    One of the most unique build i've seen. Good work Mason. Keep it up

    Hey Mason, I love this build! Just started it earlier and i'm having a blast so far. Just one question though; which is used more out of two-handed and axe/shield? And which is used for which situations? I love how you've incorporated two different melee styles and yet still keep it perk-friendly though.

    On a side note, will this be updated anymore with special moves and the like, like your other builds?

    Thanks Oliver, I actually really enjoyed this playthrough, i got to use some really cool gear!

    Ive got one more update to add which is the Revenants primary weapon ive dubbed 'Duskbreaker', a parody (and nemisis) of the Dawnbreaker sword. I'll hopefully have it up tonight if the artwork pleases me.

    I used one handed draugr weapons and the targe till i was around level 25 before i began integrating two handed weaponry, ancient nord armor is squishy at lower levels so the lord stone is essential to fill in the gap in your defense (as is a shield). I put every point into health and i noticed by around level 27-30 i just simply started out-tanking everything because my health was so high.

    Mutilate!! is this builds only real special move, if you combine the targe of the blooded with a veg soup you can cream anything with a barrage of shield bashes(even without block perks).

    Silly me derping around, I just read the build and completely forgot about conjuration -_- Well that's one that only requires little magicka to be effective, especially once you get thralls!

    I think you should rename the special ability to "Huh huh huh," said in a guttural Orcish voice. I can just picture the Revenant giving an evil laugh as he pounds his shield into his enemy every time the enemy starts to recover.

    Awesome, that special sounds especially badass, especially with how painful the targe looks! i've kept them at a pretty even pace with more of a focus on two-handed (your volkihar made me fall in love with their sheer power). I think I might do it the other way round to you, I only play on adept so I think the Lord Stone should be enough for defense.

    I suppose conjuration would begin at about 20-ish with a wolf and a soul trap for easy dead thralls? i'm looking forward to see if I can get two draugr deathlords following me around!

    if he is already smelly and (He gets plenty of negative attention from guards and they will often comment on the stench from his armor and his corpse breath)...

    wont the nice mace of Molag Bal make him even more vicious? (even more negetive attention lol) kinda completes the hate...

    You know, ive yet to use that item at all Thrall! Its true that the mace would suit the character nicely but my real passion was the draugr weapons for this character.

    The ghost doesn't want to spawn for me. Any ideas?

  • May 31, 2012

    The first time i did it i waited at Kjenstag ruins till after 8, the ghost would not spawn for me either....

    If i was you i would return to Morthal and wait till after 8pm, then save your game and walk from Morthal to Kjenstag ruins, the ghost should run out of the entrance, he's quick and you only have about a minute to kill him...
