Too bad magic is still so poorly done. Destruction is weak and everything else is pointless and boring. Playing a mage I couldn't kill a fucking thing until I got the archmage equipment, and even now the only reason I kill anything is because of broken-ass perk that hitstuns every enemy in the game.
Actually, I think magic is a bit overpowered. Destruction magic is incredibly effective with just some of the basic spells, though I suggest using alchemy to make potions - either to use or to sell to buy better ones. Long before the archmage equipment I had decent necromancer robes and could take down dragons in less than 10 seconds (easier in open areas). If you're having trouble I'd higher recommend grabbing a side-kick; a mage is quite effective.

I dunno what it is but I find conjuration a lot less effective than in Oblivion, where most of the time I would use summons to distract most enemies. Now it's just not worth the time, even with dual-wielding effectively making it free to have equipped. I think the problem is that by making spells more powerful when combined it reduces your desire to try different combinations, like fire + summon. I tend to stick to firebolt / incineration dual-wielding, varying things up with shouts.

And yeah, dragons definitely occur far too frequently. They were incredibly impressive at first but they've definitely lost their appeal. I came across a named dragon pretty early on - less than level 25 - and didn't find it any more challenging. The biggest problem is that they all use pretty much the same tactics and so can be taken down in the same way.
