This The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim player has managed to forge the unthinkable - a wooden sword that will give you more than a splinter if you meet the business end of the blade.
Alright, alright. Settle down. I can see some of you already putting your hands up to remind me this is a game that came out ten years ago, not ten days ago. I know that too. However, the sheer scale of Skyrim means that it's retained a community of players who have been digging through every last secret in the world.
For example, there's a way of resolving the Eldergleam quest that doesn't require you to return drenched in blood. And those pedestals in tombs with a treasure on top that will definitely stab you as soon as you try to remove the sparkly goodie? You can swap something out of your inventory, drop it on the pressure plate on the pedestal, and that treasure is yours, no skewering needed.
Oh, Skyrim. What a weird and wonderful realm you are. Check out our compilation of wins and fails in the fantasy world below!
Sometimes it's fun to see what Skyrim will let its Dragonborns get away with, too. Reddit user TerrorTwisted took the wooden sword - a toy for children that came with the Hearthfire expansion - and turned it into the most fearsome weapon in the game.
Seriously. This bad boy has a base damage of 101, fifty times that of its original state. Then, consider that it has a chance for each element of frie, frost and shock to deal out 259 points of damage. And, with every strike, the victim suffers 165 points of frost damage to their health and stamina pools.
For an object that is the second-weakest "weapon" in the game, that's the dictionary definition of a glow up. If you want to run rampant through Skyrim with a silly sword, then TerrorTwisted and another player have offered a guide to help you out.
The Anniversary Edition of the game, slated to launch November 11th, will include all of the DLCs with a brand new fishing minigame too. Tidy. Now, while this is brilliant news for longtime players and newcomers, it's not so brilliant to notice that Bethesda increased the price of the Special Edition of the stellar RPG. And it's quite the hike.
