    What I love about this site is getting ideas from other peoples builds and adapting them to my style. But this is perhaps first time I'm gonna take the whole build and play as is +1

    Very cool Ponty. +1

    I actually have a character similar to this that I am running a playthrough with (unarmored sw/brd mage lvl 13), but you have given some good mechanics that I can emulate.

    Insta like. So this was the char  in ur nachardak speedrun guide. Cool build and also, this was posted TODAY. I usually notice your builds a few weeks later.

    +1 from me!

    Amazing build. After reading some of the little tricks you used, like Whirlwind Sprint and assasination or the Bend Will two-word shout duration, I immediately checked them out on some of my playthroughs. I now have one very happy Swordsman.

    It's a wonderful mix between the Paladin, one of my favourite builds, the Nightingale and the Bladesman.

    I've always found the Bladesman to be a bit too squishy for my liking, I keep running into dragons and they have all the fun! This allows me to move past that a little.

    Unarmored sword and board is a really cool style, nice work Ponty! I've been thinking of trying a character with cultist gear because it actually looks pretty sweet. +1, keep up the good work =]

    1. I believe you forgot the 'Thanks for watching, leave a comment here or on the Skyrim Blog' annotation. 
    2. Whoever made that dragon aspect sound mod is an absolute DISGRACE to modders as that sound effect change is APPALLING what in the name of god ponty gave you the urge to download THAT. 
    3. Perhaps you could add a little word wall location bit, that tells you the location of some of the prodigy's chosen shouts. 
    • Whirlwind sprint - Dead Mans respite (Bards college), Volskygge (Along with Kavozeins fang, Dragon Priest location), High Hrothgar 
    • Become ethereal - Ustengrav (Main quest), Ironbind Barrow, Lost valley redoubt (Behind the Leap) 
    • Dragon Aspect - Raven Rock Mine (Dragon Priest Location), Black Book Waking Dreams, Temple of Miraak 
    • Dismay - I have no Friggin idea 
    • Aura Whisper - No idea 
    • Bend Will - Saerings Watch, Black Book Epistolary Acumen(Given to player by Hermaus Mora), Skaal village (Also given to player by Hermaus Mora.)

    Also is it OK if I use Miraak's sword and gear?

    Mask has fortify magicka, the cuirass is pre-enchanted with spell absorb and you could replace the boots and gloves with thalmor gear and enchant those. It could be like you take up your former masters mantle and wear his mask and wield his sword as trophies. 

    EDIT AND TIP: Miraak's mask, gloves and boots can be worn without blocking mage armor, the Dragon aspect word wall in Waking Dreams can be reached before the final mission by reading the book, fighting through all five(Or was it 6) chapters then grabbing the wall then leaving. 

    EDIT AND TIP: When you absorb Miraak's soul it says 'Dragon Soul Absorbed'. You actually get 10 Dragon Souls. Perfect for respec-ing perks and for fueling shouts especially as this character is shout heavy.
