post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have light armor skill and blade skills and was wonder what the best armor is and the best weapon (long or short blade) is. Is it like Morrowind and glass is the best (for how light it is)? Any thoughts? I havn't come across ANY decent armor except the Kavatch curiass

here is the list at of the armor and weapon level availibility, magic armor and weapon are available only two leveles higher then their non-magical equivalents.
[edit] I added the weight of the main cuirass so you know how much weight to expect for each of 'em (in light/heavy)

(light/heavy)
Fur/Iron : level 1 ---- 5/30
Leather/Steel : level 3 ---- 7.5/35
Chain/Dwarven : level 6 ---- 9/40
Mithril/Orcish : level 10 ---- 11/45
Elven/Ebony : level 15 ---- 13/52.5
Glass/Daedric : level 20 ---- 15/60

Weapons (all type including arrows, does not count the "specials" such as "fine" weapon or the katana)
Iron : level 1
Steel : level 2
Silver : level 4
Dwarven : level 6
Elven : level 9
Glass: level 12
Ebony : level 16
Daedric : level 20

Shortsword do less damage and have a lower reach but are lighter and faster then Longsword. Here an example or 3 short/Long type so you can get an idea.
(weight/health/speed/reach/base damage)
Steel shortsword : 10/144/1.2/0.8/9
Steel longsword: 24/192/1/1/12

Elven shortsword : 16/330/1.2/0.8/15
Elven longsword : 36/396/1/1/18

Daedric shortsword : 22/588/1.2/0.8/21
Daedric Longsword : 48/672/1/1/24
