Glass weapons are a type of weapon available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Found as randomized loot, bought, or crafted, they are the fourth most effective classification of weapon available in Skyrim, excluding unique weapons. In the base game, only Ebony and Daedric Weapons are stronger. In The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard, Dragonbone Weapons are the strongest available.
After level 30, unenchanted glass weapons start to appear as randomized loot in chests, on corpses of leveled sword wielders, such as Forsworn Briarhearts, and sold from armor vendors and blacksmiths. Very rarely, glass weapons have appeared on high-leveled Forsworn before level 30 has been reached, or rarely in certain dungeons before level 30 (as early as level 20, in fact). Taking the "Glass Smithing" perk before level 30 can also increase the odds of randomly receiving these weapons as drops. It also is possible to find a bow or dagger at around level 20, but this is extremely rare.
Glass weapons can be smithed at a forge with the Glass Smithing perk which is available with a smithing skill of at least 70. The weapons require refined moonstone and refined malachite to make. Moonstone ore can be mined early, as can the malachite ore, but may not appear in vendors' inventories before level 20.
