Question about the Nightingale armor, you can't get it up to Epic or Legendary?


I'm 94 in smith just made a legendary Ebony bow & Mace why can't I upgrade light armor?
you have to increase your light armor skill perks which will take about 4 perks to complete that side

Yea this is a huge find for an early character....I will have to remember it when I make my next one. As far as increasing carry weight, you have to increase your stamina. (also there are potions you can use, but it only lasts 300 seconds....sometimes its just enough to allow you to fast travel to where you need to go to unload).

sorry some of these are easy enough for most to know just from playing, but also some great tips for new players
***SPOILERS INSIDE***
Enjoy!

1) After you add something to the favorites menu, press up on the d-pad to open the favorites menu. Highlight something in there, and hold left or right on the d-pad. Now you can simply press left or right on the d-pad and equip it without going into the favorites menu

2) If you tell your follower to pick something up by talking to them and saying “I need you to do something” this doesn’t count against their weight limit. So if you tell them to pick something up in this way, they can carry as much as you want. Pretty useful in the dwemer ruins as all that stuff is very heavy

3) By doing the thieves guild quest line, you recover the skeleton key. You are supposed to turn it in at the end of the quest, but you don’t get much for actually turning it in. so you can smply keep the skeleton key and can get into those pesky master chests with no problems

4) By increasing stamina, you increase the amount of weight you can carry

5) The initial choice at the beginning of the game about who to follow is trivial and doesn’t really matter

6) Dragons will only land if there is a spot big enough for them to land

7) There are carriages outside of the major cities that can take you to another major city. So if you are trying to go to a major city that you haven’t discovered yet, you can use the carriage and save yourself the 20 minutes of walking

8) You can get a dog follower from the guy outside of markarth

9) The forsworn conspiracy quest in markarth is very, very buggy. So make an extra save before getting too far into the quest because you might need to go back to it due a bug

10) If you train from somebody, you can pick pocket your money back

11) After you do the grey beards quest to return the horn, you can talk to them again and they will tell you the location of word walls

12) The best source of ebony that I’ve found is the gloombound mines, which are located southeast of windhelm

13) Putting baskets on people’s heads breaks their line of sight, allowing you to steal right in front of them without getting caught. This is somewhat cheap, but it’s a good way to get potions from shopkeepers

14) To get better spells, you have to level up that specific spell tree. For example, to get better conjuration spells, you have to level conjuration up to like level 40 to get the next set of spells. Once you reach level 40 in conjuration the people who sell
conjuration spells will magically get better spells to buy.

15) If you use a dragon shout inside of a major town, you will usually get a message from the courier that tells you the location of another word wall

16) You can become a werewolf by doing the companions quest line

17) If people respond to you by saying ‘you look ill’ or something along those lines, open the menu by pressing circle, choose magic, and go down to the bottom to ‘active effects’. This will tell you if you have a disease.

18) Don’t k!ll chickens

19) Try to buy a house as soon as you can. Buying a house gives you an empty chest (that you own) which can store all your stuff. If you just put stuff in random cupboards and things like that, your stuff could disappear

20) While in 3rd person mode, you can hold the right stick down, and adjust the zoom by using the left stick

21) Conjured weapons (bound sword, bound bow, etc.) are affected by the conjured perk tree AND the specific weapon tree. For example, the bound sword is affected by the conjuration perk tree AND the 1 handed weapons perk tree

22) Your followers can die and here is how it works. If a follower drops to one knee, that means their health has reached zero. While they are on one knee, all enemies will stop attacking them and will come after you. If an enemy tries to attack you, they could hit the follower by mistake which will k!ll them (if they are on one knee). If the follower doesn’t get hit for a few seconds while on one knee, they will get back no problem. You can also k!ll a follower if you hit them while they are on one knee

23) Doing the thieves guild quest line will give you a few vendors who will buy stolen items

24) Don’t sell enchanted weapons and armor. Take them to enchantment table and choose disenchant. This destroys the enchanted item, but it lets you learn that spell so you can enchant things with that spell.

25) A soul gem has a soul in it if there is something in parenthesis next to that item in your inventory. It will say something like (common) or (petty) etc. meaning that soul gem has a soul in it

26) Making iron daggers is a good way to grind your blacksmith skill up as they are cheap. You can also use these daggers at an enchantment table to grind your enchantment skill (and this is also an easy way to make money)

27) After you buy a house, talk to the steward again to purchase stuff for your house (spare rooms, tables, etc.)

28) (posted by Hanzou74) Do the quest to gather all the barenziah stones as soon as you can. The perk it gives you, Prowler's profit, *greatly* increases the amount of gems you find. I just found 93 in one dungeon crawl, many of them flawless. Sell em,
keep em, use em for quests or crafting.

29) (posted by V_V_L_B) the transmute spell is an easy way to make money, as it turns iron to silver, and silver to gold

30) If you hold down X on an item, you can move it around without adding it to your inventory. This is useful for stealing certain items, as you can simply move it to a place where nobody can see, and steal it there without getting caught

31) You need the amulet of mara to marry somebody. To get it you need to find the ‘monk’ at the inn in Rifton. If he is not there he is in the temple of mara (I think this is the name of the temple, it is also in Riton) Once you have the amulet (and are wearing it), you can talk to an NPC and they will say something about the amulet

32) If you own a horse, you can fast travel while riding it even when you are over burdened

33) (posted by TrenchcoatFlash) it is easy to tell which draugers will attack you because they will be wearing clothes or armor.

34) (posted by TrenchcoatFlash) your sneak skill increases by large amounts when you sneak critical hit successfully. Draugers are great for this

35) (posted by Iwantedzero) Using soul gems to recharge magic weapons increases your enchanting.

36) (posted by Iwantedzero) A good way to get arrows early on is to find soldiers training with a bow and arrow, and simply take the arrows they shoot into the target

37) (posted by 3_iverson_3) if you acciently or unknowingly capture a soul that is inadequate to the sould gem it’s in (petty sould in common soul gem, etc.) you can simply drop that gem from you inventory to make it an empty soul gem again

38) (posted by random_man9119) arrows don’t weight anything, so you might as well keep them in the inventory because it isn’t weighing you down

39) (posted by Beck225) if you have a follower that can train you, you can take your money back after training with them by talking to them, choosing ‘I need to trade items with you’ and simply taking your gold back

40) (posted by WolfGrey) Wards need to be cast before the spell or whatever hits you, as long you are using the correct ward

41) (posted by WolfGrey) if you get the perk for bound weapons to steal souls, it will steal souls from ALL enemies it k!lls (as long as you k!ll the enemy with the bound weapon)

42) (posted by klerpizza) Giants won’t attack you until provoked

43) (posted by WolfGrey) if you conjure a flame familiar and have it explode, people standing nearby won’t attack you

44) (posted by Beck225) When you go to mine something, you can equip the pickaxe and simply ‘attack’ the ore by hitting R1 (and L1 if you have two pickaxes equipped). This is much faster

45) (posted by SamHayden) when you level up and you choose either health, magic, or stamina, if you are low on health this will instantly give you full health. You can also save these (by not going into the leveling up screen) and use it later for when you
are f!ghting an enemy and about to die. Simply go to the leveling up screen, choose one of the three you want to level up, and it will give you full health

46) (posted by boxer_shanx)
a. the muffle spell can be spammed to raise your illusion (even when an enemy isn’t nearby)

b. if you give your companion a torch, they will use it at night

c. your horse can climb mountains that you can’t on foot

d. the lover stone improves all skill 15% faster. The best for fast leveling multiple skills

e. if a mage has a ward to block damage, shoot a fireball at the ground near their feet and it will do full damage

47) (posted by syetactic) you can get companions to unlock master chests using only 1 lockpick

48) (posted by Alzine)
a. You can use arrows to distract the enemy when hidden

b. You can eat ingredients to discover their first use in alchemy

c. Try to read the books, some give you quests or level you up, or simply tell you things to watch out for that you might not have known

d. If you do missions for people, you often ‘befriend’ them, allowing you take their things without it being considered stealing

e. Don’t forget to look underwater, sometimes there are chests underwater

f. Very few creatures will follow you or attack you when you are in water, even if you are f!ghting them they will stop when you go into water

I remember wondering the same thing early on, but after trying to no avail I just pickpocketed a Skyforged greatsword from one the Companions. There's no advantage of using the Skyforge, only the smith Eorlund Gray-mane can create Skyforge steel.

In response to the guy that just copy and pasted all that. What you did was fine, but let new players explore some on their own. Don't need to know every tip and trick of the game especially in one post. Let them search around some and ask. That's what keeps this thread alive.

edit: and my textures were fu*king up last night... fell under the map
