Dwemer Artifacts are metal objects made by the Dwemer that are usually found within Dwemer ruins, either found on the bodies of slain Animunculi or just lying around. The artifacts come in various shapes and sizes, and all are made of the mysterious Dwemer metal, and be smelted down into Dwarven Metal Ingots for making Dwarven Armor. These ingots can only be created by smelting Dwemer artifacts, as it is not possible to mine the ore. Dwemer artifacts are quite heavy though, so bringing along a follower to play "pack-mule" is advised for treasure-hunting players.
Not all of the artifacts can be smelted down such as kitchenware items. They can however be sold off to merchants for a decent price, or placed on shelves for decoration.
List of Artifacts
These items can be used in a smelter to create dwarven metal ingots. Unlike smeltable ores, each of the listed Dwemer scrap pieces can create multiple dwarven metal ingots. While the smallest piece yields only two ingots, the largest produces five.
