This is the build you're gonna have to do

Max shield. Take ALL the perks
Max Heavy Armor. Take ALL the perks, except for the dumb ones.
Max Enchanting. Be sure to take all the effectiveness perks.
Max Smithing.

Necessary items
~Gloves of the Pugilist (disenchant these badboys)
~Spellbreaker (OG shield that absorbs puny spellcaster damage)
~Amulet of Stendarr (i think its the +10% blocked damage one)
~Ring of Fisting (custom ring you can enchant from gloves of the pugilist to give +10 fisting skill)
~Badass gloves of beatdown technique (enchant the highest legendary heavy gloves you can make with +unarmed and +shield block)

You need to take Juggernaut and Fists of Steel.

You gonna have to get the gloves of the pugilist and disenchant them badboys. Put the enchantment on some heavy gloves.

Run around and shield bash people and punch them to death.

When you get 100 shield, make sure you get shield charge. This makes you invincible 1v1 and in most cases, 2v1.

Mid game ~ your gloves should be around +50 armor. With proper enchanting, they're going to do +10 damage per hit. Also, you can have a ring with the same effect, giving you +20 damage per fist. This is good.

Since you do 70 damage per swing, you'll be able to punch dragons, mammoths and giants do death with ease. At level 50+ you have the ability to solo ancient dragons with your fist and shield. If he uses his bad breath attack, raise your bubble shield and make him jelly.



[Fighting Tips]

Any Melee Fighter Humanoid
You dominate these noobs. The best strategy is to raise your shield and run straight at them to knock them down and punch them.

Bandits. With Ebony Arrows.
These guys are a complete pain to deal with. The best strategy is to raise your shield and run straight at them to knock them down and punch them.

Wizzads/Necromancers
These guys are a pain to deal with. The best strategy is to raise your shield and run straight at them to knock them down and punch them.

Bears/Sabertooth Tigers/Spriggans
These guys are a pain to deal with. The best strategy is to raise your shield and run straight at them to knock them down and punch them.

Clustsers of Falmer. In Long hallways
These guys are a pain to deal with. The best strategy is to raise your shield and run straignt at them to knock them down and punch them. Its best to run straight through every single one of them to knock them all down.

Dwemer Balls
These guys are a pain to deal with, especially if they come in two's. Try your best to separate yourself from them. If you cant, use your beatdown fists to break them. Your sheild should absorb and mitigate damage.

Optimus Prime Dwemer
This guy is a pain. You'll find the dwemer Optimus Prime inside many deep and dark places, where there are fouler things than orcs. You cant knock him down, so use your shield to block his stupid steam move and run behind his legs and punch them.

Dragons
These guys aren't too hard. Use your shield to absorb their breath and punch their tails off. Super EZ with dragonrend.

Giants/Mammoths
They're too big for you to stagger. Circle around them and punch. If fighting the giant 1v1, be sure to avoid his big club. It hurts.
The mammoth 1v1 is really easy. Just hit his butt.
If 2v1, and your laning partner/jungler is no where to be found, try to separate the targets. The giant is usually easier to take down because the mammoth is fatter, and the giant has slower attack patterns.

(yelling I'M THE JUGGERNAUT B!TCH while running enemies off of cliffs with your shield charge will instantly kill them once they hit the ground. Of course, they die regardless, but yelling gives you +5 to the hidden stat of Barbarianosity)
