The Nord Hero Greatsword is an improved version of the Ancient Nord Greatsword found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Physical appearance[edit | edit source]

It is visually similar to the Ancient Nord Greatsword, but is more polished and a lighter color than the Ancient Nord Greatsword. It also has higher base damage, lower weight, and is of greater value.

Smithing[edit | edit source]

Like all other Nord Hero Weapons, the Nord Hero Sword can only be crafted at the Skyforge after completing the Companions main questline. It requires the following components:

It can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its base damage is on par with the Honed Ancient Nord Greatsword and the Skyforge Steel Greatsword, though it weighs less than either greatsword.
  • It appears in one of the loading screens, the one that informs that a successful power attack will always break through the block of an opponent and cause a stagger.
