    I'm on the PS3 with this. I can't think of how I lost my save. Actually, I did just delete a shitload of UFC3 replays, maybe it was in the middle of those. What I do know, is that it's gone, and that sucks.

    Everything is fine now, but I don't use autosave. I noticed the last place I saved the game is when I was going to talk to Cindel. (can't remember the werewolfs name)

    I have the ring now though.



    I got the ring now, but I noticed you must first be a werewolf.. sigh.

    Well, I'm currently doing the companions quests finally and hopefully this ring will come in handy.

    There is no quicksave on the 360, but otherwise it's the same. It also defaults to saving to a new slot, which with some frequent saving racks up the save slots, so I periodically go through and delete some of the old saves. The PS3 just saves on a standard system save screen.

    This proved to be a slight issue at first, as 2 of my friends wanted to both play Skyrim on the PS3, so they each ended up using a flash drive to save their character(s) to, because otherwise whoever played last pretty much deleted everyone else. So they'd save at the end of the night back to the Flash Drive and switch out to change characters.

    That's interesting. I didn't know you could save to removable storage on the PS3.

    Timed exclusive? Stupid as hell. Guess I'll have to wait since I have the game for the PC. Hopefully it is just for a month.

    Yeah, that's what it was for New Vegas, I figure it will be the same here. Microsoft paid a ton of money for timed exclusives on the first two Skyrim DLCs.

    Dawnguard? A group related with the Mythic Dawn? And eyes similar to this:

    I think we're going back to one of the Oblivion realms. There are a lot more other than the Deadlands (the place all the portals opened to in ES4) and Shivering Isles.

    I'm thinking the DLC art shows the dude as a vampire.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what does timed exclusive mean?

    It's exclusive to the 360 for a certain amount of time.

    So what is the best way to go about grinding out your smithing now that the patch makes the iron dagger thing kinda useless?

    Exactly my thought. Did they nerf Smithing in the last patch? I've been playing ME3 and DCUO the last few months.

    It's now entirely dependent on the value of the item that you smith. Jewelry is the way forward.

    Yes, and yes they did. I realised this after making 1560 Iron daggers :redface2:

    Ugh, I seriously hope not. Wasn't a huge fan of being forced into becoming a werewolf if you did the Companions questline, but it was atleast very tolerable since you could pretty much ignore it altogether until you got the opportunity to cure yourself of it. Well, except for being denied the Well Rested bonus, which I just found to be idiotic IMO.

    Being forced into becoming a vampire? I don't know about that. Vampirism has some pretty nasty drawbacks compared to Lycanthropy. The one time I inadvertantly tried it in Oblivion I absolutely hated only being able to go outside at night and having to feed on sleeping people to stay healthy. So much so that I chose to revert to an older save and lose a couple hours of playtime to undo it.

    Granted, I've not experienced Vampirism in Skyrim and don't ever plan on it. But still, I'd really hate a questline, DLC or not, that forces it on you.

    Popular rumor is, as people have already mentioned, that it's only supposed to be a month. Still sucks for us PC and PS3 players to have to wait at all, but compared to how things went with the PS3 versions of Fallout 3 and Oblivion, a month is nothing.

    Oh godammit, looks like I won't be connecting to XBL anytime soon. So what, do you not get any experience for making daggers at all?

    :lolol
