My Mage is ALL magic. Nil weapons, NIL armour, in fact he gets around in his loin-cloth and that's it. Use the destruction spells as described above depending on enemies, always fire up your armour spells before battles (undies don't help much), and power
up your resurection spells as the more you kill the bigger your army grows.
Doing it all on Master and yes life is hard. Never have any money, never have any food, never have any love. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
It's pretty easy to level. I am in the high 40's i think without trying. Start by just disenchating a bunch of your more crappy magic stuff. Then get the black star deal and charge up wepaons with it. The trap soul with bound weapon perk helps a ton
it doesnt work like that Resticted. You can disenchant any item with magicka regen to learn the skill. Even one with 1%. Does the same thing. To get 100% magicka regen, once you learn it from a disenchant, you need to have your enchanting perks maxed
and use a grand soul gem.
If I disenchant the archmages robes, and the helm you get on the last quest, can I enchant Elven armor, and other stuff, with 100% magicka regen so I don't loose any, and get better armor? Or do I have to lose the magicka gen to get some armor?
