Froki's Bow is a unique Long Bow in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It once belonged to Froki, an elderly hunter who is now living in The Rift.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

The bow can be found on top of a barrel at the back of Graywinter Watch, guarded by two trolls. If the Dragonborn attempts to return it to Froki Whetted-Blade, he will respond that his hunting days are behind him and allow the Dragonborn to keep it.

Enchantment[edit | edit source]

Each hit inflicts 10 points of stamina damage to the target.

Smithing[edit | edit source]

Unlike other long bows, which are upgraded with a piece of firewood, Froki's Bow is upgraded with an Iron Ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, though it does not benefit from any Smithing perks. This means that it cannot be upgraded past "Flawless" quality unless one equips apparel and drinks potions with the "Fortify Smithing" effect.
