Hopesfire is obtained only by killing the Tribunal god Almalexia. See The Mad God quest for more information. It is one of the best one-handed swords in the game (Morrowind, Tribunal, and Bloodmoon), and according to Almalexia is twinned with Trueflame.


  • Despite its name, it is a shock not fire item.
  • Unlike its twin, Trueflame, Hopesfire does not act as a torch when drawn, despite similar visual animations.
