Warmaiden's is a weapons and armor smithy and shop in the Plains District of Whiterun. It can be found near the main city gate, across from the Drunken Huntsman.

Background[edit | edit source]

Owned by Adrianne Avenicci, the store was named after Adrianne's childhood nickname given to her by her father, due to her obsession with swords as a young girl.

Adrianne's husband, Ulfberth War-Bear, helps with the shop and handles the sales while Adrianne concentrates on blacksmithing at her forge outside.

Interior[edit | edit source]

The layout of the shop is fairly simple. The spacious main trading room is on the ground floor and consists of a counter and several weapon racks displaying various pieces. A large fireplace is situated against the western wall with various tapestries hung above it. A small kitchen is located at the back of the main room with a table and three shelves displaying various kitchenware. An open stove glows brightly in the corner with a cooking pot hung nearby.

Upstairs is a small balcony that leads to the bedroom. Inside is a chest, a dresser and two end tables containing generic clutter. A copy of Killing - Before You're Killed lies on one of the end tables and a strongbox and business ledger can be found on the dresser.

Exterior[edit | edit source]

Outside the establishment, several amenities involving the Smithing skill are found, including a forge, a workbench, a grindstone, a tanning rack and a smelting furnace.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Both Adrianne and Ulfberth have their own daily purse, as well as somewhat separate inventories - provided they are not both inside the shop. This can be advantageous if one of them runs out of gold to barter with.
  • Investing in the shop or doing Adrianne's quest allows some of the items inside to be taken off of the shelves without counting as a theft.
  • Gunmar makes a reference to the shop when asked about buying goods in Dawnguard.
  • If Adrianne somehow dies, Ulfberth will state in a voice of mourning that he has had to buy weapons and armor from traveling Khajiit caravans since her passing when asked about his supplies.
  • It is possible to climb atop the roof of the building without hacks or console commands by first jumping on to the smelter.
