Well, as the titel says...I'm a level 29 and am staying this way for a time now, just so that not all my enemies walk around in deadric armor. Now I'm looking for a glass, ebony or deadric short sword but I haven't found one yet. And I believe this is because short swords are a lot more rare than regular swords, I had the same thing with elvish swords and most of the other types too. So I wonder...has anyone else noticed this aswell?

The wonders of leveled scaling...

Thank god for OOO

There is an Ebony Shortsword, but I think the Glass ones and Daedric only come in enchanted forms. Then again, I don't know.

You could take a peek through the CS for more info.

Why would you want a shortsword? I only use a bow and arrow (For ranged attacks, I typically only fire off one shot before closing in) and a dagger (Because they are light, and I can stab them fast). But as I gain in levels my dagger is becoming more and more useless and I will either have to get a more damaging one (I use sliver because it is good against ghosts and zombies) or go back to using a bigger weapon.

I want a short sword because they are a good combination between damage and speed (the ammount of times a weapon can make a swing in a certain ammount of time), the longsword is strong, but swings almost as slow as a claymore, while the claymore doesn't allow you to use a shield...You still use silver? What level are you? You could try to enchant a stronger type of dagger with fire or lightning, then you'll still do the magic damage on the ghosts (you don't need any special type of weapon to damage zombies), but you can only enchant when you gain access to the arcane university.

Funny, I have two steel shortswords and three enchanted glass ones too, as well as some leet daedric gear. I'm only level 16 IIRC...

yes I have noticed that too. Although I'm only level 11 I still haven't found any dwarvish short swords, yet claymores and longswords are quite plentiful.
