The Blue Dartwing is a species of dragonfly indigenous to the nation of Skyrim of the continent Tamriel on the planet Nirn. They are mostly found around shallow ponds in the wilderness, but are commonly seen around both Lund's Hut and Steamcrag Camp.

The people of Skyrim often use the wings of the dartwings as an alchemical ingredient, used to make potions such as Fear, Fortify Pickpocket, Resist Shock, and the extremely useful Restore Health.

Behind the scenes[]

  • Given The Elder Scrolls' modern attempts at adding real life species to some extent into their games, it can be assumed that the name "Dartwing" is intended to reference the real life "Darters". This is used for taxonomic purposes on this wiki.
