About the stupid levelled monsters stuff.
My character is a fairly straight up direction-of-least-resistance character, using the tools for the job: big swords and heavy armor, Blade at 85, supplmeneted by magic for healing and cool tricks. About as hardened a warrior as you’re going to get at this level, unless you completely avoid doing anything levelworthy except hit things.
But of course I left the main quest until reaching level 20, and it’s obviously completely impossible. I get to the part where you have to hack your way through Kvatch. I can’t deal with the 8 clannfears and 4(?) atronachs simultanously, even with potions. It’s a constant clanging of hits striking me from every angle, until I am dead, and they deal me out in a matter of seconds. I’ve even nudged the difficultly left an inch, but can’t yet bring myself to go further with that business.
So, am I basically doomed without leaving my difficultly level permanently at “diddums”? Gimped, was the phrase. And to think I thought you were all being whinging pussies. But seriously, if a warrior with heavy armor and near-maxed relevant skills gets pissed on like this, what the hell are you supposed to do?
