The Daedric Bow is a bow found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Appearance and designEdit

The Daedric bow follows the recurve bow design in which the tips curve away from the archer when the bow is strung.

True to its predecessors from previous games, the Daedric bow's design is demonic in appearance with several spikes protruding from various parts of the body.


Unenchanted Daedric bows will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 46 and enchanted bows can be found at level 47, albeit very rarely. These locations include:

Fixed locationsEdit


The Daedric bow requires a Smithing level of 90 and the Daedric Smithing perk to create. It can be forged at a blacksmith's forge with the following components:

It can be upgraded with an ebony ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.

Atronach ForgeEdit

The Atronach Forge requires the following components to forge a Daedric bow:
