There weren't any issues, ty!
DEvasto  [author] Jul 9 @ 12:05pm 
Aight, good luck and enjoy (if things go well).
Danielson Jul 9 @ 12:03pm 
I'll give it a try for now, and will come back to you
DEvasto  [author] Jul 9 @ 11:28am 
It might. If the Arcane Blacksmith perk is removed utterly and not replaced with something else, then you wouldn't be able to forge the sword. In theory at least, I don't use any smithing overhauls myself so I don't exactly know how they'll mesh. You could give it a shot and put this mod above your smithing mod in the load order and see what happens. Be sure to get back to me on your results in case I might need to make a patch.

So, I'm using a mod that removes arcane blacksmith and changes smithing a bit, will this conflict with the pre-requisites to forge this weapon?

The Black Sword is hardly "normal." While there is an unenchanted version (the "unbalanced" Black Sword), the complete version allows you to rain fire on your opponents, has a chance to instantly kill, can soul trap and is a reusable soul gem, and will replenish your magicka while draining your opponent's life. Now I, personally, don't like to make a sword like this super easy to obtain. If it was something more mundane, I'd treat it as such, but as it's not the case here I tried giving a bit of challenge to the process of making it. Since the initial release I've done my best to make finding Blackrock a little easier, and I MAY adjust it further, but ultimately I'm not going to make it plentiful.

why did you make it so hard to find a black rock its just a normal sword i dont fucking care about the stats i just like the texture
Genjohnwilliam Jun 10 @ 3:18pm 
never mind
Genjohnwilliam Jun 10 @ 3:16pm 
it's not showing up to craft help
archosatrum Jun 2 @ 6:47am 
ok ill keep trying
DEvasto  [author] May 23 @ 11:33pm 
@archosatrum Make sure, too, you let the mod update, since the most recent update (well, if January can be considered recent) adds more potential sources for Blackrock. Dwarven boss chests and Centurions can be a good source of it, and it can (albeit rarely) come out of ore veins as well. Falmer can have it now and then, too.
@archosatrum You gotta look harder. I found 1 Black rock, so they're definitelly around.
archosatrum May 16 @ 7:18pm 
Ive had this mod forever and im over lvl 150 but i cant find any, could you plz tell me like the item code for the black rock or something?

This sword is amazing for mages that use a meelee weapon Due to the Magicka draining enchantment. Only downside is finding the materials to forge it. Though I found 7 pieces in Blackreach (sheer luck I guess) and Im scouring all dwemer ruins for 3 more pieces. Good mod either way. Very nice look to it aswell.
DBswag Apr 3 @ 2:31pm 
Very nice.
Lord Velken Mar 30 @ 7:55pm 
Yeah this is an immense amount of work over something like this honestly I could go to every dwarven and falmer based location in the world and never find a piece of this Blackrock you'd think earning the smithing skill would be sufficient enough challenge to ensure lower level characters won't obtain it... I just liked it for it's appearence.
DEvasto  [author] Mar 29 @ 12:47am 
You need at least one piece of blackrock before it shows up in the forge menu at all, if you have both the Ebony Smithing and Arcane Blacksmith perks, and it'll only show up at the Skyforge. Since it uses a custom material keyword, it'll show up in the Misc category when the conditions are met.
Lord Velken Mar 28 @ 3:51pm 
sooo I don't see it in crafting and yes i'm well beyond capable of forging it and beyond level 18
RustedCutlass717 Mar 22 @ 12:49am 
I have noticed that Falmer Warmongers and Dwarven Centurions are ripe places for Black Rock hunting.
arsenicCatnip Feb 21 @ 8:49pm 
ok tnx
DEvasto  [author] Feb 21 @ 8:41pm 
It's only craftable, but you need 10 blackrock to make it and it's not easy to come by. The Black Sword was straight-up forged in Ultima 7 and that's why it's craftable here.
arsenicCatnip Feb 21 @ 6:30pm 
wereisit ocated? or is it crafteble only?
DEvasto  [author] Jan 6 @ 4:40pm 
I know the blackrock leveling is rather derpy, even after the several adjustments I've made to it. I have an update in the breech, though, that should possibly hopefully maybe make finding the stuff less of a pain in the bum, I'll be getting it out as soon as I can.
aesp51 Jan 6 @ 4:29pm 
could you make it so that there's like 2 or 3 peices available from the companions after you finish the companion quest, i installed his mod at level 25, now im at 51 and i still haven't found a single peice, i even have dawnguard so i encounter falmer and dwarven spiders and shperes more often. i can seem to get any peices, its takiing forever, im at the point where if i don't find any soon, im gonna console command in 100 dwarven enemies at a time until i find some. please help

Retribution reborn :D
King Alpaca™ Dec 2, 2013 @ 3:55pm 
ok i have those both thanks i was looking for it all day XD how stupid of me not thinking of going to the skyforge lol
DEvasto  [author] Dec 1, 2013 @ 2:48pm 
Plus you also need the Ebony smithing perk and the Arcane Blacksmith perk to do so.
DEvasto  [author] Dec 1, 2013 @ 2:46pm 
You have to forge it at the Skyforge, any old forge won't do, and the Unbalanced version will show up under the Misc category. It'll only show up when you have blackrock in your inventory as well.
King Alpaca™ Dec 1, 2013 @ 2:44pm 
which category is it forged in i cant seem to find it anywhere in all categories?
DEvasto  [author] Nov 30, 2013 @ 3:23pm 
The sword can only be made, not found, but in order to do so you need to find 10 pieces of Blackrock. Blackrock can be found rarely on Falmer and more commonly on Dwarven Spiders, and has a chance at showing up on Centurions and in Dwarven boss chests. The leveling will be adjusted some in a future update since at the moment it's fairly rare. Once you get the required amount of blackrock, you use it to forge the unbalanced version, which you then use to forge the complete version.

wear do i find this
DEvasto  [author] Nov 28, 2013 @ 2:17pm 
You should be able to use quotations in the console, unless the key is broken on your keyboard. Alternately you could type help blackrock to get the ID number of blackrock, and then player.additem 10 or more of it so you can forge the sword.
and I can't use quotations
Well it doesn't really show it
DEvasto  [author] Nov 28, 2013 @ 2:11pm 
Best thing to do is type help "black sword" into the console, that'll tell you the ID of both versions of the sword. There's an update coming that does some additional tweaks to the blackrock leveling so it shouldn't be as big a pain to find the stuff.
How do I get the id of it?
Doctor Dumbfuck Nov 26, 2013 @ 7:46pm 
Eating a can of spam is difficult... I think it tastes gross. Great mod, though.
robloxyethan Nov 26, 2013 @ 7:27pm 
cool
DEvasto  [author] Nov 26, 2013 @ 7:01pm 
It should, I run this as well as the Infinity Sword and Silmeri, and they all get along fine.
robloxyethan Nov 26, 2013 @ 6:55pm 
does it work with your other awesome infinty sword-like mods
DEvasto  [author] Sep 29, 2013 @ 4:20pm 
To add an item to your inventory you do player.additem [item id] [quantity]. The help command just shows you the ID number for the sword.
๖ۣۜZeus_112♥ Sep 29, 2013 @ 2:27pm 
ok, I tried putting the help "black sword" and then the nuber I wanted it said unknown error with 'add'
DEvasto  [author] Sep 19, 2013 @ 10:32am 
No problem, mate, glad that you figured out the culprit. :3
semir.skylinegtr Sep 19, 2013 @ 4:03am 
Dneska jsem skoušel podle Vaší rady postupně vypínat jednotlivé mody a zjistil jsem že vypinání hry způsobovaly mody: New Perks a Physical.Děkuji Vám za veškerou Vaši pomoc.
DEvasto  [author] Sep 18, 2013 @ 11:56am 
Well, you can try turning mods off and checking each time to see if the problem clears up after each deactivation, or, you can load a save from before you became a werewolf and check to see if you still get the crash after you become one again. It's possible the problem is "baked" into the save it's occuring in, so loading a previous save might clear the problem. I'd suggest trying that first before doing my first suggestion.
semir.skylinegtr Sep 18, 2013 @ 11:42am 
Udělal jserm vše podle Vašeho návodu čili : vypnul jsem mody na upravu toho stromu s těmi perky u vlkodlaka a taky mody na fyziku a pořád se mi ta hra vypina.Co dalšího mi doporučujete?
DEvasto  [author] Sep 18, 2013 @ 10:44am 
Well, I can safely say my mod isn't at fault for that CTD (crash to desktop) issue you're having. I poked around on the net myself and found a few other people having the same problem, it seems it's caused by a mod conflict or a load order issue. If you have any mods that modify perk trees, disable them and see if that fixes the problem. I've seen some things saying the Physical Adept mod can cause this, so if you have that disable it and see if it stops. Check your load order too and make sure the Dawnguard.esm doesn't have any esp's loading before it, like unofficial patches or things like that, that could wonk things up.
