Character Build: The Knight

    wouldnt ebony work better for a fallen knight? it is (slightly) easier to get, has a sort of regal look to it, while still looking evil

    Guess that's up to personal preference, ebony would work great for that. A lot of people seem to have a problem with daedric armor, and while I admit it can look a bit silly I think it's great for an evil character. Also the ebony helmet looks weird in my opinion and I like getting the benefit of matching set. That said I may edit and say ebony is a good look for fallen knights, thanks for the input!

    Daedra Lords are all corrupting by nature, by wielding an artifact from any of them including Meridia is allowing their influence to creep into your soul. Meridia seems great but she's still selfish and only seems good because her desire to eradicate the undead lines up with that of the Divines but in the big scheme of things does not have the best interests of the mortal plane at heart.

    Think of it like the One Ring from Lord of the Rings, just being in the presence of a daedric artifact will corrupt you and if you use it, even once, it takes hold of your life. That's my take on these artifacts based on my knowledge of lore

    Sweet dude, there's definitely plenty of room in the build to swap in dual wielding since you can drop blocking. That sounds quite fun, I'm imagining dual wielding an axe and mace fully perked, that's a terrifying thought with the bleed damage and the ignoring armor!

    lol, just get a lint brush for your armor xD

    You make it sound like heavy armor is hard to wield dude. Knights don't need to sneak, and should not be tranforming into werewolves other than the first time when it's forced. I only included the Companions for the redemption at the end. The Steed Stone helps you move better and later you get Conditioning on the left arm of the Heavy Armor tree.

    All that said, feel free to us light armor, that can reach the armor cap pretty easily when you're training both Light Armor and Smithing. That's the beauty of this build it's actually quite flexible to people's personal preference as a warrior.

    Wow, this is a very cool idea! You should post this in the roleplaying section, I think people could really get some good use out of this concept

    If only I was capable (I know how to, just don't have the tools) to modify my 360, that mod would b perfect for a couple of my builds.

    Well, aesthetics are subjective, I suppose it doesn't look too bad, but my other concern is that it leaves the neck completely exposed which is weird to me. I guess that's supposed to be the pauldrons' job or something. Regardless, I like how the rest of ebony looks to overlook the odd helmet design
