Skyrim: Path of The Amazon Update! (Elder Scrolls V Skyrim PC)

The Amazon has gone through a lot of changes since she first debuted!

Since I last posted about my heroine, The Amazon, she was of relatively low level, in some slightly crafted armor and equipment, and just growing up in skills. Well, fast forward to today and I think she's come quite a bit.
At Level 47, she's VERY formidable now. She's already got 100 Skill in both Smithing and Alchemy, which allows her to craft Legendary weapons and armor to use, as well as powerful potions that can augment her attack power or heal her in a flash- or do a lot of other effects. Only a wee bit more leveling up in Enchanting and she's maxed out in the crafting part.

Fighting-wise, she's pretty strong but can get stronger. I've decided to branch out her skills from just One-handed to Two-handed weapons, in order to have more variety in Kill move cutscenes for future vids. Still not wanting her to use too much magic- I don't think she needs it- but if she does, perhaps a bit of Conjuration would be cool so she could summon some backup in a flash if she needs it.

She's changed her hairstyle recently, care of the Face But- er, Face Sculptor of Riften.

I think I really like her new look (this has yet to debut on vids- I am so advanced relatively in video postings and in actual gameplay). It's a Tribal Huntress/Semi-Barbaric Frontierswoman look. The Dragonplate armor is the strongest she can have, though I've decided to have her use the sexy Steel Shin Greaves of the Imperial set (a lot sexier and shows more than the Dragonplate greaves); crafted up they give more than enough protection anyway. The Ornate Bear Cloak with the feathers makes her look a bit tribal which I really like (it looks kinda regal, in a barbarian sort of way).

Oh, and by now she's also quite loaded with cash (gold). I realized in previous playthroughs I've done, I invested points into Speech perks (Investor) which gave merchants a lot more money- I haven't done that yet, so I most often clean out shops of cash when I visit. Anyways, thanks to her Alchemy The Amazon can pretty much make a comfy living selling potions she brews (they sell for a LOT). In fact, she's made most of her money that way, and I got her Smithing up simply by upgrading stuff she finds- I only rarely did the Iron Dagger spamming trick.
Anyway, long story short- she's got more than enough cash and can make more honestly (take that, Brynjolf) without needing to loot every corpse she comes across. So I need to resist the urge and just loot only the choicest bits.
Just recently as well, she got her Enchanting to 100 and got the awesome Extra Effect perk- which is pretty much the ticket to really kicking ass in Skyrim.

Even at a pretty high level, she's got a LOT to do yet, and she's nowhere near being 'overpowered' (even if I can still kill a dragon in a couple of hits). I only recently got her into the Companions, but I expect to blow through that easily. I plan to go through the Main Quest, Dawnguard, Dragonborn and perhaps even that cool mod quest Falskaar eventually.

Her alternate look is wearing the Warchief Headdress- really fierce and fitting for a huntress like her.

Perhaps someday when The Amazon has adventured a lot more and decides to take a vacation, I'll start off a Magic-user character. A barefoot shaman/sorceress? Perhaps someday. Hmmm...


  1. Wow...she looks really great Sole Keeper. It must be awesome to control such a beautiful and powerful barefoot character. ^_^

  2. Glad you like her, KSC! Yeah, indeed- I always get a delight when she finishes off an opponent by stomping on their faces with her bare foot. :)
