the first town (riverton?) i walked out of the shop and 3 mercs attacked me, i had to run and hide in water and shoot em cuz they cant swim i guess.
im lvl 21 kahjit
i did some companion quests (got the special ability, then stole some plans which was really hard at first i had to reload and stealth kill em all), did starter quest for thieves, and some minor side quests. i have mostly leveled off of crafting. only been to whiterun and became thane, took carriage to winterfold to start mage guild, went to rifton to appraise a gem and ended up joining thieves, and took carriage to solitude for a quest. havent done much exploring
oh and i went to the greybeards and learned some beginner shouts
i am wearing heavy armor and stuff is hitting me so hard, i had to lower difficulty cuz im chugging potions so much, did i level too fast from crafting causing my character to just suck in fights?
50 stealth and 40ish bow if i cant get the stealth kill then hide right away i get beat up really bad by the mobs buddies
most of my 30-40+ skills are like non combat stuff
when i did oblivions level system i ran into a problem where i was high level but since i leved off "main skills" so quick it made my character suck since i didnt maximize my attributes by doing minor skills before hitting the level.
am i doing quests that are too high for me, or is the scaling broke?
i guess the whole point of this post is, are you suppose to take a ton of damage, or is my character just weak because i leveled too fast and still barely started?
