For anyone who doesn't know, the Ebony Warrior is total mysterious badass. He shows up out of nowhere once you reach level 80, informs you of his accomplishments as an undefeated warrior, and challenges you to a fight to the deal at his last vigil. He seeks you out as he thinks you are the only one worthy of sending his soul to Sovngarde. He's actually really respectful.

He's a ******* beast when it comes to magic and one-handed combat, uses a frost cloak, healing spells, is 50% resistant to all elements, is 20% taller than the player, and of course has full ebony armor. He's immune to all forms of paralysis and fear, resist vampiric grip and Wabbajack, knows the third levels of Unrelenting Force and Disarm shouts and WILL use them against you. His armor has a regeneration enchantment, he uses restoration spells AND healing potions, his sword absorbs 25 health per hit, AND he has a chance to completely reflect melee damage. All in all, he's actually a pretty ******* hard guy to kill, comparatively speaking. Were he the Dragonborn instead of you, he'd have absolutely no problem with killing Alduin. I only wish that you could make him your follower, but he's immune to Bend Will and Dead Thrall, and is only interested in testing his might or finding Sovngarde.

He was actually one of the few NPC's I admired in Skyrim... Anyways, here's his wiki: elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Ebony_Warrior

Pic related, it's my badass Skyrim character, inspired by the Ebony Warrior.

But can he beat the true Black Knight?

He seems like the perfect person to carry Umbra from the other Elder Scrolls games. He even wears all ebony like the person who carried it in Oblivion

When I was fighting him I used the Champions of Valor shout and the champion I got immediately used fus ro dah and blew him off the mountain and the great Ebony Warrior died of fall damage. On one hand I'm glad he was killed quickly but on the other it sucks I couldn't have an epic battle.

Time to dust off Skyrim...

Just when I thought I was done playing Skyrim, I'm given another reason to go back.

I want whatever mod gives that ebony armour the glowing detail.
care to share?
User avatar #70 to #46 - newforomador (10/01/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure that it's just enchanted, but I could be wrong
User avatar #125 to #70 - neverborn (10/02/2013) [-]
enchantments aren't visible on armour when equipped, they do glow slightly in your inventory or on the ground, even then there's not that detailed glow

Holy **** , i have to get lvl 80 now
User avatar #36 to #14 - heartlessrobot (10/01/2013) [-]
******* hell that dude was awesome. He took out 2 ******* dragons, 4 giants, 6 mammoths, 5 vampires, 3 death hounds, and about 7 bandits. I just sat there trying not to piss myself because I was stuck outside my house encumbered.

He's not immune to Dead Thrall, it's level capped so it can't work on level >39 enemies.
But there is a trick to force people to level 1 then make them scale to your level.

I have the Marcurio, Ebony Warrior+Forsworn Briar Heart modded as a follower along with the DB initiates all scaled to 81 along with 1 Volkihar Vampire thrall, Orchendor thrall, Champion of Boethiah thrall & Chief Yamarz thrall. (alternate between 2 thralls).

What are the other characters that you admire?
#73 to #28 - derksuls (10/01/2013) [-]
Kharjo, Erik the slayer and Ralof

I like Serana and Paarthurnax, but then again who doesn't.
Balgruuf is also a pretty cool guy.
User avatar #110 to #69 - hellfury (10/02/2013) [-]
I murdered Paarthurnax without a second thought just because I could. I then proceeded to kill the remaining blades. 0 ***** given that day and i got a tasty dragon soul to add to my 40 unused dragon souls

I turned into a werewolf and ate him. It was an honorable feast

Awww, apparently if you fight and kill him before finishing the main quest, Bethesda didn't make it so that he appears in Sovngarde. That's kinda sad.
#21 to #20 - anon (10/01/2013) [-]
its because only nords can go to sovngarde, so this guy probably never got his only wish after all of his hard work to become the best
#52 to #21 - birdofprey (10/01/2013) [-]
But doesn't General Tullius end up in Sovngarde as well if you kill him? He's an Imperial.
#53 to #52 - birdofprey (10/01/2013) [-]
Oh wait no, my mistake. Legate Rikke ends up in Sovngarde.
