Why do the simplest enemies kill me so fast
So I've got full dragonplate armor plus a legendary dragonplate sword and a shield. But when I face the simplest of enemies (normal falmer, frostbite spiders) They do take quite a bit of health from me. I have to retreat and heal up, sometimes I end up dead before i can heal. Dragonplate is the best heavy armor right? Oh, and my difficulty is adept.

Depends a bit on your perks, and health that you choose when you level up.

You can also improve you armor even further if you are good at smithing.

You might also have some mods that changes the difficulty. Hard to know without telling us more

Didn't know you could improve armor. Anyways, my mods are:

Unofficial dawnguard patch

Unofficial hearthfire patch

Falskaar

Unlimited bookshelves

Realistic lighting overhaul

Mike Fox's Darker Nights

Merchants revamped

Better water

Enchanced blood textures

Dogs of skyrim

Quieter Dogs

SeeEnchs

yea if you have weak health stats, weak armor perks anything will kill you fast. you need to add perks into the specific armor type you are in to raise your armor rating and get your health up.

i hope this is not your load order ''Falskaar'' is a .esm file and should be loaded before your unoffical patches and any other .esp's

I'm not sure what "SeeEnchs" is, but otherwise I doubt that the difficulty you have is due to mods at least.

If you want more help however, post the following information:
1) What is your max health?
2) What is your skill level in heavy armor and blocking? (if you havn't tried smithing before, try to raise that one as well. The better you are at smithing, the bigger the improvements you make will be).
3) What perks do you have in heavy armor and blocking?
4) What "armor value" do you have? (visible in the lower inventory menu when looking at different armor parts)

Also, assuming that you have max smithing, with all the related perks, I'm pretty sure that DAEDRIC armor is stronger than dragonplate armor, oddly enough.

Daedric is better armor-wise, but dragon has better weapons.

The dragonplate sword isn't that strong, try getting a Daedric Sword that's fully upgraded.

Dragonbone weapons (added by Dawnguard) are better than Daedric weapons, but Daedric armor is better then Dragonbone armor. A fully upgraded dragonbone sword is substantially stronger than a fully upgraded Daedric sword.
