Better to heal with potions in battle and use the magic after the fight, imo --- You may not be as good as I am, I may not compare to you, but until you prove either; I'd wager we'd both be better off staying quiet about it.
That's my favorite way to play. Using potions to heal may be slightly faster at first but once you level Restoration and get higher level spells things get better. Grand Healing gives you a really big boost, especially if you have that perk that boosts healing spells by 50%. Grand Healing also heals any allies nearby so it is useful for keeping followers alive.
>>Ah, that's a shame. Any combination of a melee weapon and spell that is worth noting?
conjuration. Twin souls+Conjure Dremora Lord+Atromancy= 120 seconds of 2 Dremora Lords. Switch to a shield after conjuring. Really helps out at higher difficulties. --- http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/9261/sitchtf.gif
Honestly, you should play how you wish. It may not be the most effective way to play but you can play it that way. Once you get some perks and items to boost restoration you be formidable enough. --- You may not be as good as I am, I may not compare to you, but until you prove either; I'd wager we'd both be better off staying quiet about it.

Don't listen to this guy, potion spamming is almost as lame as zero cost fireball spamming. To answer your question, any one handed weapon can be used effectively with just about any spell. Some of my favourites are muffle, a ward, ice storm(or chain lightning), paralyse, or like they guy above said, a conjuration spell. --- "This is America. Kidnapping a Christian?

I always play with healing magic in one hand and a sword in the other. It's useful as heck. And TC? welcome to Tamriel. --- I'm ballin, ballin, ballin, Jarl ballin, ballin, ballin, swag. PSN: bradeli Steam: IronticsDragonLord Gamertag: AsternGoblin6
