Elven Light Armor is a piece of light armor and part of the Elven light armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

It is almost identical to its regular and gilded counterparts, however it lacks pauldrons and it weighs less. It only provides a little more protection than leather armor.


The appearance of the Elven Light Armor in the world is not level dependent. It can only be found as dropped random loot from Thalmor soldiers.

Fixed locationsEdit


Elven Light Armor cannot be created at a blacksmith's forge. It can be upgraded with a refined moonstone at a workbench and also benefits from the Elven Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
