Extremely awesome tutorial. I was a little confused when I got to the part where you get the items the game tells you to get, craft the item you want to craft, and then improve the item. I wasn't sure what to do next. Now I know I should stand and rotate the screen.

crap man, ive been selling all my dragon scales. :(
Reborn  +   1545d ago
I wondered "hmm, should I sell it" when I got my first few. Then I just kept them. Then I realised in-game why it was a good choice.
Cosmit  +   1544d ago
Why would you sell something with the word dragon in it?? O.o
Heartnet  +   1544d ago
cause its like the most heaviest item in game lol

@heartnet: I bought a house in Whiterun, there are like 50+ dragon scales in my chest.
Biggest  +   1544d ago
Scales are harder to come by for me. Every dragon gave 3 bones, but 1-3 scales (more often than not it was 1).

Edit: To level smithing you could do the iron dagger thing, but leather is lighter and easier to obtain. Make lots of leather and leather strips. Craft hide armlets or helmets. Save them, which is easy because they're very light, and use them for enchanting. It raises enchantment, speech, and money (last two via selling of course).

i neee a place to stash my shit i have alot of metal and dragon scales whats the cheapest house in skyrim?
SwampCroc  +   1544d ago
the quickest house to get is probably breezehome in White Run..

it's 5000 when the option is available... gotta talk to the Jarl's Steward...

and the complete set of furnishing is probably another 1200-1500 gold...

has like a kitchen, alchemy table, bedroom set, and 2 others I believe.

it's cool... I really like how you can actually put books on the bookcases... the house in Whiterun has 2 bookcases 1 in the alchemy room and 1 in the living room... I think each level of the bookcase can hold like 11 books or something... I just put all the cool stuff like skills books and bounty letters.

thieves guild has a ton of guild chests which can store items

Lame... not on Masters. This is way too easy. It's a pain to kill Dragons on Masters. They actually feel powerful.
Liquid_Ocelot  +   1544d ago
The fuck happened to your bubbles man?
+bubbles, I need a[nother] PS3 and Skyrim:(
ThanatosDMC  +   1544d ago
Dunno, but it became four. Havent been on my PS3 been on Steam instead playing Skyrim and other games. Steam sales are bad for me... hehehe
Liquid_Ocelot  +   1541d ago
I don't even have a PS3 anymore:( I'll get another eventually, but I have other things on my plate atm. Missing out on a lot, though:(
I need to get me a good PC so I can go back to Steam.

Dragon Scales = Dragon Light Armor

Dragon Bone = Dragon Heavy Armor

Requires 100% Smithing

and whatever various items needed to create the armor at the the forge.

that being said there is a Moonlight or Lunar workbench at Silence Moon Camp I think that's what it's called.. wonder what happens when you are able to use it.... some lunar Dragon Armor would be cool...

even then... enchanting the armor would be awesome too..

the skills that didn't seem to matter in oblivion like speech, seem like they could really be beneficial...

I can forsee myself having like 10+ different builds just from the perks/skill layout.

Im a nord warrior guys and which armor do you think is best for me light or heavy?

For a warrior it would be heavy but when it comes to the stronger armors the difference doesn't seem that drastic to me so just wear whatever. I'm a Nord Warrior as well and I wear Light because I like the look of it more.
ChipChipperson  +   1544d ago
I have to get this game. I desperately want to make a character and make him look like someone from Capcom's Monster Hunter series. I'm really loving the armor designs these guys did for Skyrim, so far.
Lord_Sloth  +   1544d ago
Was a tutorial on this really necessary? It's not like it's that hard to figure out.
Canary  +   1544d ago
Absolutely not.

But it does afford us an opportunity to marvel at the profound idiocy of building an open-world game like Skyrim, whose plot and gameplay in large part revolves around crafting and dragons, where you can use almost any material to craft almost any item into weapons or armor, where you can forge two different kinds of dragon armor... but dragon swords, knives or axes? LOLNO.

i really need to level up my Smithing witch im suck at it!
NnT3291  +   1544d ago
buy iron ingots and leather strips, as many as you can. Then use them to make Iron daggers in a Blacksmith forge, and then just sell all the daggers to traders. Wait for 2 days, and then do the same thing again, you will have 100% Smithing in no time. Whiterun is the best place to do this.
Jikla  +   1544d ago
uhm...he didn't mention fortify armor? Fortify smithing. Get 100 enchantment, put perks in 20% better enchantment till you get 100% + 25% more skill enhancement. After that you make 4x 35% smithing improvement set pieces and buy an elixir of Blacksmith (50% better smithing improvement for 30 sec) and improve your armor and weapons. Now you have the most strongest armor and weapon in the game! I have a bow wwith 200 dmg :D
Stewie2k8  +   1544d ago
The light armor helmet sucks to me but the dragon heavy armor helm is just... beastly. reminds me of something in LOTR... ^_^
Snakefist30  +   1544d ago
