Marina’s really going places, and some of those places lead to nowhere. On our journey north towards the Shrine of Boethiah, we realize we are lacking a proper offering. Yet it seems that our Oblivion Portal senses have dwindled. And so the quest to steal a Dremora’s heart is on!
In this let’s play/walkthrough of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, I intend to get 100% game completion while playing on the hardest difficulty. I will do every quest, clear every dungeon and master all skills. I have made a custom set of rules for this challenge which will make the task more daunting, and I will avoid abusing powerful exploits. My character is a Breton battlemage named Marina Mistfire.
Note that I am not planning on including the Shivering Isles & Knights of the Nine DLC into the challenge as of now. The same goes for the other offical addons released by Bethesda, like Frostcrag Spire and Thieves Den. I have the Shivering Isles installed and activated, but that’s just to avoid issues with missing textures in the Niben Bay. The main focus right now is on vanilla Oblivion, and that has to be completed 100% before I do any addons.

This challenge wouldn’t be possible without the aid of the Unoffical Elder Scrolls Pages ►
The conditions for 100% completion will vary a bit from person to person, so that’s why I’m calling this the “Champion of Cyrodiil Challenge”, so I myself can set the criteria. Feel free to try this yourself in your own playthrough, or modify the rules to fit your own playstyle.
The goals for this challenge are as follows:
* Finish all quests
* Master all skills
* Find all map markers
* Clear all locations at least once
* Shut all Oblivion Gates
* Own all horses
* Upgrade all houses
* Invest in all stores
* Collect all Nirnroot plants
* Collect all skill books
* Slay all unique enemies in Cyrodiil (like the Giant Mudcrab)
For more detailed information about this goal, see this link ►
* Can’t fast travel
* Can’t use big exploits or bugs
* Can’t increase skills at trainers
* Must play on max difficulty at all times
I do use a few mods, but none that give me an unfair advantage, or change the game drastically.
