They take the form of a metal mouse with an extremity on their backs that resembles a key used to wind up clockwork toys. Skeevatons run on what appears to be a literal mouse wheel, which is seen detaching when destroyed. They drop Clockwork Oscillators, a trash item that can be sold to merchants for gold.
There is also a non-combat pet available, the Clockwork Skeevaton, which has a default name of "Skweex".
Two skeevatons can be found in cages on the Shimmerene Dockworks.
- In Search of a Sponsor: Gain sponsorship in order to become a citizen of the Clockwork City.
- Lock and Keystone: Search the depths of a Dwemer vault for a powerful artifact.
- Unto the Dark: Pursue the Shadow of Sotha Sil to the center of the Clockwork City.
There is one achievement associated with this creature:
