Oblivion Progress

Just realised Aid for Bruma was optional... still got some good Transcendant Sigil Stones! The Feather ones are awesome!

Level 22 at the minute.

Strength: 94
Intelligence: 100
Willpower: 75
Agility: 100
Speed: 100
Endurance: 90
Personality: 55
Luck: 65

83 hours with this character... think that's the longest I've ever stayed with one . So yeah, pretty much addicted again. Started buying houses... own 5 now! Anvil one is pretty cool as was the quest to obtain it.

Spend so much time trying to level efficiently can't wait until Strength, Endurance and Willpower are maxed... then I'll be able to really spend all of time time enjoying the game. Willpower is by far the worst, Destruction and Restoration take AGES to level.

Anyway shouldn't be too hard to level Personality once those 3 are done, Illusion seems to level pretty quickly and I'll just be sure to do practice it when I'm running anywhere. And even with Speechcraft I'll be spending less time levelling than I am now.

Here's a pic of the excel spreadsheet I use, pretty nerdy I know but it's the only way I can keep track of the levelling process.

Not as far through the main quest as I thought but hopefully it'll just be another 10 hours or so.

So yeah that's my progress so far, I'll be updating it or posting a new blog and deleting this one as time goes on.

    I have half a billion gold on oblivion.

    Woah... ok... I was pretty proud of my 70,000 or so :O.

    EDIT: How did you get that much gold? That's insane I mean the most you can make in any transaction is 1700 and you would have had to find or make 300,000 items worth that much... seems pretty difficult without cheating...

    EDIT 2: Well with Expansions it's 2500 but still that's 200,000 items.

    Infinite Money - Dorian

    Note: This has been corrected by the Oblivion 1.1.511 patch.

    This glitch specifically occurs with the NPC Dorian, who lives in the Talos Plaza District in the Imperial City. If you kill him, you can repeatedly loot his corpse for gold, and the gold never disappears from his body. You can keep doing this until eventually after a few days his body disappears. (If you clear the hard drive cache on the Xbox, by holding A as the game boots, his body will no longer be there). It would be better to Paralyze him or drain his fatigue to make him fall. You could then pickpocket him and only get 40 bounty for each spell cast. When collecting the gold, do not select "Take All" or the game may freeze.

    The amount of gold that he initially has is random. To increase the amount of gold on his corpse, you can spend time bribing him before killing him. Repeatedly bribe him until his disposition has reached its maximum. To add even more gold, attack him then yield, and start over again.

    If you are a stealth-oriented character or are just quick with a blade, weapon or spell, you can quickly kill Dorian without alerting the guards. If you are not able to kill him quickly, it is best to first corner him so he can not run away. A good place to do this is the upstairs room in his house. First unlock and open the upstairs doors, then go back downstairs, find Dorian, and hit him once. With him chasing you, run upstairs to his room, close the door, and stand in front of it so he can not run away. Kill him and loot his corpse for the gold. By this time, the guards will have been alerted, so be sure to drop any stolen goods you are carrying before the Imperial Officer shows up. Choose to pay your bounty, using the gold you just looted from Dorian. Once you've finished settling the tab, return to Dorian's house, retrieve your stolen goods, and start looting Dorian's gold.

    The post-patch version of this glitch has two different methods. The first method is to paralyze Dorian and loot his body while he is paralyzed. The second method is to damage his fatigue until he falls down; you can then loot his body.

    The way i did it was the scrolls glitch. multiplying an item millions of time and selling them. It takes a while but its cool to see your money go up. I only spend about an hour at a time doing it (the rest gameplay) but it amounts up.

    I suppose once you're over a certain amount of money in the game anyway, you can buy anything. So cheating at that point is no big deal.
