Smithing[edit | edit source]
Roggi's Ancestral Shield can be upgraded at a workbench with an iron ingot, 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.
