Category:Skyrim - One-Handed Weapons


One-Handed is a skill in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. One-Handed directly affects the damage dealt with one-handed weapons. The perks obtained in this skill tree only affect one-handed weapons. Due to a glitch, this included the Two-Handed weapons Ebony Blade and Headsman's Axe prior to patch v1.9.

The One-Handed skill tree allows damage output to be increased by wielding two one-handed weapons simultaneously. This is referred to as "dual-wielding." While this potentially doubles damage output, it also removes the ability to block any attacks. It is advisable, though not necessary, to back up a dual-wielding play style with defensive skill trees, such as Heavy Armor or Restoration. An exploit for "dual-wielding" is to hold both attack buttons to perform a power attack but before it is performed press both the attack buttons again, which results in a stamina-free power attack. Alteration can also bring advantages by allowing the use of various forms of mage armor.

Despite not adding towards the One-Handed skill, unarmed attacks do benefit from Dual Flurry. Perks from other skills that affect one-handed weapons (such as the Backstab perk from the Sneak skill) also seem to affect unarmed attacks.

One-handed weapons have a shorter range than two-handed weapons, but one-handed weapons move faster and leave an open hand for spells, a shield, or another weapon.



Daggers


Skyrim Steel Dagger.webp

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.
