"Legend has it that a nobleman sank his fortune into creating a blade of supreme power. Two smiths on opposite ends of Tamriel created each half of the blade, unaware of the other, with the hope that no one man, save the owner of the blade, would know its true power. Unfortunately, the smiths were not given enough instruction, and created halves with enchantments that completely negated each other."
Torasa Aram, Curator of the Museum of Artifacts[src]

BiPolar Blade is a unique two-handed weapon in The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal.

Both effects are cast on strike, 30 points for 15 seconds on touch:

Despite Torasa's assertion, the enchantment does have an effect upon adversaries, albeit a potentially negative one. The calm effect subdues the victim sufficiently to disengage combat, making any follow-up attack by the Nerevarine considered a crime if witnessed, even if the enemy landed the initial blow.


The BiPolar Blade is a possible reward during of the quest "The MatchMaker."


The Museum TREdit

The BiPolar Blade is one of the artifacts the Nerevarine may sell to Torasa Aram at the Museum of Artifacts in Mournhold during this quest. Aram offers 13500GoldIcon for the blade.


  • If this item is donated (or sold for 20,000 GoldIcon) to the Museum of Artifacts in Godsreach, curator Torasa Aram states, "Very well. It will take up a place in our collection. Likely a place towards the back."
  • If the Nerevarine discusses donating the blade to the museum, but does not agree to do so, Torasa Aram states, "You're quite sure, are you? Very well. Somehow, I think we will get by without it."
  • The name of the blade itself is an apparent reference to the Bipolar disorder, of which the primary and most significant symptom is severe and rapid mood swings.
