Cadaver, using taint magic has been 'fixed' in the patch, so you wont be able to do that anymore. So have fun now.

I am currently on a break from playing Oblivion, as a mage. I am playing Oblivion as a fighter.

HA HA, no it hasnt, not for me9e, because I AM IN IRAQ, and I DONT HAVE ACCESS TO THE PATCH!!!

HE HE!!!

So anyway, for when I DO have the patch, is there any other effects on those numbers?? Did they "fix" the "First Ayleid Key" as well, or do spells still stack??

Also, if you use 100% spell absorb, use the "taint" trick, will you absorb the spell?? It would be kind of a waste of time I think. I think you would pretty much just get your mana back, but just wondering...

Thanks Spyglass for the coolness and thinking...

I have not used the patch, cus its beta. From what I have read, stacking still works, but the taint part of buffing up your own stats has been fixed. I have not played with taint magic, mainly due to lack of need.
I do like the tips on using the smallest spell to get the job done, like the one second paralyze spell. After I got that spell I was no longer afraid of mountain lions, bears or ogres.
I stack two restore health spells to get one big result with less mana than one big spell would do.
Not sure on the absorb spell question. I have not used that spell. There are so many strong spells, sometimes the game is too easy and there is no reason to explore other options.

Yeah, I found an "exploit" to get access to paralyze at a really low level...

Basically, vampirism boosts illusion up 20 pts at stage four... so if you have skill of 30 in illusion, then when you are stage 4 vamp, you can access the paralyze ability... then you make a NEW paralyze spell that lasts 1 second, and THAT one only needs skill 25 to do... so you can either cure vampirism or leave it on, no biggy, but results are a level 1 char that can paralyze... Combine that with touch spells, and paralyze buys you about 2-3 seconds... you can kill a lot of things without getting hit....

Including Ogres, lol, so now we are back on topic...

I also tried a "fortify skill" spell to allow you to access spells of higher level... but it seems to treat those higher level spell access as a "perk" and fortifying your skills does not allow access to perks... So it doesnt work... DAMNIT!! I guess vampirism works, because it is a "disease" effect which is considered permanent...

My tactis are to wait until they do their power attack (or normal one, they're just as slow) and then when they're recovering get a nifty one or two in. Also you can just circle them slashing and hacking at them until they either get staggered or die. They're pretty slow, and you won't beat them purely on face to face combat, so best bet is either magic or dancing in-and-out combat (but not arrows, you'd probably run out before you kill one, and if there's two, you're fxcked).

Also, use fire enchantments. Lots of 'em.

P.S You can use arrows if you've got a high enough marksman skill to do some considerable damage, and because they're so slow you can just run around making their stomachs look like pincushions.

What the..? How can it be a thread for this? Just walk up to them and kill them. It's not hard. Unless you are playing on hardest difficulty which is bullcrap. Medium difficulty is the best.

How do you kill an orge? A big sword, that's how.

How hard can it possibly be?

Anything below medium on the difficulty meter is not worth playing... it's too easy!

You can also use a bow, an axe, a warhammer or your bare fists. Just like the song in Fallout 3; Anything goes cool.gif

I've got into a rut with low-level characters who want to kill the three ogres for the Jemane Brothers, of hopping up onto the big rock next to Weatherleah and improving their Marksman skill. The Ogres always come to the bottom of the rock and stomp around unable to reach the annoying character on top.

It may take a hundred arrows to get all three, but again, the low-level characters are collecting arrows so they can raise their Mercantile by selling them one at a time. The merchants don't care if they've been used a few times.

Oh, the horrific memories of when I sold 2000 arrows, one at a time, to Fjotreid in Bruma. By the time I was finished my brain was smooshed like a banana under an elephant. Who stepped on it.

What makes this little story funny is that a few years later when I wanted to RP Lothranīs inability as a merchant, I actually downed his Mercantile stat quite a bit, rendering all that work completely mute.

Being on a PC, I found TQP very quickly. It's high on my list of essential mods (just after my own).

Here is a 2 1/2 minute you tube vid of a young lady punching out three ogres in Oblivion.

Notes:
1. Although the young pugilist is most certainly not Buffy, she does use the same voice set as my elf. Therefore, it gives one a perfect feel for Buffy's voice in game. Especially her little comment at the end.
2. This is a fully daily ration of mouth punchin' for Liz!
