tes: oblivion for the first time

#1chelthPosted 2/22/2013 7:46:44 PM
i haven't been trying to level efficiently and i've been playing a sort of jack of all trades character. i'm level 16 with all my stats in the 50s-60s. i think it's come back to bite me. i have a terribly hard time on the main missions, and now i just got killed by some ogre in a 1v1 fight out in the wilds. now i could have killed him if i'd used my super electric magic staff or drank a potion, but c'mon... it's ONE lowly ogre. i shouldn't have to resort to that.

do i just need to find some better equipment or am i pretty much screwed? i kind of want to start over and make a more magic oriented character and say to hell with fighting with weapons, getting BLOCKED11!!11 all the time, and having to repair after every skirmish.

Have you tried turning the difficulty down?

If you're playing a jack of all trades then why would you stop yourself from using something you have. That's like a merchant running in to kill a camp of bandits instead of say... Hiring people to do it like they normally would.

What are your stats and equipment exactly?

Also some enemies are just badasses trolls and ogres shouldn't be treated like cannon fodder sometimes you have research things, listen to rumors, and approach enemies with caution. For instance trolls have health regeneration so you have to kill them fast, but they're weak to fire.

As for ogres I'm pretty sure they're weak to electric damage but have pretty big health, damage and some damage resistance.

level 16

INTELLIGENCE-67
WILLPOWER-69
AGILITY-53
SPEED-58
ENDURANCE-65
PERSONMALITY-51
LUCK-65

i found out that i'd i leveled perfectly and evenly distributed my my stats at this level they should be about.

STRENGTH-79
INTELLIGENCE-89
WILLPOWER-89
AGILITY-79
SPEED-79
ENDURANCE-69
PERSONMALITY-79
LUCK-65

so i guess i did pretty bad... i may start over and just shoot for getting 3/3/3 at the very least. or 3/3/luck

that would give me:
STRENGTH-60
INTELLIGENCE-70
WILLPOWER-70
AGILITY-60
SPEED-60
ENDURANCE-55
PERSONMALITY-60
LUCK-65

or

STRENGTH-53
INTELLIGENCE-63
WILLPOWER-63
AGILITY-53
SPEED-53
ENDURANCE-48
PERSONMALITY-53
LUCK-81

which doesn't seem a whole lot better than my current stats :/

start over

Just get realistic leveling, and your current character will be fixed.
