Dwarven Horse

The Dwarven Horse is a unique horse which can be constructed as part of the related quest. It is a vamidium, a Dwarven automaton built to resemble a living horse for use as a mount. The parts needed to build it can be found within Runoff Caverns.

It is unique in that it takes no damage; it cannot be hit, can fall from any height, and cannot even be killed through use of the kill console command. Unlike regular horses, it is capable of sprinting for an indefinite amount of time.

  • Despite being mechanical, it makes regular horse sound effects; it also can be detected by the Detect Life spell.
  • Dwarven Horses first appeared in ESO.
  • The Dwarven Horse cannot change saddles or wear Horse Armor
  • The Dwarven Horse always stays exactly where you last left it. It doesn't return back to any location.
  • As a result of the horse's invulnerability, you can fall from any height while riding it and not take any fall damage.[verification needed — still true after AE update?]


  • Originally, one of the side effects of the horse's invulnerability is that you were rendered invincible while mounted, making mounted combat quite useful.
