@xantec I just didn't remember exactly where they showed up, so I wrote a vague answer. :P

Figure of speech.

comment How can I find my followers skills and stats?
Right. This is because the Attack/Defense provided by a piece of equipment scales with your skill.

@Kyte: That actually raises a seperate, and far more interesting question... Time to do some research.

@agent86 To provide an example of what I mean: Take a look at this question. Yes, the correct answer is 'wear gear with +Magicka Regen, chug a potion, and grab the perk in the Restoration tree. But the askers problem will be better solved by taking perks and using equipment to reduce the cost of his spells.

Sometimes, the best answer is "Don't." For example, someone might wander on to Cooking.SE and ask how they can best incorporate drain cleaner into their recipes. This would be a fantastically terrible idea. The appropriate solution is not to come up with a way for it to be less poisonous, but to tell the asker that they are not asking the right question. Often, people will ask a question about how to implement a bad solution to a good problem. We should not feel obligated to provide that bad solution when we can instead identify the actual problem and propose a good one.

I'd hardly call it controversial. After all, what information is there exactly that's not availiable from the Skills pane of the main menu? The only thing missing is your attack/defense stats, which are visible from the only place in the main menu where those are relevant: In the inventory when equipping/removing weapons and armor.

comment How much damage does after burn do?
They didn't make a mistake in their description. You're just reading it wrong. Enemies on fire take extra damage. Beyond the direct impact of the spell, they take extra damage over time.

The 'extra damage' Burning enemies take is not a bonus to further attacks against them while burning. It's a small damage over time effect.

I'll disagree. The money you'd invest in a capture device is better spent on a cheap monitor. The only good reason to even try this is major space/portability constraints.

See also: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/27653/… - an iMac runs into basically the same issues that you're going to have here.

comment Using a laptop as the monitor for a console
The problem with using a video capture device is that you'll end up with significant latency issues - especially on a slower computer, or with a lower end capture device. The delay can be really noticable, and this can be particularly problematic in games that have any sort of significant timing or reaction component.
