Crafting Dwarven Weapons in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

This crafting guide will cover the various Dwarven Weapons that can be crafted using the Smithing skill in the Elder Scrolls v: Skyrim. Within you will find a list of relevant information for each weapon that can be crafted including weight, base damage, gold value, ingredients required and other pertinent information for outfitting your character with crafted Dwarven Weapons. Finally, you can also find a value per pound ratio for each item, cost to craft and the profit margin that results, keeping in mind your actual profit will vary depending on your speech skill.

All crafted Dwarven Weapons, including Dwarven Armor, require that you have Dwarven Ingots in order to create them. These ingots are aquired through breaking down various Dwemer metals that can be found in the various Dwemer ruins scattered throughout Skyrim.

In addition to having these ingots, you will need to unlock the Dwarven Smithing perk which requires at least 30 levels in the Smithing skill along with having already unlocked Steel Smithing.

Finally, all of these weapons take a single Dwarven Ingot to upgrade their quality using a Grindstone.

The Dwarven War Axe consists of mostly straight lined portions with the exception of the curved blade, keeping to the archaic Dwemer look and marks of wear and use scattered about, even when freshly crafted oddly enough. The handle consists of a dark base with raised golden portions with small intricate patterns detailed all the way up, crosshatches in the center and the looping rectangular designs at the top and bottom.

I love Dwarven weapons, the golden glow looks fantastic as its slashing into enemies. I've enchanted a Dwarven sword with health and stamina absorption, and called it simply Death Of A Dragon.
