Conjure Dremora Lord is an Expert-level Conjuration spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Casting it summons a dremora lord to fight for the summoner. The summoned creature cannot be sent back with Expel Daedra, nor can it be controlled by Dragon Priests, which makes it an invaluable ally when fighting them. The daedric artifact Sanguine Rose has the ability to summon one. Conjured dremora lords cannot be Soul Trapped.



Dremora Lords have 345 health and attack with an enchanted Daedric Greatsword of the Inferno but are incapable of ranged combat as they lack bows. When using this spell, it should be cast as close to the enemy as possible, as the Dremora Lord's heavy armor slows it down considerably, and they will use melee weapons but not bows. Once within striking distance, there are few enemies that can best the Dremora Lord in combat. Despite their lower health, they are roughly an even match for a Draugr Deathlord due to their superior armor and weaponry; however, they do appear to be vulnerable to magic. If the Sanguine Rose has been acquired, it is somewhat redundant to buy the spell tome and learn this spell, though it does remove the need to carry the extra 10 units of weight the Sanguine Rose has and the need to carry soul gems to recharge the staff.

  •  PC   360   It is possible to acquire the spell tome from Ulfberth War-Bear (Blacksmith) at Whiterun without having level 75 conjuration, and still be able to cast the spell.
  •  360   When casting the spell, the animation will play but the Dremora Lord will not actually be there.
    • Solution: Using the menu button, the Dremora Lord will appear within a few seconds in the background.
  •  360   The Dremora Lord may at times drop his sword and use a nearby weapon.
  • If the dremora lord is decapitated upon "death," the next summoned dremora may appear headless.
  • If summoned, it may not disappear, and it has a Daedra Heart but still says it's the Dragonborn's dremora. It does not disappear when another is summoned.
  •  PS3   Dremora Lords may become unbound and attack the Dragonborn without being provoked, but very rare. This happens when the player uses the spell repeatedly and quickly when it doesn't work. In that case an unbound dremora will appear a few seconds later for each time the spell didn't work correctly. If the player stay around the dremora, he will stay neutral in a first time. The dremora will attack the Dragonborn on sight when you will come back to that place. This can be useful for farming Daedra Hearts.
  • If the Dremora turns hostile towards the Dragonborn and is killed, the quest "Rejoining the College" may be started.
