The Gauldur Blackbow

The Gauldur Blackbow is a special ancient Nord bow found at Geirmund's Hall in the possession of Sigdis Gauldurson. The weapon's enchantment drains magicka from whoever is hit by one of its arrows for one second. Tempering the Gauldur Blackbow requires one steel ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk. As is customary for honed draugr weapons, the benefits of tempering are doubled if you have acquired the Dwarven Smithing perk.

  • It appears from testing that the level of the Blackbow is set either when you read the book to gain the quest or when you get near enough to the dungeon that the entrance "spawns". This doesn't mean actually finding the entrance, just getting close enough that the game loads the dungeon entrance cell. If you want a high level item not only do you have to avoid reading the book but also avoid the geographic areas of the dungeons themselves.
