Your enchantment bonuses depend heavily on your enchanting skill. You need to level enchanting before you can create anything with a worthwhile bonus. In order to do this: Acquire (buy, steal, loot) lots of low-level soul gems. When they are empty, go out into the wilderness or raid a dungeon with non-human enemies to fill them with some souls (use a soul ...

The level of your enchanting skill counts! Before you make significant progress in your enchanting skill, you'll be unlikely to improve on found objects. Enchanting Potions can boost this skill, as can wearing exactly 4 items of Ahzidal's armor. But until you are sporting a final number near 80, you will likely be unimpressed. Sorry, them's the facts. ...

The problem with this in Skyrim is the physics engine itself, sometimes the items you place either do one of two things: De-spawn due to placement error whilst re-loading and implementing the game code (basically there's an original copy or code for each room and area, then there's a new copy based on what you alterd in the world, and sometimes the game ...

Sounds like you want the "No NPC Greetings" mod, also available on the Steam Workshop. It's pretty easy to find such mods by just Googling, or browsing Nexus Mods, in case you might want more in the future.

When I play skyrim it doesn't freeze for me, it does lag when I'm further into the story becouse of how big the game is. Got a few suggestions make sure that the PS3 has at least 2G of free space. Turn off all auto saves in game option but should know that you will have to make own manul saves. Go into game data utility and delete all corrupted files, they ...

Doesn't matter, that is the cool thing about skyrim it doesn't matter which character you use at all. Just choose what u feel comftable with I mean they all have different abilities. U can use wood elf heavy armour warrior if you wanted to but if ur dead set on it just use Orc. Beserk ability is useful but my opinion is that orcs are just plain ugly.

In general, most factions will not be hostile towards their own members. Adding yourself to the offending faction is often a solution to this kind of problem (e.g. Missing In Action, I've personally experienced that bug). The Companions have a faction ID of 00048362, so running this command should stop them attacking: player.addtofaction 48362 0 This ...

I had a similar problem before. It was beacuse i had killed someone part/related to the companions. or it could be a mod bug. To fix i would say to either create a new save, check your mods for bugs [if you have any] or to completly avoid the companions

It's because you can't remove spells or powers that your character starts the game with via the console. However, people have made mods that allow you to remove them: Power Eraser (for Highborn) No Starting Spells (for Flames and Healing)

The main determinant of a companion's power level is their actual level. Before patch 1.6, followers would get a level when they first spawned, based on the Dragonborn's level, and then stay there. This meant that the later you met a follower, the stronger they were. This was fixed, and they now level with the Dragonborn, up to a cap. This cap varies ...

From what I remember companions' stats are based on your level when you acquire them. That's why Lydia is often considered the weakest; because she is usually acquired very early game when you are low level. I never had that problem with her, because I wait until I am much higher level before getting her and then she can tank alongside me against almost any ...

This happens in Elder Scrolls and Fallout games if you're not actively trying to avoid it. Try not to get into any crevices too much, and definitely don't jump while doing so. On PC, you can use the console to extricate yourself. Since you're on PS3, the only way to get out of it is to fast travel. Since you're indoors you can't fast travel, so you have to ...

Did you use a different account, or even accidentaly delete all your save files? If the following is false, try to see if you can retirve the saves back, though you didn't deleted them. As mentioned here: It may be possible but not easy. It depends on how much data was actually erased and how much has been written since then. Restoring deleted files ...

The consequences of following either Hadvar or Ralof at the beginning of the game reflects on who you kill when escaping: If you follow Ralof, you kill Hadvar with the Imperial lady as they come through the gate together. If you follow Hadvar, you join up with him instead and kill the Stormcloaks (which is Ralof and his dead friend) trying to get through ...

You can find the answer here Pillar Puzzle 1 After several more rooms and traps, there will be a door on the second floor near a broken coffin.

Does sound still play from other programs? Check if eg. Youtube works - if not, it's that your computer processor got "into delay" and somehow left the sound behind, or stopped the sound because it was too loud ( = are you using headphones?). If other sound sources work well, it's a problem of Skyrim - a bug/glitch or something. You could try reinstalling ...

I liked to use an Argonian warrior, because when fighting multiple enemies at close range it is almost impossible to block. That's when the Histskin ability comes in handy, allowing you to tank and regen through enemy hits with; once you've used the ability, however, keep in mind that it will take 24 hours to be able to use it again.

Strangely enough they take fall damage. I'm an illusion/restoration master of mind but I was able to lure a bunch up onto the bridge and knock them off to kill them easily.

Marriage is a tricky, and rather touchy feature of Skyrim to start.You have to be careful with the wedding ceremony. The priest will tell you the ceremony takes place the next day between dawn and dusk, which is 8 AM - 8 PM. If you arrange a marriage after 8 PM and before 8 AM the next morning, you must enter the temple between 8 AM and 8 PM. If you're ...

Are you using Xbox or PC? As the Wiki quotes, "Players may experience problems when trying to have Illia equip new items, due to AI requiring armor of higher rating. Using the console on the PC version, she can be forced to wear armor for the duration of her time as a follower." Just as it also mentions that, "The only way to make Illia change her ...

I would like to know which weapon it is so I don't change it or sell it or use it please. It is generally not possible to do this. Skyrim flags important items as "quest items." These items cannot be dropped, sold, or otherwise removed from your inventory by conventional means (modding and console hacks are an entirely different story). Generally ...

For all your Skryim questions, first check The Elder Scrolls Wiki. If you don't, most of your answers are basically just going to be links to the wiki and block quotes, like this one. The wiki has a page on Alftand. The first sentence says this: Alftand is an ancient Dwemer ruin located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The quests "Elder Knowledge" and ...

As version 1.3+ Skyrim has a bug where harvestable flora doesn't respawn correctly. Sleeping Tree Sap should indeed respawn when the cell resets (every 2 days), but this only occurs when the two days pass in the same game session. Reloading a save file triggers the bug; the flora will not respawn until the next cell reset after a file is loaded. Players ...

The house in Raven's Rock would be excellent for your Craftsman character. It has a Forge, Smelter, Tanning Rack, Workbench and Grindstone in one room, and in two nearby rooms has an Enchanting Table and an Alchemy Lab. There is also lots of storage containers. It would be slightly less useful for your Merchant character, though fast travel to the giant ...

You won't get the bonus for wearing a matching set, but you will get the bonus for wearing a full light/heavy armor set, if it meets that requisite.

The Arcaneum Library is not a "Safe Location", so storing things in the bookshelves here is not safe. If the area respawns, you'll lose any items you left there. On top of that, there's a note on the Containers page about bookshelves in particular: Bookshelves can often glitch, causing you to lose any books that are stored on the shelf you are using. ...

The Imperial bonus isn't really worth it: 100% chance of 2-10 extra gold in all chests that normally contain gold, as well as to the corpses of various gold-dropping enemies, such as bandits, dragons, draugr, Falmer, Forsworn, giants, and rieklings Honestly, 2-10 gold per loot is pretty low, especially in the mid-to-late game where weapons and armor ...

Since you've completed the house requirements, here are the other thing you need to do: You need to complete Innocence Lost by going into the Arentino Residence and talk to Aventus. After it's complete, later go back and talk to the lady Constance. I know you're trying to adopt from the orphanage. If you still can't adopt from the orphanage, you can ...

I would say it is the outfit issue. Presumable they are set as normal actors and assigned as Outfit=none.

You'll get your weapon back if you haven't waited for an in-game week. If you waited that long, then cells and interiors will reset and if that happens, you won't be able to get your weapon. if you're on PC, you could just simply use cheats to get it back. Also try to find a way in the ruins to get to the place where you last had that weapon.

Proventus should be essential. Maybe try teleporting him to you- unless you are using a mod that makes him unessential, he should be alive. Or just try waiting a few hours in dragons reach- he might yet turn up.

If you want your family to move, you will need to accommodate them in the new abode - A bed for your partner, (wife/husband) and a bed for each child.
