We ran a vet Wayrest Sewers pledge yesterday (which we had kept in our quests for a week or more, just ’cause) and got a Gold Key. Since we were so close to VR6, we decided to wait to open the chest until we leveled up. And good thing too! Check out the haul: Now […]
Read More Valkyn Skoria’s Pauldrons, yes.
The Grayest Mouser— He’s working the new Orc (medium chest, hands, waist and legs) and Redguard (light feet—the most awesome, swashbuckling, fold-over boots ever!) designs that dropped with Update 6. Finished out with a light Daedric head and medium Imperial shoulders. Double Daedric daggers for the dual-wield bar, Altmer bow on his second. The inestimable […]

I changed my mind and went for a big change at level 42. It was all about the hat. I found a drop set item (the medium armor helm from the Stygian set) that looked just like the Ancient Nord helm from Skyrim. And I got all excited thinking (mistakenly, as it turns out) that […]

Thessaly’s look has really evolved, especially in the past few months since the dye stations were added in Update 3, which increased my ability to customize her dramatically. I’ve taken great pleasure in finding unexpected or striking color palettes to go with interesting combinations of racial motifs in the armor and weapons themselves. Hopefully all […]
Read More Evolution of a tank, part deux: Dye, scum!
One of my favorite things has always been finding (and later—with a good crafter—making) new armor sets, and shaping my character’s appearance that way. Thessaly has undergone quite a bit of evolution, and I’ve really enjoyed finding unexpected ways to combine racial motifs in her weapons and armor. It’s hard at first, when you really […]

New character for the 3rd (and final) beta weekend! Decided to play a boy, and a Dragonknight—last class I had not as of yet tried out. Going for the two-handed, tank-y build. So I started out making the character with the idea of a portly knight—sort of like Sir John Falstaff’s younger, slightly-in-better-shape brother. Then when […]
Read More Vladimir Estragon, Dragonknight
So I made this here heavy armor Nord-style helm. I was still figuring out the different parts of crafting and what fell into which skill line. FYI, Blacksmithing? All heavy armor. But I prefer the medium armor version. Still with Nord horns, dovahkiin-style, but made from leather. Now I have mostly medium armor so am […]
Read More On helms, and crafting
Rahgot, to be specific, from Forelhost. Got his Dragon Priest Staff too, yay Wall of Fire! It also inspired us to actually figure out the whole Wooden Mask / Labyrinthian thing; very obtuse and simultaneously ridiculously simple: put on the mask in the room where you find it (i.e. do what the bloody note says.) […]
Read More Looking fierce in a Dragon Priest mask
Full set (armor, gauntlets, boots) looted from the Dragon Cultist ghosts in Forelhost. I also collected their helmets, though here I am already wearing the Ancient Helmet of the Unburned, from Labyrinthian.
