Are human souls better than creature souls?

  1. What's the benefit from using human souls with black soul gems over creature souls? Or are they the same? I want to know which soul gem I should get from Azura's quest.

  1. Human souls and creature souls are technically the same. The only difference is that human souls are always grand and cannot be trapped without a black soul gem. Black Soul Gem (Grand) and Grand Soul Gem (Grand) are exactly the same for all purposes.

  1. The black soul gems (filled) are the best for making enchants on your items. If filled with humanoid souls, the enchant is much more powerful. I'd say to go for the black soul gem from the quest if you want really good enchants. Not like you need to kill any townsfolk, just hit a ruin and kill and bandit.

  2. The Black star is better. Human souls are considered to be bigger on average.

  3. If u get the black star and bring it to the mage in frozen hearth and finish the azura's quest than u can use human souls for enchanting perposes and what not . which will be better for ur enchanted weapons and using the enchanter since the black star is a reusable black soul gem

  4. human souls always equal a grand soul, no matter the level. Capture a lowly bandit's soul and you get a grand soul to play with. Awesome. Stupid me roleplaying as a nice guy, now i have to suffer a normal azura star instead of the badass black star.
