The following alchemy ingredients can be used to create a potion of Fortify One-handed:


The following items use this effect. You can learn how to enchant custom items with Fortify One-handed if you find one of the following items and disenchant it:

  • All varieties of Bracers/Gauntlets, Necklaces, and Rings of Wielding
    • Includes the enchantments of Minor Wielding, of Major Wielding, of Extreme Wielding, of Eminent Wielding, and of Peerless Wielding.

Artifacts and unique items that use the effect but cannot be disenchanted include:

Linwe's Gloves can technically be disenchanted, allowing you to learn a special version of Fortify One-handed named Shadowstrike. However, Shadowstrike cannot be used to enchant any items because no enchanting slots are enabled for the effect.

A unique version of Ebony Spell Knight ArmorCC with Fortify One-handed is a reward for completing Crypt of the HeartCC and choosing the corrupted heart ending. It is possible to disenchant it, but not advisable to do so as the effect cannot normally be applied to body apparel.



  • The name of the enchanting version of this effect is actually "Fortify One-Handed" instead of "Fortify One-handed".
  • The Call to Arms spell includes a secondary Fortify One-handed effect, which directly increases the One-handed skill of allies.


  • Fortify One-handed does not affect the damage of daggers.
