The Drainheart Sword is a unique ancient Nord sword found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

AcquisitionEdit

The Drainheart Sword is one of four unique ghost weapons wielded by spectral variants of draugr. These can be encountered only in Labyrinthian during "The Staff of Magnus" quest, with the exception of the Ghostblade, found during "A Love Beyond Death."

The other three weapons are the Drainblood Battleaxe, Drainspell Bow and Ghostblade.

EnchantmentEdit

It absorbs 15 points of stamina with each hit. As with most ghost weapons, it cannot be improved at a grindstone. It also has a limited number of charges unlike the Ghostblade, but can be disenchanted to gain the Absorb Stamina enchantment.

UsefulnessEdit

While not spectacular in the damage department, the Drainheart Sword could find use for a 'spellsword' character. It has the same base damage as the elven sword but with a weight of only three, compared to the Elven sword's weight of 13. The enchantment finds additional use here as 'spellswords' can focus their attention on magicka and health instead of stamina while leveling up, using the limitless enchantment to replenish their stamina as it is used in battle.

  •  PC   360   PS3  At an Arcane Enchanter, you will be able to "disenchant" this sword even if you already have the "Absorb Stamina" enchantment unlocked, thus giving you two "Absorb Stamina" enchantments in your list of available enchantments. Both "Absorb Stamina" enchantments can be stacked upon enchanting a new weapon.

    • Thw wiki says the ghost weapons have unlimited charges.  I don't know if it's a bug or what but in my game they have charges just like ev...
    • I gave one to Lydia once and she managed to empty the charge (stupid things only have the charge for one and a bit hits anyway).

    • Re-did the mage's storyline, it does deplete. Tested with 3 swords. This is what happens when people mix up weapons, e.g. Ghostblade and Drainheart.
    • Yes, it's just an enchantment. I disenchanted mine. It has a finite amount of charges, it isn't a bug.
