"Ah, Aegisbane. Sigil of Clan Shatter-Shield. But didn't that get stolen awhile back?"
Windhelm Guard[src]

Aegisbane is a unique Iron Warhammer that can be found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


It can be obtained in the ruins of Raldbthar by defeating Alain Dufont.

Due to Alain's previous connections to the Shatter-Shields of Windhelm as well as the radiant conversations regarding the fact that their family warhammer has been stolen, it is assumed that this is the Shatter-Shields' aforementioned missing hammer.


Aegisbane can be upgraded with an Iron Ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk at a grindstone; however, it does not benefit from any Smithing perks.


  • When wielding the warhammer in Windhelm, guards may notice it and comment on it. The comment names the weapon as "Aegisbane" and refers to it as the heirloom of the Shatter-Shields. The guard concludes the comment by stating that the last time it was heard of, it was stolen by Alain Dufont and Muiri. This means that this is in fact the stolen warhammer. There is no known way to return the weapon to its owners.
  • The name of the warhammer may be a reference to the Shatter-Shields' name, as "aegis" is Greek for "shield", and so it implies that it destroys shields.
  • Aegisbane looks completely identical to a normal Iron Warhammer, the only difference being its name and Frost Enchantment.
  • Due to the Nordic influences of Skyrim and the sailing nature of Windhelm, it is also likely that the name is a reference to the Nordic god Ægir which, according to the poetic Edda, was the god of the sea, implying that the weapon destroys gods.
