Skyrim Special Edition - Becoming a God

Things to Do In: Skyrim Special Edition - Becoming a God

Talos is a legend in Skyrim Special Edition. He was a mortal who was so awesome that he became a god. He did this by living a life of honor, power, and immense combat skill. Matt, Geoff, and Gavin can show you how to become a god another way though. Spoilers! It involves sitting around and drinking potions. So ya know, less action packed than how you're supposed to do it.

    The character looks like Sauron and probably is invincible like him. Since he mentioned the ring in one of the steps, it must be the ring of power.

    For once in my life, I can check off that I actually did a things to do task.  Though for people thinking of doing it, beware.  Don't even consider using the exploit past 3 potions in your normal gear.  Skyrim is all about slowly leveling up and increasing the difficulty to keep the game challenging and fun.  God mode is fun and all, but it really is just a "Thing to do".  You'll ruin your experience if you run around with it in your main game because you'll get bored with the lack of challenge.  However, for some things you can get away with using the exploit, like using it for fortify pickpocket so you don't have to result to quick saving and loading (Which 75% of players do).

    Am I missing something? When I disrobe and rerobe the percentages dont change. Do all pieces have to have the enchant? Or do the restoration potions have to be that strong?

    My game can't handle it. Every time I try to place an enchantment on something with a potion on it immediately crashes. Oh well, keep me from cheesing it too hard I guess. At least going legendary on alchemy over and over is a good way to get perk points, since making a single potion got me all the way from 15 to 100.

      If it's crashing when you place the enchantment then the percentage may be to high. That's what happened to me on my original game. I amplified it so much that my game crashed whenever i tired to apply it.

    Ahh, yes, this brings back memories. This was how I broke my original character on 360. I accidentally did it to the the point where it rolled over into the negatives and then foolishly saved over all of my saves from before it happened. Good times, good times, lol.

      You use the alchemy boost to make overpowered smithing and enchanting potions, then use those to create the god armour. The armour you wear is just to provide a base for the alchemy boost the resto pots give you.

    I can definitely see why a lot of people would call this breaking the game. But as someone who has never played more than 30 minutes of skyrim, this legitimately makes me wanna jump back in. Everyone said I could be a mage, or a warrior or w.e. But no one ever told me I could be a god. I would abuse the crap out of that power.

      Kirito was just a kid who grinded a lot. Any long time Skyrim player could match him. Kirito could actually take damage. 

      This is more like Yui. 

      Immortal object, 9 outs the damage, does whatever they want.

    This seems like a useful tool to get through the grind of the early game when restarting again. But, instead of insane values I'll just stick with a bow with 300 damage. Moderation is key with these things.

    I've heard of breaking a game over your knee before, but I think this is more akin to breaking it over your toenail.   I spent hours doing something like this with the eternal circle of alchemy>enchanting, but I never knew it was as easy as unequiping/reequiping...

      If I understood correctly he only unequipped and re-equipped to apply the effects of the potions, I think a bug was preventing the values from updating or something.

    • Dainyl FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      My understanding is that it is a bug within a bug. Bug #1: drinking a Fortify Restoration potion will also temporarily improve the alchemy enchants on all of your armor. Bug #2: changing the strength of an enchant on armor you are wearing won't take effect until you remove the armor and put it back on. So, you drink the potion, remove the now buffed armor, put the armor back on before the potion runs out, and you'll still have the boosted effects once the potion wears off as long as you don't take the armor off again.

    so a things to do in skyrim that involves something people have known about the game ever since it came out over 5 years ago? no offence, but why are they allowing matt to make content?

    • Hitchenator1

      7 months ago

      it's a thing that you can do in skyrim which isn't part of the design within the game that not everyone will have known about  and they didn't have a video for it. It also makes an interesting bit of content that is fairly easy for them to make. It makes a lot of sense to do a video on this.
