Mod Details:

Wuuthrad and the Shield of Ysgramor are a set of Artifacts belonging to the Atmoran King, Ysgramor, one of the greatest Nord heroes in history who drove the elves out of Skyrim, claiming it for mankind. Furthermore, the pair are both the main rewards for the Companions questline, and so by rights they should be, in my humble opinion, the best battleaxe and shield in the game. They are not. This, I believe, is a problem.

Yet another problem is the fact that you cannot use the two Artifacts together. This mod aims to fix both of these problems by make Wuuthrad and the Shield of Ysgramor one of the most powerful sets of equipment in the game.

To those who will inevitably think this mod is overpowered, I apologize. To those who agree with me that this level of strength in these infamous pieces of equipment is justified (being as they are only slightly better than daedric weapons), I hope you enjoy this mod!

Butch the Mafia leader….as in you want to find Wuuthrad and the Shield of Ysgramor? Both are rewards for completing the Companions quest line….Wuuthrad is given to you, and the Shield is locoed in Ysgramor's Tomb. I'd recommend looking up the details on a guide website like elder scrolls.wikia.com or uesp.net

Is this Steam exclusive or is there a version on nexus?

Too strong,

that's what TES5Edit showed, and because they both affect the same item. Trust me it is that mod, there isnt anything else that affects Wuuthrad.

altlegomaster...I'm struggling to see then how the two mods would conflic...what makes you think that the upgradable weapons mod is the cause of the incompatibility?
altlegomaster Jun 19 @ 10:00pm 
yeah it allows certain unique weapons to be tempered liked regular weapons. And yes the effects of this mod do not exist when that mod is used. However, not that i have this mod i dont really need to temper Wuuthrad any more now do i:p
