Power bash... Worth it?

#1KC_CheeseKingPosted 1/28/2013 10:03:22 PM
I honestly don't notice any difference between bashing and power bashing, and I've played 2 characters that specialize in blocking, one of them up to level 60. Is there something I'm missing?

Power bashing gives the most significant advantages when using 2H weapons. Because of the way their are calculated, the weapons have a higher base bashing damage. Dragonbone Warhammers bash for over 100 while shields will always be lackluster by comparison.

Yeah, but you might as well just do a power attack if damage is the only factor. It'd do more damage and break through a block.

Disarm.

I need a woman like Jenassa. Spend a month away from home with a strange woman, come home to food, $2000 and sex, then leave.

And there's another perk point right there. Still wondering if it'd be worth it just for that. I guess I could give it a shot.

It's fun, and useful depending how op you plan to make yourself.

Alright, you've convinced me to try it. And what of the "Quick Reflexes" perk? I'd thought about getting it, but I had wondered it it would be overkill at best, or a distracting experience at worst.

If you have Dragonborn go for it, see what you think. Can always respec later.

True. Dragon souls aren't exactly rare.

Aye, you can always do what I did as well: train a character to 15 spending no perks, then do Oghma and have a save moments away from 81 for all of your testing wants.
