Dragontooth Crater is a dragon's lair located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. A Word Wall for Elemental Fury and a chest are here, guarded by a dragon.


If the quest "Dragon Rising" has not been completed, this area will be populated by a few Forsworn and a Hagraven along with Forsworn tents and a bloody altar. If the quest has been completed, a dragon will be present with a dead Hagraven nearby.

There may be as many as three dragons in and near this area.

Notable LootEdit

  1. Chest next to the Word Wall
  2. Expert locked chest in broken tower directly north from Word Wall (on the second level past the hole in the floor)
  3. Imperial Light Armor set (minus Shield) on a corpse just south of the tower



  • Because the word wall is so close to the cliff face behind it, the dragon that appears here cannot sit on top of it. This makes the dragon lie down on the ground instead.
  • There is a spawn location at the bottom of the hill along the path to the location. If the Dragonborn fast travels to Dragontooth Crater, be aware that traveling down the hill will cause the spawn location to activate. The location can spawn anything from a harmless mad person babbling about the Wabberjack or peddler to a group of Forsworn or Blood Horkers. If groups of enemies spawn, this could be harmful if a high-level dragon is already being fought.
  • Sometimes, when fast traveling to this location, a dead Hagraven will appear at the Dragonborn's feet.
