It was originally wielded by Ysgramor, leader of the Five Hundred Companions, in his crusade against the native Snow Elves of Skyrim and Solstheim in the Merethic Era. The weapon was later shattered into fragments, several of which were displayed in the Companions mead hall of Jorrvaskr.
The effect is not considered an enchantment so Wuuthrad is affected by the Elemental Fury shout. Additionally it may be enchanted at an Arcane Enchanter to stack with its inherent ability, although the description "Especially deadly to Elves." will remain.
Wuuthrad cannot be improved at a grindstone.
- Concept art for Wuuthrad reveals it bore the name "Elf-Grinder" (see gallery).
- In Sovngarde, Ysgramor can be seen in the Hall of Valor equipped with his legendary axe.
- Wuuthrad is depicted on several banners throughout Jorrvaskr.
- Interestingly, in the middle of the battleaxe blade there's a carved out elf screaming, which is a nod towards the fact that Wuuthrad is meant for killing elves.
- Ysgramor's statue for the first time. Wuuthrad may disappear when placed on
- Wuuthrad may not use Stamina when using a power attack.
- If placed on a weapons rack and later removed, it is possible for Wuuthrad to be marked as a quest item, and no longer be capable of being dropped or put into a chest. However, it is possible to remove Wuuthrad from your inventory by using it on a weapons rack again, though it will only be thrown onto the floor nearby and not placed on the rack.
- If placed on a weapon plaque, Wuuthrad may disappear. Sometimes it is found floating in the air across from the weapon plaque.
- Wuuthrad can increase or decrease base damage randomly when loading a saved game.
- When equipped Wuuthrad may become impossible to swing or attack with it.
