The Centurion Dynamo Core is found in Dwemer ruins and on the bodies of Dwarven Centurions, serving as their power source. They are one of several difficult-to-obtain items needed to conjure Daedric armor and Daedric weapons at the Atronach Forge.



  • The centurion dynamo core has a red glow and aura emanating from it and the ball in the center constantly rotates.
  • Three can be found inside centurions that respawn in Blackreach. This is one of the fastest ways to get them since the Blackreach lifts are directly connected to the surface, and the centurions are located close to the lifts.
  • In Arkngthamz (part of the Dawnguard add-on), a Centurion Dynamo Core is obtainable from a Centurion located in a large cavern found immediately before the first Aetherium Shard. Two more can be found on shelves to either side of the first Aetherium Shard.
  • One may be found behind a Shutter in Shalidor's Maze.
  • Can rarely be found on a Dwarven Sphere.
  • Can rarely be found on high-level Falmer.
  • In the Dragonborn add-on, three dynamo cores are required to access the final chamber inside Fahlbtharz. There is one already on one of the pedestals, but the other two are with the two Dwarven Centurions, which the player has to destroy. However cores may be brought with the player to avoid this fight.
  • They can very rarely be found on Dwarven Ballistae.
  • The Dynamo core spins infinitely, and is almost undoubtedly a source of perpetual energy to power the centurion.
