The Dwemer Puzzle Cube is a larceny target in Skyrim. It is found in Calcelmo's Laboratory and the only application it has is that it can be sold to Delvin Mallory for gold. The Dwemer puzzle cube is Dwemer-made, obvious because of its name, color, structure, and the fact that it is found within a Dwemer ruin.


The easiest way to get it is to pick it up when doing the quest "Hard Answers." Once sold, it can be viewed at the Thieves Guild headquarters in the Ragged Flagon on a shelf behind the Guild Master's desk.


In Markarth's Understone Keep, through the Dwemer Museum, in the last room of Calcelmo's laboratory. It is to the right when facing the door to the balcony.

  •  PC   360   PS3   Due to bugs, picking up the cube may result in the journal not being updated, or it will cause all ongoing Larceny jobs to complete instantly, preventing the Dragonborn from getting the rewards of the quest. Returning all unique items to Delvin before retrieving the cube fixes this.
  •  PC   360   PS3   Returning to retrieve the cube after completing the quest "Hard Answers" may cause the questline to reopen. This also results in the inability to get the reward from Delvin.
  •  360   May cause freezing to occur if picked up and saved in any way. (save file, exit area, etc.)
