    • The Longhammer, hands down.  It swings as fast as a Greatsword, plus its effect isn't an enchantment and can stack with Elemental Fury.

    • The Steel Battleaxe of Blazing Souls ; It's dual enchantment can be learned and applied to other weapons for future enchanting. I buffed an Anchient Nord Greatsword to superior level  ( current character is only level 12 right now ) and used this enchantment, which burns the crap out of opponents and traps their souls, filling all those soul gems I've been accumulating for 12 levels. I'm playing a Nord Ranger type character and this weapon helps keep my inventory simple and light, while having a very useful and powerful weapon at relatively low level.

      Also, I like that choice because the Steel Battleaxe of blazing Souls is not a very unique appearing weapon which I would be loathe to disenchant due to its uniqueness in appearance as well as function.

    • Ebony Blade, by far.


      Once you fully charge it with dead friendlies (10 of them), it is MASSIVELY powerful.

    • Personally, I get a kick out of Champion's Cudgel for the Chaos Damage enchant. Put that on two blades, and you're set against agaisnt anyone because, as I find it, I always have a fifty percent chance for each element. Meaning there is a chance that all 3 elements kick in and do damage, and... damn.

      Woodsman's Friend is actually weaker than the Iron Battleaxe, cause it's so much slower.

    • I'm big on weapons for their aesthetic value, so I really love the Rueful Axe and Wuuthrad. Roleplaying with Wuuthrad enchanted with Fear is pretty awesome (the Thalmor run like bitches). In terms of gameplay, though, it's gotta be the Longhammer with Elemental Fury. This thing is powerful as all hell. If a dragon lands nearby while you have that thing out, the dragon will not be taking off again.

      I hate Volendrung, though. Sure, you can just keep powerattacking with it, since it's a giant stamina sponge, but it's ugly as shit.

    • I am with you on this, IncinerateChicken. That's why I was willing to disenchant the Steel Battleaxe of Blazing Souls and the Champions Cudgel; generic, boring and/or ugly appearance. I tend to favor the sweeping beauty of the Ebony blades or the good old-fashioned lines of the Ancient Nord Greatswords. Have you looked at the etchings and detail up close on these ? For similar resons, I wouldn't want to disenchant Auriel's Bow or the Dwarven Black Bow of Fate: they are too cool looking, and I enjoy their unique enchantments. Btw: I feel like the Daedric weapons ( except for the bow ) look like they were designed by some limp-wiener 13 year old nerd who is overcompensating by trying to make them look gigantic, spikey and complicated; like a gamer-nerd monster truck or something.

      And I also like that the Rueful Axe weighs only 10 ! Super light for a very effective weapon !

      I just went up against Miraak armed with my Legendary Ancient Nord Greatsword with the Chaos enchantment I took off the Champions Cudgel, and it was quite effective. After completing the Companion's quest line, I should be able to make an Ancient Nord Hero blade which should be even better, and I'll use that to go up against Alduin, along with my Dwarven Black Bow of Fate.

        Loading editor
    • I really like the Nord Hero weapons, especially with this mod. And Chaos Damage on any weapon of your choosing is WAY better than what you get off the cudgel.

      That's a good point about the weight on the Rueful Axe: it's half the weight of any other high-tier weapon in its class.

      The BBoF and Auriel's Bow look really nice. I especially like Auriel's Bow with a mod that allows you to keep its matching shield on your back while you use it.

      And I friggin' HATE the way Daedric stuff looks too. It's hideous, and unrealistic to the point of completely breaking my immersion when a dremora shows up. Seriously, all those spikes and shit just make me think, "This graphic designer has a really small penis." I'm none too fond of Dwarven Armor, either-- I think it looks like someone was really bad at making a person-shaped steampunk robot.

      My favorite armors are the much more realistic, much sexier Wolf Armor and Steel Plate Armor. Both look realistic, and with aMidianBorn's texture mods (which are not only highly recommended, but I would argue critical for any game) look absolutely awesome.

      I had originally though Chitin Armor was really ugly, but I brought Teldryn on as a follower, and I'm at the point where I think it looks kinda good on some characters. It works for him, and I've never really wanted to replace it.

    • I'd say Bloodskal Blade, not only the red colour scheme looks good, it can also shoot wave beam to solve both puzzles and enemies, I can also stack the blade swing and energy blast to outdamage Daedric Greatsword. And above all, for people familiar with Dark Souls, this will bring back the flashback of Moonlight Greatsword, From Software's trademark sword.

      Are you asking if the enchant runs out? No, it doesn't.

    • No, I'm asking if it counts as an enchantment (like Volendrung or the Rueful Axe), rather than an innate effect (like the Longhammer or Wuuthrad).

      The difference is that enchantments cause a weapon to be treated as "magical", and therefore unaffected by Elemental Fury.

      Actually, y'know what, I'll just check myself. I'll be back in a sec.

    • I think on any subject like this, there are always going to be two camps: the practicality camp and the aesthetics camp. I lean about 80% aesthetic/ 20% practical, and I look for interesting details. Like, did anyone notice the pulsing runes/symbols on the Dwarven Black Bow of Fate ? I would never want to lose such a beautiful, interesting thing, and couldn't care less if it doesn't do 1000+ points of damage with all the min-maxing and number-crunching I could wreak from its shattered husk.

      I do love the Daedric gauntlets and boots, and even to some extent the helmet, and the Dragon Scale armor as opposed to the Dragon Bone armor. I like the appearance ( and lethality ) of the Dragon Bone weapons as well. I think for me, when things get too huge, bulky or unwieldly-looking, it does that wrecking of my Suspension -of -Disbelief thing. I have also noticed in the game that certain armor or weapons tend to go/function/look better with certain individuals ( player character or non-player character ) more than others. Mjoll, for instance, looks magnificent to me wearing ebony armor and wielding an ebony greatsword, whereas others, not so much. Lydia looked like a size 9 squeezed into a size 4 while in the Wolf Armor, but looks really sleek and lethal in full Steel Plate ( minus the helmet - I like to see their faces ).

      Bloodskal Blade: not such a huge fan of its appearance, but I find its enchantment interesting.

      Favorite two-handed weapon so far : Ancient Nord Hero Greatsword with Chaos enchantment. Wielded by my  Female Nord Ranger character. ;-D

      The Ebony Blade has the speed of a One-Handed sword an benefits from One-Handed perks, but levels up Two-Handed prior to patch 1.9 (I think it's patch 1.9).

      I'm with you. I don't use ugly weapons or armor, and neither do my companions.

    • There are some ugly things that look good because of HOW said ugliness is portrayed. An excellent example, orc armor and weapons, orcs in general, Falmer armor and weapons (Seriously, I enjoy the looks of them because I can see what part of the chaurus/chaurus hunter they used to make it, whereas forsworn gear to me just makes no sense). Seriously, I would have gotten a kick running around in Falmer armor if I could JUST FIND A COMPLETE SET but I digress. some stuff is so ugly it's actually quite beautiful.


      Then you have Elven armor that makes your character look like a golden cuucoo from Zelda, and I'm not even sure what Glass armor makes my character look like, but every time I think "Transformer" which makes no sense to me.

      And anything the Forsworn make is retarded. Why, then, does it have better ratings than iron kit?

      Personally, I like the aesthetics of Orcish equipment because, for the most part, they look surprisingly practical (in stark contrast to, for example, Daedric equipment). The best part is that all the little details on the Orcish weapons seem to have some level of functionality to them - like the shaping of the pommel on the war axe, or the ridge-shape on the orcish shield for power bashing. The Mongol/Hunnic styling for the Orcish helmet is also a big plus.



      Centring back on the OP - For raw aesthetics in two-handed weapons, I really like the Elven two-handed weapons, especially the bird motif on the Elven Warhammer - I know it goes against what I just said about functionality, but I like how it balances a certain level of aesthetic appeal without appearing completely unwieldly or logically impossible. It's not completely one-of-a-kind, but it's almost never used by enemies in the game.

      Depending on how you define 'Best', I've been getting a lot of fun out of the Bound Battleaxe - it's unrivalled in terms of weight (go figure,) works reasonably well with the appropriate perks, and you don't have to stress out over getting disarmed. I don't know why, but for some reason the bound weapons feel a bit more wieldly than physical weapons - like they move faster or initiate finishing moves more consistently.

        Loading editor
    • Right enough. The Orcish gear looks crude, but that crudeness belies its sheer functionality, as one of the better Heavy sets. And since the Orcs as a whole are kinda like the Mongol Hordes if they got destroyed, the styling works in the lore, too.

      The persistent motif throughout Elvish stuff is kinda cool, but it looks a bit silly on a few things. The warhammer looks quite nice. And despite what I've said, the Glass axes (big and little) are nice-looking. Impractical, but nice.

      What I've really been disappointed with are shields and maces. The shields in Skyrim are either retardedly impractical-looking (the Dwarven one must weigh 50 kilos or so), stupidly ornate (Elven), or both (Ebony). Maces just look silly for the most part. See, IRL, a mace is gonna act like basically a sharp hammer. So it needs to be sharp, and have a heavy head. Iron is crappy because it's iron, which is ass-tacular against anything harder (which is everything). Steel is probably the most attractive out of all of them, but it wouldn't weigh anything, and therefore be pointless against a guy in armor. Elvish and Glass are just ridiculous. The spikes would snap right off. Orcish just looks dumb, in this case. Dwarven, Nordic, and Stahlrim maces are just dull clubs. And Dragonbone wouldn't weigh very much, probably. The Ebony one's probably the most reasonable-looking, out of all of them, but I think Ebony stuff looks dumb in general.

      Maces are disappointing, and nobody uses them, in other words.

      Bound weapons are kinda cool, though it's a shame they don't have a better appearance. I would have liked something a bit different than a purple Ancient Nord battleaxe. They absolutely are one of the more practical weapons in the game, though, especially for battlemages.

      Of course, if you're on PC, remeshing and retexturing isn't too hard for a single weapon variety, so there's always that.

    • indeed. You'd be smashing in the face of malog bal more effectively than your enemies face. And Elven Gear feels, to me, like it's just too resource heavy forging something that is just that terrible defensively speaking. Then you have the bird motif, and  I just don't feel intimidating running around as a shining gold chicken. I want my enemies to fear my arrival, to see me as a symbolf of their impending doom. Not make crude jokes about how Thanksgiving's coming early this year.

      Ebony takes the same number of strikes with a pickaxe to mine as anything else. Why should we assume it's stronger? Because it's harder to make than Dwarven stuff? And I don't care how strong your magical ebony ingots are, those spikes are eventually going to break off, simply because of the force you're putting into the strike.

    • For me, Ebony's fine and well with the singular exception of the helmet.

      Nothing wrong with its specific design per-se, but the way its depicted when being worn... ugh. It looks like it gives you an extra 10cm to your neck, which makes anyone look like a mutant. Its like someone on the modelling team couldn't be bothered to compare it to where the actual head is on player-controlled species, so they just eyeballed where it should sit and called it a day. I'm pretty impressed with the rest of the ebony set' aesthetic (excepting the giant, ridiculously-sized battleaxe).

      When it all boils down, I think in terms of aesthetics & useability the only things people wil agree on are gonna be the Headsman's Axe and the Skyforge steel greatsword / standard steel warhammer. One thing is that there aren't nearly as many unique, good-looking two-handed weapons throughout Skyrim to match the number of, for instance, unique 1-handed weapons. Just grab what you like the look of, improve the hell out of it and then give it a ridiculously powerful chaos/paralyze/flaming souls/absorb enchantment.

    • Ebony is oftenn referred to as "glass-like volcanic substance" and is considered the Elder Scrolls equivalent of obsidian. Steel is much stronger than obsidian. Also even if the Mace of Molag Bal was made of diamond the spikes would still eventually snap off because of the force being exerted on them.

    • So far, all I've read here is complaining and total misunderstanding of how designs and weapon creation works. The Elven Warhammer would not only work, but be light enough to actually swing practially. And would kill. The Orcish gear? Based on real world weapons and armor.

      Any, if not all, weapon and armor in Skyrim will and can work in the real world. We actually HAVE most of those weapons from our own history. The only difference? Slight changes to fit the feel of Elder Scrolls, that's it. Otherwise everything is based off of real world armor and weapons, and WILL work. :/

      Not only that, it's a fantasy world. Are you really complaining that the ORC'S have kinda crude and ugly gear? Daedric is MEANT be be like that, and perfectly fits the desgin of the Daedra, you know? Demons?

    • My favourite 2 handed weapon is the ebony Blade, Simple to get and when fully charged you're really powerful

      There are some ugly things that look good because of HOW said ugliness is portrayed. An excellent example, orc armor and weapons, orcs in general, Falmer armor and weapons (Seriously, I enjoy the looks of them because I can see what part of the chaurus/chaurus hunter they used to make it, whereas forsworn gear to me just makes no sense). Seriously, I would have gotten a kick running around in Falmer armor if I could JUST FIND A COMPLETE SET but I digress. some stuff is so ugly it's actually quite beautiful.

      I don't even know if you will see this but there is a full set of falmer armor in Mzinchaleft. It's also the place where you get Grimsever so you can kill two birds with one stone. I will warn you though, for some reason the falmor chest piece doesn't cover your stomach. The only reason I know this is because I gave it to Mjoll and she equipped it.

    • Stalhrim Greatsword/ Battleaxe/ Warhammer w/ Chaos Damage & Absorb Health enchantment. Combined with all Augmented Elemental perks, it can be a powerful weapon.

    • Champion's Cudgel from the Dragonborn DLC (do the ashspawn quest thing for the commander)

      But.. You should disenchant it if you want to put it on The Long Hammer.

    • Any Stalhrim weapon enchanted with both Frost and Chaos damage. These two enchantments are 25% stronger if put on a Stalhrim weapon, and these buffs stack with the Destruction perks Augmented Fire, Frost & Shock. You can, of course, temper it to increase its physical damage as well. Imagine the damage of this weapon when all three Chaos damage types proc at once plus the additional Frost enchantment. This unique perk alone makes Stalhrim viable for destroying any enemy, in a very short amount of time, on Legendary difficulty without exploits.

      Newbies normally think that Dragonbone, Daedric, or unique weapons are the strongest. They couldn't be more wrong.

    • I read all of this. But still don't understand why people unenchant the Champion's Cudgel. It is a unique weapon with an enchantment which isn't unique. Normal weapons drop the chaos enchantment too. Also, I love the look of the Champion's Cudgel. But would prefer the Longhammer's enchantment along with it. Would be awesome as hell to swing that beast around.

      But got a new question; who was the coolest looking boss in Skyrim and who was the weakest boss (your opinion ofc).

    • Ebony Blade is the best because is has an absorb health effect that absorbs 30 health (depends on level) which ignores armour. And because it absorbs health it gives the health to you which means every hit gives health to you and takes away almost double from the enemy

    • ANY STALHRIM WEAPON WITH ULTIMATE CHAOS ENCHANTMENT HANDS DOWN, HERES WHY: - Damage of fire, shock and frost damage all at once in 50% chance of normal attacks. - Stalhrim Effect 25% bonus frost damage. THINGS NEEDED: Augmented Perks, Enchanter Perks, Elemental Dragon Mask, Enchanter's Elixir, Enchanting Gear, Black Book Sallow Ragent - Seeker of Sorcery,  = 400 DAMAGE

      COMBINE IT WITH PARALYZE ENCHANTMENT WITH DUAL ENCHANTMENT PERK DO THIS WITH STALHRIM DAGGER FOR HIGHEST ATTACK SPEED

      Result = Godly Melee Tranquilizer

      no cheat, no glitches, just try it

    • for estethics, I don't know really what to go with, but I do find the Bloodskal Blade neat in gameplay. rn I have a 48 TH with an extra 64% damage (the first 2H perk and two enchantments of 32% extra 2H damage each) and it deals 53, combined with the 30 from the power attack I can do roughly 80 points, an extra 25% from standing attacks I can pop almost 100 with one power attack, and that isn't upgraded at all nor maxed out skill. I like the thinking part of having to line up where the blast goes and try to hit multible targets. Also, having the option of some medium range attacks that are decent and quick (without having to change weapons). It's just overall neat.

    • The spikes on a mace made by a man may fall off

      Not those fashioned by the deadric Prince of domination.

      I really like wuuthrad, ancient Nordic equipment and wolf armour. I think two handed is the most effective Skyrim build. Perhaps throw in a bit of conjuration hospice it up but the high damage and ability to block is very useful. Not to mention all the ace unique two handed weapons. I thought there were more cool unique two handed weapons than one handed in skyrim.
