The Savior's Hide can be found at the end of the Daedric quest "Ill Met By Moonlight". After killing and skinning Sinding, Hircine appears to take the werewolf hide. Subsequently, he explains that he has blessed the skin with his Daedric powers and transforms it into the Savior's Hide.
Wearing this piece of armor grants the following skill bonuses:
Due to the poison and magic resistance, this armor is effective against Falmer. If the Dragonborn is a Redguard, Bosmer, or has the Alchemy perk Snakeblood, wearing Savior's Hide grants 100% resistance to poison.
- Occasionally, the eyes on the werewolf motif will glow.
- Savior's Hide is one of the most revealing armors in the game, the others being Forsworn Armor and different Fur armor variants.
- It is said that the Savior's Hide was awarded by Hircine to the first and only mortal to escape Hircine's hunting grounds.
- It is possible to obtain both the Savior's Hide and the Hircine's Ring if Sinding's help is accepted, and, if after killing all hunters, Sinding is killed. Hircine then appears and gives the Dragonborn the hide. Hircine's Ring is also collected at this time.
- Placing the Savior's Hide on a follower such as Lydia (Housecarl obtained by becoming a Thane in Whiterun) will not result in her wearing it.
