dragon armor is a disappointment. Overall Daedric has the best armor rating but dragon armor weighs slightly less, which makes dragon totally useless with the heavy armor perk that makes armor weigh zero

dragon also doesn't have a bow or sword or any weapon for that matter

daedric on the other hand is hella cool

I like Dragon better myself, though I wonder if theres an option to forgo those shoulder pads.

And no, Dragon isn't useless. Approaching the game with that line of thinking is just going to ruin it.

no its useless, by time you have 100 points in smithing your heavy armor should be 80 to get the zero weight capacity making daedric the better choice and no point in using dragon

Like I said, approaching the game with this mentality is going to ruin it for you. Dragon is not useless. Get over it.

you make no sense

what other mentality is there? waste a perk on armor that is inferior to one that is one tier below it on the perk tree?

get over it yourself, you're just being bullheaded

Smithing is the easiest skill in the game to level, so i don't know about that.


Iron Bar + 2 Leather Scraps = Iron Dagger

Hundreds of them.

Wow, that's an utter disappointment. Dragon actually has less AR than Daedric? Completely pointless then, especially because most people that are forging their own armor will also be picking up the weightless perk. I wonder if there's any difference on how high of an enchantment you can put on each piece though.

Seems faster to just make leather bracers since leather is a lot more plentiful than iron for a while. You get a little over a third (not quite half) of a smithing level per bracer. Never made a dagger though so I don't know how much they give.

Lets take a look at some simple truths, because you obviously don't get it:

*Dragon armor has the ability to be more aesthetically pleasing than Daedric.
* Dragon armor (I presume) doesn't have that big of a difference in the actual armor rating compared to daedric. Thus the difference will not be significant enough for Daedric to say its actually better. (and if Dragon armor is significantly weaker than Daedric, then I chalk that up to terrible balancing)
*Depending on difficulty, armor choice will either not matter at all, or will only matter slightly. (as in, it will only matter enough that you won't let yourself keep using Iron armor at level 50, for instance)

So, dragon armor is not useless, because it works just as well as Daedric, looks better, and if you want to be all anal about stats it can actually enable you to spend perk choices elsewhere.

This is a pretty illogical way of looking at it. No one levels up smithing because they don't care about stats. The game has not been that difficult at all so far, but maybe some people actually want to have the best "tankability" without a shield as possible. Picking an armor just because it looks better (if it's much weaker) isn't a good idea, although if the difference is minimal as you're suggesting it may be, then it's simply a preference; although I'd definitely say looks + perk is not better than function and one less perk spent.

Besides that, you can create and enchant some pretty nice Daedric weapons, and all Dragon has is armor. The only thing I'm curious about is enchantment capacity per piece or if it's all the same no matter what type of armor you're enchanting.

Aesthetically, the Dragon looks like ass compared to the Daedric too. Besides that, my goal was to create a "Warlock" type character and that actually fits the "evil guy in heavy armor" motif (even though I just said I'd use function over looks).
