    Hey,

    Pretty much just wondering if any of the downloadable content is worth it?

    I was thinking of the pirate ship, and the wizards tower? I just purchased 2100 points, and grabbed Geo wars... not sure about this stuff :)

    Depends on your point of view on this. None of them are anything special imo.

    Horse Armour - Crap, nuff said.

    The Orrery - Total waste of time, don't bother. You'll finish this in under 8mins.

    The Wizards Tower - Not even a quest, just another house, but it's quite stunning and worth a look. It's in the middle of no where though, so using it as a main house wouldn't be a good idea. Very well designed.

    Theives Den - Another short quest. Raid a cave, kill 5-8 bad things and you get a ship with npcs you can hire...great. This is a good map for rogue chars like thieves.

    and coming soon Mehrune's Razor. I gave up on the content, none of them aside from Wizzy Tower actually impressed me at all. I was expecting some new enemies but nothing yet. Nice to see them producing ingame content and making users who can't even finish the game to wait for a patch :/

    I bought the orrery and wizards tower (on PC). Neither will install. £2 down the drain.

    A game of this complexity means it'll have a lot of bugs here and there. Some bugs affecting people, while others aren't affected. With the amount of quests Oblivion is packing, there'll be a lot of 'broken' quests.

    I couldn't finish the fighters guild because of one broken quest, which the patch (wherever that is) fixes. In the end, I gave in and backed up my main char, and made a new one and redid the entire fighters guild again to get my last two achivements.

    I've still got two broken quests in my journal where I'm meant to find a persons body in a dungeon but he/she isn't there, because I cleaned out that dungeon prior to obtaining the quest.

    I've got two broken quests - the house in Skingrad (think the guy I need to talk to fell off the bridge to the castle!), and a Dark Brotherhood quest where I have to kill a master of hand to hand combat in Bruma - just can't find him. :(

    I gather from the replies that people dont really think it is hugely worth buying any of the extras then?

    Hmmm... That ris kind of a shame :(

    I like the horse armour - at least you can find your horse quickly if it's stabled. :)

    They're nothing that special thats all. Just something someone has come up with by playing with the construction kit for a few days, to put it lightly. Basically some of these quest downloads are much shorter then the ingame quests which leaves you annoyed. The only download I recommend at the moment is the Wizzy Tower.

    Down the trapdoor into the basement, under the pile of cloth/linen.

    None of the downloads will really change the game, however, if you want to see something different it's worth it for a few quid. It's not expensive, which is a bonus.
