For a budding alchemist, Irkngthand features a treasure trove of [[Alchemy]] [[Ingredients]]. As with any Dwemer ruin, it is possible to loot [[Dwarven Oil]] from the remains of automatons, whilst Falmer often drop [[Falmer Ear]]s, and occassionally other alchemical ingredients. Additionally, the existence of Chaurus within the ruins provides [[Chaurus Eggs|Chaurus eggs]], and [[Chaurus Hunter Antennae]], whilst [[Skeever Tail]]s, [[Charred Skeever Hide]] and [[Spider Egg]]s can also be obtained. Finally, Falmer have apparantly taken to cultivating fungi within the dungeon, and as a result, a variety can be harvested, including [[Imp Stool]], [[Blisterwort]], [[Bleeding Crown]], [[White Cap]], [[Namira's Rot]] and [[Fly Amanita]], whilst [[Glowing Mushroom]]s can often be harvested from the walls of the ruin.

Template:SkyrimDwemerRuin It is located west of Windhelm and south of Yorgrim Overlook, and is the location of the Thieves' Guild quest Blindsighted. The Dragonborn cannot gain entry to the ruin before starting this quest (See Dungeon Lock Outs). Approaching North East from Shearpoint allows entrance by descending from the mountains and if carried out correctly can lead the Dragonborn immediately to the Bandit Chief, avoiding several other bandits.

In the courtyard of the ruin there are five bandits and a chest. All but one of the entrances to the interior of the ruin have collapsed. Internally, Irkngthand harbours the only known statue of a Snow Elf, before betrayal by the Dwarves caused them to degenerate into the vengeful Falmer.

Due to the high numbers of Falmer, Chaurus and other undesirables which inhabit the ruin, Irkngthand is one of the most difficult Dwemer sites to explore, although a high sneak skill can prevent conflict within several areas, notably the Irkngthand Slave Pens, in which it is possible to sneak through the entire section without engaging a single enemy.
