Windshear is a unique Scimitar found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Although its appearance is identical to the Scimitar, the enchantment is one of a kind and cannot be disenchanted.

AcquisitionEdit

This sword can be obtained during the Dark Brotherhood quest "Hail Sithis!," on a ship called The Katariah; this ship can only be accessed during or after the quest.

Proceed onto the main deck of the boat. Follow the stairs that lead to the bow (the front of the ship). Here a long wooden beam protruding from the bow (Bowsprit) is located. Carefully walk up the beam to the top where Windshear will be visible, wedged into the wood.

EnchantmentEdit

The enchantment of Windshear is described as "Bash attacks made with this weapon have a chance of knocking enemies down". In combat, this translates to block-bashing having a 30% chance to paralyze an enemy for 0.1 seconds. Block-bashing is only possible when the off-hand is unarmed.

Additionally, Windshear inflicts a powerful stagger effect when used regularly in combat. This effect is a more powerful than the aforementioned enchantment; rather than chance, every attack staggers any enemy 100% of the time.

SmithingEdit

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

UsefulnessEdit

  • The stagger effect of Windshear is useful in defeating almost any enemy, as repeated strikes completely inhibits them from attacking or retreating.

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Windshear. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  ,  PS3  ,  PC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  PC   360   PS3  The weapon may spawn under the forward mast, hovering in mid air making the weapon difficult if not impossible to acquire normally. One can, however, simply shoot this down using an arrow or a destruction spell, and retrieve it from the water below.
  •  PC   360   PS3  This weapon also seems to get "stuck" in your hand when unequipped. This can be fixed by unequipping and reequipping any gloves/gauntlets.
  •  PC   360   PS3  The weapon may spawn normally, but then fall into the water below.
