A Daedric war axe can also be crafted at the Atronach Forge, however to do so requires a sigil stone that can only be obtained via the Conjuration Ritual Spell, which in itself requires a Conjuration skill of 90.
The Atronach Forge requires the following components to forge a Daedric war axe:
- 1 x Sigil Stone
- 1 x Daedra Heart
- 1 x Ebony War Axe
- 1 x Centurion Dynamo Core
- 1 x Black Soul Gem (empty or filled)

- The Daedric war axe also has the same base damage as the Stalhrim war axe but weighs more.
