While I craft my own armor, I like using unique weapons such as Chillrend, Dawnbreaker, Zephyr or Nightingale Blade instead of making my own.

I think the last weapon I actually made was the Enhanced Dwarven Crossbow.

unique. I never craft.

I like making my own weapons once enchanting is at 100. I have my fire and ice damage sword the antipode. My lightning damage and paralyze blades katana the thunderbrand. and my fire damage and health absorb axe that I never came up with a decent name for that is just the ebony fire axe.

Yeah 100 enchanting plus whatever smithing nonsense you prefer will outdo any unique weapon in the game. I do like to mix it up however so I give the uniques a quick run when I find them if they are cool

Crafting is a hassle and takes grinding that I don't have the patience for.

I almost always make my armor (I use hide and it's just easier to make it right away than try to find a set), but rarely my weapons. I end up using Bound Weapons fairly often, or unique 2-handed swords.

On my PC copy, though, I usually make my own armor and weapons.

I used to go crazy with crafting numbers when I first started. Now the gear is about style, what feels right for the personality of the character. I have a character that wears a dragon priest mask just because it matches his armor outfit, he doesn't even utilize the enchantments on it.

I prefer unique but I often can't resist the temptation and eventually craft my own stuff.

I always want to craft.

Next character though, everything is unique or loot. I swear it!
No matter what happens next, don't be to hard on yourself. Even now, after all you've can still go home. Lucky you.

The only crafting that I use is enchanting and that's only on my mages for cost reduction purposes. I never bother with making my own weapons and armors.
"Okay, look. We both said a lot of things your going to regret but I think we can put our differences behind use. For science. You monster.
