Notes[edit]

  • Contrary to what is stated in the official Game Guide, spriggans only drop taproot, and never drop spriggan sap.
    • PC Only This issue has been addressed by version 2.0.0 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch; both ingredients can be dropped when spriggans die.
  • Frequently, objects which look exactly like Taproot are found apparently used as light sources. Most often they are seen in camps such as those inhabited by the Forsworn. These cannot be picked up or interacted with in any way, however.
