The Staff of Magnus is an ancient, extremely powerful staff created and used by [[Magnus]], the God of Magic. The Staff of Magnus is one of the elder artifacts of [[Tamriel]], and it is vastly powerful, capable of absorbing magicka and health. Legend tells that it is the only artifact capable of containing his immense power. In time, the Staff will abandon the mage who wields it before he or she becomes too powerful and upsets the mystical arcane balance it is sworn to protect.

Stendarr's Hammer is a large, impossibly heavy hammer, believed to once be wielded by the [[Stendarr|God of Mercy]] himself. No man could possibly wield the weapon in battle, as it is massive and incredibly heavy, nearly ten times the weight of a normal hammer. Should someone manage wield the hammer, it would greatly decrease the wielder's fatigue and deal impeccable damage to its foes, however, it is incredibly fragile. The hammer appears to be crafted of wood and metal, with a massive head comprised of a large, flat spiked face and a short horned toe. It was last recorded to be seen on display at the [[Museum of Artifacts]] in [[Godsreach]] in the Third Era, during the downfall of the [[Tribunal|False Tribunal]].

Allegedly created and used like its sister, Auriel's Shield, by the great Elvish demi-god, the Bow can turn any arrow into a missile of death and any wielder invulnerable to any lesser attacks.
