Improved stats for the battleaxe, Wuuthrad.

Grants you the ability to wield Wuuthrad as both a one-handed or two-handed weapon, and allows you to switch between the two at will.

Removes the tempering recipe for Wuuthrad; instead, the battleaxe is already of a Legendary tempering status, and so the tempering recipe would be unnecessary.

Improved stats for the Shield of Ysgramor.

Damage: 25 (equivalent to a standard, un-tempered Daedric Battleaxe)
Speed: 0.7 (standard Battleaxe speed)
Weight: 25 (equivalent to a Glass Battleaxe)
Enchantment: 20% more effective against High Elves, Wood Elves and Dark Elves

Damage: 35 (equivalent to a Legendary Daedric Battleaxe)
Speed: 0.8 (equivalent to a Mace)
Weight: 21 (equivalent to a Steel Battleaxe/Daedric Mace)
Enchantment: 35% more effective against High Elves, Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Falmer and Orcs; 35 points of Atmoran Fury damage (Atmoran Fury ignores Magic Resistance)

Damage: 26 (equivalent to a Legendary Daedric Mace)
Speed: 0.7 (equivalent to a Greatsword)
Weight: 21 (equivalent to Steel Battleaxe/Daedric Mace)
Enchantment: 35% more effective against High Elves, Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Falmer and Orcs; 35 points of Atmoran Fury damage (Atmoran Fury ignores Magic Resistance)

When you have Wuuthrad equipped, you will have access to a Lesser Power called Wield Wuuthrad. Using this power will switch between the one-handed and two-handed versions. You can use this as often as you like to switch between the two versions whenever you like.

Armor Rating: 30 (slightly less than an Ebony Shield) (no tempering recipe available)
Weight: 12
Enchantment: Resist Magic 20%, Fortify Health 20 points

Armor Rating: 36 (equivalent of a Daedric Shield) (tempered with a quicksilver ingot)
Weight: 12
Enchantment: Resist 35% Mer Magic and Physical attacks, grants you the Might of Atmora, increasing your strength (fortify weapon swing speed, increase carrying capacity by 35 points, reduce armor weight, half stamina cost of power attacks)

There are no known bugs associated with this mod.

How do I switch between the one-handed and two-handed versions of Wuuthrad?
When in possession of Wuuthrad, you will have access to a Lesser Power called Wield Wuuthrad. Using this power will change how the axe is wielded, with one hand or two.

I think Wuuthrad’s base damage is overpowered…can this be changed?
I have no plans to alter Wuuthrad’s base damage. Whilst the base damage is admittedly very high, it is equal to tempered weapons that already exist in the game, which in my view removes the possibility that it might be overpowered.

I can still temper Wuuthrad…why is this?
This mod removes the tempering recipe for Wuuthrad, but it is possible that other conflicting mods will re-add the tempering recipe. I recommend you ignore this; tempering Wuuthrad will make it grossly overpowered.

Why can’t I temper Wuuthrad?
I have removed the tempering recipe for Wuuthrad. Switching between the one-handed and two-handed versions of the weapon removes any tempering done. This means that you would have to re-temper Wuuthrad every time you switched between the different equipping modes. As a work-around, Wuuthrad now comes permanently pre-tempered.

I don’t like the way the one-handed version of Wuuthrad looks when equipped and sheathed…is it possible to hide Wuuthrad when unequipped and sheathed?
This, unfortunately, would require an expertise in mesh-making I don’t have. For those who can’t stand having the one-handed Wuuthrad being stored on the player’s belt when unsheathed, I recommend having the two-handed version equipped when unsheathed; you can then switch between the two during combat. Alternatively, there are several mods on the Nexus that equip one-handed weapons on the back. I have not tried this approach personally, but it may work for some.

no problem ill just see if any mods are causing problems because i want to keep this mod. it is really good.

Do'Sdar...someone has made a mod that includes one-handed meshes of every two-handed weapon, including wuuthrad. I asked his permission to use this mesh. I then made a one-handed wuuthrad in this mod....the one-handed and two-handed versions included here are actually two distinct weapons. The Lesser Power just removes your current versions and adds the other

How did you make it so that you can use either 1 or 2 hands. I would like to know for a mod that I'm working on.

Wolfchilde...can't say what's causing that problem, never heard of that issue before...must be a mod clash or something, nothing i can do because I don't know what's causing it...sorry mate

Wuuthrad isnt a one handed weapon for me. I put it on and the shield but one just unequips the other.

Sorry Zim it happen because I have the Ysgramor armor mod and it change the two handed texture. One more thing I don't remember how using this mod I duplicated Wuuthrad in two handed version and one handed. And when you add to favourite the shout and use it disappear from favourite list. So i carry two wuuthrad the one handed and two handed and switch between them lol.
