Dragonborn:Artifacts

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search

An artifact is a unique and unusually powerful magical item. This page lists the artifacts added to Skyrim by the Dragonborn expansion; information for all other artifacts in Skyrim can be found on this page.

Artifact Definition

The definition used for artifacts on this article is that the item must meet all three of the following requirements:

  • Be unique in appearance.
  • Only appear once in the game.
  • Have a unique and useful enchantment.

None of these artifacts can be disenchanted to learn the enchantment. Some of them may be improved by smithing. The material and perk relevant to each item is given below. Improving enchanted items requires the Arcane Blacksmith perk. However, many artifacts do not have an applicable perk that allows improvement past flawless quality without a Smithing skill of greater than 100.

The Bloodskal Blade

The Bloodskal Blade is a two-handed greatsword found in Bloodskal Barrow on the corpse of Gratian Caerellius. Its power attack shoots out an arc of red energy, depending on the direction of the slash. This energy is used for a puzzle within the barrow. It is also useful in combat, due to the fact that it deals damage with both the slash and the energy attack, allowing the player to hit enemies normally out of their reach. The sword also never needs recharging. It can be tempered with a silver ingot.

For more information, see the Bloodskal Blade article.

The Dwarven Black Bow of Fate

The Dwarven Black Bow of Fate is a unique Dwarven bow found in the Dwarven ruin of Kagrumez after completing all three puzzles. The bow has a similar structural shape to a regular Dwarven bow, except that its color scheme is entirely pitch-black. In addition, on the bow's shaft near the handhold, there are intricate patterns that appear to be constellations.

Its enchantment gives a 50% chance of absorbing 25 points from the target's Health, Stamina, and/or Magicka, meaning that, on any given strike, you may absorb points for none, one, two, or all three. It can be tempered with an ebony ingot, and benefits from the Dwarven Smithing perk.
