Skyrim:Ores and Ingots

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search

Ores and Ingots are various forms of metal that can be collected and smithed to create and improve items. Ores can be extracted from veins found in mines and other areas around Skyrim, such as some caves and outdoors in rocky areas. Ores (already mined) and ingots can also occasionally be found in a wide variety of locations and on some people and objects. Smelting ores yields ingots, which can then be used at forges to create armor, weapons, and jewelry, or at grindstones and workbenches to improve armor and weapons.

This page lists all items that are categorized by merchants as ores and ingots. These are traded by jewelry merchants as well as blacksmiths (including the Imperial and Stormcloak Quartermasters found at most military camps). They can also be sold to general goods merchants. The following pages detail all sources and uses of the various minerals and metals:
