|Ancient Nord Gauntlets|
|Class: Heavy Armor, Gauntlets|
|Upgrade Material: Iron Ingot|
|Perk: Daedric Smithing|
They are a variant of iron gauntlets and have similar base attributes, however what makes them superior is that they benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk which vastly improves their armor rating when upgraded. This makes them comparable with some of the higher tier armors.
Ancient Nord Gauntlets are relatively rare as they cannot be obtained from defeated draugr or crafted under normal circumstances. However the entire set including; armor piece, helm, boots and gauntlets can be looted from the Dragon Cultist in Forelhost during the quest "Siege on the Dragon Cult".
