should i stick to building a close combat warrior or can i get some range for my dude? this game is literally over the top. it's like im hesitant to think what i should do next cuz theres so much shiet to do.
btw, this is my first elder scrolls experience so im quite a newb.
Don't worry about it much, you are gonna want to start from scratch after this and explore the sides of the game you did not due to the decisions you made so it's all good.
Don't spread your perks all over the place, you should heavily invest in 2h/Heavy/Smithing then some useful talents like Ennchant and Alchemy boosts so you can enhance your damage output and survivability.
All in all don't worry about a thing just learn the game on this toon and keep the stuff you want to do on your mind for when you build a new character.
