BiPolar Blade

Legend has it that a nobleman sank his fortune into creating a blade of supreme power. Two smiths on opposite ends of Tamriel created each half of the blade, unaware of the other, with the hope that no one man, save the owner of the blade, would know its true power. Unfortunately, the smiths were not given enough instruction, and created halves with enchantments that completely negated each other. -- Torasa Aram, Museum of Artifacts

The BiPolar Blade is an interesting blade obtained only through a miscellaneous quest. See The MatchMaker quest for more information. Although the in-game description says otherwise the two enchantments don't exactly cancel each other out. A person struck with this weapon will not attack you (because of the calming spell) meaning that subsequent attacks will be considered assault if you are in town even if your enemy attacked you first. It is best to never use this weapon except against creatures. It also makes a fine artifact to give to Torasa Aram during The Blade of Nerevar quest.


  • This artifact can be sold to Torasa Aram in the museum for 20,000 gold.
  • There is a rumor that the blade was stolen, but the guards caught and killed the thief.
