Skyrim:Unique Weapons

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

Unique Weapons are weapons available in Skyrim generally found in fixed locations, unlike most equipment in the game, which are randomly generated or generic equipment (see Generic Magic Weapons). Some of these weapons can be improved through smithing. Improving enchanted weapons requires the Arcane Blacksmith perk.

Many of these items are quest rewards, although some of the most valuable quest rewards are listed at Leveled Items (unique items, but with level-dependent statistics) and Artifacts (unusually powerful unique items with unique appearances and enchantments). For unique items that are needed to complete quests, please see the Quest Items article. For other unique items in the game, see the Unique Items article. For a list of the other available weapons, see the weapon category.

A Bloodcursed Elven Arrow is an elven arrow that has been tainted with the blood of a Daughter of Coldharbour, a female vampire created by Molag Bal himself.

It is the contemporary and counterpart of the Sunhallowed Elven Arrow.

Glass Bow of the Stag Prince

The Glass Bow of the Stag Prince is a glass bow wielded by Falas Selvayn, who can only be found at the Ramshackle Trading Post between the hours of 12am and 6am. It is identical to a normal glass bow, but it deals one more damage. Its enchantment bestows the Blessing of the Stag Prince while the bow is equipped, which increases your health and stamina by 5 points for every 20 animals killed by the bow, maxing out at 25 points after killing 80 animals.

This bow is relatively difficult to obtain. Falas does not sell it, nor can you obtain it by killing him, as he is marked as essential. If you have the Misdirection perk, you can pickpocket it from him. If you lack the perk, reverse pickpocketing a melee weapon or a higher quality bow onto him and then getting him to enter combat (attacking and drawing the nearby spriggan towards him works) will cause him to unequip the bow, allowing it to be bought from him or pickpocketed normally.

It can also be obtained by pickpocketing.[verification needed — only while he's asleep?]

Horksbane

Horksbane is a steel mace found next to the corpse of Saden, its former owner, on Horker Island. It is identical to a normal steel mace in all respects. Horksbane was meant to deal 20 more damage to horkers, but doesn't due to a bug. Despite its effect, it can be enchanted further. Horksbane can be tempered with a steel ingot, with the improvement from the tempering being doubled if the Steel Smithing perk is also unlocked.

Saden's Journal sheds some light on how Horksbane was created. In life, Saden was a member of the Blood Horkers pirate gang. Their leader, Haldyn, ordered Saden and some other pirates to scout out islands that could be used for an outpost. When the arrived on Horker Island, several of Saden's crew members were set upon by the horkers living there and killed. The sight of his crew members being slaughtered made Saden so angry that his anger coursed into the steel mace he was holding, creating Horksbane.

Karliah's Bow is the version of the Nightingale Bow used by NPCs, such as Karliah and Nightingale Sentinels.

Curiously, this version of the weapon does more damage, weighs less, and is faster than the highest leveled version of the player's bow. The characters who have a copy of this weapon will never drop it, and it does not show up when pickpocketing them, meaning it cannot be obtained during normal gameplay.

Nettlebane is a unique, crudely-engraved ebony dagger, originally made by hagravens to sacrifice spriggans. Compared to the typical ebony dagger, Nettlebane compares unfavorably. It weighs twice what a normal ebony dagger would, does four points less damage, and is worth nowhere near as much gold. Furthermore, it can't even be enchanted, making it fairly worthless outside of its related quest. The only way to improve upon this weapon is tempering it with an ebony ingot, although it does not benefit from the Ebony Smithing perk.

A quiver of Sunhallowed Elven Arrows

A Sunhallowed Elven Arrow is an elven arrow that has been blessed by Knight-Paladin Gelebor. The arrows are visually similar to the elven arrows that are needed to create them, with a gray shaft instead of a golden one, and the fletchings alternating between gray and white. The quiver is similar, being a more pallid color compared to the strong golden one of normal arrows. When fired at the sun during the day with Auriel's Bow, it will cause a sunburst, doing damage to any target caught in the blast, with undead taking triple damage. It is the contemporary and counterpart of the Bloodcursed Elven Arrow.

An Orcish Warhammer

The Longhammer is a unique Orcish warhammer that belonged to the bandit Rahd before he was killed during a Falmer attack as part of the related quest. It can be recovered from the Breton's dead grasp within Liar's Retreat. Compared to the standard Orcish warhammer, the Longhammer weighs eight units less, while also having half the base value of the normal version. The true value of the weapon is its speed, as it has the same swinging speed as a mace. While it lacks an enchantment, one can be added after acquiring it to further improve its worth. Tempering this weapon requires an orichalcum ingot, with any improvements made being doubled if the Orcish Smithing perk is also unlocked.

The Woodsman's Friend

The Woodsman's Friend is a unique iron battleaxe found alongside a dead wood cutter. With no enchantment and no way to improve the weapon through blacksmithing, the only advantage this weapon has over the generic version of this weapon is the single extra point of default damage it can do. However, as the weapon has a lower speed, the overall benefit of this extra point of damage is diminished. Additionally, it has approximately half of the gold value of a normal iron battleaxe, making it notably subpar stat-wise to the standard version of this item.

Tempering Trollsbane requires a steel ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, with the improvement from the tempering being doubled if the Steel Smithing perk is also unlocked.

Windshear

Windshear is a unique Scimitar which can be found lodged inside of the bowsprit of The Katariah. As The Katariah cannot be accessed until the quest Hail Sithis! has begun, this weapon is similarly impossible to acquire until that quest has been started. This means that the weapon is unavailable if you decide to complete the quest Destroy the Dark Brotherhood! instead.

Windshear's unique enchantment causes its attacks to stagger an opponent when hit and causes its bash attacks to paralyze them for a tenth of a second. As the enchantment only works for its bash attack, the enchantment will not work if a spell or another item, such as a shield or secondary weapon, is being held in the other hand. Tempering Windshear requires a steel ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk. The benefits of tempering Windshear are doubled if the Steel Smithing perk is unlocked.

Zephyr is a unique Dwarven bow that belonged to Katria before she fell down a cliff to her death inside of Arkngthamz. The bow itself rests at the top of a ravine, precariously perched on the side of a fallen tree. Zephyr's unique enchantment gives it a much higher draw speed than regular Dwarven bows, making it one of the quickest bows available, alongside Auriel's Bow and the long bow. Zephyr can be further improved with a Dwarven metal ingot if the Arcane Blacksmith perk is unlocked, with the benefits of these alterations being doubled if the Dwarven Smithing perk is also unlocked.
