Questing Guide
I just published what I started working on last night, which I hope to be a grand guide helping people through this mammoth of a game.

I'm interested in open feedback, what is wanted/needed next, so on.

Check it out in the guides section or the link will be pasted below.

As a tracking log, I'm also going to post updates. Since starting about this time last night I've come about halfway through the Hlaalu Faction, and I'm considering pushing through the main quest in order to give the walkthrough more meat.

I expect to finish the gameplay for Hlaalu tonight, and finish the writing tomorrow. I'm still getting a system down to hasten the process of screenshot editing and format, so comments in regards to that would also be helpful.

Here's the guide,

Update 1: 23 January 2012 - House Hlaalu Faction is complete. Next goal is the Main Quest, which should validate the guide further. Will try to finish the first half of the main quest over today and tomorrow, writing the first couple sections (maybe up to Nerevarine). Then finishing the Support and Endgame chapters early next week.

UESP has them all already. Kinda useless. But I do have to admit that those pictures are useful, that's something UESP is missing.

Very true, but the same could be said in regards to gamefaqs, where you're sure to find 5 or 6 guides. I personally like the idea of hitting shift+tab and having a location map for the next area waiting there, and I'm sure there's those whom would rather click a section than open up 6 or 7 tabs in the wiki format.

Having finished a good 6X% of the main quest just tonight. I can say that I feel like this project will take a few weeks and will produce a crisp product with my own unique touch, which could be helpful, especially to newer players not familiar with the area.

Thanks for checking it out though. I hope you'll keep up on it, and tell me how you feel when I put out a finished product.

Update 2: 26 January 2013 - I've finished the Main Quest guide! I've noticed a large increase in viewers for the guide. So I hope it's all turned out well so far, feel free to rate and comment. If there's no suggestions for what I do next, I'm going to start House Redoran next. thanks for viewing guys.

I tend to use UESP myself, but this is a nice resource. More sources for info is never a bad thing. Lots of work, too. Kudos :)

Thanks! Those guys that maintain UESP are gods, but I'm glad you can get some use out of this too.

hey, This sounds like you're doing some awesome work! I personally probably won't be using it because i feel the need to go through the game and learn everything I can on my own, but this will be helpfull to others, and maybe even me when i replay it or something! good work!

Excellent! I perfectly understand where you're coming from. The game is brilliant on it's own and I do hope this is used to supplement the experience, not control it. It's a beautiful game, and so much fun when you don't know what to expect. The edginess is part of the reason I got seriously into this game all those years ago. It was the game that didn't tell me what to do. But it was nice sometimes to see where to go next, especially considering the terrible directions you sometimes get. Haha.

Update 3: 29 January 2013 - House Telvanni has been released, go check it out! Guide views have skyrocketed. For a 10 year old game I think I hit 30+ views today alone. Nearing 150 unique views after 7 days. I'll keep on updating. I seem to have a good 3 day pace for each next part. So expect House Redoran soon. Mage's Guild is being played in the background.

Once again, if anyone has any requests I'm open. I was contemplating doing a section for Tamrielic Lore items or starting the Daedric Quests as a break from Factions, but we'll see how I feel after a few more days.

Update 4: 31 January 2013- House Redoran is up. Go check it out!
Siziol Feb 3, 2013 @ 4:47pm 
Update 5: 3 February 2013- Mage's Guild is up! Fighter's Guild is next. Thanks for the views and the favorites guys. It's really cool to see this thing growing.

Update 6 - Little bit of a poor update today. I've been running MW off of an SSD and it's been fantastic, while playing MW another game seemed to update a metric ton of gigs causing the SSD HD to run out of space and batch error the crap out of my savegames. It's mostly salveagable. I had already finished the most recent set of quests and the I should be able to just keep on keeping on. Everything but my list of completed factions seems to have been saved. If I continue to have problems, I'll be taking a snapshot of my character and starting a new game. I'll set the skills and level to what it already was, and move on with the guide. Fighter's guild is still expected to come out tomorrow. Although my use of maps might change (as my world map has also disappeared).

Update 7 - Fighter's Guild Guide is up. Which is surprising considering how awesome Fire Emblem is. Haha. Next up is the Daedric Quests. Later this week(end) will bring the Imperial Cult and Legion. I'm going to try to get all the stuff I have picture wise put out over the next week and a half. I want to start the expansions soon. I'm getting that itch in the game. Haha.
Siziol Feb 9, 2013 @ 9:05am 
Update 8 - Daedric Quests are up. Go check it out.
Siziol Feb 18, 2013 @ 9:35am 
Update 9 - Back on the horse, the Imperial Cult Guide has been published. Later today or near futureish I'll be pushing out the Imp Legion.
