Poll: Your Weapon melee preference

Sword and fireball.

Daggers for Fraggers.

I use those balled-up fists on the end of my arms. Pow, smack! Suck it, Forsworn! Eat my Dragonplate-armored fist! Open your mouth and suck it down, ha!

EDIT: For the OP, you should have just stated either one-handed, two-handed, fists or magic. It would have made the poll less confusing.

1-h Mace and magic in the other.

#6 Posted by pyromagnestir (4324 posts) -

I like dual wielding, and have various options for doing so.

#7 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

1h Mace + Shield.

I just love to bludgeon.

#8 Posted by Saethir (353 posts) -

Dual daggers. Love getting my assassin on.

Just one dagger. One dagger is enough.

#11 Posted by Deadmanforking (577 posts) -

My current character is using a 2 handed axe.

#12 Posted by TerraMantis (283 posts) -

I love the shield charge mixed with Havoc physics, sending a row of guys flipping all over the place after you run through them is always funny. I guess I could use any one-handed weapon to do that, but I always stick to tradition I guess... sword and board.

some times I change it up with a Spark or something else.

#14 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Two-handed hammer. Who cares if it's slow when one smack is all you need?

#15 Posted by Skyfire543 (691 posts) -

A single dagger.

#16 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

I use dual swords or a bow.

#17 Posted by innacces14 (735 posts) -

Single Dragonbone Dagger. Shit hit the fan? TWO DRAGONBONE DAGGERS!

kitty claws

#19 Posted by fetchfox (1268 posts) -

Two Daedric katanas (Morrowind weapons mod), so I guess that would be two swords.

This, although I tend to stick to lightning as nothing seems to be strong against it and I like its low-health special perk effect (disintegration) the best of the three elements by far. Good to see Battlemages reppin' hard, in any case.

#21 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6398 posts) -

One-handed mace with various forms of magic in the other hand. Typically though, I am two handed destruction all the time.

#22 Edited by BaneFireLord (2935 posts) -

Other: One handed sword (Flawless Dragonbane) with Fast Healing or Sanguine Rose offhand (360) and one handed sword (Dragon's Strength, from the Sea of Ghosts mod) with a destruction spell offhand (PC).

My first character rocked two handed weapons. I generally went straight to using Volendrung when thing's got heavy. With the effect on, 1-on-1, I never ran into anything that it couldn't make short work of.
My new character uses two swords/sword+shield and bows and arrows, generally.

This. What's with the no daggers option in the poll? Racist.

To be precise, I roll with Valdr's Lucky Dagger.

#25 Posted by VoshiNova (1691 posts) -

where be thy dagger option! >_<

unless one handed sword was that option....in which case, one handed sword! >_<

#26 Posted by EchoEcho (827 posts) -

One-handed sword with magic. Or another sword, if I'm feeling fancy.

#27 Posted by Sumbog (484 posts) -

1 one handed sword, I keep my one hand free at all times.

#28 Posted by ajamafalous (12000 posts) -

Nothing because they're garbage

#29 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -

I played with one sword and one dagger most of my stealth guy playthrough, when I wasn't using a bow anyway

#30 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -
#31 Posted by Soapy86 (2622 posts) -

I voted for the wrong thing, but mace + shield is typically what I like.

#32 Edited by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

2handed sword. Although now I'm going with a hunter character so daggers.

#33 Posted by Skiiv (6 posts) -

has anyone tried magic + shield?

#34 Posted by JamesKM716 (5 posts) -

Personally i like One Sword (Dawnbreaker) with a One-Handed War Axe (Daedric-Normal or Soultrap)

Hey! 4 week old thread! Well my opinions are about the same still.

#36 Posted by Spoonman671 (4641 posts) -

Battleaxe, yo.

#37 Posted by believer258 (11914 posts) -

Dawnbreaker in right hand, healing spell in left, never die.

#38 Posted by ShockD (2401 posts) -

Mace and shield like a true barbarian.

Well, dual wielding is definitely the most powerful option, especially if you know a thing or two about smithing(the killing Ancient Dragons in one power attack kind of powerful) Even a one-handed build will outdamage two-handed because of weapon speed, though Dual Savagery is really powerful.

However, I find the game with these kinds of weapons boring, so I elected to play without any form of weapons, or armor for that matter. I'm playing pure mage, the only points I've invested outside of Magic skill trees are in Alchemy and Smithing(for companions). Thunderbolt gives me more satisfaction than 10 melee weapon kills.
