In The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, I am having difficulty selecting a weapon to use. I have several with higher base damage and not-so-useful enchantments, and several with lower base damage and very effective enchantments. I want to use one which is enchanted with Fire Damage and has lower base damage, but I still want to efficiently gain Blunt Weapon levels.
Would leveling up be slowed down by using a weapon with lower base damage?
Is damage from enchantments accounted for in experience in the appropriate weapon skill, or is experience calculated in a different way entirely (per successful hit)?
