Gamingheap Special - Endeavours In Oblivion - PS3 (Part 12)

Gamingheap Special - Endeavours In Oblivion - PS3


I really wasn't expecting this mini-series (turned long-series!) to go on for this long, but I'm no where near finished with this game!

I finally finished the main-quest storyline for the Shivering Isles expansion pack. I'm going to return to finish the SI side-quests in the settlements after I finish the Knights Of Nine plug-in. In the end, I was forced to wipe out the "Forces Of Order" from the Shivering Isles as they threatened to take over the Isles themselves. They look like armoured soldiers covered in blocks of ice and they wield longswords worth 1.2k! They're easy to defeat as well so all the better! They're also led by their leader, Jyggalag and an unexpected turn of events occurs at the end (which I won't give away, don't worry). Anyway, Jyggalag was supposed to be hard, but he lasted no more than 1 minute against my Perfect Madness Sword and Perfect Madness full armour set (fully enchanted). I managed to reach level 27 today as well after leveling up my Light Armour skill to 51. This is hard as i'm taking a lot of damage, even with the best set of Light Armour, Amber Armour. At the moment it only gives half the defense of my fully enchanted Madness Armour.

I have gained tonnes of unique weapons and armour from the SI expansion as well and it's all on display in my house, Rosethorn Hall. Best of all, I also made my first 100k today selling the swords from the Order Soldiers. I'm now concentrating only on leveling up my Magic skills and my Light Armour and perhaps even Marksman skills. Oh', and I almost forgot, I'm a master Armourer meaning my repair hammers last forever and I only ever need to hold onto one.

I still haven't beat the Shivering Isles expansion. I'm stuck on this quest where I have to drink that stuff and go into that cave to get the chalice. I can't seem to make it or find any more of that stuff in time. How did you get past it?

I was extremely over-leveled (level 25) with the best in-game armour (Perfect Madness or Daedric) and 1h sword (Umbra), and I have 100 Strength which bolstered my attacks against the Elytra in the caverns. I really suggest upping your strength or getting Umbra from Vindasel. That stuff you have to drink only drops from the Elytra that are green and glowing, and it's fairly rare. Make sure you have a load of potions or a practical health-restore spell as well. Hope that helped ;)

Sigh, you're making me want to play again. You actually make me want to take screenshots of everything I have on display in my skingrad house..
Shivering isles was the best part to oblivion imo :D
