    I just saw the Ancient Nord Armor for the first time in the game, not just a screen shot and it does look amazing! Now I just have to play this build. I've been wanting to play a necromancer anyway but I didn't know how to role play it. Very creative, Mason.

    Mason, any thoughts on specific shouts this character targets? Marked for Death seems particularly appropriate for a revenant, especially since he'll be picking up one of the words while he destroys the Brotherhood. Any others?

    Become ethereal is a must for low stamina/high health builds, you want at least level 2 so you can get around quickly.Marked for death? I do try to avoid using that one myself, its totally overpowered but it does actually really suit this class, wearing slightly gimped armor and no healing ability outside absorb health weaponry, i think i can roll with it.

    No other shouts really stand out as being essential, elemental fury would possibly be useful in the early days!

    Okay, thanks. Yes Become Ethereal makes sense for taking on a ghost-like form.

    The ghost was a no-show... Well there is a 10 minutes I'll never get back... Time to try Siege to get the armour

    This guy had no trouble, is there some kind of platform problem i'm not aware of with this build?

    I play on ps3 and have done 'the Kjenstag run' several times with absolutely no problems...

    This is an awesome build; I will definitely be using this.  There is one thing I think I might change.  I was looking at the enchantments on your "Duskbreaker".  I was thinking it might be cooler to replace the fire enchantment with the lunar enchantment from one of the Lunar weapons in Silent Moons Camp.  Even though it's not really powerful, I thought it sounded more like "Duskbreaker".  Great build, thanks for posting this!

    Thanks mate!

    Man, i am dying to create a build that utilises the lunar enchantment! The problem is that its completely broken on the new patch, it does no extra damage at all! I tested it extensively on my sorcerer build to see if i could find a work around, its completely knackered (on ps3 anyway).

    Be very careful if you use this build on Kjenstag ruins to get your armor set, ive had several members whining that they can't locate the ghost. Just follow the instructions i put in the build and it should be ok. (my instructions are the same as the wiki)

    Well damn... I had just started a new character with similar characteristics. I might still put it up though if you're fine with it. Please respond if convenient, if not convenient respond anyways.
