Hah, yeah. Can't help tanking in any game. Even when I'm solo I'm still the tank.
The 100 perk is pretty awesome, just put up shield and hit sprint and everything in your path goes flying around like bowling pins, and they stay down for a long time. It makes unrelenting force look like a sneeze.

Hahaha, I haven't used a shield yet. Since level 1 I've been rolling Healing/flame/frost spell in left hand, sword in right.

I'm liking the dual flames enough that my next character is going to be a fire mage named Dhalsim.

My roommate is probably getting sick of hearing me shout "HADOKEN, BITCH" whenever I snipe someone with a fireball, though.

100 Blacksmithing is awesome :D

Full set of Dragonbone plate upgraded to Legendary quality? Check.
Paired Glass Swords also upgraded to Legendary? Check.
Everything exploding the moment I so much as look at it and doing barely any damage to me? Check

:D

Though I do find it amusing that smithing seems to be almost a better 'dps' talent than anything from the one handed tree, oh they're nice (especially the decap. chance) but the benefit I got from smithing is insane, so much armour and damage and far far superior to anything I've picked up so far from quests or that has dropped from mobs/chests.

Is there a level cap? How many points in the various constellations do you have to distribute? (I saw a very brief youtube video of it, but missed any mention of how many you could actually dish out.) When you say 100 smithing, is that in one of those constellations, or is it a skill? (or are the constellations representative of skills and your level therein?)

... is there a perk calculator? :D I shall go google.

There is no hard cap, although people estimate that 75ish is where skill gain is so slow that you're unlikely to get higher. There is also effectively a cap once you have every skill at 100, since you can't get further skills then, which means you can't level. I believe that happens at 80.

Smithing is one of the skills you can level, just like archery or destruction. The constellations are the talent trees mapping out what perks you can take in each skill - there's one for each skill.

Shouldn't it be "YOGA FIRE" & "YOGA FLAME"?

Once I make Dhalsim, yeah. Until then, everything is hadoken.

Bugfix for Esbern

If you get the bug where once you meet him the voice files don't play and he won't open the door, try this.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aprgHnjUK5U

Worked perfectly for me and as simple as 'copy paste' once you download it. Also, I scanned the file with Malwarebytes and no problems were detected, for those who worry about that sort of thing (like me).

So I thought I was the only one having this issue, but apparently it's happening on everything but PC.

Apparently, the larger your save file is, the sooner you'll start getting stuttering and insane, game-breaking lag (or freezes). My save file is at 12mb already, and I've got about an hour before it gets completely unplayable once I load the file and sit down to play.

Anyone else having this issue here?

No lag issues so far but I'm not sure the size of my save file. I do have about 40 hours into it at this point though.

Well, not entirely true about no lag. The only time I encounter some "lag" is any time I have to open the UI for dialogue or a vendor. Scrolling through the options gets all chunky and sometimes when I click an option, it actually clicks something else. Even better is when I scroll down to "Misc" to try to sell shit from there, it ends up just closing out the dialogue completely and I retry and it happens 4 more times. If there is one thing to hate on about this game, it is the shit ass UI. Navigating the perks is a frustrating endeavor.

I'm loving the Conjuror Tree. Dual Wielding bound blades is great, and I've added some Alteration for mage armor. Summoning zombies and my wolf familiar is also great fun. I guess its something of a Warlock spec. I had no idea I would end up with this playstyle when I started, and I see that as a huge triumph for the game designers.
