Best Bow in Skyrim gives over 1000 damage
After 150 hours playing Skyrim and focusing on Archery you’d think most bows are either found, or you know about them. Today has been a reality check for us, which was met with both drooling and a sense of excitement to boot up Skyrim and find/create a bow that does well over 1000 damage.
We’ve seen many mods and this is certainly not one of them, you can create a Legendary Daedric Bow on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC that does over 1300 damage. How do you do that without cheating? Read on to find out.
After seeing an image that showed a Daedric Bow with 917 damage, we decided to investigate if this were true and if so, how do you go about finding or creating such a powerful weapon, which leads us to finding out what the best bow in Skyrim is?
We first found a few forum posts talking about Daedric bows with 415 base damage and fire/lighting at 62, although this is a crazy amount of damage compared to our 60 damage bow right now, which impressed us at first, we’d heard there is a lot more possible when hunting for the best bow.
Then we nailed it and found out a few simple tricks to achieve some crazy damage with bows, although you will want to max out your ranks in Smithing, Archery etc. You can see how to do this in the video below, which gives you a God-like bow with 652 damage, and over 1300 if you drink a Smithing potion before enhancing the bow.
Values are based on 100 skills in certain perk trees, which anything less will affect how good the weapons are. The video creator states that you need to be at the 100 skill level for Enchanting and Alchemy. You will also need to drink some potions before and during crafting a new Daedric bow.
One thing you got to remember if before trying this is that the game will become stupidly easy with the best bow in Skyrim, imagine what a 1300+ damage bow can do? Although it’s fair to point out this is part of the game and not a mod. Watch the video below and let us know what you think.
