Gear and Item Set Info


This is a Four Bar Build: Do not try this as a beginner! It will ruin your early experience and you need good champion points to support it anyway.

Pay Attention to the armour Weights.

Heavy Cuirass of Hundings Rage - Divines and Stam Enchant

Medium Belt, Boots, Legs, Gloves -Divines and Stam Enchant

Monster: Iceheart, Mighty Chudan or Molag Kena - make sure one piece is light and one is medium and enchant Stamina

Weapon 3 x1 sword Undaunted Infiltrator enchant weapon/spell damage

Weapon 4 x1 Shield Undaunted Infiltrator enchant Stamina

Jewelery all Undaunted Infiltrator enchanted with Weapon Damage.

The reason I picked Hundings Rage over Spriggan's Thorns is that You will find a set of Undaunted Infiltrator but it might not be precise as the ideal set above so with Hundings you can fill the gaps exactly as needed, plus you can make it look however you want which for a build this insanely difficult it is a nice bonus.


General Info


This is a Four Bar Build! Don't try to build this as a beginner! It will take ages and ruin your early game enjoyment.

Minimum Skill Points needed to even make it work: 157 

If you want to be a crafter you will need even more.

Welcome to the most interesting and fun build I have ever made! You will never get bored and the combos you can do switching betwen bars will leave you howling with laughter and merryment.

It doesn't boast top numbers: But it does magic and physical average to good standards  leaving you with plenty of resources to keep going, mine is a crafter as well, cause you know, why not go crazy?... and I love running it for farming.

It uses sword and shield on the Werewolf line as a 'behind the scenes' buff on werewolf defence, it will make your were very tough to kill and your monster set will proc through your were too. This is NOT a tank however.

Werewolf Skill List

Feral Pounce, Hircine's Fortitude, Rousing Roar, Howl of Agony, Claws of Life.

Overload Skill List

Lightening Flood, Mages Wrath, Degeneration, Inner Light, Boundless Storm

There are a tone of passives, I will list them all.

Daedric Summoning: Power Stone, Daedric Protection

Dark Magick: Unholy Knowledge, Persistence, Exploitation

All Storm Calling

All One Hand and Shield, excluding 'Deadly Bash'

All Duel Wielding

Light Armour: Recovery, Evocation, Spell Warding

Medium Armor Everything

Heavy Armor: Resolve, Constitution, Juggernaught

All Werewolf Passives

All Fighters Guild

All Mages Guild

What kind of results can you expect? Why bother?

Overload Spell dps is about 8k

Weapon daggers is about 11k

Weapon sword and shield is about 10k

Were Form, claws is about 15k with 4k DoT

Its the combo's really, you can do some mad things and I am sure I haven't tried every crazy idea.
