I'm planning on making a wizard, any advice for my first 20 or so levels of not being a hella sweet sorcerer?
Go Breton and give that blue bar some love every time you level up. Stamina is good too but focus on magica.
Allocate perks to destruction, restoration, and enchanting. I would devote to one spell type (fire or frost) rather than spending perks on all of them at first. Level up shock last because it has a higher magica cost, and you should only use it against other wizards due to the magica drain (until you get adept shock spells which are uber overpowered).
Restoration is only good for the healing spell and healing dual-cast. Only start giving level points to health when you dont feel like you can heal yourself quickly.
Disenchant items like rings/amulets that give magica regen and enchant the same thing onto your own clothing after your enchanting is higher.
I made an enchantress once devoted solely to enchanting and illusion so I have a ring that regenerates my magica and stamina almost instantly after use :) I'm basically a ghost.
