@H-ost

I do that with my Dark Elf Archer. She picks apart a Giant with a single arrow while crouching. But my skills are still pretty well rounded other than a few of the mage minors like illusion, conjuration, restoration.

I can easily bump those up those skills though by training with a teacher at the college, then selling them a bunch of items I don't need to get my money back.

Ayup. Ebony bow of Frost, Ebony arrows, high Archery skill, Helm + gauntlets + ring + necklace of Archery, and Sneak attack and I can usually take down a Mammoth in 2 or 3 hits.

I don't recall what variety of dragon it was but, once, I even took a Elixir of True Shot plus all the previously mentioneds and took a dragon in two hits. First hit forced it down, second hit took it out. Although, I am unsure if my follower got any arrows in too. When she does, I usually have something to recover and that time I did not.

I use a modifed bow, gloves, helmet, and ring... but even with an Iron or Forsworn arrow, those Giant's tumble in one shot.

Yep. Most characters have become so easy to 'one shot kill' taht I have seriously considered upping the game difficulty to Master.

I'm on Master now, but my second character just developed skills way faster than my first, so the one shot kills still work most of the time.

I was getting close to being that strong with my assassin/thief but my damned "Character ADHD" keeps me wanting to make new characters...

My first character has 100 sneak and 95+ archery. Then I made 3 other characters. My Character ADHD is the same.

I just realised last night that I have 100 Sneak.

I am very near to having 100 in Smithing (95), Archery(98), and Heavy Armor (90).

The only tree I have taken more than a perk or two with is Archery.

I have the top level perk for sneaking. It makes the game too easy. Just crouch and no one can find you.
