Shocked how weak the chillrend is on the game. It was a very nice glass sword on skyrim.
The problem is most of the weapons in the game scale to your level you are when you find them. That's probably why the chillrend you found was weak.
Check out this
Chillrend can go from 7-21 damage, depending on what level you are when you find it. Not to mention, the proc effect gets stronger too. So, you got screwed.
This is why I absolutely hated oblivion. I was a huge morrowind player and it hurt me when I saw how badly level scaling was implemented in Oblivion and how many other horrible design flaws they made. They fixed most of these problems in Fallout 3 and Skyrim.
I always recommend Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul (Mod) to anyone that plays Oblivion. It's almost a complete overhaul to all the bad systems in the game, and actually makes it awesome.
