    Thanks Ricardo! The longhammer is awesome! Making the choice to enchant it is really painful because it works so well with elemental fury. I was going to mention this in the build but a necromage vampire would achieve a scorching 155% increased attack speed with the longhammer, very nasty piece of kit!

    I love this build.


    My only question is why an Orc? Did that have something to do with the lore that I missed, or is that just me?

    Also, there's a ruin just outside Riften that has some pretty easy-to-get Ancient Nord Armor. I forget it's name, but it's in the center of some mountain formation, I think.

    No lore on this build really!

    Orc because:

    • They look AMAZING in ancient armor
    • They look AMAZING eating corpses
    • Their racial power allows you to survive tough early missions like Alftand

    Wow, this one really has me interested.

    I'm glad I didn't delete the email for it, we've had so many spammy crap builds I've been just deleting them to narrow down my email count!

    Wow a unique playthrough that I was just starving to use! Thanks for this!

    How do you bastard keep coming up with such great builds! I'm jealous... -cries- Ok serious now, very very VERY awesome build, i love it (: I agree that orcs look great in Ancient Nord Armor, and i like the idea of feeding yourself to heal while still being able to wield your mighty twohander. I'm looking forward to the Duskbreaker and the perkspread. The only sad thing is, for a nasty abomination like the Revenant, you can only use the clean Ancient Nord Armor.... If there only was a way you could get the real Draugr Deathlord look... Those are all black and dirty, a perfect match for the Revenant... Well maybe someone can make a mod for it? (: Well conclusion: Awesome build, i love it and a like from me +1 And still i'm jealous... T.T

    Looks awesome, and I'm really glad to learn about the Dwarven Smithing perk. That's really good to know. I am really tempted to stall my Knight and play this, because it just looks FUN.

    Lookin good, I didn't know about the Dwarven Smithing for Honed Draugr weapons either until I did my Mabrigash playthrough! Actually makes them very viable!

    As for the dwarven ingot collecting, I found I got utterly ridiculous amounts (as in 350 upgraded dwarven bows ridiculous) from the Markarth ruin and the proceeding to raid the Dwemer Museum.

    I'd never really used the Targe of the Blooded, even in a playthrough I thought to get it as soon as I was tough enough. I didn't know that the bleed damage stacked, so thanks for pointing that out!

    And I really like how you've avoided magic entirely, I always find on characters like my Commander who use a bit of everything my stats are spread a little too thin for my liking. Great work once again, I tip my crown to you sir!

    Targe of the Blooded + warm bowl of Veg Soup = KILL ALDUIN!

    Not avoided magic entirely, he still likes raising the dead! This builds very well prepared to create 'god' thralls in the later levels. I'm a couple of levels off 100 Conjuration, I think a couple of steel horned bandit chiefs would look good in his horde, i'll enchant their gear up a bit and tear it up!

    Ive never been to these Markarth ruins, i'll have to check them out sometime, this build already  visits the markarth hall of the dead early on so may even make it part of the build. Dwarven bows FTW since smithing was patched. Cheers mate!
