Does anyone here have an extra couple of Skinchanger boots they want to get rid of?



I don't, just maces. verysad.gif


On another note, though = Up to 575,000 for the house! WOO HOO !!!!

Lol, we've got a ton of helmets, shoulders, swords, chests, and staves. All Mira is missing is footwear

Khajiit - just checked our spare parts from the Festival and good news! A Skinchanger Boots book is in the mail. smile.gif

Once I'm able to get on, I'd be happy to send a Boots motif your way, Cheshire. Assuming you haven't received one yet. Whoops, never mind, too slow at posting. :V

@Acadian
I think we might be thinking of two different sets with the name "Hist" in them. Can't blame you. I messed up in my previous post, too. I meant to say I'm using Song of Lamae, not Vampire's Kiss, lol Also, not Lamia's Song. A lot of these sets have names that are way too similar and it's annoying.

I'm running the crafted Hist Bark set, which gives you a 20% chance to completely dodge an attack while blocking, as well as a nice health, health regen and physical resistance boost. I can see why tanks adore it. Good thing I started using it before I became aware of its status.

I feel you on the "death by stun" thing, though. It was especially annoying while fighting the minotaur world boss in the Gold Coast. That it has a heal as well as protection is pretty neat.

I agree with you on too many sets with names way too similar - that Hist Bark/Hist Sap; Night Mother's Gaze/Night Mother's Embrace; etc.


I'm most def taking notes on your Tanking armor tips here! I use Song of Lamae too, my character is a bit squishy and it really helps act as a buffer for her against damage. She is supposed to be DPS, but gets knocked out of action too easily by world bosses even when she is grouped well. (unless the healer is above average). I'm planning to respec her skills and attributes when she has completed her researching; and trying to plan it out before the event so I only have to do it once (hopefully). Most def wanting her to be a bit tougher.

So how do you craft a set? mALX, crafted items from a set for Feng, so does this take a special recipe or something?

You have to have "learned" a certain number of traits to do the sets; then find that set's crafting station out in the wilderness to craft whichever set you want.

(Example: Song of Lamae requires 5 traits learned; and has three crafting locations (one in each Alliance territory)

You learn the traits by researching them at any crafting stations. I sank skill points into speeding up my researching times with my crafting characters because it takes excruciatingly long if you don't. (so once they have researched their last trait and it is "learned," I will reset their skills and get back those skill points I spent on speeding up their researching).

Oh ok gotcha. Mira has learned the first rank of the blacksmithing perk that speeds up researching. We are trying to save everything we can get a trait from but it's still slow going.

Once we get the Guild Bank up, anyone that needs something to research can just ask and another player can craft it and stick it in the bank for them to pull out and use.

Misa is researching Light Armor and Nirnhoned right now, then she will be done.

Haa-Rei hit rank 50 this evening, and morphed the last of his combat skills. We've made really good progress thanks to the festival exp boost. Usually we'd be hitting 50 as we were finishing up the last quests in The Rift, but Haa-Rei is still only about 2/3 of the way through Eastmarch!

We've got a few skill points stocked up and waiting to be used for crafting, and our inventory is full of items with traits waiting to be researched.


Cirinwe has made herself comfortable at a crafting station on Khenarthi's Roost, researching traits with whatever items Haa-Rei puts in the bank. By the time she actually starts adventuring, she should be well prepared.

I really enjoyed the questline for the Ebonheart Pact. I mean, I do love the Queen and that Khajiit in the Aldmeri questline; and once Indoril dies there is really no close friendship to be found until the last of Ebonheart - but I still think it was so well done!

At any time before you complete the quest, you can drop it and go start it over - redo any mistakes you have made. Once you complete it though = too late.

No, its questline is over. I always explore everywhere before doing any quests - get all the skyshards and learn where all the good loot spawns in case I ever return for some reason. Before One Tamriel it was good to go back to the Starter areas like Bleakrock to farm mats, but since One Tamriel = don't have to any more, may as well farm in Coldharbour, lol.

The people that owned everything there are gone forever; and so are the guards that would catch and arrest you; but there is still plenty around to take - you just have to make it back to Stonefalls to find a fence for it all.

Also, there is tons of food and weapons laying around - steal them; cook the food and deconstruct the weapons - boost your ledgerdomain/provisioning/and all three equipment crafting disciplines really quickly (because deconstructing stolen armor and weapons gives a very high XP)

- Don't forget to drink some of Breda's Mead before going down there to boost your XP for the above activities, and you will really raise your skills up in just a few trips.

Congrats to Champion Hai-Rei! happy.gif

Jerric has been sharing Festival bonus time with crafters Elke and Lleduri so that they can keep up with him. It's slow going and they're both one bracket behind, but tomorrow they get to move to Elden Root. The house fund took another hit when Jerric bought the sorrel horse for newcomer Sola al-Las'ah. I have a feeling that once the bank hits 43k again, someone is going to want the black horse. This is why Darnand holds Jerric's money. Might need to bring him to the PC team just to govern the Nord's spending.

We took your advice and Mira went back to Bleakrock. It was annoying fighting The Daggers every few feet but she did a little looting, got some items to fence and weapons to break down.



Also, somehow managed to go into the Deshaan quests out of order so Mira had already defeated Vox before taking out the Llodoos Plague threat.

Did you drink the koolaid er, I mean drink Breda's Mead before going? And the enemies aren't inside the houses, so you can loot at your leisure in them (and the doors were left unlocked, so don't have to pick locks or anything).

By the way, does anyone know why that lady and her husband and dog didn't evacuate the island? I thought they were supposed to. (?)

I'm sitting at around 1,500,000 total. Keep in mind this is the combined total of each character's personal gold. I'll be broke when housing's released with only my Motif Fund and the Crafting Monkey's money (used for materials and motifs) left.

Wow Monkey, you should be able to afford at least a couple of houses!


Feng seems to be having a hard time getting into his Alliance quests. Mira is enjoying hers but Feng is a bit rudderless right now. Guys, this one is afraid Feng is going to fall into a life of crime! ohmy.gif
Just the other day he was talking about maybe joining the TG or the DB.

Holy Cow !!! You'll be able to get one of those awesome mansions!!!!

Oh, well for me ... I make my characters deposit all their pocket money into the bank before logging off at the end of the play session. The next day before leaving the bank they withdraw a set amount for expenses (kind of like a "bank till," "drawer," or "draw" - whatever it is called in your neck of the woods, lol).

At the end of the day I have a good indication of how much net profit they each made that day; and can keep good track of how much income was from Guild Store sales, how much from Writs or quests - which character earned what.

That way I'm always on top of my net worth to the penny at any given moment, lol. Since I've been shooting for this house, I've actually been keeping a running tally of it, with pictures of the houses I want up on my wallpaper, laugh.gif

You got the Adventure Pack, didn't you? I can't remember if you ended up getting it or not. Is Feng in a different Alliance than Mira? (and if so, which?)

Oh, since they made the One Tamriel changes, you can make your own path in the world = not worry about following any Alliance quests if you don't want to.

And once I have played Misa through every quest in all the Alliances of the game, I doubt I'll want to go through all that with any other character, will probably just want to do the quests that give skill points or great reward with the others.

So Misa was THE character to play the game with, but when it comes down to it, my other characters will probably be the ones to roleplay in the game with.

Bubba (the one that is now my crafter) - he started off being a thief; but that was a year before the DB & TG DLC came out.

No we never got the Adventurer pack, so Feng is in the AD. It's not that the AD quests are bad, far from it. Feng just isn't as focused as Mira was (although Mira maybe more focused because of the Covenant being so aggressive in the early part of the EP quest line).

Yes, the EP most def has a powerful Alliance questline in Stonefalls. It isn't as touching as AD's, but for me - I loved it. The whole Strife Brothers was a blast to do, so interesting and someone put a lot of thought into it!

Also really liked the Starved Plain quests were interesting too. They weren't riotously fun like Daggerfall and the Skyrim Nord quests, but satisfyingly fun because they were so well done.

I used up my last character slot for ANOTHER temporary mule. At least, I hope it's temporary. Maybe until my previous "temporary" mule finally gains 40 more inventory slots through horse training to take everything the other is currently holding.

I now have space in my bank and all is well.

Anyways, I really liked the EP questline, but I sort of feel like it peaked at Shadowfen. After that I felt there were some issues with the writing. (Particularly the Fort Amol quest, but explaining further involves spoilers)

AD is my fave, though it almost suffers from the same problem as EP. I wish the Khajiit sisters showed up earlier and more frequently in the questline than their Elden Grove cameo in Greenshade.

Oh, I most def agree on the issues after Shadowfen! I had problems with the ending questline resetting itself in EP - had already saved the big situation and found a quest I hadn't done that was out of order. Doing that quest reset all the in game dialogue to as if the end never happened!

There should have been some kind of built in protection that you couldn't do the quest out of order or that segment of it disappears or updates if not done timely.

Another was the weapon fragments that you are supposed to bring together - it is like a ball was dropped in the middle of that quest and it unravels suddenly with no clue as to how to complete it and all quest markers just drop suddenly - no quest to drop and retake in inventory, so it is an achievement I won't be able to get.

Also, the Nord party town quest glitched and couldn't be finished.

I reported all the issues, but I most def think there was not just a writing issue there; but a lack of follow through needed when creating questlines to protect the outcome from the chaos of players doing things out of order.

Same thing happened in Skyrim when it first came out with that Bard's College questline = it let you find the musical instruments in dungeons, but that didn't start the questline. The items were locked in your inventory because they were quest items, but had no quest. Then when the quest started, it didn't update that you had the items, and the NPC questgivers didn't recognize that you had them. You either couldn't find them a second time or having two in your inventory blocked them both from being seen. The quest couldn't be completed. It was really poor follow through on what should have been an interesting quest.

I really think it is a fault of the new script formats. Remember how simple the "If...Then; Else" of the C++ morph in Oblivion was to work with and how relatively fool proof it could be in tying up loose ends? I miss the (easy to follow) logic of it !!!!

Maybe you could use the UESP to find out where the quest markers are? This one had to do that with the plague quests in Deshaan to get the achievement.

Oh, that's not encouraging. Buffy's nearly done in Eastmarch and still waiting for the EP questline to spark any desire to help/care. I mean it is fun questing but she's seen nothing to make her care about the EP. We absolutely loved the AD questline though and Buffy became fully and emotionally invested in it.
hazmick
I enjoyed the EP stuff the first time around, and Deshaan and Shadowfen are good every time we've been through them, but I agree that the Skyrim parts aren't quite as good. I blame King Jorunn.

One major problem for Haa-Rei and I is that we know the Pact won't last, and Argonians will be slaves again in a few hundred years. sad.gif

When all the dust settles, I probably will if it can be done. I do want that achievement for Misa. She worked too hard on the beginning of that questline to have it just implode halfway through.

Jerric was very engaged by the EP questline. He still checks in with his buddies when he wanders through their areas. He felt the tough choices and was personally moved by some of the things he did. One particular loss was devastating. I suspect that the things which drew Jerric the Gold Coast Nord to the cause probably are not as compelling to some others, though, especially from other cultures. For example I can't see Lildereth going out of her way for Jorunn the Skald King or High King Emeric. She grew up with very different songs and stories.

Elden Root residents, keep an eye out for a chunky blonde in flip-flops and a miniskirt, that's your new neighbor Elke. So far she likes Grahtwood a lot. She realizes that she will only get to live there while she is learning to work hide and steel, so she's making the most of it. Specifically she is making a lot of stops at the Outside Inn. tongue.gif

Well, you kind of have to try each Alliance out and then choose the one that suits you best if you want the full picture (which is what I wanted).

But the truth is, I did enjoy being the Hand of King Jorunn; and enjoyed being the Eyes of Queen Ayrenn both. (King Emeric doesn't seem to give you a title, or I missed/forgot it somehow) - that Daggerfall questline started off a lot of fun and then seemed to lose momentum toward the end, there never seemed to develop a close relationship with Emeric.

I think all three questlines suffered some lag at the end; but all three started off awesome. I think they were all good though, and mostly really well done. What problems I had with the end of the EP line may have been caused by that one quest resetting the end; maybe that caused the weapon fragment quest to glitch too - because they were connected.

I think if I had stayed on the fragmented weapon and not tried to pick up that extra quest, I may have been able to finish the achievement for the weapon. (not to say that it should have been left unprotected against that happening though).

But I do completely get why Buffy is more attuned to the Aldmeri questline - most def love Queen Ayrenn!

On King Jorunn - I liked him much better than Emeric. He seemed much more approachable and less full of himself; much more grateful for your aid. And I loved that you were a part of a unit helping him, it wasn't just you being uber.
