What class skills would you suggest then to keep the levelling more controlled?

I'm shooting for a Mage type so I will be using whatever spells I have, I also want to be able to use a blade and bow.

As I am running and jumping everywhere (No horse) and my Athletics and Acrobatics skills are going up quite fast, I should likely drop those to non-class skills.

I'm using one I'm making myself tweaked to my liking, but this one is pretty decent as well, I used it earlier.)

It may be a matter of taste, but I found the game more fun when not rushing past the lower levels too quickly.
I downloaded a mod to fix that item issue, but the one you linked to looks more in-depth.

But if you don't feel like braving the depths of Vilverin, and you have the house mod I made installed, I believe the majordomo (Miranda) will sell a pair of those pants as well, if I remember correctly.
Good to know.
