    Hey Chris, thanks for the like! I tried to tag it as 'Character Build Knight" but I foolishly forgot the quotation marks, thanks for pointing that out. I'm hearing a lot of interest in using heavier weaponry, so I'm going to update with a variant version that utilizes two handed.

    Not a fan of Two Steps From Hell then? Oh well, can't win 'em all =p

    Thanks for the compliment, getting the praise of the man with the axe is always a good sign xD

    Hm, you make a good point, I was already toying with the idea of releasing a two-handed variant so I'll go ahead and post that one as an addendum

    Whoops, sorry about that. I'm so used to having a lightning fast connection that it never occurred to me! D:

    Soo nice, and the song is one of my favourites of TSFH.

    A HUGE +1. Well done.

    Staves aren't consider evil, they're just not honorable for use in combat. A knight sticks to strict and traditional combat methods. In the Middle Ages, knights considered crossbows to be cheating when they were first invented. 

    I had said that all human races employ knights, which includs Bretons, but thanks for pointing that out, it's a good piece of information to make note of!

    I did explain them somewhat in the Smithing section. There's no single right answer, just use the best heavy armor and best weapons that you an forge or find while questing. It's all self-explanatory if you check the skills ares. I hope this helps!

    Thanks Reblazed, nice to see my work is appreciated!

    Very, very well presented. Some builds are awesome because they explore some profound gameplay synergy that isn't readily apparent without the right combination of skills, perks, gear, spells and so on, whereas others are awesome because the roleplay is strong enough to make anyone want to jump into that suit of shining armor no matter how basic or straightforward the gameplay is. This is a shining example of the latter (pun intended). We don't need advanced Atronach stones or Necromancer vampire combos to kick ass as a knight, and honestly the slight dabbling in Illusion is more than enough flavor to spice up the sword and board gameplay in a perfectly fitting manner. Easy +1 for the perfectly presented pure knight.

    Ah, but he is in the fallen knight section. They don't give a crap, they'll use a crossbow sneak attack with a poison and laugh =p

    Good idea about recommending some of the armor sets, I'll let people know what I personally enjoyed the most. Thanks for the suggestion!
