okay i need the names of those mods.
muffled clear mind in the distance intensifies
The mods in question are empowering enchants and spells of the third era. I also used 'left hand rings' to put the enchantment on rings, a hat and a chest piece.

Tomb with a view
This week on 'Tomb with a view' we are looking at Nordic ruins and we ask the viewers, what ruin would you like to renovate into a living space or even an entire settlement? What are the Pro's and Con's of that location?
Shriekwind Bastion. Seriously, that view from the top is just awesome. Bonus points to being able to play lookout for Falkreath.

For me it's got to be Labyrinthian. Lots of space, many different sized rooms, points of interest and sub locations. Not the easiest to get to, but within a reasonable distance of Morthal.

Too bad Morthal is a literal swamp backwater with little in the way of amenities.
Blackreach. Already a good living space, but we just need to clear out the Falmer and settle it for the civilized peoples of Tamriel.
Hire retired Legionaires and form a mercenary unit for the task. Offer them a discount or even free room and board for the place after they're done.
You might get takers.
I'v been playing modless Skyrim for the past few days so I could collect the remaining DLC trophies I didn't get. To do that as smoothly as possible, I spent my time power-grinding all 3 crafting stats to get great gear and lost of money.
First was getting Alchemy to 70 so I could have lots of spare cash and health potions, then I needed 50 Speech to get the Merchant perk. Getting that allowed me to level Enchanting to 50 in a shorter time-span than normal because I didn't need to leave the College of Winterhold. Smithing was the biggest roadblock because the most efficient way to do it was to smith and upgrade Dwemer equipment, but I needed to do a lot of adventuring to get the most important pieces of that method; the Aetherial Crown and the Ancient Knowledge perk. I needed to get 30 smithing before then so I could actual do anything with said Dwemer gear, so I found the Transmute spell and went about mining Iron Ingots to turn them into Gold Rings. Made a nice penny from that too.
Completing the Lost to the Ages quest was actually fun in terms of mission structure, and having Marcuiro around to provide lore dumps about and excitement at the Dwemer ruins enhanced the experience. I even got the first of my missing trophies for completing it! Then I had to loot Calcelmo's museum for extra Dwemer parts for free ingots, cause boy is creating over a hundred bows and upgrading them costly. Worth it obviously, since I also had a lot of spare weapons to enchant with Banish. Eventually I reached 100 Enchanting and went about enchanting a set of Ebony armor and sword I created with my 90 Smithing skill.
Currently my character sits at 100 Enchanting, 91 Smithing, 89 Alchemy, 50 One-handed, 45 Heavy Armor, 36 Conjuration, 26 Alteration, and 18 Restoration. Playing a Nord with maximum Fire and Ice defense and maxed out sword and bow damage, all from enchanting. Getting the Dragonstone for Farengar as we speak.

Is there any reason to play modless for that? I play with mods and still get achievements as they come. Or is this a console thing?
Hag's End, if the Forswons are cleared, have a good hidden open area. Not far from Solitude.

Mods disable achievements/trophies, so you have to play modless on console if you want to Platinum the game.
Skyrim: a game where you can save the world several times and/or go around murdering npc's using fish (without mods even)
A herring? ;P
It's pretty cliche I know, but I couldn't resist the allure of cosplaying as the promotional Dragonborn once I had gotten 246% Fortify Smithing. My armor rating, even with Iron and Studded Armor, is around 438. That's with only one perk in the Heavy Armor skill tree as well, so imagine how high it would be if I had more of them. To complete the cosplay I smithed up a Steel Longsword to have 167 damage, which exploded to 464 damage after applying enchanted gear. I broke character a but by using a Daedric Bow, but Ancient and Revered Dragons kinda warrant it since my character doesn't have Dragon Rend yet.
I also completed the Companions questline so I could skill train the crap out of Heavy Armor, One Handed, and Archery. This of course required me to level up each time I trained 5 levels into these trainer, so I combined it with Telekinesis to grind Alteration over and over again until I got all three of those skills to 90 and 75 each. This eventually took me to level 92. I just met Delphine after she took the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller.
Thanks to a mod for the SE version of Skyrim, I have just adopted Aventus Arentino. What can I say, he loved his mother enough to use her as a means of getting rid of Grelod the Kind. I have to admire that.
Just saw that Lawrence Schick is leaving ESO. He made some really interesting comments on his way out, talking about how the lore in ESO is developed through essentially a collaborative process between the developers and the players. Itís worth a read.
