Skyrim: Best weapon – sword, bow and more?
When you start Skyrim you’ll have limited armor and weapons, although once free from your binds it’s easy to start picking up weapons, which includes daggers, maces and swords.
You can get some decent swords and shields very quickly in Skyrim, especially if you defeat certain soldiers and search them, which is how we worked our way up to some nice steel armor, shield and sword.
Some really special weapons can be found in Skyrim but these are a lot harder to find. One article, found here, gives you some nice insight into the locations of unique weapons, and the guide explains what quests you must do to find these axes, swords, bows, and other unique weapons. Sometimes you’ll come across these special weapons when fighting others in the world of Skyrim, although the guide makes it easy to find most of them.
Over the last week we’ve reported the latest news on the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, although the idea of this short article is to help you find the best weapons, and also let us know what your best weapon in Skyrim is?
We’ve heard from a few of our readers already, and the Imperial Bow of Ice has been mentioned a few times as the best weapon in Skyrim. Let us know what weapons you’ve found so far, and your best weapon?

My Daedric Bow (Legendary) does 327 damage as well as 52 fire damage and 52 shock damage. If you get your smithing and enchanting up high enough you can make crazy weapons.
Daedric Mace (legendary) with Fire and Frost damage enchantments added to it. 194 damage points! Pretty much an instant kill with the right enchanted armor!
Scimitar, as with a little bit of work into smithing and enchanting, the swords power can be extreme. Mines just as strong as a daedric battleaxe.
My best sword is Dragon Bane (flawless) it is a one handed sword that when upgraded at a grindstone, does 41 damage. When you get it the sword already has an enchantment of +30 damage to dragons and +10 shock damage. This sword is found in the Blades new hideout Sky Haven Temple on one of the tables in the side rooms to the main room.
assassations with bein a werewolf is beast how you get it is with the campions you get it firther in with them and then the leader dies and you take over.... if you want to know more about becomeing a werewolf message me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Strange. My Daedric sword is 160. ;P Try increasing your enchanting. It's worth the time and perks. (:
blade of woe (upgrade to epic, but only shows legendary) and sneak attack with 30x damage, my one handed isn't even 100 yet but my blade does 70 damage times that by 30 thats 2100 damage right there...
The game is no fun with sneak dmg bonuses. One hit kills remove the entire battle aspect of the game. Leaving running around like everyone's little errand boy. Why play the game? lol
Volendrug is amazing for a 2 handed character. The drain 50 stamina on hit enables you to do some amazing damage output. Plop that on a Orc with Berserk or a Redguard with Adrenaline rush and it destroys.
I got a legendary dragon slaying sword that does +419880 fire damage I don't know what happened but when I was enchanting it my Xbox must have glitches or something but it's easily the best weapon in the game:)
daedic armor all double enchanted with 120% bow damage +120% sneak, muffle, and other various enchantments.. makes my legendary daedric bow have 350 damage and th bow itself has both +28 fire and ice damage, i can 2-3 hit kill any dragon except ancient
I personally dual wield the Mace of Molag Bol and Dawnbreaker. Both have attacks of over 110+ Add that with my dual enchanted dragon gloves/boots with one handed + 37% x2 on each, you get an incredibly high damage output.
Increase Smithing, to improve weapons higher. Increasing their dmg. Increase One-Handed to increase weapon dmg. And obv. use perks on it helps increase the weapon a lot as well. And increase Enchanting to have the enchantments he's got. Using an Enchanter's Philpher (however it's spelled) helps you get the max enchantment, and One-Handed bonus. Which is actually nothing! No damage cap. So you can enchant all armor with "fort one handed" and make any weapon destroy. Of course, you'd want other enchantments.
also daedric armor beats dragon armor easy. dragon has like 50 total points less on defense than daedric
legendary dual daedric blades enchanted with ice maximum with grand soul gem. hold both trigers and its pretty much 1 hit on anything
you cant make dragon weapons, the guy that said that is stupid. you can make dragon shields however. my character is dual wielding legendary daedric swords at 50 damage a piece, not counting the high crit chance.. also legendary light dragon armor as well as a legendary daedric bow. i love skyrim :)
The best bow you can get early on is the suptle ancient nordic bow with 40 damage which is only beaten by the glass bow at 43 damage but which can also be improved up to twice as much with a high smithing turning it into a legendary glass bow and improved furthur still with a passive damaging effect from an enchantment like ice or lightning.
My smithing is at 100, Dragon Bow does about 90 damage + you can upgrade it with more dragon bones to make it legendary dragon bow, and that's before even enchanting it... you get the idea :P
You can't make a dragon bow, or any weapons for that matter...I don't know wtf he's talking about...maybe he meant Daedric?
Most weapons I've come across are leveled. So you need to wait until your character is a higher level to pick up unique enchanted weapons and get the most out of them.
