    Race: Bosmer

    Combat Skills: Archery, One-Handed

    Supporting Skills: Sneak, Light Armor, Alchemy, Pickpocket

    Perks to Take:
    Archery - Overdraw 1-3, Critical Shot 1, everything else
    One-Handed - Armsman 1-3, Dual Flurry 2, Dual Savagery, Fighting Stance
    Smithing - Steel Smithing, Arcane Blacksmith, any others you need for your preferred armor and weapons
    Light Armor - Agile Defender 1-3, Custom Fit, Unhindered, Wind Walker
    Sneak - Stealth 1, Backstab, Deadly Aim, Muffled Movement
    Pickpocket & Alchemy - Your choice

    Faction: Thieves Guild

    Summary: Snipe from afar, but if the battle gets too close, whip out dual daggers, use Elemental Fury, and go crazy ninja on their butts. Use Alchemy to craft potions to keep yourself healed, and poisons to help hurt or main your enemies. Since you'll be a master sneak, it only make sense to use that skill to steal your weight in gold and goods from everyone you meet.

    Class name:Subtelty Rogue
    Race: Khajiit(any)
    Combat skills:One-handed(Daggers/sword+dagger)
    Supporting skills: Sneak,Alchemy,Illusion(if you must)
    Weapons:Daggers or sword plus dagger(dual blades of woe for awesomeness)
    Summary/Guide:
    The whole Idea is that your running a world of warcraft style rogue. Between backstabs with daggers and using elemental fury to shred your foes(think slice and dice) you can easily stand up in combat just as well as many warriors with the added benefit of sneaking and stabbing. Also remember to abuse shadow warrior+stealth roll to get sneak attacks in combat(tricky but doable).

    Race: Khajiit
    Combat skills: One-Handed, Archery, Smithing & Enchanting (at least you can smith your enchanted armor i.e Shrouded Armor)
    Supporting skills: Sneak, Light armor, Alchemy
    Weapons: Dagger, of course! and for head-to-head battle, use 2 enchanted scimitars (they're cool!)
    Faction: Dark Brotherhood.
    Perks you must take: Assassin's Blade, Dual Savagery, Custom Fit, 5x Overdraw (Archery Branch)
    Summary: shot your arrow to distract group of Bandits, then proceed to kill the Chief only. or kill the bandits one by one with your bow, leaving the chief alone and afraid like a girl.. confront him, tell him "this is your lucky day", and then Paralyze him so he will feel no pain while you slash him with your blade..

    nah I prefer Ancient Shrouded Armor set.. because my enchanting sucks :p

    maxed out the attack stat by wearing some enchanted ring or necklace too, I have two >100 damage Scimitars (with help from supporting apparels) with Fire enchantment (does 20 Fire Damage).. and it can 2-3HKO an elder dragon :Dragonborn:

    BTW do you happen to know how muffle work ?

    While playing i had the impression that the darkbrotherhood boot do not make you completely silent. I also got the impression that the nightgale boots were much better than the darkbrotherhood ones, but it may be only an impression.

    There is no muffle pourcentage on the class boots, but the perk muffle skill is described as reducing noise by 50%. Possibly the boots do have a hidden muffled number too.

    Well i was about to start a rogue.
    Got ou of helgen and now i have a decision to make.
    Light armour or no armour
    But its gonna be like this

    Argonian
    Dual daggers
    Sneak, illusion, alteration OR light armour
    5/5 armsman plus dual perks an stamina reduction perks(cant waste attibute points on stamina. They are needed for health and magika)
    The whole sneak tree
    basically all of illusion tree
    No loyalties. Whoever pays the most.

    Its similar to a nightblade i guess. Sneak around divide and conquer the enemy. Strictly no bows. Ive played not even an hour of this guy and realised how much of a crutch i used to use bows for. So much better to let someone get a half glance of me or make a noise in one place and move myself in time to avoid them. Putting out torches and leaving them around like a polyergeist in a horror movie. Back stab is the main damage. But also i can survive open combat with limited enemies falling back on illusion if i get overrun.
    For shouts its gonna be throw voice elemental storm and become ethereal. The only other thin i want from this guy is pickpocketting. Totally stealing some guys sword and then tapping him on the shoulder
