Merchant Avail. Rare
A Daedra heart

Daedra Hearts are collected from slain Dremora. In addition to their alchemical uses, they are also a key ingredient in making Daedric armor and weapons, both at standard forges and at the Atronach Forge. These multiple uses, coupled with their rarity, make them extremely valuable items. Although Daedra hearts are rare, nearly all of their sources do respawn, meaning that obtaining sufficient Daedra hearts for creating Daedric gear may be difficult, but should never be impossible.

It is categorized as a rare ingredient, meaning that most apothecary merchants have a 21% chance of carrying 1-4 samples. In addition, it may be randomly found only in rare-type apothecary's satchels. Other possible locations for already-harvested samples include:


Daedra hearts are dropped by all varieties of Dremora, i.e., Dremora Caitiffs, Churls, Kynreeves, Kynvals, Lords, and Markynaz, as well as named Dremora, namely Velehk Sain. Some places where Dremora can be encountered and killed include:

  • The Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon. During the quest Pieces of the Past, four Dremora will appear around the shrine: two outside and two inside. After completing the quest, the Dremora in and around the shrine will continue to spawn every few days.
  • During the quest The Black Star, there are three Dremora.
  • One is encountered after completing the maze in Labyrinthian.
