That luck section was really helpful, thanks! This should be stickied.

Just curious, how do you think you pronounce "Askilfeasd"? Because I never have tried to pronounce it myself.

I wouldn't pronounce it like that (I would do as Tesseract), but I could offer some "Ask-aisle-fee-asd". :cool:

The traditional pronunciation Askil-feas, "d" is silent.

There is a traditional pronunciation?! Wow, to think scrambling the keyboard 7 years ago would have a traditional pronunciation.

Wow, thats quite an impressive guide you've written up there. Did you write all of that, or copy and paste parts of it.

70% I wrote, 30% copy & paste with references. As an active Oblivion player, I'm including all of the important stuff that I've been exposed to for getting the most out of the game.

If a game has many features, I usually create this kind of a one source document so when I forget how do do something or where I got it, I use the FAQ as a reference.

The single most devestating cheats effecting game play are the consol commands. I use them on a limited basis, otherwise why bother playing the game?

Maybe I'm rationalizing, but I use the add gold cheat on a regular basis using the following method. I've found that the Oblivion gates are treaser troves of loot. As a high 20s level character I typically found 25,000 gold worth of loot in one gate (I'm now level 30).  However vendors will only play you a portion of it's value. Some vendors will only pay a maximum of 800 gold per high value item and some only 400 gold per item.  After I clear a gate and just before I close it (which ejects you back into the normal countryside), I could spend an hour lugging out each individual piece and dragging it to the nearest vendor, which can be quite a distance. Instead I keep track of the loot as I find it, keep any important weapons or armor I want to use, and then I add it up using the vendor's redemption rate and use the "player.additem f 16000" command to give myself 16000 gold, which is what the vendor would have given me for the 25000 haul. In this way I've removed a repetitive and laborious aspect of the game and still feel like I've earned it. Am I deluding myself? :)

I stopped bothering with loot after I reached my upper 20s levels and consistently had 60,000+ gold for whatever reason. I like to close my Oblivion gates in under 3 minutes. :nods:
