- It can be found in the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary after completing the quest "With Friends Like These...."
- Alternatively, a Shrouded Cowl Maskless can be obtained during the quest "Destroy the Dark Brotherhood!," as it can be looted from the bodies of the dead assassins.
Unlike the masked Shrouded Cowl, the Shrouded Cowl Maskless cannot be improved at a workbench.
Wearing this piece of armor grants the following skill bonuses:
- Fortify Archery: 20 points
- Unlike the other Shrouded Armor pieces, this piece cannot be improved at a workbench.
- Even though the item has no mask, its picture in the inventory does have a mask.
- For males, regardless of race, both the normal and Maskless shrouded cowl will not have a mask, effectively rendering this piece of armor obsolete for males.
