**Character Intro and Overview [#f60c6dee]

This is not my first ES-character, but this is the first to reach lvl 100. He is built in singelplayer in the R5H patch. I started with nothing and wanted a char with good rate of killing to beat the game as fast as possible. This one really did it and when i was done i realized that he had much more to give. 

**Stats and Attributes [#a1de54da]

Before i've got my endgame-gear i had to put statpoints where it was needed to get a good balance. After that every singel point went into vitality. I still have enough strenght to carry my gear and dexterity to obtain maximum block of 75%.

Here are some numbers (with and without buffs)

Life: 5486/13603
Mana: 1322/1723
Defense: 2217/26604

Well, not much to say. See for yourselves.
I just want to mention that a bit more mana wouldn't hurt and maybe dr%. I've got full resistances even if I face "Conviction" and "Lower resist" at the same time.

**Skills [#yd1348b8]

I've put my skills as following

Elemental

Cyclone armor: 30 
Winter fury: 30
Tornado: 25 (main skill)
Sandstorm: 20
Arctic blast: all remaining points

Shapeshifting

None

Summoning

Cow balloon: 1 (prereq)
Oak sage: 1

This build actually has only one point of prereq. Every other point is helpful in it's own way. Here are some pros and cons about the skills that I've experienced.

Cyclone armor: Very nice abs- and defbonus. Have to be recasted often when hit alot.

Winter fury: Godly in normal and nightmare. Not that effective in hell.

Tornado: Good damage over a large area. A bit tricky to find the right angle to get the maximum damage vs bosses etc. "Amplify damage" makes this skill even better.
Note: I've havn't faced one singel monster that I couldn't kill. Some possessed monsters where a bit slower to kill, but still kinda fast.

Oak sage: Great life buffer, but very fragile.

**Equipment [#ke982d26]

You may notice that most of my items has perfect stats or almost perfect and I promise you that I havn't cheated in any way. It took a long time and alot of perfect gems to accomplish this but it was worth it I think. I'm not much into rare items as you can see. I want to build my chars with items like uniques, sets and runewords. This is because it should be easy for anyone to copy my build.

Anyway, here is my setup of items.
