Default Oblivion

So I got a xbox 360, and borrowed Oblivion from my brother.
It's easier than Morrowind, I have to say, but mainly because of your fatigue, and how it doesn't diminish when running around. That increases your chances when in combat.

Found myself a katana (at the cloud ruler temple) and a dai-katana (hurrah).
But when I looked around on UESP.net, I found nothing about tantos and wakizashis in oblivion. Are there none???


Also, I did the Path of Dawn quest, and accidentally got Baurus killed. Is that okay? Was that supposed to happen? Or do I need him afterwards?

Ideed - there isn't a single tanto or wakizashis on the game. And the Akavari katanas and dai katanas available are the only katanas in the game with the exception of two, and a few enchanted items from sellers.

Simple rule in Oblivion - if you can kill it, it doesn't need to stay alive. Baurus would have probably died later on in the game - so don't fret

No tantos or wakizashis? Noooooo!

Yeah, but I'd like Baurus to stay alive, as it would fit my character more. I was wondering if he was 'supposed' to die there. If he was, reloading and trying again would seem useless...

Nah - if he lives through the sewers mission he gives you a book when you get return to the temple. And if you are a completionist like me you really need that book for 110%. :P Incidently - if you can get the emerors robes I'll be very impressed.

[spoiler=the Truth]And yes - it is[/is] possible. Just have to play around with a certain staff and a certain spell. Namely the staff of corruption and risen flesh (staff of worms)[/spoiler]

Mmh...
So what's the best way to keep him alive?
Going in yourself and tell him to go to the next floor to snipe?
Or just going in, leaving him at the door?

My brother told me about the lack of tantos and wakizashis on the phone, a few minutes ago, and he said there was akaviri armor to be found, if I wanted something to match the katanas. Checking UESP, I found nothing like it. I guess he made a mistake, and that it's not called 'akaviri armor' but something else. What armor could he be talking about then?

Go in yourself, and when the fighting starts attack whoever is attacking him.

He might be on about the blades armour - it's in the same place as the Katanas

With Baurus on the other side of the door, or with him on the bridge above?

No, he knew the blade armor. He was talking about something else...

The only armours in Vanilla oblivion are:

Fur
Leather
Chainmail
Elven
Glass
Iron
Steel
Dwarvern
Orcish
Ebony
Daedric
Imperial Legion
Blade
Dark brotherhood
Town Guard
[spoiler]Saviours Hide[/spoiler]

And none of those are Akavari, not even close.

Hell, even the Shivering isles armours aren't akavari.

Vanilla = non- game of the year?
It's the GotY edition I'm playing...

And none of those can be confused for 'akaviri armor' ? I'll have to call him again, me thinks...

The only one that could be remotely confused with Akavari armour is Blade. Or possibly Orkish.

And the two armours in Shivering isles definately don't and the KotN armour is Knight armour - no where near Samurais.
