I started a Bosmer Assassin/Warrior, who uses only bound weapons, dual wield bound swords and a bound bow. Now I just did the quest for Miridia, I think thats her name, and got this really nice sword. Problem is, I dont know how much damage the bound swords do in comparison, they dont do the extra elemental damage, but they have a built in soul drain. I assume with the conjuration perk that increases bound weapon damage, and the increase in one-handed weapon damage, the bound swords do a solid amount of damage, but I am not sure. Anyone do the numbers on the bound sword that can give an accurate comparison?
