Collect 15 Daedric Artifacts    

Daedra within the Elder Scrolls series basically means divine and powerful beings. For the most part these beings and their actions are evil, so in getting 15 Daedric artefacts, the chances are you’re going to have to destroy plenty of evil spirits along the way. Some of the Daedric artefacts come from shrine missions, where you must interact with the spirit of the shrine and perform some crazy ol’ quest for them and others you’ll come across in Skyrim. In return, you get a Daedric artefact.

The truth is, these shrine missions and Daedric quests in general are some of the best missions in the game, so this won’t seem like that much of a chore and they take you to some interesting and wonderful places. Enjoy these! Well, most of them:

Mace of Molag Bal – "House of Horrors" quest in Markarth – As you walk past the abandoned house when you’re in the city – not the first time – someone will ask you to accompany them inside. Finish the quest (including finding the priest of Boethiah) and follow it through to the end to grab a Daedric artefact.

Dawnbreaker - "The Break of Dawn quest," received at Statue to Merida – west of Solitude. It’s basically a fetch, return and dungeon crawl mission. Complete it for the Daedric artefact.

Spellbreaker - "The Only Cure" quest, received at the Shrine to Peryite, which can be found on the top of the mountain in between Markarth and Solitude. It’s worth activating early so you can keep an eye open for the goods on the shopping list. The actual quest itself is long and tough, so don’t tackle below a level 20, at least.

Sanguine’s Rose – In the Vilemyr Inn in Ivarstead you’ll meet a chap called Sam Guevenne who will challenge you to a drinking competition which will initiate the “Night to Remember” quest. Challenge him and then embark on one of the most amusing quests of Skyrim. Your reward is the Sanguine’s Rose staff. Note: Sam could actually turn up in any one of a number of inns in Skyrim, not just the one in Ivarstead (he's been seen in Riften, plus many other places), so just keep an eye out as you explore and work through everything else.

The Black Star (or Azura's Star) – If you head to Azura’s Shrine on the top of the big mountain, just south of Winterhold you can start “The Black Star” quest and eventually get The Black Star artefact (or Azura's Star, depending on your choice at the end).

Wabbajack – Wandering the streets of Solitude is a chap called Derevin who wants you to get a message to his master. This will trigger “The Mind of Madness” quest where you’ll have to go to the Pegasus Wing in the Blue Palace and search for him. Complete the quest and get the artefact. Stuck? Need assistance in this quest? Quick note: you might find the waking up Pelagius sequence rather tricky, so basically the solution is this: shoot Pelgius with Wabbajack, shoot wolf, shoot goat, shoot bandit, shoot Pelagius, shoot Hagraven, shoot Pelagius, shoot Flame Atronach, shoot dragon priest, done. The paranoia sequence, shoot the king. And finally, the mind sequence, grow Pelagius twice and then grow anger once (with the Wabbajack).

Missable!! Mehrunes’ Razor – Sometime in the game you’ll get a message from a courier to visit the museum in Dawnstar – visit it. Visit it even if you don’t and start the “Pieces of the Past” quest to get your hands on Mehrunes’ Razor, which will send you to three places in Skyrim to get the three pieces of the sword. I get the feeling that you have to kill Silus at the end to forge the dagger and get the artefact, so do that, just in case.

Savior’s Hide (or the Ring of Hirscine) – In Falkreath at the Falkreath Barracks (east of town), downstairs in the Falkreath jail you’ll find a chap called Sinding who will give you his cursed ring and thus starts the quest, “Ill Met by Moonlight.” Whatever happens in the quest depends on which Daedric artefact you get.

Again, like the rest, you must choose to kill or risk not getting the reward. Note: yippy smalz offered this handy tip: "'s possible to get both Daedric artifacts in the quest "Ill met by moonlight." You agree to help kill the hunters and then afterwards talk to Sigmund then kill him and skin him and you get the hide. Leave the cave and you get the ring."

Missable!! Masque of Clavicus Vile – The first time you enter Falkreath (after you become a level 10) through the front gate the guard will mention something about the blacksmith’s dog going missing. Speak to him and then go after the dog. When you meet the dog you’ll initiate the “A Daedra’s Best Friend” quest and head off to Haemar’s Shame at the south of the large mountain with High Hrothgar on it – east of Helgen – note: you have to follow the dog but he has terrible path finding, so you could just meet him there. You’ll then set off to retrieve The Rueful Axe from Rimrock Burrow and return it. NOTE: Do NOT kill Barbas with the axe when you return, give it back to Clavicus and get the Daedric masque.

Oghma Infinium – During the main quest you’ll meet Septimus Sigmus who will send you off to get an Elder Scrolls. During this quest he will start another quest called “Discearning the Transmundane” where you’ll have to take an imprint of the Elder Scroll on his Lexicon. Giving that to Septimus then opens up the next stage: harvesting blood of an Orc, Dark Elf, Wood Elf, High Elf and Falmer – honestly, do this quest as early as possible so you can grab the blood as you go along. Every time you can harvest some blood it will give you an option when you interact with their corpse (harvest blood or search body). Get all 5 and head back to Septimus’ outpost, north of Winterhold. If you’re curious where to find the Orc and Elf blood, loot bandit camps as they often roam around with them, for the Falmer, try Mzulft (southeast of Windhelm) on the first level, right near the door down to the Boilery – there is one lowly Falmer here.

NOTE: The Oghma Infinium is bloody ace and raises a lot of your certain skills (depending on what path you choose), use it late on for added effect! We even went one step further and broke it down for you...

Each path improves the levels listed next to them below by 5 levels. Depending on which you have higher ratings for depends on the best route to take:

Choosing the path of might increases: smithing, heavy armour, blocking, two-handed, one-handed, archery.

Choosing the path of shadows increases: light armour, sneaking, lock-picking, pick-pocketing, speech and alchemy.

Choosing the path of magic increases: illusion, destruction, conjuration, restoration, alteration and enchanting.

Ebony Mail – East of Windhelm you’ll find the Sacellum of Boethiah where you’ll find a cult and be able to initiate the quest, “Boethiah’s Calling.” You must be at least a level 30 for the cult to appear.

You’ll have to lead someone there and sacrifice them. All I did was head to Riften, went to the The Bee and Barb and enlisted the help of the mercenary (Marcurio) who sits downstairs, for 500 gold. Don’t just kill them though, instruct them to touch the beacon (“I need you to do something,” then click on the ‘pillar of sacrifice’) and then when they are trapped, then slay them. After that, complete the quest and retrieve the artefact. Simples.

Missable!! Skull of Corruption – If you head to the Windpeak Inn in Dawnstar you’ll see a bit of a situation arise with locals speaking to Erandur regarding some night terrors they’ve been having. Speak to Erandur and start the “Waking Nightmare” quest.

It’s a simple follow him, go here, go there achievement (note: the Dreamstride book is on the balcony area in the far corner) but at the end when you get the chance to kill Erandur whilst he’s performing the ritual, kill him and you’ll get the Skull of Corruption. If you don’t, he destroys it.

Missable!! Ring of Namira – In Markarth, in the Understone Keep you’ll find a priest called Verulus who wants you to head into the Hall of the Dead to investigate what’s going on. The quest starts off as a miscellaneous objective and will soon turn into the quest, “The Taste of Death” once you’ve spoken to and agreed to help Eola in clearing Reachcliff Cave. There is a potential that you could say no to helping Eola… don’t!


Volendrug – (apparently have to be at least a level 9 to start this quest) West of Riften (slightly south too) you’ll find an Orc camp called Largashblur. The camp itself will be being attacked by a giant, once it’s dead speak to Atub in the robes who will start the quest, "The Cursed Tribe." Be careful not to hit the Orcs and anger them. You’ll have to go and fetch troll fat (there’s trolls nearby) and a Daedra heart (which could be tricky… you get it from a Daedra, not necessarily a prince, but a spirit; there are some Daedra inside the Shrine of Mehrunes’ Dagon if you’ve not already been in there). If not, you’ll have to buy one – we found one inside the Hall of Counternance/Attainment at the College of Winterhold. Enthir was selling them. Get the ingredients, head back, complete the short quest and kabblamo, Volendrug is yours. Yamarz will take you to Followstone Cave if you’re interested and want to meet him there (it’s northeast of Riften). No messing this one up. Yes, you’ll be fighting a giant or two too! Once you put the weapon on the shrine at the end, don’t forget to pick it up off the top of where the skull once was!

Ebony Blade – In order to start this quest you need to be a level 20 and have completed the main “Dragon Rising” quest. Also, if you choose the Stormcloaks in the civil war storyline, it doesn’t matter, you just have to help the new Jarl. To start this one, ask the bartender in the Bannered Mare in Whiterum about rumours, then go see the Jarl and activate “The Whispering Door” quest. You’ll need the key to open the whispering door to get the Ebony Blade; the best way: pickpocket it from the Yarl or Forengar (you can kill him and get the key but you can’t buy spells off him then.

oh cool, I liked these quests in Oblivion, glad they didn't get rid of Daedric
items, hope they don't have a Skeleton Key this time around.

Kind of lame they they completely make a skill useless by level 10.

Only 15 artifacts thats not right, their are 17 daedric princes altogether,
although u probably wont included Jyggalag so that should mean 16 so what about the other artifact

Notice that it doesn't say "Obtain ALL Daedric Artifacts". :)

Comment #9 by Bear TheTyrant
Friday, October 07, 2011 @ 12:36:44 PM


Maybe there's no "Shrine Quest" related to Shegorath or Jyggalag, due to the events that unfolded during the Shivering Isles DLC. That would explain the 15/17 number.

Comment #10 by mitcho2013
Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 01:25:52 PM

I agree. Due to Shivering Isles, Sheogorath and Jyggalag are "dead" or whatever the technical term is. 17-2=15.

Comment #11 by mitcho2013
Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 02:25:37 PM

actually on I learned that (in Obilvion) there were 15 WORSHIPPED Princes.

Azura, prince of dawn and dusk
Boethia, prince of conspiracy
Clavius Vile, prince of power
Hermaeus Mora, prince of fate
Hircine, prince of hunting
Malacath, prince of the excluded
Mephala, prince of interference in mortal affairs
Meridia, prince of the living
Molag Bal, prince of mortal enslavement (and rape)
Namira, prince of darkness
Nocturnal, prince of the night
Peyrite, prince of Lower Obivion (some say he is also prince of pestilence)
Sanguine, prince of sensual pleasures (sex basically)
Sheogorath (later PC of Oblivion), prince of insanity (used to be Jyggalag)
Vaermina, prince of dreams/nightmares

Those were the 15 that had shrine quests in Oblivion, however there are two more

Comment #12 by mitcho2013
Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 02:26:37 PM

princes. I'm guessing that either all princes will have shrine quests and you only have to do 15/17 of them or there are only 15 and you have to do all of them.

Jyggalag, prince of order (whom was cursed by the 14 other princes at the time to become a new prince called "Sheogorath". He was Jyggalag first then Sheogorath)
Mehrunes Dagon, prince of destruction

It's also somewhat worth mentioning that the princes Sheogorath and Mehrunes Dagon are both techincally dead. *SPOILER Mehrunes is killed by Martin/Akatosh in Oblivion and when you defeat Jyggalag in Shivering Isles, he was released from his curse and is able to remain in his true form (as Jyggalag), therefore making Sheogorath no longer a prince. Though maybe the PC from Oblivion might be able to take his place as a deadric pri

Comment #13 by mitcho2013
Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 02:29:47 PM

prince.* Guess we'll have to wait to see in the final prodcut or until Bethesda clears it up.

So basically, Jyggalag is still alive, and Sheogorath isn't, but the PC in Oblivion is the new prince of madness. So that makes 16 living princes due to Dagon's "death".

Dagon isn't dead, he was just banished back to his plane of Oblivion forever.

Comment #18 by AKirk93
Saturday, October 29, 2011 @ 11:59:17 AM

@12 you cannot kill a daedric prince, you can destroy it's physical form and force it to return to the void but it will create a physical form later.

Personally I'm not expecting a shrine to Mehrunes Dagon as he is considered an enemy of the Nords and Skyrim, why would they have a shrine to a daedra who wants to destroy them? He is also an enemy of Alduin the World Eater so it would make more sense for him to be part of the main storyline, rather than a sidequest.

The other missing Daedra is likely to be either Sheogorath or Jyggallag although excluding either without an explanation is going to cause one hell of a continuity problem.

Wednesday, November 02, 2011 @ 04:56:37 AM

@1 & 2: Sorry but some people just don't like the lockpicking minigame. So if you didn't want to have the unbreakable lockpick you could just not use it. It's all about free choices and everyone is allowed to use the given options or not. So I do hope to put something similar in. Oh and besides in Oblivion you could level up your alteration to have a cheap Very Hard lock unlock-spell anyways.....

@everyone: We don't know anything about similarities to storywise cases. For instance the deadric lords could have been long gone since the oblivion time. We could also have new deadric lords or perhaps totally different ones. Maybe even a dragon lord that's reborn?

@ 1 & 2: You know if you dropped or sold the item, you use the lockpicking bonus and start using regular lockpicks again...

I'm really hoping there are more than 15 artifacts...I wanted to make the good choice (pre-saved so I knew I was), and didn't get the Skull of Corruption.

I've gotten all of them except for the skeleton key and haven't gotten the achievement. Pretty pissed right now, hopefully the skeleton key will do it for me. I don't wanr ro start a whole new character and get to level 30 again just for this damn achievement.

Thursday, November 17, 2011 @ 08:01:05 AM

I just came across a Mehrunes Dagon shrine. It's confirmed. Also, it's locked so I'm guessing you need to complete the mythic dawn museum quest. As well, Sheogorath is in this one, he doesn't have a shrine, but there is a quest with him in it, and you do meet him again, and you do acquire wabbajack. Really fun/funny quest actually. I love that old scottish bastard ;)

Comment #37 by JamesCaesar
Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 03:36:09 PM

@34 I also destroyed the Vaermina's skull. I sure hope I don't miss out on the achievement but it does say COLLECT all the artifacts...

Comment #38 by JimBob Da Great
Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 06:17:13 PM

*** SPOILER ***
This is a rather easy achievement to mess up. There are 16 Daedric Artifacts but the Skeleton Key from Nocturnal does not count. That means you must obtain the other Daedric Artifacts from the remaining 15 princes.

The following quests can not be messed up so you can play them and kill whatever you want.
Azura - The Black Star
Boethiah - Ebony Mail (Requires Lvl 32 to start I believe)
Hermaeus Mora - Oghma Infinium
Hircine - Saviors Hide or Ring of Hircine (it doesn't matter - I choose the hide)
Malacath - Volendrung
Mephala - Ebony Blade
Meridia - Dawnbreaker
Molag Bal - Mace of Molog Bal
Petyite - Spellbreaker
Sanguine - Sanguine Rose
Sheogorath - Wabbajack

To prevent any story spoilers I will just say for the following quests you need to pay very

Comment #39 by JimBob Da Great
Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 06:22:31 PM

The four quests that can be messed up are:
Clavius Vile - You need the Masque of Clavius Vile
Mehrunes Dagon - You need Mehrune's Razor
Namira - You need the Ring of Nimira
Vaermina - You need the Skull of Corruption

Listen closely on these 4 quests to what the Daedric Prince is telling you to do.

Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 10:50:42 PM

How does the game record items for this achievement. Do they all need to be in your iventory/storage, or is it okay to sell them?

In addition, I killed the priest for the Skull of Corruption, but then reloaded and let him destroy it. Did I void myself of the achievement, or does the Xbox still think I obtained it?

and thank you #38 for that information!

NOO!! i let the priest destroy the skull of corruption! if this has screwed me out of that achievement, How many hours is this going to take on a new character? i read on elder scolls wikia that you can get both items for the hircine quest, but it didnt work for me ( thinking that i could have made up for the skull of corruption)... as they say in skyrim GODS be damned! kind of weird they made this achievement like this, and not just "dealt" w/ the daedric princes

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 06:57:04 AM

oh the key doesn't count...rats i never got that skull of corruption because i wanted erandur as a follower, i assumed the key counted, jokes on me cos erandur's bloody dead anyway :P oh well something to aim for in me next playthrough.

Hircine - Saviors Hide or Ring of Hircine

YOU CAN GET BOTH HERE check the road map guide this means if you mess one up you can still get the achievement

Comment #50 by Meridius HILT
Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 08:39:23 AM

I have done ALL of the Daedrik quests and obtained ALL items with one single exception: The Skull of Corruption (I got Erandur instead). So, based on this experience I am confident you require The Skull as well as 15 others in order to get the achievement, although at level 54 this was a real let down to find out. Or using the Ohgma Infinium, which causes it to disappear, is the cause though I doubted it since I actually *had* it and therefore it was collected.

Comment #51 by xXNINJEDIXx
Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 07:09:11 PM

I did ALL the daedrik quests also and did not destroy the skull of corruption and i still didn't get this one.. WTF

I recently emailed bethesda about a different major glitch i came across in the game and they said a patch is going to be put out within a week or so. so hopefully this is one of the things that gets fixed

Comment #53 by XipwnUX99
Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 10:35:12 PM

To clarify the skeleton key is NOT an artifact because you get it and return it during the thieves guild questline if you kill barbas(the dog) in a daedra's best friend quest for the axe you cannot get the achievement you have to have the mask in order for the achievement to work and you CAN make a save before you get the skull of corruption and redo the quest after getting when you have the achievement reload that save(make sure that is the last artifact) and let erandur complete the ritual

Comment #54 by Infectious1
Sunday, November 27, 2011 @ 10:25:53 AM

The Official guide says the Skeleton Key is an Artifact, however i had obtained
15 artifacts but the achievement did not pop. I had the Skeleton Key and the
oghama Infinium before as well. Only quest i could not do was for Boethiah as
i couldn't get a follower. However if you go back to the cave with the werewolf
in Ill met by moonlight if you decided to help him he will still be alive and
there. Thus if you obtained the ring of Hircine you can kill sinding then
Hircine will appear and give you the Saviors hide, even after the quest has
been completed. Achievement then popped so maybe the Skeleton Key does not count
can't confirm that though.

Sunday, November 27, 2011 @ 01:14:51 PM

Crap. I think I'm screwed on this one. I found a couple of them, but they were worse than what I was already using, so I sold them.
Also, found the Mehrunes Dagon shrine, but got no quest from it. Was able to go inside, but there was no quest that I found. I hope you can sell the items and still get counted for collecting them, otherwise I will have to do another playthrough just for those.

#55; You're not screwed. I sold all my artifacts and I got the cheevo. The description clearly says ''Obtain'', not ''Collect''. :)


To start the quest of Mehrunes Dagon, travel to Dawnstar. Enter Silus Vesuiu's house and speak to him [Silus]. That should start a quest namned ''Pieces of the Past''. I hope that will help you!

Also, like someone above said, the Skeleton Key does not count as an artifact. I had the skeleton key and 14 other Daedric artifacts, but did not unlock until I got another one.

A pretty fun and enjoyable achievement in my opinion. Will take a few hours to complete, though.

This is the only achieve I'm missing now. The last quest I had
to do was waking nightmare. It of course glitched on me, the guy
you follow disappeared and I can't progress in the level. Anyone who
has that quest left needs to make sure he's with you when you first
enter the building. Hopefully they fix this so I don't have to do
them all again. *sigh*

Can you get this achievement over more than one save file because I may have killed some daedric quest npcs by accident. I really don't want to start a new game for the fith time because of one dead npc. :(

I had the Ebony Blade stolen/wanish from my weapon rack in Whiterun.

Killed the Wife and Lydia to make sure they didn't steal it.

I too screwed up the skull quest so it looks like another play through.

Tuesday, December 13, 2011 @ 12:21:58 PM

How do you get the cured tribe quest?
I traveled to the orc village, but I ended up accidentally hitting an orc with the
splash from my fireball and they all attacked me. I killed them all, including
Olga who I think spawns the quest.(I had no idea at the time there was an important quest from the camp) I have left it for weeks and come back
but the only Orc in the camp is the chief, and he is hostile sometimes.

Comment #84 by mr1shank
Tuesday, December 13, 2011 @ 12:25:36 PM

Also if you are short an artifact ( corruption skull or you kill the dog) you can get two artifacts on the hicine hide quest. -Agree to kill all the hunters (get ring) the afterwords kill the warewolf and strip its skin to receive hicenes hide artifact.

Comment #85 by Lauranthala
Tuesday, December 13, 2011 @ 03:36:10 PM

Does it still work if you acquire them over multiple characters or do they all have
to be from the same one? I have let the Ritual complete for the skull of corruption
so was wondering if I could do the quest again with a new character to obtain this one.

Comment #86 by MeiTow
Wednesday, December 14, 2011 @ 11:53:21 AM

Oh, now I'm pissed. I've been really good at making sure I get the daedric artifacts becuase of this achievement but now I can't get it because I have the follower bug and can't lead someone to Boethia's shrine! Bull!!!

Comment #87 by Quelos
Wednesday, December 14, 2011 @ 03:00:24 PM

I missed this one the first time around. I helped that dark elf instead of killing him for the skull, it sucks. But now I can play it again.

Friday, December 16, 2011 @ 09:01:52 PM

I was missing the skull of corruption so came up one short. I went back to bloated man's grotto and to my surprise Sinding was still chillin out there. I killed him. Skinned him. Hircine showed up and granted me the hide. Achievement dinged!

On the quest you have to sacrifice a follower. I had to lay waste to every soul in that camp before it would work.

So i hit one of the orcs in the Cursed Tribe. And accidently pressed "over my dead body" when asked to pay the blood fee. Well after that, the lady who gives the quest disapeared. Now i can't find her. I have 14/15. This is the final one left. I am currently testing to see if it can be over multiple saves (kind of doubt it tho)

Comment #91 by Auron Surmount
Sunday, December 18, 2011 @ 01:33:41 AM

That is a big negative ghost rider. YOu can not do it over multiple saves. You must have all 15 artifacts in one save. You do not have to have them in your pocession, just have gotten them at one point in that save. I am on Daedric Quest #5. Ten quests i already did to go :D.

Comment #92 by eclaireed

Monday, December 19, 2011 @ 04:37:36 AM

This is the gayest achievement ever in an RPG. If you miss any of the artifacts in any of the 15 Daedric quests (by choosing a different way to end the quest than scripted) then you just screwed yourself. The Skeleton key does NOT count because it is part of the Thieves guild missions. Wow I literally took 8 hours just to finish every quest just to find out that I ended up not getting the Masque of Clavicus Vile (instead i killed the guy with the rueful axe). Literally the most dissapointing thing ever. It will take you at least another 20-30 hours or so to go back from the very beginning of the game to get up to the level 30 that you have to be at to unlock every one of these missions.

Comment #96 by Scott Ad Rock

Wednesday, December 28, 2011 @ 04:24:43 PM

From what I've been told you only have to of had them all in the same play through, you don't have to keep them, but I've not tested this, as I have got 14 & my last one The Break of Dawn, has glitched so can't finish quest off, & it's my last achievement aswell which means gonna have to start a new game just for 1 achievement, unless Bethesda fix this

Comment #104 by CaptainKazuma

On the Mehrunes Dagon quest I chose to spare Silus....does this mean I can't get the achievement now unless I start a new game!?!?!? I'm level 80 and I do not feel like starting over just to get one pain in the ass Cheevo

Monday, January 23, 2012 @ 08:21:18 AM

Had to start the game again on another profile character. All because Lod was dead in Falkreath who is the quest giver for a "a deadras best friend"
killled by a dragon and couldnt find a way to ressurect him on the xbox 360 only if i had a PC. Anyway what a pain this was would have been much easier had the game not screw you over 110 hrs into your main profile.

Comment #123 by MeiTow
Tuesday, January 24, 2012 @ 01:47:02 PM

#122-> Yeah, I had that happen when I went to return the Forgemaster's Fingers to the orc chief. A dragon killed him and now I don't have the quest, still have the Fingers, and every orc area I run into doesn't seem to have the option of starting a new quest. Very disappointed. lol

Comment #124 by Distractor08
Wednesday, January 25, 2012 @ 07:38:44 PM

Just got the achievement. Luckily my first artifact was the vile helmet not knowing it was a artifact. Good thing I am a dog lover!!! My advice for you is if you are worried that you will mess up or can't find the start quest, then look it up on google. Google is always a cheap way to figure out everything you need. I titled my search "skyrim 15 daedric artifacts location."

Comment #126 by Crispo
Tuesday, January 31, 2012 @ 05:17:55 PM

It seems to me most of these Daedric quests involve you having to sacrifice a life to obtain the artifact for the achievement, except of course when it comes to a fucking dog where the opposite is true. How the fuck are you supposed to forsee that.
Thank the stars I read this page for a get out clause with the werewolf quest or there would be murder at bethesda!

Comment #127 by trend0n
Friday, February 03, 2012 @ 11:50:42 AM

My game glitched when trying to go into the shrine/castle for the nightmare quest. I entered and the guy (cant remember his name) didnt follow me. So i left and went outside, nope not there either. Go back in, and he's on the other side of the door he has to open "WTF!!". And luckily it autosaved everytime i went in and out. I looked when the last time I hard saved it, like 10 hours before... I emailed bethesda to see if they were gonna patch this, they said "Just reload a previous save...".

Comment #128 by chibchab
Saturday, February 04, 2012 @ 09:10:12 PM

If you load back to a previously saved game when you were a lower level to get a certain artifact and then load back to a different one to get other artifacts...can you still get the achievement even if all the artifacts aren't on one saved game?

Comment #129 by ProGuitarGamer
Sunday, February 05, 2012 @ 03:30:28 PM

I think my game glitched. I killed the giant at the orc camp where you get the Volendrung, however I didn't noticed Atub, so I just fast travled to another place. However, now I can't find Atub, so that I can start the quest. Any suggestions?

Comment #130 by KingsOfArcadia
Wednesday, February 08, 2012 @ 09:49:05 AM

I am so hoping that by getting both the Ring of Hircine & the Savior's Hide, it'll make up for the fact that I spared that stupid dog's life and took the Rueful Axe instead. Otherwise, I am screwed. I can't see myself restarting the entire game for this one achievement, and I really do not want to have to go back to a previous save and start over from there. :(

Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 02:11:51 PM

If anyone is experiencing glitches with the quest where you get Volendrung, then stand outside of the Orc Camp and wait for a dragon to appear. If it works Atub will appear and you can start the quest.

I just got this achievement!! After screwing up A Deadras Best Friend and Skull of corruption, I went back to a previous save point and re-did Deadras best friend correctly, saving the dog (it was the later of the two save points). Then I was able to do that trick talked about above, where you get both Saviors Hide and the Ring of Hircine and it did work! I can confirm it counted as two towards the achievement.

I got both Hircine Ring and Saviors Hide, didn't get skull of corruption. Technically I've had 15 artifacts in my possession at one time. However, gave the Ebony Mail to a follower, then put him to work with the Blades. now, he no longer has the Ebony Mail on him. Got the 15th artifact after my follower went to the Blades.

Have not got the achievement. Am I screwed?

Comment #142 by Jenrai
Monday, March 12, 2012 @ 07:20:25 PM

Kanndae - No, you're missing something.
You don't have to own all 15 items at once. You can sell them immediately. You just need to have earned them - picked the right outcome from the quest for the game to actually recognise you had that item at some point.
Silly question, in your questing log, how many Deadric quests does it say you've finished?

Comment #148 by Foden333
Tuesday, March 27, 2012 @ 08:13:37 AM

Be careful with this achievement. There are 3-4 I believe that give you an option. One (unable to remember the name) you have to stab the guy in the back while he is casting in the tower. Also for some reason this did not pop for me until I collected all of them. Which makes me wonder about the skele key, as I followed the guide word for word on all the others.

Ok this achievement is really annoying me. I can't find Sam Guevenne anywhere for the drinking challenge. I've read that he can be in Dragonsreach, the inn in Whiterun, the inn in Winterhold, tavern in Riften, Rorikstead inn, vilemyr inn in Ivarstead and the winking skeever in Solitude. For 4 days (real time) I've been going to those locations over and over and over and over again, waiting outside each one for a day then going in again (I would do that 7 times) then move onto the next one, and he's never been in any of them. I'm running out of patience with this p*sstake. Is there any tips which will make it easier to find him?

For the "i'll met by moonlight" quest i got both thering and saviours hide. I followed the quest as normal upto killing the hunters,then i leftthe cave and when hircine tried to talk to me i backed out of the conversation. The wolf (sinding) was walking out the cave just then. I killed him talked to him got the ring and then talked to Hircine again and Voila! I had both artifacts.

yea i went through the whole game up to level 64 expecting to get this chieve but came to find out that the damn rueful axe doesnt count and i had already finished the thieves guild quest line...i now have every achievement save for this one...fml

It should probably be noted under the "Ebony Blade" quest that it is possible for Hulda from The Bannered Mare to be killed during the war if you don't complete this before doing so, rendering it impossible to speak to her and trigger this quest line. I found this out the hard way and almost broke my TV until I remembered I got both artefacts from the werewolf quest, so I didn't need this one to net the 15.

#7 im pretty sure that there are like 16 or 17 daedric artifacts that count towards this quest being as the skeleton key that you get from a i think thieves guild quest you dont get to keep, however there is a daedric quest that u can glitch to get the savior's hide and the ring of narima or something like that.

I looked at all of these guides to late. I didn't kill the priest to get the Skull artifact, and had already killed the werewolf without getting both artifacts. Being 120 hours into the game, I almost cried. Then I looked back, and for whatever reason, I had created a save almost 100 hours in. I still have to get eight of the artifacts, but it's not nearly as bad as having to start completely over.

Is there a video walkthrough anywhere for getting both rewards from the Ill Met by Moonlight quest? Whenever I go back to try it, I can't find the werewolf after I've gotten the ring from Hircine, and without being able to find him, I can't get the savior's hide. Maddening. The save I have where I bugged this up by killing that damn dog is well over 80 hours back, so I'm not about to start again from there.

Um I just completed Discerning the Transmundance, and after I read the Oghma Infinium the book just disappeared out of my inventory.

Is that normal? Can I still get the achievement?

Comment #167 by KingsOfArcadia
Friday, May 11, 2012 @ 07:25:27 AM

@ #170 - yes, that's normal and will still count for you.

As for glitching Ill Met By Moonlight, for those who need both rewards for the achievement, I did it like this:

When you first meet Sindig in Bloated Man's Grotto, agree to let him live, and help him clear out the hunters. Be careful not to hit him with a wild swing or badly aimed bolt of magic, as he'll turn hostile after 1 hit. Once the hunters have been cleared out, he'll have a few words to say, and he'll then start shuffling off. Follow him closely. If he stops, try to nudge him so he keeps moving. He'll head back to the exit. Exit to Skyrim just behind him. As soon as you return to Skyrim, a ghostly white elk will start to speak to you - exit the conversation ASAP. Turn around, Sindig should be right behind you. Kill hi

Comment #168 by KingsOfArcadia
Friday, May 11, 2012 @ 07:28:08 AM

Kill him, and take his hide. A human ghost appears and speaks to you - let him say his piece, and you'll get the Savior's Hide reward. The ghost elk is still there - go speak to him, and you'll get the Ring of Hircine, and Voila! You now have 2 rewards, so if you messed up one of the others (I let that stupid dog live in A Daedra's Best Friend), you'll be back on track. Hope that helps!

@178 why on earth would you skip the oghma infinium? you can boost all of your skills in any of the three main playtypes by five points. it's easily the most valuable of the daedric artifacts

Comment #176 by TheWayneAdams
Thursday, May 31, 2012 @ 01:19:37 PM


Doesn't letting him live give you the Masque? The Rueful Axe isn't a Daedric artefact, you made the right choice not killing the dog.

49 out of 50 for ages cos of this bloody achievement. Didn't realise at the time but I refused to be a cannibal & killed the woman involved, then, again unwittingly, killed the orc woman whio start another of these quests. Screwed & so cant be bothered to start all over again.

agreeing with 182... this is BS... do you have to have the artifact to get the achievement? like at one point? cus i got one and i didnt realize it was a daedric artifact and i sold it... can i still get the achievement?

Comment #180 by intoeternity
Thursday, June 14, 2012 @ 11:22:45 PM

I'm on the mind of madness quest and it is the last one I need. I have done all daedric quests including nocturnal's thieves guild quest for the skeleton key. So when I started the quest I went to retrieve the key from the steward in the Blue Palace and he wouldn't give it to me. I searched for the cleaning maids or whoever they are and they are no where to be found. I did the quests for the steward as well as the dark brotherhood questline which makes sense as to why the steward wouldn't give me the key. Is there any way at all for me to get this or do I have to redo all the daedric quests from an earlier save file?

Elisif and Falk Firebeard suck, they refuse to give me the Pelagius Key. I completed man who cried wolf and wolf queen awakened and Elisifs war horn quest. THEY STILL DON'T LIKE ME, AND I AM NOT A MILK DRINKER! I think I accidentally killed Una and Erdi, how do i freaking do this?

Comment #183 by vintagegamer24
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 @ 11:05:34 AM

This is definitely the hardest achievement in the game (maybe level 50). These things are scattered everywhere and some you come across you might not even know. I would suggest reading these comments before getting the 15. I was lucky to pick right on a couple before I knew what was going on. Almost 250 hours in, just popped this yesterday.

finally got it :), I was lucky I had a save file at the time of my 9th daedric quest!

And I picked both items in I'll met by tonight quest, and instead of finishing with a night to remember! I finished with The cursed Tribe, and it worked :)

Thursday, August 02, 2012 @ 05:20:30 PM

@ 190. it depends on when you got the skeleton key. if its the first thing you get, unfortunatley you cant get the achievement, its terrible.
you also dont need to have the items present just as long as at somepoint you have had them.
seems like an easy thing to finsih, but there are so many things that can go wrong. im on my 3rd char to TRY and finish it finally.

Sunday, August 05, 2012 @ 09:14:02 PM

There's only 15 obtainable Daedric artifacts in this game, despite there being 16 Daedric princes in the game. The Skeleton Key, which you get temporarily during the Thieves' Guild quest chain, does not count towards this achievement. Just in case anyone was wondering, although I'm fairly certain it's been mentioned already.

Comment #192 by Cybelord8
Sunday, August 05, 2012 @ 09:19:57 PM

I would also like to note that in some of the Daedric quests, there are multiple options one can take. Depending on the option you choose, you may or may not get an artifact. I would suggest you look up a guide on each artifact just to be sure you don't end up screwing yourself over. There are also a few glitches found within the game that allows you to obtain two artifacts from the same quest. I know of two off the top of my head: the Dawnbreaker sword can be knocked off its pedestal with a powerful spell, allowing a duplicate to appear. During the Hircine quest chain, if you side with the werewolf, you get Hircine's ring after you kill all the other hunters. If you act quick enough(and get lucky enough, too) you can find the same guy running down a road. Kill him, and Hircine will bestow

Comment #193 by Nanman The Great One
Thursday, August 09, 2012 @ 07:27:50 PM

A tip that I have would be to save Vaermina for last. You have to get the Skull of Corruption to get the achievement but most people let the monk destroy it. Complete everybody else's quest then do hers, save sometime before the monk is about to destroy it and kill him. Then load it back up and let him destroy it. If done correctly, it should pop up.

@199 You have to go back and get the Savior's Hide. I had the 15 you have listed and didn't get the achievement. I went back and got the hide and the achievement popped. I don't think the Ring of Hircine counts for the 15.

Just save in crucial parts or before a main part and pay attention. follow the guide. its easy man

Well, I looked up a few guides to how to retrieve the Ebony Blade on Skyrim - first one that popped up stated that I needed to be part of the Stormcloak rebellion. Sh*t. I'm an Imperial. So I looked up guides on YouTube on how to obtain the Ebony Blade without the quest and I got my results. Later, after my OCD deleted previous game saves, I found out that I CANNOT finish the quest now because of that (finding out that I was able to even start it). I've tried doing the 'Weapons Rack' thing with this weapon and it doesn't work..

This is my last quest for completing my Skyrim achievements and 15 Deadric Quests. I am not wanting to completely restart a new game, as this achievement will haunt me. Is there any way I can finish this quest? :(

I remember searching for these... But I was also smart and bought the guide lol. It's a tricky achievement because if you decide to help someone or punish them, you could forfeit your artifact and screw yourself over. Like for the ring of hircine.. Don't kill the werewolf, help him and you will get the ring instead of the stupid wolf skin armor. Kill the loser for mehrunes Dagon and he will give you the dagger, let him live and you get nothing. Do what it takes, and actually listen to the dialogue for once instead of just hulk smashing everything. People wonder why this game is so hard, maybe because a brain is required for it lol!

SPOILER ALERT: I have had troble with this achievement as there are a few things that can mess up rather easy, as there are many posts here on the matter i can only sum up that just doing the quests is not enough you have to have the right ending on certain quests to get the right item needed here is a list of said items and what is needed to be done:

Azura's Star from the quest The Black Star.To get Azura's star you have to take Broken Azura's Star to Aranea Ienith at Azura's alter giving it to Nelacar at The Frozen Hearth inn. will give you The Black Star (( Said the black star works too but no confirms ))

Dawnbreaker from the quest The Break of Dawn.

Ebony Blade from the quest The Whispering Door.

Ebony Mail from the quest Boethiah's Calling.

Mace of Molag Bal from

Comment #210 by Omega VLLL
Friday, November 23, 2012 @ 06:51:57 PM

Mace of Molag Bal from the quest House of Horrors. It can only be obtained if the Dragonborn obeys Molag Bal and lets Logrolf the Willful go to Markarth, and get trapped by Molag Bal, instead of straight out killing him.

Masque of Clavicus Vile from the quest A Daedra's Best Friend. It is only obtained if Barbas is spared.

Mehrunes' Razor from the quest Pieces of the Past. It is only obtained if Silus Vesuius is killed.

Oghma Infinium from the quest Discerning the Transmundane.

Ring of Namira from the quest The Taste of Death. It is only obtained if Eola is cooperated with.

Sanguine Rose from the quest A Night to Remember.

Skull of Corruption from the quest Waking Nightmare. It is only obtained if Erandur is killed.

Spellbreaker from the quest The Only Cure.


Comment #211 by Omega VLLL
Friday, November 23, 2012 @ 06:55:11 PM

Volendrung from the quest The Cursed Tribe. It is only obtained if the Dragonborn does not attack any of the Orcs in Largashbur (unless out of self-defense).

Wabbajack from the quest The Mind of Madness.

The quest Ill Met By Moonlight. Has a Glitch to get both items so all is not lost if you messed up one of the quests (( like i did... and both count to the achi))
Tricking Sinding into believing that the Dragonborn is helping him by killing the hunters, then meeting Hircine outside will provide his blessing and the ring. Afterwards, re-entering the grotto, killing and skinning Sinding (he will be in werewolf form), will make Hircine appear thus allowing the Dragonborn to obtain the Savior's Hide. Both items count toward the achievement: Oblivion Walker, making the achievement obta

Friday, November 23, 2012 @ 06:57:26 PM

Oblivion Walker, making the achievement obtainable even if another Daedric quest is failed.

There are 16 total artifacts you can ONLY AFFORD TO LOOSE ONE OF THEM. If you loose 1 your fine you still can hav 15 but if you loose 2 say goodbye to the achievement. You need 15 out of 16 artifacts. I accidently sold my Ring of Hircinne so yeah I can't loose anyother artifact like Dawnbreaker Morgal Bal or the Ebony Blade.

In doing this, refer to any Skyrim wiki guide or other in doing the Daedra quests. With each item (I missed this on the first playthrough because you CANNOT sell any or get rid of them) store them in a chest in your house. Make sure you keep each item until you get the achievement.

Using the glitch to get the Ring of Hircine and Savior's Hide doesn't count for two Daedric artifacts, the only one I didn't get was the Skull of Corruption quest and the achievement didn't pop until I finished it, despite having 15 artifacts prior to completing it.

Hey was wondering if you guys coul help me, I am questioning on whether to complete the rest of the daedric quests because I do not think I will get the achievement because. Lod the blacksmith in Falkreath who begins the "A Daedra's Best Friend" Daedric quest is dead. He died because of a dragon attack early in the game and I did not know he was important in the future. Anyway, I read that when doing the "Ill Met By Moonlight" quest you can acquire two daedric artifacts, so I did do that. My question is. Will I get the Oblivion Walker Achievement if I collect 15 daedric artifacts but I did not complete one of the daedric quests, so I would have completed 14 daedric quests but have 15 artifacts. Would I still get the achievement, or is it a waste of time?

Right after this I finished up Mehrunes’ Razor and then got "Daedric Influence" achievement...

Personally, I had to collect all 16 before the achievement would pop. I was very careful and ensured that I selected the correct choices and subsequent rewards with each quest. (I collected the ring and the savior's hide in the quest where you could gain two artifacts. That didn't matter. Achievement didn't pop until I was rewarded the Wabbajack, which became the 16th Daedric artifact in my inventory.) I would highly recommend not missing any of these quests. If I had, I would have been out of luck.

I just finished all of the Daedric quests but the achievement didn't pop. Any solutions?

PS I made sure to get the Mask of Clavicus Vile, Skull of Corruption, Skeleton Key, and Mehrunes Razor

Just got this cheevo after picking up my 14th artefact. I guess im just a lucky boy after reading some of the comments on this thread.

I haven't come across any major glitches as of yet apart from a quest to do with the Winterhold college quests (mage guild), but just reloaded game and it worked.

what I did was to store the artefacts in breezehome in whiterun, buy from the jarl for 5k, pimp your house out with extras and just store all your crap including artefacts, but in a separate chest, drawer.

obtain the saviour hide aswell as the ring of namira and like it did for me, pop after picking up ebony mail, which was the 14th daedric quest I did.

Finished getting 15 artifacts and no cheevo pop! Quest page says I finished 15 Daedric quests which included ALL THE PROPER items, however, I only took Hircine's Ring, not the Skin.

So I went back to the Grotta where you go after Sinding, but couldn't find him. Decided to go back to Falkreath where I originally started the quest. And sure enough, in werewolf form, he's back in jail. I talked to him (which was just some electronic static) and booked it out of the room before the convo ended and he spawns with me outside the door.

I kill him, tear his skin off, talk to Hircine and receive the armor.

BLINK, "Oblivion Walker," fist pump for a solid 30 seconds.......

....I hate being an achievement whore.

do you have to have all the items at one time or just acquire it at some point during the play through?

Comment #252 by tazlik2fly52
Monday, July 01, 2013 @ 11:15:10 AM

@251 no you don't need to have them on you. the only one I had was the ring of hircine(sp?) the rest were spread over 3 houses either in chests or on weapon racks. did have to use #250's method. only difference to get the skin was I had to kill him in the cell as he wouldn't do the spawn outside the door deal. took a couple tries to get body to fall close enough to loot.

Because i sold a couple of them and if i can't sell them well then i'm screwed.

I collected all of them except the hide, (I got the ring) but the achievement didn't pop. So I did as #250 did, I went back to the Falkreath jail and there was werewolf man in the cell. He was trapped in there unmoving, but when I left, he miraculously followed me. I then killed him, skinned him, and talked to the daedra and I finally got the cursed achievement, hope this helps.

I completed all 15 quests and ensured I got all of the "Missable" artifacts. After the 15th I did not get the achievement. I reloaded and went back to just before doing Ill Met By Moonlight, re-did the remaining artifacts, wrapping up with Ill Met by Moonlight, and then used the glitch to get both. With 16 artifacts I got the achievement. Not sure if it matters, but I got the skeleton key at some point in between starting the various artifacts quests (I am NOT counting the key as one of the artifacts).

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 @ 09:09:47 AM

The tip for getting two artifacts in one quest helped me as I didnt destroy the skull. I actually got three artifacts on that quest as I also kept the cursed ring but I dont think it counts to the 15 total

I just registered here to post at this achievement. Sorry for my bad english :P

i figured out a bug i think? i did the quest with the dog to get "Masque of Clavicus Vile" as my FIRST daedric quest and i did not get the "Daedric Influence" achievement.
i got it at my second daedric quest (the drinking game one).
after all quests were done and i had 15/15 artefacts nothing popped up.
i reloaded an earlyer save with my last quest to get both "Savior’s Hide" and "the Ring of Hirscine" (first helping the werewolf, then kill him) so i got 16/15 artefacts, and the achievement directly popped up.
i guess something went wrong with the masque in my first daedric questline. hope this helps someone before rerolling a new game ;-)

Sunday, April 20, 2014 @ 04:13:34 PM

If you are attempting to get both the Savior’s Hide and the Ring of Hirscine it won't count as two. I saved this for the last knowing that it'll count as two in the end, but once I got both artifacts it only counted as one. I had thirteen other artifacts when I got these two (13+2=15), but no achievement popped out.

does this have to bee across one character? or can it be achieved across multiples? probly a silly question but...worth a shot

Comment #270 by Spiderrichard
Saturday, May 10, 2014 @ 08:28:03 PM

When doing the quest to get Savior’s Hide (or the Ring of Hirscine) make sure kill the beast asap. I left it for a bit and the beast spawned out of bounds and was impossible to kill. i can't complete the quest and don't have a save that goes back far enough. pretty stupid of me only having three save i know :(

Comment #271 by HeroJH
Sunday, May 11, 2014 @ 03:12:13 AM

I blew this one. One of the dungeons had the artifact, and you get a choice, to kill the guy and take the artifact or let him free. Something like that. I chose to be a nice guy and I therefore miss out on this achievement. Gah!

Comment #274 by ElementalWeapon
Friday, May 30, 2014 @ 02:26:31 PM

Yes it is glitched. I had 14/15 artifacts and left the Ill Met by Moonlight quest for last. After I finished the quest and had 15 artifacts, nothing happened. I reloaded my save and killed both the hunters and the werewolf this time to get both the hide and the ring instead of just one of them. After I got both items and stood at 16 total artifacts, he achievement popped.

Sunday, June 01, 2014 @ 08:23:56 PM

Level 80 and didn't get this achievement. I had 14 artifacts (I let the guy live instead of getting the razor). Make sure you always do what the Deadra ask of you (evil option) and have them all on one character.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 @ 10:43:55 PM

got 15 artifacts (I took the Savior's hide, read too late that I could have both) and no achievement but didn't do the thieves yet

will try to run the thieves soon to see if the key count as the 16 unofficial daedric (many people tells it is)

I got all 15 artifact, not kill Barbas, not read the book of Oghma Infinium

Go back to Bloated Man's Grotto, and kill Sinding for the Savior's Hide.
I literally just got this an hour ago. I was stuck once I got my 15th artifact so I went and did that and I got the achievement. Hope that helps!

There are 16 artifacts. But the masque of Clavicus Vile is bugged if Dawnguard is installed so you MUST get the ring and the hide.

Saturday, September 03, 2016 @ 10:24:39 AM

The achievement only popped for me After getting "saviors hide" and "the Ring of hircine". Luckily if You only get the Ring, You seem to be able to get the hide AT any time. I revisited the cave where sinding was hiden over 100 gaming hours after i finished the quest and I was still able to kill him. Then the achievement popped.
