Ebony Armor is a heavy armor set in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Ebony Armor can be forged, if the Ebony Smithing perk from the Smithing skill tree is selected at level 80 or above. The set contains five pieces, including a shield, boots, a cuirass, gauntlets, and helmet. Pieces of Ebony Armor are used at the Atronach Forge in the Midden to craft pieces of Daedric Armor.
Comparisons and variations
Ebony Armor has appeared in every main Elder Scrolls title since Arena, where it usually serves as the set statistically outdone only by Daedric armor. Skyrim, however, omitted greaves, dropping the count from six to five pieces in the set.
After level 32, Ebony Armor can be found as randomized loot in containers and on leveled foes. After level 33, enchanted variations of Ebony Armor can be found. Blacksmiths and other armor vendors begin to sell articles of Ebony armor at these levels.
