In Skyrim:The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Two-Handed weapons rely on the Two-Handed Skill, directly affecting their damage. The 19 perks in this skill tree only apply to two-handed weapons. Though much heavier, two-handed weapons deal more damage than one-handed weapons and can attach multiple foes at once, the main trade off is that you cannot duel wield or carry a shield.

The fastest way of leveling the two-handed skill is to obtain a weapon with a high base damage and DPS, then attack enemies as fast as possible, the Longhammer is the perfect weapon to level up your two-handed skill early in Skyrim. With each level of the two-handed weapon skill all two-handed weapons will deal 0.5% more damage.
