My year of no new games is in full effect. I made a rule. I would allow any expansion or DLC for any game I currently own. When the Xbox live sale for the Skyrim DLC hit I jumped in. I had mid level character that I wasn't really happy with. I typically play the TES games as a light armored rogue-ish warrior with some magic skills for enchanting or buffing. I decided this go round to play a full on heavy armored mage. I over invested my game time into trade skills. My character ended up not being that fun. And despite the lost time I decided to re-roll.
I made a Breton female and I am having a blast with her. I am slowing leveling many my battle abilities. It is pretty crazy that except for destruction magic my 10 hours in invested in this new character has already reached higher skills in one hand combat (I used spells in my off hand and finished them off when i ran out of mana with my sword so its not that big of a surprise) and armor.
Will be updating as I go on. But this re-roll was super painless and I am glad I did so.
