Locate the Assassin of Old[edit | edit source]

After completing the miscellaneous quest "Receive a reading from Olava the Feeble," this miscellaneous quest is received, and begins in Deepwood Redoubt. Immediately after passing through the burial room close to the entrance, a chest and a dead adventurer can be found by jumping up the rocks on the right.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The 100% poison resistance of the Ancient Shrouded Armor is extremely useful against Spriggans.
  • Multiple sets of his armor can be obtained using the Spell dead thrall. The Dragonborn can simply take his armor, cast the spell on his body, and leave to a different area. After returning his armor will re-spawn on his body. This exploit can be repeated as many times as desired.
  • The Assassin of Old makes a poor thrall. Since he was never given any health, he will almost always die in one hit.
