Hawk Feathers can be found on dead hawks along with hawk beaks.

It is categorized as an uncommon ingredient, meaning that all apothecary merchants have a 15% chance of carrying 1-5 samples. In addition, it may be randomly found in uncommon and rare apothecary's satchels. Other possible locations for already harvested samples include:

  • 75% chance at 1-3 hawk feathers at 9% each, or 9% chance at 1 hawk feather being carried by any Silver Hand members.


Hawks can be seen flying in the sky or found near their nests. When shot down, each hawk can be looted for three hawk feathers and one hawk beak. There are 67 nests where hawks can spawn, in 17 different locations. Locations with the greatest numbers are:


  • The base magnitude of the Cure Disease effect for this ingredient is 2 instead of 5. The only real implication of this reduced magnitude is that if charred skeever hide and hawk feathers are combined, the resulting potion will cost 64% less than a typical custom Cure Disease potion.
