    Great build, I enjoy plying High Summoner greatly. In my experience a real asset for this character is / might be the Necromancer Amulet!?  I’ve got it quite early in my playthrough because it takes time to fill up Enchanting tree and get own made decent amulet. With only perked Adept in Conjuration tree at lvl88 with Expert robes of Conjuration and Necromancer Amulet: expert level spells ie. Dremora Lord cost merely 11 magica.  The rest of Conjuration spells are in the range 2 – 4 mana, living room for flesh spells / healing casts.  

    Alister builds are interesting to play, but require understanding of mechanic and setting up my own approach. I play Summoner build on Legendary and in challenging or dangerous areas like Soul Carin, I constantly cast Ebony flesh. My Magical Armor is 3 and have Dremora Lord ready to cast after flesh spell. When enemy appears Dremora goes off and I load Bound Bow to shot. One shot from Bonemen takes half on my limited , by Serana’s soul trap, 205 Health here. I have to watch out Health closely now, because Health regeneration is reduced with Necromancer Amulet.  I am waiting for Twin Souls perk.

    The Necromancer's Amulet would really help with Conjuration costs but at the loss of some viability in close combat with the Bound Sword. Ultimately it's up to you but it's a fun quest and I definitely see the benefits. It does lighten the perks you have to throw into Conjuration in the middle of the playthrough which helps develop other skills evenly. Good idea!

    I'm glad you're enjoying the build though! And on Legendary too! The High Summoner should be able to hold it's own with so many conjurations at hand but Legendary is always a challenge. If you have to, cast Soul Trap on a dead body in order to boost Conjuration up to get Twin Souls. It really opens this build up in terms of strategy. Thanks for the comment and good luck PhotoV!

    Hmm, neat!  I never knew that about the spectral drum, now I really wanna get it on my current playthrough of my WIP build just to see it pin those nasty dwarven sphere guardians.

    This build is really a lot like my WIP Archmage Gauldur, isn't it?  But Gauldur isn't nearly this focused on Conjuration.
