It is categorized as a rare ingredient, meaning that it can only be randomly found in rare-type apothecary's satchels. However, they do not appear in the inventories of apothecary merchants (even if the Merchant perk has been unlocked). Unlike several other ingredients that are not stocked by apothecary merchants, though, human hearts can be sold to merchants. Other possible locations for samples include:


  • A human heart is one of two items needed at the Atronach Forge to create a Daedra heart (requires the Sigil Stone). The Daedra heart can then be used to craft Daedric weapons and armor.
