Are there disadvantages to wearing armor as a mage casting spells?
I am playing a mage in skyrim (100% magicka increase per level). So basically my health is pretty low.
Now cloth items do not seem to have high armor ratings. I thought I could use heavy armor instead.
I thought of using the Astronach Forge to create deadric armor, so I do not have to invest any perks in smithing.
Furthermore I am currently at 100 enchanting, thus I can use very good enchants on any item, like heavy armor.
Say I invest some time and perks in heavy armor and remove the speed penalty, then heavy armor should be the best way to go.
Do I miss something?
