  3. Master difficulty lol..
4 years ago#1
Ok so I started a new game with my Khaajit "thief" Bow/1hand

Without the bow master difficulty is impossible. The spider boss in bleak falls near the start only way to kill it is to sit in the other room and spam arrows. It is impossible to melee most enemy's in master difficulty.

The spider 1 shots you by the way...

I have been playing Expert mode with my thiefish character and without sneaking and the bow it would be absolutely impossible. I don't know if it's because my character has an awful armor rating with light armor or what, but I can't even raise light armor because getting hit takes so much health.

They should have added some EXP multipliers for harder modes or something.

Master difficulty should be renamed LOL mode, because it's just impossible. You get one shotted by everything, I think it's a joke difficulty honestly

ive found most beth games near impossible at the highest difficulty. Or just incredibly and horribly tedious.

Adept is completely playable.

I started off on Master and got to level 20 but I didn't enjoy the 30 hours it took to get CLOSE to that.

Each mission feels like you are being r**** in the a** for the hour or so you are in the dungeon and if you see a mage FORGET ABOUT IT.

I was playing an archer and I would have to pull out all the stops just to kill 3 guys.. I enjoy Adept difficulty far more.

I can't even imagine that fight on master difficulty. Easily the hardest fight I've encountered so far (I'm about 8 hours past it) on expert mode and I managed to sword and shield it to death. Shield is your friend on expert.

Me too. Adept seems just right. It's difficult, but not TOO difficult. Some fights are meant to be challenging.

Oh gawd I forgot about mages haven't encountered any yet..... My strategy is going to be the same as it is now though on master. Find a high spot hide behind something spam arrows repeat..

Completely agree, been playing on adept only and I'm just imagining what some of my melee fights would have been like on the harder difficulties. I beat the spider using melee on adept but used some poisons, the Oakflesh spell and used the 50pt flame scroll I found in the dungeon when I got into trouble.

Adept is great though, I feel challenged when I'm supposed to be challenged, I have to think and use my potions and abilities to beat the mini bosses.

Definitely second master's LOL difficulty... I was playing a Mace n' board Char with restoration for healing and I just gave up on it. I was friggen wearing fully upgraded orcish armor while still being owned by bandit chieftains.

I actually have a better name for it: Munchkin difficulty. It's Bethesda's way of controlling people that abuse the system horribly (which this installmant means enchantment, smithing, conjuration, one handed, block, and your choice of armor).
