Chillrend is a unique, leveled glass sword found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Returning from Oblivion, Chillrend is in the possession of the Thieves Guild's leader Mercer Frey. Because the sword is leveled, the magnitude of the enchantments, base strength and value are contingent upon character level. The sword can be obtained as early as level one.

Appearance

Chillrend appears similar to a standard glass sword, but the blade is pale blue instead of green, giving it the appearance of being covered in frost. While drawn, the blade emanates a vapor as if it were experiencing sublimation, and also makes a constant hissing noise, similar to dry ice.

Acquisition

The blade is found inside the tunnels under the Riftweald Manor in Riften during the quest "The Pursuit". Alternatively, it is possible to jump onto the roof of the Temple of Mara by jumping onto the brazer on the left of the door, then by simply jumping onto the roof. If done properly, it is possible to use the shout, Whirlwind Sprint, to reach the balcony of the Riftweald Manor. The door, which has a master-level lock, needs to lockpicked before access to manor can be gained. After fighting past the bandits inside. The entrance to tunnels can be accessed behind the false backing of the wardrobe on the first floor.

Near the end of the tunnels is a small room with a display case that contains the blade. The case, which has an expert-level lock, needs to be lockpicked. Also in this room is the Bust of the Gray Fox, a bowl with various precious gems, and a valuable ring.

Enchantment

Chillrend bears a unique enchantment named "Frostfeed". The enchantment for all versions of the sword is:

Like all weapons that bear a frost damage enchantment, Chillrend is affected by the Augmented Frost perk in the Destruction skill tree. With a level 46+ Chillrend, the first rank raises the frost damage from 30 points to 37. The second rank raises it to 45 points. Due to its unique enchantment, it cannot be disenchanted at an arcane enchanter.

Smithing

Chillrend can be upgraded at a grindstone with a refined malachite ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk. It also benefits from the Glass Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.

Levels

The damage, weight, value as well as the magnitude of the enchantment are based on the Dragonborn's level the first time Riftweald Manor is entered. The best possible version is available at level 46.

Versus Dragonbone

The level 46+ version of Chillrend has the same base damage as a dragonbone sword, excluding enchantment damage. This ties Chillrend with the dragonbone sword as the second strongest one-handed sword available, after Miraak's Sword.

Trivia

  • Typing player.additem 000F8319 1 into the console will let the game's level system randomly choose which version of the weapon to add.
  • If missed the first time around, Chillrend can still be obtained by returning to Riftweald Manor after acquiring the Skeleton Key.
