Arvak's Skull is an item found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.

It is a quest item for the miscellaneous quest "Find Arvak's Skull", which in turn would allow the Dragonborn to obtain the horse, Arvak

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:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  •  PC   360   PS3  Sometimes, the skull does not get automatically removed from the inventory after learning 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).
  • 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.
