Zahkrii - Blade of the Dragonborn

In 1 collection by Munday
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. Zahkrii is the one-handed sword of the Dragonborn.

It has the model and most of the stats of the standard dragonbone sword, however it is more powerful and slightly faster. Zahkrii in the dragon language means 'Sword'.

As well as the increased strenght and speed, it also has a special effect. On critial hits, it will deal double damage, making this blade very deadly in the hands of a skilled swordsman.

Perfect for slicing up enemies, just as a Dragonborn should!


Base Damage: 20 (Compared to 15 of Dragonbone Sword)

Weight: 19

Speed: 1.1 (Compared to 1.0 of Dragonbone Sword)

Value: 2000 (Compared to 1500 of Dragonbone Sword)

Special Effect: Double damage on critical hits.


- Requires Dawnguard.

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

- Its special effect isn't an enchantment. It will never run out and you can't disenchant it.

- 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.

- For everyone worried about confliction with other mods in this series, the sword is also found in an urn at the top of the mountian. This means there will be no conflictions between this mod and Qahnaarin or any other weapon.

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

- 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.''

"Only accessible after learning the clear skies shout" not true actually, I once spent 4 hours climbing around that barrier and made it to the top of the throat of the world before even seeing the greybeards.

Did you name your weapons after random words of the Dragon Language? Not saying I think its stupid but, Why calling a War Axe ''Guardian''? Its like naming your cat ''Doggy''
