Just started playing a new character and wanted to make a necro type class. Was wondering if it's best to go for summoner or necromancy on the conjuration skill. I thought I read that once you get to a certain level you really can't raise undead on a lot of the mobs so is it worth going that way? --- Live in your world, get pwned in mine.
Oh and if you have twin souls you can have two dead thralls at once... so you never have to search for a dead body, you just keep raising the one you have, but yeah it's a master level spell so you won't get it till you conjuration is really high.
I think atronachs probably do better in combat though and won't die as often, especially if you take the perk to make atronachs 50% more powerful... but I could be wrong. And you can keep summoning them when they are defeated.
