No tricks like sneak or destruction permament stun. Just straight fight and maybe at legendary /master setting while you are level 8-10 without any super great. Generally when i see bandit leader with shield and sword i am not so much afraid. I know its hard to kill that son of a gun but its just that, not very dangerous. But the 2 handers...damn those things scare me. They have tons of range and can kill cam you in 2-3 hits. Which ones you hate?
