Emerald Paragon is a miscellaneous item in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.


One of five Paragons, the Emerald Paragon can be used on the Paragon Platform in the Forgotten Vale to open a portal to Forgotten Vale Overlook. Once inside the Forgotten Vale Overlook, follow the river north staying to the right side. Before the waterfall there will be a chest, some weapons, and Unknown Book, Vol. II.


The Emerald Paragon can be found on a Frost Giant high in the mountains behind a Falmer camp that is northwest of the Wayshrine of Resolution and east of the lower entrances to Sharpslope Cave. Head up the bridges and paths of the Falmer shortly after passing the Wayshrine of Resolution to the right of the opening to the valley. Continue across the bridges and paths with the numerous Falmer encounters. Once you reach the sharp corner at the top of the path, you will come across a gate to a small paddock with some Falmer corpses and a Frost Giant that drops the Emerald Paragon.

  • The Frost Giant that drops the Emerald Paragon may go partly underneath the map when killed, thus making it impossible to loot the said paragon.
