Ebony Weapons are a class of weapons in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Unlike their angular, gold-laden counterparts found in Cyrodiil during the Oblivion Crisis, the Ebony weapons found in Skyrim during the 4th era have a curved, flowing appearance and swap the gaudy, gold detailing for more subtle engravings. They are often viewed as the second best type of smithable weapon on the game, until Dawnguard where they slipped into third. Despite this, they still offer very good use and high attributes. They can be upgraded into Daedric Weapons at the Atronach Forge.


These weapons can be crafted with a Smithing level of 80 with the Ebony Smithing perk. Ebony swords and war axes can be found on Draugr Deathlords at higher levels. Ebony weapons can be found as random loot as early as level 21.

The Draugr Deathlords and more powerful draugr in Lost Valkygg, Valthume and the Temple of Miraak seem to always contain Ebony Weapons regardless of level.

Rarely, at higher levels, Bandit Chiefs found during random encounters may carry Ebony Weapons.
