It is one of the earliest forms of armor available to the Dragonborn, given by Hadvar if he is followed, and lootable from the corpses Imperial soldiers at Helgen during the quest "Unbound."

Worn by Imperial soldiers throughout Skyrim. Several sets can be looted from the corpses of Imperial soldiers if the Stormcloaks are joined during the Civil War questline.

Fixed locationsEdit

  • From the corpses of soldiers in Helgen during the quest Unbound.

SmithingEdit

Pieces can be created at a blacksmith's forge, but a Smithing level of 20 and the Steel Smithing perk are required to forge these items.confirmation needed

Pieces can be upgraded with a piece leather at a workbench. Although the Steel Smithing perk is required to craft the armor, it does not double how far can the pieces be improved.confirmation needed

VariantEdit

A variant of the armor piece, called Studded Imperial Armor is available. It replaces the leather collar around the neck and on the back with chainmail. It grants the same level of protection as the regular piece but it cannot be improved at a workbench due to a bug. One can be obtained from Beirand if the medium armor is chosen after joining the Imperials.

TriviaEdit

  • The Studded Imperial Armor is a combination of leather and chain mail, resembling Late Roman Legionary Lorica Hamata.
  • If an Imperial-affiliated guard is spoken to while wearing the full armor set, they will say that the Dragonborn looks like an Imperial scout.
  • Stormcloak Soldiers and affiliated Hold Guards may confront the Dragonborn wearing a full set of Legion armor, stating, "You got a lot of nerve, coming here, dressed like an Imperial Legionnaire". If the Dragonborn replies with "I'm loyal to the Empire and I don't care who knows!" the soldier will make a reminder that a war is going on and attack the Dragonborn along with any nearby allies.
