The Ring of Namira is a Daedric Artifact that is obtained after completing The Taste of Death, which can be started by talking to Eola in the Hall of the Dead in Markarth. Acquiring this ring allows for a new random encounter to occur.


Verulus is located in front of the Hall of the Dead. In order to obtain the ring, the Dragonborn must kill and eat the flesh of Verulus at the end of the quest.


The Ring of Namira grants the wearer a boost of +50 stamina, and allows them to feed on corpses, which grants +50 health and +50% health regeneration for five minutes. These bonuses will remain even if the ring is removed before their duration expires. A bounty is acquired if a corpse is fed on in the presence of a guard.


This section contains bugs related to Ring of Namira (Skyrim). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • If the Dragonborn is wearing the Ring of Namira when they receive the Cursed Ring of Hircine from Sinding during the quest Ill Met by Moonlight, they will forever be able to feed off of bodies and obtain +50 health and +50% health regeneration.
  •  PC   Obtaining the ring with console commands and then gaining a second one from the quest will cause both to stop working.
  •  360   When wearing the Ring of Namira and choosing to feed on an important character after killing them, they may come back to life later
  • It is possible to feed on non-humans such as ghosts, ice wraiths etc.
  • If the Dragonborn is a werewolf, they may not have the option to feed on corpses with the ring equipped.
  • There is no sound effect for the eating animation when feeding in first person, while there is in third person.
  • Sometimes a glitch may occur where the Dragonborn does not receive the option to feed on a corpse. This is fixed by dropping the Ring of Namira and picking it up again.
