Falmer Armor is a unique set of heavy armor found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It consists of five pieces: helmet, armor, boots, gauntlets and shield.


Mzinchaleft Depths – The set can be found sitting on a table at the top of a ramp to the right behind a Expert level locked Dwemer gate. The set respawns in the ruin after 30 in-game days.


All pieces can be upgraded with Chaurus Chitin at a workbench.

Originally, the Steel Smithing perk would double the improvement, however, with the addition of Dawnguard this has been changed to the Advanced Armors perk. The helmet does not benefit from any Smithing perks.

Two variants are added with Dawnguard:


  • The Falmer Shield has a higher armor rating than the Dwarven Shield, even though the rest of the Dwarven armor set has higher ratings than the Falmer armor set.
  • Even though the Falmer Helmet has no eyeholes (since the Falmer are blind), the Dragonborn and followers can still see while wearing it. This also applies to the heavy version of the armor.
  • The Falmer Armor is one of the most revealing armors for females, one other being Forsworn Armor.
