Unenchanted Orcish greatswords will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 6, and enchanted greatswords can be found at level 7. These locations include:
- Blacksmiths and general goods merchants.
- Wielded by various characters, or enemies.
- Found as random loot in chests or as a world item throughout Skyrim.
It can be upgraded with an orichalcum ingot at a grindstone, and also benefits from the Orcish Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
