Daedra Hearts are the key ingredient used in crafting Daedric armor and Daedric weapons at the blacksmith forge, and can also be used to create potions. They are relatively rare and quite valuable. However, some alchemy shops carry them and refresh stock every couple of days or so.
With the use of the Sigil stone, Daedra hearts can be created by using the Atronach forge in the Midden under the College of Winterhold by putting one human heart and a black soul gem (filled or not) in the offering box, then using the pullbar to create a Daedra heart. They are a deeper red color than the usual human heart.
A few are found in quests to obtain Daedric artifacts, while others can be found in random apothecary satchels and on necromancers. They can also be obtained as loot by killing Daedra. A few Daedra can often be found at the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon. These daedra respawn every 10 in-game days and are a quick way to get these.
- Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon, during and after Pieces of the Past every time they spawn. Four Dremora, (two inside, two outside), each has a Daedra heart. The four Dremora respawn once each in-game 10 days.
- Enthir, at the College of Winterhold, usually has two and restocks every two days.
- He must be met in his room on the second floor of the Hall of Attainment, (first room on the left). The option to barter with him may be lost if Enthir is not approached before the College of Winterhold questline is completed. This issue will fix itself after the Thieves Guild questline is completed.
- College of Winterhold questline has been completed, wearing the archmage's robes when talking with him will fix the issue. If Enthir has never been bartered with, and the
- Jorrvaskr. In the room where Kodlak is found, on or near a plate on the desk.

- No longer accessible if Dawnguard is installed as the hall will be burned to the ground. (Can still be accessed by using the coc command "coc hallofthevigilant01")(It is accessible after installation of Dawnguard but player should not begin the add-on)
- If The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard is installed, one can be found in Valerica's Study (in Castle Volkihar), which is full of various alchemy ingredients. The heart is on the shelf with a vase pressed right against its side, in the corner that has four shelves within it; just a few feet from the entrance to the Soul Cairn. For future visits, fast traveling to Castle Volkihar Balcony and opening the door to Valerica's Study from there is far faster than making your way through the castle every time, as the study is the furthest spot within the castle from the main entrance.
- Babette, in the Dark Brotherhood sanctuary, usually has 1-2 Daedra hearts.
