Best weapon in Skyrim: Chillrend, Wuuthrad – What else have you found?

By Updated on

Now that you have had the chance to share some quality time with Skyrim, how are you finding your experience so far, ignoring the problems that have already been well documented recently? We want to focus on some of the new weapons that are scattered throughout Skyrim, and ask you what discoveries you have made so far.

We have a found a few decent weapons ourselves, and two of these are arguably some of the best in the game. Considering the sheer scope of Skyrim though, we have a feeling that there may be even better weapons out there, so we’re leaving it up to you to tell us what weapons you’re using at the moment.

One weapon which we found very useful and have seen a lot of positive feedback is the Chillrend. It is an enchanted weapon found in Riftweald Manor in Riften and carries with it some very impressive magic – 25 frost damage and the chance of paralyse for 2 seconds with every hit. This one-handed sword is pretty good as it is when you get it, but when you upgrade it to legendary class, it is easily one of the best weapons in the game, with 100 damage instead of 37 and 30 frost damage with each hit instead of 25.

If you enjoy using blunt weapons in Skyirm, you should also look out for the Wuuthrad, as this is another great weapon in the game and probably the best two-handed axe in the game. It is found during the Companions guild quests, and has the special ability of dealing extreme damage to Elves. The good thing about the Wuuthrad, is that it can be enchanted further, unlike other enchanted weapons.

Have you found these two weapons in Skyrim yet? If so, what are your thoughts on them? Have you found any enchanted weapons that are better than these, we’re not counting daedric weapons here as obviously they are pretty powerful alone and you can customize them yourself to make them even more powerful. We’re talking about unique weapons hidden throughout Skyrim, so let us know what you have found and what abilities they have.

    Ooo I have to go find those :)

      The mace of molag bal (exquisite) is currently at 52 damage.

    The Dawnbreaker you get from one of the Daedric Princes in a certain quest can make you unstoppable in the tombs filled with undead.  In addition to bonus 10 fire damage, any undead killed with the sword has a chance to explode in a powerful blast wich will severly burn, kill, and bane nearby undead. I think the daedric prince is mathal or something like that I know it starts with a M. You have to find a rock looking beacon in the game to activate the quest which I found after doing the companion missions.  I found it in one of the chests after killing a silverhand base, I believe it was the tower one.

      The name is Meridia. Meridia’s Beacon, a white, dodecahedron, thingy. Bring it to her temple, and you need to kill the wizard. Dude’s hard as hell.

      You could just buy it back if you want it that bad. But it will cost you a pretty coin though.

    Blade of Woe (Black Brotherhood) dagger with  health absorb. Red Eagle Sword (location revealed when you read Red Eagle book) 1h sword Fire damage. Mehrune’s Dagger. (Dawnstar Musuem quest, its a reforging of the blade used in the Oblivion crisis) dagger with small chance of instant kill. Staff of Sangune. (drinking contest, a hangover movie parody, found in Windhelm inn.) Summons Dremora for 60 secs. I’m sure ive seen a few more but my games off atm. On a side note from weapons..there are some nice Daedric artifact apparel items I’ve seen. Ring of Namira (+50 stam, Feed on corpses for health buff and regen buff) A named daedric shield (sorry forgot name) Increases magic resistance 20% and creates a ward spell on block that resists 50 magick damage. And any of the Dragon Priest masks are nice. Their all independently colored and have different stats/armor classes. Locations vary, following College of Winterhold will bring you across one for mages.

    • Loce_fea

      the named daedric sheild sounds cool and i wonder if you put the points in restoration will you gain magic from the ward spell it creates?  let me know if you remember the name.

      • Ryntok

        I think spellbreaker shield is what its called I have it but games not on

  • Xda

    Hi, first off thanks everyone for your posts im going to check some of those weapons out tomorrow i cant wait, And for what its worth i have cracked all the expert locks in the the Dwemer museum in markarth, i thought it would be a good idea to leave them cracked for now, im going to go back there when i can afford a few invisibility potions and loot the f*** out of the place LOL! the items that have interested me to do this are. 1 – DWARVEN CENTURION ARROW… i havent learned any archer skills and that arrow was coming up as 20 damage to me… 2 – DWARVEN WARHAMMER…. came up as 43 damage to me, im only a level 9       3 – DWARVEN DAGGER…… 8 damage! ……….. Oh and if you go to this clothes shop just outside of dragons reach in the city  theres decent rings like 15% lock pick boosts 12points on armor rings, necklaces etc, just go and ask to buy in the clothes shop from the woman and at the bottom of her list (hard to notice) cheers. i will keep posting if i find anything worth mentioning most have already been mentioned that i know like the red eagle sword quests.

  • Draconis

    The ebony blade

  • Remix

    Right now im currently using the chillrend and the spell breaker and an ebony bow. with my armor  alone im doing about 100 damage with chillrend with out up grades and if i wanna use the bow i switch gear and do about 120 with out upgrades.

  • MUERTE

    double wielding scimitars(superior)
    very effective, if you do power attack with both weapons at the same time there will be a lot of damage being deliverd 

  • MUERTE

    also i use Mehrunes Razor and the wabbajack

    • Goblinaro

      Mehrunes’ Razor is a beast. If I can’t defeat an opponent with my legendary glass sword of scorching or with Dawnbreaker (just started a new account, no daedric yet), I bet on Mehrunes’ Razor’s 1% insta kill and I usually get it. Such a beast of a dagger.

  • Delance

    after doing some smithing, enchating, and little achlemy i have gotten a blades sword up to 276 damage, duel weilding yeilds some nasty cuts to the enemy.

  • Loce_fea

    So far, after leveling and putting points in enchanting, and
    blacksmithing I have not found a better weapon in game than my two legendary daedric
    swords. One has soul trap and paralyze on it, and the other steals health and
    stam. Other weapons look cool, but these two have been strait out devastating
    to all that I have come across in Skyrim. 
    I love them, and there is nothing funnier than having an army of
    imperials coming at me and one shot them in the head as I run through their
    group.

    What is the best weapon against Draugr and ghosts apart from Dawnbreaker? I only got the Red Eagle Sword and thinking about some kind of enchanted silver weapon?

  • Exiledoom

    my Ebony Warhammer of Storms (Legendary) does 217 right now. Think my Daedric warhammer has 227. My 2h is 83 so that not the best i could have, plus i dont do that potion + enchanting noobtrick to get it with like 700 damage.

      How is using an Elixir that lasts 60 seconds to boost your Enchanting (or Smithing) a “noobtrick”? If anything it is a nerd-trick as it requires a level of understanding to realize what you can mange. Why wouldn’t you make the best of your enchantment? Especially when it is a unique weapon such as, for example, Wuuthrad. Which you can only enchant once.

      To each their own, mate.
