The weapon's innate enchantment deals 10 points of additional damage to vampires. This weapon can be also be successfully enchanted, however the enchantment will not appear in the menu. The weapon's description will always read, "Does additional damage to Vampires" however after it is enchanted the weapon will demonstrate the appropriate color change and unsheathing sound when you ready the weapon.

By enchanting this weapon using the "Extra Effect" perk, one may wield a Dawnguard War Axe with a total of 3 enchantments. This can be extended to 4 if the Fiery Soul Trap or the enchantment from the Notched Pickaxe is used. If both are used, the war axe can have 5 enchantments.

This weapon cannot be disenchanted to learn its effect.


All pieces can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a workbench and also benefit from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
