I currently have a 2H Heavy Armor Nord who smiths most of his own armor and conjures up some undead/atronachs and uses some frost destruction for ranged attacks, but I am really beginning to want to reroll.

 

I would like to make an Archer/Dual wielder who can call upon a pet for most of his fights. I know that there is the Conjure Familiar spell, but the wolf sucks by mid teens and I have yet to see any upgraded familiar spells. I read somewhere that the Illusion tree has a Command Animal spell but does anyone know the best way to run this type of a character?

Any ideas would be appreciated :)

 

In the mean time, google will be my friend.

Actually I am thinking of taking this path.

I am only level 18 so plenty of time to switch my main of destruction to conjuration.

Apparently there are no spells in illusion for summoning.

This is lifted from wikki:http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/TES_V:_Skyrim
The following are the confirmed Conjuration spells:
Bound Sword - Creates a magic sword for 120s. Sheathe it to dispel.
Conjure Familiar - Summons a Familiar for 60s wherever the caster is pointing.
Raise Zombie - Reanimate a weak dead body to fight for you for 60s.
Bound Battleaxe - Creates a magic battle axe for 120s. Sheathe it to dispel.
Conjure Flame Atronach - Summons a Flame Atronach for 60s wherever the caster is pointing.

Yeah Im trying to not do conjuring because there isnt really an animal thing in there aside from Conjure Familiar. I was hoping someone would give their experience on using the Illusion tree to get an animal companion.
