    Yes, yes, yes! It is a challenging build but put the right pieces together and it's one of the most rewarding pure mages you'll ever play. You literally have to outsmart and outplay your opponent with just a few tricks up your sleeve. And that familiar becomes such a crucial ally, a true animal familiar as recognized by the fantasy genre. Thank you for giving it a second shot :)

    Not going to lie man I was not expecting a response I didn't know if you were still lurking around here or not lol. Yeah I've been using the first word of slow time as like a teleport anyways for some reason I seem to be doing more damage casting flames in each hand then dual casting it does casting in each an actually do more damage or am I just seeing things? And does aspect of terror still increase the flame damage cuz I'm only doing like 22 damage I play on console did they patch that out? Yeah I'm loving this playthrough I'm also doing Ponty's Nightgaurd. Any ways loving get the character haven't touched any of the main questlines and now a lvl 41!!!!!!

    Hey no problem! I stop in every once in awhile but I also get emails when someone comments on a build of mine so I can respond in a decent amount of time. Aspect of Terror and Augmented Flames will boost it and it may be too late but taking Augmented Flames boosts Aspect of Terror's magnitude.

    Also, casting Flames in spurts early on is great cuz you can stack that taper damage up. But once you get all the perks and have a larger pool of Magicka Dual Casting will deal more damage per second but will cost more Magicka obviously but it's not a big deal cuz Flames is so cheap.

    Level 41 and no main quest, you have to appreciate that! Seriously, I'm trying to get back into Skyrim but I've played these questlines to death and beyond. There's something so rewarding about having no agenda, exploring caves and tombs, besting baddies through sleight of hand and quick wit. I may have to give this another go lol. Well I'm glad to hear you're still enjoying the build brother. I've got a few more interesting ones on my page if you ever get bored lol. Cheers!

    Does destruction potions increase destruction damage?

    Yes they do, along with Shalidor's insights in destruction (only two items I know of that actually fortifies destruction instead of reducing the costs).

    Lol what did you not like? I've actually heard that from several people. Even a few who have played the build Edit: By "like" you must have meant that you didn't leave your +1...gotcha. Well thanks for visiting after all this time and I'm glad you did and do "like" it :)
