Click here for more Skyrim Guides

Whenever you come across a dead Daedra enemy or monsters, there’s a big chance that you can get its heart. Just like in other Elder Scrolls game, the Daedra’s Heart is an essential item into crafting a complete Daedra Armor set.

The easiest way to get a Daedra’s Heart is by doing the 15 Daedric Quests or simply going to a Daedric Dungeons. Once you farm enough Daedra’s Heart, it’s time to gather enough ingredients. Particularly, you would need an Ebony Ingot and a Leather Strip.

If you wish to craft the complete set of the Daedric Armor (Helmet, Shield, Boots, etc.) and Weapons (Bow, Sword, Dagger, Greatsword, etc.), here are the total items you would need.

– 10 Daedra Hearts
– 38 Ebony Ingots
– 17 Leather Strips

    I am trying to make daedra armor and I have all the items above and I’m a level 90 in smithing, but when I use the blacksmith forge there isn’t even an option to make daedra armor. The only options are leather, iron, hide, and jewelry.

    Any suggestions??

    @alex, This guide is pointless. BLAH BLAH BLAH IM A IDIOT N00B TROLL. In order to craft stuff, you must level up, go to smithing on the skills menu after selecting to upgrade health magica or stamina, and buy the PERK to be able to make the armor. PLUS, you can only use a perk if you have the one before it, SO, you need to be able to make dwarven and such armor before. THEN buy the daedric armor perk. AND THEN, go to smithing, daedric(on the forge) and it will show you the ingrediants you need. So, your intentions were no doubt good, but i have to point out that without information about the perk, this guide is not much use. *Expects to get insults thrown at me now*

    well obviously your smithing has to be high, if you played the game at all it dosent take a genious to figure out that you cant make badass armor off the bat, this acutally helped me out alot by the time my smithing is high enough for daedric armor i will have the mats already

    For daedric armour & weapons u need to have unlocked deadric smithing as well have all the necessary ingredients e.g. deadra hearts for each item, ebony & leather strips.
    wear some enchanted smithing clothes & drink smithing potion/philter/elixer just berfore u smith to get the best results.
    enchant your regular armour with some heavy armour fortification to boost armor rating.
    my deadric armor at the moment is rated 1566
    mt deadric greatsword does 444(+96) damage
    all due to correct smithing/enchanting & perks

    i hope this helps u out.

    i have enchanted legendary deadric armor and my armor rating is 1994 without shield , i use a enchanted legendary greatsword that does 550 base damage and 38 fire damage, 367 charges.

    gunna make an archer see if i can get insanely high damage , maybe use a sword shield also.
