Are the bound weapons really worth using? I have a lot of deadric artifacts and some ebony weapons and I was wondering if the bound dagger, bound sword, and bound bow are worth getting. From what I read, they aren't very useful when sneaking because they make louder noises and take longer to cast.
I play mostly sneak/assasin style of play, and I really like the bound bow. It is easy to get to level 50 in Illusion (casting Courage on anyone repeatedly) and get Quiet Casting perk, then, even though YOU hear the bound weapon being cast, it is actually silent. I like the Soul Stealer (which means you already have Mystic Binding, rasing the damage level) perk to stock up on soul gems for Enchanting as well as being a pretty powerful bow at lower levels.
I personally think it's worth getting them. It's good for levelling up Conjuration when an enemy is nearby, and if you ever feel the need to conjure up a thrall or something, you won't need to worry about levelling your Conjuration, since you've already done it.
If you wanna use it as your main weapon and don't do much sneaking or magic, then no. Just use your Ebony weapons and Daedric stuff instead.
