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.

  • The text "Fires 30% faster than a standard bow" is slightly misleading. Each different type of bow has its own weapon speed. So while the Zephyr may fire faster than a standard Dwarven Bow, it has the same speed as a Long Bow, and is 100% faster than a Daedric Bow. Additionally, the increase in speed is from 0.75 to 1.0, which is 33.33% faster, as opposed to the listed 30%.
  • Zephyr is a permanent item, and will always remain even if placed in a respawning container.
  • Zephyr cannot be disenchanted.


  • Activating a weapon rack with Zephyr equipped may cause it to disappear, forcing you to reload a previous save to recover it.
