The Bedlam and Sweep quests are more "fun" than the others, IMO.

I have 3 quests for Windhelm left and 3 quests for Solitude left. Then I can focus on Brotherhood quests.
Ah well maybe I will have to finish them.

There is also a side quest, where if you do 125 jobs between Delvin and Vex you get a Master chest in teh cistern where evryone pays homage to you by donating loot.

Any good? Available for PS3? I haven't heard of it. But then again, I let my Game Informer expire so I'm not exactly in the loop.!

Yeah. I am liking it. I am seeing a lot of Skyrim similarities because of the Bethesda correlation but, otherwise it is very engaging.

I ave played the entire elderscrolls lot. I have to say that skyrim is by far the best. My brother let me barrow it for 2 days and I may have taken maybe 2 hours of a break in that time.

I joined the thieves guild, and DB. I played as an archer/hunter/thief. Was amazing, The dragons giants and mammoths constantly on top of you do take away from the experence until you get tough enough to kill them fairly easily.

I recently started a new character build that is by far the most fun I've played yet. With the dawnguard expansion and the hearthfire expansion, a whole new level of awesomeness is added. Though they're not entirely necessary for this build to be awesome, they definitely enhance it a lot.

Basically I'm playing a fear-throwing, fire-slinging, necromancer vampire. Man this build is fun.

I am level 30 something and so far have put all my points into illusion, conjuration, destruction, and restoration. Once I hit all the perks I want from those trees, I'll probably start adding to enchanting (or maybe speech). But I won't get there until I'm at level 44.

There is some nice synergy in the perks I chose. The Aspect of Terror perk in Illusion gives +10 damage to all fire spells, combining this with Augmented Flames and Intense Flames makes fire the obvious choice for destruction. Also, as a vampire, the Necromage restoration perk makes everything you cast on yourself more effective as you are considered undead.

At this point I walk into a dungeon, summon something, cast fear on the closest guy, and hang back as my summoned minion goes to hunt him down. This usually alerts more enemies and they all start going into attack mode. Casting fear when things get too hot until my summoned creature dies, then I start raising the dead to fight. If there are enough dead guys and a hard boss, I use the ritual stone to raise every dead creature in the dungeon and it's basically a bloodbath. Sometimes I'll use frenzy on a group of enemies and laugh while they kill themselves. Transforming into a vampire lord is cool but unnecessary as the perks don't translate over to when you're not a vampire lord. It's helpful though when you have to face a really strong guy by yourself and your summoned or raised creatures can't stand up to him. It's utter mayhem and I'm the orchestrator of it all. FUN!

EDIT: I'm playing this guy on master level difficulty and having no problem whatsoever. He's a dark-elf beast.
