Here's the thing. I'm playing a stealthy archer in light armor (will eventually use one-handed weapons after I get my archery to a decent level, like 70 . . .). But, I've thought about it. I could go the heavy route in smithing and still get dragon bone light armor, plus the stronger weapons, and be able to equip all my companions who travel with me, no matter what they wear, with the best stuff. The only thing that concerns me is weight of the heavier weapons, and I think they affect being detected in stealth. I am not sure, though. Any thoughts? Glass is lighter than daedric, does it make much of a difference?
