I’m still playing Skyrim, continuing to build a character specializing in stealth. My new character is at Level 41 now with skill levels over 80 in combat with one-handed weapons, light armor, stealth, and lockpicking.
The subplots that are available to me with this character are quite different from those available to my fighter character, so much so that’s almost a completely different and much more difficult game. It’s made even more difficult because I upped the difficulty level.
My fighter character hit a sort of sweet spot at a character level in the upper twenties or lower thirties. After the game was quite easy. I think I’ve just now reached that point with my thief/rogue character in the lower 40s.
I’m actually becoming kind of antsy to cut to the end of the game so I can re-start as a magic user which I anticipate will be much, much more difficult. I just don’t see how the spells that are available are powerful enough to deal with the situations I’ll face.
