    Archer and dual-wielding dagger.
    Because stealth is OP :face:

    Jake:Huh?I'm sure I heard something...eh...just a rat.

    I also love conjuration mage(using only weapon summons) with full daedric armor. Battle Mage ftw! :face:

    I prefer to slit everyone's throats and steal all the treasure before they realise they're dead.

    Archery+Conjuration magic has been the style that find that I have more fun with.

    I generally avoid magic except for healing. Its either really weak (destruction) or way over powered (illusion, necromancy)

    I favor the bow. I'm one of those guys who headshots little black blurs at the edge of draw distance.

    I like to sneak up and plunge a large sword into the back of the strong ones, you know the ones that might be able to put up a fight?

    Then I summon my friends from Oblivion and we have a party turning bandits into ragdolls. happy

    I used only a bow and stealth with only cloth armor on Master. That way if I was ever caught I had to run just to stay alive. Provided for a fun experience.

    Sneak/Illusion/Archery
    Frenzying a bunch of bandits or Falmer into killing each other is so fun to do. And then you can just one shot the last guy cause he won't have any health left.

    Stealth archer/mage lol!.

    Favorite thing to do is be a stealth conjurer that assasinates enemies with the bound bow, or summons things into a room without being detected.

    That or a heavy armor khajiit mage, you get ridiculous unarmed damage, and if you enchant all of your armor right, you can cast an entire school of magic for free, which is scary if you choose destruction or illusion. Destruction reasoning is obvious, but for illusion, it can be awesome to run around able to go invisible at the drop of a hat and turn enemies against one another, all while sneak attacking anything that so much as looks at you funny.

    Uhh, right at this very moment I am playing a Bound Bow/Atronach summoner, Khajiit stealth-mage who wears heavy armor. lol!

    Curious as to why the title is Skyrim Mages when it's a question about what you play as in Skyrim.

    On-topic: My main is kind of a jack of all trades, though that was not the initial intention. He uses a greatsword, fire based magic and is a pro at sneaking.

    My favorite type of play is actually a hunter. I've left the first real quest on hold and just built a house and hunt animals with no dragons in the way.

    I generally prefer playing as a sneaking archer though.

    my only playthrough was with a dual fist heavy armor argonian who knew some healing magic and maxed out heavy armor skill... punching out the last dragon boss... just sad would have been even easier if i'd chosen a khajit but i like the lizards...

    I use a pure archery character. I literally have not used a melee weapon once in the game. I use a bit of stealth and light armor. But I am very strictly bow and arrow only. I have also dabbled in crossbows. Also have never touched magic. I think it ruins the fun.

    shadow warrior + assassin's blade + highly upgraded dagger = free 15 times damage sneak attack at any time. So much fun to just pull a sneak attack on an angry two hander (hate those guys, especially since they pull off cinematic kills more often than anything else, and I hate enemies getting those since it feels overpowered coming from them) and suddenly instead of getting smashed I am slitting his throat. twisted
