was using it. Often times the first thing I would do each level is use whatever magic I was leveling within two or three uses of leveling up, level up my other skills for the stats I desired, save near a bed, use the three hanging magics, check to make sure I got in training sessions this level (5xyour current level), and sleep. I could see right there if all was done correctly. If it was and I had +5 on all the stats I wished, I’d plug them in and begin again.

With this character I am running and swimming for (at least) five in Athletics, leveling for five in Heavy Armor, and using Light Armor and Armorer to fill in the gaps respectively. As I said in option three, there are just enough levels between Block and Heavy Armor to max out Endurance, so the rate Armorer increases will be less geared toward leveling and instead just focus on getting it done. I think I’ve said this, but I dislike “wasting” training on skills that are easy to level up. I also hate wasting them on skills that are too low. Yes, Mercantile is tedious, but even that will level up a few times at level five. Later on with all skills are basically at 15-25 for the ones rarely used and higher for the others I hold fewer qualms with spending the money on it.

Training: Armorer IIII/

I needed money for the house, Heavy and Light Armor sets, Alchemy ingredients, and training sessions. I didn’t need as much as I have, but as… detail oriented as I am about it, a few levels won’t hurt too badly at this point. First few levels (especially of the un-Specialized Minor Skills that sit at 5) won’t bug you (much) in the long run. Do what you have to do.

Level Summary

First off, I used the duplication trick to gain the money I needed. If this is not an option for you, let me know, and I will be able to give you alternatives. Inside two levels I had about 15,000 gold. That’ll hold me for awhile. I then bought as full sets of Heavy and Light armor as were available, including shields. Purchased my house in the Imperial City Commerce Office, and alchemy ingredients (from one of two vendors). I went to Three Brothers Trade Goods to get storage space for my house.

I then went to the waterfront district to my house. I duplicated more scrolls and several repair hammers.

Next I went to Sercen, an Ayelid ruin (fancy circle with diagonal “spokes”) northeast of the Imperial City near the Roxey Inn. I took the long way around, allowing my Athletics to level up a few more times while swimming. Upon arrival there was an Marauder Archer lying in wait outside. Marauders are Heavy armored more often than not, or possess larger weapons. Archers however, are speed based. This one had a bow (duh) and a dagger. Get close enough and archers will normally begin attacking you with their daggers after letting loose any arrow they have nocked. I let this archer level up my Heavy Armor skill. Since my low Speed, Athletics, and the fact that Heavy Armor still encumbers me, this prevented me from escaping on my own. I ran up to the Roxey Inn and had an Imperial Soldier stationed there kill off the Archer. I returned home, repaired my armor, which completed my Endurance for this level.

Since I had leveled up Athletics once before exiting the sewers and Light Armor also falls under speed, I used that to round out Lvl 1. By this point I had five Athletics levels, so all I needed were five Light Armor levels. I went to Vindasel, another Ayelid Ruin, directly across from the northeast sewer exit (the one you popped out of after the training) the Bandits there had quick weapons, leveling it up rapidly. I saved once I had four levels in Light Armor (9 total for the Speed stat) let me get the Level Seal, found a guard, and had him kill the bandit which maintained pursuit. By the way, looting foes for their armor and weapons will allow you to repair it, furthering your Armorer skill. After Light Armor I had all the levels required for Speed and Endurance. I made a quick stop by A Fighting Chance in the Market District, got my 5 levels of training in under Armorer, returned home, slept and leveled up.

My Athletics score was right at leveling up, and I used Sneak to move, but stayed in people’s eyesight so it didn’t raise at all.

Willpower 40

Agility 40

Speed 40 +5 (45)

Endurance 35 +5 (40)

Personality 40 +2 (40)

Luck 55 +0 (56)

In this, I put what the stat increase screen looked liked while leveling up. If the number is the same in and outside the parenthesis (as Personality is) that means I gained enough to add the specified number of points to the value, but chose not to. I add the +0 to luck just to show that it did not gain any more levels, but that I put a point into it anyway.

In the times, consider I stop to type things up as they happen.

30 Heavy Armor IIII/

15 Armorer

I’m still worried about “wasting” training sessions. As such, I’m choosing to make Armorer training the last thing I do each level. Here’s what I’ll do.

  • Repair weapons and armor (looted or otherwise) myself.
  • Supplement missing levels with Heavy Armor.
  • Switch to Light Armor, supplementing whatever I lack from Athletics.
  • Upon Level Seal, go and get five Armorer Training sessions.
  • Sleep, and raise level.

Gained no levels from initial repairs. Fast travel to Sercen for the numerous bandits within. Leveled up Heavy Armor and Light Armor quicker than you’d believe. Returned to A Fighting Chance for Training. Closed. Realized I’d run aground a bit of tedium. By leveling up Light and Heavy Armor, I left Athletics to be leveled up. Even at levels 10-15, that takes some time. What I SHOULD have done is used ten levels of Armorer (repairing my own armor and five Training levels) for ALL my endurance, and Light Armor for ALL my speed. But for now I’m swimming around.

And then in my wandering, random person died who bore a necklace with a leveled Luck enchantment that I wanted for myself so… start over?

I did.

As… Luck would have it, the enchantment is the same at all levels. So it’s always an 8 point enchantment. I could have had my necklace and kept my work. Bah.


 

Level 2 Redux

Completely forgot that I only leveled up speed because I already had a couple levels in Athletics. I’m inclined to level up the stats that are lower first, but I want to gain several levels quickly. As such, I’m going to use skills that level up swiftly.

Intelligence and Endurance

15 Alchemy IIII/ IIII/ (25 ending number per level)

Heavy Armor IIII/ IIII

Armorer IIII/

Since Armorer is not among my main Skills I am going to use ten levels of Heavy Armor to level up, and put at least five levels per level into Armorer. At the rate of increase Armorer should be at a decent level by the time Heavy Armor peaks. Also by that point I should have decidedly better grades of armor to work with, allowing me to use Armorer more effectively for leveling. With the duplication trick Alchemy, and thus Intelligence, will fly through levels.

Joy of Joys… Alchemy Skill Perk for Level 75 is revealing all four ingredient effects. If you didn’t find a way to do so before, you are now able to make The Best Potion Ever. Usage of the character will increase at this point since I will now have a steady way to refill MP.

FYI, I have a different name for The Best Potion Ever. It just seemed easier to call it that to make it mutable to anyone. I have a penchant for using something akin to me. In this case, I based it off the initials ZS (ZerohourSeraphim) and used the name Zenith Spice for my potions. There were three versions total in my first game. The first was just that. The second, a refined version at level 100 with primarily Expert level equipment, and the third (Zenith Spice III- Master Mix) was at level 100 with a full set of Master level equipment. As your level increases and as you use better equipment, the potion will increase in potency. I’ll only put the potions benefits up when I actually mix a new version of the potion.

For the sake of fun, I will go use HK (Hikari Kitsune) for this potion. It shall be called Heavenly Ki.

Zenith Spice (Heavenly Ki)

1st Mix- Expert Level, Full Novice Set

0.1 Encumbrance Point per Potion

Restore Health 4 per second for 17 sec (68 HP total)

Restore Magicka 8 per second for 31 sec (248 total)

Restore Fatigue 9 per second for 35 sec (315 total)

Feather 93 (up to four times) for 353 seconds (Feather stacks up to four times, time does not, allowing for 372 additional encumbrance points for slightly less than six minutes)

Characters’ Current Maximum Health 160

Characters’ Current Maximum Magicka 400

Characters’ Current Maximum Fatigue 175

Characters’ Current MaximumEncumbrance 150

I’ve bragged about this potion. Now look at the numbers. For your Health three potions will completely cure you. For magic, you’ll need two. Consider however… If you don’t choose a magic inclined race and/or birthsign your maximum MP total is probably 200. The more sustainable combos net you 250-350. For characters such as these your MP will regenerate that much faster. For this character, it is about the only way to readily refill your MP. This will allow you to go for broke on physical attacks since you fatigue will basically not drop for half a minute depending on your actions. The Feather attribute will allow you to care 1.5 your total carry. And this is just the first version. Worth note, all the potions I have made myself have been subject to the Duplication Glitch (detailed elsewhere).

Now… I’ve noticed what may be a discrepancy… perhaps I’m not paying attention, my math is bad, or the game is written oddly. Now, I’ve said that every two levels in a Skill gives it an “extra point” on the Level Up screen. In fact, two levels earns you +2, but you still need ten levels for a +5. Now Athletics… I checked, and it only leveled up once, but I got a +2. Is there a grace given for Athletics? I’ll see if I can answer that question.

You haven’t dived into the story yet, and already you can completely deduct any Heavy Armor you wear from your encumbrance. In celebration, either with this level or the next one, I went and slayed Umbra, which as a cold blood kill gained the attention of the Dark Brotherhood. It gives me Ebony class armor ten levels before it is readily available. It also makes the sword Umbra available for my use, at no additional encumbrance. Funny thing is, I’m about set for any fight, and the only thing weighing me down are about the 100 Kis I have, for a total of ten points. I’ve not improved my strength at all, so that leaves me with 140 points that I can carry items with. Don’t care who you ask. That’s impressive.

During this level I had to go Edgar’s Discount Spells in the Imperial City Market District and bought a Bound Dagger and Summon Scamp spells. They are Novice and Apprentice level spells respectively. They are cheap to cast, allowing even a limited MP count of the Atronach to use them repeatedly. I bought the Summon Scamp spell instead of just sticking with Bound Dagger because there is exta animation on the Dagger (cast the spell, pull it out, sheath it to cancel it, draw your actual weapon, repeat). Once I hit Level 25, Summon Scamp is quicker.

Now that Intelligence is maxed out, and none of my major skills are connected to that stat, I can freely use Alchemy, Conjuration, and Mysticism. Since Alchemy is already maxed out, this leaves me with Conjuration and Mysticism. It may take me a bit more time than normal since I don’t regenerate magic naturally, but a single potion all on its own refills it at a rate comperable to a moderate Willpower. This means that with mindless button pressing I’ll be able to max out Conjuration and thus summon the most vicious of demons if I so choose within this or the next level.

Level 14

Although still putting heavy emphasis on Armorer, I will not include it in the counts simply because it no longer adds to any stat. I will say, with my prior experience, I know I will get to 100 with the skill eventually. I am inclined to level it up normally and switch to something else, mainly for a change of pace, face, and locale, and shifting from the Imperial City to Chorrol.

Endurance being maxed out causes me to shift to yet another stat. I’ve chosen to continue with willpower since I have a spell handy, and according to my math I’ll have just enough levels to cover everything. I’m also focused on Speed. I’m not sure what you’ll choose first or if you’ll take a more relaxed stance than this. By working on Speed it gives you three skills: Light Armor, Acrobatics, and Athletics. At this point I’ve been seeing naught but the inside of dungeons for a little over eight hours and have been beat on mercilessly by all manner of beast and by every race on Cyrodill and from Oblivion. A girl is taking the chance to heal, get some fresh air, and let the bruises heal (and get a mess ass of beauty sleep). *ahem * Back to the point… Since Athletics lays under Speed this provides the freedom to run around and see the world. As a matter of fact, finding thirty locations is required to learn from the Master Athletics trainer. Some may rally against training Athletics. But I’ve found it to be T-E-D-I-O-U-S in the best of situations (as a Major Skill with a Combat Specialty with a race bonus tacked on), and since the parenthetical situation is completely reversed now, it will take longer. In fact, my first character did EVERYTHING from the main quest to every strip of downloadable content made for Oblivion, and STILL did not have Athletics maxed out. So in using it not primarily, but as a supplement to enchancing Speed will cut down on the time it takes in theory. I will still need ten levels of Major Skill advancement, and both Acrobatics and Light Armor cover that category. Chorrol has the Jump Spot I suppose, which works well. But to be a real stat miser (which I am) five levels of Athletics training and five total of Light Armor and Acrobatics works well enough. What to use to fill in the gaps? Block. Why? Since it is an endurance based skill and that is maxed out, you don’t have to worry about missing stat points through it anymore, but it can still be used to level you up. Also, personally, I like running. I like to go fast. Maxing out both Speed and Athletics will allow you to damn near fly. You’ll be able to outrun most if not all NPCs.

So… the plan:

-Go to Chorrol

-Train in Athletics at from the trainer there

-Use the Jump Spot in the Mages’ Guild Hall to level up acrobatics.

-get out and see the world using Athletics while protecting yourself with Light Armor

-While jumping, level up Alteration (or any Willpower based magic), and completing any Intelligence based magic (why waste the time?)

-Sleep, meditate, increase

-repeat

Switched from Acrobatics to Light Armor considering the Oghma Infinium. While I’ve played none of the actual game I should be able to make it through without a lot of jumping. Honestly, it’s something I rarely do. However, when I use it, it’s good to know I’ll get the most out of it. I won’t have access to the level 100 “timed jump off the waters’ surface” perk, but it’s something I rarely do. One level here and there won’t hurt anything, and as long as I keep track of automatic level ups given as rewards or from books, I can make it to the Oghma without hitting 100.

Side note (mainly for me to find later) leveling up the base skill for a Conjured item does increase the conjured items’ effectiveness. Used my Orc and used Bound Dagger, attack power 14 with Blade at 98. Used our Elf and used Bound Dagger, attack power 4 at level 25.

0.1 Encumbrance Point per Potion

Restore Health 5 per second for 19 sec (95 HP total)

Restore Magicka 9 per second for 35 sec (315 total)

Restore Fatigue 10 per second for 38 sec (380 total)

Feather 102 (up to four times) for 390 seconds (Feather stacks up to four times, time does not, allowing for 372 additional encumbrance points for about six to seven minutes)

Current Health 368

Current Magicka 450

Current Fatigue 260

Current Encumbrance 150

Mastering Alchemy helps a tad. At this point you’ll have to constantly slug back more potions if you’re under severe attack. You’ll have to be mindful of magic use. A single potion will still not restore you completely. Fatigue regenrates on its own.

Level 25: Half Done

Now I’m down to just four Stats out of eight maxed, with four to go. Considering the max level ends up around 50, I’m doing good. As the enchantments have maxed out (as I’ve said et nauseum), I can begin doing a few things. Let’s look at what Stats I’ve got left…

Strength: Covers all the melee weapons Skills. Two are only at level five, which means they can fly through levels with ease. The third is at 25, just like at the beginning of the game, and will level up quickly itself.

Agility: Covers Sneak and Security (lock picking), the thief skills. The former is a Major Skill. Say… there IS a Thieves’ Guild…

Personality: Mercantile is a bore, however, since I mastered Alchemy I’ve got a lot of potions bogging me down. I should get rid of them. Training is expensive after all. Speechcraft is in my Major Skills so some Personality points are a given. I should ensure that I’m not left with ONLY Personality based skills to level up.

Luck: One point per level, 21 points to go.

…what stats I’ve completed…

Intelligence: Conjuration and Alchemy are maxed, Mysticism is being leveled up.

Willpower: Destruction and Restoration need to be leveled up, but can be used freely now. Alteration is maxed. Considering this and Intelligence-based skills, I can freely use all magics since they are all minor skills.

Speed: Acrobatics will stay where it is. Athletics will be leveled, and Light Armor sits in my major skill set. As such, I’ve got some quick leveling should I choose to use it.

…what I have left to do…

Everything, actually. I’ve completed only four quests: The Tutorial Sewers, Buying a House in the Imperial City, Finding the Master Armorer Trainer, and the Deadric Prince Nocturnal’s quest.

…and how to use what I have to complete the rest of the game…

Fighter’s Guild: Lots of running around (Athletics) and melee combatants (Strength Skill, perhaps Marksman as well). Opportunities to squeeze people I think (Speechcraft). Loot of course (Mercantile).

Mages’ Guild: Lots of running around (Athletics) and closed quarter fighting (Strength skills… mages wear no armor). Some opportunities to squeeze people.

Thieves’ Guild: Have to be a cutpurse in the crowd. Running around, Sneaking, picking locks and pockets, being crafty, being convincing. Later on, some fighting opportunities.

Assassins’ Guild: Blade in the crowd. Running around, sneaking, being crafty, convincing, unseen, unheard. While the opportunities for outright fighting are rare, they are present, and they don’t frown on killing, so you don’t have to dedicate yourself to the mission upon accepting it like you do in the Thieves’ Guild.

Arena: Straight battles. Weapon skills and offensive spell use opportunities. Armor too.

Deadric Quests: Variety of skills and opportunities. Most are rather quick, but hold prerequisites and offerings needed.

Main quest: Variety of execution options.

Blade IIII/ IIII/

I’m at the same dilemma I was at towards the beginning of the game: What to do. Since I refrain from leveling Major Skills and magic, and excluding the skills I consider Mastered as is, I’m left with:

Blunt, Hand to Hand, Marksman, Mercantile, Security

Scrawling in 50 as my maximum level, that leaves me with 105 training sessions left, 100 if you exclude this level. Marksman is at the highest level of 25, Mercantile 20, Blunt and H2H at 15, and Security at 5 (although I am currently holding The Skeleton Key, which is an unbreakable lockpick and gives +40 to security). So… what to do…?

I’m going to break with my current scheme and use my older one, and that will allow to level up a Major Skill through training.

I’m not sure if I explained this, but the game does a damned fine job of keeping track of your progress. In fact, if one were to keep painstakingly accurate details of what one leveled, you could do ALL your skill and stat leveling at Level One.

At this point I’ve trained in Illusion and Blade. Blade being a Major Skill, I’ll level up next time I sleep. Any additional levels go onto Level 31 upgrades. So this is what I’m doing: I’m going to stay where I am and level Illusion up to 65. That will be ten levels. Then I will go to a Sneak Trainer and get five levels of training. I will then sleep. Because on Level 30 I leveled up Blade I’ll be able to improve Strength. When I wake up I can go and look at my Skill screen, and I’ll already be half done with Level 31. Because the work I did while at level 30 was in fact charted on level 31, I’ll already have my points for Personality. I can then go to the trainer immediately since my level increased, train five more times, and earn a level up, this time for Agility and Personality. I will leap frog like this (Strength and Personality, Agility and Personality) until I run out of levels for Illusion and quite possibly patience for Mercantile. But since Speechcraft is a Major skill I can use that to fill in the last few levels for Personality. If I’m really feeling edgy, I can wait until level… 75 or so before I add points into Personality again through Speechcraft. I wish I could record the screen or more accurately get my thoughts across. Anyhow, saving, and trying this out…

FYI, on the last screen of the character status, it marks a number of different counters. One of them being the Assaults you’ve committed. And Assault is defined as any singular damaging attack used on someone who isn’t fighting you, and who you have no reason to attack per a quest and not automatically designated as a combatant (going into a random dungeon and killing ever person in sight is legit since they’re lawless and apparently “had it coming” either way). In order to level up, I have basically been assaulting someone. It works because this person is “immortal” for now, away from prying eyes, and completely unable to return the attacks. As such, I have a nifty number to give you an idea on how much work needs to be done to level up a Combat skill. Previously I had one assault from when I attacked Umbra (the person). After that, we were counted as engaged in battle. From Blade Level 25 to 85 I had inflicted 7594 individual attacks that cause HP damage. Give or take since Umbra (the person) definitely doesn’t go down after one hit… so let’s say 7,550. I’ve still got 15 levels to go.

Now I know that an estimated 10,000 plus attacks (I’m just guessing really based upon the numbers I’ve got) to fully level this skill up to 100 is to be stretched out over a projected 50+ hours of gameplay with a variety of enemies over a variety of quests. With the current number and skill level it translates into about 600-800 blade strikes per level. However, this is skewed since it takes almost no effort at lower levels and a lot of effort at higher ones. I can tell you many targets take significantly less than 50 melee attacks on the middle difficulty setting. It takes a long while, a lot of work on a vulnerable target to level up the weapon skills. Now I have numerical proof for you. Set as a Major Skill as you wish.

This level I was meandering around and bought the ingredients to Zenith Spice/Heavenly Ki/Celestial Necters’ Evil Twin, a poison that has similar yet opposing effects. I don’t keep these as well stocked partly because I don’t use poisons that often, and because in spite of my best efforts I can’t mix up a poison that I like that weighs less than a full encumbrance point.

Zenith Spite/ Hell-a-Kinesis/Celestial Negation

1st Mix, Master Alchemy, Expert Set except for Novice Retort

1 Encumbrance Point per Poison

Damage Health 7 per second for 26 secs (182 HP total)

Damage Magicka 13 per second for 52 secs (676 total)

Silence for 24 seconds

Paralyze for 3 seconds (in opposition to Feather)

Now why do I make it like this? From my experience “Damage” affects whatever the attribute is directly. With the Arrow of Withering, it knocks down each Stat by two points with each shot that connects. I don’t think Damage Health and Magicka do that. Instead, they put a constant drain on these vital stats. However, with the set up like this, it does this damage over time.

Let’s use a mage as an example. They do not use armor, so damage will be prime. You poison your bow/blade. Attack connects.

  1. Mage falls over, paralyzed for three seconds, leaving them open for other attacks.
  2. Takes about two to three more seconds for them to right themselves, again levaing them open for a continued assault.
  3. They are Silenced for the next twenty seconds, so all magic is made useless. If they use conjured equipment instead of an actual weapon they are left solely with the Hand to Hand option. They will probably run instead. Once more, keeping up the pressure is wonderful at this time.
  4. Their Health is being drained, forcing them to use whatever Health potions they hold to restore it up to four or five potions, then they must deal with the drain.
  5. Their magic is being drained, forcing them to use whatever Magic potions they hold to restore it. If they have none or exhausted the limitation on Health potions, they must deal with the drain.
  6. After the twenty seconds of Silence ends, they will be inclined to use whatever MP they have left to heal themselves.
  7. With the constant drain on their MP reserves and but a few potions to restore it, this will leave them with little MP for offense geared spells. I imagine that any NPC mage you fight has enough Willpower to recharge MP quickly. You may luck out and be in a situation where the drain equals or overcomes regeneration, rendering them helpless.

See how effective this is? If they aren’t a mage, the damage is direct (unless they’re Argonian as they are immune to poison, or they have some resistance to poison that succeeds). If you’ve gotten accomplished with Marksman you can zoom in from further distance, knock down the target for added time, or stack paralysis at Master level. If you’ve Mastered Sneak, a successful stealth attack will cut through whatever armor someone might be wearing and give you a 6X damage bonus to the physical aspects of the attack. If the weapon you attack with has been enchanted with “Weakness to Poison” (100% just for example) the damage from the poison will be increased that much. I don’t think there’s a NPC with Willpower enough in the game to counteract an MP drain of 1352. As with Feather on TBPE, I’m not sure if the time will stack or not. It’s hard to tell on enemies.

Originally I had Burden as one of the effects, but it wasn’t at all useful on mages and rouges who stay well under their encumbrance maximums. I replaced that with Paralyze. Also I used to have damage fatigue, but that wasn’t as useful on mages. In both my spells and items I like to have the effects be well rounded. Paralyze works just as well on everyone and silence keeps anyone with even one spell from using it.

Just keep in mind… creatures such as Atronach, Deadra, and Spriggans seem to have rather annoying resistance to all this stuff. In fact… I’ve known a couple of instances where the affects I sought to inflict were returned to me. Just… keep an eye out.

Some enemies have earned my ire or I just know they’re going to be tough. Those bastards get two poisons. It’s funny when you do that to the boss and then you go after his one or two minions, and then the boss just keels over and dies without any more attacks from you.
