    Hey guys. Ima start a Death Knight build. I have it kinda planed out. Heres what i have.

    Race: Breton?
    Primary Skills: 1H, Conjuration
    Secondary: Heavy Armor,Sneak
    Armor: Ebony Mail , Rest of the Ebony set.
    Weapons: War-axes (My fav 1H) intill Mace of Molag Bal "Bound weps at the start?"
    Stone: Lover?
    Perks: Armsman 5/5 Jugernaught 3/5 Reainimate side of Conjur. *Maybe bound wep side too* Stealth 1/5 Backstab

    Okay so basicly the first guy i kill I revive so he helps. Then when i have enough Zombies i could cast a bound wep and dual wield for max damage. I choose sneak for a skill for the tougher enimies to be on my side. 6x 1H damage will help alot. Any sugestions? Plz give some advice or ideas.

    I think if you choose normal weapons instead of bound weapons you can dish out so much more damage with maxed smithing. And I think you should get some cold destruction spells too, you can slow enemies with them and hit them with your War-Axe/Mace/Sword :D
    If you have dawnguard you can summon 2 Wrathman, which is awesome, they are some kind of Draugr/Skeleton - they suit a Death Knight - and they are also more powerful than a Dremora Lord :D
    You should consider riding Arvak too, it is an awesome horse for a Death Knight...

    You might wanna try the Falmer Heavy Set, it is pretty beastly, plus it provides as much armor as an ebony set.

    thats good man :D For master difficulty I recomend getting the highest amount of armor you can, get the lord stone, and get the agent of mara buff. This buff, the lord stone and your racial bonus will give you 65% magic resist, which will help your survival against dragons and casters :D

    Looks a good build, simple yet strong, However,: just one point, why no shield for some protection, seems very open if enemies get close, and they will in tight spots, ,

    PS, and sneaking in heavy armour is seriously difficult, doable but difficult,

    Your right about sneaking. Thats why i may enchant boots with muffle get the muffled movement perk in sneak and ebony mail. Ive decided against sheilds because i simply dont like them!

    Hey i have a question about the racial ability dragon skin. When you use it dose it stack against you current ressist? Exp: I have 50% ressist. So if i use it dose it give a boost to 100%? If it does im going to start doing that and Leroying dragons.

    No. The Breton racial power gives 50% spell absorption for some time. The spell absorption is not an effect that reduces magic damage, it is instead a chance of negating all of the magic damage cast upon you, while gaining mana equivalent to the mana cost of the spell. I will make this more clear to you: Bretons can use Dragonskin to give them a 50% chance to negate the damage of a spell cast upon him while gaining the manacost of the spell to your manapool. You can get a permanent 100% spell absorption (thats right, you will actually be immune to ALL MAGIC DAMAGE through a simple process: First of all you have to level your restoration to 70, become a vampire and pick the Necromage perk - you have to become a Vampire and get the perk BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE. Then, you activate the Atronach stone, granting you 50% spell absorption, and then you can get the Alteration Tree Perk that gives 30% spell absorption. To sum it up, you will have 80% passive spell absorption PLUS 25% from the Necromage Perk - 80x0.25 = 20, 80 + 20 = 100. So at the end you will have a 100% chance of COMPLETELY NEGATING ALL SPELL DAMAGE, while gaining mana for each spell cast on you. This makes spell absorption way better than Magic Resist, because despite getting the manacost, it doesnt have a cap! While Magic Resist caps at 85%, you can get a 100% chance of negating all spell damage with spell absorption!
