While it seems to be in the Warrior category, it levels up faster if you use The Thief Stone (one of 13 Guardian Stones). So, this pretty much means that the Thief class has 7 skills, and the Warrior class only has 5. They need to balance this by doing one of two things:
1.) Combine the Lockpicking and Pickpocketing skills into one skill (since they are useless by themselves anyway) that can be simply called "Thief", and then move the Archery Skill over to the Thief class. Then, give the Warrior a brand new kind of skill that is not the same as One-handed or Two-Handed.
2.) Simply reclassify the Archery skill as a Warrior Skill, not a Thief skill, so that way, all 3 classes will have a balanced amount of skills (6 each). Although if you ask me, Archery sounds like it does belong to the Thief Class.
And don't tell me to go to the Lover's Stone.
Why is this unlockable BEFORE "Dragon Armor" smithing? The materials to make Daedric Armor is even harder to find because Daedra are much more rarer to find than Dragons are (I only found 2 Daedra hearts in 14 hours while I found 17 Dragon Bones and 10 Dragon Scales in only 3 hours). They need to fix this in one of two ways:
1.) Switch places of the perks of both Daedric Smithing and Dragon Armor.
2.) Make Dragon Bones and Dragon Scales much more rarer to find on Dragons, and make Daedric Armor and Weapons weaker than Dragonscale or Dragonplate Armor and Weapons. EDIT: I realize that I do NOT have to have the Dragon Armor perk for my Heavy Armor build. That can be for my Light Armor build.
==Dawnguard DLC: Crossbows==
Choosing the Vampire side (aka, Volkihar Vampire Clan) will prevent you from accessing any means of making Crossbows or the Bolts for the weapon. I complain about this is because being a Stealth character benefits more from choosing the Vampire Clan side due to certain effects given (like for example; Nightstalker's Footsteps and Vampire's Seduction because of vampirism).
Also, since Archery is classified as a Thief skill, a Crossbow is best for your stealth kills, but you have to join the Dawnguard which is more suited for Warrior-type or Battlemage-type character builds (as far as quests and rewards go) to get Bolts. They need to do one of two things:
1.) Provide an alternate means of obtaining Bolts other than scavenging for some off of Dwenmer machines (like being able to steal schematics from the Dawnguard).
2.) Allow Bolts to be sold from merchants like the "Drunken Huntsman".
Also, if you can include Dragonbone weapons, why not allow Crossbows the same thing? And all other upgradable versions as well, like a Steel, Glass, Ebony Crossbow and so on.
While I do appreciate that the Werewold has it's own perk tree now, why did Bethesda decide that only the Vampire Lord can transform and revert as many times as it wants? Being a Werewolf is slightly inferior just because of this. They should allow a Werewolf user to transform and revert as much as they want (much like the Vampire Lord). EDIT: I realize now that there a ring in the game that has this function...
==Children in Skyrim==
Why are there only Nord children? What about Dark Elf kids, Argonian, or Khajiit kids? Hell even Orc kids too.
Rather than just provide new armor and other items in DLC, why not add some more fun quests to do? Or better yet... allow us the ability to CREATE quests and post them for other users to download?
Oblivion had this, but not Skyrim? I want to be able to fight with a different combinations of creatures of my choosing and get coins and other goodies for the effort. And maybe even being able to decide to pit certain enemies against one another and see who wins (my first one will be 3 Giants vs 1 Dragon and 4 Dragon Priests).
Remember when you found Deepscorn Hollow in Oblivion? Or maybe a secret cave beneath the ocean floor where it held a special item for a Daedra? I never once went underwater for anything. No quests involved it as far as i know (other than finding a Quill), and the only thing I found underwater was seaweed. Perhaps there can be a Questline for a Thief/Assassin build where someone is living in a secret place under the ocean, and they want to form a new organization, and you obviously help do that.
