    We saw the Pickpocket as not really being needed, but it was quite a useful asset that we decided to keep. It's more for disarming your opponents, which was quite useful given our low AR. 

    That was one of the shortcomings of the build...the inability to cast higher cost spells xD That's where your illusion potions (should you take alchemy) would come in useful. But yeah, it's definitely possible to move those perks over into enchanting, probably up to insightful enchanter. Of course, having +100 carry weight was quite helpful as well...

    Little hint with this one that I didn't read in the build is that the concentration casting glitch only works indoors and at night when you're a Vampire as your stats are changed during the day. I'm playing a combination of this build and The Seraphim right now and it was a little tricky getting it right. Roleplays great as a Vampire power for that reason though. I supplement with two handed during the day (ala Seraphim) and play frost magic only, true Volkihar lore style.

    I haven't noticed that issue Michael.

    Now, stupid me but I couldn't get the casting (grip) glitch to trigger...never could cast bound sword while in the process of transforming.  Luckily there is a mod on Nexus for Vampiric Grip so I grabbed that (and you can swap it out as needed).  Definitely seems to be very OP, I can grip someone and hold them in place while roasting them with Flames.

    Vampiric Grip is extremely fun! It is absolutely my single most favorite spell/power in the game. I try to incorporate it into almost every build I make that uses magic.

    Great build. A definite LIKE from me!

    i was thinking and lately my mind is getting darker and more unstable. but anyway, while she did embrace nord custom she though she could hunt Alduin as a test of her own mettle, not to please a bunch of racist half wit viking want-to-be's. besides he stood in her way of the power she wants
