Hello, I’m more than happy to offer my input.

Right away I can tell you put a lot of work into this build, way more so than what is typical on the calculator, which is fantastic. The builds introduction is well written and quite compelling. It really grabs the readers attention.

My suggestion would be to perhaps incorporate a more viable means for your character to defend himself in the early game. It’s a bit of a long road to acquiring 100% shout cool down reduction for vanilla players.

All in all good job.

emoticon My first build on here, so be critical, but not rude please. In this way I can improve on builds later.

Sorry I thought I was typing it in the discussion until I was finished then I realized I will do that right now

Not bad, but I don't think that you really need Restoration if your character is going to mainly focus on dual-wielding swords. Yes it's useful for healing, but you're cutting your attack power in half to heal when you could just drink a health potion or 2.

As for Enchanting, maybe explain what enchantments you would recommend for the equipment.

Now for the equipment itself, if you're going for a knightly aesthetic, ebony isn't the best way to go. Steel Plate is much better appearance-wise for the armor and as for the weapons... Hmm... Maybe glass or dragonbone?

For perks, I would recommend grabbing Well Fitted for Heavy Armor, Savage Strike for One-Handed, and everything up the left-hand side of the tree for Smithing up to Glass Smithing (assuming you decide to switch the armor and weapons).

You know, you could've just put this in the description section. Because that's what it's for. Describing the build.

Too many people put their build descriptions in the discussion section and, really, it's lazy.

You can be any race and gender
You were born to a family that you didn’t really know because 5 years after your birth bandits raided your family farm and killed everyone but you escaped and was took in by a explorer who taught you everything you know when you turned 18 you left and went exploring all of tamriel you first explored Valenwood the the black marsh then you came to Skyrim but got caught crossing the border. After all the main stuff are whenever. You started to explore dwemmer sites and were fascinated by the advanced technology and devoted your life work to learning more about These mysterious race

I might try this one. Sounds like a very fun and interesting way to play
