5 best unique swords to start the game

Each Dragonborn needs a good weapon, powerful and unique. Here are 5 great swords in Skyrim that you can get at the start of the game.

Skyrim

Swords are the most common type of weapon found anywhere on the Elder Scrolls. Since the days of The Elder Scrolls: Arena, players have been able to use several unique swords. Skyrim is no different, with over 30 named one-handed swords and two-handed swords in the game.

By pumping the blacksmith skill, the player can create a weapon that is unique in its power. However, this requires a lot of time and septims, which is not always possible in the early stages of the game. But in Skyrim there are many unique swords that can be cast. They will be excellent comrades in arms for any Dragonborn, until he forges and enchants himself with a suitable blade.



Sword Slayer

The weapon of the “Soul Separator” series is ethereal, it weighs almost nothing and has a unique effect. In the case of the sword from this ghostly set, he absorbs 15 stamina per attack… This is a good choice for the early game.

  • Base damage is 11.
  • It is impossible to improve.
  • It is important not to confuse it with the Ghost Blade. They have the same appearance.
  • You can only get it in the Labyrinthian.

Bolar Blade

Bolar Blade

Bolar’s blade is a sword that deals 25 points of stamina damage and forces enemies up to level 12 to flee on impact… Escaping targets are easy to finish off as they rarely respond, but the player will need to get this weapon as early as possible… This is the only way to squeeze the maximum benefit out of it.

  • Base damage – 11.
  • Can be upgraded with a Mercury Ore Ingot.
  • The sword has a unique enchantment that cannot be removed and studied.

Edouge

    • Can be upgraded with steel ingot.
    • The best choice for those who fight with two one-handed weapons, because it comes with the legendary Okin ax.

Nightingale Blade

Nightingale Blade

The nightingale blade is a reliable weapon that absorbs up to 25 units of health and stamina per hit… This weapon is obtained much later than the rest of the swords in the top, but it is still better to use it in the early stages of the game. The maximum level of a nightingale blade is 46. It is impossible to pump it higher due to a bug. Therefore, at high levels of the game, it becomes useless.

  • Base damage is 10-14.
  • Can be upgraded with ebony ingot.
  • Weapon damage (main and additional) depends entirely on the character’s level.
