Doesn't the Sky version of Chillrend also paralyze people for 10 seconds per hit? I thought it was so overpowered just from that I never used it.

Wow, that's a really bad day to work at Windhelm's stables! I after the fight the first guard said: "My brother's out fighting dragons, and I get stuck out here in the sticks with this crazy old woman."

Two dragons. Two was enough! laugh.gif The Khajiit caravan was there, too, so it was quite an event. Marius took a position on the hillside and shot over the mosh pit when they landed.

I like enemies to hit hard, but I would never play a character that uses Destruction for their primary damage on anything higher than Adept. (The Zanimal also conjures and uses his enchanted greatsword.) I sometimes forget to turn it back down for Darnand, and his first completely ineffective dual-cast fireball always lets me know something is very wrong!

Sky Chillrend has a chance to paralyze for 2 seconds, which the way Marius fights works out to maybe once per dungeon. The version that Marius got (itís leveled) does 15 frost damage. Its base damage is 2 points higher than his Nightingale Blade. At this point heís finding better blades, but Chillrend really does lookÖ er, cool. Lol.

Renee, don't feel badly. I thought perhaps I saw a third dragon in the distance as well. But Grits is right - two is enough!

I quite dislike the 'chance' to do 'X' type of enchantments. Buffy's pretty frail and she needs to KNOW what she's gonna get. Lol.

I'm very happy and surprised with Buffy's wardrobe, seeing as she was a real clothes horse in OB. Her full mage robes, leathers, furs, scaled are all in her bag of holding gathering dust. She sleeps in an unhooded monks robe and 'taverns' in a vanilla blue dress. Her 'Venturewear is three colors of Triss armor and three hoods we just made (brown, green, white). The hoods are taken from the long mage/monk robes and include that scarf/shawl thing that drapes down the back like a mini cape. They beat the socks off the hood + cape we were using and provide just the right touch to Triss for inclement weather. smile.gif

Alise loves those mantles! She uses one all the time with her Resist Frost enchanted wolfskin cloak she picked up off of an unlucky bandit. It's great for the northern climes.

She's experimenting with several types of light armor ATM and right now is wearing Elven Rogue Armor by NanaBeats. It's no longer up on the Nexus forums, so I'm not sure what happened. But I like it much better than the standard Elven armor, which seems like too much metal for my character. Alise also likes that it's a dark color, rather than the golden color which always seemed too garish for her.

What Alise likes doing more is smithing up various heavy armors for her housecarls. Rayya has a set of Imperial Legion armors from this mod. Argis and Lydia are presently sporting heavy armors from here I have to say that the Akaviri Samurai armor Lydia is using looks awesome on her.

Oh, now I see the fluff/shadow that looks like a distant dragon! Oops. Sorry about that, folks! Iím just glad my snow fluffs donít look like dandelion seeds anymore. laugh.gif

Iím with you and Buffy, Acadian. I prefer the certainty of paralysis poison if the target really must drop. Marius is my problem child, though. Lol. What a great idea to make hooded shoulder-wraps for Buffy. A hood plus cloak does tend to overwhelm a petite figure. I get such a smile imagining Buffy relaxing fireside in her blue dress. happy.gif

haute, what armor does Alise have Argis wearing? The Argis fan club (me) wants to know. biggrin.gif

Marius has finally styled his pal Arissa the Wandering Rogue to his liking. We have tried just about everything on that woman. Marius is not interested in her that way (his words), but he does have to look at her a lot and he has standards. Anyway sheís wearing the ďThiefísĒ version of Triss armor Ė the dark gray but not jet black variety. What a wonderfully versatile outfit!

ATM Argis is wearing the Nordic Carved Armor - it looks simply awesome, especially with the Ornate Bearclaw Cloak from Winter Is Coming. I do try to give my companions serious armor, whether light or heavy. Earlier, he was trying out the Witchplate Armor from the Immersive Armor mod, it looked pretty cool on him, but I thought it looked better on Lydia.

Oh, I think the Nordic Carved Armor looks great on a big warrior fellow (like Argis). And, of course, I simply love the Triss outfit on rogues/mages. happy.gif

Grits, I just spent quite a bit of time reviewing that Arissa mod. Wow, it sounds fabulous! I'm really impressed with both Anduniel and Inigo (have both in Buffy's game). I was so impressed to see that Arrissa plays nicely with Convenient Horses and AFT - as I love both those support mods.

Edit: Somehow I had 'Aris' when I meant 'Argis' above.

I've always thought elven looks like something out of an alien movie from the 1960s. I appreciate it because it is pretty radical, but none of mine have ever chosen to wear a full elven suit.

If I ever continue Master Baytor's game (he's an Altmer) I think he'd be the first to wear elven, just because he would look so ridiculous / over-the-top in golden gear.

Yay for Nordic Carved, I love that armor on the big guys and gals. Stenvar wears it in Jensaís game, and Iíve always admired it on Frea.

Acadian, I have enjoyed Arissa quit a bit. A wonderful feature for Marius is that they can temporarily split up when they enter cities through a very natural dialog option. Itís a small thing but it really brings her to life. Heís actually run into her in other peopleís houses while heís been in there up to no good. hehe.gif

I think the golden Elven armor is beautiful but requires some effort to make it work with a character. I have a holy fire warrior idea that I think will go for the look. She is supposed to look shiny and fabulous and full of herself with fancy feathers and such, because she is all that. tongue.gif Also itís hard for me to overcome the Elven armorís association with the Thalmor patrols. My Altmer characters have chosen other armor to disassociate themselves from the Thalmor.

Iíve found the glass set to be equally challenging but just as fun once a character embraces the outlandish look. DovahKen dressed Erik the Slayer up in a full glass set. He looked ridiculous at first but then I got used to it and really enjoyed the way light looks in the metal and glass part of the armor. DovahKen was short so he got to see a lot of Erikís shoulders. Iím sure whatever DovahKen was wearing at the time looked equally outrageous.

My experiment with Elys using a two-handed sword and no armour (just spells) is working much better now. She got the Axe of Fiery Souls, and put the enchantment onto her sword. The fire part is a fixed 10 points regardless of skill or soul gem, and the variables are the duration and number of charges. Since she's gathering souls rather rapidly, the number of charges doesn't matter much, and a low duration is equally insignificant for a weapon she uses all the time, as long as its charge lasts for the whole battle.

The small boost from the fire damage seems to make a lot of difference, but that may be because it stacks on subsequent swings (extra damage to targets already on fire).

She's wearing horns in the circlet slot, hooves as boots, and has piercings in the body slot (plus her tail). It doesn't seem right to enchant any part of her person, but the jewels may get something later.

I love the Elven armor in Skyrim. It was one of my favs in Oblivion, and they fixed those silly boots in the Skyrimized version! laugh.gif I agree that it isn't for everyone. It is more for the fancy-looking character, not the rough and tumble types. At first I associated with the Thalmor too. But once I finally admitted to myself that elves are indeed superior to all other forms of life, I did not mind anymore. wink.gif


I love the Nordic Carved. It was perfect for Hrafngoelir.

The Nordic Carved Helm is about the only one my characters would want to wear. What's the point of spending ages in chargen making 'em look good, just to hide it all inside a can?

Before we got any mods, one of my fave outfits on Buffy was the Imperial light armor with Imperial bracers and hide boots - just the perfect blend of flattering and practical.

Unfortunately, the first time she wore it into a camp of Stormcloaks, one of the Nord women there pulled her aside and warned her that wearing Imperial stuff around the Stormcloaks could get her killed. kvright.gif

Yup, agree with that, Paladin.

Alise had second thoughts about having Rayya wear Imperial, being so close to Falkreath (still Stormcloak territory). So she gave Rayya a extra set of Witchplate armor, which Rayya likes very much.

I like the tunic part of the Imperial Studded Armor, with the mail over the leather. But I never liked the man-skirts on all the Imperial armors. They look wrong for Skyrim's climate. I think the Imperials would be freezing their little legionaries off. The Romans stationed in places like Britain and Germany wore trousers for a reason...

Whoa really? I had no idea they actually say this. Haven't gotten very far with Civil War quest, nor have I had anybody wear Imperial and / or Stormcloak gear in an opposing camp of soldiers

I can remember early in my Oblivion days (2008 or 2009) one of my first characters wore some Necromancer robes into the Bruma Mage's Guild, for no reason at all. She just wore it. She goes to speak to the lady who leads that particular chapter, and this lady actually reprimanded her "Don't you dare come wearing that in here!" ... something like this. It only happened just that once. smile.gif

Yup. During Buffy's first playthrough. She quite liked that Imp light tunic armor. She's never gotten involved in the civil war. Li'l Miss Neutrality wandered into the Stormcloak camp near the road between Helgen and Ivarstead. It was one of the Stormcloak woman that told her something like "You've got a lot of nerve walking in here wearing Imperal armor!" The woman then sat down and didn't pursue it, happily. Still, it was enough to put Buffy off the Imp armor anyway. She likes and dislikes both sides about the same I figure. The Stormies hate elves and the Imps tried to behead her. The only one who has intervened to save her is. . . Alduin! laugh.gif

Iíve spent some time with Jensa lately. She wore her Stormcloak uniform throughout the war, but now that itís over and sheís reached level 50 I think itís safe to say she has settled on her look. Funnily enough itís pretty much the same look she started off with.

Cold Weather Furs and Hood

Warm Weather Ranger Kit

In town Jensa favors blue dresses and white furs. Her jewelry is always her wedding ring and her Amulet of Talos, plus she has a circlet that looks pretty and fortifies Marksman. When sheís conducting business on behalf of High King Ulfric throughout the Holds she wears a copy of his outfit thanks to a mod. At court at the Palace of Kings she wears the different Fine Clothes and Fine Boots that go with them.

Her favored blade is still the Skyforged greatsword that Eorlund gave her, but she also carries the Stormblade which is enchanted with shock damage. She uses a dragonbone bow and dragonbone arrows. After all she does spend a lot of time shooting at dragons. biggrin.gif

I think it is funny that Ulfric's outfit does not look at all like Ulfric's Outfit! That was one I tried on when experimenting with Lucia's clothes. I still love how it looks though.

Jensa's outfits are very functional and down to nirn, like their wearer. The chest area of the warm weather one certainly makes the temperature rise! laugh.gif
