How will i survive?
I will for one not use any melee weapons whatsoever. Melee is good for bashing down doors but other than that, it fails in every way. Ranged weapons and magic beat it. The first time i played the game, i went the melee route and it was just a waste of time. The game is geared for melee only if you put all your points in heavy armor, strength, and endurance. Fighters are ok, but they are not really recommended as melee is horrible.
I like move silently for mages, priests and ranged users as it allows you to snipe and get away for counterattacks. Melee would be good if you could do that, but i would say you need move silently at 15 which is tough.
