    Open your console and set your Speed stat to 100-200. Suddenly the game is 10 times better. But it'll be broken if you chose Speed skills in character creation, like short blade

      it won't, speed doesn't dictate damage done by short blades at all, nor does it have an effect on other skills that it governs

    Combat is very simple, use a weapon or skill you have tagged and charge your melee attacks. The slow walking speed can be mitigated early on by tagging athletics as a major skill and taking the star sign Steed. It might not be the game for you it is abstract and archaic

        If your long blade stat is less than 40 then you probably won't hit shit. Your stamina meter also effects every single stat roll (even for dialogue) so make sure you're managing it well, it's slow to refill so buy some potions. After doing some questing you'll have enough money to afford trainers, which is what you should spend most of your money on early game

    Some playthroughs instead of going to 100 speed I intentionally stop raising around 70-80 because that feels "right" to me. You can get pretty close to that from the beginning of the game by choosing the Steed birthsign.

    If you set a weapon as a major skill, use that weapon type, and keep your Stamina high during fights you shouldn't have any problems at all with combat. If you really can't get over the melee combat, use the Fair Magicka Regen mod and play a mage. Magicka Regen is not necessary but if someone can't even handle the melee combat I think it's fair to assume they won't like having to manage magicka through potions/scrolls/spells/sleeping.

                I mixed up two things. Socrates and Plato complained about how books were making people dumb and reliant on external sources to retain information, damaging their memory, imagination, and ability to solve complex problems.

                Aristotle just complained about the youth being too emotional and not respecting their elders, among other things.

      It’s just fricked man. I played this game for hundreds of hours in my youth and had zero problem with anything and enjoyed all of it. Never once thought about my strategy for some shit. Just bumble around and do random shit and you’ll accomplish it all with no problem. Take a massive bong rip and try it if you can’t get into the spirit of it on your own. It’s roleplaying.

        it really is, that's what makes Morrowind so great. Everyone these days is concerned with meta, and exploits, such. They cannot begin to imagine how great this game was in 2002, 2003, when you get lost in the game and figure stuff out just playing the game how you want to.

    Make a custom enchanted ring in the construction kit that gives you 20 more speed and a restore fatigue 4 points to counteract the drain from walking and now the game is playable without being broken

    How can you be filtered by this? just get a good weapon preferably an enchanted one, and hit enemies with it until they die.

    Jump around like every person.

    It's not hard to come up with solutions to challenges you face in a videogame. this isn't an issue with morrowind itself, you lot lack ingenuity. how can you not have basic problem solving skills as a human?

    Skills derive their potential usefulness from attributes, which can both be raised permanently though in-game practice and leveling up, and temporarily through some potions, alcohols, ingredients, or enchanted items.

    Want to run faster? Increase athletics and speed. Jump higher and take less fall damage? Increase acrobatics and strength. Dodge physical attacks better? Increase unarmored and speed.

    The game isn't entirely about the game, it's about the numbers, how you get them, and what you can do with them. It plays more like a sandbox with a story narrative that is so entirely outlandish, you really are an outlander if you aren't familiar with it.

    Biggest tip I can give you is my penis head, second biggest tip is using enchanted items fortify speed/athletics and/with restore stamina. Alternatively, use stamina restore potions to restore stamina, some potion sellers infinitely restock them.

      For dodging, only Fatigue, Agility, Luck, and Sanctuary is taken into account. Unarmored only raises your armor rating, and you dodge just as well with heavy, medium or light armor.

    The slow walking speed is part of the charm and atmosphere. Walking slowly while those big mushrooms and boggy creeks and mudcrabs come into view is kino especially with the calm water theme. The combat sucks but it is what it is. I’ll boot up the game still just to walk around punch mud crabs and listen to npcs complain at me for being naked

    Use alchemy to become a god. But don't put your strength too high or you will literally break your weapons in 1 hit from smacking mobs with the force of 10,000 mountains.

    Been playing it a lot recently, love the game. Building characters tickles my autism, but the early levels are atrocious. After enough smacking enemies with a weapon (and missing 50% of the time, even with decent agility, major weapons skill, and full stamina), you eventually stop getting stagger-locked and two-shot. Consider inebriation or develop severe roleplay autism to make it more bearable.
    Anyways, my current favorite character has been a qt breton merchant girl. What's your guys favorite build?

    1. Put a melee weapon skill in major
    2. Put an armor skill in major
    3. Put conjuration in at least minor unless you use spear short blade or long blade
    4. If using spear, short blade or long blade, go to ra’virr in Balmora and buy the devil/demon/fiend weapon that matches the melee weapon skill you picked. Use the enchantment on the weapon (you have to cast it) to summon a bound weapon that is fairly strong and has a +10% chance to hit
    4. If using any other weapon skill, buy the appropriate bound weapon spell, then make a custom spell of summon bound weapon for 18 seconds.
    5. Put either security or alteration in major
    5. (Optional) pick mysticism for quality of life (teleportation)
    6. (Optional) Pick restoration and a magic sign for general overpoweredness
    7. (Optional) if you pick the Atronach, choose conjuration as major and make a summon ancestral ghost spell that lasts 6 seconds, then aggro it with punches and absorb its spells. This basic gives you infinite mana
    P.S. Mercantile is basically useless and armorer, acrobatics and alchemy level up so fast that there’s not much point in picking any of them except for maybe alchemy so you can see potion/ingredient effects. Also, speed is more important for movement speed than athletics, so pick athletics if you want but don’t wor try about leveling it. Level speed to go faster. Also, if you want to min-max, always level endurance as much as possible.

    That’s pretty much everything you need to know

      Also, if you really want the easiest time hitting stuff, pick the warrior as your sign. It’s basically useless once you max your weapon skill but it gives you a 10% bonus to hit chance which is significant

        Personal opinion but the lover is a better birthsign, sure it only comes down to 5% but it also increases your evasion, lets you train agility related skills to a higher level and you get a paralyze power.
