What character do you play in Oblivion? (in Off-topic)

Thank to this community, I finally bought XBOX360 and Oblivion. The game is worth it!

I'm playing a blade heavy armour knight with light healing and destruction skills.

How do you play the game? I wonder how mages fare in the game.

i play a Blade Heavy Armor Imperial Warrior with Restoration, Athletics and Acrobatics.

My favorite so far is the heavy mage. My usual strategy is to use Conjuration to summon a helper and then tank by casting absorb health spells.

Race: Breton (best race out there)
Focus: Magic
Sign: The Lady
Skills: Armorer, Heavy Armor, Conjuration, Restoration, Alchemy, Alteration, Mysticism.

All of my skills come from Endurance, Intelligence, or Willpower only. And quite frankly those are the only stats I need to raise anyhow. (Aside from Strength, but that's only so I can carry more loot.) The only mistake I made was taking Mysticism over Destruction.

I played a custom class I made up, although he is a acrobat at heart. He is skilled with a couple magic things, security, stealth, blades and alchemy. I made the class called Weird, because I wasn't sure what he would be otherwise. I only have one master skill so far. Alchemy. I can make any potion I want with only one ingredient! :)

I'm getting my other skills up there, but I use alchemy the most still so thats why it is so high.

I also wear a mix of Heavy and Light armor, I carry a blade and bow and some weird staffs. In combat, I have a couple nasty fire spells, but I mainly rely on my ability to jump very high, like maybe 10-15 feet to evade my attackers. Since my HP and my armor don't protect me as much as I would like.

Battlemage with Blade, Heavy Armor, Destruction, and Restoration.
High Elf with The Mage. I wanted to go Atronach but I found the summoning ghosts and letting them beat on you cheesy and slow.

*sniff* I want to play Oblivion! But I have neither the time to play nor the money to upgrade my PC. Why does everyone keep teasing me by talking about how good the game is?

If you want, I could poke at it's weak points if you want Meal.

I would like that also Vestax... stupid expensive Xbox 360...

Expensive but worth it....

Spellsword vampyric dark elf. Born under the sign of the lady.

Grand Champion at the arena and member of the black hand. Also booted out of the mages guild for killing that old guy in the tower.

On top of all that I was born under the sign of the magician. My guy is jack-of-all-trades-master-of-one. ;)
