And, of course, Soul Trap because at 100 Enchanting, you can add a second spell to your weapon - so the crossbow is always fully charged.
Honestly, that's the case with any weapon once you start maxing out your skills, especially if you cycle alchemy and enchanting boosts to allow yourself to create weapons and item enchants that make Daedric weapons look like rusty nails. At one point I had a one-handed custom-built daedric sword that was one-shotting almost every dragon in the game. Even Alduin went down crazy-fast.

(Basically, you can boost alchemy to make better enchanting potions, which let you make better +alchemy enchantments, and I'm sure you see where this is going. Then you turn around and do the same thing for smithing buffs. In fact, HERE is a video of a guy taking a 1 damage fork and turning it into what is, for all intents and purposes, a tactical nuclear weapon. I have it starting when he starts describing precisely what needs to be done.)
