how do you get to the mehrunes razor, and actavate the rock wall. It will not let me shift.

The Elderly said...

not sure where you are, but

SPOILER ALERT

activate the two Enchanted Pedestals (with the collected Bezoars) on either side of the wall to unseal it.

Having gotten the Drothan key from Frathen Drothan in Final room either way your going to have to fight Msirac Faythung (the carbonised soldier), when he dies the gate/wall opens

Hope i'm on track here?

i am at the part where i have just collected the 4 book for the sacred dawn deadric cult and i am look through them and i need to figuire out the location of thier temple or some place i need help locating it i just cant figuire it out.

The Elderly said...

head back to the Arcane University in the Imperial City

(set your current quest to the mission and you'll get a directional arrow in red or green on your compass)

head in and talk to the lizard wizard...

conrad said...

i was expelled from the mages guild were can i find redwart flowers.

The Elderly said...

To find Redwort flowers visit: south of Fieldhouse Cave in County Leyawiin, the Ayleid ruins of Morahame or Wendelbelk, or scour the West Weald for them. The space between Bravil and Skingrad has many types of flora.

conrad said...

how often do plants regenerate
and
is there any really usefull advice you can give me

The Elderly said...

I've searched and can't find a definitive answer, anything it appears from a week to a month, the seasons even affect how sucessful your harvest will be.

If your having difficulty getting the ingredients, try alchemy shops and Mage Guild NPC's if you want to buy the Dragon Heart and Redwort Flowers.

The following link is a mages faq (loads of spoilers, so be careful what you read) it gives a bit more details on where you might find the elusive ingredients, but not enough to pin point them.

sorry!

conrad said...

you are a big help on this site also, is ther any good tip for a fighter/theif/mage

The Elderly said...

wow a tough question!, trying to improve your attributes across the three disciplines is difficult, frankly i don't know how your surviving the thieving bit.

Check your main attibutes (principal skill levels) and seek to alternate your training/experience to boost these skills.

The difficulty i've found that as I increase in levels things get a lot harder.... so I used fighter/mage/scout as they have complementary and crossover skills which makes things alot easier.

light armour will help your thieving skills (even the material your boots are made of), so get skilled up in your light armour department, thereby making less noise when moving about. Check out what spells might best assist your fighter and thief characteristics.

I suppose the best advice i can give is visit the forums, find others that are playing the same three roles and share notes, they're bound to have picked tips you and i haven't managed to find yet.

not much use to your question but the following link, is a good reference point for character classes and skills

conrad said...

is there such a spell as a damage rfelction spell? if so where do you get it.

The Elderly said...

sourced from oblivion wiki

"Reflect Damage is a difficult spell to acquire. Normally, you won't be able to find it anywhere in the game. Only those born under The Sign of The Tower are able to cast Reflect Damage and use this spell effect to create custom spells at the Spellmaking Altar. Currently, it is the only way to gain access to the Reflect Damage spell effect"

which cave do you find the ebony armor in or where do you find it

The Elderly said...

The higher your level, the better chance of picking the ebony armour up from a fallen marauder.

Otherwise the Umbra ebony armour and sword are to be gotten from a female warrior in Vindasel Dungeon.

Umbra is to the Southwest of the Imperial City in a Daedric shine called Vindasel.

The character has nothing to say and won't attack unless attacked. Which is a tad. However she's part of a quest available from level 20 on. You wouldn't kill a defenceless woman now would you?

where can i find glass and elven armor

The Elderly said...

The higher your level say level 20, the better your chances of picking up the glass or the elven armour from bandits or marauders. If you've a low level your chances are slim. Not aware of any specific locations.

i am looking in roland jenersics house on the "virtuios blood" quest but can't find any clues in his house. where can i find them

The Elderly said...

search on the first floor for a love letter. It may be either on the first floor on top of a drawer or on top of a book on a table on the ground floor. The letter mentions Roland Jenseric's cabin east of the Imperial City in the Great Forest where the two lovers would meet. (While in Roland's house, you may want to visit the basement, too, for some insights into Roland's lifestyle!)

i am on the canvas the castle mission and found the paint supplies in chanels room. i've looked all over and can't find anything else. can you point me in the right direction?

The Elderly said...

Ahhh!! this one had me stumped as well!

your missing the paint footprints on the carpet in the dining room (least that was my problem)

or/and

A suspicious painting - at the bottom of the West Tower, look for a trapdoor

with the three clues (the tools in channels room, the suspicious painting, the footprints) you can then confront.......... the guilty party.

Anonymous said...

is there any way to kill some one who goes unconscious

The Elderly said...

You can continue attacking characters or creatures when they're unconscious, and this does lower their health, theoretically if they're health is low enough when they become unconscious, you can kill them, but i've not tried it.

Sleeping characters go through their wakeup animation, which gives you an good opportunity to kill them before they fight back. Some quest characters will always bounce back (can't be killed).

It's probably not the answer your looking for, hope it's of some help!

what is the most powerful weapon in the game and how do you go about getting it?

The Elderly said...

if your between levels 1-20 the Arguable one of the most powerful weapons in the game is in the hands of Umbra, a soldier located in an Ayleid ruin to the southwest of the Imperial City. If you explore the countryside, you should be able to find Vindasel on the shore directly to the southwest of the Waterfront district, near where the road forks. Heading into this single-level dungeon will let you meet up with Umbra face to face. The catch? Umbra (the sword and the warrior have the same name) can be monstrously tough to defeat.

Greater than level 20 try fully upgraded Daedric longsword or take a peek at the following (major spoilers)

im on the quest amelions debt and i found every peice of armor exept the helmet any ideas where it is in the cave and where or how do you get imperial watch and imperial palace armor.

The Elderly said...

Okay the Sword and Cuirass are in plain view, on a bier in between two coffins. Open the wooden door at the end of this area, once you have retrieved the grieves, sword and cuirass. Before jumping down this hole, look to the left past the Wisp Stalks and you will find the helmet.

Far as i can tell the imperial watch/palace armour is unwearable unless you've a pc and download one of the countless mods, apparently Bethesda opted to lock the armour for reasons best known to themselves... so if like me your on 360 we must wait and see if Bethesda release a plugin.

Imperial Dragon Armour is available as a reward for completing the main quest.....

say if i kill a person with an important key or something and the body disapears after a while when the key or object is still in them is that object out of the game forever

The Elderly said...

important Characters can't be killed, they just get knocked unconscious.

Loot is randomly generated and can be lost if left lying on a dead body. to the best of my knowledge.. key items left in a vanishing body remain in place where the body lay. But theres always the exception so i wouldn't test it too much..... Some bodies never disintegrate..like the monk at Weynon Priory,

when you get infected with vampirism and you have to go see the witch, she says that she will only give the cure if you get her five empty grand soul gems. where can i find the ones she wants?

The Elderly said...

lifted from oblivion vampir cure guide.


"Inside each Mages guild, there is a shop. Each shop should have one empty Grand Soul Gem for sell. Buy it, or if your good at thievery, pickpocket it. If for some reason these shops do not have Gems, here are a few more places they can be found, though they will be a bit trickier to get.

You can find one for sale in the Mystique shop in Imperial City. Three more can be found in the Arcane University. It requires picking a level 5 lock, so I hope your skilled at this. It is best to go at night where you won’t be seen. Go inside, and on the first floor there is a chest with three Gems inside. All are Grand gems, but I believe two of them are not empty. Take them all anyways, the full ones will fetch you a good amount of gold. For another gem, head to the Chorral Mage's Guild. Inside, there is a staircase, and display cases to the left and right. The one to the right looks tempting, three gems inside. None are grand though, save your picks. The one the left has one. It's another level 5 lock, so good luck to you."

what is the best light armor in the game and how can i get it?

The Elderly said...

For beginners the best light armor is Brusefs Amelion Armor. Complete Amelions quest or head to Leyawiin (the city to the south). Just outside the city you can find a tomb called Amelion Tomb.

The ulimate base light armor is Glass armor available randomly from fallen characters or chests when you've reached level 20. see:

http://www.uesp.net/wiki/
Oblivion:Armor#Light_Armor

glass armor can be enchanted with a sigil stone, dont' rush to augment your favourite light armor too soon, as later sigil stones will have higher enchantments

unique light armor items on
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/
Oblivion:Unique_Items#Unique_Cuirasses

all of these are for nought of course unless you constantly strive to increase your light armor skill, to that end get clobbered a few times wearing light armour before finishing off your foe.

okay i keep hearing people in towns talking about summer set isle and im wondering wheres is it located also where would i go about finding daedric armor or weapons?

The Elderly said...

Summerset Isle is a large island to the south-west of Tamriel's mainland. Home of the Altmer (called High Elves by Imperials), of whom magic is said to flow through their very veins.

During the game of Oblivion you may overhear NPCs talking about trouble in Summerset Isle, in particular that Daedra worship is becoming increasingly popular there.

more info from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summerset_Isles

Daedric weapons and armor you won't see the armor until you are level 20, but once you hit level 20, it's all over the place. Of course, you can snag it earlier in the PC version using a mod.

what is the highest level you can get your character to? this site has been very useful so thanks

The Elderly said...

Theoretically its 100 but the actual number (what you can reach) depends on your starting skills, class of character, birthsign etc.

Check
http://www.linklost.com/occ/

which gives an indication how high you can level a given character (results show max Level when all major skills are maxed at 100, which then prevents any further leveling)

Thank you for you kind comment, it is much appreciated...

Anonymous said...

if your major skills are maxed out and you want to raise your level still to increase your attributes there is a way: go commit a crime and go to jail, this will lower your skills but not your level so then you can level up...note:the more severe the crime, the higher the bounty and the higher your skills will go down..

The Elderly said...

Excellent never knew that, thanks anonymous

Anonymous said...

to raise your level faster when your a mage go to a place where you can sleep and cast your chosen spell repeatedly. when you run out of magicka just use the bed and cast it again. this will raise your level alot quicker.

where are bear pelts? I was expeled from the fighters.

The Elderly said...

happened me too and so bloody annoyed was i, (having done nothing to earn the expulsion) I started the game again, only to discover that accidentally hitting your horse could lead to be expelled...

anyway the bear pelts can either be purchased in shops or you have to find the great big looming beast and kill em!.... I couldn't beleive it either... you've literally got to go and kill yourself the pelts required.....

most people who sell miscellaneous goods will sell bear pelts, however once you get to level 12-15, bears are everywhere

The best place to find them is Blackwood, east of Leyawiin. While fairly tough, they always drop a single pelt when killed.

Also any idea where you can find the 2 plants needed to get back into the mages guild (I stole fromt hem and then got expelled!) ManY Thanks

The Elderly said...

re locked display case

Several of the Guild Houses have locked display cabinets which can be lockpicked safely for the purposes of raising your security skill. As an added bonus, if your a member of the guild usually it's not stealing to take what's in the cases and the contents are often valuable.

Unfortunately I haven't attempted opening the leyawin case, if your going to try it make sure you have at least two save files to undo any ill effects.

The Elderly said...

re Shipwrecked boat

I'm assuming we're on the Emma May?

head to the mid-level of the hull, fighting past the ghosts of the crew, and eventually to the lower level, where you will be attacked by the ghost of the leader of the mutiny himself. He has very potent spells available, which will drain your willpower and encumber you.

After defeating the traitor, take a small key from his remains and unlock the final room of the wrecked ship.

if your still having problems defeating him, wait until your a higher level or have acquired more skills or spells and then go back



expelled from mages guild

you are assigned to collect alchemical supplies either 20 Vampire Dusts or 20 Daedra Hearts and 20 Dragon's Tongue and 20 Redwort Flowers depending on your level.

Try alchemy shops and Mage Guild NPC's if you want to buy the Dragon's Tongues and Redwort Flowers, although you'll probably have to wait for enough quantity to respawn.

There's a large concentration of Dragon's Tongue flowers to be found around the entrance to Fort Redwater near the Black Marsh border, northeast of Leyawiin at the last fork of the Panther River, and a few found in the West Weald region between Skingrad and Bravil.

Redwort flowers are southeast of Fieldhouse Cave in Leyawiin County near Black Marsh border, and around the Aeylid ruins of Wendelbek and Morahame along the Panther river on the east side of Nibena Bay. There are also small amounts found in the West Weald region between Skingrad and Bravil.

Whats an easy way to get full ebony?

The Elderly said...

I've been reliably informed (though i haven't tested it) that the easiest place to get almost the full set of Ebony armor is the Dark brotherhood mission where you have to "purify" the guild. However the down side is that If you want to join the DB you have to murder an innocent citizen. So i avoided that option.

Generally Ebony armour dosen't start appearing (randomly) until you reach level 15, one marauder may have parts of the armour, then the next one the greaves and the helmet for example, and so on....

Jack said...

I seem to be stuck on the Dagon Shrine Quest in the main story. I cant seem to get the book out of there i get killed to easy. What level do u recommend me to do it at?

The Elderly said...

greetings Jack! no matter what level your on this is a toughie,

One way to keep all of your equipment is to dump all of your stuff just before speaking to Harrow. You can then pick it up the moment after you agree to hand everything over. This allows you to enter the next section fully equipped without blowing your cover. It's also possible to pickpocket Harrow to recover your goods.


Once you have stolen the book go up the stairs turn right and go through the door on the left. can't precisely remember the directions but eventually you should come across a passage blocked by a rock, pull the lever near it to activate it and the exit is just beyond that.

if you can kill one of the mythic Dawn with ease then your strong enough to take on the lot..

building on your fighting skills and strength (or magic powers) for your current level, prior to entering will make the fights easier, leveling merely ramps up their ability to fight back. once you've got the book, you don't have to kill them all, just run like the clappers.....

Casting frenzy spells on the the mythic dawn will allow you to pass through most of the caverns without being attacked

Jack said...

Thanks for that last bit of help, I have another question now. I left some of my stuff I had in a cupboard in the Dark Brotherhood sanctuary in cheydinhal after i completed all of the tasks and had seen the Night Mother. I came back later and they were gone. Unfortunately the stuff i left in the cupboard were some of the bonus rewards from the contracts. Is there anyway to get these back?

The Elderly said...

If you put you stuff into "third party" barrels, crates or cupboards, you will lose them after a while, the containers "regenerate",every 7 game days or so....

Containers in a house you buy are safe to store in and do not regenerate.

Unfortunately i know no way of getting the loot back.... and beleive me i've looked, take heart in the fact the same thing has happened to nearly all of us....

Thieves Guild members Glistel and Fathis Ules hang out at The Oak and Crosier, but from what little i can find, it's a normal basement and nothing strange or shady happens.

1600 is the limit for the 360, the pc version may has a mod (but i couldn't find one).

Your quite right though, it would have been logical, but i have my doubts whether the game was play tested to the point of perfection. I would expect though (without any programming knowledge0 assume it would be a fairly simple matter to fix... in the form of a little plugin..... we can only hope the developers read the forums

(makes tea......)

I am doing the main quest, and i've figured out the code for the books. I cant find the right grave, however, to find the shrine. I saw someone else's comment saying that you go back to talk to the lizard lady, but when i go back to talk to her, she isnt there. What do I do???
HELP!

The Elderly said...

If you've cracked the code it may be you no longer need tar-meena

finding the grave: SPOILERS
Green Emperor Way is in the Palace District. The game's quest marker will lead you to the Tomb of Prince Camarril. Otherwise you'll have to walk around the graveyard until you find it.

Wait around until near noon (after 11:00am). You'll see red runes glow on the Tomb that show the location of the Mythic Dawn's shrine (activate the tomb).

interesting trick i learned, dont know if it was intentional but after you have the ability to enchant spells use it to enchant at least 5 items that you wear doesnt matter what they are. enchant them with chameleon,(if you use grand soul gems with grand souls you will get chameleon 20 for each enchantment. this effect is stacked for each item you are wearing with the enchantment once you get it up to or past 100 npc's will not be able to see you at ALL! even gaurds. i figured this out and went on a guard killing spree(my bounty was 80000 gold when i was done) and going to areas that are normally very hard to get into without getting caught. its basically a license to do whatever you want in the game. careful though at higher levels creatures have a chance of spotting you when you attack them as long as the dont face you after you hit them your golden. also if a guard does approach you just choose to resist arrest hell tell you to pay with your blood and then not be able to find you its actually pretty funny. remember, the game is like way way way to easy after you do this but its really not a cheat so i dont feel bad. hope it helps

Anonymous said...

I am once again in need of your assistance "elderly gamer".I looked up this cheat most people have probably heard of it it's called the unnamed sword on top of the fighting chance store it tells you to be there at 12:00 it dosen't say am or pm but i wen't thee both times using the paint brush glitch and nothing appeared is that cheat a sham?

The Elderly said...

Glacious that's incredible... I can just imagine the hilarity, haven't played for a while now, but im trying this out when i go back... im sure it'll help, hell it's got me itching to try it... thank you for taking the time to post

The Elderly said...

i haven't tried it though the original appeared on gamewinners.com and another version on 1up...

the version i've seen dosen't specify a time, merely duplicating the paintbrushs (which should hang in mid air) and using them to "climb" to the roof of the Fighting chance where you'll find a chest supposedly containing the unnamed sword.

seems dubious, and the forums are awash with "friends" of "friends" who found it... as the item was hotly debated for a number of months and nobody has posted definitive proof it exists.. i'd be 80% sure it was a sham

as backup to this beleif, the item isn't even mentioned on the Oblivion wiki... which is a definitive guide to the game

Anonymous said...

as glacious said, you can do the same thing if you enchant 5 equipted items and use the shield enchant thing. it works the same way exept you can be invinsible.

thanks anon, I could have done with that trick on a number of occasions, running for all i was worth back to the nearest village pursued by a myriad of daedroth and clannfear....

Hello, I stumbled on this site because i am in dire need of daedra hearts. I have completed the main quest already, and i accidently killed a battle mage on this one mission. I already have 20 vampire dusts, and 9 daedra hearts, i just need eleven more, and I have no idea where to find them. I am a low level, so maybe that has something to do with not being able to find them?

The Elderly said...

Glad you stumbled by anon..

Daedra are easist to find before you have completed the Main Quest, so you 've got a particular toughie on your hands

Starting at level 12, alchemy stores may randomly stock them, but you will probably have to wait for enough stock to respawn.

theres a "staff of worms" glitch, though i haven't tried it, but reliably reported on uesp wiki
which allows you to repopulate daedric hearts on any Dremora.. see
Staff of Worms on:

the staff of worms is held by Mannimarco, King of Worms.

Hey I was doing the mages guild quests still wanting the daedric set because I can wear heavy armor (I am a master) and I got to the third to last part and got the daedric legs chest boots and claymore and later on finished the quest chain. I am now wanting to get the gauntlets and helmet but can't seem to get them anywhere in the actual oblivion plains and I don't want to kill the person in Roxy Inn. Any idea where I can find the two pieces? I am level 26 almost 27 btw

Anonymous said...

I posted a comment earlier about the daedric armor and not wanting to kill the person in the inn... I got back to oblivion (360 btw) and saw another person with all but gauntlets and helmet as well that was an npc in anvil. I just want to add that I also don't want to have to kill any npc unless it is one that will attack me first. For example: One in a cave like a necromancer. Oh btw this is my #1 site to go to. Good work! It rocks!

The Elderly said...

thank you for such kind words, greatly appreciated...
(bows to anonymous..)

i fully understand why you want to keep a clean slate,

from lvl 20 on the armor begins appearing at random..though it'll come as no surprise that consensus on the forums say both Daedric helmets and gauntlets are extremely difficult to find..not impoosible, but frustrating...

the only positive tip offered was based on the respawning of bandits.. the suggestion was to retrace any route wher'd you'd previously encountered a total of a least three bandits, who should respawn every 3 days or so.. in the hope that lady luck will smile on you.

hopefully by the time your read this you'll have found at least one, leaving a exciting? non scripted quest to be resolved..

at least two of the forums i visited suggested that a pandoras box of various artifacts including ...Daedric gauntlets and helmets were to be found once they'd downloaded the plugin Mehrunes' Razor. I can't confirm whether this is true or not, but the cave in the plugin does turn up a vast amount of treasure...

But

i'd feel a very unhappy bunny having forked out for a plugin only to find neither gauntlets or helmets...

sorry i struck out on this one...

Your info about the daedric pieces helped a bit. Luckily I decided to do a quest and walked into the house I needed to and I was instantly attacked by 2 people. One of them was a marauder (Bandit) And luckily he was wearing both the boots and gauntlets. so I atleast got my gauntlets! :) Thanks a ton. btw if you do get any more info about the helmet please do leave a comment!

Anonymous said...

well elderly thank you for all your help on the daedric armor even if you couldn't find exact stuff... I got the helmet with an enchant on it... the life detect in swampy cave. And Anon for your glass helmet go there where I got my daedric helmet (swampy cave) it has 105 or 150 ft life detect on it. Bring a few lockpicks if you don't have the skeleton key because the chests are hard difficulty. it will be in the first cave and not through the door. Just go to like the cave farthest to the right of the door when you first walk in and it is still behind you. there are a few chests in it and you have to find the right one. good luck. as you may get another one but I highly doubt it!

borley444 said...

ok I am really getting mad here. I was playing Oblivion earlier and I died. Well when I went to load the game and it finished loading I was still where I died and I could still see my sword floating and etc. like I had just been in the middle of attacking and dieing. Well I can look around but can't move. so I loaded the game again and it was the same thing only it was where the saved game was. all of my things were going up except my health. I went and drank potions still... nothing. so I restarted the 360 and go back in and it like froze right as it finished loading but it wasn't really frozen. it was like the screen wasn't showing up for the save. I went into the memory and had corrupted data which I then deleted. it still continued to happen and there is maybe one game that I know of that won't have that happen and I can play the game but it is so far away from what I was at with the latest save. has anyone else had this problem? If so please tell me how to fix it except restarting the game...

daleyboi said...

can't say thats ever happened 2 me borley444 sorry. y dont you ask the elderly? and to the elderly, jus wondering if the rumor about there being a unicorn in oblivion and if so where is it? cheers

borley444 said...

dale the unicorn is near the inn of ill omen. go east when there to harcane grove and you will find it. it is just as fast as the white horse. btw it will attack you as you get there so I went to the inn and went in and it stopped. that is when you get on it. as well as don't take your weapon out near it when not in combat or it attacks you again and won't stop until killed and it is the only one in the game

The Elderly said...

sorry guys i was missing in action for a few days, nice to meet you both (nods ot borley44 and daleyboi

Borley44 That is one serious snarl up on the 360, corrupted data is rare, though reports from people who had downloaded the latest plugin "shivering Isles" also mention corrupted data, see start of

http://xboxmeagain.blogspot.com/2007/04/
shivering-isles-walkthrough.html

Whatever is going on it isn't normal and I know of no fix.. are other 360 games affected?

I've restarted Oblivion a total of three times now all because the game auto-saved when i didn't want it to, and have learned to keep at least 3 save game files, there is nothing more frustrating than having to play back old ground..

If no other 360 games are affected, and you haven't downloaded shivering isles, then it's down to the autosave function...

Daleyboi, indeed as borley44 pointed out there is a unicorn.. see wiki page: Spoiler Alert:

The Elderly said...

dubious as it seems and I stress I haven't managed to get this to work, the forums are full of friends of friends who got this trick to work..... hmmmm

But apparently you place a paintbrush (using the “move” button Z or the left bumper) about waist-high and release…it will remain there. the story goes that can then jump upon it and place another brush higher, thus building a paintbrush ladder to the heavens.

funny though how it works for some??? and not for others. An interesting distraction if you have a paintbrush in hand, but I wouldn't spend much time on it.... the PC version is more plausible...

i finished the dark brotherhood quest and the lucien said he gave me shadowmere but ive looked everywhere around the fort and havent found it. Ive gotten on my old account easily, is this a glitch?

The Elderly said...

The downside to Shadowmere is that she sometimes decides to wander off, and you either have to go find her or wait for her to wander back to Fort Farragut (near cheyindal) where she Stands outside. nor is shadowmere included in the "Horses Owned" statistic on the stats page in game.

Shadowmere is an essential character, meaning she cant' die only get knocked unconscious.

the only reported glitch for shadowmere i can find is that once unsconsious you can load items onto his/her body for later retrieval.. though it appears knocking shadowmere unconscious could lead to being debarred from fighters and or mages guild....

hopefully it's not a glitch... and shadowmere will turn up now that we've been talking about him/her

I dont think anyone has mentioned it yet so i thought id bring it up since i found the skeleton key that you are awarded with from the dedra shrine "nocturnal" located on the far east on the map, to be very useful. u never have to worry about lock picks and it saves you money so u dont have to buy them any more...and one more thing, make sure when u have to give martin septim an deadric artifact that u give him one that u dont really want because i accidentally give him the skeleton key and had to redo that part of the game.

Once you become grand cahampion of the arena, (pretty tough, but use your spells, I went through at level 25 w/o using a single heal potion ;) ) then go back once a week to fight three minotaur lords, back down into the access chamber, it seems the 'taurs horns stick up a bit too much, they get stuck at the tunnel entrance most of the time and if they get in, then you can run out, they will be trapped inside the tunnel, if there are still free 'taurs there is always the yellow teams tunnel. after each match you get between 3600 and 4020 gp.

Vaughan said...

Ok now i've a question, anyone know how to get through the molag bal quest? i've found the guy who i'm supposed to let kill me, how do you get the cursed mace to him and how do you get him to attack, i've noticed his wife's grave is a funtional object, but apparently i'm not ready to trigger it since when I activate it nothing happens. A little help anyone?

Has anyone tried using the black soul gem rather than giving to the daedra lord?

one more comment today, in response to an older post, on the dagon shrine quest. If you refuse to give you stuff to harrow and tell him you aren't here to join then he and the other gaurd attack you, then you just have to kill a couple more in sneak mode b/f you enter the shrine, then everything will go as normal until you instigate something or get spotted trying to steal the book. I just killed them all, however most of them respawn if you come back to visit later for a little cultist- mass-suicide-on-the-end-of-your- sword! HEH!

molag Bal:
hit him with a weapon, hand-to-hand or cast an aggressive spell). You must attack him while he is at the grave; it is the only place where he will pick up the mace. Attack him elsewhere and he usually will not respond with aggression, and definitely will not use the mace, even if you have dropped it in front of him. If he is at the grave, he will pick up the mace and attack you; let him kill you.

since i restarted my game i can't seem to find out how to get my conjuration skills to go up. it is still at 15
:-( do you know any way to get it so i can conjure a scamp or something like tht

The Elderly said...

To increase any magic skill, all that you need to do is find a cheap spell and cast it over and over again

according to oblvion wiki

"The best standard conjuration spell for practice is Bound Dagger. It is one of the cheaper conjuration spells, and it is the easiest spell to chain cast. In general, bound weapon spells can more easily be chain-cast than bound armor spells: all you have to do is unequip the weapon, and the effect terminates, allowing it to immediately be cast again."

The Elderly said...

no your query is bang on topic daleyboi. No installation issues were reported for the 360.

be mindful that a quest is not immediately added to your list of current quests when you first install the mod, I hoping that this is the problem you are experiencing

Things start after you hear a rumour of an attack on the chapel in Anvil. This rumour can be heard in any town as far as I am aware. The Market District is a good place to hear it.

see the following webpage to check out the additions Knights of the nine brings to original game, that way you can be sure that your download has installed properly...

wat happens if joffry dies when you are about to go into the big oblivion gate

hi chaos, ebony armour available randomly from level 15 on, enchanted ebony from level 17

hi anon, Jauffre death won't affect gameplay (assuming your on the "defence of Bruma" quest) you will however miss out on his comments for the "light the dragonfires" quest. the game sees him as a quest item, so when he dies his body won't disappear.

I am currently @ level 23 and have aquired a fair stash of valuable items ( weapons / armour etc) that I have been storing in my mages tower for the time being as I cannot find anyone who can trade more than 1200 at any one time.
Are there any traders / shopkeepers than have a high amount of gold to buy these items ?( along the lines of the mudcrab in Morrowind )

The Elderly said...

excellent point anon.. the limitations of available merchants gold can be found on the bottom of the following wiki page, along with links to Fathis Ules (1500) and Aurelinwae (2000, wizards tower mod)

Hey, I don't understand how to use lockpicks. It really doesnt make any sense to me.

The Elderly said...

Your not alone, took me ages to get the hang of it and even still i break the odd lockpick or two... see the following for an in-depth guide

There is this display case in the Leyawiin Mages Guild that has some glowing stones in it. it says it needs a key to be unlocked i was wondering where i can get the key and what the stones inside are!!

re locked display case

Several of the Guild Houses have locked display cabinets which can be lockpicked safely for the purposes of raising your security skill. As an added bonus, if your a member of the guild usually it's not stealing to take what's in the cases and the contents are often valuable.

for the display case in the leyawiin mages Guild, forum suggest you pickpocket it from the guild leader or the alchemist lady, it appears no one knows for sure..

Unfortunately I haven't attempted opening the leyawin case, if your going to try it make sure you have at least two save files to undo any ill effects.
