    Came across this build yesterday.  Was not liking the build I was in so tried this one. 

    I'm leaning to a few adaptations on this: doing away with archery and using runes and bolts (fire, ice) for my ranged attacks to draw them in.  I'm going heavy on runes.  To that end, I'm taking the archery points and putting them into destruction for fire and lightning (fire to fight the undead/vampire blight; lightning for renegade mages...which tie into the lore of the build (things hurting Skyrim).

    I wish there were enough points for silent casting but that would almost make it a rune master build.

    Big question: Damage mitigation in melee?  I'm usually only taking 1-2 hits but boy they hurt.  (This coming from someone that always plays conj/dest mage or archer/assassin and never get into melee.

    Without a shield, recommendations to mitigate damage?

    All images have been restored for this build. While I try my best to keep the formatting as close to the original as possible, there are some unavoidable differences as a result of differing platforms... for this I apologize.

    Also, please feel free to remove the 'Restored' banner at the end of the build--I put it there as a courtesy to let the reader know that the build has been worked on by somebody other than its original creator without his or her knowlege.

    ShinJin,

     

    Thanks for restoring my build. I never saved it anywhere else, and I thought it had been lost forever. I'm so happy to see it again.

     

    Sincerely,

    The Grim Shepherd
