"For centuries the secret of making Elven armor was a closely guarded secret on Summerset Isle. Then the Betrayal of Ulvul Llaren brought it to the rest of Tamriel."
Revus Sarvani, Light Armor Forging

Elven Armor is a set of light armor that appears in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Typically worn by Thalmor soldiers, Elven Armor can be crafted, purchased, or found as random loot. It has the third lowest armor rating of the craftable light armor sets, after leather and hide. It is, however the lightest craftable armor and the second lightest overall being preceded only by the Ancient Shrouded Armor.

VariantsEdit

Elven Armor is available in two variants:

  1. Elven Armor - The regular variant. Unenchanted pieces will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 12 and enchanted variants can be found at level 13.
  2. Elven Light Armor - A weaker variant. Pieces appear throughout Skyrim from level 1.

In addition, a stronger cuirass called Elven Gilded Armor is available.

LocationsEdit

SmithingEdit

Elven Armor requires a Smithing level of 30 and the Elven Smithing perk to create. Pieces can be forged at a blacksmith's forge with the following components:

Pieces can be upgraded with refined moonstone at a workbench and also benefit from the Elven Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.

TriviaEdit

  • Elven Armor uses an eagle motif in its design. This is reference to the Altmer's chief deity, Auri-El.
  • Many Nords, especially Stormcloaks, often laugh at the Dragonborn if wearing Elven Armor, saying, "Hah, Elven Armor eh? What's wrong with good old Nord Steel?"
