This sword can be almost exclusively found on members of the Silver Hand, who are frequently encountered on quests for the Companions. The Silver Hand strongholds can be found at the following locations:
The enchantment of the Silver Greatword is described as "Especially effective against the Undead". This translates to an additional 20 points of damage per hit to undead such as Draugr, Skeletons, Dragon Priests, Vampires, and re-animated corpses. Despite the description, Werewolves are affected too, given their innate weakness to silver.
The Silver Greatword may be enchanted at an Arcane Enchanter in addition to its inherent enchantment, however the original enchantment description will remain. Fire damage makes for an especially useful additional enchantment, as undead creatures are also highly susceptible to flame damage.
- When placed in a Weapon Rack, it is possible for the greatsword to glitch out of its designated position, falling onto the floor and rendering the rack unusable.
- If the player has more than one Silver Greatsword in their inventory when they go to jail, aditional swords will be added upon their release from jail. This also happens with Silver Swords.
