I’ve learned quite a bit of smithing now and just started to be able to create Daedric armor and weapons. But now I noticed that I need Daedra hearts as an ingredients to create those.
Where can I find some Daedra to rip their hearts out and make some armor and weapons out of them?
Daedra hearts are a rare drop from Daedra mobs: Atronachs and Dremoras. They will not drop from conjured Daedra, though: so no farming your conjured servants. Good places to find Daedra are during the Daedric quests The Black Star and Pieces of the Past.
In addition to that:
- One can be stolen from the Nightcaller Temple in the Daedric quest Waking Nightmare
- One can be stolen from Kodiak’s room in Jorrvaskr in Whiterun
- Enthir in Winterhold College sells 2 every 48 hours at a huge premium
- They will rarely show up for sale on random vendors throughout the world
The Wikia suggests a few other places as well:
- Alchemists in Orc Camps will sell 2-3 of them
- Babette at the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary
- One at Hall of the Vigilant directly south of Dawnstar and near Red Road Pass where a giant exists
- Random chance to be on any of several vendors in Markarth Side
