had to go to a Forsworn camp to kill their leader. I can already see game will be so much harder going the heavy armor and 2 hand weapon route. My Archery is at 22 now so i guess i'll use that for range attacks since only magic i'll focus on is conjuration and maybe restoration oh and enchanting.
ive heard if your sneak and pickpocket are at 100 and you put the perks in the top skill you can actually pickpocket a Forsworn Briarheart's heart and kill him instantly. They are always tough to kill no matter what lvl.
Once you get your sneak and archer level up so that your sneak attacks do 3x damage you'll be fine fighting almost anyone. Plus make some of those bow potions I told you about. The fortify archery/marksman and the slow and paralyze potions... they'll help you out tremendously. You can never have too many of them
