There are a number of artifact weapons that can be found throughout the game of Morrowind. For Tribunal and Bloodmoon artifacts, check the Tribunal Artifact Page and the Bloodmoon Artifact Page.

Artifacts are specifically defined as anything with a unique appearance. This is opposed to Unique Weapons, which are defined as those which there is only one of, but which have the same appearance as other generic items.

Notes
  • Speed for weapons specifies how fast the weapon swings with higher values indicating a faster weapon.
  • Dmg Ratio gives the damage per time for the weapon with higher values indicating a more powerful item. Ratios are given for the base weapon and any magic based damage the weapon may have.
  • Cost Per Use gives the amount of charge required to use the item at an Enchant skill of 1 and 100.
  • Only the most exceptional magical items and artifacts are included here.

Skull Crusher

The Skull Crusher is an amazingly large, and powerful weapon. The Warhammer was created in a fire, magically fueled by the Wizard, Dorach Gusal, and was forged by the great weaponsmith, Hilbongard Rolamus. The steel is magically hardened and the weight of the weapon is amazingly light, which makes for more powerful swings and deadly blows. The Warhammer was to be put on display for a festival, but thieves got it first. The Skull Crusher still travels Tamriel in search of its creators.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

Skull Crusher is one of the harder weapons to obtain. This warhammer is located in the Forgotten Vaults of Anudnabia, Forge of Hilbongard, which can only be accessed via the Omaren Ancestral Tomb (east of Sadrith Mora), in an enchanted chest hovering above the lava pool. It is found during an Oracle's Quest for the Imperial Cult.

Sunder

Sunder is a legendary hammer crafted by the Dwemer Tonal Architect Lord Kagrenac. Together with Keening and Wraithguard, these tools are necessary to handle the Heart of Lorkhan. All three artifacts came into the possession of the Almsivi following the Battle of Red Mountain. Sunder, along with Keening, was subsequently lost during an annual pilgrimage to the Heart some time in the Third Era.

Carried by Dagoth Vemyn in the citadel of Vemynal, northwest of Dagoth Ur's Citadel in the center of the island.

This artifact is obtained at the end of the Main Quest and is required to finish it. You can get the weapon at any time, but you can't equip it for very long, since it has the 'mortal wound' ability. Once you have Wraithguard (and have it equipped), this will no longer happen. See the Sunder Artifact Quest for more information.

[edit] Notes

  • There is a voice over for Dagoth Ur that goes unused referencing a "false copy" of sunder. No such item is available in the game. However, two unused copies of said hammer, both labeled **Sunder**, can be found in the Construction Set. Bethesda Softworks has assigned them the IDs "false_sunder" and "sunder_fake".

Staff of Hasedoki

Hasedoki was said to have been a very competitive wizard. He wandered the land in search for a wizard who was greater than he. To the best of all knowledge, he never found a wizard who could meet up to his challenge. It is said that he felt so lonely and isolated because so many feared his power, that he bonded his life-force into his very own staff, where his soul remains to this very day. Magic users all over Tamriel have been searching for this magical staff. Granting its wielder a protection of magicka, it is a sure prize for any magic user.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

Carried by Koffutto Gilgar in the Gimothran Ancestral Tomb, which is due west of Wolverine Hall, Sadrith Mora, and due south of Falensarano. A scrawled note gives details about the whereabouts of the staff.

Staff of Magnus

The Staff of Magnus, one of the elder artifacts of Tamriel, was a metaphysical battery of sorts for its creator, Magnus. When used, it absorbs an enemy's health and mystical energy. In time, the Staff will abandon the mage who wields it before he becomes too powerful and upsets the mystical balance it is sworn to protect.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

It is carried by Dreveni Hlaren in the cave of Assu, in the mountains northwest of Molag Mar.

Ajira gives you a quest to find this staff after you reach the rank of Warlock in the Mages Guild.

[edit] Notes

  • This staff also appeared in Arena and Daggerfall with similar enchantments. In Skyrim it appeared with different effects.
  • As part of the Tribunal expansion, this artifact can be sold to Torasa Aram in the museum for 30,000 gold. However, you should keep it until you have shown it to Ajira to progress the Quest.

Volendrung

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.

Auriel's Bow

Auriel's Bow appears as a modest Elven Longbow, but it is one of the mightiest ever to exist in Tamriel's history. Allegedly created and used, like its sister Auriel's Shield, by the great Elvish demi-god, the Bow can turn any arrow into a missile of death and destruction. Without Auriel's power behind it, however, the bow uses its own store of energy for its power. Once exhausted of this energy, the bow will vanish and reappear whereever chance puts it. Its most recent appearances have been the subject of gossip for hundreds of years.

Telvanni Councilor Therana will talk to you about this bow, which she says smells faintly of Ash Yams. She says the 'smell' is strongest in Ghostgate near Ralyn Othravel. Ralyn can be found in the Tower of Dawn and is indeed carrying the bow, though you'll have to kill or pickpocket him in order to get it.

[edit] Notes

  • This bow also appeared in Arena, Daggerfall, and Skyrim (via the Dawnguard plug-in), though it includes powerful enchantments in those games, instead of being unenchanted as it is in Morrowind.
  • As part of the Tribunal expansion, this artifact can be sold to Torasa Aram in the museum for 15,000 gold. Only the unenchanted version can be sold, as its ID will change after enchanting it.

Bow of Shadows

Legend has it that the Bow of Shadows was forged by the Daedra Nocturnal. The legendary ranger, Raerlas Ghile, was granted the Bow for a secret mission that failed, and the Bow was lost. Raerlas did not go down without a hearty fight and is said to have, with the aid of the Bow, taken scores of his foes with him. The Bow grants the user the ability of invisibility and increased speed. Many sightings of the Bow of Shadows have been reported, and it is even said that the sinister Dark Elf assassin of the Second Era, Dram, once wielded this bow.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

This bow is found lying on a desk in the Venim Ancestral Tomb, north of the Zainab Camp.

Goldbrand

The sword Goldbrand is almost a complete mystery. Thieves tell tales about its golden make and how it was actually forged by ancient dragons of the North. Their tales claim that it was given to a great knight who was sworn to protect the dragons. The Sword lends its wielder the ability to do fire damage on an enemy. Goldbrand has not been sighted in recent history and is said to be awaiting a worthy hero.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

This magical katana is received as a reward from Boethiah. See the Boethiah's Quest for more information.

[edit] Notes

  • This sword can be upgraded to the Eltonbrand. See the Eltonbrand page for details.
  • Goldbrand also appears in Oblivion, with a similar enchantment, though it can't be upgraded to Eltonbrand.
  • As part of the Tribunal expansion, this artifact can be sold to Torasa Aram in the museum for 30,000 gold.

The Paladin's Blade is an ancient claymore with offensive capabilities surpassed only by its own defenses. It lends the wielder health, protects him or her from fire, and reflects any spells cast against the wielder back to the caster. Seldom has Chrysamere been wielded by any bladesman for any length of time, for it chooses not to favor one champion.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

One of the more powerful weapons in the game, the Chrysamere is carried by Draramu Hloran in Abanabi (southwest of Sadrith Mora) and is needed for the Lord's Mail quest.

Daedric Crescent

Probably the most rare and even outlawed item of all the great prizes is the Daedric Crescent Blade. The Blade was used by Mehrunes Dagon's Daedric forces in the capture of the Imperial Battlespire. These extremely unique Blades were gathered up and destroyed after the Battlespire was recaptured by the Empire. All but one it seems. Though the Empire believes them all to be destroyed, it is rumored that one still remains in existence, somewhere in Tamriel, though none have ever seen it. The Blade lends it's [sic] wielder the ability to do great damage on an enemy and allows him to paralyze and put heavy wear on his enemy's armor. Quite the prize for any mighty warrior, if it does indeed exist.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

This unique weapon is carried by the Dremora Lord Dregas Volar in Magas Volar. The Daedric Crescent is reminiscent of the weapon in Battlespire, where it first appeared but was not playable.

The only way to acquire this weapon is to travel to Magas Volar using the Daedric Sanctuary Amulet.

Ice Blade of the Monarch

The Ice Blade of the Monarch is truly one of Tamriel's most prized artifacts. Legend has it that the Evil Archmage Almion Celmo enchanted the claymore of a great warrior with the soul of a Frost Monarch, a stronger form of the more common Frost Atronach. The warrior, Thurgnarr Assi, was to play a part in the assassination of a great king in a far off land, and become the new leader. The assassination failed and the Archmage was imprisoned. The Ice Blade freezes all who feel its blade. The Blade circulates from owner to owner, never settling in one place for long.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

The Ice Blade of the Monarch is carried by Llaren Terano, who can be found in the arena of Rotheran, a stronghold south of Dagon Fel on the island of Sheogorad. This weapon is needed for the quest of the same name.

Umbra Sword

The Umbra Sword was enchanted by the ancient witch Naenra Waerr, and its sole purpose was the entrapment of souls. Used in conjunction with a soul gem, the Sword allows the wielder the opportunity to imprison an enemy's soul in the gem. Naenra was executed for her evil creation, but not before she was able to hide the Sword. The Umbra Sword is very choosy when it comes to owners and therefore remains hidden until a worthy one is found.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

Carried by the Orc warrior Umbra, just northeast of Suran, over the hill from the tradehouse (acquired during the Umbra quest).

[edit] Notes

  • This sword also appears in Oblivion, with a similar enchantment, though in Oblivion it is a one-handed weapon.
  • As part of the Tribunal expansion, this artifact can be sold to Torasa Aram in the museum for 30,000 gold.

Fang of Haynekhtnamet

Black Marsh was once known to be inhabited with what the Argonians called the Wamasus. Northern men considered them to be intelligent dragons with lightning for blood. One such mighty beast, Haynekhtnamet, was slain by the Northern men, though it took 7 days and nights, and a score of men. One of the surviving men took a fang home as a trophy. The fang was carved down into a blade and fashioned into a small dagger. The Dagger mysteriously houses some of the beast's magical properties and grants the user the ability to do shock damage on an opponent. This unique Dagger is seen occasionally by traveling heroes.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

This dagger can be obtained by searching in an altar trough in the Shrine of Pitted Dreams, within the Sixth House base Mamaea (southeast of Gnisis).

This cursed fork completely drains your Magicka when equipped, and does very little damage at that. But Sheogorath insists that you use it to slay a Giant Bull Netch during his quest. It's well worth the effort, though, as you will be rewarded with the Spear of Bitter Mercy. The fork is listed as an artifact because no item in the game has the same appearance. However, in the construction set, there is an item named "Iron Fork", that seems to be the item base for the Fork of Horripilation.

The Dark Brotherhood has coveted this ebony dagger for generations. This mythical artifact is capable of slaying any creature instantly. History does not record any bearers of Mehrunes' Razor. However, the Dark Brotherhood was once decimated by a vicious internal power struggle. It is suspected that the Razor was involved.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

You find this artifact via a quest for the Daedra Mehrunes Dagon, in his shrine at Yasammidan, just west of the Dwemer Ruins of Arkngthunch-Sturdumz, west of Ald Velothi on the coast north of Gnisis. Mehrunes Dagon will ask you to retrieve the Razor from the Alas Ancestral Tomb, in the center of the Molag Amur mountain range, north of Molag Mar, and south of the Erabenimsun Camp. Find and return the rusty dagger to Mehrunes Dagon who will turn it into the Razor. See the Mehrunes Dagon's Quest for more information.

Spear of Bitter Mercy

One of the more mysterious artifacts is the Spear of Bitter Mercy. Little to nothing is known about the Spear. There are no recorded histories but many believe it to be of Daedric origin. The only known legend about it is its use by a mighty hero during the fall of the Battlespire. The hero was aided by the Spear in the defeat of Mehrunes Dagon and the recapturing of the Battlespire. Since that time, the Spear of Bitter Mercy has made few appearances within Tamriel.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

Obtained on a quest for the Daedra Sheogorath in the Ihinipalit shrine in the Underworks of St. Delyn Canton in Vivec. Sheogorath will ask you to recover the Fork of Horripilation from a mad hermit near Ald Redaynia, on the long island north of the mainland, and use it to kill a Giant Bull Netch that lives nearby. See the Sheogorath's Quest for more information.
