This guide will show you how to access one of the shop inventory chests in Dawnstar. Ever wondered where the shopkeepers have all their items? Well I’m going to show you!
Firstly you will need to go to Dawnstar, either fast travel there or take a carriage. If you don’t want to spend money on a carriage you can always run, but it will take a while.
Once you get to Dawnstar locate the smelter by the mine, it shouldn’t take long to find just wander about the town. Once you find this smelter by the mine look at the entrance to the mine then look to the left until you see three small rocks.
Run over to these rocks and stand in the middle, look at the one furthest away from you and search around it on the right hand side. Run your cross hair up and down on this rock until you see the open chest notification.
Press the appropriate button and it will open up the chest under the ground (some shop’s inventory) and you can take whatever you want. This will not count as stealing so you can sell the items or use them. Inside the chest you will find lots of good items from soul gems to weapons and armour.
Shop inventories are hidden underground where players can’t get to them. The items match those on sale in an actual shop and this chest is located very close to that shop so I concluded that it was the developer’s way of making sure the player couldn’t just take all the endgame gear from the store by stealing – it would make the game far too easy for the player if it were possible to take Daedric weapons by sneaking into a shop and pick-pocketing the shopkeeper.
The items in the chest are too advanced, and there are too many of them, for it to be an Easter Egg, and it’s too well hidden with no reference or hint from the developers like other Easter Eggs.
Here is a video if your having trouble finding it:
If you have any problems finding this please comment or post in the forums and I will help you out as soon as possible.
