Oblivion Walker

Oblivion Walker is an achievement/trophy in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. To obtain it, 15 Daedric artifacts must be collected. Note that due to updates, one need only to have possessed 15 Artifacts (not including the Skeleton Key). They don't all need to be in the inventory, or even in possession, one just needs to have finished the requisite quests and obtained the items at some point. For example, one can read the Oghma Infinium without penalty.

There are 17 Daedric artifacts that can be obtained on one save file in Skyrim, but the Skeleton Key does not count toward this achievement/trophy.

Daedric ArtifactsEdit

Missable Daedric ArtifactsEdit

There are 6 Daedric artifacts that could be accidentally passed up on:


  •  PC   360   PS3  The Masque of Clavicus Vile, as well as any other type of apparel, can be duplicated using the mannequin duplication exploit. However, these do not count towards the oblivion walker achievement due to the achievement requiring 15 different daedric artifacts.


  •  PC   360   PS3  Some players fail to receive the achievement after collecting 15 valid daedric artifacts (as in, artifacts that count towards attaining the achievement, such as the Masque of Clavicus Vile). If Ring of Hircine was obtained instead of Savior's Hide during "Ill Met By Moonlight", the achievement might unlock if the player returns to Bloated Man's Grotto and kills Sinding. For those of conscience, saving before killing Sindling will allow the player to reload after the achievement/trophy has been awarded. At which point Hircine should appear and award the 16th artifact - Savior's Hide. No other fix or workaround is known as of patch 1.9.


  • Note that although there are 17 Daedric artifacts in the game, two are technically mutually exclusive (The Ring of Hircine and The Savior's Hide), and one does not count towards the achievement (The Skeleton Key). Therefore, you cannot miss a single artifact in order to earn this achievement. If you accidentally waste the opportunity to obtain one, reload immediately.
  •  360   PS3   Ring of Hircine and Savior's Hide are counted as different artifacts. Therefore, if the glitch is used to obtain both artifacts during Ill Met by Moonlight, Oblivion Walker can be obtained if only one artifact has been missed.
  • If the Dragonborn doesn't pick up Volendrung at the end of the quest and fast-travels somewhere else, it can either be found lying on the ground behind the altar, or it has disappeared and will not count towards Oblivion Walker.
  • All Daedric artifacts must be obtained on the same character, not spread throughout multiple.
