But why would they? An enchanted longsword that's used against someone who is magic immune is still a longsword. It should still do the same damage as a normal longsword does. Trying to balance that out would be... strange?

Not really. Plenty of RPGs have multiple, non-enchanted versions of the same basic weapon type, each with variable damage. Some blades are crafted better than others. A rusty, dull, iron sword isn't as effective as a sharp, clean, steel sword.

I dunno Jerykk, usually in an RPG you use the non-enchanted stuff until you find enchanted stuff and then you never look back.

The reason it probably feels strange in TES is that enchanted stuff becomes easy to get after a while so you see all these other swords that you will never use.

My only issue would be having the common enemies you fight wear all the same enchanted stuff you do all the time.
