"Quicksilver ore is rare. Worth digging"

Quicksilver Ore is used to make Quicksilver Ingots at a Smelter. Once made into ingots, requiring 2 Ores to make 1 ingot, it is used to create Elven armor and Elven weapons.  With the Dragonborn DLC, it's also used for making Nordic Weapons and Nordic armor.

Quicksilver can be rare and hard to find from shopkeepers, in nature, and when just starting out. It becomes more frequent as the adventurer meets Elven craft-wearers and becomes more proficient in blacksmithing.

There is an ore trader in Dawnstar that will buy Quicksilver Ore at 25 gold a piece.

Quicksilver ore veins can be mined with a Pickaxe to obtain quicksilver ore. Each vein mined has a chance to produce a precious gem.


Quicksilver Ore can be purchased from Blacksmith merchants or found:

  • 5 veins and 2 ores (one on the bottom floor, one on a shelf of the second level) in Quicksilver Mine near the docks of Dawnstar.
  • 1 vein Southwest of Shimmermist Cave, northwest of Graywinter Watch, north from where the river pools.  About a quarter of the way between Shimmermist Cave, moving torwards Battle-Born Farm.
  • Northeast of The Serpent Stone below an ice cliff. This location is very close to end of the map.
  • 1 vein south of Fort Amol, very near to the exit of Darkwater Pass (in the mountain area), located on the island beside the waterfall.
  • 1 vein southeast of Tolvald's Cave, up the mountain slope, next to a Snowberry bush.
  • 1 vein due south of Fort Greymoor, up against the foot of the mountain range.
  • 1 vein east of and up the mountain a bit from Ironbind Overlook, an unmarked mountainous exit from Ironbind Barrow. The vein is directly behind an unmarked set of three Dwemer pillars approaching the summit.
  • 1 vein in Sky Haven Temple, In the room just after the outside puzzle bridges on the right.
  • 1 vein in the spider's den after the swim underwater from the well in Forelhost Crypt.
  • 1 vein north of Windhelm, just north of the Wistmother's spawn spot.
  • 1 vein at Last Vigil.
  • 1 vein directly east of Ansilvund, up the mountain slope tucked into some rocks.
