|Artifact: Volendrung (dwarven_hammer_volendrung)|
|Type||Blunt Two Hand|
The Hammer of Might, Volendrung is said to have been created by the Dwemer of the now abandoned clan of Rourken, hundreds of years before they disappeared from the world of Tamriel. It has the ability to grant health to its wielder, but it is best known for the paralyzing and strength leeching effects it has when cast at an enemy. Like the Dwarves who created it, Volendrung is prone to disappearing suddenly, resurfacing sometimes in days, sometimes in eons. --Daggerfall description
Volendrung is a Dwemer weapon whose value is mostly historical in Morrowind. It has appeared in other Elder Scrolls games, but the Morrowind version is somewhat less impressive. It lacks any enchantment, and is instead simply a unique-looking warhammer of modest attack power. It is associated with Malacath, though unrelated to his quest in Morrowind. Instead, it can be found in a chest in the Corprusarium Bowels beneath Tel Fyr, near Yagrum Bagarn's platform. It is the last in a series of chests opened by successive keys hidden in other chests, but you can also pick the lock or use an Open spell if you have one that can open a 100 point lock. Neither Yagrum nor Uupse Fyr, who are nearby, will mind if you take it.
