    I would pay hundreds of dollars to wipe my memory of this game so I could play it for the first time again.

  • E W

  • Julian de Zeeuw

  • Mithrandir

    When you have 500+ hours in Skyrim, but still watching this video

  • Advopar

    You can also go anywhere where guards are training their archery skills to get infinite steel arrows legally.

    who is still a skyrim noob in 2016?

    Some things that I'd like to add that I personally find really helpful to everybody.- In my opinion the Bretons are the best race for starting mages, they are naturally gifted in mage skills and their Dragon Skin ability lets you absorb 50% of incoming hostile magic, usefull for fighting mages. Orcs make the best race for starting warriors because of their starting skills and their berserk ability and imo Dark Elves make the best race for starting rogues. - In terms of standing stones, the Atronach Stone is really the most usefull in any situation. The 50% spell absorption and can be stacked with the Breton's dragon skin ability or on its own. The 50 extra magika is useful for early game and if you're not a High Elf (fuck the Thalmor) and the debuff for spell regeneration can be easily countered with perks or items. Plus, dragons can't hurt you because their breaths are "hostile magic" ;))- Don't be a "jack of all trades" character. It will limit you on key perks that you'll miss out on if you don't have enough skill.- Find a trainer! You can find trainers for each of the minor skills that can take you up 5 levels at a time to a set level; Common trainers up to level 50, Expert to level 75 and Master to level 90. The last 10 need to be gained from leveling or skill books.- Don't fight the chicken

  • Jabba's Palace

    Im about to try my first ps3 game... Skyrim. As a new to evertthing i understood what he meant by sword

  • Jacob Barnfather

    Reminds me of the Linkthe1st days... These are the type of guides that made you, you... Keep it up Strife.

  • Harvey Chesterfield

    I suspect there's a more detailed magic video coming soon but for anyone interested in Destruction:Fire spells are the best for raw damage, giving a DOT and dealing bonus damage to any target already on fire.Frost spells slow and damage stamina, meaning heavy melee enemies will have a hard time catching and hitting you.Shock spells also deal damage to an enemy's magicka, crippling other spellcasters. Importantly: apprentice level shock spells (and higher) travel a lot faster than the others or arrows, making them significantly more accurate (especially against dragons).Finally, the more expensive destruction magic gets, the less efficient it is for the magicka cost. More advanced spells will offer extra benefits like AOE damage or a persistent damage field. They should only be used if you can get the extra value out of them or if you have enough magicka/cost reduction/magicka potions. Otherwise you'll find yourself running dry before your enemies are dead.Edit: Staggering giant enemies only works if you have the "Augmented X" perk for Frost, Fire or Shock. I was deep into the game before I turned dragons on so I didn't realise.

    William, this are the kinds of video I subscribed to you in first place. Not to discourage you from playthroughs and letsplays (they are fun), but this is broadcasting quality stuff :D

  • DeadKnight08

    OMG STEED STONE DOES THAT WTF?!?! Do you know how much wasted time I've spent going out and back into caves so I can take all the loot I can find and sell them?!?! Ugh anyways thx for the info this will help A TON

  • micronoid

    Some beginner tips I’d add:-Even though there are 18 skill trees you should really only be focusing on leveling up less than half that amount. Just so you’re not spreading your points too thinly. When you feel like you’ve leveled as far as you want in those chosen few skills only then move onto others.-Try to decide early on what type of weapons/armor/equipment you want to use. Doing this means you’ll know which ones you can sell or break down for enchanting, you’re not hoarding crap you don’t need, you’re making money and it keeps you focused on the style you want to play for proper leveling.-Get married and buy a house as soon as you can. I’d advice against having multiple places you call home. Keep all your shit in one place. Somewhere you can easily offload stuff, getting Breezehome in Whiterun is the go to option. Since you spend most of your time adventuring going for whats practical is better than whats aesthetically pleasing.

  • Rib

    All your skyrim videos make me want to hop on and play for 24hrs straight! Keep up the good work I love these guides :)

  • Svetlana Rodriguez

    You forgot the invisible chest in Dawnstar.

  • OpenWorldAddict

    Just to let people know, by completing the barrow first before going to Whiterun, you are actually skipping a scene that only occurs if you seen the Jarl before going to barrow. I actually recommend that you go out of your way to experience that scene in at least one playthrough.

  • Keyshell

    Nord or High Elf, huh? Bretons have always been the best in my opinion, regardless of if you're going to be a mage or not.

  • Alexander Chippel

    Something yo think about: If the golden dragon claw wasn't stolen, the entire main quest never would've happened. You never would've found the dragon stone, or learned Fus.

  • That Filthy Weeaboo

    Concerning the crossbow ammo, you can lift Dwarven bolts off of Dwarven constructs inside most Dwemer ruins.

  • Red Beard

    I think that the Breton is also a good choice due to the 25% magic resist.. combined with the Atranoch stone,, adds a 50% magic absorbtion, that's pretty good..IMO

  • Alimo Eskimo

    Also if you're a werewolf you don't get a rested bonus at all.

  • SlyBeast

    Love these Strife guides (and playthroughs) for Bethesda games. Nobody does it better. Your voice is right for it, the information is clear and concise, and the production value of the video is sky high.

  • Skyrim4ever gameplays and tutorials

    When you start off and when you escape Helgen and pick one of the 3 standing stones go to the nearest mine called Embershard mine for some nice starter stuf your welcome

  • Drawica Alter

    Crossbows ignore 50% of armor, not 50 points, but besides that, amazing guide.

  • Robert Rosenberger

    the conjured bow has the same base damage as a deadric bow, making it one of the best, and the spell tom ecan be aquired very early in the game. the spell will also give you unlimited deadric arrows. for you new players, you should look into that.

  • My Hentai Girl

    Went to Dragonborn DLC at lv1 isn't bad eitherYou have free good early weapon/armour A very strong follower SeroMallory often sell really good enchanted weapon/armour

  • Strange Bot

    You should do a Skyrim let's play, like you did with Oblivion!

  • Jermichael Richards

    You can also get a full set of Dwarven Armor for free in Markath if you're playing a Warrior build at the beginning.

  • The Traveler

    "Great advice for starting a new game in Skyrim!"Well... yeah!

  • Alexander The Great

    Lover Stone is the best, it makes all skills level up 15% faster.

  • Daniel Taylor

    Excuse me, but Nord and High Elf are the best races? I think you've forgotten that, while orcs don't have a passive ability, they also have an active ability that has the effect of bumping the difficulty slider down by 1-2 levels for 60 seconds. That may not be exactly what it says, but look at what the difficulty slider actually does, and you'll see that Berserker Rage is effectively what I just said.Rest of them are pretty crap tho, I'll give you that one.

  • BlackLaser

    one should always go with hadvar at the start... not Ralof.... cause free ingots (5xsteel and 5xIron) every other week^^

  • spasmasaurus

    The editing on this video is really good.

  • Drew

    If you need an amazing weapon to start out with the daedric bound weapons are better than anything you can get

  • Ed Muise

  • Blake Bauman

    This video is such high quality.

  • Marco Ramalho

  • Nubbinz

    "I have 999999 hours why did i wathc anyways!!111" You watched because even if you DO have Infinite hours you could've easily missed stuff.

  • Tankken

    Orc's daily is godly though, if you're going to be playing a warrior, in my experience he's been the best.


    What do I care? I can jump like hell and even breath underwater! 😁 Argonian hammer toter FTW!

  • Antonio Carbone

    I completed this game 3 times and I'm watching this...

  • Andrew Regalado

    looking forward to my first playthrough of skyrim.

  • Young Padawan

    Bretons are the best and also brothers and sisters to Nords. Bretons have permanent 25% magic resistance + awesome racial power dragonskin.

  • Julie Delagarza

    This was such a great tutorial. Thank you so much for taking the time and being such a good communicator.

  • VoidMaster405

    I can't even find out how to open the map :(

  • Jokerz X

    I usually just play as a dark elf I enjoy the look and lore plus the 50% fire damage resistance I love lol

  • grandmaster yoda

    Thank you i am not good at this game and this was very helpful

  • Haley Fortuno

    Nice guide for useful starter gear, but race and stone selection depend entirely on your play style. Those suggested in the video really aren't good all-around choices. High Elf isn't useful in the least if you find out you like heavy armor and 2-handed weapons. The Nord has Frost resist which is nice, but the Breton resists 50% of all magic damage, far outclassing the Nord. I actually love the Steed Stone, but the Lover's Stone with 10% boost to all skills may better benefit a new player that's still figuring out how they want to play. The Steed Stone is certainly not the best choice for all builds, as it is most useful for a heavy armor character.Personally, I suggest Kajiit for a well-rounded beginner race, especially light armor archery builds. Their unarmed attacks are the strongest "weapon" you can get when you start the game due to the claws ability. If you go archer, you don't need to waste weight on a close-range weapon because your fists will crack skulls more efficiently. Paired with the Gloves of the Pugilest, tack 10 more damage onto those punches. There are better race choices (Orc) for heavy armor melee builds, but having 15+ unarmed damage at the start of the game is a strong asset to a new player.

  • Brian Patton

    Great video and very helpful.Thanks for making this.

  • Antonio Rodriguez

    If you want help on keeping your smithing speech and enchanting up (and slightly alteration) through them Game which all take time here's to raise up and keep steady how: so first get the transmute alteration spell and always keep a pick axe with you. Whenever you get an empty soul gem try to fill it by using the soul trap conjuration spell which can be bought from the dragons reach court wizard. When you find a mine, you can activate an animation to mine by approaching an ore vein with the action button. If it is silver or iron ore good. If it's gold ore still good. Now fast travel on your map to the guardian stone. Activate the mage stone. Staying in that location use the transmute spell and it will turn a silver ore to gold ore. Then iron ores to silver ores. Then those silvers to gold. This may take a lot of magika so once you run out simply use the corresponding "wait" button to quickly refill your magika then repeat.Once you see on the top left corner of your screen: no more ore left to transmute, the activate the warrior stone. Now fast travel to white run. To your right should be a smelter, a forge, workbench and grindstone. Go to the smelter and smelt all gold ore to gold ingots. Then head over to the forge and select the jewelry section where you will find gold ring (2). Craft as many as you can. Now your smithing should have increased exp by a few levels depending on your level. Now fast travel back to the guardian stones and activate the mage stone once again. Travel to dragons reach which is just the jarls court in white run. Remember how I said when you find soul gems fill them by killing an Enemy after using the spell soul trap on them? Now head to the jarls court wizard room which is to the right of the entrance. You should see a blue table. If you have any armor enchantments then your good to go. If not, simply find a piece of armor that's enchanted and continue the steps I'm telling you. Head over to the table and disenchant your armor piece if you had no armor enchantment. Scroll down to "item" and select "gold ring". Now go to "enchatment" and select any armor enchantment which should be highlighted in white. Now scroll down to "soul gem" and select any soul gem you want. Now click the enchant button for PS4 this is square. Do this to ad many gold rings as possible. Now head over back to the guardian stones one last time. Activate the thief stone. Now head back to white run and enter the general goods store located in the market area in whiterun. Enter and sell gold rings until the vendor has no or too little money. To refill his money click the pause button and quick save. Now kill the vendor and reload that quick save. Now if done right, his inventory and money should be refilled so you can sell again. So from this your smithing enchanting alteration and speech skill should have all leveled up hope this helped.

    Think you'll ever get around to Morrowind guides, Will?

  • Jörg Bellinghausen

    Rock-solid advice! Btw, Could you be talked into a Dawnguard playthrough similar to your (IMO) fantastic Dragonborn series?

  • chickendinner2012

    Great guide, I didn't know about a few of those things!

  • sirenia

    that's the dragonborn quest like where you are level 1, i start with avoiding dragonborn questline, level up first, go to bandit camp, pick up book (one handed skill) and robe plus bag of gold then talos shrine with 2 thalmor skeleton, loot them and the dead thalmor then bypast riverwood to whiterun, bribe guard to get in, take mammoth tusk and redguard sword quest, you come to 2 bandits, loot chest to get 3 more bandits coming down the hill finish up getting mammoth tusk and sword , sell the loot and buy flame atronach and a Direwolf Familiar then go to lost knife hideout, get more loot and sell, then go to crossroad and head to winterhold, do the ward quest and get for more spell books plus 3 quest books, go to outside whiterun and do the red eagle's sword quest, get more loot back to whiterun, sell loot, you will be level 10 or 12, any quest that has no word wall, once you do all that then start the dragonborn questline.
