Default Skyrim mage class

So Heretics,

I was hoping you could help me out here i've been wanting to make a mage class and I really cannot stand doing the same quest twice so making a new character is out of the question. I currently have this:

Magicka - 140
health - 175
stamina - 100

destruction - 31
restoration - 25
alteration - 15
enchanting - 20
conjuration - 15
illusion - 15
alchemy - 15
speech - 34
pickpocket - 16
lockpicking - 18
sneak - 16
light armour - 17
archery - 26
one handed - 32
two handed - 32
block - 23
heavy armour - 35
smithing - 16
enchanting - 20

I'm level 10, and an imperial, I have spark and flames although I normally use flames with the orchish sword of flames. What would you suggest I do? where can i go to become an even better mage or should i just drop it? Are there any caves I should explore for good mage stuff?

Well thanks for your advice in advance, and for putting up with my long list

Oh p.s I also wear black mage robes for 50% fast magika regen and steel helmet of destruction for 15% less cost for destruction spells

You sir, need to visit The College of Winterhold (i.e The Mages Guild) located just past Winterhold. Dump your skill points you get from leveling up into Destruction/Resteration mainly, specifically down the fire path of the tree and anything that provides benefit's for dual-casting, and enchant/find items that lower the cost of casting spells/increase magicka regen/do fire-frost-shock damage.

Typically caves that have Necromancer's should have some better Mage-ish type equipment, and by shopping around you can find some wicked enchanted weapons and armour as well

I have a lvl 20 Mage now and once I went to the College my character skyrocketed in hitting power. Definitely a must if you are wanting to go down the mage road. Getting the Archmage Armour is so sweet.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

There is actually a way to reset you charachters stats in the pc version (dont know about other platforms) while keeping the same level with the commands in the game that you bring up with the "`". Its a bit glitchy though so id be very certain you know what your doing/dont mind leveling back up.

google "skyrim commands"



current win rates;
csm 3/1/1
daemons 1/0/0

My mage is a conjurer, I would reccomend you go that path. I tried doing a pure mage, but suffice to say I can't do it out of perferred warrior mixed with something else play style.

Gauldur's Amulet will help immensely too. Do the Forbidden Legend quest; a book called Lost Legends will start it.
There are several high level magical items and the usual random loot, weighed in favour of magical items also.
The Amulet itself increases all the base stats (HP/MP/ST) by thirty points.

What is playing the Conjurer class like? I have always gone for Destruction and can't see how summoning things is better. Could be wrong though and I would be glad to know how if so.

My main character is currently a Lvl 35 and a Conjurer and it's pretty good. I currently have 75 Conjuration and Bound Bow, Summon Daedric Lord, Revenant and Summon Storm Atronach are my big spells just now. My Archery is also in the 70's which helps as well. Basically I sneak in somewhere, surprise people with a Daedric Lord and use my Bound Bow to pick people off, making sure I have plenty of full Soul Gems. This suits me fine as I like Enchanting things as well. I prefer it to Destruction as I'm rarely in harms way, I won't run out of a magika at a critical point or anything like that.
