Appearance and design[edit | edit source]
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.
Locations[edit | edit source]
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:
- Found as random loot in chests.
- Enchanted bows dropped as random loot by Revered or Legendary Dragons.
Fixed locations[edit | edit source]
- Niranye in Windhelm often sells enchanted bows after level 47 once she is available as a fence.
- Tonilia in Riften often sells both unenchanted and enchanted bows after level 47.
- Brood Cavern, one by a dead archer, available after level 47.
- An enchanted bow may be found on the counter in Syndus' shop in The Ragged Flagon after level 47.
- Can be bought from the Dremora Merchant via the Black Market spell.
