Ahzidal's Armor is a unique set of ancient Nord armor found in Dragonborn.

Despite being identical to ancient Nord armor in appearance, it has a higher base armor rating and weighs more. Ahzidal's armor matches steel plate armor in terms of armor rating.

Pieces can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot at a workbench and benefits from the Advanced Armors perk, which doubles the improvement.

This enchantment only functions when exactly four relics are equipped. Equipping a fifth relic will stop the enchantment from functioning. His dragon priest mask can be used as one of the relics needed for this effect. While only Ahzidal's Boots of Waterwalking mention the effect in their description, they are not required for the effect.
