Dragon Claws are items found in game that act as keys to certain doors and puzzles throughout Skyrim. Each Dragon Claw has three glyphs on it. The glyphs must be used as a reference when the player encounters a door with three rotating wheels and an area where the claw itself can be placed. Turning each wheel to match the correct Dragon Claw glyphs, and inserting the Dragon Claw will allow entry to the room(s) beyond.
Each claw is unique. They are mostly made of precious gems or ores and are usually quite valuable. Each Dragon claw will open one specific puzzle door deep within the heart of an ancient Nordic dungeon. The solution to the puzzle door is written in the three circular animal glyphs on the underside of the claw. It is possible to examine the claw, and thus the solution, more closely in the Items menu by selecting the claw and pressing zoom.
