    Two-handed + Destruction + Shouts

    So, a battlemage of some sort? I guess it could be called that. Also I use the block skill a lot.

    It would fall under that category. Good play style though.

    Spellsword or some kind of stealth mage ... Or a mix of both.

    @Gabe that's why I play Bow/Mage mixes. I'm a big ole Bosmer marksman at heart.

    Been running a bound bow-wielding Argonian Mage recently, quite a bit of fun.

    True warrior - light armour + sword and board.

    I find myself most at home when sword and boarding. I don't really know why, I just enjoy bashing people's heads in. Other than that, probably Sneak Archery + Conjuration.

    Too many to say. But I would go for awesome pure mage or necromancer. "Your mind is your most powerful weapon"

    I always go with the Hunter type or pet class. Pets make me feel like I'm fighting alongside Pokemon. Then, only if the game is a MMO, I switch to a tank class and make it my main.

    Pure blacksmith warrior with a touch of restoration thrown in for that paladin twist

    I've always played a tank in fantasy games. In WoW I played a protection warrior/raid tank (Orc warrior forever! ) for years and had a protection paladin tank as an alt character once Lich King came out and made pallys good tanks finally. I briefly went back to WoW for a bit during Cataclysm and made a bear druid...

    So, I seem to keep to that theme in Skyrim as I feel most at home as an Orc in heavy armor with a shield and 1-hander. I recently did discover the joys of smashing things with 2-handers though, so I've been toying around with that, but my heart will always be with shield bash.

    I feel you Lozhar I just wished they had a better dodging system in the game and a better sneaking one too.

    I am torn between mages and assassin types. As far as assassins go in skyrim I heavily favor dual wielding types.
