Destruction

Depends on your mods. Destruction is kind of weak without some better scaling for damage output. Conjuration beats out all other schools, hands down. Restoration makes anyone's character's life easier.

Of course, Conjuration can be used in tandemp with any of the other schools--or you can just hid behind rocks and let your deadra do the figthing.

Thanks guys, Think im going to go with conjuration after seeing how epic i look murdering draugur(or however you spell it :P) With a bound sword
tonyrayvick Apr 11 @ 5:44pm 
Yeah, I want to make a conjuration sorceror (with heavy armor and backup spells in restoration and alteration) that uses bound weapons. It's on my to-make list. He'll probably be an Altmer.

Alteration. Magic resistance and spell absorb anyone? Destruction and conjuration are fun, as is illusion, but Restoration and Alteration, IMO, give great passive perks.

Alteration is kind of limited for a specialization, though. It has to be paired with something to be effective, unless you've got a spells mod like Apocalypse Spells. That makes specializing in Alteration totally worth it.

And 50% magicka regen without enchanting anything, wards can absorb oncoming spells, while Alteration can give you 30% magic resistance, and 30% spell absorb. Lol, some stuff isn't great for conjurors, but for Destruction or Illusion mages, holy moly, you can become a magic tank.

No you're not. You need not grab every perk in each tree. Usually I do three schools per build. Alteration and Restoration are usually the constants and then either Illusion, Conjuration, or destruction.

Well, all types of Schools HAVE thier uses. I happen to favor a good Fireball spell in my left hand, and a Mass Pyralisis spell in the right. Or even a Calm spell *Kaboom* all the guys are good for a good Chaos spell to make them kill eachother. And you use Invisibility (with a good stealth skill) and watch the Fun as they tare eachother apart FOR you, and then allz ya gotta do is Ice shard the Victor for his troubles. So there are some uses for ALL the spells in the game. (although Situational)
.....

OR EVEN, after you *make everyone kill eachother* (O_O) you can Resurrect a few (Or more with Mods) :D and you have a hwole ARMY >XD of former enemy's turn Zombie allies >:D he he he HEH HAAAHAHAHAAAAAAH >8] ah, its Good to be EVIIL :)
