Shimmerstrike is the enchanted dagger of a Wood Elf combatant from the Yellow Team in the Imperial City Arena. He is the first opponent to be faced after being promoted to the rank of Myrmidon.


  • Looting fallen combatants is strictly against the Battle Rules of the Arena. Therefore, capturing Shimmerstrike is not possible without the use of console commands.
