A Dragon Bone is a crafting material found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Dragon bones are one of the main components required to make dragonplate armor and dragonbone weapons. Each bone is quite valuable, but at 15 WeightIcon per piece, dragon bones are by far the heaviest items used in smithing. Despite being relatively easier to acquire than ebony ingot in early levels, dragon bones cannot be utilized until acquiring the Dragon Armor perk at a smithing skill of 100.

  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.
  •  PC   360   PS3   When multiple dragon bones are dropped as a bundle and picked up by a follower, the game may only add a single dragon bone to the follower's inventory. To avoid this bug, trade them directly to followers, or drop them one at a time.
  •  PC   Sometimes, in the very beginning of the game, the ID codes for the dragon bones become bugged and console commands to add them to one's inventory result in a Form ID error. This can be fixed by using "player.placeatme 0003ADA 4 1" to place a single set of the bones on the ground to be picked up, to which the ID works normally afterwards.
