    Hello Rahpsodi,

    I’ve created over a dozen characters during the course of my adventuring. The archetype advice starting on p23 of the guide provides a huge amount of help in this regard. But I always find myself going back to The Archer archetype – a Wood Elf with a focus on Archery and Sneak, and wearing Light Armor. As I progress, I add more focus on my Stamina statistic than the guide suggests (so I can use Eagle Eye as often a possible), as I never get tired of slow-motion stealth kills. Dropping Bandits so they fall screaming from the bridge linking the Valtheim Towers is always enjoyable!

    Bosmer Archers are my favorite as well. I'll have to keep this advice in mind when I go back to playing R'chel.

    thanks to the guide i decided to make a breton battlemage. it was a very successful model to go by. i def wanted a mage and wearing robes just isnt my style. when paired with certain stones and enchantments to my armour i found it pretty easy to move up to master difficulty early on. since then i branched out into melee and most recently sneaking/archery. if i were to make another character i would focus on archery. very fun stuff.
