Dremora Merchant

Dremora Merchant when summoned.

Black Market is a lesser power found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn. As with other "lesser" powers, it is not restricted to once-a-day use. Despite the name, the merchant does not offer to purchase stolen goods without the "Fence" Speech perk.


It is one of three possible powers gained from the quest "Black Book: Untold Legends."


"Summons a Dremora merchant for 15 seconds."

When activated, a Dremora Merchant appears and offers to trade much like a regular merchant. He will buy any type of item and sells Daedric armor and weapons, though at lower levels he may only sell Ebony armor and weapons, or even Dwarven armor and weapons. He typically has 2,000 GoldIcon available for trading, which resets after two days. He offers a way to purchase Daedric armor or weapons before reaching level 48.


This section contains bugs related to Black Market. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  ,  NX  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  PS3   Sometimes, if the Dragonborn attempts to speak with the merchant while he is teleporting, the game will freeze. This can be fixed by restarting the system.
  •  PC   The merchant may not benefit from the use of the console to alter its amount of available GoldIcon.
  •  360   The merchant may keep quest items, such as the Blade of Woe.
  •  360   If the "Slow Time" shout is used directly after summoning the Dremora, the shout will work indefinitely. When enemies are killed and if their dialogue is still on screen, they cannot be looted. If no dialogue relating to the enemy is on screen, then they can be looted. This bug continues if one walks indoors.
    •  360(Fix)   Waiting one in-game hour may fix this.
