The Aetherium Crest is a quest item found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Lost to the Ages[edit | edit source]

The aetherium crest can be made at the Ruins of Bthalft by combining all four aetherium shards. It is the key to accessing the Aetherium Forge deep below the ruins, and is the primary building material of the Aetherial artifacts: the Aetherial Shield, the Aetherial Crown, and the Aetherial Staff.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Even if the Dragonborn is able to obtain additional Aetherium Crests through the use of glitches or Console Commands, only one Aetherial Artifact can be made, as the Aetherium Forge loses its list of craftable items after the first artifact is made.
