I can never get far in any of the crafting skills. No matter how much I roleplay I just can't see it as anything other than grinding. Like most people have mentioned, pickpocketing is another one. Though I'd love to try the trick where you kill a briar heart by pickpocketing it. All the offensive magic schools. I'll use illusion, alteration, and restoration. But the offensive schools just aren't as satisfying as a greatsword or bow and arrows. Heavy armor. When I make warriors, they're hairy barbarians, not a tin men.
