Melee vs. Spellcaster imbalance
Ok, I am not a Skyrim expert. I am trying to figure out why the game seems so imbalanced in terms of spellcasters vs. melee characters. Let me explain.
I had a Nord spellcaster who I wanted to be like a priest. I used a 1-handed mace, the other hand was resto for healing, and I wore light armour. I died all the time, and it was difficult to take down mobs.
I restarted as a Orc weilding two-handed melee weapons. I use necklaces and a ring that improve my two-handed melee weapon, and my damage is insane. I basically can walk up to any mob, minus a dragon, do a running charge and kill them in 1 swing. Dragons take a few swings, but my health will never drop low. It is not a challenge, and I feel like I am now in god mode.
Can anyone explain why there is such an imbalance in gameplay? Even on higher difficulty settings, the orc owns everything that I've run across. Even ice wraiths, drueger lords, and dragons. I mean, just a level 3 shout to know anything over, then charge, swing, dead. My only challenge is trying to keep my inventory below my maximum carrying weight.
