Nerf Miraak's Staff (Skyrim: Dragonborn)

No spoilers here, just saying that the staff is much too powerful.

Overall I think Dragonborn gives us a few things I dont think we should have without a level requirement, because hot damn are some of these new things powerful.

Post edit:

I also must say, I am a huge fan of the Bloodskal Blade, its a wonderfully creative weapon with a fun to use effect.

What does it do?

The Staff

Rapid fire casts arcing globs of dark....stuff...

When that stuff lands it spawns tentacles that stagger and poison (damage/stamina drain) targets.

That sounds fucking cool.
Half the fun of Elder Scrolls is breaking the game, getting it pre-broken with fucking awesome tentacle magic is sweet.

I suppose so, but that combined with the "Bind Will" Shout, the game doesnt seem to have any challenges anymore.

Then dont use it. No really, if you think it makes the game too easy, then dont use it.

I think smithing makes the game too easy, so I dont use it, same with enchanting.

That's the whole fun of the ES games, to be able to do anything, from being super OP, to nerfing yourself into oblivion.

They wont ever nerf an item themselves, because how easy the game is has always, and will always, be in the player's hands.

Well, Miraak is the highest level NPC in the game (at 150). It only makes sense that his stuff will be super badass.

It doesn't seem terribly unfair. The game is almost designed to be broken. Getting 500 damage a strike from a 1 handed sword, firing cruise missiles from perfect stealth, doing up to 3,000 damage in a sneak attack and so forth. The game is rife with mechanics that can easily be exploited. Stealth + Archery, Illusion magic, stacking damage bonus on weapons etc.

I thought that honor went to the Ebony Warrior? Or was it just that they actually gave him PC-level perks?

This is a joke,right? You are asking for a nerf....to a weapon in a purely single player game? What would be the point of that? Not trying to be an ass here,I honestly don't know why you would want it nerfed. Let alone why you would ask on the escapist forums.

Then don't use those? I mean really, if Skyrim were an MMO then I think calls for nerfs would be appropriate but it's a single-player RPG. If you want more challenge then forgo the broken weapons and combos; the rest of us will continue to enjoy feeling like a tentacle flinging god of death.
