The Ancient Helmet of the Unburned is a unique Ancient Nord Helmet found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

This helmet is unique in the fact that it provides an elemental resistance, while being an item worn on the head. Elemental resistances are usually limited to shields, boots and jewelry.


This helmet differs in appearance depending on the gender of the wearer. Male characters have two curved horns, much like the Iron Helmet. Female characters have a helmet with what appear to be deer or elk antlers.


It can be found in a corner behind a locked gate in the Labyrinthian Tribune, during the quest "The Staff of Magnus."


Wearing this piece of armor grants the following bonuses:


The helmet can be upgraded at a workbench with an Iron Ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk. It also benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
