    How much damage does a conjured weapon do?

    I've really come to enjoy conjuring, especially dual-wielding bound swords. They weigh nothing, and I get skill just for bringing them out, and the coup-de-grace is that they automatically soul trap (hooray enchanting!).

    The issue is though, how much damage am I losing by using conjured weapons over carrying the average/best weapons available to my level?

    I have the perk that increases bound weapon damage, and I know it's augmented by my one handed skill, but does my conjuration skill also augment the damage? or just the cost/duration?

  • They count as Daedric weapons.

Also, Lets say my Daibo does 40.0 damage, will i do more damage with 2x Fists doing 40.0 damage each ? Are the skill damage based on Weapons SUM or just the weapon in the main hand ?

Let's say I have a ring that has +2-4 damage and another that has +15 dexterity. I am a demon hunter. I find that equiping the +damage ring gives a much greater boost to my DPS (as shown on my character screen) than the dexterity ring, which is supposed to increase my damage by 15. Does anyone know how this works? Does this have anything to do with how +damage is calculated?

  • Possible Duplicate: How is skill damage calculated based on weapon damage? I am confused a little bit about weapon-damage based abilities. My minimum weapon damage for my barbarian is 1066... is actually my weapon damage (1066) multiplied by your strength divided by 100, multiplied by the spell percentage (100). This all makes sense, until I analyze another spell (Earthquake): Let S equal 12.51 (my strength/100). Let P equal 2000 (percentage based on Earthquake) Let D equal 1066 (my lowest weapon damage) S*P*D = 26.67132 million. Based on this, earthquake should be doing ~3.3 million

  • Possible Duplicate: How does +% damage on weapons work? Now that I'm nearing level 60, I'm seeing many weapons that have +% damage on them. Is this number already factored into the listed DPS of the weapon? Does this number affect anything beyond the base damage of the weapon it is on? If so, how? Does it affect my off-hand weapon if I'm dual wielding? Is it applied before my primary stat's multipliers? Basically, I'm curious if I can safely ignore this property on an item when doing comparison shopping in the AH because it's already factored into the listed damage range

  • Possible Duplicate: Do weapons and spells in the off-hand suffer from reduced effectiveness? In Skyrim for the PC, I find the fact that my left hand is bound to the right mouse button, and my right hand is bound to the left mouse button (by default) a little strange as a first time Elder Scrolls player. I've remapped the keys, but now I wonder, will swinging my Mace in my left hand all the sudden make me suffer any kind of damage penalty? Is my character ambidextrous such that I do the same damage with weapons and spells regardless of which hand I use?
