One of my mates just sent this to me, I thought I'd share it here seeing how we're trying to liven the forums up again. Hopefully this won't be as shockingly criminal as last nights thread...You have…Continue
My take on Skyrims roleplay crushing heavy armor set.
The Kingslayer is a vampiric death-knight that combines conjuration mastery with a splash of stealth for a fast and entertaining playthrough.
"There could be no other end"
The Heretic is a gothic warrior with a disregard for the rules.
Modelled on the classic d&d cleric, this character uses a fusion of divine and profane spell craft to destroy his opponents.
For me The Sorcerer is what Skyrim is all about.
Lightning! Flames! Overpowered weapons! Demonic creatures springing up from nowhere! Epic battles! This build brings everything to the table and leaves nobody disappointed.
This build actually pre-dated the Dawnguard DLC, few characters synergise as well as my version of the famous vampires of Skyrim.
Expect a nice role-play experience and a character that is capable of shining a fresh light on Skyrims gameplay mechanics.
The Obsidian Sentinel
The final edition in my Sentinel range of builds...
The Obsidian Sentinel has maximised every defensive statistic that Skyrim has available. Immunity to magic, disease, poison, maximised block and armor rating! All this combined with a powerful health regeneration set-up make this character unstoppable.
The only build ever created to unleash the true power of the Blizzard master spell.
The Bronze Sentinel
Melee builds are notoriously weak against mages and I decided it was time to create a character that could not only kill enemy sorcerers with ease but would actively hunt them down.
The Bronze Sentinel is a dread-tank, capable of vanquishing dragon priests at low levels and standing solid against the games hardest hitters!
The Arcane Archer
The Arcane Archer embraces my love of sorcery and enchantment to create the ultimate ranged attacker.
Controlling the battlefield with bows of terror, absorbing health from flying dragons, reducing the strongest enemies to a crawl with freezing arrows...
By manipulating leveling through training this build enjoys a very steep experience curve.
A deadly rogue Thalmor.
Evil spellcasting, vampirism, terror powered flame attacks and a near complete conjuration tree make this character unique.
The Nemesis is customised to be my ultimate guilty pleasure, a pure mage that doesn't mind getting his hands dirty in melee.
A build for those who don't mind breaking boundaries.
The Morag Tong
An attempt to re-create my favourite Elder Scrolls faction!
The Morag Tong are the ancient Dunmer assassins of Morrowind, a welcome change from the standard Dark Brotherhood grunt.
Acrobatics, Illusions and even the wonderful Ebony Blade add spice to the original stealth skillset.
Strong role play and unique equipment choices create one of the best looking characters I've ever had the pleasure of playing.
An Assassin of Assassins!
One of my oldest builds; The Alik'r is an unarmored swordsman/thief that uses a collection of deadly steel scimitars to tear through Skyrim.
Although lacking ranged offense the Alik'r has the advantage of speed and paralysis on his side making him a deadly adversary.
A unique caped costume, uncommon weaponry and a diverse skillset make this build one of my personal favourites.
This build simply embraces the dark side. The Revenant is a corpse-eating necromancer that specialises in deadly draugr weaponry.
This character fully utilises the Targe of the Blooded to mutilate his enemies before devouring and raising whatever remains of their bodies into servitude.
A character that looks just as terrifying as his deeds!
I love orcs! No other race quite matches their intimidation and power; unfortunately playing as an orc can often leave you feeling out of place, Skyrim doesn't really cater for the pig people.
This build is heavy role play as we leave the cities and towns of Skyrim to the civilised and get dirty in the wild with nasty axes, quadruple damage and deadly poisons!
The Fallen Hero
I believe everyone has played a character like this at some point.
Characters that shift in their alignment during a story have always attracted me, especially if that shift is towards evil...
A noble knight that decends into a tortured blackguard is juicy role playing at its best.
Perks have been selected carefully with this character to reflect his changing personality.
A very strange creature!
The Salamander pushes the block skill to its absolute limit by using elemental cloaks as his main form of damage.
This character is the ultimate turtle build and is effective at dispatching enemies with minimal effort.
The Hold Guard
I decided that someone had to do a build for these characters.
Guards are just funny as hell and this build lets the player wear all nine hold armors as they dominate Skyrim in style!
