Lo and behold there is another new Skywind trailer out, this one entitled “Savagery“. While it obviously showcases some of the redesigned creatures, I’m guessing that the title is also a reference to the savagery of Morrowind’s landscape, with it’s barren rocks and brooding swamps. Take a look see!
Remember that promo trailer for Skywind I posted a while back? A 10min development documentary has just been made, detailing how the production process is going, take a look!
When it is finally finished, the mod will be free to download, though will require a copy of Morrowind to play.
Here is a trailer for Skywind, a crossover mod that recreates Morrowind by modding Skyrim. Take a look see at it here, Call of the East:
It’s currently in alpha, but looks promising!
Note: Most of my Elder Scrolls experience comes from Oblivion and Skyrim, so that’s the perspective from which this is being written.
10. Mace of Molag Bal
This mace is given out by the Daedric prince Molag Bal in Oblivion for provoking a pacifist into murdering you, and in Skyrim for beating and killing a priest (Molag Bal isn’t a nice guy). However, this mace is worth it, as it will attack the victim’s melee and magic capabilities.
9. Mehrune’s Razor
Yet another Daedric weapon here, Goldbrand features only in Oblivion this time, and is rewarded for competing in a tournament against every race in Tamriel. This sword holds the distinction of being the most powerful one-handed weapon in the game (Umbra has a higher base damage, but Goldbrand’s fire enchantment makes it a generally far more effective).
The first non-Daedric weapon on the list now, and the Dragonbane, featuring in Skyrim, does exactly what you’d expect from a game filled with dragons, kills them good. Found in Sky Haven Temple, this Akavari katana will do an extra 40 damage to any dragons, and an extra 10 points of shock to anything else that gets in your way. Useful, even if you’re not fighting dragons.
Another Akavari katana, Northwind is more or less a more conservative version of Dragonbane (though this features in Oblivion, not Skyrim). 20 points of cold damage to all opponents is no bad thing (frost damage being my favourite, just saying).
A weapon that looks absolutely demonic, Volendrung is the two-handed mace of the Daedric pring Malacath. While in Oblivion it drained health, paralysed and was a beast of a warhammer in terms of sheer damage, in Skyrim it was toned down a little, absorbing stamina instead.
4. Blade of Woe
This little ebony dagger starts out from humble beginnings, with no enchantments at all, but by the end of Oblivion’s dark brotherhood questline will be your go-to-melee-sneak-attacking weapon of choice.
3. Ebony Blade
Another ebony weapon, what can I say, they’re good. Ebony blade was good in Oblivion (absorbing health and silencing spell-casters), but it got great in Skyrim (absorbing more and more health the more people it slays).
Although it was a bit bugged, when it was working properly this bow was, for my money, my favourite weapon in Oblivion. Perfect for taking out foes at range in any scenario, it did extra damage to health and magicka, turned the undead, and applied a weakness to poison as well. Truly a great bow.
Seeing as I said my favourite Elder Scrolls element was frost, it should come as no surprise that this would top the list, a glass sword tinted pale blue as ice, instead of the usual stock green. While in Oblivion it was a perfect shortsword for most situations, dealing plenty of frost damage to take out anyone and anything (and being light and quick too), once again the weapon was beefed up in Skyrim, gaining the paralyse ability too. A must-have.
Any other weapons you think should have made the list? Let me know in the comments below!
7. Dog (Resident Evil 4)
6. Peter Puppy
4. Dog (Fable II)
3. Dog (Dragon Age: Origins)
Strictly not called a dog but a “Mabari War Hound”, these vicious beasts are loyal and deadly, being used by the protagonist and the Fereldan military alike. (Mild early-game spoilers in this next clip.)
I almost feel like taking back what I just wrote about Arcanine, because Okami’s Amaterasu is truly legendary. The sun goddess, Amaterasu paints the world good again, quite literally. The art style in this game is fantastic, along with the music, setting and feel of it. A majestic place for the top dog (pun intended).
So, that’s it! Were there any dogs you think should have made it into the top ten and didn’t? Comment below and let me know!
