"Lurkers are thought to be native to the murky waters of Hermaeus Mora's realm of Apocrypha."
Loading Screens[src]

Lurkers are a species of Daedra found in the Planes of Oblivion known as Apocrypha. They typically serve Hermaeus Mora, but Miraak took control of some of them during his stay in this realm.

LocationsEdit

Lurkers can be seen throughout Apocrypha, usually guarding tomes of forbidden knowledge, though they can also be Randomly encountered on Solstheim attacking the local wildlife and populace. Lurkers will also appear when the Dragonborn cleanses the stones that have been corrupted by Miraak by using the Bend Will shout on them. This is obtained by doing the quests The Fate of the Skaal and Cleansing the Stones during the Dragonborn questline.

LootEdit

Lurkers usually carry leveled gold and enchanted jewelery. Often they carry a unit or two of netch leather and may also drop slaughterfish eggs.

CombatEdit

A Lurker's melee attacks consist of swipes with its claws and the use of their large legs for stomping attacks, which can stagger opponents. It also causes a mass of poisonous, writhing tentacles to appear at the base of its foot. The poison damage is equivalent to that of the effect Lingering Damage Health. They can extend tentacles from their mouths for an attack called "Lurker Spray" which causes 8 points of damage. They also have a ranged attack called "Acid Spit" which deals between 10 and 20 points of damage over 5 seconds. Some of their attack animations are similar to giants.

TriviaEdit

  • Although they cannot be conjured, the Bend Will shout can be used to make them temporary allies.
  • Lurkers will appear during the quest Cleansing the Stones, and this can be quite a critical time as there are usually NPCs around the stone that will attack the Lurker, and have no chance of killing it. This is most prevalent when cleansing the Earth Stone just outside Raven Rock.
  • Like other creatures associated with Hermaeus Mora, Lurkers appears to have been inspired by the Deep Ones from H. P. Lovecraft's Cthuthu Mythos.
  • Lurkers have also been seen using the same club-across-the-shoulders stance as giants. However, they do this without the club.
  • Two or Three Lurkers may come out of the ocean near the Beast Stone.
  •  PC   Lurker Slime is an acquirable spell via console command, the base ID is 0301ae98.
