good bye overpowered character
i gave up on power crafting from the start just killed the fun of the game. was getting to whiterun to warn the jarl about helgen and was done with enchant alchemy smithing and was already level 45 BUT with the best gears in the game so that killed my fun. NOW im playing vanilla, no dg no simcity no dragonborn. pure raging pure everything. my only mod because its the only one i find logical is left hand ring. lets see whos game of doing it too :)

ive played many times just doing a questline and some side quests to give me the skills to continue with that questline. because as you get more powerful it gets less fun for me.
Around lvl 40 or so you either have to turn skills legendary or train /use skills you dont want.
ive also done just collecting shouts or stones of bereziah(whatever). doing it this way i never get overly bored with the game. i also use alternate start to immediately be a member of a guild or placed in a certain spot to get going right away.

starting the game with a 450 dmg axe +200 chaos +150 magic dmg is lame imo so thats what im doing right now tho i will ignore the dragonborn main scenario after i killed the first dragon to unlock the option of buying the home. i find it obnoxious and pointless and it once you've beaten alduin you cant put a permenant stop to the war =,= im going bounty hunter imperial side with the werewolf clan ( not using werewolf either)

If you are looking to breathe life into the game...I was in the same boat... I downloaded the Requiem mod and tried the game.


It makes it very challenging. ....It was almost too challenging.

i'll go through every expansion one at a time. i love the dawngard, troll follower is epic specially if you do an orc xD dragonborn got me off a little due to the never ending side quest being nearly al there and where the mobs are way too strong sometimes xD i remember giong there to get a darn bounty hunter quest =,= yay me as a caster surrounded with ash mobs and heartfire i shall keep my mouth shut for now.

Ya' know, whenever I read posts like this, I have to wonder if they'd feel the same way, if they were actually living it, rather than just gaming it. (Hey, I'm a writer. That's the sort of wondering we do. Though I'm not a journalist writer.) So, would people that complain about being too wealthy and/or powerful in a game world, complain the same if they were such in the Real World? I'm curious, because I spend a lot of time and effort trying to become wealthy in a game, so then why would I complain when I've made it? If only it were so easy in Real Life! I've not started over because the game became too easy though. I've started over, because I keep finding new mods, and a lot of them want new games, or if they don't specify that, my game gets messed up anyway. I don't think that I'm being envious here of those that have such an easy time of it, that they "get bored", enough to want to relaunch with a new character, just so you know, before someone suggests that. I'm just flabbergasted that it happens.

I have over 2000 hrs with xbox and pc and it is just this playthrough that i have decided to use more than just a few mods to adjust this or that. N ever have i really been bored but the thought of me raising my 2 handed skill to get perks in illusion annoys me. so other than 2 complete playthroughs i usually do what i wnt and get out. Plus i love bretons and dumner so i have a hard time deciding which i want to spend 300 hours with

Thanks for your reply! I have "2326" hours, only on PC. I just checked. I only know that, thanks to "Steam" keeping track for me. That's nice of them to do that too. Hmm. I see, I think. I've yet to do all that much with other races. Once I learned about, "BAT EveryPerk", I don't think about how I'm going to raise them. I used to go to the place with the container that had all of the skill books in it, and "read" them and that got my characters up into the 20s, level wise. I did that just so that they would be counted in the journal. Ditto for the spell tomes. I accidently discovered, that with "BAT EveryPerk", I don't need to do that, as it raised the skills too, and well as supplies all of those spells. But it does so while leaving one at Level One. I set my own level to 100, when I found out that Thomas doesn't appear unless you're Level 18 or higher when you first enter Bleak Falls Barrow. But I was too late! So I had to have him placed at me, then witness Riverwood's townfolk kill him off, so he's dead as he was intended to be anyway, before I loot him. Err, sorry to digress.

I don't know if I should mention this or not, but most of my characters have been Imperial Females, because most of the mods I use, are female body mods. Just once I'd like to make one that can make it all the way to game's end. (Ditto for "Oblivion".) Then maybe I'll try other types of people. As a player, I began trying to recreate myself in the game world, but I didn't like being forced to do actions that I myself wouldn't do. So I stopped doing that. Though there are mods that can change it, so I don't have to do some of those actions. I'm still in search of perfecting my Imperial Female. My problem I think, is too many options!

Having too many options in Real Life, slows me down too. Just ask any celebrity that as asked me to pick my favorite picture of them, for an autograph! ;-) Or ask any waitress that as asked me what I want to eat or drink.

Well, now you know that I'm a writer, you know why I gave you a rather lengthy reply. But I most likely won't be repeating this anywhere else, save for a clip and paste effort. I tend to try and not repeat myself.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
what i fell asleep
oh there are too many options hence my restarteritis plus i keep finding new mods, too many in fact

I am doing the opposite.
I am using 1 character. If I beat the game, I restart completely. after writing down her HP, magika, stamina, and skill levels.

Then before they cut off my head, I type it all in. So I can continue a story (even if it is the same stories over and over). I may stop once I mastered all skills.

To be honest, I almost did as well. But hey, don't ask if you don't want the answer! ;-)

I think that you've stated what my game goal is! Thanks!

Good for you! Be careful though to avoid addiction and wrist problems.
