Horksbane is a unique steel mace found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.



Horksbane is especially effective against horkers, dealing an extra 20 points of damage to them. This weapon may not be disenchanted, but new enchantments can be added to the weapon.


Horksbane can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot, and benefits from the steel smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.


  • Horksbane respawns next to Saden's body after some time.
  • Horksbane is a reference to Trollsbane.
  • Horksbane's unique enchantment was caused by Saden's extreme hatred of the horkers flowing into his weapon when he witnessed them killing his friends.[1]
