Imperial Dragon Armor or Emperor's Armor, is a set of armor worn only by the emperors of the Tamrielic Empire. It was presumably first worn by Tiber Septim, and thus became a tradition for the emperors following him. Martin Septim wears a set during the Defense of Bruma quest. The Hero of Kvatch was allowed to wear Imperial Dragon Armor in a change of tradition by Chancellor Ocato, head of the Elder Council.


Imperial Dragon Armor is the reward for completing the main quest. The armor is special-ordered and can be picked up from a table in the Armory in the Imperial City Prison District 14 days after completing the "Light the Dragonfires" quest.

Physical appearanceEdit

Its appearance is similar to that of Legion Armor and Imperial Watch Armor but with different coloration and patterns. The armor is elegantly crafted, with gems embedded into the golden metal of the plates.


Although the Main Quest must be completed to obtain it, the armor is rather weak. As Light Armor, it provides less protection than Mithril Armor, and as Heavy Armor it provides less protection than Orcish Armor. However, it is unique because it is enchanted.

Attributes by pieceEdit

The type of armor received depends on which armor skill is higher, light or heavy. If both skills are the same, the heavy armor version will be rewarded.
