whats your favorite armor/weapon combo?

#1 Posted by Talis12 (488 posts) -

With my first character, Talis, i was completely into everything Ebony.. roamed around in the complete Ebony armor set with every Ebony weapon possible, but was totally digging the warhammer..

now with my second character, Sonja, i started out in light armor but am currently wearing the Blades armor.. im also loving the dual wield with the two samurai katana's, Blades sword and Dragonbane

what combo's do you guys/gals roam with?

Mace in main hand, long sword in off-hand, switch to dagger in main hand when I'm sneaking. It's usually Mace of Molag Bal/Mehrunes Razor and Ebony Sword, wearing the Krosis dragon priest mask and the rest is Nightingale Armor.

I'm using the shrouded set (Legendary) and a daedric bow

My Spellblade is using Ebony Mail with matching Ebony Gauntlets and Greaves. My mage is switching between Nocturnal Robes, Psijic Robes, and Triss' Armor from The Witcher 2.

i see there is more love for the ebony stuff on GB..

i love the ebony mail, but sometimes in quests it can get annoying if you are to close to people and they start attacking you..quest fail, start over

yeh the Nightingale armor is what ended up with on my first character, it has that ninja feel to it lol

Hey, if some dude's armor started leaking & spewing black poisonous goo all over you, you'd get mad too!

I role with a dragon helmet with the rest being deadric in build enchanted to make me a tank mage. Destruction costs me virtually nothing and the other enchantments are either magic regen or fortify magic. I do not encumber myself with weapons. I summon my sword or my bow.

I have drarven armor, building up my heavy armor leveling, was using two handed weapons for a while, went back to shield and sword and so far lifes been pretty decent, been wearing the masks I've gotten off of the cave mage and the whirlwind sprint stone mage as well.

Glass sword/lightning magic combo with Thieves Guildmasters armor

I had all nightingale armor except for the chest cuz i used the Ebony Armor. Just looks like an amazing combo and when i crouched i looked extra cool. normally used conjured swords

The Masque of Clavicus Vile with variously enchanted Elven armor. Then I use a glass bow for stealth, Mace of Molag Bol for when the shit hits the fan, and Sanguine Rose for crowd control. So far it has worked pretty well except when those damn ice pick mages kill my running speed by kneecapping me.

Ebony mail, Ebony boots, a Dragon Priest Mask and Daedric Gauntlets to get my punching damage up.  I just wish you could turn that Dragon Priest hood black....  That brown hood just doesnt go with it.

Double Destruction magic. The second level fire skill. Level 29 right now 55 hours in. Really low defense light armor I have had since like 4 hours in which gives me 17% decrease in destruction magicka used per cast, and 75% faster magicka regeneration.

Currently rocking a combination of Master Thieves' guild & Nightingale armor. Mainly using Nightingale bow and Mace of Molag Bol.

@sideshow: I can see why you wouldn't want the Mace of Molag Bol. You can easily enchant any other weapon with soul trap to achieve the same effect and have a faster, more powerful base damage level.

Armor: Nightingale armor(Agent of stealth)

Weapons: Daedric Daggers and Daedric bow

i wish i had the patience to go stealth.. im a rusher (goes back to the first FPS days).. sometimes i try to sneak but always end up bashing and smashing.. taking off heads with the hammer just feels good :P

Full daedric, except for the helmet, I use the shrouded hood (mage armor), but mainly for awesome looks. Even more awesome if you have a blind left eye in the game.
