Silver is typically used to enhance the appearance of the item or to increase its effectiveness against certain creatures, such as Undead or Werewolves. Solid silver is generally not used due to its high price and low strength, but is instead plated onto another, cheaper metal (such as steel).
The Bloodmoon expansion adds a number of additional Nordic Silver Weapons.
Although less common, some silver-plated armor also exists, in particular, Imperial Silver Armor, documented with the other Imperial-style armors.
