The boots can be upgraded at a workbench with an iron ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, however it does not benefit from any Smithing perks. This means the armor 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.
Wearing this piece of armor grants the following skill bonuses:
The enchantment is considered unique, and thus Predator's Grace cannot be disenchanted.
- Predator's Grace is slightly more useful than other footwear enchanted with Muffle, like the shrouded boots, due to the additional 1% Fortify Stamina Regen.
- In addition, the boots do not require the Dragonborn to join the Dark Brotherhood and so are a more viable option for one who prefers stealth and does not wish to be involved with the Dark Brotherhood.
