Blade of the Rift is a semi-unique weapon in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This weapon is one of several Thane weapons awarded after becoming Thane of the respective hold, in this case the Rift.

PropertiesEdit

All of the weapons properties except the name are randomly generated.

AttributesEdit

AppearanceEdit

The weapons appearance matches that of a generic weapon of the same type and material. The weapon will also bear a colored glow and pattern appropriate to the enchantment.

AcquisitionEdit

The Blade of the Rift is awarded by the Jarl of Riften, Laila Law-Giver (or Maven Black-Briar) after becoming an honorary Thane. To become Thane the following conditions must be met:

Laila Law-GiverEdit

Maven Black-BriarEdit

  • Purchasing Honeyside.
  • Assisting the people of the Rift.

SmithingEdit

This weapon is semi-unique and may not be crafted, however an identical version can be crafted with the generic material and a matching enchantment applied. The weapon may also be titled with the same name during enchanting.

The upgrade material is dependent on the material that the weapon was generated with.

TriviaEdit

  • This weapon serves as the badge of office for the Thane of the Rift.
  • If a reload is performed and the weapon is retrieved again, it will be the same. This means that there are unknown factors determining what weapon is generated. At higher levels iron is surprisingly the material of the weapon.

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Blade of the Rift. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  PC   360   PS3   Sometimes the weapon granted is not a blade but a mace. However it's (possibly) still called the "Blade" of the Rift.
    •  PC   360   PS3   The above does not usually apply to this currently as there is a bug associated with the name of the weapon.
  •  PC   360   PS3   This weapon may generate as a dagger. This may be caused by the above bug. Not confirmed as a bug.
  •  PC   360   PS3   More often than not, when this weapon is rewarded it will be a random enchanted weapon, and it will not be named Blade of the Rift. The code for the Blade of the Rift is in the game, but it instead just allocates a weapon with a name that suits it's enchantment.
    •  PC   360   PS3   This bug usually occurs more with Laila than with Maven
    •  PC   360   PS3   Occasionally when receiving this weapon, it will actually be named Blade of the Rift like it was meant to. This is very rare though.
