Sneak & Alchemy

The Undertaker makes corpses. Alive? He'll gleefully poison them. Undead? Sunfire and Dawnbreaker will return the corpses to their natural state of death. All of this, of course, makes him adept at keeping himself alive.

Alteration & Illusion

The minimalist is just that. No crafting, no enchanted weapons or armor, carries only potions and food items. Use Elsweyr Fondue a lot. You should play as a Breton if you want to experience the full idea of the build.

Illusion & Sneak

A master of shadows that uses non-traditional means, he makes it appear that destruction is merely raining down on you from the heavens while you scatter.

The long cast time is moot if you can safely cast from stealth. They're fun to use, honestly. Restoration so you don't have to carry a ton of food and potions, or craft many, and I tend to find the wards useful. I already have to dump 3 points in there for recovery, so why not two more for best wards and heals?

Yes, you could min-max my setup if you plan on enchanting and key gear, but I personally detest crafting, as it's a grind. Unless I make a character that is based on crafting, I tend to avoid it. Most of my characters share some aspects of my 'minimalist' build, which uses nothing at all in the way of gear. It's just how I like to play. I admit it's not optimal from a perspective of maximum achievable effectiveness and power.

Lol. I guess I deserved that. Was having a bad day and so many crappy builds. Yours is the one I chose to hit with my own opinion of what a toon should be. I apologize.

Unlike in illusion, dual casting in restoration does not empower the level of affected creatures, but the duration of effect. I never take restoration beyond adept level unless its a really important game mechanic for a character concept. But you do need to at least be adept, for your concept. Maybe expert for the circle...

This is one hell of a mess. All those points wasted in illusion. But you skip the three perks that empower your spells... You could just kill them.

Illusion is only useful if you max it, use it as both offense and defense. You just wasted all those points. The whole build is a mess...

1 third magicka does not work for a destruction character. 70/30 is the least you can get by with. The smithing and weapon skills are redundant. Pick one. You're a magic user or a weapon user. Mixing and wasting perks makes both weaker.
