    - have ultimate fun by being an real assassin

    use your dual wield power attack while sneaking
    - insane damage with both daggers + 30x damage (with dark brotherhood gloves)

    use poisons & potions
    - to increase your damage again

    use non-dagger weapons or werewolf (not a must have, but sometimes nice)
    - if you have problems by killing opponents with a non-stealth fight (like pulling dragons with bow), get some axes, blades or maces with high damage
    - or get werewolf to give there evil punches in the face
    - daggers doesn't do a lot of damage in no-stealth but there are "fine", too

    - insane sneak-attack damage
    - can one-shot dragons, giants and so forth
    - extrem funny gameplay

    - there is no perfect dragon mask for this build
    - you often need to pull dragons with a bow, so you start without insane sneak-attack (but dragons are easy)
    - no finishing animation while using the dual wield power-attack
    - starting a fight without sneak attack doesn't do that damage (take some axes or what ever to have a nice no-stealth-damage)

    Pretty generic cookie-cutter for a thief-assassin route. Props in compiling it though.

    If you go to the fortune teller in whiterun she gives you a quest to go get a better set of DB armor. The hood is the only piece i use from it. +35% Bow dmg. There is one mask that gives +20% archer lockpicking and alchemy. but i prefer the hood.

    Krosis Mask

    The Feeble Fortune (activates if you successfully completed Breaching Security and received a bonus from Gabriella) is the quest for the upped armor.
