The Gauldur Blackbow is a leveled unique Ancient Nord bow found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Because the bow is leveled, the magnitude of the enchantments, the base strength and value of the bow are contingent upon character Level. It can be disenchanted at an Arcane Enchanter.


Dropped by Sigdis Gauldurson in Geirmund's Hall during the quest "Forbidden Legend."


The Gauldur Blackbow can be upgraded with a steel ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, and benefits from the Dwarven Smithing perk.


The enchantment for all versions of the bow is:


The damage, weight, value, and the magnitude of the enchantment are based on the character Level upon receiving the bow. The best possible version is available at level 36.
