    This is just a general discussion about your favorite weapon. It can be a Deadric artifact, or any type of weapon, including staffs and bows/crossbows. No modded weapons allowed. I'm new to the forum, so this is just a quick discussion.

    My favorite weapon is Chillrend, mostly because I love all of the glass weapons and armor!

    Generic weapons or custom crafted weapons?

    Glass Bow of the Stag Prince.

    Auriel's Bow.

    Because Bloodcursed Arrows. Nothing says "armageddon" like a blotted out sky.

    Ghost Blade!!! Because it's so pretty and shiny!!! And it weights 1.0.  Plus when you go invisible the sword looks like it's floating in midair!!! AHHH I NEED IT! I wanna make it IRL.

    Just generic weapons- though if you have custom crafted weapons, that's pretty cool if you made them yourself

    Dwarven Sword. It's so simple and yet awesome looking, and fits a tonne of characters.

    Magic and Greatswords.  I've been enjoying the Ebony Blade recently.

    The Dwarven Greatsword looks awesome strapped to the back of a mage in adept robes.  Been using a fire enchanted one with my current pyro build.  Nothing says badass quite like a six foot golden sword.

    Really liking The Staff of Jyrik Gaulderson. Destruction staff with a restoration body, double magicka damage and, with the USP or other mods, it gives a boost to magicka and magicka regeneration.

    My "favorite weapon" really depends on what sort of character I am playing.

    If I am playing as a straight fighter type (Nord, Orc, or Redguard usually), then my favorite weapon is usually Wuuthrad (the two-handed axe you can get after becoming Harbinger of the Companions.)

    If I am playing as a mage type (Altmer or Breton usually), then my favorite weapon becomes mid-range Destruction spells (Firebolt, Iceball, Lighting Bolt.)

    However, if I am playing as a thief or assassin (Bosmer, Khajiit, or Argonian usually), then my favorite weapon becomes the Nightingale Bow, interspersed with Nightingale Subterfuge (a power that equals Rage spell that tends to work regardless of the target's level.)

    BTW, my current character is an Argonian "efficiency expert" who uses the Nightingale Bow (IMO, an "efficiency expert" is one who tries to finish encounters in as few attacks as possible, saving his or her arrows.  He or she relies on stealth and Nightingale Subterfuge to even the playing field before making his or her presence even known.)

    It's so hard to narrow down. I have an affinity for daggers, so Blade of Woe has a special spot in my heart. Overall though... it's gotta be Dawnbreaker for me. The effect when you use it is just awesome.

    The dragon bone hammer because it looks so barbaric.
