Qahnaarin - Sword of the Dragonborn

Zun Se Faal Dovahkiin - Weapons of the Dragonborn
9 items
Qahnaarin is a sword I made very much for my own personal use, however I thought I would share it here if anyone should want it also.

It has the model and most of the stats of the standard dragonbone greatsword, however it is more powerful and slightly faster.

Perfect for cutting down hoardes of enemies, just as a Dragonborn should!


Base Damage: 30 (Compared to 27 of Dragonbone Greatsword)

Weight: 27

Speed: 1 (Same as a normal 1-handed sword) (Compared to 0.7 of Dragonbone Greatsword)

Value: 3000 (Compared to 2725 of Dragonbone Greatsword)

Reach: 1.3


- Requires Dawnguard.

- Found on the very top of the throat of the world. Only accesible after learning the 'Clear Skies' shout.

- When you get the top of the mountian, get the sword before the notched pickaxe. If you pick up the pickaxe first the sword might fall off the mountian due to a quirk in the vanilla system.

- Im not changing this mod in any way, usually I incorperate feedback with my mods but not this one. Its a take it or leave it.

- Don't complain about it being overpowered. Keep in mind that it is meant to bethe most powerful sword as it is the Dragonborn's special sword.

- The increase in speed is not overly noticeable and does not look out of place.

- The sword is also now found in an urn as are the other weapons.

- As always, enjoy! :)

Additional Lore by Mikhael IceFang and jasonjwillis:

''Legend has it that when Alduin, First son of Akatosh, was killed, his bones were scattered across Tamriel. Millenia later they were found by the Blades and were taken to the greatest blacksmiths of Tamriel, those who could take the blood of the gods, Ebony, to legendary heights. And so, guided by the prophecies of the Elder Scrolls, they forged the bones of the World Eater and the blood of the gods into eight penultimate weapons. Qahnaarin - Sword of the Dragonborn and Zahkrii - Blade of the Dragonborn, they carved from the leg bones of the worldeater. Volaan - Bow of the Dragonborn, they made from the smallest of Blackwing’s ribs. Kinzon - The Daggers of the Dragonborn, were expertly wrought from two vertebrae. Mulaag - The Hammer of the Dragonborn, was fashioned from the thighbone. Hahkun - Battleaxe of the Dragonborn and Vahlok - Waraxes of the Dragonborn, they made of fangs from his great maw and Krongrah - Mace of the Dragonborn they fashioned from each of the mammoth dragon’s back claws.After the creation of these weapons, the leader of the blades with a Moth priest, sacrificed his sight to use the Dragon Elder Scroll to cast the weapon through the time wound to the peak of the throat of the world at the dawn of Tamriel.''

Uncomfortable Bear May 17 @ 9:12am 
well, thats the disadvantage of being poor, but the advantage is food stamps.
