    Alchemy for the Assassin

    Shadowstep's Guide for the Hidden - Alchemy for the Assassin

    Recently on my quest to master the art of the Assassin, I have been trying to delve further into the arts of Alchemy and it's benefits.

    Although creating Potions is useful (the Potion of Invisibility great for a tight situation) I happen to find myself drawn more toward the Poisons.

Many other decisions were made to change Skyrim's system and differentiate with it's predecessors, and I was perfectly happy with all said decisions made.

    However! There is only one, that I will never let go... Acrobatics! In Morrowind and Oblivion, out of all the countless skills thrown into those games, that was the most awesome skill of them all! I couldn't tell you how much joy this had brought me when I was carefully leaping from spot to spot in the shadows, setting up …
