The Armor of the Old Gods is a unique light armor set. It is an enchanted set of Forsworn armor and is one of the two rewards that can be obtained for completing the quest "No One Escapes Cidhna Mine."
Acquisition[edit | edit source]
Madanach will award the full set just before the final showdown at the conclusion of "No One Escapes Cidhna Mine." In addition, if Madanach and his allies are killed during the final battle, Thonar Silver-Blood will also reward the Silver-Blood family ring, provided Thonar survives.
It is also possible to obtain both the set and the ring if Madanach is killed after he gives the armor and before he breaks loose into Markarth.

- Both boots and gauntlets appear as they should when the armor is not equipped. Restarting the game and loading a save with all the pieces equipped fixes the problem, but as soon as any pieces is removed, the error returns.
- This is a visual bug and does not affect the armor's effectiveness or enchantments.
- Simply quicksaving and quickloading will fix this bug, although not permanently. Repeat as needed.
- Solution: dropping then picking up and re-equipping the armor can also provide a temporary fix.
- The Helmet of the Old Gods, when equipped on a Khajiit, will appear only as feathers floating around the Dragonborn's head.
- Savior's Hide, will disappear. The boots and gauntlets, when equipped with the
