Game/DLC Dawnguard

The Dawnguard Warhammer is an incredably rare and unique Warhammer found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Its capable of spam casting rune spells for 0 magika cost that deal more damage than any weapon in the game.

Weapon Enchantment

  • The Dawnguard Warhammer has a special ability that places a fire rune on the ground upon bashing, exploding for 50 points of fire damage when enemies approach.
  • This unique effect has unlimited uses and only requires stamina to be used. It is possible to consume Vegetable Soup to get unlimited power attacks and rune placements.
  • Using the fire rune ability improves your Destruction magic skill. Since it does not use up your magick and the fire rune spell typically costs a lot of magicka, you will find that using the rune hammer is a good way to level up your destruction skill.
  • The Rune Master Perk in the Destruction Skill tree will allow you to place fire runes up to five times further away using the hammer.
  • The warhammer's rune distance is further increased with Ahzidal's Helm of Vision turning it into both a ranged and melee weapon.
  • The Become Ethereal Shout can be used to become invincible while still placing Runes on the ground around you to deal damage.

How to Get the Dawnguard Warhammer?

Where to find the Dawnguard Warhammer Location?

You can find the Dawnguard Warhammer in a random radiant location. It can be found during during the Dawnguard side quest "Lost Relic."

You can start the "Lost Relic" Quest at Fort Dawnguard by speaking to Florentius Baenius, he will task you with retreating an ancient artifact from a randomly chosen location. Since the "Lost Relic" quest is one of several possible radiant side quests which can be randomly assigned to the player, you may need to go through several other side quests before you are given the "Lost Relic" Side quest.

The Lost Relic quest rewards 3 possible unique item reawrds, the: Dawnguard Rune Shield, Dawnguard Rune Hammer or the Dawnguard Rune Axe. The Lost Relic quest can be repeated until you get all the unique items.
