This page summarizes the base weapons in Daggerfall. See the material modifiers below to see how damage varies depending on what the item is made out of, and which is minimum required to hit certain monsters. For special weapons, see the artifacts page.

Material Modifiers[edit]

Weapons can be made of various metals. Different materials affect the damage done by a weapon, its weight, and its ability to harm certain monsters. However, due to a game bug that displays weapon damage ranges via in-game tooltip information by accounting for the material modifier twice rather than only once, the damage ranges shown in game are incorrect. Therefore, for clarity, the below table lists these damage modifiers in two columns: the first shows the modifiers actually applied by each weapon, and the second shows the incorrect modifiers displayed in inventory tooltips within the game. Finally, note that hit chance modifiers, although not displayed in game, equal ten times the material damage modifiers, as shown below. These damage, hit, and other modifiers are:

Material Damage Modifier (actual) Damage Modifier (displayed) To Hit Modifier Weight Modifier* Color Notes
Iron -1 -2 -10 1.00 Grey
Steel 0 0 0 1.25 Light grey Steel or better required to harm imps
Silver 0 0 0 1.00 Silver Silver or better required to harm lycanthropes, ghosts, wraiths, mummies, and standard vampires
Elven +1 +2 +10 1.00 Silver Elven or better required to harm nymphs
Dwarven +2 +4 +20 0.75 Yellow Dwarven or better required to harm harpies
Mithril +3 +6 +30 1.00 Blue Mithril or better required to harm gargoyles, ancient vampires, any liches, and any daedra
Adamantium +3 +6 +30 1.00 Dark grey
Ebony +4 +8 +40 0.50 Black
Orcish +5 +10 +50 1.00 Green
Daedric +6 +12 +60 1.25 Red

*Modified weights are rounded to the nearest 0.25kg, rounding down at midpoint values.

Weapon List[edit]

The following lists all the base weapons, sorted by skill type. The prices set forth here reflect non-enchanted items only.

The weight and price values can be found here and here. Note that the final purchase or sale price can quite easily vary by a factor of 20% or more in either direction, depending on both your Mercantile skill and that of the shopkeeper.

Finally, due to the game bug described in the Material Modifiers section above, the below tables list weapon damage ranges in two columns: the first shows the ranges actually applied by each weapon, and the second shows the incorrect ranges displayed in inventory tooltips within the game.
