I am trying to gain more followers/mercenaries without getting rid of anyone. Is this possible ? The only comrade I have at the moment is Lydia from the main quest. 

#2 Posted by WhiteStormy (241 posts) -

Yeah, you can only have one follower at a time.  If you dismiss a follower in favor of another, you can always get them back by simply asking.  Some followers can permanantly die though.

If you go to the College of Winterhold and do the mage's questline, and some of the sidequests, you can get a shade which you can summon.  He's kind of like a follower except you summon him via spell, he fights for a while, then disappears.  If you level up certain types of magic enough (conjuration I think) you can also get other people you summon, up to two at once I believe.  Read through those skill trees for magic, I think you can get them to stick around permanently if you level up the right stuff.

Hmmm where can I get the Deadric armor ? Isn't it spread out ? And where is the summon ?

the summon is for mastering the conjuration skill tree you can buy the skillbook once having the needed level, and deadric armor can be smithed once you master the smithing tree , protip ; crafted deadric items + enchantments selling is all you need to never worry about money in skyrim ;)

 

how to easily grind the skills:

smithing: purchase lots  iron and craft the cheapest items , repeat that and youll get to the top in notime, it doesnt matter what you craft it gives the same amount of xp progress

conjuration: summon a companion and kill him , repeat until you get the needed level

I have a high level already (81), but where can I purchase the skillbook ? And my smithing tree is already maxed.

for smithing you need to choose the perk on top that allows you to smith deadric armors, and the skillbook can be purchased in the winterhood college from the conjuration mage , sry forgot his name

#21 Posted by Jackc8 (8500 posts) -

There's ebony ore and ebony ingots.  You can combine 2 ores together at the smelter to make one ingot.

Which is kind of funny because in real life ebony is a type of wood.

Do like Jackc said and take the ore to a smelter.  There's one in Winterhold and Whiterun.

#25 Posted by idunnodude (2282 posts) -

if you already have 100 smithing then you've got the hard/tedious part out of the way. now you just need ebony ingots/ore. they can be found all around, but if i recall correctly there is more in one of the orcish strongholds in a mine. just youtube it i'm sure you'll find it soon enough.

after that you need daedric hearts, which can be hard to come by. there is one at the companions guild in whiterun. you will probably need more though. you can find more by doing daedric quests for the daedric gods. most of them will require you to face daedra in battle, and when you kill them you can loot a heart. and a lot of them give you cool weapons/items when you finish the quests.

once you make the armour, you can enchant them however you like assuming you have the proper materials/enchantments. it's easy to become an overpowered god in this game, but also really fun. i have a pure mage and i just love using lightning storm on enemies like a freakin kamehameha on everything and pwn dragons out of the sky. great stuff.

great sidequests though, it'll be worth it just for the hearts but they are also very amusing and interesting. some of the best sidequests in the game. me personally, i stuck with the dragon armour. i just liked the look better and it fit my roleplay more. nord dragonborn wearing dragonbone armour just felt badass.

I have to do the thieves guild before I get the hearts. Ethnir at the College of Winterhold won't sell them to me since I am a Arch-Mage. In otherwords, I've gotta get my hands dirty :lol:

If you go to the College of Winterhold and do the mage's questline, and some of the sidequests, you can get a shade which you can summon.  He's kind of like a follower except you summon him via spell, he fights for a while, then disappears.  If you level up certain types of magic enough (conjuration I think) you can also get other people you summon, up to two at once I believe.  Read through those skill trees for magic, I think you can get them to stick around permanently if you level up the right stuff.

Do you know who provides the quest for the summon spell?

well smithing 100 isnt enough you need to have the corresponding perk activated
#33 Posted by Ilikemyname420 (5146 posts) -
For the followers thing there are some glitches to get you past the one creature/one person limit (just look up the multiple follower glitches). And of course you can always start the quests where they give you a follower and just simply not finish the quest (You cant order them or give them equipment but otherwise they act as another follower).

be warned though. when you really get into enchantment you can pretty much make yourself a god in the game and overpowered. not that thats a bad thing lol i enjoy it but some don't. my mage never runs out of mana and my warrior can kill dragons in like 3 hits of my daedric greatsword.

if you want to level it up fast just buy a bunch of lesser soul gems filled with lesser souls. and then enchant a bunch of iron daggers. just youtube how to level up enchanting fast, theres tons of guides. its a good way to level up both smithing and enchanting at the same time. leveling up enchanting is tedious, and not particularily fun or anything. but its the only way to become truly powerful in this game.
