So, I started playing again, from the start. I can't help but fall into familiar patterns, though. I've always liked sword and board, and while I do try to force myself to play differently, I do always end up playing the same way.
Anyway, I haven't looked into mods for Skyrim, but I'm curious if any of you know of a mod to increase the power of conjured weapons, at least to be in line with what you can get through normal weapons. I really like the idea of a magic-based melee, but conjured weapons aren't very strong once you get mid-game, compared to what you can do through smithing and enchanting.
I'll probably still end up maxing sneak/archery/one-handed weapons again.
