    Twisted, did you happen to test a Necromage Vamp using a Blood of the Ancients enhanced Drain Vitality to further absorb magic? Would the incoming absorbed magicka plus high regen speed equal free casting of that spell?

    Cool build ^^ and for rings another option is Ahzidal's Ring of Arcana, boost up enchanting, get Aspect of Terror then the fire perks, and poof, super cheap burning apocalypse.

    If people side with the Vampires they can get the ring of Erudite, it boosts regen by 100% and increases your Magicka by 100 might be helpful

    I love no crafting builds, especially viable ones!  This one fits the bill, love the high magicka regen rate.  I also agree with others than this build benefits greatly from siding with the vampires in Dawnguard.

    Nice build; an advice (it seems strange that i'm the first suggesting this) :

    Apprentice Stone + Stability + Fortify Alteration Potion + Potion of Weakness to Frost + Slow Time + Blizzard = New Ice Age

    This is PC only since it's a bug of Blizzard, the more you are weak to Frost/Magic the more DPS Blizzard does.

    The base DPS for Blizzard is 20, 30 with 2/2 Augmented Frost, with the Apprentice Stone and a potion of 100% weakness to frost you should obtain a 90 DPS spell. 900 damage in just 10 seconds...

    Just don't get killed by your own spell... xD

    What's the strategy for fighting dragons?  Spawn minions, turn invisible, and pray?

    use wards or shock/lighting(frost or fire is good too because of the elemental weakness) spells with impact perk, let your magicka refill a little during the stagger and shoot again, but your method also work use your arsenal of spells and shouts, be a mage jajaja
