    where's your toque, eh?
    How far have you gotten through the mages guild?

    You need to do that shit for it to be of any benefit.

    higher level enchants require better soul gems, ie. grand soul gem

    enchanting the weapon/armor adds effects to the item

    for example you could enchant a sword to add fire damage and shit like that, it's actually really useful

    also you use the soul gems to recharge the uses of a enchanted weapon

    dont bother with any of that shit. swords are more powerful than any magic and you can just go throw slashing everything to bits pretty easily.

    The soul gem sizes basically let you trap larger souls (harder enemies). You can trap a rat in a grand soul gem but it will give you the same effect as trapping it in a petty soul gem.

    get the sword of umbra, but don't give it to the one character, it allows you to collect souls when you kill people

    the bigger the soul gem and bigger the soul, the more magic is restored to your enchanted weapon when you use them. Plus, better gems mean better possible effects when you enchant a weapon.

    lol i haven't gotten through it at all. i'm suspended at the moment. didn't realize mages guild had anything to do with it. i bought this game as a reaction to fallout3, so i'm still pretty noobish at it.

    meh I always end up playing through the game as a ranger or assassin... just more fun to sneak around and shoot arrows at everything.

    and all I would do is go into an Oblivion gate, just before I grabed the Sigil at the end, I would save the game. Grab the sigil, if it wasnt what I wanted reload the game, grab it again because it would just randomly spawn the sigil anyway.

    I remember having almost 100% invisibility

    I just started a dark elf when i got the GOTY edition a week ago. shivering isles is nice :cool: way better than the fallout 3 DLC IMO. I hope Knights of Nine is good too.

    This play through im doing a little of everything, sword/bow/magic :)

    Knights of the Nine is alot of running around, some fights, alot of praying, and one epic fight at the end. then you die. but you get some really awesome armor out of it :bigthumb:
