Hi Pokey. Thanks! No, I haven't talked to her yet. I guess I'll try again tomorrow. Did you wait for her near the yard or follow her from her house?

Right after I talked to her, she started walking around the town. I followed her till she started sneaking and then hid by the wall in the bushes, where I could see the opening. I think you need to try later than you did.

Help! I'm lost in Glademist Cave! I've completed all the Fighters Guild quests & got promoted to champion. Then Oreyn told me to go to Glademist & kidnap Ajum Kajin. I've been searching the cave for a couple of days now & I can't find a way to the area he's in. I can see a passage to the east, but I can't find any way to get to it. It doesn't help that I can't find any torches, so I'm wandering around in the dark! frown

Any ideas?
Thanks,
Barb

Barb, I haven't gotten to that, yet, but one thing I discovered about the caves is that if on the map it looks like there is someplace I should be able to go and I can't find it, it usually means it is on a higher or lower level than what I am on. Look for a way up or down. Sometimes it's difficult to see on the maps.

Do you have the nighteye spell or potion? That would make it easier on you.

This is just a tip for everyone looking for torches. If you have joined the Mage's Guild, get yourself to one of the Enchanting Alters in the Arcane University and Enchant any item that is wearable with the "Night Eye" spell (as long as you have some kind of LEARNED Night Eye spell in your magic menu). It will be a constant effect when your done. Wearable items never have to be recharged either. I enchanted a pair of greaves that I can take off and on. You'll never need another torch! I did the same thing when I played MW. One of the best and easiest enchantments you can get, with a cost of only 100 gold.

I'm in the ruins looking for the mage sent to spy on the necromancers. There are cages over the Varla stones. Where is the stupid switch to raise the cages? Can't find it anywhere. I've even gone swimming looking for it! Help!

And a question for everyone:

Where do you live? In Oblivion, I mean. smile
I'm house shopping. Where do you suggest buying a house?
The first house I bought was the shack in the Imperial City. Cheap and central to the main shops. I also have a mansion in Anvil and a place in Leyawiin.

The things to raise the cages around Varla stones are usually blocks that you push in with a bright blue stone in the center. They can be in different rooms, and sometimes on a level overlooking the area with the Varla stone.

Crashing through with sword swinging is a perfectly legit method of exploration. As is walking around with an arsenal of spells at the ready. smile I like slowly stalking through a dungeon, watching for the slightest movement then shoot to kill.

Tamia, I think the best house for the money is the lovely mansion in Anvil - 5,000 gold and no need to furnish. The basement is a little creepy, though.

Does anyone else have the problem of trying to decide whether they want to use a sword or a bow? I'm a battlemage and have to use weapons, but since I can't make up my mind I'm carrying a couple of each, which is really weighing me down. Maybe I need to buy a house to store stuff in.

Buying a house for storage is a good idea, but upping your strength is also an option. wink

I use both a sword and bow, with the bow being my assassin's weapon of choice. Instead of a longsword I carry a deadric shortsword with an enchantment on it - it weighs far, far less than the equivalent longsword and packs almost as much wallop.

Ok, found the buttons. Thanks! smile New problem. Is there a way to get rid of the vampire hunters in the mage quest without killing them? I just want them to leave town, but they won't even when I kill the vampires.

There seems to be a bug with that quest. I first informed the vampire hunters where the vampires where hiding. If you wait 3 days the hunters will attack the vampire haven, but I single handed wiped out the vampires which seems to have caused a bug since the hunters never understood that the vampires where all extinct, that left me no other choice than to kill the hunters too.

Huh. When I played, I killed the vampires and collected all their vampire dust. I think there were seven vampires, so I got seven pieces of vampire dust. When I showed all the dust to the hunters, they left after complaining about how I should have left things to the professionals.

Tamia - this game appears to work differenly for everyone.

I sneaked after the Boss Vampire Hunter as he knew the way to the cave and I didn't. Hung back in sneak mode and followed all three through the cave. They rounded a corner and there was quite a ding-dong going on. When all was quiet I crept round the corner to discover all the hunters had been dispatched. There were also a couple of vampires lying around.

I continued on until the game told me the last of the vampires were dead - then I went outside and fast travelled back to report.

Am making a habit of calling at a town which has a temple near an entrance to get myself cleansed before reporting.

Tomorrow I start the double quest for the Mage Guild to recover the helmet and the amulet. Know where the helmet is, <when I find the fort> but haven't a clue where the amulet might be.

Have started finding the odd varia stone which come in handy.

Good night everyone, happy gaming.

Alice

I'm not going to install the Beta patch. They suggest not doing it if your able to play the game without much difficulty. Think I read that when they come out with the finished patch, people may have to reinstall the game. If that's the case I won't be patching the game at all this time around. I may have a few glitches here and there, but nothing serious enough to stop my progress (yet).

I did what the SG suggested and told the hunters where to find the vampires. It took them another day to actually decide to get to that cave. A couple of hours later (game time) I am told all the vampire hunters are dead. I went to the cave and killed the rest of the vampires. They weren't terribly good hunters...

The other method the SG suggested is to show them vampire dust from the cave. You only need one in your inventory for it to work.
