Volaan - Bow of the Dragonborn

Zun Se Faal Dovahkiin - Weapons of the Dragonborn
9 items
After the sucess of my Qahnaarin - Sword of the Dragonborn mod I was inspired to start a series of similar weapons. Volaan is the Bow of the Dragonborn.

It has the model and most of the stats of the standard dragonbone bow, however it is more powerful and much faster. Volaan in the dragon language represents 'quickly', the main feature of the bow.

Due to the name, the main feature of this bow is its speed. It can fire at TWICE the rate of a regular bow. Keep in mind that this does stack with the archery perk which also inccreases speed. If you are thinking that it might be too fast and that it might look strange. it actually doesn't! I thought it might too and even with the perk it still looks quite natural whilst giving you a great boost in speed.

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


Base Damage: 30 (Compared to 20 of Dragonbone Bow)

Weight: 20

Speed: 1.5 (2x as fast as a regular bow) (Compared to 0.75 of Dragonbone Bow)

Value: 3000 (Compared to 2725 of Dragonbone Bow)


- 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 bow before the notched pickaxe. If you pick up the pickaxe first the bow might fall off the mountian due to a quirk in the vanilla system.

- For everyone worried about confliction with oter mods in this series, the bow is now found in an urn at the top of the mountian. This means there will be no conflictions between this mod and Qahnaarin.

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

- The increase in speed is actually not as overpowered as I thought it might be. It does not look oddly fast, it still looks natural whilst giving you a much higher firing rate.

- 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.''

Bows can't be.... stick inside a rock, mate (author)!

They are usually inside chests. So, I believe, you may CHANGE that (placed the bow ...inside the rock) and put a nice shielded chest, to be open only with expert lockpick skills or with "Dovahkiin" skills)...

I have a suggestion how about a crossbow in the style of this series of dragon bone weapons

Any way you can make like a leather armor set for the Dragonborn, something the dragonborb would wear if he was a bowman? I think its a stretch to have the dragnborn use a bow and also wear the huge and heavy bone armor

Because jet fuel can't melt dragon bones.

Why does this weapon need DLC?
