I've just noticed some interesting occurences today, in patch 1.4 my Ebony bow damage was 73. Now in patch 1.5 when I have my character equip the bow minus arrows. The base damage goes to 100, not only this but bows in smithing menu show base damage double of starting damage before improvement on grinder. For example, in patch 1.4 Elven Bow I believe has a base damage of 30 to 38 now it shows base damage of 62 before I even create it. I may have to delete patch 1.5 and re-download it. But has anyone else had the stats of their damage increasing.
Had to delete a couple saves for my battlemage due to swords randomly increasing to insane damage of 3,000 + without me using any glitch or improvement. Went to my ranger/warrior save and notice the bow damage increase occurence as well. Not sure if many here are dealing with it, but been searching and found a good amount have dealt with this. Not sure if Bethesda has buffed the bow damage but to be honest a 100+ damage bow is a bit overpowered for my taste. Either way I'll be redownloading the patch to see if that may help. But any information on this issue is welcome.
