How To Craft Stalhrim Items [Skyrim]

Stalhrim is a new ore introduced in the Dragonborn DLC. It is an extremely rare (meaning found only in Solstheim) deposit which can be used to smith new gear in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Aside from actually finding Stalhrim deposits, there are a number of requirements for crafting it into gear.

    Get Stalhrim without te hassle:

    Press ~ to bring up console.
    Type [help stalhrim 4] and enter.
    There are a bunch of item codes shown, whick should all start with the same two digits. Remember these.

    Now type [player.additem xx02b06b 1] in which you replace the xx with the two digits you were rembering. Press enter. There should be one Stalhrim added to your inventory. You can change the last ‘1’ to any quantity you like, in case you need more Stalhrim.

    Hope it helps!
