Keening (Skyrim): ID, Spawn Commands, Value, Weight & Damage

Binh Tran
Keening is a unique dagger crafted by the Dwemer Lord Kagrenac. Although it’s not highly rated in attack damage, it has a unique enchantment that absorbs 10 points of health, magicka, and stamina on strike. But note that its ability is only available after completing the quest “Arniel’s Endeavor”, Keening has a unique enchantment that lowers maximum health, stamina, and magicka by 5 points in advance. The weapons can be found in various locations during the quest such as Autumnshade Clearing, Broken Helm Hollow, Cragslane Cavern, Cragwallow Slope, etc. But you can get it without doing the quest by spawning via the ID below.
