Rare Curios is a Creation that adds 51 ingredients from Morrowind, Oblivion, and Shivering Isles. Some of these ingredients have new effects from the previous games. The Creation also includes poisoned apples, Ayleid treasures, and new arrows and bolts.
It was released on August 29, 2018 for 100 CC Credits, and was later included as part of the Saints & Seducers Creation. Both Creations were made available for free to all Special Edition players with the release of the Anniversary Edition on November 11, 2021.

- Alchemists have always known that the rarest ingredients bring life to the most powerful potions. This is why Khajiit caravans have brought along rare imports from the far reaches of Tamriel, from the Ashlands of Morrowind to the twisted gardens of the Shivering Isles. With these ingredients in hand, you can craft new potions, arrows, and poisons, including the poisoned apple favored by assassins. You can also find rare stones crafted by the Ayleids, as things exotic and foreign make their way to Skyrim. (Items added to Khajiit merchant vendors.)
- Sneak Peek - Aug 2018
- A large collection of classic items come to Skyrim! This includes over 50 alchemical ingredients from the lands of Morrowind, Cyrodiil, and beyond. There are also returning potion effects, expanded crossbow bolts, and a few lost treasures of the Ayleids. None of these are commonly found in the lands of Skyrim, but the traveling Khajiit caravans are likely your best bet to find some.
This Creation adds a huge number of new items, the majority of which can only be obtained from Khajiit caravan traders. True to name, these items are quite rare and difficult to obtain, as the traders will only have a limited selection of items available at any given time. Many of the new items are ingredients, some with effects which are otherwise unavailable through alchemy (for example, Cure Poison, Light, Night Eye, Spell Absorption).
In addition to Khajiit caravans, chokeberries can be purchased by Babette, the new ammunition can be purchased from archery shops, and the Ayleid stones can be found as loot in boss chests. If Saints & Seducers is installed, many of the enemies in the questline drop Shivering Isles-related ingredients, and several can be found as loot or growing in the Solitude Sewers.
- The new bolts are made of specific materials because they are recreations of the types of bolts in Morrowind.
- There are now new ways to fall from any height. Originally the ingredient Netch Jelly was a life-saver when eaten mid-fall, unlike the Become Ethereal shout that cannot be activated mid-fall. The Rare Curios Creation adds a couple of new ingredients with a similar effect: Corkbulb Root and Gold Kanet, with Corkbulb Roots being a lot more common. As all of these ingredients cause paralysis when eaten, they can be eaten shortly before impact to negate the fall damage.
