Garlic Cluster

The ingredient Garlic is harvested from "Garlic Clusters" which are not actually plants, but rather are braids of garlic that are generally found hanging in basements.


  • Six samples of Garlic are needed to complete the quest Vampire Cure.
  • Vicente Valtieri has a scripted "Weakness to Garlic" (It's explained in an in-game document hidden in the Dark Brotherhood lair that this is a unique affliction of his -- the idea of garlic harming Vampires is normally inaccurate folklore in the setting). If he is carrying any garlic, he is inflicted with Damage Strength 100 pts, Damage Endurance 100 pts, Weakness to Normal Weapons 100%, and Weakness to Magic 100%.
  • It is never considered stealing to harvest garlic from a plant, even in full view of its owner.
