When they want you to choose where to take the fire... to the mania or dementia side. Save there, then pick one. Get the achievement, make ANOTHER save and then load your previous save and pick the other. This way, you can play all the way through the other one if you like. Don't know if there's a difference yet. Just completed the dementia side and didn't save beforehand... but I had another save just after beating the game so I've got a beefy character all ready. Armor gives him 100% chameleon and I just went in the door, killed the gatekeeper without any problems and then walked right in. No bone arrows, no tear-soaked hankies, just my trusty daedric shortsword.

Well how far into the Sherograth quests is that cuz I've only just done the Xedilian dungeon stuff? Is it toward the end of getting the Shivering Isles achievements?

Ok, so on top of one of the houses in the Crucible, there is a note and a key. The note says that there is a stash of good shit hidden in an urn and sunken in the sewage near the back of Bernice's Dive. Anyone have any clue as to where Bernice's Dive is?

EDIT: Spartan found it, it's behind Bernice's taphouse inside a broken crate. Nothing great in it though...just make sure you take the sweetcakes because they are used in another side quest...

Oh god, Shivering Isles was a very short story and the ending sucked, I hope they make another download for Hermaeus Mora realm for another 250 Gamerscore and they better put the download for 3400 Microsoft points because I love spending M points.

Shivering Isles was, no, IS amazing. The sheer size of the island is surprising at first, as Bethesda says, about 1/4 the size of Cyrodill.

After completing the SI main quest line, and getting a total of 1250 Gamerscore in Oblivion, I found it took me around 72 hours to total 100%, with about 2-5 hours of messing around. SI has definetely rekindled my Oblivion fondness and I will put another 30-40 hours into it before retiring my copy to a friend or Gamestop.

If you like oblivion, get this expansion.

OK I'm sorry but the last few words of that almost made me want to punch a baby.... I don't know anyone in their right mind who could say that.

Can I travel between Shivering Isles and Cyrodiil? And where in SI can I find a shop who sales "strong potion of healing" and stuff like that?

For all with questions, it's best to look HERE first.

Website I found with information about pretty much anything. Might still be a few things missing because SI is still new, but good nonetheless.

Strange I bought the game, but when I try and load my character it says "loading new content please wait" and then it stops and keeps me at the starting screen.

I dont know about the strong potion of healing, except I believe I found some somewhere in the Imperial District of Cyrodiil ages ago.
Travel between both realms is an option whenever you wish to transcend from one to the other.

So i was thinking now that there is a FORUM instead of just a shiv isles thread. are the admins still going to be locking new threads posted in this forum? personally i think its easier reading new threads that skimming through pages and pages of one thread.

i could be wrong, just a suggestion

You have a patch issue! You will have to remove your download and then play ESO while logged on so it will update with the new patch.

Ok, so I popped Oblivion into my x box so i could finish it off and it said there were updates that needed to be downloaded so I let it do its thing. Now it added 250 extra points onto my gamerscore with all this shivering isles stuff, which i'm never gonna purchase or play so how can i delete these"added" achievements so it quits messing up my completion percentage? It also did this with Army of Two by adding 100 points and Fifa Street 3, however, the Fifa one is back down to 1,000 again...

I was gutted that I didn't make a save before the decision part. Not going to bother with the last achievement for the other side.

I finished the original 1k on Oblivion just a few days ago and I'm wondering, if I buy the GotY Edition and use the GotY edition disc, is there anything (bad) that'll happen? Will my saves still be there? Or do I have to start a new character?

Don't buy the GOTY edition, just buy the expansion pack used from Gamestop, take it home and save it, then return it. GOTY is the same as doing this, the Shivering Isles still have to be saved to the HDD from a separate disc, then you need the first disc to play it. If you're heart-set on the GOTY, then your saves will still be there, but it's really not neccessary to do all that.

I didn't know where exactly to post this, but I just wanted to point out that the Shivering Isles Expansion only costs 1200 MSP not 2400.
