Blade of Woe


The Blade of Woe is a unique dagger belonging to Astrid, who is the leader of the Dark Brotherhood. Its enchantment absorbs 10 points of health.
It is very strong, with a much higher base damage than a Daedric Dagger and less weight than the Dragonbone Dagger. The enchantment is very weak (only six base charges) compared to the potential of one crafted by the Dragonborn. The amount of charge consumed by striking with the dagger lowers as the skill level of Destruction increases. The weapon use no charges by equipping four items with a 25% Fortify Destruction effect for a total of 100% reduction.

Daggers


The dagger is a light, One-Handed short blade weapon that can be found of crafted in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In general it deals the lowest amount of damage though its wielding speed is the fastest of any other One-Handed weapon category like the Sword, Mace, or War Axe. The dagger‘s attack speed is faster, allowing the wielding character to be more nimble and making the dagger a very suitable weapon for the thief.

That way stealth skills can deal significant damage multiplier, often resulting in opponent’s instant kill animation. Since the dagger has a shorter reach than most other weapons. When dual wielding daggers with the Assassin’s Blade perk and Shrouded Gloves, the daggers sneak attack can do a total of 30x damage.

The dagger, being the smallest weapon, it’s the weakest one to use when it comes to blocking opponent’s blows, compared to Two-Handed weapons which result in highest damage absorption when blocking. Most daggers have an attack speed of 1.3 and a maximum reach of 0.7. These two statistics are consistent for all daggers regardless of material.
