|Charge/Cost = Uses||3000/65=46|
The Pale Blade is a sword rewarded to the player for completing The Pale Lady. The sword's enchantment causes instantaneous frost damage, and also inflicts its target with fear for thirty seconds. Tempering the Pale Blade requires one steel ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, with the benefits of tempering being doubled by the Steel Smithing perk.
The sword is not to be confused with the Blade of the Pale, which is the reward for becoming Thane of the Pale.
