The Nord Hero Greatsword is an improved version of the Ancient Nord Greatsword found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


It is visually similar to the Ancient Nord Greatsword, but is more polished and a lighter color than the Ancient Nord Greatsword. It also has higher base damage, lower weight, and is of greater value.


Like all other Nord Hero Weapons, the Nord Hero Sword can only be crafted at the Skyforge after completing the Companions main questline. It requires the following components:

It can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.


  • Its base damage is on par with the Honed Ancient Nord Greatsword and the Skyforge Steel Greatsword, though it weighs less than either greatsword.
  • It appears in one of the loading screens, the one that informs that a successful power attack will always break through the block of an opponent and cause a stagger.
