good question, a dagger can reach the 110 dmg give or take, a sword around 450 more or less , both probably can do more dmg, but the difference stay in that pattern

sword sneak attack 2,700
dagger sneak attack 3,300

i did the math without potions


I just tested it myself with my level 81 character.

A stalhrim dagger, with the aid of fortify marksman potion, will do 493 base damage. Multiply that by 30 and you get 14,790 damage.

A stahlrim sword, with the aid of enchantments and fortify one-handed + marksman potions, will do 3,419. Multiply that by six and you get a whopping 20,514 damage!

since fortify marksman increases the damage of most things, has anyone tested to see if it works with unarmed?

that fortify marksman + fortify 1h is a deadly combo , without it i think the dagger do a little more

seriously 1h is ridiculous best DPS thanks to dual flurry and elemental fury, best raw dmg -dual wield power attack + combo/enchantment, best sneak attack thanks to the potions, versatile can switch fast

I forgot to add ahzidal genius I used that as well in creating this gear.

As far as My +42 vs. your +35 I was a vampire with the necromage perk, that may account for the difference.

Dagger Vs. sword is interesting. The Sword I made boosts up to 2000 damage when equipped with 4 pieces of 70+ fortify one-handed which is the best possible. With the 6x sneak that is 12000 for a dagger to do that much damage (fortify does not work on daggers) It would need to be 400 base damage. I estimate that it would actually be about 430 damage based on the gear I have made meaning it would do an additional 900 damage as compared to the sword but only on a sneak attack. So if about 65% of your attacks are sneak attacks and you have the shrouded gloves then the dagger is the better choice, otherwise the sword is the best choice.

Why I would want that much damage? curiosity, finding how high the ceiling is.
