    Builders Discuss Topic 10: Standing Stones

    Those mysterious obelisks that dot the landscape of Skyrim, no build is complete without one, but which should you choose?  Standing stones are unique in that most of them have a negligible impact on the character build while a select few w...

    Character Build: The Silencer

    The inspiration for this build came directly from this section of Cicero's journal:

    21st of Sun's Dusk, 4E 188. So much has happened since my last entry. After Garnag and Andronica left for Bravil, we stopped receiving communications from the city. We ...

    Character Build: The Pridestalker

    Note: This is my first build. Constructive criticism is appreciated. 
     After playing multiple builds during my time on Skyrim, I've gotten bored of the typical throat-slitting and skull-bashing. Khajiit still being my reigning favouri...

    Hello and welcome to my first build. I was inspired after watching Doctor Strange and thinking how awesome would it be to have that kind of character in Skyrim. Criticism is welcomed and encouraged.

    Character Build: The Fist of Thalmor

    UPDATE October 2016 - When this build hit Mythic I thought I could revisit it, polish some things and give it a nicer look. And I did, I changed ugly Altmer guy into hot elf chick! Beside the presentation there are few minor changes, but nothing drastic.

    Character Build: The Devotee of the Ghost Snake

    The fall of High Velothi Culture heralded a new age for the Dunmer people. It was a time of change, of reckoning- a time when we, the Ashlanders, first became. Those of the newly birthed - and deeply misguided - Great Houses, left Saint Veloth&rsqu...

    Character Build: Rise of the Fallen

    Aesthetically, Blades gear is amazing but its rarity and lack of synergy with crafting perks often makes it an underused set.  Although the Blades themselves are key players in the Skyrim main quest they have a fairly poor shelf life for role-play an...

    Character Build: The Fearmonger

    Having never really delved into a truly evil build (Mythic Dawn is pretty evil though) that incorporates raising the dead, I wanted to give it a go. I also wanted to give it a go at a "pure" mage build that only wielded distance spells and did 100% no mel...
