For other uses, see Orichalcum Ore.

Orichalcum Ore is an ore used for crafting in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. When combined in a smelter, two ore can form an orichalcum ingot, which is used in crafting Orc-specific items.


Orichalcum ore is used to make orichalcum ingots at a smelter, where it can then serve more use. Once smelted into ingots, it is used to create and improve Orcish armor and weapons.
