- Main article: Nordic Weapons (Dragonborn)
Nordic Maces can be improved with a quicksilver ingot at a grindstone. They benefit from the Advanced Armors Perk, which doubles the improvement.
Unenchanted Nordic Maces will begin to appear at level 25, and enchanted versions can be found at level 26.
A Nordic Mace (as well as two Nordic War Axes, a Nordic Warhammer, and a Nordic Sword) can be obtained at any level (no matter how low) by traveling from Windhelm to Solstheim, locating Thirsk Mead Hall, and accepting/completing the quest The Chief of Thirsk Hall (the final battle against the Nords doesn't even require any necessary effort on the Dragonborn's part).
