Is It Worth It to Craft Weapons?
There was always Legendary Tier Blueprints. They used to be just sword, but now there is one for Glove, Sword, Blade, Spear, and Staff.
Crafted Weapons are stronger because you will get a 3rd effect and more stats if you make them with Level 5 Smithing/Craft Weapon.
Found weapons will only have 2 effects, while Crafted ones will have 3.
