Btw a little hint for one battle in the Arena. I'll put it in SST in case you dont want to know
LOL! Thanks -- your tip about the Argonians is actually exactly what I ended up doing in that section
By "pWned the shit out of the Arena", I meant to say that the only significant achievement my char has actually made so far (think I'm all of lvl5 by now) is to become Grand Champion.
Really cracks me up to think of this dude being released from prison to accomplish the all important saving of the world, and instead he just kinda shrugs and heads off to bust some heads and get paid. Now all I have to do is get my alchemy skill high enough to make some bubble-gum, and I'm all set!
I love a ring i have too though. It gives me +9 blade and block i believe. Worth something like 6k.
I'm trying to get my hand-to-hand skills up right now, as I grabbed a crazy set of armbands out of a chest SST: just outside the arena. There are two bedrolls there, and I'm pretty sure the armbands belong to an Argonian who sleeps on one (no -- not the one who knocks you the fuck down, as I had already stolen them by the time I reached that fight, and that dude was still out of control). Anyway, either pick the chest open, or steal the key from the Argonian's pocket, 'cause the bands are particularly sweet: worth about 6K, and fortify hand-to-hand +20 on self - constant effect
I'm thinking with a bit of crafty levelling, I might be able to build a character who doesn't use anything but those...
It may be that one day a young man will adore a Pinata.
I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me.
