    Exactly how I was gonna play it. I thought about using it as a base for a new build as this seems to be the true power of alchemy. Unfortunately I've modded my game way too much to get a real feel for how it would work with a vanilla version, and I only change back to vanilla when I need to test some mechanics.

    im building some of my favorite planeswalkers from mtg here is my current.

    name: koth of the hammer

    race: redguard

    concept: koth planeswalked to the world of tamriel and ended up in skyrim. a dragon threatens to drestroy the world so he vows to destroy him first. 

    playstyle: NO shouts period. destruction (fire) onehanded mace light and heavy armor just the bottom of the trees (heavy gauntlet and boots( light fur armor (the lower half to leave his chest exposed just like his pictures) alteration for the added protection and smithing. 

    so far so good i have all of the dlc as well so trying to figure out his next approach once alduin is dead.

    Yeap, and that's also why I probably won't update my build with Dragonborn awesomeness.

    My Current Character: 

    NAME:  Dovahkiin (Yes you read it right)
    RACE:  Breton
    LEVEL:  81 (PC Console Induced)
    PERKS:  All Perks (PC Console Induced)
    WHY?:  Because I got sick of Skill/Stat Juggeling and just wanted to play the game without worrying about what to do next.  Weird thing, i'm really enjoying trying out every single build on this Blog without having to recreate a new Character.  All i have to do is grind for the mats to create the appropriate gear.
    GAME DIF:  Master

    Race: Nord

    Playstyle: As a kind of Vigilant of Stendarr (Alteration, Restoration and Heavy Armor) Heal thyself and others. Destroy the undead but never loot the dead (except for Silver Hand members in Dustman's Cairn though only to get a couple of silver swords but he did penance for that by donating half his gold (over 500!) to the Whiterun temple)

    Weapons: Silver sword with Silent Moon enchantment for undead, Steel mace for the living (why waste charges on wolves and skeevers).

    Armor: Novice Hood (from College of Winterhold) and Novice Robes of Alteration (from Brittleshin Pass), Iron boots and gauntlets 

    This guy is fun to play but hard to pull off sometimes with the constant temptation of looting dead bandits or plundering Nordic ruins unless the quest marker tells me otherwise. This was the first time i went through the Helgen tutorial without looting anything or picking locks. Yes i only used my fists and Battlecry to get out of there.

    Also i did only one Jarl's bounty at Silent Moons Camp just to get the magic weapons there but only killed the leader as killing 6-7 people just to get 100 gold is for serial killers. Plus i walked out on Aela and Skjor as i don't want to be a part of some sick daedric ritual.

    Playstyle: dominate the minds of enemies then slice their throat

    Weapon: steel dagger

    I actually have quite a few characters I'm switching between right now, but I'll go ahead and post the one I most recently played.

    Name: Do'Vash

    Race: Khajiit (Lycanthrope)

    Playstyle: Heavy Armor Sneak Warrior.

    Weapon: Ebony War Axe and Shield

    Armour: Full Ebony set with Orcish Helm.

    Do'Vash is a Khajiit mercenary warrior/bounty hunter who uses steath to stalk his prey and get as close as possible before killing them. Against multiple opponents, kill as many stealthily before engaging the rest in open combat. Dislikes archery, prefering to engage and kill his targets up close. Joined the Companions and became a werewolf to further enhance his abilities.
