    I think the sword windshear is overpowered because every hit staggers an opponent while if you bash an opponent with the sword it has a chance to paralyze the opponent for .1 seconds knocking him to the ground making you pretty much untouchable. It even staggers dragons. What do you guys think

    I've not used Windshear much but I dont remember the bash/stagger being op enough to mention. What's your level on the one-handed skill, and what perks do you have? Try making the skill legendary if you can, or use the black book to strip away the perks and see if you feel differently about it.

    Or, as PrisonerLizzie said, dont use it :)

    I like the Windshear, although I can see why you bring these points up. I don't use it that often, but not for any particular reason. I'd switch to a better weapon that feels a little more powerful but doesn't feel too overpowered. It can make the game a little less fun if you know you're using an OP weapon the entire time.

    I never use Windshear as it is in fact the most game-breaking OP weapon you could get your hands on. If it weren't broken I may perhaps have given it a try though
