Before I am engulfed in the doom-fire of heresy, hear me out. Heavy Armor, Archery (duh), Alchemy (Fort. Marksman, Slow, etc), NO Sneak, and Enchanting. RP as an Imperial, w/ Imperial heavy gear and Imperial bow (until I get a crossbow). Any tips ?

I think maybe he means Combat Archer. As opposed to a Stealth Archer.

Add Block with Power Bash and maybe DB. That way you can melee with your bow, which at the least gives you time to switch weapons.

Crossbow has less control than a bow because you can't cancel the reload. Really annoying.
Shoot first, think never.

No melee weaponry. Just bows and crossbows.

Go Crossbow then. They get a 75% chance to stagger enemies once you get Power Shot(50% stagger from the perk gets added to the 25% innate stagger on crossbows).

How does “Force w/o Effort” factor into that 75% innate stagger ?

That effect might only factor for blows that consume stamina, so power attacks or bashes. It's worth a shot though, since the other meditations aren't that good(health regen while Ethereal or a tiny boost to Flame Breath).

And if nothing else it will still reduce you getting staggered by 25%

I checked some old topics regarding this and both theonyxpheonix and IamI3rian were curious if they stacked. Brian and another poster were going to test for it but never reposted any results... :(
