Sorry, but I choose to level my character organicly. I don't like to "cheat" or "glitch". I much much rather earn my skills. It completly ruins the game for me to do things like this. It's like people who search MW maps for hours just to find a spot where they can glitch and go 43-2. I mean, who cares about winning or the team. I play games the way it was meant to be played. All the "glitchers" can have their fun. It's not fun to me at all.
Indeed , again if people are going to bother with that crap , just use the console already to give yourself xp
I disagree. It's not glitching or cheating, it's just a few tips on methods on how to do things that will help improve your skills. The one "glitch" is repeatedly talking to that fellow in Riften to improve your speechcraft, but that's about it. All in all, people are going to play the way they want to in the end. Some may find this guide helpful, and others might just agree with you. @Baka-akaB, it may come as a surprise to you, but not everyone plays on a PC or Mac, so console commands aren't available.
It's not glitching or cheating to exploit the games mistakes. You think sneaking into the wall for an hour is not cheating? When regular players have to earn their sneak while playing. Organically. You can do whatever you want. If Xmas hadn't of passed yet, I would buy you a Game Genie. Then You can "not cheat" all you want. Have a blast. Would you straight out buy skill points for money? Cause I think ya would. Gaming is an experience. I try to experience it the way the Devs intended. Instead of looking for their mistakes to exploit them to better my character without acctually working for it. But then again, thats not cheating. LOL
You have your opinion, I have mine. Doesn't mean you have to criticize me for it or make snide remarks. The fact of the matter is, I thought this guide to have some helpful ways to quickly gain skill points. I never said I followed it. Personally, I gain my sneak skill through moving stealthily through caverns and ruins. I gain my archery skill through long distance kills, as well as my one-handed through close combat. I play games the way they're "meant" to be played, as you put it. Doesn't mean I don't appreciate the odd tip now and again.
I've done the power leveling tricks (by the way, this is old news) and I find that it's a mixed blessing depending on your character type and gear. For example, I power leveled a destruction mage and the game was awful. Spells took far too long to kill anything until I got the Adept spells at least and forget it if I was forced into melee combat. I power leveled a stealth character, and the game wasn't bad actually. My only problem was with any allies I had with me, and I had insufficient gear in the rare cases I was detected. But I found a new Assassin build and let me tell you that if you get the Blade of Woe, power leveling will break the game for you. Since the Blade of Woe's enchantments get stronger as you level up, the game becomes one where you can one hit kill anything except dragons and dragon priests even with a base level of the weapon. Fully upgraded and you're doing 900+ damage with the Backstab and Assassin's Blade perks and the Shrouded Gloves armor. I semi-power leveled my current Paladin class character (a build I seem to have invented since I haven't seen anyone anywhere mention anything close to it. Basically it's your Heavy Armor wearing, shield and sword specializing, Restoration/Alteration tank class made better if you use a Breton for it's innate magic resistance and the fact that they are the best defensive race in the game) up to about level 6 for some early perks and have found that I can crush most enemies pretty easily with basic weapons, but it's not a total walk through the park, and you actually seem to level up quicker if you play the game normally than if you power level. I also found that, if you're only power-leveling for perks, then Sneak levels you up the fastest. Find an immortal person and sneak attack them repeatedly and watch the levels rise fast.
Life's too short for crap like this, I rather just play the game.
Again, if you don't like the tips, no one is forcing you to use them.
Don't mind the tips, I just won't use them as I rather play the game as intended.
