    No massive spoilers, but to be safe....:

    I've been playing the excellent Dragonborn expansion and have just done "the quest" where I am supposedly allowed to use Stalhrim, or have been granted permission to use the forge in Skaal village to make stuff with it - however I don't know what I am supposed to do - there is no option at the blacksmith at either the forge, or with the guy who runs it, but I am carrying 5x of what looks more stalhrim ore.

    My assumption is that I either need to do something to turn the ore into ingots (Smelter doesn't give me any options, so I feel this is less likely), or, I need to reach a particular level in Smithing - I'm playing as a brand new character and only level 22 currently and my smithing skill is in the mid 50s

    Can anyone shed any light on the exact requirements? I feel like I've done a fair chunk of the DLC already so I'd quite like to use some of the unique items on what remains.

  • It requires the perk ebony Smithing. It does not need to be smelted; it is used as-is.

  • Possible Duplicate: Are there disadvantages to wearing armor as a mage casting spells? I am playing a mage in skyrim (100% magicka increase per level). So basically my health is pretty low. Now cloth items do not seem to have high armor ratings. I thought I could use heavy armor instead. I thought of using the Astronach Forge to create deadric armor, so I do not have to invest any perks in smithing. Furthermore I am currently at 100 enchanting, thus I can use very good enchants on any item, like heavy armor. Say I invest some time and perks in heavy armor and remove the speed

  • I'm pretty new to the game, and plan to do something like this - I basically like the Dragonplate Armor so, I was thinking how early in the game can you get it. Through power-levelling (in this case, getting Smithing to Lv100) it can be done at almost any point of the game. So I can just use that Iron Dagger trick to max out smithing, fight some Dragons quickly to get the required Dragon Bones/Plates, and then make my armor. But I've seen people say that if one levels up their, say, smithing too much without leveling up combat skills (I'm playing a sword-n-shield warrior, so say One-Handed

  • ? To give you an idea of what I have - Level 41 Breton where I hack at people with an axe and use destruction spells with my other hand. I've liked it so far, but I'm starting to feel like I need... hours concentrating on smithing alone so I could go from level 85-100 and my enchanting is only 56. I am beginning to feel like I am working more than playing the game. Any tips? Thanks for all your...This is my first time in the series and I feel like I am all over the place. I'm a master at smithing, but everything else is in the 50's/60's. Only a few others are over 70. This link made me

  • Do I need to take each child perk along the perk tree in addition to meeting the skill requirements for perks? For instance, the smithing perk tree is split into two sections: The left, which features light armor (Elven, Glass) and the right, which features the Heavier armor (Orcish, Ebony). The Capstone Perk in the tree, Dragon Smithing, has "feed-in" lines from both Glass Smithing and Daedric Smithing. Do I need to need to take Glass Smithing and Daedric Smithing if I want to learn the Dragon Smithing perk? Either or? Neither (as long as I have 100 smithing)?

  • before Arniel's Endeavor. I should also point out that I just became Arch-mage of Winterhold a little while back. I'm not done playing the game yet, so I'd like to request that you give me no spoilers as part of your answer (at least without tagging it, so I can decide). Of course, you're unlikely to need any such thing, but I've recently had some stuff spoiled for me, so please bear with me. In sum, my question is, is this normal behavior? If it isn't, what can I do to fix it? I already know of the "setownership" console command that I can use at a pinch, but I'd rather avoid

  • Possible Duplicate: Plant Respawn Time As I understand it ore veins regenerate their ore after 14 game days, but what about other things? I paid for a garden at one of my homes and I picked all the veggies thinking they would grow back. But so far they have not. Do any of the plants grow back? Whats the point of buying a garden that has a one time use, worth a few gold peaces? Also, what about chests? There has been more than one time that I when back into a cave and there was more stuff in the chests. Do they reset after a number of days? Or is it a quest thing?

  • fellow mad scientists. I've been playing FTB Unleashed (v1.1.3) for a while now and I recently discovered the Applied Energistics mod. I've also watched Direwolf20's spotlight and a couple other YouTube videos about it and it's looking really awesome. This is my first attempt at an ME network, but I've hit a bit of a snag; I've read on the wiki and seen on YouTube that you can import items from... is that the Basic Import Bus doesn't appear to be pulling the items out of the Macerator once they're done. I'm not sure why it's not doing anything, because I've made sure that everything has sufficient

  • I currently have a RB1 set that I got way back when it originally came out, but I've been considering getting a new set so that I can start playing pro drums on RB3. I figure that if I'm going to get... adapter. I really like the feel of the double-bass setup, and I really like the pedals themselves. I don't want to lose the ability to use these. In looking at the specs for the ION set, it appears that they use 1/4" cables/connectors for the pads and the pedal. Is this correct? If so, would it be possible to use my current double-bass adapter and pedals with an ION set if I pick up an 1/8

  • I've been playing Fallout 3 GOTY edition (via Steam). So far the game has been relatively well-behaved - good performance, and only an occasional crash (like once every 3 hours, which is something I... in the unique area opened by the quest, and inside the huge crawler. And I think it might have been related. I also have a bunch of stuff in my inventory, but not more than what I've been carrying throughout the rest of game (though I do carry more weapons and less armor than what I used to). Is this a known issue? Any idea how to solve this problem? System is Windows 7 64-bit, 4 GB RAM, Core 2
