Dremora Valkynaz, erroneously referred to as the Dremora Valynaz on occasion in-game, are a powerful form of Dremora. They wield a high-damage enchanted two-handed weapon. They are the highest level Dremora encountered in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. They appear one step higher than Dremora Markynaz.
Since Dremora Valkynaz are leveled creatures, they may appear outside the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon. At the end of the quest "Pieces of the Past," Mehrunes Dagon will summon two Dremora outside to attack the Dragonborn, regardless of their choice in killing Silus Vesuius. There will also be two inside the Shrine. (Note that the Dremora respawn in one week game time, and are a great source of Daedra Hearts.)
They can also be summoned by the Dragonborn using the Expert-level Conjuration spell, Conjure Dremora Lord. This spell can be bought from Phinis Gestor at the College of Winterhold for 1900 once the Dragonborn reaches 70 Conjuration.
- If a Dremora is resurrected as a Dead Thrall, they retain their regular speaking voice, unlike other undead who simply groan and mumble.
- The Valkyn (-az roughly means "member of") is Mehrunes Dagon's personal guard.
