I recently completed the main storyline. Now that I've used the dragon elder scroll, I don't think I need it. However, the game says it's still a quest item and I can't drop it, stash it in one of my 20 unused storage compartments (thanks, Hearthfire!), or sell it to a vendor (I don't think it has any value, though). I have all 3 DLC add-ons, and I'm assuming that either it's a bug, or it's part of either Dawnguard or a side quest in Dragonborn (I've already killed Miraak).

  • It's not a bug, it's intended. Aequitas already gave an answer, personally, i removed it from my inventory and spawned it back into the world so i could decorate my house with it.^^ Oct 21, 2015 at 5:21

You can sell it to Urag gro-Shub at the College of Winterhold for 2,000 Gold.

Alternatively you can use the RemoveItem command;


player.removeitem <ItemID> <#>


Remove an item from the inventory.

The item id for Elder Scroll: Dragon is: 0002D513 or XX0126DC in DawnGuard

  • isn't there one guy at fort dawnguard who also wants to buy the elder scrolls? or does he only want to buy the elder scroll: sun? not sure...

  • @WayneEra, The Moth priest, who resides at whichever castle you've joined forces with, will buy the Sun & Blood scrolls when you're done with the that quest line. Folks who prematurely sell the Dragon scroll to the Orc Librarian before the end of the Dawngard quest-line will find they need to purchase it back for a significant markup.
