Gonna start a new character in Skyrim..

Would an archer/mage or Archer/warrior be better?

Either one is fine, if you are on console it may be a little difficult at first. I prefer to play as a sneak archer, you can get a perk to make your arrow attacks 3x stronger when sneaking, so you can do some super powerful attacks from a far distance.

If you do mage, you can get a bonus if you enchant your weapons with fire, frost or sparks, so that is always good.

If you go warrior, many people do blades or daggers for quick attacks, especially equipped with enchantments to earn health or stamina.

edit: Archery gets fun at lvl 50 archery. You can do slow motion and you can stagger your opponents, and you can do much more damage. Once you get to lvl 50 you see how powerful archery can be. At lvl 60 it get's even better with the faster movement and lvl 70 you become unstoppable. I focus on:

Archery, Enchantment, Sneak, Destruction, Alchemy, Smithing. You can buy cheap soul gems (petty) and keep a bowl with soul trap and just soul trap all animals and non-humans and you will have a rack of soul gems. Use them to enchant all weapons you pick up and sell them for a bunch of money to train or buy weapons/armor/spells whatever. At 100 enchantment you can dual enchant, and be awesome.

Warrior is a blast, I went heavy armor/blocking heavy and I took on about 15 Imperial soldiers and mowed through them without any problems. I'm at level 45ish and I've died maybe twice the entire time?

That sounds highly annoying. No, I cannot help. I'd check google.

I can't become a thane in Winterhold because it won't ever mark the Helm of Winterhold quest as being complete. It just keeps giving it to me over and over.

Started playing Skyrim again and got to Blackreach. I'm completely overwhelmed with how big this place is and it's so dark I can't see anything.

I haven't played Skyrim in forever either. I left it at home so my step-brother could play it. For now, LoL, NHL12, and L.A. Noire have my attention.

I figured it out.. had to go ethereal a few times.. still annoying..

I don't understand why Bethesda puts out so many buggy games.. I understand it's hard to make a relatively bugless open world game.. But so many bugs in Fallout 3, New Vegas, Skyrim, and Oblivion.. They need better game testers

They stated that they planned on leaving helpful bugs in their games from now on after the backlash for removing Oblivion's duplication and infinite money glitches. I can imagine this creates a problem when try to preserve these while fixing bad ones.

For that, what i did was turn the music down on the game and listen for the shiny sound.. usually when you hear the sound there are 2 nirnroots near you

I haven't played in a while mostly due to uni work, but I'm a PS3 person myself. Although I did get an upgraded laptop (Core i7, 8GB RAM, 2GB Graphics card) so I might switch back to playing on PC..But highly unlikely consdering the last PC game I played was CS 1.6 I did however managed to get Battlefield 1942 and 12 command and conquer games for a tenner here. Looking forward to bashing on those when I've got the time!

Edit: FPS are generally way better on PC anyway, I'm just much more used with a controller than a mouse.
