I've been abusing the crap out of Conjuration and loving it. The skill is at about 55 at the moment for me.
Flame Atronach is an excellent addition to your fire spells, she stands back generally and lobs fireballs at the bad guys, and looks badass while doing it. If they're close up she'll melee them. Both her attacks will set the enemy on fire, giving your fire spells bonus damage. In addition, if she dies, then her corpse will explode.
Also, I love raising the dead with the necromancy spells, which fall under Conjuration. This time around, you have to cast them on bodies instead of pulling a skeleton or zombie out of your ***. It's just a lot of fun for me to kill a bandit and raise him to help me clean up the others. If you need to, get the half magicka cost perk and it really helps out.
I'm sure a Frost Atronach would be an awesome tank, but I haven't been able to track down a spell for it or a Storm Atronach. Or Transmute. I feel like there's a lot of spells I'm missing.
Little tip, though. Do not summon stuff against a Dragon Priest. They will turn it against you like an *******.
