I prefer the Aetherial Crown over the staff and shield, as the crown allows you to be able to equip another standing stone bonus at will. This is especially good for the standing stone bonuses that have drawbacks, just unequip the crown and the drawback (but also the bonus) is gone. I currently have the Mage bonus permanently and the Atronach on the crown for when I need a Magicka boost.
I got really p***ed off with collecting the pages for Jiub, because the map for the Soul Cairn area is completely indecipherable. It took me over an hour to find the guy to give the Soul Husks to.
Deck the halls with bows and troll fat, fa la la la la la FUS RO DAH!
