Anyone Planning Any Wild/Experimental Builds?

I'd like to go down a slightly nontraditional route... Argonian Heavy Armored Rogue class. Dagger/Shield or Sword/Shield to focus on bleeding/poisoning attacks while deflecting damage. A true dirty fighter that utilizes alchemy tricks like potions/poisons, shield bashes, disarms, stuns, blinding powder, shooting you with a hidden hand crossbow, etc. I'd like to keep a pretty even balance between offense and defense. As Heavy Armor + Shield will provide a certain innate level of survivability I'd likely place most points into Stamina while leveling to be able to sprint, block, bash, etc. more. Also, if possible I'd probably dedicate a couple of skill slots to Argonian skills like Histskin or maybe a poison spit if they get anything like that.

In terms of Skyrim (even though the systems wont be the same) it would probably look something like...

Alchemy
Heavy
Block
1handed
Argonian Racials
Plus whatever Rogue-type class skills are available.

Perhaps
Archery (If we can have a sidearm or secondary weapon set)
Illusion (If it's feasible to use maybe a single spell without dropping points into magicka)

Heavy/med armor
Fist fighter (only if viable)
2H if not
Restoration (self/group buffs)
Destruction (debuffs)
Smithing
Werewolf

Mostly a combination of tank and support.

Faction & Race:
Not Set
Orsimer

- No armor
- Only loin cloth
- Dagger in right hand
- Rock (rune) in left hand
- Conjuration (raises slain animals only)
- No potion use
- Only eats skeever tails

Hrm...on second thought, this isn't that experimental for an Orsimer...

Might try a light armor (Cloth), w/one-handed and shield tank spamming Alteration spells for increased armor.

Heavy armour and dual weild maces but before he enters combat he activates alt. Spell for an armour boost


Some think us beasts but I embrace this beasts do only what they need to survive and have no emotions thus they show ruthless brutality without hesitation.
So go ahead call me a mindless beast and Ill show u brutality.

Full blown Illusionist, I have played them in every ES game and they work, so I wonder if I can cast Mayhem, in a battlefield and have 200 people all ravage themselves their friends and whatever else is left standing.

Argonian
1handed or fists if a skill as a second to fight giants for lols ridiculing their clubs
if spells are in hand off hand illusion(hope paralyze will be illusion again)/block
light armor
sneak
and prob alchemy since well who doesn't love money? though sometimes it becomes a prob...sometimes made potions worth 3k gold in skyrim no ventor has that much besides the thief guild fences. Hence why I was forced to become a good enchanter buying all the expensive stuff to sell 1 potion.

Though I suppose there are no traditional routes for most players since most tend to mix it up at least at some point.

Depending on the skills/spells

Rogue
Sneak
Illusion
Alteration
Bow
Bosmer abilities
Light armor
if we get secondary weapons then I'll go into swords or daggers too.

I will finally have the ability to play like I always wanted, Archer then Dagger the shit out of them.

Couldn't do that in WoW... Hunter or Rogue, I had both but I wanted at the same time.

Now we can do that <3 TES

My question is, I know we can use whatever type of weapon we want and we will gain skills as we level them up but should I roll (expeculating here) the archery class or the rogue-like class? Focus on distant or close combat?

I want to have full abilities on both but if I choose Archer, will I have all the abilities for close combat rogue-like?

I'm sure they'll have at least a couple classes that compliments both play styles.

Will they have Medium armor?
If so then I would be:
Medium Armor
Dual Wielding
Regeneration Magic
I will probably try to play as a mix between a rouge and a tank. Wearing medium armor (If available) and stacking a fair amount of stamina health and magicka. (Mainly stamina) so I can deal damdge with dual wielding and keep myself alive with healing. Ideal solo character. :P

They have light (robes/cloth), medium (leather, elven, glass), and heavy (iron, dwarven, daedric).
