The Right Weapon Array

Given the complex combat and wide array of enemies in Oblivion, it is vital that you keep an array of weapons available for your early encounters. Enchanted weapons show up fairly often after level 5 or so, so be sure to keep a fire-based enchanted weapon along with a shock-based, magicka affecting, and simple un-enchanted weapon on your person (an Ease Burden spell from Deetsan in the Cheydinhall Mages Guild can help with the weight). If you find yourself not making much of a dent with a fire-casting weapon, switch around until you find the weakness of your current enemy. These few more points of damage per hit often make the difference between life and death!

Defend Oblivion Melee Attacks Easily

Feeling kinda frightened by the big, evil, melee warrior coming towards you? Well, just find some rocks (if you can get outside) or some other object and jump onto it. You can then stand on the top of it, hurling fireballs and shooting arrows at the poor foe, who'll be unable to defend himself.

I'm not sure if this issue has been resolved in the forums, but I have noticed a few questions pertaining the horse,(Shadowmere), given to you by Lucien LeChance upon completion of specific Dark Brotherhood mission. The Question: Where does Shadowmere reappear when he runs off? Answer: Fort Faragut. right outside the front door where you first found him.

Worship Yourself

After you become Sheogorath and kill Jiggalag, go to Sheogorath's Shrine in Cyrodiil. You can 'worship' the statue, and Haskill will talk to you, saying "Praying to yourself, my Lord? That's not a good sign. Or perhaps it is. Prince of Madness, and all that."

Don't wanna Fight??

If you are low in health and you happen to pick a fight with someone not meaning to. Just run into a bar, inn, or a town. what ever is trying to kill you will be killed in a group of people. Then when they use there spells you can see how strong they are. And when they die you can take there stuff and it's not stealing.

Fun little thing

Okay, I figured this out on about my 3rd save file on Oblivion. When you first go to Cloud Ruler Temple with Martin and Jauffre, walk to the door, open the console, and type in "Unlock". Then, open the door quickly, and open the console back up, then type in "Killall". Jauffre, Martin, and Captain Steffan will only go unconscious, and you can resurrect the rest after you do this. Now if you look at the stairs, you will see the Redguard Cyrus flying off the steps. He usually hits the wall on YOUR left, making a thud. He will wake up, and as I said before, you can resurrect everyone else.

Testing hall chests

Not everyone will crash. I run oldblivion and it doesn't crash. Just needs to load, because it has LOTS of items in each. If others crash, sucks for them, don't be afraid too though.

Shivering Isles/Oblivion

If you have already done the quests for Shivering Isles, and have become the Lord, taking Sheogorath's place, If you go to his Shrine in Cyrodil, he doesn't say anything to you, but Haskill does! He then proceeds to tell you your quest, but it's a funny little egg.
