    Good find DB. This is pretty sweet, and I reckon a lot of fun to be had and probably the kick I need to try Vancian. RP wise, I wonder if shifting it away from the arcan and into a divine sphere for a Vancian Cleric would make it feel like divine protecti...

    You know, I have avoided taking the Vancian Magic branch of Alteration... dunno why... maybe because it feels so different and strange to me. But I really do need to give this branch a whirl at some point in time. It sounds like a game changer :D

    I'v...

    Hmmmm, now what build were you playing when you learned that useful trick? ;D

    Hey readers, it's been awhile but I'm back with another Ordinator Tip, and this time I have a fully tested tip for you based on one of my recent characters. It's a relatively simple trick, but when using it without even getting into Apocolypse, Imperious,...

    Man, that's an interesting question

    I'll have to test it to be sure but at the moment I don't see why Aspect of Terror/ Deep Freeze shouldn't work because the perk (at least in UESP) says Fire/Frost damage rather than spell or effect, meani...

    Do the Disintegrate, Intense Flames, and Deep Freeze perks function with with corresponding staves? There has been a lot of documentation on the Staff of Magnus and Miraak’s Staff, and I know the Augmented Flames/Frost/Shock perks work on staves, but I’m ...

    Hmm, let me do a bit of math here, but I think you'd be a tad off because you're not calculating both weapons early on but using a Dual Power Attack, which also would require an additional set of calculations because you're going to be hitting more than o...

    I am considering a new build: an Argonian stealth dagger / Illusion build.
    I would like to know if the Armsman perks (gives bonuses when fighting with one-handed weapons) stack with the Backstab and Assassin's Blade bonuses in Stealth.
    If so...

    I’ve also found it fairly easy to use Shadow Warrior to stealth and stab a dragon. Just sayin’.

    Jojobobo replied to Jojobobo's discussion Visage of Mzund, Necromage Vampire and Fortify Destruction in the group Skyrim Tips and Tricks:
    Do it! I think the Necromage vampire combo certainly makes the damage significantly more legit, and of course you need to be comfortable with a crafting build (Smithing, Alchemy and Enchanting), but I think there's loads of builds that can spiral off this...

    Now I want to see a build incorporate the Visage and Whirlwind Cloak for a centurion that can use steam prsssure for crowd control.

    Thanks, and yeah I guess there's always something rewarding about discovering something new about a 5+ year old game - with the amount of people who have played Skyrim you wouldn't think there would be anything left!I guess my mind wasn't that inquiring -...

    Amazing how Skyrim yet has secrets for the inquiring mind, even from a gameplay standpoint. Excellent find!

    Nice! Glad to see it was appreciated! I updated the wikis with the info, but shared it on here first - so this site can have the original claim to the find ;-D

    I'm still fairly new to the DLC, but this looks really cool and the RP possibilities from making this helmet actually viable are pretty cool. I'll bet there are a lot of Dwemer inspired builds that could benefit from giving this a read :D
    BTW, this has b...

    Big UPDATE: It's also affected by Necromage vampire. I'll edit my findings into the OP.
     
    Yeah it seemed pretty conclusive to me too, though naturally it would be good if someone could verify it independently. The bear was the same in both instance...

    Hmm, I can't see the pictures (or videos...) at the moment but I am definitely 100% down if Breath of Nchuak is indeed boosted by Fortify Destruction Potions (would also have to test a few other things like Shalidor's Insights: Destruction to see if that ...
