wuuthrad or daedric battleaxe?

#1gaming_noob4000Posted 5/2/2012 6:41:24 PM
I just wanted your opinions on which is best (yes I have a mod that makes it possible to temper wuuthrad and yes you can enchant it). I ask because uesp says the base damage is the same for both, yet the wiki says wuuthrad has one more point.

http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Wuuthrad
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Daedric_Battleaxe#Daedric_Battleaxe
uesp: both 25 base

http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Daedric_Battleaxe
http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Wuuthrad
wiki: daedric=25 wuuthrad=26


Could somebody please check which is true? I'm a long way to get either one of them...

Uhhh well if the question is they're equal vs. Wuuthrad is better, then you might as well go with Wuuthrad to be safe. Plus wuuthrad has the extra damage to elves thing so it'd definitely be better if their damage is equal.

with high smithing enchant potions and gear I barely notice a difference between the various weapons

Iirc, yes you can enchant Wuuthrad… I don't live by the rule of cool, tho (maybe for armor late-game, but not weapons…)

Wuuthrad is better. It has an innate bonus damage to elves and you can enchant it.

You're about 5 hours too late, but thanks anyway :)

Wuuthrad can not be improved by smithing, though it can be enchanted. Despite this, the effect text doesn't change, which means you cannot see how much damage the enchantment does. You can still modify the amount.

Unless an update changed this or something. Some mods will probably allow you to improvise Wuuthrad otherwise, though.
