Daedra Heart

A Daedra Heart is an ingredient in Skyrim. It is used both in smithing — to create Daedric armor and weapons — or in alchemy — to create potions.

Because there are few Daedra in Skyrim and most are found in the quests to obtain Daedric artifacts, the Daedra Heart is a rare ingredient. Here are a few locations where they can be found:

  • Hagraven Nests: Random loot on Hagravens.
  • Jorrvaskr: Laying on Kodlak Whitemane’s desk in his study.
  • Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon: Guaranteed loot on the four Dremora.
  • College of Winterhold: Enthir sells them, but his prices are high.
  • Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary: Babette sells them.


  • Restore Health
  • Damage Stamina Regen
  • Damage Magicka
  • Fear
