    Okay, I gotta ask.

     

    I've loved this build ever since I first saw it but what are the recommended stat upgrades for it? Like health, mana, stamina?

    Thank you for popping in, Thuri :) I imagine she smells of lavender and honey. I went through so many versions of this character before things fell into place and at one point alchemy was a main skill, so her scent was something which I'd thought way too much about :D But yes! I think Enchanting is still a skill that can be interpreted in many different ways or used to convey more subtler themes than sim ply soul trapping. Going right back to Children of the Sky in which book it is said that Nords wear the tongues of their enemies that hold speech like an enchantment, the soul is attributed to different things by different cultures, be it light or breath or whatever. Fun to be had with lore and interpretation, as always :)

    Mmm, lavender and honey, nice, such a girly scent))) All this Nord stuff sounds very alien to me, it's something I will probably never understand, but you describe it in such a fascinating way that it appears very interesting and beautiful. I would even want to give this fine lady a playthrough, if only she wasn't so unfathomably Nord)))

    @Drbigt haha, you're the second person to ask that in as many days, it seems :D Thanks for dropping in. Here's a link to a discussion we had about stats, my thoughts are a bit better articulated there: https://tamrielvault.com/groups/topic/view/page/1/group_id/3/topic_id/8427 If I had to be nailed down to an answer, I'd suggest something like max stamina 250 - 300, and about a 3/1 ratio to magicka/health. But there is a huge caveat there - I put them where needed quite organically. If I played through Bleak Falls and felt I needed more health, then into health my next level up would go. If I played through Fort Amol and wished I had more magicka, into magicka my points would go. This build is setup so that our Heal Another is also used to deal damage, and that damage is based on our max magicka. Too much into magicka and it could become OP quickly, so it's best judgement really.

    Phil Paws with the Nord build! It's good to see you getting onto the build scene. Seriously well thought out - and I love the lore that's heavily infused in the overall character.
