18 Most Expensive Items In Skyrim, Ranked

If a player has enough Septims, they can buy some powerful but expensive things in Skyrim.

A classic role-playing game, Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is still loved by many. And Skyrim is a huge, strange place full of things that want to kill the main character. But if the Dragonborn can handle it all, there are lots of riches and adventures waiting for them. It’s a trip that never ends, with many quests, many outcomes, and many Septims.

What are the most expensive things that Skyrim fans can buy? Prices change between sellers and depend on the quality of the materials used. However, these prices are based on what sellers charge when you reach level 22 in Speech. Basic materials are used to figure out how much potions and spells are worth. The more rare and expensive the ingredients, the more valuable a home-made potion or spell may be. Taking all of that into account, here are some of the most expensive things that characters can buy in this very northern part of Tamriel.

Deadly Magicka Poison, 465 Septims

You can find the Deadly Magicka Poison in the Skyrim city of Falkreath at the alchemy shop called Grave Concoctions. You can also make it at an alchemy table. People shouldn’t be fooled by the shop’s name, though, because this is a great place for all of your chemistry needs.

When this poison is put on a weapon and hit, it takes 130 points away from the target’s Magicka. There is nothing worse for a mage than running out of Magicka, so this is great for fighters who fight a lot of mages in Skyrim.

Elixir Of Strength, 570 Septims

You can find potions all over the place or use alchemy to make your own. On bookcase shelves, in chests, or even on the bodies of all the people who have tried to kill the famous Dragonborn but failed.

But the Elixir of Strength is one of the most expensive elixirs in Skyrim that you can buy in shops. The Alchemy shop, Angeline’s Aromatics, or Grave Concoctions in Falkreath are all places in Solitude where you can find this item. For 300 seconds, this potion makes carrying 60 times faster, making it great for drinking deep in a dungeon.

Nightweaver’s Band, 1131 Septims

Skyrim, Nighteaver's Band, item list

Some great things happen when you join the Dark Brotherhood. The sweet items are one of the main ones. In this case, a chain that shines. The “Recipe for Disaster” Dark Brotherhood quest is the only way to get this ring.

The Nightweaver’s Band is especially useful for killers who need to stay hidden because it is linked to this well-known assassins’ guild. It gives the player 25% more Sneak skill and 25% less Destruction spell cost.

Banish Enchantment, 1200 Septims

Skyrim each soul gem in a line

Since enchantments are taken from weapons and gear and put on other things, the player can’t make or buy this unless they buy a weapon that already has it. If you put it on the wrong piece of gear or weapon, it can change its worth. Also, items that have other valuable enchantments on them, like Paralyze, can make them even more valuable.

This is a Conjuration school spell that can be added to a weapon to make it send Daedric beings to a different realm as soon as it hits its target. They are easier to avoid, safer, and faster to fight, but it’s not as exciting.

Ebony Armor, 1500 Septims

Ebony Warrior Skyrim

There’s no need to spend the cash on the set because it’s worth a lot in Septims no matter where it’s found or made. Remember that you need at least level 80 Smithing to make it and at least level 30 to use it. You won’t be able to buy it in shops or from blacksmiths until you reach level 40.

After a while, every character in Skyrim puts on this four-piece set of armor, both because it looks great and because it gives great buffs.

Daedric Helmet, 1600 Septims

The standard Daedric armor is a great replacement for enchanted armor, and the Daedric Helmet is the most expensive base helmet in the whole Skyrim area. It only weighs 15 pounds and has a protection of 25, which is pretty good.

But there is a catch: to get to the merchant, the player must own the Dragonborn downloadable material and finish a quest called “Black Book: Untold Legends.” They’re called the Dremora Merchant, and they sell this great gear.

Potion of Waterbreathing, 1890 Septoms

This useful potion also boosts the character’s health and energy, which is all part of the fun of exploring dungeons and spelunking in Skyrim. You can buy it from some places, but if you have the fixings, it’s cheaper to make yourself.

This potion is important because it can be used for many things and the recipe is hard to follow. You need a boar tusk, salmon roe, and fungus stalks, which you can only get from certain Khajit traders as part of the Rare Curios content.

Amulet of Articulation, 2050 Septims

Skyrim Mjoll Romance

It’s worth around 2,000 Septims, but that depends on who you ask in Skyrim. The change is also caused by the fact that this item can have a number of different designs. Players can get it from Brynjolf’s body when they finish the Thieves Guild questline, or they can choose not to take over from the previous managers.

This useful tool looks great, makes their Persuasion skill work, and gives their Speech skill a boost of up to 35 points. That can help you in more ways than just getting good deals from sellers and traders.

Stalhrim BattleAxe, 2150 Septims

The Stalhrim BattleAxe is one of the best base weapons in Skyrim. For people who are good with two-handed weapons but haven’t found a good magical weapon yet, this is it. The Stalhrim Battleaxe is very good for an unenchanted weapon because it only weighs 25 pounds and does 27 damage.

You can buy this weapon in a few places. The blacksmith in the town of Skald sells Stalhrim weapons, as does Glover Mallory, who is in Raven Rock, which is close to Solstheim.

Eye of the Falmer, 2500 Septims

Skyrim Falmer In The Dark

Not really, because this poor race doesn’t have any eyes. This really is a huge gem, and it’s one of the most valuable random things in Tunnel Rush. It’s worth 2500 Septims and can only be used to look huge.

Most adventurers would guess that there is a left eye and a right eye, and in Septims, they are both worth the same. You can find them in different places, but they are both part of the same quest, which is called “Blindsided.” It looks like the Falmer never get a break.

Stalhrim Warhammer, 2850 Septims

When it comes to damage, the Stalhrim Warhammer is 29 points, which is a bit more than the Stalhrim Battleaxe’s 29 points. Stalhrim is a great tool for people who like to destroy things. It’s not as good as Daedric or Ebony, but players can get it much faster, so it’s a good choice until they get something better.

Like the battleaxe, only a few places sell Stalhrim gear. The forge at Raven Rock, Skald, is the easiest to get to. It is sold somewhere else, but this one depends on players having sided with the Nords throughout their trip. Thirsk Hall will also sell Stalhrim gear if the main character joins their side.

Archmage’s Robes, 3265 Septims

Players get these robes as a prize at the end of “The Eye of Magnus” quest. They are lined with soft fur and have blue and gray embroidery on them. The new Archmage now has the old Archmage’s rank, property, and living quarters, among other things. The buffs and perks are what make these robes worth the 3260 synas they are worth.

The person has 50% more Magicka, it takes 20% less Magicka to cast magic, and Magicka heals itself 150% faster. A wardrobe that fits the Archmage of Winterhold.

Daedric Armor, 7650 Septims

Daedric Armor is the best heavy armor for people who only wear the best. However, players can only buy it if they have the Dragonborn DLC and have finished the “Black Book: Untold Legends quest.” After this is done, the movable Dremora Merchant can be used to buy Daedric gear.

Even though Daedric Armor is heavy at 50, its 52 defense makes up for it. This is the best thing to buy, especially if players want to feel like they’re surrounded by demons.

Daedric Armor Of Peerless Destruction, 12242 Septims

Daedric Armor of Peerless Destruction vendor price Skyrim

Because the Daedric is the best type of armor, players want to get enchanted Daedric armor. Magicka recovery isn’t good for a player who only uses brute strength, but enchanted armor can be great depending on the type of enchantment the player wants.

This is 50 points heavy and 52 points strong. But this armor is very pricey because it has an enchantment that makes Destruction powers 25% cheaper to cast, which is great for a Battlemage. If players are lucky enough to find the Daedric Armor of Peerless Destruction at the Dremora Merchant, they should buy it.

Daedric Armor Of Revival, 14103 Septims

Daedric Armor of Revival vendor price Skyrim

The Daedric Armor of Revival is the best Daedric armor that players can get from the Dremora Merchant. It has a great enchantment that makes it heal 50% faster than normal. Great for people who don’t like using potions. It has a defense of 52 and weighs 50.

This armor is great for players who like to fight first and ask questions later, and who don’t rely on sneak attacks or long-range attacks to get an early edge. If you want this armor, you’ll have to be lucky for it to show up in the Dremora Merchants’ stock. However, new things do come out every two days.

Daedric Battleaxe of Annihilating, 20552 Septims

Daedric Battleaxe of Annihilating vendor price Skyrim

The Warhammer type is the best weapon that players can get from the Dremora Merchant. The Daedric Battleaxe of Annihilating is the second best. The magic of this weapon is that it sends back to Oblivion any Summoned Daedra up to level 36. It weighs 27 pounds and does 28 harm.

While it may not be the best of its kind, if players see this with the Dremora Merchant, it’s the best thing they can use until they find something better or a Warhammer type. This is one of the Annihilating enchanted guns, so it costs a lot.

Daedric Warhammer of Annihilating, 24320 Septims

Daedric Warhammer of Annihilating vendor price Skyrim

The finest weapon in Skyrim costs the most: the Daedric Warhammer of Annihilating. It’s 31 pounds heavy and does 30 harm. Because of the magic on it, any Summoned Daedra up to level 36 are sent back to Oblivion.

If a person wants this powerful Warhammer, they might get lucky and find it with the Dremora Merchant. This Banish upgrade is the strongest one you can find on any item you’ve bought. But this weapon starts to be used by other people in Skyrim when the Dragonborn hit level 53, so don’t expect to be able to buy it from the Dremora Merchant before then.

Proudspire Manor, 25000 Septims

Skyrim Proudspire Manor

In Elder Scrolls Online, there is a version of this house that costs more than a million Septims. This house’s starting price is more than fair. What about Skyrim? This is one of the most expensive homes the character can buy, and it can cost up to 11,000 more to make it better with furniture, decorations, and other nice things.

Having the right neighbors is very important, and this luxurious house in Solitude gives the character a chance to show off everything they own in style. The Bard’s College and the homes of the Imperial nobles, like Vittoria Vici’s next door, are close by.
