Not to be confused with Ancient Nord Armor.

Ancient Nord Armor is a piece of heavy armor and part of the Ancient Nord Armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

It is a variant of Iron Armor and has similar base attributes, however what makes it superior is it benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk which vastly improves its armor rating when upgraded. This makes it comparable with some of the higher tier armors.


It bears a resemblance to the decayed armor worn by Draugr, however, what makes it relatively rare is the fact that it cannot be obtained from defeated Draugr or crafted under normal circumstances, but it can be obtained it by completing the Companions' quest line, allowing it to be smithed at the Skyforge.



This item can only be crafted at the Skyforge once the Companions main questline has been completed. It can be created with the following components:

It can be upgraded with an Iron Ingot at a workbench and also benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
