  • I need 4 sabre cat teeth for my Hearthfire house but like 80% of the time I find a sabre cat they don't drop the tooth. Is anywhere I can buy them or just straight up find them in a cave or something?

    • I once had the very same issue,until i took i stroll at the Whiterun plains.Well,you can buy them off Alchemy shops,such as Arcadia's Cauldron in Whiterun,Elgrim's Elixirs in Riften,Angeline's Aromatics in Solitude,etc,etc.

    • Drelas' Cottage south of Morthal (in the plains beyond the snowy mountain and slightly to the east) has two in a bowl next to the Arcane Enchanter on the west side of the house. They're laying under some other ingredients, a Deathbell I believe. You'll have to deal with Drelas the dark arts mage who attacks on site, but he has zero ties into any quests. Also, they will be unfortunately be marked as stolen so there's a chance goons may come for you. I'm guessing they'll reset in in the standard time if the area's left alone although I haven't had a chance to test this as I just found them.

      I added this to the wiki article as there are no documented positive locations for them and this seems to be one.

    • I think sometimes they can be rarely found on Giants if you encounter any. Depending on your luck (opinion statement) and your location.

    • Also at least one Saber Cat is found near Secunda's Kiss. I would recommend that. If you didn't find that Saber Cat there, then I'm just trying to help.

    • I always build the houses myself and done it countless of times, noticed: collect the rarest items needed _before_ you begin to build, as they seem to be extremely hard to find afterwords! I don´t know if it´s scripted or not, hard to believe if it wasn´t as it always happens. I find them teeth all the time before starting to build, but afterwords it´s like the op said: extremy hard >_>

      One place is, like said above, Drela´s Cottage (two in a bowl on the floor, near the enchanting table). One way to find them with a small effort, is to adopt kids. They always have some in their chests. Then vendors. And killing all them cats you can find (thank the divines they respawn) :D

      The same seems to happen with small antlers, flawless sapphires (luckily there are sapphire veins in Solstheim). And some other rare items as well, although the sabre cat teeth has been the hardest. Oh, and the sabre cat snow pelt, just  spent days trying to find one *sigh*

      Also, if you´re lucky you´ll find the random orc waiting for a good death, he usually has two dead cats around him. And in Bleakwind Basin, there´s usually a dead sabre cat near the chest.

    • After you get the two from Drela's Cottage, you could do the duplication glitch to get 4 but if you are doing a No-Glitch Playthrough I suggest skirting around the Winterhold coastline and around Secunda's Kiss.

    • I find sabre cats near Crabber's Shanty, southeast of Morthal. Maybe you should look there.

    • It'll probably be faster to check out all possible alchemy shops considering that many sabre cats drop eyes instead of teeth :P I wonder if some hunters may not also carry sabre cat teeth sometimes?

    • I haven't found a hunter yet with sabre cat teeth.

      Yeah I don't think I have either but it's just another possible idea, considering they carry meats and pelts. Alchemy shops will definitely carry some though.

    • Yeah, alchemy shops are a sure shot for sabre cat teeth.

    • Hopefully after two years they have their four sabre cat teeth, don't go hunting for the cats inside dungeons though they don't respawn and can mess up the Companions Animal Extermination quest.

    • They could still be searching for the four teeth to this day. It's a possibility you can't ignore. We must keep leaving suggestion until this thread is closed at the request of the OP.

    • I have never found ANY sabre cat teeth in an alchemy shop. Just sayin

      I steal the flawless sapphire from the Inner Sanctum of Dibella's Temple in Markarth. They respawn so you can always go back. I also just collect the rarer gems like diamonds, emeralds and sapphires in case I ever need them.

    • There is an unmarked sabre cat den with two snowy sabre cats north east of the thalmor embassy

    • Recently found out sabre cat teeth will not be sold (or bought) by alchemists due to a bug, unless you use the unofficial patch on PC which fixes it. Like the wiki page says snowy sabre cats can be found around Windhelm and Winterhold.

    • Near 10yrs in Skyrim....so many of us dragonborns still search for the saber’s teeth. The last of the great quests in Skyrim.
