Ebony Smithing dependance[edit source]

Seems like its improvement does depent on Ebony Smithing perk after all. I have only light smithing perks, and I could improve both this bow and my glass bow to Legendary, but the Glass bow has much greater damage. Considering it has lower base damage, I can only assume that it's because I don't have Ebony Smithing perk.

^ I wouldn't be surprised to find that Bethesda corrected that in one of the patches to be honest. All they'd have had to do is add it to the list of items affected by the Ebony Smithing perk. It's not like it was really a bug or anything, someone just forgot to code it in lol. 18:27, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

Base Damage on Nightingale Bow[edit source]

OK, well I was playing Skyrim on my PS3 (please no haters I have it on PC aswell) but I decided to start a new game which I am currently on level 51 coming onto 52, and I just finished the quest Blindsighted where Karliah gives me the bow and upon looking at its damage it says 114!!!??? Thats without any arrows selected and no perks on the archery tree.

Now looking on here it say that it only goes up to 18/19 at levels 46+. So either something random has happened to my game or this page needs to be edited on the damage

At level 42 with an archery level of 86, my nightingale bow's damage was only 53. I don't know if you're game is glitched, or what. I don't know the base value or how to find it. But I hope this helps. If only it was 114. . . 18:55, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

Nightingale Bow vs Karliah's Bow[edit source]

Both this article and the Karliah's Bow article claim that they are the bow that Karliah gives at the end of Blindsighted. Which is the bow that Karliah gives? We should merge the articles such that we're not repeating and/or falsifying info.
