SKYRIM - 5 Dwemer Secrets (Elder Scrolls Lore & Facts)

Welcome to another episode of "Skyrim Secrets," a lore series that I started to honor the release of Skyrim Special Edition. Today I've got 5 facts about the Dwemer (although other subjects - such as Lorkhan, the Chimer and Dunmer, the Snow Elves and Falmer, etc. are also discussed).

    I'm getting a lot of comments about what I said at 0:07, so let me clarify: the ALDMER are different from the ALTMER. My statement was "the Aldmer, ancestors of the high elves," but to be fair, I didn't do a great job pronouncing Aldmer, so it sounded like "Altmer." I apologize for that. The Altmer are, of course, not the ancestors of the high elves; Altmer is another (and more proper) term for the High Elves.Aldmer, on the other hand, are an ancient race of elves from which (nearly) all races of elves descended - one exception being, of course, the Dwemer. The Aldmer and Altmer are similar, and there are some lore masters who might tell you they are essentially the same thing, but I personally believe there's a distinction (if not culturally, then at least historically).Hope that clears things up!

  • QueenThoria

    this is much more interesting than real history!

  • WhatAmIDoing

    You should make a video that's like a few hours long that goes far more in depth in all major and a few minor things in elder scrolls history

  • Anime Sucks

    The dwemer were called dwarves from the giants because they looked short to them

  • Kesseleth

    One more neat little factoid: Despite being referred to as the Dwarves, the Dwemer aren't actually distinctly shorter than most elves. They were called that by the races of giants, to whom everyone was short, and the name stuck.

  • Cabbe

    "Hey, what should we call our new land?" "Well, we could call it Hammerfell, because this is were ther hammer fell..""Yeah, that's a good idea"

  • Tristan Waldron

    I hope we get a lot more lore of these people in Elder Scrolls 6

  • Willie Stroker

    i Have a theory what happened to them, they became merged with the automatons that roam the ruins, as many of the machines in Skyrim have soul gems. That would explain why the machines are still operational after several eras.

  • Peter Rhea

    Could you imagine an Elder scrolls where the dwemer not only come back but you could play as them?

  • Zitrusboy ™

    The truth is that volendrung and spellbreaker arent really daedra artefacts, but dwemer artefacts right?

  • Asian Penguin

    i really wanna drive Numidium

  • Coost

    Hope whoever see's this has a fantastic day!

  • Fishhunter2014

    I think Volendrung looked a lot different when it was in use by the Dwemer. My theory is that it came to its current appearance after it came into the possession of Malacath, who then reshaped it to better reflect himself.

  • Oskiic

    The reason why you cant find any dwemmer in skyrim is: theres a quest in winterhold. an old man was studying the dwemmer and came to an answer he said go find a warped crystal enz. when you come back he tries to effect it when he touches it with a blade he disappears and the quest ends if you look at your magicka you can conjure him but he doesnt say anything. thats what probably happand to the dwemmer

  • Meat Ball

    i was always so disappointed when skyrim decided to make a dlc about vampires instead of a falmer invasion which was always alluded to in the vanilla game

  • Jonathan Rosevelt

    seriously people who make videos on TES lore realy shouldy play through ESO

  • Anthony Cruz

    I swear you're my favorite ES youtuber, your content is always amazing. Keep up the great work!

  • OblivionKisame

    Personally I think that the dwemer are still alive somewhere

  • Alex Higgins

    I think the dwemer are just chilling in lyg and developing war machines that make their relics pale in comparison

  • Hidden Desire

    Fact Correction: The snow elves were not forced to be blinded. To be able to survive in Blackreach, they had to ingest the local mushroom which similarly kept the dwemer alive down there. Unfortunately it had an adverse effect the body structure of the snow elves and blinded them, whereas Deep Elves, through generations, and grown used to them.

  • Joshua Guhnaydo

    i love ur vids, but i wanna make a little bit correction. Atmoran(nords) come first from atmora not to conquer skyrim. they simply just wanna stay .Men and snow elves( falmer) was live in peace until the snow elves feels that nords reproducing so quick and they are afraid that nords will take over skyrim. they came invade sarthal (which is human settelment) and kill every man, woman and also child ,which we known as Night of Tears.but there another reason why snow elves invade sarthal. When Saarthal was originally built, the Atmorans found a source of great power located underneath its foundations, and attempted to keep it buried. The Snow Elves learned of this and coveted the object for themselves Only 3 nords who survive in Night of Tears (Ysgramor and his two sons, Yngol and Ylgar) manage to escape back to atmora. Ysgramor gather army ready to fight and avenge the victims of the elves. This army became known as the Five Hundred Companions. The snow elves suffer defeat many times agaisnt the Companion, force them to hide underground. The Snow elves seeks refuges to Dwemmer .The Dwarves(Dwemmer) agreed to grant the Snow Elves refuge, but at a high price. They were forced to eat toxic plants in order to live underground. This toxic fungus naturally came from Blackreach, and the Dwemer fed the toxic fungus to the Snow Elves.The toxins gradually destroyed their sight, and this loss happened over generations. The Dwemer then forced the blind Snow Elves into slavery. Not all of the Snow Elves agreed to such a price (like paladin Erebor in Dawnguard DLC for example). Splinter groups had formed to search for alternate solutions. These elves sought out other alliances, but, ultimately, most were slaughtered, vanished, or gave in and accepted the Dwemer's offers.Sorry for long post, ur video are great btw

  • Ghost of Ronin

    See if you ditch religion you advance further in technologyIf only humans were this intelligent

  • Terabite Black

    so the dwemer are the Mayans of the Elder Scrolls because of the whole disappearing act

  • Jose C

    there is a theory that they exist in the alternite versión of mundus   i think its calle LYG were MEHURES DAGON was created

  • IncrediblyRadiatedGuy 9000

    When on the timeline did they disappear

  • Pie Guy

    Wait is it just a coincidence that the hammer volendrung landed in HAMMERFELL?

  • Seath The Traitor

    Elder scrolls VI or VII should be back in time and takes place during the wars and the race you pick is the faction and each faction has It's on story line

  • Bhusta Cap

    wait youre serious? ansorbed into its skin???.... cocaines a hell of a drug.

  • Sinsear

    I really love dwemer lore.

  • Wulfhart Ice-Bear

    Didn't Shalidor defeat the dwemer?

  • Biltre

    their plan didn't backfired they wanted to create a god to deny the "fake existence"/dream in which they were present and with tonal architecture and the Heart of lorkhan/the First stone they created a Tower the "Brass Tower" which is capable of altering reality near it or the Animinidium/Brass Tower case to deny it/destroy it as the dwemer wished and they became it's "skin" in a VERY figurative way.

  • Leena Williams

    Another great video! Will you please do the Bosmer at some point?

  • Proximus

    Gr8 video buddy !! But I am looking forward to ur next video in the daedra series , also i wud certainly enjoy a video about all the legendary weapons and the lore connected to them

  • Irish Cream

    By the three, the spirits, and my lord. May Almsivi guide you

  • Ranis Athrys

    Despite not being extremely interested in Dwemer history I do remember few facts that vastly collide with what you have been preaching here, Outlander. While we were drinking a comberry tea in Ald'ruhn's branch of our Guild, a good friend of mine (for a Breton of course) Edwinna, once told me that what Dwemer excavated was a rock in the shape of a heart, very hot in touch. Only later Dwemer came to understand this is the Heart of Lorkhan. Secondly the Dwemer transformed this "rock" into some sort of a bell. Its reverbations could grant or curse the person whom hit the Heart a different set of properities. Its the Kagrenac who discovered the different "combinations" of hits done by Sunder and Keening. Two most prominent are: the wearer of Wraithguard strikes the Heart with the hammer Sunder, causing the Heart to produce a pure tone. Then the wearer of the Wraithguard strikes the Heart with the blade Keening, shattering the pure tone into a prism of tone-shades. These tone-shades are then imprinted upon the substance of the wearer of Wraithguard, giving him or her an immortal and divine nature. The second combination I remember leads to destruction of heart bell: strike the Heart with Keening for a second time, causing its tones to diverge into unstable patterns of interference. Further repeated strikes with Keening will further disrupt the tones, with the ultimate result of shattering and dispelling Kagrenac's original enchantments binding the Heart. This is what I believe the Nerevarine did out there deep under the Red Mountain. It was all written in very old Dwemer book which, sadly I seem to have misplaced some long time ago. Perhaps I traded it for something more riveting to my profession.One thing about the disappearance of the "bearded mer": clearly it's the making of Azura. One of her many curses. Just like ours. The curse of being Dunmer. She made our skin ash and eyes fire. She made Dwemer cease to exists in Nirn as well. Or perhaps she made them invisible?...

  • Edgy Cat

    may the sithis be with you brothers and sisters of dark brotherhood

  • Betito117

    So dwarves are elves in elder scrolls?

  • Chayward vlogs

    Bring back dwemer in es6

  • Andrew Wilson

    some of this video is factually incorrect. when the atmorans came into skyrim they were living peacefully alongside the falmer in different territories. the nords started growing to great in numbers and out of fear the snow elves attacked the nords starting the war. the elves were losing badly and many of them sought refuge from the dwemer. the dwemers condition was the enslavement of the race and the blinding of the falmer using a toxin. not all snow elves did this. some were slaughtered some went into hiding. most of what you said about the falmer is correct though. im not sure if slavery was 100% a condition however

  • NeoVoodooTech

    My old buddy Ro! I remember when you had 5k subs! Congrats man so glad to see you almost at 100k.

  • JRWT 0

    I was a regular black guy played cod and sports....then i started playing skyrim

  • Jǫrmungandr

    It would be awesome if Bethesda made an TES game where we get to play as dwemer

  • Gabriel Hernandez

    But what about the return of Numidium? When it comes back to destroy all of Tamriel, if not Nirn!?!? Also known as the Landfall?

  • QorinHalfhand.

    Kagrenac used the tools combined and alone.The 3 gods of the Chimer where succsessfull bcs they split the power and the tools between them.Thats atleast my theory.Either that or the activation of the heart required a massive sacrifice of life in order to fuel its power(or jumpstart it) and the 3 gods just tapted into it afterwards.

  • TheUncleCappy

    they were sent to Oblivion. Falion said he met dwemer in Oblivion. as to whether they could come back or not...well the dwemer have done the impossible before

  • Kebab with extra garlic mayo

    who is the numinar, where is he found? is it a mod? ref to 5:22

  • Icy Bite

    Hey how about falmer's giant bug?

  • Envoy Of The All-Terrifying

    The Dwemer are trapped in Oblivion. The heart of Lorkhen is the essence of Sithis who is the essence of everything Daedric. So using the heart can't get you to the place of Aedra for sure. Using the heart of Sithis to disappear where? It can only be Oblivion. Also they enslaved snow elves which the Aedra must have seen and they allowed them to essentially self-destruct. They tried to be their own gods. Now they must be drifting the planes of Oblivion trying to come back.

  • Darryl Worrell

    I love your videos dude

  • richard stephen

    I seriously hate the elfs now expect dewmer reason because the cause the extention of dewmer what the dewmer create guns ro fight of inveder

  • beanodonnell

    The thalmer part is wrong ots explained in marrowind that the dwemmer found an ancient artifact and used it making all dwemer blink out of existence since the snow elves lived with them thy attempted to use the same artifact but when they did there elven god appeared angry and cursed them to be grey and took there eyes from them

  • Yonatan Ben Haim

    If The Elder Scrolls VI will involve a story surrounding the Dwemer, it would be spectacular, IMO.

  • The Rogue

    it would be cool if the dwemer were teleported to one of the moons

  • Mason Officially

    If the heart was successfully implanted into that machine it would more or less bring lorkhan back to life

  • Fulton Aleppo

    Be really cool if you YouTubers that include modded content in your videos could credit the mods or list them so people can play them.

  • Tekkara

    It's pretty obvious what happened to them, they were used to make a philosopher stone

  • TheLeopardGaming

    Skyrim music makes me feel so alive....

  • kevilin brites

    a good point for bethesda, a huge plot for the elder scrolls VI, someone build a third numidium or found a place where some dwemer are hidden

  • Kebab Remover

    hell yeah thank you man :D

  • X.P. -Xavier Poll-

    wait what? Where do I find those gauntlets? I've never even found those gauntlets in Skyrim... Or do you mean the Morrowind game and not Solstheim in Skyrim?


    Also check out the channel: Rhex he talks about the Dwemmer, and why they disappeared. You might find that interesting.

  • Stag

    I liked how you showed dwemer related mods like moon and star.

  • dill pickle

    my god, elder scrolls lore is harder to understand than any history class i've ever taken. much unlike my history classes, however, i really wanna understand it all.

  • a potato

    Hammerfell was named after the hammer landed there.

  • Dark Reaper516

    Spell breaker is not dwarven because it is a dadric shield when you have it to become the champion of paryite.
