Main article: Ancient Nord Weapons

The Ancient Nord Greatsword is a two-handed weapon in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The ancient Nord greatsword is wielded by most draugr and skeletons, usually within ancient Nordic tombs and burial grounds.



The ancient Nord greatsword can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement. Upon completion of "Glory of the Dead," a Nord hero greatsword can be crafted at the Skyforge.
