Featuring: Oblivion Game Guide, Oblivion Atlas, Knights of the Nine Game Guide and Shivering Isles Game Guide.

Behold, our unofficial strategy guide to overwhelmingly gigantic The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. Here you will find everything you need to know about the game and was afraid to ask anywhere else.

First, some technical stuff. As you may know from other texts about Oblivion, the game's world reacts to the player's progress and evolves with him. That means that you can actually beat the main quest without even bothering to do anything except it, 'cause if you don't level up your character, you'll be fighting some basic enemies over and over again to the very end. That leads to the fact that we can't actually point out how many or what type of enemies you will be facing in certain situations. These factors depend on your character's level. If you don't want to "loose" time on leveling up, go ahead and endlessly fight Scamps and basic Dremora soldiers.

We didn't cover the things that are pretty obvious in our guide. There's no point in telling you exactly what to do in each dungeon, so we stick to the essentials. Hey, you're a gamer, you shouldn't feel like a fish out of water when you're deep underground surrounded by skeletons, now should you?

There are a lot of bugs in this game. Bugs that keep you from completing certain quests, make objects disappear or NPCs talk rubbish. Save often, that's the best advice we can give you. Every quest is beatable under certain circumstances and bugs seem to appear randomly, so you might not have a problem at all when you beat them the second time round.

Ok, HELP ME PLZ! I can not get out of the part with the gates... I CAN'T ESCAPE!!!!!

I have a question... I've been working my way through all the guilds, and am on the main quest, running around gathering troops for Bruma. Suddenly, it tells me I've stolen from the thieve's guild and the mage's guild both as I'm about to enter an Oblivion gate. What the hell is happening?

As for the Vampire Cure quest, it's a notorious bug occurring on the GotY Edition, whereas the witch won't take your bloodgrass. I haven't tried this myself, but I guess I'll have to since I'm currently replaying the game and have just begun said quest. However, according to the Unofficial Elder Scrolls Wiki, on the European or Australian version of the game you can just change the system language to German or Spanish respectively, then load the game as usual and you should be able to hand the bloodgrass to the witch. Then save the game (I'd suggest in a different file, just in case...), change the system language back to whatever you prefer and you're good to go. For other version you'll need to get hold of a copy of the original game, stack your inventory (especially any Shivering Isles items) in a container in a house of yours, save the game, load it from the original disc, hand the bloodgrass to the witch, save again, reload from GotY disc and you should be able to play as usual, though upon entering the Shivering Isles all missions will be reset, so you'll have to replay them. Also, all journal entries will be gone together with any Shivering Isles items you didn't/couldn't stack in your house. Yay!

You can't kill ghosts with normal weapons, enchanted or silver weapons will do, though. I think Elven weapons should do the trick as well. Destruction magic also works

simgams 07/10/2012 08:21

I have goten to level 4 and just had the brother hood visit. After i leave the inn my dark elf starts to burn up. U can see him smokeing and his body flashes red. Is there a problem with the game or do i need to go someplace to get him healed.

I was an old programmer and studied the game to figure out how their create the levels and skills rise. I created an excel spreadsheet with instructions, that willl allow people, if the instructions are followed, to create PERFECT characters in Oblivion IV, that is with no magic articles nor spells, you can have all the major attributes and Major skills at 100, including LUCK. Then add-ons like the Ring of Vipereye can be forced on your hand as a 3rd ring where you can usually only wear 2, this one is fixed permanently. All the tricks are explained, but I see no where here where I can attach a simple MS Excel file? Herb

i wanted to say thx to u'all for putting this guide together, it helped me in many different ways. i had another previous save on a different hard drive, that now i feel i can just toss. at about 250 hours of game time i found this guide and it helped immensely. things i forgot, things i did wrong, things i was "oblivious to", lol, it saved me a lot of knuckle dragging. if u don't see me again for a few years it means i got skyrim.

There's some quests unlisted here like "Lich of Lost Boy Cavern" and others.

cuban plantain --> Actually we will probably post Skyrim guide in parts, but I'm afraid I can't give you any exact dates when they'll be ready.

FX-Toby 05/12/2011 22:47

there's an easier way to get the guide online rather then play and beat the hole game BUY THE GUIDE

cuban plantain 03/12/2011 00:37

They aren't going to make a guide unless they have completely beaten the game. That means every aspect. Thieves Guild, Dark brotherhood, Winterhold college, Stormcloak quest line, Imperial questline, misc. missions, etc It'll take a while

FX-Toby 20/11/2011 07:07

We Need A (Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim) Guide please. Thank You.

Hello I'm drew and need help regarding the ayleid ruin named Malada. To proceed I need some kind of key but don't know where to find it. I obtained the mapmarker for this ayleid ruin from a book I read not bought in the bookstore in the imperial city called the first edition. When I get to malada each time I proceed to kill the monsters inside and move on to the gate in which I need the key for. It is in a strange shape as I will now explain: it has an indentation that then has a plus sign I can see through to the next room. If you could help me regarding this matter I would be grateful.
