|Class: Heavy Armor|
|Upgrade Material: Ebony Ingot|
|Perk: Daedric Smithing|
Daedric Armor is a set of heavy armor available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is extremely heavy, but also has the highest armor rating in the base game. The armor set contains five pieces: a helmet, boots, gauntlets, a cuirass and greaves, and an optional shield. A weapon set of the same name is also available.
Pieces of Daedric armor can be smithed at a blacksmith's forge or within the basement (known as the Midden) of the College of Winterhold using Ebony armor, Daedra hearts, black soul gems, and centurion dynamo cores.
True to its predecessors, Daedric Armor design is demonic in appearance with a several spikes protruding from various parts of the body. Sections of the armor glow red in dark areas; this does not, however, affect sneaking.
Unenchanted pieces of daedric armor will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 48, and enchanted armor will begin to appear at level 49.
- Found as random loot in chests.
- Unenchanted pieces dropped as random loot by Revered or Legendary Dragons.
- Enchanted and unenchanted pieces, as well as Deadric weaponry, may be bought through the Dremora Merchant.
Ebony ingots can be smelted from ebony ore or purchased from blacksmiths. Daedra hearts can be purchased from alchemists, Enthir at the College of Winterhold, or found on dead Dremora. Pieces can be upgraded with an Ebony ingot at a workbench and also benefit from the Daedric Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
