    If you dont mind dabbling into necromancy, if only temporarily, the novice raise zombie spell levels conjuration exceptionally fast. 

    Alternatively casting soul trap on any corpse is also pretty fast.

    Ah - I didn't even know Nettlebane could be enchanted! But it's a dagger, so it doesn't benefit from critical hit perks. :( Otherwise I would have made this a dagger build and less of a fighter build than it is I think.

    I do take your point about too many crafting skills being a turnof. Personally I love smithing and hate grinding spells lol - it wouldn't occur to me that anyone dislikes smithing. But each to their own. I've taken this on board in the next build I'm doing by making the smithing grind an optional path.

    Thanks Curse!

    I know level 60 might put people off, but I kinda got into being completist about the concept and throwing everything in lol. It still works as a concept if it's played till 30.

    Ah, crap. You´re right, I forgot that Critical Strikes were playing huge role here. Scratch my comment about Nettlebane then. 

    Actually, it´s not I dislike crafting skills or something like that, I love Alchemy and don´t mind the other two. It´s just as I said, Smithing, Enchanting, Daedric Sword, Chaos Enchant combined is just overkill. For me at least.

    All images have been restored for this build. While I try my best to keep the formatting as close to the original as possible, there are some unavoidable differences as a result of differing platforms... for this I apologize.

    Also, please feel free to remove the 'Restored' banner at the end of the build--I put it there as a courtesy to let the reader know that the build has been worked on by somebody other than its original creator without his or her knowlege.

    Many people don't add Black Book powers to their builds, but I think this one would benefit from Dragonborn Force, as it gives you a chance to disintegrate enemies. On that note, you could change it to a spellsword, as Destruction spells do have percent chances to do things like paralyze, disintegrate or fear enemies. Great build all around otherwise.

    Thanks Tirrene! I am working on an Ordinator reboot of this which might turn out to be a spellsword if I can make up my mind. This is a favourite character of mine, but there are definately things I would do differently now I've been building longer.
