Quote from CaptainWill
If you're looking at the weapon in the inventory, there will be an option to "Recharge" the weapon if you have filled soul gems. I didn't realise I could do that for ages but now I use enchanted weapons (and keep a big stash of soul gems) all the time. If you're using a 360 controller, the button to recharge is RB.
And if you're on the PC (like you should be), it's T.

If you ever need soul gems, get into the College of Winterhold. One round trip through the mages in there and you'll have 5 filled grand soul gems and an empty black soul gem (which is stupid easy to fill with a grand soul: just take the soul from a bandit or other human). I don't even bother with any soul below grand.

Collecting non-grand souls does let me level up enchanting very fast, however.

Try getting hold of Azura's Star as well if you want a soul gem which is reusable. Best advice is to do it early in the game or you'll end up facing some very strong Dremora which will take you apart in seconds. I only managed the quest by using the "Become Ethereal" shout. Depending on how you complete the quest you can get a version of the star which can absorb souls from humans (nice and easy to get grand souls) or a standard version and access to a powerful mage companion (Aranea).

Personally I never liked having companions following me in Bethesda games; exception being FNV on normal mode, cause they give you perks.

I faced them at level 50. They still went down in seconds because conjuration is awesome.

Aranea is not that great of a companion (Other mage followers exist); a reusable black soul gem is way more useful.

I thought she was better than Marcurio - but then I met her at much higher a level. Has anyone found a companion with adept or higher level spells?



None.

I really wanna know which companions are best.

It's like... I don't wanna gear them up, take them to battle, and record how good they are.

Anyone wanna give me some findings? I think there are like 3-5 that I have at my disposal right now.

...Just measure their levels with a console command. Take the highest-leveled one.

At least it'll give you an idea of what each of them can do.

I'm really glad I chose redguard. I was watching some videos and the voices on some of the other races are really dorky.

I just found out that the magic cost reduction works for weapons, too; if you have a weapon that does shock damage and you're wearing 100% reduced destruction magic cost, for example, the weapon's charge will never decrease.

I think it was already mentioned but followers are currently bugged. They level up with you but their skills do not. If your follower seems weak, do this:

Remove all items you want your follower to keep
Get follower to leave your service (wait until it says it at the top of the screen)
Enter console
Click on follower
Type "getavinfo health", or any other character stat. #this should return two values - a "current" and a "base reference". Bethesda have got the two values the wrong way around for follower levelling purposes. This way you can see what the correct stat should be (the base reference).
Type disable
Type enable
Exit console
Wait for follower to reappear and do the "getavinfo" test again. Everything should be normal.

Using this method Lydia changed from being one-shotted by Falmer to being able to take on Whiterun's town guard single-handed.

Quick questions - does gear cost reduction for spells etc effect staves? And, if so, does the Staff of Magnus count as destruction or "special" or somesuch?



Show them your butt, and when you do, slap it so it creates a sound akin to a chorus of screaming spider monkeys flogging a chime with cacti. Only then can you find your destiny at the tip of the shaft.

What does Staff of Magnus do again? Absorption? Absorption and draining fall under destruction.




Dec 14 2011, 5:28 pm CaptainWill Post #298



Yep, it drains 25 magicka from the opponent per second. If they have no magicka then it drains health. It doesn't give you the magicka/health though.



None.

The damage is pretty pathetic at high level due to the scaling but it's a good way to get rid of puppies that keep nibbling. I just threw it onto my wench so she stays out of the way of my warhammer which would surely 1shot her. It's good to know that my theory was correct, now I just need to make her a cost reduction set for permazappy. She also has that dragon priest firestaff that makes HDR flip the christ out so randomly my screen goes pure black from the fire.
