Skyrim:Daedric Quests

< Quests

The Daedric Quests are quests that are completed at the request of one of the Daedric Princes, for some kind of reward, usually a Daedric artifact. Sixteen Daedric Artifacts are available in total (note that the Skeleton Key is not considered to be a Daedric Artifact in Skyrim). Daedric Quests are not considered Side Quests.

Most of the Daedric quests also have an associated "Pointer Quest", which is a miscellaneous quest objective you may be given that leads you to the actual Daedric quest. It is not always necessary to obtain the Pointer Quest before starting the main quest, but it is the most likely way that you will find out about the Daedric quest. In some cases, you can start the actual Daedric quest by simply visiting the shrine or other location where a Daedric worshipper can be found.

Most of the quests can only be removed from your 'to do' journal upon completion. However, a few of the quests can be failed. This is usually achieved by killing the mortal quest giver. For example, upon entering Silus Vesuius' home, you can kill him, resulting in the failure of Pieces of the Past.

Achievements related to daedric quests are:

  •   {{{name}}} ({{{points}}} points)
  •   {{{name}}} ({{{points}}} points)
    • It is possible to miss this achievement. To receive it, you must not simply complete 15 Daedric Quests, but must also choose the quest ending that gives you the Daedric Artifact.
    • Quests which do not simply result in you receiving one artifact are:
    • Even if you sell, give away, or otherwise lose an artifact after receiving it, you will still receive the achievement. All that matters is whether you ever had possession of the artifact.
    • The game tracks the number of Daedric Artifacts and the number of completed Daedric Quests separately. The only statistic visible to the player in-game is the number of "Daedric Quests Completed" (under General Stats). Since the quest statistic is incremented even if you complete a quest without receiving the artifact, it may not reliably indicate your progress towards this achievement.
