Searching the most valuable items is what it takes to be a rich dude with a stockpile of Gold in Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. These items are rare and hence are the most valuable.

You can either wear them for a boost of certain skill or you can sell them for good money. Eitherway, first you will have to find them, and if you are up for the task, these locations will get you started!

For more help on Skyrim, read our Unique Weapons and Unique Armor Locations guide.

    • Elite Skyrim

      There is also the ‘Dawnbreaker’ which is a leveled 1h-sword that gives extra fire damage to Draugr and has a chance to trigger a fiery explosion after killing a Draugr. You must complete a Daedric quest near the top of the map.
      Look up ‘Dawnbreaker Skyrim’ for full details :)
      (Hope this helps)

      Sorry, Its to the right, it’s called Shearpoint, but beware, there is a dragon there as well and Krosis isn’t weak either.

    • Qbrain

      I found Krosis’Mask 20% bonus to archery and two other stats, It’s near a dragon lair a little to the left from the middle of the map.

      The \Speelbreaker\ artifact is incorrect, whether due to language barriers or typing too fast. It should read:
      Spellbreaker
      Location. Do quest from Shrine to Peryite through Bthardamz.
      Complete the Daedric Quest ”The Only Cure” to receive this item. You get 50 points of magic absorb while blocking.

      Also– is this a \rare items\ guide or a \unique items/artifacts\ guide? The list contains a few of each, very far from all, and multiple errors such as the one I’ve pointed out (though this one was the most obvious to me)

      • http://segmentnext.com Zawad Iftikhar

        Correction the mistake you pointed out – and yes, it’s a mix of both World… being unique some of these items are very rare.
