    Ha yeah I had a little mishap when I was clicking my tags to see some other builds. I think I fixed it b/c it's not showing up for me but if you still see it I'll take another look. I promise I'm not "that guy" who likes his own builds on purpose!

    I havn't yet done an Argonian or a two-handed fighter. I was looking to do something very unique. This build is exactly what I was looking for.

    This build is great! A bit long, but worth the read. I'm surprised you didn't take the Wind Walker perk in light armor for more stamina regen.

    In addition to the bandolier and quiver mods, what others are you using?

    Thanks for the feedback, and the like. Wind Walker makes a lot of sense and fits the theme, but I personally don't like wearing helmets. It's an aesthetic thing. But if you like them (or at least don't hate them like I do), definitely feel free to take it. I'm planning on adding a small "paths" section for around level 45 or 50 to encourage customization, and that perk will certainly be on at least one of those paths.

    As far as mods...if I listed them all, this comment would be the size of the build, and that's saying something. Here are the ones that I found myself using the most with this character:

    1. SkyRe: Overhauls everything, but most importantly perks; also makes high-level play more entertaining

    2. Tactless Toxins: A ridiculous variety of unique, fun, and powerful poisons & potions. Perfect for this character, and not OP since they require some rare ingredients to create.

    3. TK Dodge: Like you'd expect, adds a dodge mechanic to combat. Great for a quick warrior like the Vanguard.

    4. Camping Lite: Nothing complicated here: just lets you craft a portable tent, that you can fast travel to. Great for the roleplay I chose as a wandering warrior. Bonus points if you put it in a swamp!

    Okay...I'm planning an update for this but I'm not sure when I'll find the time. I'm going to put the agenda for the update here and you guys can tell me what you think of the planned changes, or add suggestions. Of course, this could also be one of those awkward posts where no one responds, and I guess I'm OK with that, too. Here goes:

    1. Shorten the wordy parts, hopefully keeping the message and voice intact. Big-time cuts to transpire in the Intro and Roleplay sections especially.

    2. Combination of the Method (gameplay) and Tips section, and an overall emphasis on the tactics as the most unique part of the build, in addition to the poisons and mobility.

    3. Addition of a few new sections, with the goal still being a shorter product than the current one. They would be (1) a sort of "mini-paths" section entailing some of the different directions you can take the Vanguard after level 37, and (2) a Mods section for my PC brothers and sisters. Probably mostly brothers, but never assume, right?

    So...does this sound good? Bad? Suggestions are of course welcome.

    Nice build +1
    Just a question, woudn't the item Predator's Grace fit in this build perfectly?
    It give stamina regen if you got a nice ammount of it and it gives muffle :D
    Also what about Derkeethus? you got yourself a nice little Argonian war-band :D ?

    Trying this one out atm so thanks for the awesome build
