I generally just have my one-handed enchanted sword to back-up whatever spells I'm using. What combinations of weapons do you always have on you?

On my best character I had, I had a bow, a dagger, and two one handed weapons. Bow was for sneak and long distance stuff (since I didn't mage at all), dagger was for sneak 30X damage kills, and I dual wielded.Right now I'm on a pure mage, so no weapons. D:

How often does Mehrune's dagger actually one hit KO? I've gotten it plenty of times, but when I did I had over powered weapons so I just stuck with those.

Not to often I just carry it cause sometimes for killing small animals or wolfs ect I don't like wasting the charge in my good weapons so I just carry mehrunes also it doesn't weigh a lot so why not

I'm experimenting with dual wield ATM so 2 one handed weaps and a trusty bow are about it. Fits my playstyle. I like to sneak attack with the bow if possible (cleared a bandit lair last night by picking 'em off one by one, very fun). Then if I'm discovered or ambushed I bust out the dual wield and go berserker style with shouts.

What are your thoughts on dual-wielding so far? Does it increase your damage amount enough to justify it? I was thinking about trying it on my next character, but it seems there are just as many detractors as supporters.

Disclaimer: 12 hours in, so I'm by no means an expert on Skyrim. Might be harder later on, for example. IDK.So far I like it. It definitely seems to be a trade off... you take more damage, but you do more damage too.My take, with what I know and have experienced so far:Taking more damage can be mitigated by the crafting professions easily, at least in vanilla Skyrim. Pretty self explanatory, just craft good armor, throw some nice enchantments on it, gulp some good potions even. More than makes up for the armor loss from no shield IMO.Dishing out more damage: here is where dual wield really shines, I'd say. Dual Flurry and Dual Savagery combined with Armsman makes for some really nice +dmg overall. And then you have the weapon specific perks, Hack and Slash for war axes, Bone Breaker for maces, and Bladesman for swords. My personal take on those 3 is that Bone Breaker is the best by a mile. 75% ignore armor is pretty insane combined with the above perks.EDIT: in terms of aesthetics and gameplay, I guess it is personal preference. I like to bash faces in with dual wield more than sword + shield gameplay, and I like the animation better.

Also stacking Elemental Fury and power attacks makes dual wielding pretty fun.

Uh, well my character is a DB/Thieves guild Stealth so..1 dagger for silent kills(Ebony)1 Bow(Nightingale)1 Daedric Sword+Nightingale blade for dual wielding1 Dragonscale shield...I used it to stunlock dragons back when they were harder, but now my dual wield power attacks hit pretty hard, I might just put it in the bank(read:small sack in breezehome with at least 900kg of stuff in it waiting to sell.)Hmm..I think I have a soultrap bow to get rabbit and chicken souls to powerlevel enchanting, just got enchanting to 100 today though so I'll dump that.That's it really, not sure if I need anything else. I suppose I'll replace Nightingale bow, Nightingale sword, and Ebony Dagger with Daedric weapons and custom enchant them.EDIT:

Nuff said. Yeah I had pretty much the same type of theif/assassin type Khajiit.Now I'm going with non stealthy approach, just shield and mace.

Just my draedric sword, a bow and maybe a few other weapons such as a dagger. Don't particularly bring many weapons with me because they weigh a lot.

First playthough: Mace in right hand, fire spell in left (ice for dragons)Second Playthough: Sword in right hand, fire spell in left (ice for dragons)I was so ticked off when I poured perks into maces, then found out swords were better. I know I don't use variety, but this method works.

Always have my Nightingale sword and bow, and my Deadric hammer, But sometimes I'll carry around the Wabbajack, or the Sanguine Rose, Sometimes both, but they weigh a ton so I cant do it very often

Well swords do less attack but are faster, that doesnt mean that they are better, dual wielding maces would be the same as dual weilding swords, just a little slower, dual weilding swords would be the same, just a little weaker, but the enemy woul die about the same time either wayLike I use the slowest weapon in the game, the warhammer, but that doesnt mean its any less deadlier than a greatsword
