The Ancient Shrouded Gloves are a unique pair of shrouded gloves and part of the Ancient Shrouded Armor set found in Skyrim.


The gloves, along with the rest of the armor set, can be obtained at the conclusion of the Dark Brotherhood side quest "Locate the Assassin of Old."

The quest is given by Olava the Feeble and can only be accepted if the bonus requirement for Breaching Security has been met.

The armor itself can be found on the corpse of an assassin inside a secret room in Hag's End. While Hag's End can be entered before accepting the quest, the pull chain to open the secret door will not appear until after Olava has been visited.


Wearing this piece of armor grants the following bonuses:


The Ancient Shrouded Gloves can be upgraded at a workbench with piece of leather and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, however they do not benefit from any Smithing perks.

This means the gloves cannot be improved past flawless quality without boosting the Smithing skill over 100. This can be achieved by wearing enchanted apparel and/or using potions to fortify Smithing.
