The Centurion Dynamo Core is an item found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The Centurion Dynamo Core is found in Dwemer ruins, the bodies of Dwarven Centurions, and rarely on the bodies of Dwarven Spheres or Falmer. It seems to serve as the centurion's power source. They are one of several difficult-to-obtain items needed to conjure Daedric armor and Daedric weapons at the Atronach Forge.



  • Required to create unenchanted Daedric armor and weapons at the Atronach Forge.
  • In the Dragonborn add-on, three dynamo cores are required to access the final chamber inside Fahlbtharz. There is one already on one of the pedestals, but the other two are with the two Dwarven Centurions, which the Dragonborn has to destroy. However, cores may be brought with the player to avoid this fight.


  • The centurion dynamo core has a red glow and aura emanating from it and the ball in the center constantly rotates.
  • The Dynamo core spins infinitely, and is almost undoubtedly a source of perpetual energy to power the centurion.

    • Of course theres none in the dwarven museum because that would make a little to much sense right?
    • There are Centurions down in Nchuand-Zel, not too far.

    • I just want some daedric armor so it seems a bit unfair to have to go finding all this stuff. Is there a place you can find it?
    • I found one in a chest in a small ruin near Reach stormcloak camp by the river
