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

It can be crafted, purchased, or found in random loot. It is the third best type of light armor, surpassed only by dragonscale armor and Deathbrand Armor, which is added by Dragonborn.


Unenchanted pieces of armor will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 36 and enchanted variants can be found at level 37. However, some enchanted pieces may be found as low as level 29-31. Locations include:

Glass Armor requires a smithing level of 70 and the Glass Smithing perk to create. Pieces can be forged at a blacksmith's forge with the following components:

To forge the complete set, the following components are required:

  • Refined Malachite x9
  • Refined Moonstone x5
  • Leather Strips x8
  • Leather x3

Pieces can be upgraded with a Refined Malachite ingot at a workbench and also benefits from the Glass Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
