    lol how on earth are you getting beaten by rats, are you a pure mage?

    Personally I started out as a Dark Elf and he is now completely uber at Lvl 17, very good with blade and magic. I created a custom class too, it's worth taking the time to make a good fella when starting the game. :)

    My majors are (I think).

    Blade
    Block
    Light Armour
    Destruction
    Conjuration
    Restoration
    Alteration

    Birthsign is The Mage.

    Get a weapon asap and back off combat to use healing spells when things get heavy. Also dont forget to summon a skeleton to distract monstes so they can take a beating for you while you hammer away. :)
