How do I ensure that the Ebony Blades I have are powered-up if I used console commands to procure them?

  • How do I ensure that the Ebony Blades I have are powered-up if I used console commands to procure them? galacticninja

    Background info on why I am asking this:

    I used console commands to give myself the Ebony Blade, and murdered multiple clones of my spouse (through the player.placeatme console command) to power up (increase the Absorb Health effect of) the Ebony Blade. I wasn't sure that the Ebony Blade was being powered-up so I checked out UESP's article about it which stated that "For every two such NPCs that are killed with the blade, Mephala will speak to you". Mephala never spoke to me while I did the killing, so I finished the Ebony Blade's related quest (The Whispering Door) without using console commands and got the Ebony Blade the normal way.

    I then again proceeded to murder multiple clones of my spouse and this time, Mephala spoke to me every two kills. After I fully powered-up the blade (verified through the console command, sqv da08ebonybladetracking as suggested by the UESP article on the Ebony Blade), I realized that I still have my console command-procured Ebony Blade. So now, I have two Ebony Blades.

    Since the game doesn't state how much 'Absorb Health' effect the Ebony Blades have, I am unsure if both weapons are powered-up. I also would like to know if further Ebony Blades I add through console commands will be powered up as I would like my follower(s) to use the Ebony Blade too.

    Note: I have the Unofficial Skyrim Patch (USKP) installed which fixes bugs related to the Ebony Blade. USKP changelog here (search for 'Ebony Blade' to find its related fixes)

    My questions:

    • Are both Ebony Blades powered up?
    • If I add another Ebony Blade through console commands, will that Ebony Blade also be powered up? If not, how do I power it up? Do I have to kill people again per console command-added Ebony Blade?
    • If I give a console command-procured Ebony Blade to a follower, will that Ebony Blade also be powered-up?

I always try to deal the killing blow, but I don't get the captured soul animation nor do I notice my Soul Gems filling up.

  • Early on in my quest, Dryston would not stop fighting in a fist fight so I accidentally ended up killing him.

Every single one. I am at level 48, so can survive until I go through a door or move... and imprison me.
