My bad luck

Postby Wopps » Tue Apr 27, 2004 6:11 pm

I made an exquisite amulet have open 1-100 lock charges, and i tried to use it on mudan central vault (which is a 100 level lock) WOW I HAVE NO LUCK!!! (in RL and in-game) i would use the charges, then sleep for 24 hrs, then use the charges...on and on. I WENT THROUGH 130 IN GAME DAYS DOING THIS!!! and i didn't get the lucky 100 open once. I swear you never do. Has anyone ever gotten something like a "open 1-100 lock" thing to open a 100 lock? if you have PLEASE let me know.

Sorry, read the thread "no".. I kinda hit new thread on accident
What a wonderous love it is
To bind two souls in faith,
Chained completely together
With never a false word,
Weal and woe, wish and real,
Woven each together
From first kiss to last breath
First and last whispered in love

I did this (using a frost atronach soul I think), and it works like a charm each and every time. You need to be sure that you have set the magnitude from 100-100. I don't know if it made a difference, but just to be positive I rammed up the area slider as well. My unlocking amulet will open anything... :cool:

The magnitude of the spell will be determined by both your luck and enchant skill. If you have a low enchant spell its safe to say that a 1-100 item will rarely go above 50. If its just a spell then it all comes down to luck, but an item like that is affected by enchant too.

Yeah my Bloodthroes Key 'an exquisite ring' has open 100-100 on it. You shouldn't have made it 1-100 I don't think it's worth the money you saved. I also agree with Dark Master, your amulet will stay within the 30-70 cast range for open.
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel alright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.
I may be bad, but I feel good.

If you know where to look... it is not as though exquisite rings are in short supply.. I have a whole drawer full of exquisite rings and amulets.... :rolleyes:
And while an amulet that unlocks anything might not be the 'coolest' thing out there it is certainly amongst the most useful and convenient. ;) You don't need to worry about dragging around lock picks and you don't have to worry about finding/making scrolls.... Honestly, of all of the things I have had enchanted (have it done at a professional enchanter and ram up all the values to max), it is by far and away the most handy. :cool:

I just use a spell with my female Altmer, it barely makes a dent in my Magicka bar :rolleyes:

But if I use a character without that large amount of Magicka, I enchant an extravagant ring with the enchantment :p

[QUOTE=giles337]while we're on enchantments, is it possible to have a constant effect summon creature??[/QUOTE]

Yes. If the creature dies, simple re-equip the item. I once had a 'Staff of the black wrym' it was CE summon frost antronch on self. When it died, I just moved the mousewheel down one, and up one, and he was back.

ya... ekash's lock splitter is the most retarted scroll out there... be sure you get a ring that opens to an area of five or something, at leaset 3. ekash's locksplitter wont open anything because it has no range... blargh!!!!

@DW, you can make your own scrolls? how powerful can they be? anything like scroll of the windform etc?

No, but you can enchant paper, but you cant make a scroll, and btw, it does work wether or not it has a area range, my open spell has no range and it works fine :rolleyes:

it makes it easier... for instance a small locked chest on a chest is unreachable by a no range spell, but my range 4 spell unlocks 3 chests lined up next to eachother... its just makes things easier and has basically no effect on cost or charge. its worth it.
