Hello and welcome once again to our weekly Character Build Showcase, where we take a look at some of the high quality builds that you can find within the Skyrim Character Build Group.
This weeks showcase we're presenting the Arcane Architect by DocPGB, arguably one of the most unique mage builds you can find on the Forge. As always to get you interested here is an excerpt written by DocPGB from the built itself:
“Hailing from a small nomadic Redguard tribe, the Warrior-Priests of Ish’ahl were once renowned mercenaries employed against arcane outlaws. They could bend sand to form projections during combat and owed this technique to the enemies of their ancestors, known as Left-Handed Elves. However, like their sibling-tribe the Ash’abah, they were ostracized by Redguard society for their use of Magic, and only employed as a last resort.
What makes the Arcane Architect so unique? The answer to that is a special set of items called 'Do Not Delete' boxes. Theyre a special item players aren't inherently meant to find that when dropped float in space. These act as the magical sand constructs the Arcane Architect is able to to create at will and they come with many uses like creating standing platforms in mid air or obstructing your enemy's path.
The anime fans here may have picked up that this build is based off of Scar from the Full Metal Alchemist series. It isnt easy translating special powers from non Elder Scrolls sources into Skyrim given the game's limitations.. Despite the challenge Doc has done an excellent job translating and integrating the abilities and backstory of his chosen source material into the game.
As always check out the build and leave a like and a comment on the build if you enjoyed reading or playing it. Tune in next week for the next character build show case.
