For this item in other games, see Sanguine Rose.

The Sanguine Rose is a Daedric artifact of Lord Sanguine, received after completing "A Night to Remember" which requires a level of fourteen or above. Sanguine Rose is a magic staff resembling an off-scale flower adorned with thorns and the petals of a red tea rose.


The Rose summons either a Dremora Kynreeve, Dremora Caitiff, Dremora Kynmarcher, Dremora Valkynaz, or a Dremora Markynaz (depending on player level) to fight for the wielder for sixty seconds. Killing the Dremora that is summoned does not relinquish a Daedra heart, nor can the construct be Soul Trapped. Followers can wield and employ the Sanguine Rose. Unlike its Oblivion counterpart, the Dremora always fights for the Dragonborn. There is a chance it will only summon a leveled Daedra.

  • Summoning a Dremora and using skills on it can be used to exploit level ups.
  • Occasionally, the summoned Dremora drops a Daedric Greatsword of Scorching as the Dremora is killed or expires.
  • Summoning a Dremora and then using the Wabbajack to change it into a rabbit, and then killing the rabbit may render a daedra heart.
  • Does not always summon a Dremora in the Soul Cairn (Dawnguard), but consumes one charge per attempt.


  •  360   PS3   When left in a chest (such as in a home) for long periods of time, it is possible that it will no longer summon a Dremora. The sound effects can be heard but no Dremora will be summoned in the process.
  • Having the perk "Elemental Potency" may cause the staff to malfunction.
  •  360   If a death animation displays while killing a conjured Dremora, it will remain headless the next time it is summoned.
  • Unlocking the "Twin Souls" Conjuration perk may cause no Dremora to be summoned at all.
  •  360   The Sanguine Rose will occasionally stay equipped when a player enters werewolf form.
  •  360   If the weapon is obtained at a relatively early enchantment level, it will only summon a Dremora Kynreeve. As enchantment levels increase, the strength of the Dremora may not until the Dremora Markynaz is summoned at higher levels, skipping the mid-level summonings altogether.
  • The Sanguine Rose may fall off weapon plaques in Proudspire Manor when entering the house.

    • In response to the OP, you may want to use the Staff of Hag's Wrath. It is a unique staff that shares its design with the Forsworn Staff.
    • And the Eye of Melka.
