Pickaxes are useless. However, you CAN go into some caves and randomly find silver/gold ore on the wall. Then approach it and “activate” it and you can mine some gold/silver ores.
Mines are unusual locations in Oblivion. They resemble caves but are slightly different and often smaller. Differences include: veins of ore, bandits, goblins, and usually more traps. They are unusual as there are only about 25 mines in Cyrodiil.
A pickaxe is an item that can be used throughout Skyrim to mine ore. Ore veins can be found in the wild or in underground caves. To activate, just aim the vein and your pickaxe will be automatically equipped and you’ll start mining the ore.
Once you have an item ready to throw, simply press the throw button and release it. If the prepared object is a weapon, it will be automatically equipped to you (you cannot hold a weapon while throwing another). The animation changes depending on whether the object is a weapon, shield, or other.
The main quest is to help the Blades restore a new Emperor and end the threat of the Gates of Oblivion. As you progress in this questline, the Gates of Oblivion will open across Cyrodiil. Once the main quest is completed, they will all be closed.
Ore veins will generally refill their ores after about a month (in game) when the area is marked as cleared. Otherwise it will be refilled in 10 days.

First, equip a melee weapon as usual. Then to equip a weapon in your left hand, hover your mouse over it in the inventory menu and press the block button (default: left mouse button). Voila! When dual wielding, grab and block as normal.
The simplest tactic is to block and hit. The recoil of the enemy hitting your shield will stun them long enough to land at least two hits (or dodge as mentioned above). Also an effective way is to block your enemy’s attack and attack them while moving around them.
Feather is an altering spell effect that temporarily increases the user’s maximum load. Magnitude is the additional unit of weight that the target can carry.
Oblivion has the best Elder Scrolls quests and stories (by far). Let’s start with something that few Elder Scrolls fans will resist. When it comes to quests and storytelling, Oblivion is a far better game than Morrowind or Skyrim.
It is possible to join this faction either temporarily or permanently during the Dagon Shrine quest (although the latter will prevent you from completing the main quest).
Focusing on the main objectives, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is approximately 27½ hours long. If you are a gamer who aspires to see all aspects of the game, you will probably spend about 184 hours to 100% complete it.
