Prowler's Profit is an ability found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The ability is granted upon the completion of the quest "No Stone Unturned."


Prowler's Profit greatly increases the chance of finding multiple precious gems in chests, burial urns, corpses etc. Usually, one of these containers can yield about 2–4 gems of any type, and with high values. On rare occasions, only a single gem will spawn; however, the gem type will still be randomly determined. Gems found are also governed somewhat by the player's level when searching a container; the higher the level, the more Flawless-type gems will be found.
