I like how the guy thinks that that sword is

"one of the best swords Skyrim has to offer"

and

"It can kill almost anything in roughly one or two hits – striking at 33 damage and burning the target for 10 points."

Oh yea? My bow does 86 damage with 12 damage arrows and 5 fire dmg and even that takes 5 or 6 hits just to kill normal guys.

i think the enemies level up with you, so it depends on your level how strong they are.
Tsuru  +   1028d ago
They do. But its still the claim that he's making as if its some BIG SECRET.

I want to say certain weapons and items are level based like and some are set stats... not 100% sure yet...

but I think that's how they did it in oblivion

The red eagle bane sword is WEAK. My upgraded daedric sword does 70 point damage. I sold the red eagle sword to a merchant almost immediately. If anything, the best weapon in the game is a Sanguine's rose. It conjures a bad ass demora to fight for you for 60 seconds. The bloody things is so overpowered that my demora pwned a frost dragon in under 10 seconds. :[

I kept that, was really tempted to sell it. But those items I decided to keep as 'treasure'. Now I wanna try it out, ahhaha.

Thanks!

Yeah hes obviously only put few hours in. I found that sword and sold it right away. After much blacksmithing ive created a bow that does 309 dmg, and theres still enemies that dont die 1 hit.

The werewolf thing isn't really a secret, as it happens pretty much automatically during the Companions questline.

Red Eagles Bane?! LMAO!!! I'd be real upset it I believed this article and went to Red Eagle Redoubt in hopes of finding the game's best weapon.

Be a werewolf and a vampire? That's a bit Twilight. All we need is Edward and whoever the other guy is to come out and dance around.

But seriously, Twilight sucks...

33 damage for a sword? might as well just drop your pants and bend over so that the enemy's can have a good time with you..lol. I'm level 41 and can take down a dragon no problem with my duel welded legendary enhanced skyforge steel swords with 81 damage each. As soon as I can find a blacksmith potion I will enhance two ebony swords and a ebony armor set.
Note: I have not jet completed the main quest because I'm busy collecting dragon shouts and trying out some mods.

OK this person clearly has not ever played Elders Scrolls

5# Becoming a Vampire is nothing new!
4# Why is healing yourself a secret?
3# This is new but we was told, so its no secret!
2# Werewolf was a surprise, I didn't know and they did not leak it.
1# Red Eagle!, Bet any Enchanted Deadric weapon is better!

This guy can not write an article to save his life. Everything he said is not a secret, and Red Eagles Bane is a horrible weapon i was so disappointing when I got it around lvl 30. If this guy knew anything about this game he would have put Dawn Breaker on there as a bad ass weapon.
itemnine  +   1028d ago
these are "secrets" for the first hour maybe of gameplay. except for the healing one which is a secret only if you're an idiot because you start the game with a Healing spell. (actually the part about equilibrium is a little useful, but the article doesn't say where to get it. i got it on the mage college quest arc, along with the Archmage Robes.) and yes, the red eagle sword sucks. seriously, how long did you play this game before writing this?

Something I found by accident:
Try using a Thu'um in that big cave where Eldergleam is. Don't aim it at anyone, just use it at a wall or something. Sometime after you leave, a messenger will hunt you down with a letter from a "friend" who saw you do it, and offers you a quest. This might only work if you have that Maurice dude pray at the tree...if you trigger the slaughter by the spriggan things, it may end up killing the person who'd send you the letter. I haven't gone on the quest yet so I can't say what it might be...

by the time i got that crappy sword, i was dual wielding Daedric daggers with 99 damage each and frost/fire enchants on them. that sword got tossed to the side. lol.
