    do you use mods? there are some magic mods that make magic in general much better gameplay

    but the unmodded destruction is underwhelming at later levels

    does summoning stuff make up for most of it?

    summoning does alright, magic is still overall not very good in my opinion but you can certainly get through the game with it

    Level enchanting and alchemy from the get-go. You should be able to craft gear to reduce cost in any school by 100% very quickly. When you're at that stage, you can't really lose. Destruction levels up much quicker than any traditional combat skills, so at 75 you can buy expert spells which is pretty much as good as it gets, master take way too long to cast, the lightning one might be worth it for bosses. It's fine, just slower than weapons.

    Get up to 100 and you can reduce the cost of two schools by 100%. I like to do either Conjuration or Destruction with Restoration being the secondary enchant.

    And if Redguard does come out, I expect you'll be waiting for a giant hammer to fall somewhere?

    Dude saying magic is overrated is SEVERELY tripping. I dont stack any melee or damage mitigation because at a certain point you one hit almost everything with a double power attack. But magic resist is awesome because the first time you see a Master Necromancer or Fire Mage he will almost 1 hit you. Plus magic casters scurry around like crazy never stopping, it grinds my gears.

    I just stack magic resist so I can withstand the OOM they give when charging at them for the first 3 seconds. Then its whack whack whack and their dead.

    I prefer melee myself but my sister does magic and it seems WAY funner, except the fact that theres like no sneaking with magic.

    But in my experience magic is OP. =)

    The thing about magic is that exact "at certain point" you used. At a certain point, Destruction is useless because it doesn't scale with your skill. The spells all have a set damage. Melees and archers also have the "Fortify" enchantments to increase their damage...but the "Fortify <Magic School>" enchantments reduce their cost instead. The end result is that come lv 40 mages do pitiful damage.

    That's kind of the reason why no one plays an unmodded mage anymore.
