DARK CLERIC/ CRUSADER / M 79 #488982




SORRY FOR CAPS-LOCK. I HAVE BAD VISION D:

BACKSTORY:
USE YOUR IMAGINATION. IT'S YOUR CHARACTER.
I.E. PARENTS AND DOG WERE BRUTALLY MURDERED BY VAMPIRES. NOW THIS JOHN WICK WEREWOLF MACE WIELDER WRECKS AND WREAKS HAVOC OF TURMOIL. ENDLESS HOURS OF DESTRUCTION AND DAMAGE REDUCTION IN THE MOST BADASS METHOD POSSIBLE. THE KEY IS TO HAVE FUN AND NOT GET TOO HELD UP ON THE BACKGROUND. MAYBE YOU WANT TO BE A HOLY CANNIBAL. MAYBE YOU WANT TO BE A DARK CLERIC OF HOLY-HELLFIRE. YOU GET TO DECIDE! ^_^
***THIS IS AS MUCH OF A LEVELER'S GUIDE AS IT IS A CHARACTER BUILD**

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND MINDSET:
THE CHARACTER IS DESIGNED TO BE CHAOTIC NEUTRAL. BE AGAINST WHAT SOCIETY WANTS YOU TO BE, YET DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO DESTROY THE ULTIMATE COMPETITION. THIS MEANS SELLING YOUR SOUL TO SAVE EVERYONE ELSE.
THIS PROTAGONIST WILL MAKE DEALS WITH DAEDRA AND KILL MORALLY QUESTIONABLE PEOPLE IF IT MEANS CERTAIN DESTRUCTION OF ALDUIN, MIRAAK, AND LORD HARKON. THIS ALSO MEANS THAT IF YOU BECOME A VAMPIRE/WEREWOLF...YA YOU KILL PEOPLE..BUT FOR THE GREATER GOOD, MORE IMPORTANTLY GREATER POWER. MAYBE YOU CHOOSE DAWNGUARD AND CHOOSE TO BE MORE LIGHT GRAY THAN DARK. ITS UP TO YOU. THIS BUILD IS DESIGNED TO BE VERSATILE, NOT SPECIFIC
***USE THE LIGHT/DARK ARTS TO EVENTUALLY OVERTHROW ALL COMPETITION.***

PLAYSTYLE: I LIKE TO CHECK THE ROOM BEFORE I RUSH IN. SOMETIMES I WILL START OUT WITH PARALYZE. SOMETIMES I WILL JUST POP FLAME CLOAK IF ITS A BUNCH OF SMALL ENEMIES. I LIKE TO USE MACE OF MOLAG BAL AND CLOSE WOUNDS TO QUICKLY REGENERATE STAMINA. IF YOU PLAY LONG ENOUGH, YOU LEARN TO JUMP OUT OF THE WAY MORE THAN JUST BLOCK. WHEN I HAVE MANY OPPONENTS, I WILL USE THE SHIELD TO MINIMIZE INCOMING HITS I CAN'T DODGE, AND USE THE MACE TO STUN/STAGGER. POWER BASH BECOMES A WASTE OF TIME WHEN YOU PLAY ON HIGHER DIFFICULTIES COMPARED TO USING THAT STAMINA TOWARDS A MACE THAT IGNORES 75% OF ENEMY ARMOR RATING.

EXAMPLE OF PLAYSTYLE: USED CONJURED FOLLOWER(S), PREFERABLY DAEDRA LORD(EXPERT),
ILLUSION(RALLY) TO BUFF FOLLOWER(S) / FEAR ENEMIES,
ALTERATION TO PARALYZE(EXPERT) AND INCREASE ARMOR,
AND ONE HANDED MACE ATTACKS TO DOMINATE THE BATTLEGROUND.
USE SPELLBREAKER(SHIELD)TO MINIMIZE DAMAGE AND REGENERATE MAGICKA WITH WARD ABSORB
USE HEAVY ARMOR. PREFERABLY DAEDRIC ARMOR FROM THE ATRONACH FORGE/SIGIL STONE.
~~DAEDRIC ARMOR WITHOUT SMITHING: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFBf49XJCPs

THIS BUILD FOCUSES ON MACE AND PRIMARILY MACE OF MOLAG BAL. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE ENCHANTMENT IS CLASSIFIED AS A FIRE/DESTRUCTION, HENCE THE TALENTS INVESTED INTO DESTRUCTION AND ILLUSION(FEAR) ARE TO INCREASE THE WEAPON ENCHANTMENT.

PRIMARY SKILLS: ONE HANDED / RESTORATION(MAGICKA/STAM REGEN) /
ALCHEMY (BUFFS/POISON) / BLOCK (SPELLBREAKER WITH WARD ABSORB(RESTO) FOR MAGICKA REGEN) / HEAVY ARMOR
SUPPORT SKILLS: CONJURATION(FOLLOWER(S)) / ALTERATION(CROWD CONTROL) / ILLUSION(CROWD CONTROL)


NON-COMBAT: PICKPOCKET FOR CARRY AND MONEYMAKING.
***YOU CAN PICKPOCKET THE STRANGE AMULET FOR 500 GOLD EACH TIME IN WINDHELM***
GET 20K GOLD TO BUY DAEDRA HEARTS, VOID SALTS, AND EBONY INGOTS FOR THE ATRONACH FORGE.

PARALYZE POISON:
Briar Heart
Canis Root
Gleamblossom DG
Human Flesh
Imp Stool

RACE: BRETON(CLERIC)
VARIANTS:

DARK ELF(FIRELORD) FIRE / STEALTH
HIGH ELF(BATTLEMAGE) SHOCK / ONE-HANDED

PUT ALL TALENTS INTO 50/50 MAGICKA AND HEALTH YOU GET TO 350(ISH),
THEN STACK STAMINA. RESTORATION WILL RESTORE STAMINA MOSTLY. IF YOU WANT TO FOCUS MORE ON CROWD CONTROL THAN BLOCKING, GO ALL OUT INTO MAGICKA.
BLOCKING:
***I REALLY ONLY USED SHIELD WHEN FIGHTING DRAGONS AND DRAGON PRIESTS.
YOU CAN EASILY BOB&WEAVE, SWOOP&SCOOT, AND JUMP TO AVOID MOST MELEE ATTACKS*** ONCE YOU HAVE PARALYZE OR FEAR, YOU DONT GET HIT MUCH ^_^ LOLZ
ANOTHER GREAT TOOL IS THE AETHERIAL SHIELD; IF YOU DONT WANT TO INVEST IN MAGIC TOO MUCH FOR CROWD CONTROL. PLUS ITS A FEAR SO IT PLAYS WELL WITH THE LORE.***

VANILLA ARMOR(IF NO ENCHANTING): EARLY / MID / ENDGAME

ANCIENT SHROUDED ARMOR AT LEVEL 1:

WITH PLAYING THROUGH THE GAME, THERE ARE OTHER ITEMS AND WAYS YOU CAN LEVEL BESIDES USING OAKFLESH AND BLOCKING WITH A SHIELD. IT DOES GET OLD AT LOW LEVELS. THIS WILL BE MY MILLIONTH PLAY-THROUGH, SO I HAVE TIPS AND TRICKS TO SPEED YOU UP TO THE FUN PARTS.

FAST TRACK:
GET THIEF STONE AND DO MISSION TO GET FAENDAL IN RIVERWOOD AS A FOLLOWER.
GET ARCHERY TO LEVEL 50(NO USE IN BUILD OTHER THAN TALENT POINTS INTO OTHER TREES AND GET TO LEVEL 8 QUICKLY). PICKPOCKET POWER LEVEL ALCHEMY WITH ARCADIA IN WHITERUN TO AT LEAST 50. POTIONS WILL KEEP YOUR BARS FULL AT LOW LEVELS.

GET THE LOVER'S STONE
1) PICKPOCKET POWER LEVEL RESTORATION AT COLLEGE OF WINTERHOLD IF YOU WANT.
USE MUFFLE TO PUT YOURSELF OVER THE CAP ON HIGHER LEVELS..

****YOU CAN ALSO PICKPOCKET ITEMS WALKING THROUGH CITIES TO DISENCHANT ONCE YOU ARE CAPPED BY PICKPOCKET POWER LEVEL.****

2) GET SPELLS BOUND SWORD, OAKFLESH, AND MUFFLE.
3) ****GET THE MAGE STANDING STONE****

3A) TALK TO THE ILLUSION TRAINER IN COLLEGE OF WINTERHOLD.
USE THE MISSION TO CHANNEL THE THREE WELLS. THIS WILL GIVE YOU 2 HOURS OF UNLIMITED MAGICKA.

3B) FIND SOME HORKERS AND A ROCK WEST OF THE COLLEGE. STAND ON THE ROCK AND SPAM THE SPELLS UNTIL AT LEAST LEVEL 90 SKILL LEVEL FOR ALL THREE(CONJURATION/ALTERATION/ILLUSION)

4) TALK TO CONJURATION TRAINER IN COLLEGE OF WINTERHOLD FOR SIGIL STONE. ONCE YOU HAVE THE STONE, YOU CAN CONJURE DAEDRIC ARMOR AND WEAPONS. DO FOR ALL ITEM EXCEPT FOR HELMET IF YOU HAVE A DRAGON PRIEST HELM ALREADY.

QUICKSAVE BEFORE YOU PULL THE LEVER JUST INCASE YOU DONT LIKE ITEMS.
(YOU GET GREAT GEAR WITH NO SMITHING OR ENCHANTING)
THERE IS NO SPECIFIC ENCHANTMENT TO GET ON ANY ITEM. JUST WHATEVER HELPS YOU.
DON'T DWELL ON THE PERCENTAGE TOO MUCH. HIGHEST I'VE SEEN IS 40% FOR INCREASED ONE HANDED ETC AND 70% REDUCTION ON FIRE/FROST RESISTANCE.
https://elderscrolls.fandom.com/wiki/Atronach_Forge

OPTIONS THAT MAKE YOU OVERPOWERED:
5) YOU CAN POWER LEVEL RESTORATION AND ARMOR USING GIANTS.

6) YOU CAN BECOME VAMPIRE AND GET NECROMAGE PERK(70 RESTORATION) AND BOOST MORE SKILLS AND ALL ENCHANTMENTS.

7) YOU CAN POWER LEVEL SMITHING WITH RESTO/ALCHEMY LOOP AND IMPROVE ITEMS. BUT IF YOU DO YOU MIGHT AS WELL MAKE YOUR OWN ARMOR AND DUAL ENCHANT.

emoticon MAGICKA IMMUNITY: BECOME VAMPIRE / MAKE RESTO POTION THATS 100% OR HIGHER. WHILE NEXT TO THE ATRONACH STONE, POP POTION AND ACTIVATE THE STONE. IT WILL ABSORB 100% MAGICKA FROM SPELLS.

***CAREFUL, AS MAGICKA ABSORPTION WILL NEGATE CONJURE SPELLS IF SUMMONED TOO CLOSELY YOUR CHARACTER.***

LASTLY: THIS BUILD ALSO WORKS GREAT IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A TWO HANDED PALADIN STYLE AND HAVE THE DAWNGUARD RUNE HAMMER!
