    I haven't used the lunar enchantment in awhile, but now that you said it was broken on ps3, I'm going to see if it still works on xbox360.  Also, I've found that ghost before, so I think I'm okay on that.  Again, good job on the build.

    Mason, have you tried using the daedric smithing perk to improve the armor? Or do you think it is not even worth it for this build? Just curious. I know you put a lot of thought into perk placement. I am having so much fun with this build! Thanks!

    It's not worth the trouble investing the perks mate, the temptation to then equip ebony or daedric would probably spoil the character. The build does use enchanting and i created a 100% smithing set with it to temper the armor.

    I dont think i quite hit the armor cap with this guy but to be honest any build that invests so many points into health will simply start to out-tank enemies by around level 30+, factor in the enormous range of two handed swords and your undead minions and you have a recipe your disaster.

    Without the daedric smithing perk you would need a smithing score of 168 to get the armor set to legendary. If your smithing is at 60 and you create a set of 100% fortified smithing gear you would be at 120, throwing in a smithing elixir would take it to 150 i believe (epic).

    Damn... this creature could be a monster in a horror movie. If something like this walked slowly towards my character in skyrim, in a dark night, my character wouldn't die by the Duskbreaker, I think he would rather die of heartattack.
    btw I like evil characters
    well done

    This is a really cool build and I have to say I am going to have to try it.  Thank you for sharing.

    Although I have to say the music gave me a little PTSD... I ducked.  Yeah, that game.. let me tell you....

    Lol, I know right! When i was picking out some music and re-discovered this i felt my palms begin to sweat again. That damn pure bladestone...

    Thanks for the comment!

    no kidding... I love that game but I had nightmares..... of the game going blacker and blacker.... ugh.

    Are you familiar with the creation kit?  If so, it would be cool to have a mod of the Duskbreaker here.  Simply to have it earlier than however many levels it would require to make it; you could even have a little mini quest to find another Revenant, kill him, steal his soul, maybe a grimoire and a full set of the ancient nord armor... just a thought.  If you are not familiar with the CK, I could try to do it for you, however I am not very good with it either.... heh.
