I forget if this works: Can you unrelenting force / ice form the Ebony Warrior off of a cliff and cheese it?

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

@8-Bit_Superman Well.they said that it's not for this gen it will be a next gen game so if it does come to a Nintendo console it will be the Switch's predecessor.

Not expecting a switch version for VI but I am really hoping this comes out next year. Bethesda is good for same year announcement/releases. (I just wanna play it) here is hoping the building aspect is expanded.

@SilverEdge92 What is there to talk about. They literally showed nothing but a name and heck even the name isn't complete. If you notice there's no subtitle like Skyrim or Oblivion or Daggerfall etc.

@8-Bit_Superman Probably just to shut up the people hounding them for it, even though Elder Scrolls 6 was inevitable anyway. As if they'll stop making games in their biggest series.

Surprised nobody's mentioned it already, Bethesda officially announced The Elder Scrolls VI at their presentation.

Now with only three skills, melee, magic and stealth! And zero attributes! Plus twice as many bugs as Skyrim.

Wait, you can melee in Skyrim? I thought the only combat build was Stealth Archer?

In all seriousness, why go with a mage or melee build when stealth archery is so powerful? Not that you have to chose if you want to be a mage, melee, or archery build. Just work on the skills you want to use, and you can max them all out (multiple times). Granted, trying to work on melee when you leveled an archer build quite a lot can be a pain.

@FaeKnight High elf mages are the only character class in TES. Something in your way? Burn it. Someone in your way? Burn them. A hundred people in your way? Burn them all at once. Did they scratch you while you were trying to burn them? Heal yourself back to max. Then burn them. They were the only one with the key to the only door to the 8 story tower you needed to get to the roof of? Just effing fly there.

And if you're looking to change things up, try electrocuting them just for fun!

Meanwhile my lizard man misses the arrow shot, alerts the enemy, and fumbles about trying to swing a sword and use magic at the same time.

It takes a long time and is boring, but you can grind 100 Stealth in the tutorial by grabbing a knife and backstabbing the torturer over and over again while waiting for his health to regen between stabbings. (why has that still not been fixed?!). At which point you'll almost never have to worry about being spotted unless it's a random wolf in the wilderness, your follower charges in recklessly, a civilian is looking in your direction, you get reckless, or are trying for a melee backstab.

EDIT: It was stupid and tedious, but I just killed the end boss of the first barrow you're suppose to delve into at the start of the game. I did so by crouch walking up to the dragon words wall thingie, crouch walking across the room while the boss was breaking his way out of the coffin, then plinking him with an arrow and waiting for him to stop searching. Yeah, sure he was leveled enough I could barely hurt him with a sneak attack due to me grinding Stealth in the tutorial (as well as one handed melee to an extent). Sure it took 30 or 40 arrows to defeat the boss. But I did in fact win, without ever actually being detected.

I played a stealthy archer on PC, and it is indeed a very powerful build. On Switch, I went with a battle mage with bound sword and destruction magic who is also extremely effective.

Not sure if it's a bug, but if you intend to be stealthy it seems using a bow is required. With maxed out stealth (100) and a bow in hand (or even magic) you can be three inches away from an enemy that's looking in your direction with a campfire at your back and they probably wont see you. If you have a melee weapon out though, it seems like enemies can see you with ease regardless of how high your stealth is.

EDIT: On the other hand, I like that if you pay close attention when picking locks, you can tell where the 'sweet spot' is just by the HD rumble effects.

I roll with a conjurartion archer who can sneak. It works surprisingly well.

Been playing this for the first time since it launched on the Xbox 360 (feels like a life time ago!!) and its been bringing back some great memories. I have to admit the game has not aged anywhere near as well as I thought it would. Interiors, especially caves, feel to cramped and the lighting feels off. Whether this was an intentional design choice or just the limitations of the hardware at the time I don't know. NPC animations and movement are rough and the whole sliding along thing is just as jarring as ever before. Character movement feels awkward. Despite all of this it can't be denied this game is still magical to play. You can forgive it all because exploring this well designed massive open world still feels exciting and looks beautiful.

I got this recently to fill the breath of the wild void in my life and I have to say im really underwhelmed... is it just me or is the combat terrible?

^ don't play TES games for the combat. Play it for the huge world and the near total freedom to do what you want. Combat is TES is always gummy/off.

Just saw footage and response to Fallout 76. How many years old is Skyrim again?

After years and years of wanting to play this, I finally started it today. Which was probably a big mistake because now I am probably going to get stuck into it and never get around to finishing Trials of Mana or any of the other games I have. I'm still very early, but already I have to say I like it better than Oblivion because the very first side quest/favor for someone I have found to be really cool, and I only found one I liked in my entire playthrough of Oblivion. And it has been long and in depth, so if all of the hundreds of them or however many are like this, this game truly will take me forever.

Before I get too far, what have people found to be the most fun way to play. In Oblivion, I was basically a warrior who just sworded my way through (or more frequently, ran away from) any problems. So this time I have decided to focus more on magic and bows and arrows, although unfortunately I can't use them both at the same time so I still find myself using a sword more than anything with the other hand doing magic. I know everyone says combat is the worst part of Bethesda games, and I did find the swordplay lacking which is why I wanted to switch it up this time; but I remember the end boss of Oblivion basically being immune to magic so it was good that I was a warrior otherwise I likely couldn't have beat him. Without spoilers, will I run into a similar problem here (you know, in about 5 years when I finally reach the final boss)?

@Xyphon22
so this will be your first time at skyrim? in that case you will have a blast at the game, well the best way is yor way anyway stealth and bow are considered the most satisfying way to play for a lot of player, i enjoyed magic as well because the small starting pool of magicka make the game much harder for me

i have just one tips for you, do manual save a lot , especially before starting a quest or enter a dungeon if you encounter any breaking bug(yes there are still a few and they start random ) you just need to loading from the nearest save and re do it and most of the time will be fixed, another tips if you go inside dungeon randomly and find special time (especially book) with special names do not pick them, sometime when you started in the future the relative quest the game will forgot you already have it in your inventory and will send you to the same dungeon to retrieve it and the quest will remain stuck forever in your quest log.
