"Welcome to Warmaiden's. Now don't let the name worry you, we got plenty o' steel for fighting men."
Ulfberth War-Bear

Warmaiden's is a weapons and armor smithy and shop in the Plains District of Whiterun. It can be found near the main city gate, across from the Drunken Huntsman.


Owned by Adrianne Avenicci, the store was named after Adrianne's childhood nickname given to her by her father, due to her obsession with swords as a young girl.

Adrianne's husband, Ulfberth War-Bear, helps with the shop and handles the sales while Adrianne concentrates on blacksmithing at her forge outside.


The layout of the shop is fairly simple. The spacious main trading room is on the ground floor and consists of a counter and several weapon racks displaying various pieces. A large fireplace is situated against the western wall with various tapestries hung above it. A small kitchen is located at the back of the main room with table and three shelves displaying various kitchenware. An open stove glows brightly in the corner with a cooking pot hung nearby.

Upstairs is a small balcony that leads to the bedroom. Inside is a chest, a dresser and two end tables containing generic clutter. A copy of Killing - Before You're Killed lies on one of the end tables and a strongbox and business ledger can be found on the dresser.


Outside the establishment, several amenities involving the Smithing skill are found, including a forge, a workbench, a grindstone, a tanning rack and a smelting furnace.

Notable itemsEdit

The following armor and weapons are on display throughout the shop:





  • Both Adrianne and Ulfberth have their own daily purse, as well as somewhat separate inventories - provided they are not both inside the shop. This can be advantageous if one of them runs out of gold to barter with.
  • Investing in the shop or doing Adrianne's quest allows some of the items inside to be taken off of the shelves without counting as a theft.
  • Gunmar makes a reference to the shop when asked about buying goods in Dawnguard.
  • If Adrianne somehow dies, Ulfberth will state in a voice of mourning that he has had to buy weapons and armor from traveling Khajiit caravans since her passing when asked about his supplies.
  • It is possible to climb atop the roof of the building without hacks or console commands by first jumping on to the smelter.

    • Haha true. 
    • That makes me wonder if Ysoldia even likes me, or if she married me for my riches.
