Goldbrand is a unique Daedric katana featured in several The Elder Scrolls games.


This magical sword is almost a complete mystery. Thieves tell tales about its golden make and how it was actually forged by ancient dragons of the North. Their tales claim that it was given to a great knight who was sworn to protect the dragons. The Sword lends its wielder the ability to do fire damage on an enemy.

Using the Umbra sword in conjunction with this weapon can create a deadly combo as you can use the Umbra sword to recharge Goldbrand.
