A Nordic War Axe is a weapon obtainable in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn. Its base damage is on par with that of Elven, Skyforge steel and Nord Hero war axes. Frea is seen dual-wielding one along with a Stalhrim War Axe in the quest The Temple of Miraak.
Nordic War Axes can be improved with a Quicksilver Ingot at a grindstone. They benefit from the Advanced Armors Perk, which doubles the improvement.
Unenchanted Nordic War Axes will begin to appear at level 25, and enchanted versions can be found at level 26.
Two Nordic War Axes, as well as other Nordic weapons, can be obtained at any level by traveling to Solstheim, locating the Thirsk Mead Hall, and completing the quest "The Chief of Thirsk Hall." The weapons can be looted from the bodies of the former residents of the hall.
