How to Get Dragonbone Weapons

Where to find the Dragonbone Dagger Location?

  • You can't find the Dragonbone dagger at any specific location in Skyrin. Unlike Dragonbone Armor, the dragonbone dagger does not appear in any loot lists once you reach a certain level in Skyrim. Theirfor the only way you can get Dragonbone weapons is by crafting them.
  • You can craft the Dragonbone Dagger once you reach level 100 smithing skill and get the Dragon Armor perk. The Dragonbone Dagger can then be forged at a blacksmith's forge.

Gameplay Tips

  • Combining the Sneak Skill Perk Assassin's Blade, for an additional 15x sneak attack damage, with the highest base damage dagger will dramatically increase your sneak attack damage.
  • While the Dragonbone Dagger is the best dagger in the base game of Skyrim it also has the same base damage as the Blade of Woe which you can get at level 1. Therefore its easier to obtain the blade of woe early until you level up your smithing skill.
  • The Creation Club added two daggers which are stronger than the Dragonbone Dagger: Fang of Haynekhtnamet and the Madness Madness Dagger. Both daggers have a base damage of 13 instead of 12 and are easier to craft than the Dragonbone Dagger.
  • You can get mods for Skyrim that add Dragonbone weapons into the possible loot list.

Item tier.png Weapon Levels

Some weapons in Skyrim are Levelled. The power of a levelled weapon is based on your charcters level when you get them. Some get stronger in both physical and magical aspects, while others only improve their enchantments. These items don't get better as your character levels up.

The Dragonbone Dagger is not a leveled weapon.
