ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

Well yeah but it isn't that good really. You cannot cast,slash and move at the same time.

In my experience, not really. You swing your weapon slower while you're casting, so this setup is not very strong DPS-wise.

If you want a "pure offense" build, I recommend using either a pair of one-handed weapons, or two Destruction spells. Both are much more efficient.

Honestly, anything is viable in this game as long as you don't totally screw up your perks.

That said, my main right now does do 1 handed+destruction. It works fine for me. I feel like I have a little more versatility using destruction in my other hand, rather than a shield or another weapon.

Yeah I was planning on DWing anyway, just wanted to see if it was viable. I assume this game has a lot of replay value? I might end up rolling a Dark Elf "fire mage" as well later on.

idk why people say it's not viable. just take the damn spell out of your left hand when you need to focus on combat so you can block. i just made a spellsword and he's almost like a FF red mage. it's awesome
Nothing shall forestall my return. Even if the morrow is barren of promises.

What I like about destruction+1 handed weapons is that I deal damage even when my opponents are blocking.
