I got attacked by not one but two dragons outside Whiterun yesterday. Luckily they were only frost/regular dragons.

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.

Bullshit. I'm level 32 now on the mage, which is the point where my melee character became absolutely godlike. I've been using the 20% mage stone the entire game and my destruction is only 60. And I can't level alchemy because it's fucking impossible to level by making potions. I can pick up every ingredient I see for a god damn hour and making potions out of them will get me MAYBE TWO levels. My enchant skill, on the other hand, is already level 90... but it doesn't fucking do anything to increase my damage because mage equipment fucking sucks.

And you missed the point where I said spells were boring. Seriously? Firebolt? What is this, 1985? Use your fucking imagination, Bethesda.
