The quest Unfathomable Depths rewards the Dragonborn with a permanent effect called Ancient Knowledge. This effect is supposed to grant a 25% bonus to armor when wearing a full set of Dwarven Armor, however it actually gives a 25% bonus to both all light and heavy armor types.
- When a guard is approached, they may compliment the Dragonborn's armor and say "Fine armor you've got there. Dwarven make, am I right?".
- Calcelmo, a scholar in Understone Keep, has a particular interest in many of the rare Dwarven items, and will sometimes ask the Dragonborn to bring him any pieces of Dwarven armor if found.
- Due to the fact that Dwarven Armor fits all characters, it is assumed that the Dwemer were of normal height despite being known as Dwarves.
