My Pure Mage Strategy for Elder Scrolls Skyrim Is Based on the Late 1980’s Ganon Character from The Legend of Zelda
I ultimately decided upon a pure mage strategy my Elder Scrolls Skyrim character, Azrah Gestahl, based upon the early manifestations of Ganon in The Legend of Zelda series from the 1980’s. Although my character is mostly good, serving as the Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold, a member of the Imperial Army, and possessing a healthy penchant for destroying bandit hideouts, the general composition of skills leans heavily toward a very powerful mage in a robe capable of extreme conjuration and destruction, with very strong illusion, alteration, and regeneration knowledge. I’m not talking about modern day Ganon, mind you. I’m talking about Ganon as he was back then – magic artifacts, conjuring minions, blasting fireballs, all draped in a cowl as he sought world domination.
