Ahzidal's Boots of Waterwalking

Ahzidal's Boots of Waterwalking are a pair of boots that are part of a set of armor created by the legendary Nord enchanter Ahzidal. They can be found sitting on a plinth in Kolbjorn Barrow, after the first phase of digging is completed during Unearthed. These boots are identical in appearance to ancient Nord boots, but provide four more points of protection and weigh four points more. Their enchantment gives you the ability to walk on water.

In addition, if you wear these boots along with three other relics of Ahzidal, you will receive a buff called Ahzidal's Genius that increases your Enchanting skill by ten points. Ahzidal's boots can be tempered with a steel ingot, with the Advanced Armors perk doubling improvement.

Related QuestsEdit


  • Though six relics of Ahzidal exist, you will only receive Ahzidal's Genius if exactly four relics are equipped. Equipping more will deactivate the effect.
    • Ahzidal's Genius can be increased to +12 if the Dragonborn has Necromage and is a Vampire. To do so requires transforming into Vampire Lord form and reverting after gaining Necromage. It appears to be reset by the transformation, but not by simply unequipping and re-equipping the relevant items. Ahzidal's Genius is unaffected by the Bloodworm Helm.
  • It is unsure if this is tied to the waterwalking effect, or the boots, but when equipped jumping on water is 1.5-2 times higher than normal, and continuous use spells can be continued while jumping.
  • When playing with the Aniversary Edition in Survival Mode, they allow you to cross arctic water without suffering the increase in cold penalties from immersion in it.
  • Wearing these boots will not negate the damage from the water in Apocrypha, nor the lava inside the Aetherium Forge.
  • While wearing these boots, you can hand catch fish swimming near the surface and attack Slaughterfish from above.
