    I have tried merging some of your builds but your builds seem too perfect to mess with :)

    I will go back to my own builds when I am done enjoying your awesome ones. I have always been a fan of light armor and now that I see the benefits of using a silver sword with your sorcerer build, I see not reason not to go up the light side.

    If you combine smithing with light armor you miss out on the improvements to weapon damage but if you use your silver sword the problem is solved! I am thinking Enchanting/Smithing/Light Armor with Destruction mixed in to make your silver sword. You will eventually have the potential to have max armor with a kickass weapon. Any opinion on that Mason. (maybe I should post this somewhere else?)

    The sorcerer is a pretty heavy combatant mate, I didn't use smithing with that build and steel plate armor only just hit the 500's with six perks in heavy armor, lord stone and ebony flesh.

    Light armor would definitely be doable but you would have to push at smithing a little harder. Armor rating isn't everything when you're running such strong skills though so I expect it would work fine...

    Great build !

    I am playing it right now, lvl 51... I just neglect the necromancy branch, and instead perked the speech tree until merchant (Thalmors are good at speaking). Plus, if you are a Thalmor outcast, you will need your speechcraft to convince your former enemies (Blades, Imperials, etc). Also i did not take the master conjuration perk because dremora lords are just better than the Atronach thralls. instead i was going for the impact perk in destruction... just because I love to stagger dragons from afar. Neglecting necromancy allows for freely leveling Restoration. Necromaged Circle of Protection + the dremora lords and you laugh in the face of that draugr, except the dragon priests.

    Also, I just create an unenchanted Daedric sword in the atronach forge and enchant it with fire damage + absorb magicka (Valinor), because Altmers are so arrogant that they engage in melee mode when they are forced to (which is the case when you ran out of magicka). Right now I am using the aetherium crown with lord + atronach, and I am planning to take the atronach perk right away.

    It is a badass build, from lvl 1 to now. Great if you wanna wreak havoc throughout Skyrim :D

    As I said I love this build. I am curious if Varens or Mason ran this with a follower or not. I know its not necessary most of the time, but since I play on Master there are some times when a tough monster can destroy your summons (I did not use atronachs but I am assuming frost atronachs would help once you get them).

    I tended not to use the atronachs at all and preferred raising the dead bodies around me. And when you get Necromancy life seems much easier.

    I do use followers, but it is not really a follower: it is a servant :P So, I use followers as pack mules and meat shields (I really do not care if they die because of my fireballs lol). The Nemesis is still an altmer, despite the fact that she was betrayed by the Thalmor. Therefore, she still is a supremacist, and individuals of the other races are pawns in her schemes, mere tools in order to achieve her revenge against the Thalmor.

    This build is so badass that you can play it on Master and still be a killing machine. What's good about the dremora lords is that they can not be rebuked by the dragon priests, and they handle themselves very well against dragons (even revered ones).

    PS: forget about the atronach crown + the atronach perk. Summons fail 80% of the time. Plus, hooded thalmor robes are just too cool to neglect them.

    Hi there!

    I'm having an amazing time playing this build (i've spent some points in one-handed). I wonder if is there any mods that can improve the roleplay experience. Actually, i'm using better vampires and unique vampire dens.

    What about you guys?

    Thanks in advance for any insight!

    I see a tiny flaw in this build (I hate to say it, i really do) but you say this build knows all of the Thalmor's deepest and darkest secrets.

    If you are considering doing the main quest with the character, which i presume you are as you say he reveals himself to be Dragonborn, when you have the quest with Delphine you must try to figure out who has been making the dragons rise out their graves, and you say to her that you have no idea whatsoever and she suspects the Thalmor, and you have about 2-4 quests like the Thalmor Embassy Party trying to figure out if they do have anything to do with it, when if he knows all their secrets He should just tell her they don't

    Other than that, i'd like to *humbly* apologize and say this actually is a badass toon to offset my flaw-noticing. I like you and your builds for that so i'm sorry lol  but +1 from me anyhow.

    Also if you were to reveal yourself as an all powerful dragon-slaying vampiric thalmor badass, stride into the ratway warrens and claim to esbern to be dragonborn he would probably think the world has ended.

    Also being a blade, Delphine would club your face in the monent she saw you, not welcome you into the underchamber of the most secret under-inn room of the Blades Headquarters in the entirety of Skyrim.

    Just sayin'. sorry again.  Good build though.

    Roleplay is, and always will be in the eye of the beholder...

    That was just the backstory that worked for me as I played. How other people mold the character is up to them.
