I'm playing just a normal warrior, one handed, light armor, shield etc.

Armor is for sissies. Daedric Warhammer + Fur boots is all you need.

Depends first on what you have available and second on if you maxed enchanting to 100 for the dual enchant perk.

Also race can matter, e.g. if your a Nord you have the 50% frost resist etc.

I'd go with Fortify Light armor, Fortify One-Handed, fortify block, and possibly Fortify Health/Stamina if that's a problem. You will go through a lot of gear as you keep levelling but mostly just pick what you think will be most useful.

As an aside, carry a locket or ring of waterbreathing on you for those occasional times you have to do a lot of swimming. Only weighs .3-.5 ounces and can save you some headache.

For direct damage -- electrical or absorb health. Nords are resistant to frost, many things resist fire quite well. Electrical seems to be the least resisted.

For buffs, enchants that support your skill set, your health and your stamina regen.

Oh, also, enchants that mitigate spell damage are helpful when fighing mages, witches, etc.. Fire and electricty if you're a nord. Otherwise have at least one ring/sheild that has a healthy mitigation of all three direct-damage spells.
