A sword is a straight or slightly curved weapon having a long edge or edges used for cutting, slicing, and piercing. Swords can be one-handed or two-handed. In Tamriel, expertise in the use of all kinds of swords fall under the Blade skill. The following are the types of swords:

One-handed swordsEdit

ShortswordEdit

Shortswords are one-handed swords. They are smaller and less damaging than a longsword of the same material, but are lighter, cheaper, and have quicker attack speed. They generally have a (20%) faster attack speed and (20%) shorter reach. The shorter reach makes it easier to avoid accidentally hitting friendly NPCs or creatures.
