Hey yo what up!

Just bought Oblivion, and walking around (getting attacked by everything), I seem to die alot. Maybe I didn't make that clear enough - ALOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it just me, or does everyone start out this way? How can I improve my killing skills? :thumbsup:

Well, describe what 'everything' is.

If you're getting attacked by monsters, then that's normal. However, if you are constantly getting attacked by people, you may be doing something wrong. People don't like it that much if you try to talk to them with a weapon drawn, and make sure that when your picking up something, that the hand is that tannish color because if the hand (or any other icon that pops up in your crosshairs) is red, it means that you are either tresspassing or stealing something and are breaking the law and will have the guards all over you really fast.

*edit* also, the same thing goes for if you attack everything. Unless a quest is telling you to go after a specific person, you mainly don't want to attack somebody unless they're attacking you first.

Oblivion is a very realistic game. Not many people in the real world would like it if you talked to them with a weapon out, nor would they like it if you stole their stuff. Also, be careful not to attack NPC's unless you have to. If you do, you'll have the entire town after you before you realize it.

I'll be more specific - those bandits on the road. Normal people (like in the towns) are okay. I got killed by a dog yesterday (Wolf). I suck!

Up if you're really fed up with it. Press "~" and type in tgm (ToggleGodMode) and if you just want one really annoiyng enemy dead "~" click the enemy and type kill. :D

Those are cheats and such if you want to use.

Oh,

You don't have to use god mode, somewhere in the settings, there is a difficulty slider that will raise or lower the levels of everything else in the game which when lowered, can make things die in like two or three hits. Just be careful though, because the downside to that is that everything would get their level lowered making an accidental strike on a friend potentially fatal.

Very few characters can do fine in the wilderness in the beginning of the game unless you really know what your are doing. You don't have the equipment, skills and spells to do it.

You should Fast Travel to a city and join a guild. As a rouge join the Thieve's Guild (steal something and you'll get an invitation in your sleep). There you can train up your sneak and lock pick skills, buy lock picks (important for sneaky characters) and steal some money. You also get access to fencers. As a fighter join the Fighter's Guild, where you'll get your skills trained up and some decent equipment, plus a copule of easy quests to start you off. As a mage you'll want to join the Mage's Guild and work your way into the arcane university, where you'll be able to make your own spells.

Also, even though heading headlong into the mainquest isn't the best of ideas you might want to take it so far as to get the Amulet of Kings to Jauffry at Weynon Priory, there you'll get some stuff to get you started and also a guy there will give you a horse, which defiantly help getting through the wilderness.

I wont try to spoil the story here, but a little after you start the main quest, you have to lead a guy called Martin back to an area. I wont spoil the why and the where, but being a special character, he'll only get knocked out when his health drops and wont die while he is following you around.

You can use him to your advantage and go through hard areas, even having him help you kill a really hard monster that is part of the main quest later in the game.

Martin won't die, the story centers around him after all. But...most of the people that join you in the main quest can be killed. Those that can't just become unconscious instead of dying.
