How to Get the Aegisbane?


Where to find the Aegisbane Location?

Gameplay Trivia

  • While carrying the warhammer in Windhelm, guards might notice and talk about it. They call it "Aegisbane" and say it belongs to the Shatter-Shields. The guard mentions it was stolen by Alain Dufont and Muiri, making it the same stolen warhammer. Unfortunately, there's no way to return the weapon to its rightful owners.
  • Aegisbane is the heirloom of the Shatter-Shields family in Windhelm, it was stolen by Alain Dufont and Muiri. The unique weapon can be obtained by the Dragonborn by defeating Alain Dufont.
  • The word 'Aegis' means 'shield' in Greek mythology, so the name of this weapon translates to "shield bane."
  • Beyond disenchanting the weapon to learn the frost enchantment Aegisbane is not very useful in normal gameplay. The weapon serves more as a plot device.
