Permissions and credits


Shadowmourne is a legendary Two-handed Axe that was forged in mind-freezing temperatures using the souls it had once captured. It has been passed down to Death Knights who overcome numerous trials within the frozen lands of its origin. It is currently held by Highlord Darion who sits upon his lonely throne inside Icewind Hollow. It is there you must defeat him but beware, Shadowmourne has made him incredibly strong! So bring a follower...or 10 if you're VatiWah!

Appearance varies based on ENB Preset & Game Settings. My mods are ideally created for ENB. Also, you don't have to like World of Warcraft to use this! 

The best way to fight with Shadowmourne, is to wait until Chaos Bane proc's, then unleash your Power Attacks for maximum deadly hits!

What this mod includes: 

Shadowmourne (Two-Handed)
30 Base Damage - Has a 10% chance to cast Chaos Bane, which for 10 seconds, quadruples your current Attack Power. Also fills Soul Gems on low percentage!

Dragonsteel Armor
A standalone retexture of the vanilla Dragonplate, Dragonsteel offers slightly higher defence due to being coated in liquid metal. Also craftable at the forge.

Do NOT optimize the textures! Some maps are purposely uncompressed!

View on Sketchfab!


You must travel to Icewind Hollow which is south of Dawnstar. There you will adventure through a short dungeon and hopefully claim your own Shadowmourne!

Known Issues:

- Highlord Darion sometimes falls into the water on Death. Climb the icicles on the side to leave.
- Outer Glow effect is brighter in some situations, darker in other situations. Hard to find a balance.
- Dragonsteel Gauntlets clip through Orc's arms. Bethesda's fault.
