Mace of Molag Bal
A Unique Weapon in The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, it is the Artifact of the Daedric Prince of Dominance, Molag Bal. A massive Daedric Mace, it does 16 base damage like any other, Damages Magicka, and Stamina for 25 points, and Soul Traps for 3 seconds on strike. It also has a unique appearance, which triggers comments from NPCs expressing terror. Triple enchanted, it unfortunately only holds a charge for a few strikes. (With it's soul trap, it can be recharged often, however.)
Acquired in the House of Horrors Daedric Quest, it counts towards the Oblivion Walker Achievement. The quest can be started by speaking to a Vigilant of Stendarr in Markarth right down the street from the main gate, and he will force dialog with the Dragonborn. I will warn you, this is a Daedric Quest, so rife with subject matter that some players may be uncomfortable with, including betrayal, torture, to death, resurrection, and some more torture. There is also a Radiant sub-quest to rescue a priest from a random Forsworn Redoubt.
To be frank, this thing, and the quest to get it are pure irredeemable Evil. If that's what you're going for, it's probably right up your alley. If not, don't even walk through the door.
