Why does my sword knock enemies down doing no damage over and over again, did I over enchant it?

  1. Ok, so I am starting to wonder if I may have over-enchanted my sword. Half of the time it just knocks them on their ass, and they keep coming, registering no damage. The other half of the time it kills outright.

  2. It's possible your mods are causing strange interactions. Scripts do not always behave predictably in Skyrim.

  1. With that damage output, you should be able to oneshot anything even on Legendary difficulty.
    When you don't, it's most likely due to the superbugged paralize enchant glitching out.

    I'd suggest you to create a new weapon without that enchant and see if you still have problems dealing damage.
    And, if you don't want to kill your enemies in one blow, you have to drastically lower those stats. How much you need to lower depends on the difficulty you play with.

  2. Of course, it goes without saying that it could just be a mod problem.
    What I wrote above is what could be the cause in a non-modded save or a modded save with no mod conflict.
