Lazy with the designs or perfect as is?

Lazy with the designs or perfect as is?

  • I was dissapointed that most of the weapons had almost the same design. Two pairs of weapons which look exactly the same, save for a a small change. The Stalhrim sword looks just like the stahlrim dagger, and the war hammer is just a mace with an additional grip for two hand use.

    I was annoyed, but I still like the weapons, I just wish there was som bigger difference other than just having another grip. I had expected something more afterall the trouble I went trough just to learn how to craft that stuff. 

    What I also noticed is that the light and the heavy armor had no real distinguishable' features./Unless you count the horned helmet.) They look almost the same, which is quite a shame considering the fact that the armor looks kinda nice in it's basic, but the two versions should have atleast had a different look to them.

    • They tried to make it realistic as stalhrim can't me melted so they can only be fashioned into crude forms, i think that's why the weopons look the same.

    • Yah man, its basically the diamond of skyrim. Only ancient nordic pickaxes can do anything to it so its sorta hard tk form.

    • I understand the relation between the diamond and stalhrim materials, the only problem is that both materials already exclusively exist in Tamriel. If they wanted a diamond concept armor, since diamonds can be found in the game why not allow "diamond armor" to be craftable? Asthetically yes, both of these materials do looks similar but enchanted ice is as it is, and should be individualized as it's own special entity. But overall I do agree, I think the weapons and armors should have been given more variety and not just appear to be different only according to size and title. It serves it's purpose, and honestly I still fill like it looks better than any of the weapons in ESO since all the concepts in that game look weak and plain uninteresting to me. But I guess thats what you get in a MMO.

    • Remember the game is last gen. And with a game the magnitude of Skyrim, these sorts of things are inevitable. There are also mods to remedy these sorts of issues.

      But I'll be surprised if this still happens in the next ES game.

    • The only stalhrim item that looks good to me are the swords and the dagger. The mace is so weird, its like an iceball.

    • I think the crude look of the weapons is the point. Stalhrim is enchanted ICE, meaning you arent really forging it, you are CHISELING it into form. This is also what I think happens with the Dragonbone weapons, chiseling peices of bone to give them shape.

      The dragonbone weapons are obviously mostly formed out of ebony, and in the case of the mace, teeth being used to form the head, and in the case of the sword and dagger, bones are cut to shape. This being said, the only good looking dragonbone gear isn't found in Vanilla Skyrim, but comes from mods...
