Nightingale Armor is a piece of unique light armor and part of the Nightingale Armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

This piece, along with the rest of the set, is given to the Dragonborn by Karliah before performing the initiation ritual of the Nightingales during the quest "Trinity Restored." All pieces are obtained when activating the Armor Stone, emblazoned with the Nightingales symbol, inside Nightingale Hall.

Enchantment[edit | edit source]

The piece bears an enchantment, the magnitude of which is dependent on character level. Three tiers are available and the item with the strongest enchantment can be obtained after level 32. The character level when the quest "Trinity Restored" is started determines which tier will be granted.

Wearing this piece of armor grants the following bonuses:

Smithing[edit | edit source]

The armor can be upgraded at a workbench with void salts and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, however it does not benefit from any Smithing perks.

This means it cannot be improved past flawless quality without boosting the Smithing skill over 100. This can be achieved by using enchanted items and/or blacksmithing potions to fortify Smithing.
