  • I want to build a character who purely uses archery, but can kill people proficiently without being in serious danger. My preferred races I have consideredd making are nord, bosmer, and Breton. Any thoughts?

    • Go bosmer and take slow time. 

    • Shameless advertizing aside, you can give my Night Usher a read for some tips and tricks for an archery-slow time build

  • Can anyone here help me learn enchanting? I know how to enchant things but I don't know how to get my hands on filled soul gems or how to fill soul gems. I am doing this with a pure archer btw and enchanting so going to be handy. Please help!

    • You will need the Soul trap spell, or A soul trap enchantment. You can obtain the Spell from a Court Wizard or at the College of Winterhold, or as random loot. You can get the enchantment at random from stores or as loot. Soul gems are often easily found on dead mage NPC's or in thier lairs, or can be bought off of a court wizard or the College of Winterhold.

    • You can gain  enchanting experience by disenchanting enchanted armor or weapons  

    • Also if you have the septims there is an enchanting trainer at the COW

  • Out of the three destruction spell types, frost has been my favorite. However, since the majority of enemies in skyrim are immune to frost damage I was wondering if there's any way to use the power of frost but have an easy and fun time doing so. Thoughts?

    • All frost spells have a chance to slow enemies. Combine that effect with fear spells and watch enemies run away at a snail’s pace.

  • I wanna make a nord character, but I have a problem. I can't decide between one handed and shield, dual weilding, and two handed. To me two handed is two slow for my playstyle which leaves one handed and sheild or dual wielding. Any suggestions?
