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.
