Logic: 2H swords are not extremely heavy but with both hands you have more power and strength to get speed and momentum or better attacks, on a horse you have the speed and momentum of the horse moving to better your attacks with power.
#136 to #28 - Rascal (08/11/2013) [-]
Depends on the make of the weapon, region of it's creation, and it's creator. Claymores used by Templars in the Crusades weighed up to 20lbs whereas Scottish Claymores usually weighed about 6-12 lbs.

I blame momentum...
User avatar #62 to #1 - gravitystereo (08/05/2013) [-]
53 thumbs? You guys should know better. His arm and the sword are moving at the same speed. Momentum would only hold the sword up if his arm was going at a faster speed than the sword (dragging it into place by momentum).

Two handed swords can be used with one hand, it's not like they weigh 80 pounds. Using two hands allows you to swing with more power, riding on horseback gives momentum, so you don't need to hands to still get that same power in a swing. That's the way I look at it.
User avatar #77 to #64 - alfrebecht (08/05/2013) [-]
Actually, using a two-handed sword isn't about the power involved, it's the leverage. Think about it like a baseball bat. You can't get the rotations at a sufficient speed with only one hand (essentially you're using the other hand as a pivot). Put simply, when you strike with a sword you don't push it, you turn it.
As for on horseback though, a two-handed weapon might rip your arm off used that way, but this is fantasy, so who really cares all that much I guess

Greatswords don't actually weigh that much.

A Scottish claymore is only about 6lbs.

A real life Zweihander of the same style in Skyrim, as made by cold steel is only 6 pounds, 13.5 ounces. Not that much really.

User avatar #113 to #43 - dedaluminus (08/05/2013) [-]
Actually, you're not a failure. Your horse can't fight while you're on it, and it's hard to hit anything, but when you're on the ground not only do you have full range of motion, but your horse turns into a killing machine that will not rest until every ************ that intends you harm has been turned into reddish jam.
User avatar #57 to #40 - akkere (08/05/2013) [-]
Actually, it wasn't until an update at some point that you were able to use weapons while on horseback.
If you never updated your game, you never have, and never will so long as you use that version, be able to enjoy the luxury of wielding a weapon while on horse.
User avatar #75 to #40 - thundagawd (08/05/2013) [-]
Mounted combat was implemented into the game during update 1.6 alongside dawnguard which came over a year ago.
User avatar #76 to #75 - Kabutops (08/05/2013) [-]
i guess that explains most of it. all i really used a horse for then was to get around places
User avatar #78 to #76 - thundagawd (08/05/2013) [-]
To be honest, the mounted combat isn't THAT great either, it's hard to land hits with a melee weapon, chances are whatever's attacking you would have time to kill your horse before you managed to position yourself properly to hit them back. Using a bow on horseback is cool though, but again, if it's a serious fight, it's better to get off your horse. I really only fight on horseback to smack mudcrabs while zooming by just for ***** and giggles.
User avatar #79 to #78 - Kabutops (08/05/2013) [-]
slapping mudcrabs around for ***** and giggles?
have you ever heard of the swearing mudcrab mod, my friend?

Maybe because on land he's got his weapon out which means he's about to fight properly.

On a horse he has to have one hand on the reigns but can still use his other hand incase somebody tries to attack, it just wouldn't be as powerful as a two handed strike
User avatar #130 to #123 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/05/2013) [-]
The horse momentum can lead to an attack much more powerful than you could get on the ground.
User avatar #25 - galaxyguy (08/05/2013) [-]
Whilst on horseback you use the momentum of the horse's movement to swing the blade, therefor you do not need a second hand.
On foot you do not have such luxury, and you must swing the blade manually, therefor you need two hands.
Really, it is simple and I'm utterly disappointed you failed to make that connection.

Put 7 skill points to alchemy, as many as you want in smithing, and a bunch in enchanting. make a potion that enhances enchanting, enchant armor to enhance alchemy, put on alchemy boosting armor, make better enchanting potion, next enchant new armor while using better enchanting potion. Repeat 4 time for max stats in enchanting/smithing/alchemy then make over powered armor with over powered enchantments on them.
User avatar #103 to #90 - colector (08/05/2013) [-]
Actually combining Alchemy with Smithing at top levels results in the strongest equipment possible in the game (assuming you took proper perks). Yes Alchemy is quite a bother but it is actually worth it.
User avatar #119 to #103 - fizzor (08/05/2013) [-]
Eh, I've never been one for using alchemy. Smithing yes but never alchemy. Right now I'm doing a full mage playthrough (I use zero weapons or I use them very, very rarely and I'm completely dependant on my magicka and spells) and I already got decent clothing with good enchantments on them (the usual Morokei+Arch-Mage's Robes combo, The Gauldur Amulet, Ring of Replenishing, some boots that give me +50% shock resistance and Cultist gloves with +25 magicka boost), and I have no need for armor since I have the Dragonhide spell, which is one of the best spells to ever exist.
User avatar #116 to #90 - stefanovic (08/05/2013) [-]
alchemy is a great way to earn money, just make paralysis potions etc.
User avatar #134 to #90 - corpsedolly (08/08/2013) [-]
I use alchemy rarely, mostly to just give me those extra experience points to level up.
I don't give a **** for smithing though.

Here's a very high costing potion that will get you gold and points.
Giants toe
Swamp Fungal Pod

Make those and you'll level up alchemy pretty quick.
User avatar #92 to #90 - paradoxofnight (08/05/2013) [-]
being a smith has awesome perks but it costs alot of gold to buy the raw material. as for alchemy, i know as much as you do.

i did when i could but for the more rare material like ebony i would end up buying. please dont make me type too much since i am using my xbox and no keyboard
User avatar #97 to #96 - tinglyturtletaint (08/05/2013) [-]
I don't know if they changed it. But it used to be to level, you could just use iron daggers, then when it's maxed you make dragon bone to wear.
User avatar #98 to #97 - paradoxofnight (08/05/2013) [-]
alot of this chat is useless for me bcuz a couple months ago i finally maxed out smithing.

When on a horse you can use the momentum to swing the sword instead of just your own strength.
User avatar #126 to #120 - PedoBearsAcomin (08/05/2013) [-]
Yea that just doesnt make sense, that would only help if the horse slowed down quickly. Thats like saying its easier to swing a sword in a car
User avatar #128 to #126 - findash (08/05/2013) [-]
What I'm trying to say you don't actually have to swing the sword as much as when standing still.

well, if you are moving, the potential energy of the sword on a horse on full gallop is possibly more than most people could generate while merely wielding the sword with both hands.

Even though you can easily go over the armor cap with even iron armor at high smithing levels? Plus mixing armor looks better and in skyrim appearance > stats (which is why I never touched daedric armor)
