    I joined the stormcloaks, but not for the purpose you mentioned. You can freely choose which side to join or you can also give it a motivational background e.g religious views, defending homeland, seeing one side as a traitor, revenge for your family. It's your RP :)

    Lol! Totally remember doing that now. My bad! I find going from stealth-shots to open combat with bows makes for a less overpowered transition, personally. Then again it can't hurt to have the best of both worlds in a single build either.

    You know what? I started a completly new build. A Thief/stealth archer with a really cool backstory, motivation,... I'm trying hard to stay bow-only but the character I used as template uses 1 sword every now and then :P

    If you shuffle the paragraphs, and pictures around, you could probably break up the pileup around where you've got two IMGs running into each other, and stranding the words Major Skills away from any other text.  Other than that glaring anomaly, nice first build.

    Playing this build now ^-^ 
    Rather liking how it sounds tbh; always have loved to try out a archer and what better I get to be a vamp to mwahah

    That Nightfall sword looks immensely powerful.  45 points of health on strike, at sword speed+whatever you have in the other hand (I'm assuming that there enchanted Blade of Sacrifice) even without the Frost damage is incredible.  I'd worry about losing focus as an Archer with that kind of firepower, considering none of your bows can match that kind of DPS. 

    I'm not too worried about OP, as long as I'm still having fun, but I hate overshadowing my primary with my secondary, alls I'm saying.

    I maxed out smithing plus some enchanting potions with gear to boost enchanting. I already crafted new weapons with less OP and I understand exactly what you mean. The bows weren't enchanted with the boosts, so they are weaker. In fact it was not clever for me to picture the sword with the boosts. Sorry for the confusion. 

    I think, thats a bit the problem with self-enchanting, you get your gear exactly how you want it, but you risk being overpowered at the same time, especially with two strong enchantments.
