It comes from a rare poisonous plant found only on the island of Stros M'Kai. The potency of the poison is such that ingesting the root leads to nearly instant death.
Astrid will give the Dragonborn one sample during To Kill An Empire in the Dark Brotherhood quest line. It is supposed to be used during the assassination quest, however as this is the only sample that is obtainable, the target may be killed by other means and the root saved for later.
While closely resembling Canis Root in appearance, Jarrin Root has no actual plant data of its own and therefore cannot be planted in a garden or greenhouse in Hearthfire making it unreplenishable without using Console Commands.
UsefulnessEditCombining Jarrin Root together with ingredients such as Crimson Nirnroot and Glow Dust or a Human Heart and Blisterwort will create a devastating poison. With a high Alchemy skill, the right alchemist perks and Fortify Alchemy enchantments, the damage done by Jarrin Root poison can number in the thousands, rendering it capable of instantly killing many powerful characters or enemies.
Because only one sample exists, it is advisable to first complete the quest "A Return To Your Roots" as the reward will grant the active power Sinderion's Serendipity, a power which gives a 25% chance of receiving two potions when working at the alchemy lab. This makes it possible to create two vials of potent poisons.
If you then also have the Alchemy skill tree perk Concentrated Poison, and have got two poisons with the help of Sinderion's Serendipity, you can use this poison 4 times.
