The Elven Warhammer is a two-handed weapon found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Physical appearanceEdit

As with all Elven weaponry and armor, the motif of the hawk is very prominent. In the case of the Elven warhammer, the large head of the hammer takes the form of a highly stylized hawk's head and wings. The handle displays additional intricate carvings and detail, as does the counterbalance at the opposite end.


Unenchanted Elven warhammers will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 19 and enchanted warhammers can be found at level 20. These locations include:

Fixed locationsEdit

  • One can be found in an expert-level locked display case in Kodlak's room in Jorrvaskr.


An Elven warhammer requires a Smithing level of 30 and the Elven Smithing perk to create. It can be forged at a blacksmith's forge with the following components:

It can be upgraded with a refined moonstone ingot at a grindstone. The Elven Smithing perk doubles the improvement.
