Blackguard's Armor is a unique set of light armor found in Raven Rock on Solstheim. Visually, it is almost identical to Linwe's Armor Set.


The full set is in a display case in the basement of Glover Mallory's House. The basement can only be entered after completing the quest "Paid in Full" for Glover Mallory.

Once completed, Glover will grant a key to his basement and any items in it can be taken without incident. The set respawns, along with most of the rest of the items in the basement, after a certain amount of time.


The enchantments on this armor set are identical to those found on the Guild Master's Armor Set, but the boots, gloves and hood are 5% more powerful.


All pieces 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 this armor cannot be improved past flawless quality without boosting the smithing skill over 100. This can be achieved by wearing enchanted items and/or using blacksmithing potions to fortify smithing.
