Main article: Armor (Morrowind)

Ancient Steel Armor is a complete set of heavy armor in The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon. It is said to have been worn by the fabled Snow Prince during the Battle of the Moesring.[1] The set is unenchanted and looks identical to standard steel armor.


A note found on a corpse at the bottom of Lake Fjalding reveals the locations of the armor pieces:

  • Most of the set is found in Jolgeirr Barrow.
  • The helm is found in Frykte.
  • The shield does not appear in the game, but can be obtained on the PC by using the console:

The enchant values indicated are from the game's Construction Set. During gameplay these values are divided
by 10, and rounded down to the nearest whole number.


Each piece of this nine-piece set has one additional point of base armor rating compared to its standard steel armor counterpart. With 100 points of Heavy Armor skill the complete set (including shield) provides 487 armor points, while a complete set of standard steel armor provides 451, a difference of 36 points. The pieces' enchant value, monetary value, and weight are all equal to standard steel armor. The set's major drawback is its item health, which is half that of standard steel armor.
