Where to Find Crimson Nirnroot in Skyrim
If you’ve even just started to play Skyrim, you’ll be aware that almost everything in the game can be picked up and interacted with. One of those items is the Crimson Nirnroot, which can be used for crafting items such as potions that will help you on your adventures.
As you’d probably guess, they’re crimson versions of the standard Nirnroot and similarly to their namesake, you’ll hear a chiming sound when you’re near them, but it will be slightly off-key for the crimson variety. You are likely to find it near water areas and it is more common near fungi in the Blackreach area.
In Blackreach, it should be quite easy to find. The places you should look include Sinderion’s Field Laboratory, Silent Ruin, and the Derelict Pumphouse. Crimson Nirnroots respawn after 10 in-game days and they are unaffected by the Alchemy perk Green Thumb. They cannot be purchased from merchants and they cannot be found in random item packs. They are mostly useful for the crafting of the highest damage health potions in the game.
That is where you’ll find Crimson Nirnroot in Skyrim. For more on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite.
