    Since I made a Midna build on this site, I wouldn't feel right not to put a build of her loyal steed and close friend (lover?) on this site as well. That's right, I am of course talking about the lupine form of the adventurer elf as seen in the Legend of Zelda game Twilight Princess. His backstory and the triforce lends itself really well to both character building and Skyrim gameplay.

    After defeating Ganondorf in the realm of twilight, midna summoned a portal that was supposed to send Link home, However, just as midna cast her spell to open a portal, It turned red and emitted a blast of light which knocked midna to the ground, she get up and found that link disappeared along with the portal. “Link!” she screamed, tears streaking down her cheeks. Midna began sobbing loudly. Midna’s proud, happy demeanor dimished and was replaced by a worried look. She dared not think the worst.

    Lnik hurtled through time and space towards an unknown destination. He could not see anything because the portal was filled with red glitch particles. Squinting, he could see a bend in the portal up ahead. He shot on for what seemed, to him, like an eternity because the red and black swirls inside the portal kept on going on and the swirls seemed endless.

    The portal however did end. and the wood elf found himself on top of a snowy mountain, in a place called The Last Vigil. The elf, still disoriented from the portal, got up a little unsteadily. Just when he was about to leave he heard a voice, "If you ever want to go hme again you must defeat me in combat, I have sealed away the golden triangle you so covet. The peices are being gaurded by the most powerful creatures in the land which are located in the realms of the dead, the fires of the forge, the land of ice and the last piece is guarded by the most powerful dragon priest buried in earth."

    As an afterthought, he cast a spell, bloting out the sun, turning the people of skyrim into murderous criminals and equally murderous dragons. Then he turned the elf into a horrible, werewolf-like creature. The voice told the elf of Valenwood he must defeat the dragons to obtain relics of great power and that he must defeat the ‘minibosses’’ of Skyrim, the keepers and the reaper in the realm of the dead, the dragon in the dwemer underworld, the tree creatures in Solstheim and the frost giant in the ice castle in order to obtain a very special gem that can restore his human form so he can start the second part of his quest.

    The voice also said that the world is full of many dangerous dungeons that the elf must traverse to obtain 'boss keys' to enter the four boss lairs that he has spread throughout the land. The disembodied voice also stated that if he can do this, find the keys, save Skyrim and defeat both the 'minibosses' and the 'bosses', he will have the opportunity to defeat the toughest 'boss' in Skyrim. Link was about to ask who it was when the voice fashioned itself a body.

    The Ebony Warrior materialized out of the mist. "I will be your final challenge, hero. Now go, fulfill your destiny. I shall be waiting for you here, all the while monitoring your progress and giving you hints should you need them.

    Link first opens the battle by hitting the enemy with a weakness to fire potion and then he lets loose with his dawnbreaker weapon. He uses this tactic against weaker enemies like forsworn, bandits, pesky lizards, cats and the always annoying Thalmor. For giants and huge enemies, he usleashed his ''blue-eyed beast' form to cut the huge enemies down to size. For magic wielding enemies,, he wields his hylian shield as it deflect a certain percentage of magic and then he hits them with his master sword and Din's breath all while utilizing Nayru's healing spells.

    Link starts out his adventure in the city of Helgen. He then goes to whiterun on the first step of removing his curse which is admitting he has a problem and getting it under control with the companions questline. He then undertakes the College Of Winterhold questline in order to learn spells from the seven sages. He then joins The Imperial Legion because a sword wields no power unless the wielder has courage. Link then starts his journey to reform the triforce through the Dragonborn, The Main Quest and dragonpriest quests. Link must gain the light spirts’ favor through destroying the undead scourge with their light bow and spells when he undertakes the Dawnguard quest. When all of the triforce pieces are found, Link brings them to Brunjaard Sanctuary in order to reform the triforce and obtain the Mask of the Golden Goddesses.

    Sounds fun. I hope the elf finds his way home again. :D

    thanks Mook. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is my favorite game out of the LOZ series. have you played this or any Legend of Zelda games?

  • December 3, 2018

    No, I've only got PC though watched my family play the early ones.  They do seem like great games.

    I like builds that have defined quest stages that build into a real story.
