. from my point of view the best mix-in class for a Sorc in D&D ever was and still be: 2 or 3 Pal levels (without a party and capped at L20 just 2) adding levels of "Arcane Scolar" should be quite powerfull for the later levels: e.g. an aasimar PAL 2 - SORC 8 - AS 10 as I'm quite yet not that famila...

you are right - the complete Umbra equipment weights 186,8 100STR - 30STR(spell) = 70STR x 5 - 100(burden) = 250 ...so it would only work with minimum -43 STR and 100 burden - should have a look what you need for that kind of spell... ...so -80 STR AND 100 burden for a few seconds should do it again...

didn't know...

but with (82[color="Blue"]-30[/color])*5[color="blue"]-100 [/color]= 160

...ok - 160 might be just enough for a heavy weapon and a few pieces of heavy armor... (most of them aren't all heavy)

...but even umbra (very heavy) wasn't affected by this spell! :eek:

absorb magicka - no you can't see it, but you might guess...

...caster will certainly have a good amount at the beginning - fighter not...

...and if magicka is calculated correctly, absorb magicka will hurt caster in two ways!

Just to point out that silverdragon72 hit the nail on the head. Sacks of grain (the ones that initially hold five of either wheat/rice/corn etc.) never respawn and are safe places to put items in.

...always save 2 times before you exit the game...

...on my PC Oblivion has a good chance to crash, while leaving the game to windows and in this case the last save is always lost - but the 2nd last is almost always (99%) ok!
