Arvak's Skull is an item found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.
Arvak's skull can be found east of the Boneyard entrance where Valerica is found. It will be on a pedestal surrounded by ghosts that turn into mistmen and will attack should the Dragonborn come close.
Returning the skull to the owner will allow the Dragonborn to learn the spell Summon Arvak.
This section contains bugs related to Arvak's Skull. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Summon Arvak and finishing the quest. It is no longer considered a quest item, however, which would allow it to be removed from the inventory through normal means (e.g. selling it to merchants, dropping it, storing it in a container). Sometimes, the skull does not get automatically removed from the inventory after learning
- Getting off Arvak near the barrier where Valerica is located in the Soul Cairn may cause the dismount animation to glitch your character through the barrier and put you on Valerica's side.
