Shadowrend is a weapon retrieved during the main quest. It is one of the most powerful weapons in the game.

It can either be a claymore or a battleaxe. If your Blunt skill is greater than your Blade skill at the point when you enter the Grove of Reflection, you will receive the battleaxe. If your Blade skill is greater, or if the two skills have the same value, you will receive the claymore.

It is leveled to the character's level at the time it is received. It also has a leveled enchantment that casts Weakness to Magic and Damage Health on strike. The Damage Health effect is leveled with the weapon but the Weakness to Magic remains the same for every level with a magnitude of 15%.

How to Get ItEdit

Shadowrend is obtained in the quest Symbols of Office. When you reach the Grove of Reflection, you will have to battle with a shadow version of yourself. You must retrieve the blade/axe after defeating your clone, at which point the weapon is normally dropped on the ground. However, the clone drops Shadowrend only if it is equipped and unsheathed (see quest bugs for details). It helps to save before you fight your clone, in case it does not drop Shadowrend.

The Skull of Corruption glitch in combination with the Staff of Worms may also be used to retrieve it.
