Weapons have same damage as Daedric weapons? Edit
So far, on the same character, I noticed that the Ebony War Axe (Legendary) and Daedric War Axe (Legendary) that I crafted do the exact same amount of damage (Both sitting at 60 without any One-Handed fortify enchants, IIRC). Wouldn't that mean they have the same base damage? Justin Kriegel (talk) 19:27, November 21, 2011 (UTC)
No, not all smithing buffs are equal just because they have the same title, particularly 'Legendary' which is first applied in the vicinity of +60-70% effectiveness and goes all the way to whatever the cap is. 184.108.40.206 20:08, November 21, 2011 (UTC)
Daedric weapons have higher base damage but tend to be heavier than other materials if it is easier to improve the ebony, then stick with it and enchant the daedric with a good enchantment like Fiery Soul Trap.
