What about armor?
You want to be a stright mage or a battlemage? Stright mages wouldnt use armor. just robes and such, personally heres my favortie mage build; Race: Breton Birth Sign:The Mage, The Apprentice, or The Lady(for the willpower bonus) Specialization: Magic, duh Major Skills: Destruction, Conjuration, Mysticism, Restoration, Illusion, Alteration, and Sneak. Thats my persoanl Preference
Do you run significantly faster in robes?
I would think so, since your not encumberd by any armor... yeah, its probally a sure bet you can move faster
I don't wanna waste a skill slot on alchemy, what should I pick for my last skill? Block or light armor?
wait!! I will quote some builds from the guide for mage builds, PURE MAGE: Race: male breton Custom Class Specalization:Mage Class Atrributes: Inteligence, Willpower Birthsign: Apprentice Major Skills: Alchemy Alteration Conjuration Destruction Illusion Mysticism Restoration the bretons resictence makes up for the birthsigns weakness PURE WAR MAGE: Race: Male High Elf Custom Class Specialization: Mage Attributes: Inteligence, Will Power Birthsign:Lady Major Skills: Alteration Conjuration Destruction Illusion Mysticism Blade Block MAGE-COMBAT-STEALTH Race Male Dark Elf Custom Class Specialization:Mage Attributes: Agility, Inteligence Birthsign: Aprentice Major Skills: Destruction Conjuration Illusion Marksman Sneak Blade Light Armour Hope that helps!
ohhh, I like that last build, Think Ill try it out, Got a name for it?
they called it sommat wierd the spellslinger or something like that I will check though if you want...
Nah, lol, I just Decided to name it as Spellsword, even though thats already in the game. That build seems more appropriate to the name. But thanks anyways.
I didn't make it!
ok if you wana be a battle mage Class Breton sign aprentace (even tho it has 100% weakness to magic breton makes it so it only has 50% and also you get better mana) Specialization "you can chose if you want willpower or intelect" Willpower(regain mana faster)/Intelect(More mana as you progress) and strenglith(as second) then destruction conjeration illusion Mysticism Restoration armor blade(or blunt your choice) the if you want pure mage just pretty much use the same build (as shown above) but for specialization make it intel and will.... if u wana keep the armor and blade(or blunt) thats fine Hope this helps Ajm out
