    What skill line of DK?

    Oh, and DK archer? Eh. Lotta DK skills and up front and personal, not conducive to bow.

    mix between Draconic Power and Earthen Heart, just reached level 15 and have been switching between bow and 1h and shield (or should i skip that and go to 2h?)

    I have since changed my skills and weapons to a Destruction Staff and a 2H, and kill mobs like a boss.

    I made a wood elf Dk last night for bow and 2h late game pvp, but I'm goin to level using aoe etc, reason I picked wood elf is for the increased exp with bows, that way when I get high level it won't be as hard to level bow up for pvp instead of tryin to keep it equal to my level as I pve. That's just my reasons for it tho, I have a nb I was going to use for archer ganking but the dk can do the same thing nb can with it but better I think, due to having more reliable defense and melee capabilities if they don't die before reaching you.

    IMO High Elf DK Archer would be better. They have increased fire damage.

    It's dark elves that have the increased fire damage.

    Anyways, not all dragonknight skills are anti-range. Draconic talons is a great rooting ability for kiting enemies as an archer, and stonefist is a good mid-range knockdown. Dragon blood (green dragon blood in particular) is an awesome self heal and the stamina regen bonus it conveys will let you fire off weapon attacks more often. Even lava whip can be useful as an archer.

    I've recently rolled this myself. Bomer using Draconic Power for +Def and Rooting, Bow for damage. Am finding it works well with the Bow as can Kite easily. I'm actually quite enjoying it.

    Get yourself the Toxic Defiance set and make an interesting bow build out of it! End game gear, so you may be waiting a while. But it's something I'm working on now as a fun non-cookie cutter build :D

    It's decent. I personally would use Imperial instead, but it should work.

    That's not entirely accurate. You are right they have MORE increased fire damage though than the Altmer. The Dunmer also has less Magicka (1% less) than the Altmer, and 10% less magicka regeneration. The Dunmer makes up for it with fire resistance and 6% stamina.

    That was a post from 2014...it was a mysterious time as players were just beginning to explore the game...
    "I definitely rolled there..."
