For some reason, I love Morrowind but can't play it, and hate Oblivion but it's more accessible to me.

>> No.8423123

It just isn't as sugarcoated as in other games.

>> No.8423141

I love both, but tried to play Morrowind the other day, and couldn't. Got past Fargoth (would someone post that image where the guy makes a guy that looks exactly like Fargoth and BECOMES Fargoth?) and then felt...nothing.

>> No.8423152

does anyone have a list of must have mods for morrowind?

>> No.8423157

Morrowind requires at least 5 levels before the game becomes "playable" for me. Meaning, I can cast spells that can kill something and it doesn't take a full magic bar, or I can actually hit things in melee combat. Oblivion was kind of the opposite, early on, it's like "Fuck yeah this is awesome, I love the combat, stealth requires you to actually sneak instead of just go upstairs where nobody's looking!" but then later on it's "WHY DOES EVERYTHING TAKE SO LONG TO KILL?" because of level scaling.

Hand to hand in Oblivion was awesome.

You basically need the improved hand to hand mod for it to be even slightly feasible in Morrowind. Especially since most creatures even rats have over 300 fatigue, compared to the 100 or so that an NPC will have.

This one is actually usefull too, yeah.

>> No.8423934

Blind affects their to-hit rolls, similar to sanctuary.
Drain/Damage attribute enchants are most useful od daggers and tantos, as you don't have to make full swings for max damage, just stabstabstabstabstab. This allows you to fight much stronger opponents while still in the lows.
Paralysis one give you the luxury of having your opponent immobilized for as long as you hit him, which is way longer than you could manage with spells.

Guy working on the mod here.

What difficulty would you like this quest to be? I have some ideas but then I realized they'd be way too difficult for low level characters, or melee characters in general. I can tone it down some.

>If you're low on fatigue,

Huh? sounds like you didn't train your weapon skill or agility enough.
>Your spell failure chance greatly increases
Spell failure also depends on how high level spells we're talking. And general consensus has been that high level spells<Low level spell spam.
>dodge rates go down,
Sorry, but I've never really noticed this all that much. Guess it's because I'm an agility-whore.
>etc. Fatigue affects everything.
About in the same way luck does, then. Wich is not all that much.

>> No.8424232

Doesn't really need durability. I enchanted an amulet with fortify spear, 24 points (Which puts me at 70) and that spear can kill things in two hits. I'm currently doing the bloodmoon storyline, because at the end you get the Huntsman's spear, best spear in the game.

>> No.8424253

Only if you pick the right aspect. Not that I've ever found a reason not to, though.

>> No.8424254

You've obviously not played Morrowind more than one time. Start a new character with any weapon as a major skill, find a weapon of that type, jump around until you have no fatigue and go try to hit any NPC.

>> No.8424283

I always wanted to get back into morrowind but could never pick what class I wanted.

>> No.8424288


Fatigue, like every other stat, greatly affects all you do at the beginning of the game. Once you're a level 20+ demigod with a pile of alchemy potions, of course you stop worrying about stat influence on you, because shit dies fast regardless of them.

>> No.8424314

Actually, I've played fighter characters a-plenty.
Yes, you'll not hit a lot of opponents at low levels, but that's the goddamn standard. Once your weapon skill hits 60+ (wich is relatively quickly if you focus on it) those problems are over.

>> No.8424343

Just make a class, pick skills you like.

>> No.8424355


Well, I looked it up. Holy shit, that is a hell of a beast. Never played Bloodmoon past that werewolf attack on that fort, so didn't know of it. Guess now I'll have to try and get my hands on it.

So far, I'm doing rather fine with my Bound Spear, that I made permanent via some kind of repair glitch. It somehow granted me 10 extra spear skill regardless of whether it is equipped or not, and 10 when I equip it. So... that's 20 spear skill.

So it turns out two of my major ideas for this mod, aren't going to work. 1: I can't start the player above ground, when you use a door and 2: If you fall into nothingness, you just re appear on solid ground. Fuck this is going to take longer than I had hoped.

>> No.8424559

I must have been the only person in the world who took the Amulet of Strength, mostly because I'd maxed out Medium Armour, Heavy Armour, Long Blade, Axe, Blunt Weapon, Marksman and Armorer on my first character, and I needed the carrying capacity more than another weapon type to kill with.

>Hand-to-hand is terrible.
Tell me about it. I just leveled a Nord Monk specializing in ONLY this until I hit 100 Hand-to-hand. At this point I promptly started leveling Blunt Weapon. Likewise, I used Unarmored until I hit 100 with that. He's at 50 now, I just completed the main quest, and have begun slightly leveling light and medium armor. It's been an interesting experience though, very different from my usual acrobatics/short blade/light armor steal-everything-that-is-stealable character archetype.
