"There's an apothecary in town, yeah. But it's down on the lower walkway, so stay sharp if you go down there."
―Riften Guard

Elgrim's Elixirs is an Alchemy shop in Riften that is operated by Elgrim and his wife Hafjorg. It is located on the western end of the channel in Riften on the lower level.


Ingun's Task[]

Elgrim's apprentice, Ingun Black-Briar, is searching for several ingredients for her own research: twenty nirnroot, twenty nightshade, and twenty deathbell, which the Dragonborn can find for her.

After the quest is completed, the Dragonborn will receive a key to a chest in the back room where Ingun regularly adds new potions for the Dragonborn to take.



  • In the corner is an alchemy lab, which the Dragonborn can use freely.
  • Behind the shop is a more home-like room where Elgrim and Hafjorg live. Under the bed is a coin purse. Next to the bed is a strongbox, which has gold and an ingot in it.
