post #1871 of 12888
hi guys . need some advice regarding my mage , i currently play as pure mage but i start considering changing into a battlemage , is it good to try battlemage using bound sword and mage armor perks or it's not worth it ? should i ditch mage armor perk for some light armor ?!
and what is the perks cap in this game ? some say 70 others 50 .

I read 80 from some "official" source, though I can't remember where exactly. I can say that I'm currently level 42, which means 41 perks, and I only have one skill at 100 and half my skills are <30. 70-80 is probably quite realistic.


Edit - My memory fails me from time to time....

The game will have a level cap of 50 however game director Todd Howard stated that the games "mathematical" level cap is 70.

Not according to what I've read. Your spells are cast at full power no matter what armor you are wearing.

However, the Archmage robes are outstanding. I don't think you could reproduce it with 100 enchanting and full enchanting perks.

My plan is to wear Archmage robes until I get 100 Enchanting and Smithing. At that point I hope to craft some dragon armor and jewelry to get 100% mana reduction for Restoration and Destruction (rendering +mana and +mana regen irrelevant).

Does it make sense to go two handed warrior with a battle axe and shield using heavy armour? I don't plan on using any magic you see smile.gif

Makes perfect sense. Whatsamatterwithyou? 1 hand = axe, 1 hand = shield. Both are warrior weapons

I don't know if it's me being bad and not used to "difficult" games, but I find Destruction incredibly challenging. It makes the game incredibly fun, but at the same time, it's sort of annoying when fighting a really hard boss or objective. For example, when I was fighting Morekai, I literally sat there for an entire hour or so dying in one cast from him. If I didn't die, I'd have to run off and hide and use practically most of my magicka healing myself. I'm going to be honest, after about two hours of trying to kill him, I just used a console kill command and moved on, I just couldn't beat him.

Also, I had to go into a cave to get some books for a guy at the mage college. When I got into the cave, I fought all of the mobs, and there was this guy with a 2 hander. If it hit me, I'd die instantly. I mean, I appreciate difficulty... but that's too difficult.

Am I missing something with being a mage?

I use heavy armor and don't go pure mage; battlemage FTW
pure mage just sucks in Skyrim because you run out of magica way too fast
