Wandering in Skyrim with an armor that has no health regen enchantment is like being a wabbit during hunting season. Thanks goodness for quicksaves quickshaves, my beard is safe from random necromancers plotting about raising an undead army and take over the world.
Wow, sucks to be him. Can't say he's not a brave man, though.
Mine's gonna be a burglar of sorts, although I had the idea of making him a chargin' warrior, berserker style. I think I'm gonna go for a balance in all skills when I'll level him up more, but for now he's gonna keep living in the Grey Quarter, making ends meet through mercenary jobs and robbing nobles. With some luck, he'll end up with a bounty in all Holds and spend the rest of his days as a bandit leader. If not, guard booty duty.
Sword&shield is great for both of these styles, I'm actually surprised it's not more popular. Nothing like a sneak attack and a power bash to keep them surprised. Or shield sprint at a wimpy mage. omg I'm turning into margot
