There are a million dwarven machines that drop them, the falmer carry them sometimes, and finally, and the best part, you can mine them. Bring your pickaxe. Look for "Geode Veins." I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else but a geode vein is where soul gems come from. You mine it like just like iron or ebony ore.
I suggest using a weapon enchanted with soul trap also because every falmer you kill will go right into filling an empty gem. When I got done I had about 60 or so filled soul gems and leveled from enchanting 50 to 100 with the one trip!
There are about 30 filled soul gems available for the taking in the College of Winterhold (check both the Arch-Mage's Quarters and all the dorm rooms). Once you take them all, simply wait two weeks (takes about ten minutes real time) and then all of the gems will have respawned. For me, this has been the easiest way to get soul gems yet.
Go to Dawnstar, wait until the khajiit caravan is in town, and then go to the chest take all the soul gems. Go back to the khakiit camp, talk to the trader, wait 49 hours while looking at the trader (They wont leave town if you're watching them). I find it helps a lot to wait the extra hour, then go back to the chest, take gems. Rinse, repeat, be happy.
In the dawnguard dlc the soul Carn just about every skeleton has soul gems on them filled like black or grand such and such I got so many last time I went and it was so easy. So much better than wasting your money on buying them. And if you wanted to soul trap just for conjuration exp then just spam cast soul trap on a dead body. Goes by fast if you make 4 items with 25% less cost magica on each of them so your conj spells cost no magic and just span soul trap. It gets to 100 so fast
Soul Cairn from the Dawnguard DLC is a great place to farm soul gems - every enemy will drop either an empty or filled soul gem of random size, including black soul gems. You will unlock this area as you play through the plot of the DLC.
Black soul gems are rare, but you'll sometimes find them spawning in chests or from ore veins. These let you capture humanoid souls, including merfolk and magic users. They function the same as other soul gems and break after one use.
Soul Gems are naturally-occurring magic stones that house the souls of the dead. Used for enchanting weapons and armor at an arcane enchanter or for recharging previously enchanted weapons, soul gems come in various sizes and strengths: petty, lesser, common, greater, grand and black. Capturing souls in soul gems is typically done with the Soul Trap spell of the Conjuration school of Magicka, or with a weapon that has received such an enchantment. With the exception of Azura's Star and The Black Star, using a filled soul gem always destroys it.
Trapping souls in soul gems requires the conjuration spell Soul Trap or a soul trap enchanted weapon. Killing an enemy with the spell cast upon them or using the enchantment draws their soul into one gem of the appropriate size. If no gem of the appropriate size exists in the inventory, the soul is captured by a higher-capacity gem. If there is no empty gem large enough, the soul is lost.
Humanoid races possess grand souls, but can only be trapped in a black soul gem or the Daedric artifact the Black Star, which is obtained through the quest of the same name. Falmer, draugr and Rieklings are an exception, as their souls may be captured in standard gems.
Soul Gems are miscellaneous items which can be used to trap the souls of dying creatures or NPCs. The resulting filled soul gems can be used as power sources for enchanted items, either when initially creating custom enchanted items or when recharging depleted enchanted weapons. Soul gems come in a range of capacities, from petty to grand, plus some special soul gems. Only black soul gems and the Black Star can be used to capture the soul of an NPC, which is always a grand soul in size. There are also soul gem fragments found in the game. These are classified as minor loot and are not actual soul gems.
Soul gems are an essential component to successfully imbuing magical properties to an item or weapon in a process called Enchanting. The quality of the soul gem affects the potency of the resulting enchantment. Filled soul gems can be found throughout the world, but can also be created through the spell Soul Trap. Another way to easily fill soul gems is by getting the Conjuration skill Soul Stealer, which automatically makes bound weapons cast Soul Trap.
So where exactly is Gallow's Hall? To find it, head to Windhelm then travel southwest to find the entrance built into the rocks near a body of water called Mara's Eye Pond. Head inside and you'll see a dead mage lying in front of an altar surrounded by notes, including Naara's plea and journal. Reading the journal will begin Dreams of the Dead.
There are coffins dotted around the room, so search three of them and pick up the Dreamer's soul gems to complete this part. You'll then return to the real world and can find the final instructions note on the red altar. The final Dreamer's soul gem can be found beside Naara on the floor, so pick it up. Place the Dreamer's soul gems on the altar and activate the Altar of the Revenant. Gallow's Hall is now yours and you can summon undead creatures using the altar in the basement, as well as find all sorts of alchemy ingredients around the cave.
I love Skyrim,and like the idea of capturing souls and binding them to items to give them power,and cause the closest thing l could find were soul coins,I decided to homebrew my own. Obviously I could just plagiarize Skyrim,but l want to be a bit more original,hence this thread.
Soul Gems are miscellaneous items which can be used to trap the souls of dying creatures or NPCs. The resulting filled soul gems can be used as power sources for enchanted items, either when initially creating custom enchanted items or when recharging depleted enchanted weapons. Note only Black Soul Gems and the Black Star can be used to capture the soul of an NPC, and is always stored as a Grand Soul. There are also Soul Gem Fragments found in the game. These are classified as minor loot and are not actual Soul Gems.
Empty Soul Gems can also be harvested from Geode Veins resulting in 2-3 gems of any size, including Black Soul Gems. Blackreach is home to numerous Geode Veins, and is the only known place where they can be found and mined.
Soul gemsGeneral informationItem IDSee tableItem typeMiscellaneous and consumable.Soul gems, or Pyrean crystals, are used to trap the soul of any creature with a white soul. Like in Skyrim, white souls vary in strength from petty to grand, with five soul gems of different capacity in total and they can be acquired from creatures. For example, it's possible to fill a common soul gem with either an lesser or petty soul, while a greater or a grand soul can't be stored in common or soul gem of lesser quality. The empty soul gems have to be filled a soul by the player, while filled ones are ready to be used for enchanting equipment, recharging enchanted weapons or creating phasmalist amulets, which will consume the soul and the gem in the process.
Empty soul gems can be acquired by either buying them, finding them or mining blue-glowing shadow ore veins. Most glowing shadows give a random soul gem whenever one vein is mined. Filled soul gems can be acquired by buying them from stores or finding them around the world.
In the table below you can find all relevant statistics for all white soul gems and their item ID's. The value of a filled soul gem depends on the soul filled with it. For example: A grand soul filled with a common soul will be worth 100 coins, while it will be worth 500 coins when filled with a grand soul.
Higher level creatures have higher level souls. Many creatures do not have souls that can be harvested. Soul Trap will have no effect on these. Below are examples of locations where creatures of each level of soul can be found.
The easiest way to fill soul gems with petty souls is by going to the Ark Undercity. In the Main Cavern and Barracks area, there are a lot of sewer rats who die with one hit and can't harm the player. Bring a light source and a preferable a sword to harvest 10-20 petty souls. Be careful not to hit the residents during the hunt.
Trapping Soul is the only way to transform your empty gem into full. First of all make sure that you have an empty gem in your inventory. If there are no empty gems you will not be able to trap the soul. There are several ways to capture soul of the enemy:
In the world of Skyrim, there are charms that are superimposed on armor or weapons, but such charms are not durable and eventually cease to give their effect. When the magic effect is exhausted, it is necessary to replenish the level of magic in the ammunition, by means of a special object, and soul gems will serve as this means of reloading. The soul that rests in the gem will fill the level of spells partially or completely, it all depends on the gem, what size soul it holds inside. If the armor is not bewitched, and you want to add enchantment to it, then soul gems are one of the main ingredients that are necessary for this. Soul gems will play a significant role if your character wears heavily enchanted armor and weapons, because without them you can forget about powerful features, so you should constantly monitor the presence of charged soul gems and constantly replenish their supply.
To charge an item, just select it in the inventory and press the T key, the item will be filled based on the capacity of the soul gem. To enchant an item, you need to find the "Pentagram of Souls", a special table for enchantment, it is in every city, then choose an enchantment, an item for enchantment and a completely filled soul gem. Initially, only one type of enchantment is available, others can be studied by disassembling enchanted objects on the Pentagram of Souls.
Soul gems are not uncommon in the game world and getting them will not be difficult. The main source for their production will be killed enemies, just do not be lazy to drip in their inventory. Among other things, souls gems are abundant among merchants, but their range is quite limited, but the stock is replenished every game week. 2b1af7f3a8
