"Folklore abounds about this flower found in the swamps of Hjaalmarch. Some stories claim it grows where unfortunate deaths have taken place, others insist it grows first and then lures unsuspecting people and animals to their doom. I have found no direct evidence to support these stories; indeed I found the flowers difficult to locate at all. While it is most well-known for it's use in poisons, it would be remiss to overlook that the blooms of the deathbell are very effective in mixtures for boosting ones Alchemy skill."
Agneta Falia[src]

Deathbell is a useful ingredient for the creation of poisons. Damage health poisons using deathbell create stronger results than most other ingredients with the same effect. It also provides an excellent base for additional effects, such as the weakness to poison, which will amplify the effects of damage health.


Few and Far BetweenEdit

Ingun Black-Briar, an apprentice alchemist, sends the Dragonborn on an errand to collect 20 deathbell, 20 nirnroot, and 20 nightshade to help replenish her mentor's dwindling supply.

The Only CureEdit

Kesh the Clean, a worshiper of Peryite, sends the Dragonborn on a quest to retrieve a deathbell, some vampire dust, a flawless ruby, and a silver ingot so that he may commune with Peryite.



  • Deathbell is one of the few ingredients to only have negative effects.
