Because the Oblivion has gone well so far, here's one for those of us who travel north of the border. Here you can post all the arms and armour your skyrim characters make use of.


To start:

Ravos from Skyrim, despite being level 40, can usually be found wearing improved fur armor (the variant that cover the most flesh) enchanted to increase health, leather boots and bracers, the bracers are enchanted to increase one-handed damage, he wears a plain hood that he enchanted to increase bow damage, he has a necklace that also increases one-handed damage and a ring that increases stamina. He also has a suit of legendary glass armor for occasional use. He uses a legendary glass bow of frost damage and dual-wields two legendary glass swords, one does lightning and one does fire damage. He keeps two steel daggers of soul trapping handy aswell.

Excellent idea for a thread!

Aravi, my Khajiit, wears different things based on the temperature and how likely she is to get into trouble.

Similar to Ravos, my Khajiit carries fur armor, the type that fully covers the body. She wears it, fur bracers, and some fluffy (modded) leg wraps whenever she is somewhere with snow. Aravi dislikes having her fingers or toes covered, so even in the harsh north she is somewhat barefoot. Her fur armor is enchanted with resist frost.

Down south around Riften, she usually wears considerably less. The Forsworn outfit is similar to what she wears there.

The rest of the time (and when she expects trouble) she prefers a set of Elven armor.

The weapons and jewelry she wears changes pretty often, but she always has 2 sets of golden earrings that are enchanted to reduce the cost of restoration magic by 5%.

Time for the Skyrim Fashion Show! biggrin.gif

Hervor started out wearing a mail hauberk from tehxens Chainmail Hauberks. She wears a Spangenhelm I made with some help from the Open Face Helmets mod. Her shield is one from Matherian Viking Shields. Finally she wears the vanilla Fur Boots and Fur Gauntlets that the Stormcloaks and guards do. Her weapons are the Atmoran Sword from Chronicles of Steel, and her bow is the Nord Bow from the same mod.

Later on Hervor joined the Dawnguard, and suited up in the red Dawnguard Armor with boots and gauntlets. She kept her Spangenhelm though, and her Atmoran Sword and Nord Bow.


Persephone went through several gear phases. When she was alive and named Kore, she wore Ancient Nord Armor and carried an Ancient Nord Greatsword named Blessing. Though of course at that time (Alessia's reign), they were brand new. When she rose from the dead as Persephone, she kept the armor, but now summoned up a ghostly version of her old sword, now named Malediction.

As she began to act more like the living, and remember more of what it once felt like to be alive, she put aside her tombwear and updated her outfit. She moved to a suit of white Eisen Platte Armor, along with a hood from Ezio's Assassin's Creed Armor (sorry, cannot find a link), and finally a cape from Ranger's Cape, which I recolored to be grey. She also stopped using her ghost sword Malediction, and instead replaced it with a standard steel greatsword.

Some folks might be thinking fur armor but really you can Smith the Oblivion out of cheaper armors. I was surprised when Lord Haaf-Mersey was active that he could improve iron and steel quite a bit, and really his perks were only up about half way.

Love dem pics, SR

Thanks RG wink.gif

One of the things I like about Skyrim is just what you said. Between smithing and the Light/Heavy Armor perks, it allows a character to wear steel or iron all the way through the game without it crippling them at the higher levels. My character Le Chevalier D'Eon's Eisen Platte has the same stats as Elven, one of the lower rank armors, and she still eventually hit the Armor Cap wearing it.
Grits
I like the flexibility with perks and worn enchantments, too. If a character isnít going to practice Smithing they can improve their skill in the weapon or armor to help them be more Fearsome even with the lower tier equipment. Most of my characters go that route.

Lildereth is an archer from Cyrodiil (Oblivion). In Skyrim she wears more of a variety. The Triss outfit with the green cape Abiene made for her is a favorite, but sheís also often in her Falkreath Ranger armor or lately the Hunter armor from Immersive Armors. She wears the fur armor with a fur hood and mantle in the snow. She tried a fur cloak, but the darn thing was huge and probably weighed more than she did. Her necklace from Jerric looks a little different in Skyrim, but it still has claws and such on it and carries a warming charm (Resist Frost).

In Skyrim I made Shimai for her from the hunting bow. It has unimproved Elven stats and a firing speed of 1.0. She uses poison and perks for most of her damage. Shooting quickly with a weaker bow suits her very well.
Acadian
SubRosa and Grits, thanks for the screenshots. Skyrim certainly has some neat looking outfits, between vanilla and mods. happy.gif

Well, all my female characters are Bear Riders, and don't wear much at all, because the bears prefer it that way. biggrin.gif Bear Riders also prefer two-handed weapons so they get a chance to swing them without dismounting. Outfits are custom, weapons are vanilla. Fleur (Battle-axes) wears a scrap of leather that still hits the Armour cap. Pala (Greatswords) prefers Eleven, Thulia (Dawnbreaker and shield) wears Deadric.

Galen Vhoth, my Dunmer assassin, wore the DB Ancient set, and wielded the Blade of Woe with a similarly enchanted one-hand sword in the other hand. He'd advanced Sneak to get the 15x multiplier for daggers, and so that was his preferred offence. He's the test character for the Elf Kids, so his equipment is all standard stuff.

Ra'Vish, the Khajiit Arch-Mage, naturally wore the robes once he had the post. Before that, various lesser robes. He didn't carry any weapons, only spells (and potions, especially restore magicka!) His female companions get to make all the fashion statements, and he hands over any weapons they'll use, and sells the rest.

Gol gro-Molag, the latest, is staunchly Orcish, and will just upgrade his Orcish armor, now that he can do so. He's not so fussy about his weapons, as long as they're both one-handed axes. He likes the look of the Dawnguard ones, but is currently using steel ones that he's tempered, but not yet enchanted. He may add a soul-trap on one hand, and absorb health on the other soon, to see how that works out. Gol is the character who will build an Orcish Longhouse if my Hearthfire mod gets made. He's towing Borghak the Steel-Heart around, and trying to get her interested in something a bit more revealing than Steel Armour, but he doesn't yet have the Smithing skill to make anything she prefers.
Vital
Wow guys, some amazing characters here!

KC, hearing about Aravi sent me straight to her fan art thread. Don't Skyrim khajiit look awesome?

SR, once again I think all your characters look great. Hervor's spangenheim looks similar but much better than that shocking dawnguard helmet (not the closed one). Persephone's plate armor is so cool and I love the idea of playing an undead character!

I agree about the gear, except for the odd occasion Ravos never needs anything better than his furs. It's the same with a few of my higher-level characters. Even without the perks and bringing them up to the armor cap, Ravos gives out so much damage and his potions and restoration magic is so powerful, with glass armor it becomes too easy.

Grits, Lildereth's gear is so fitting for a bosmer. The things Ravos would do for a set of modded armor like that falkreath ranger set...

Ghastley, I think I've seen a few pics of that bear rider armor somewhere. Such a cool idea! Don't think you'd want to get on Galen's bad side and Ra'Vish is keeping it simple in the robes like any mage would. An orcish longhouse for hearthfire would be awesome.

Hello everybody, good afternoon. Today's fashion moment is...

Mycharonna the Ice Witch emot-ninja1.gif

IPB Image

WEARING
Hooded Necromancer Robes (Magicka Regen + 75%)

Peasant's Clothing (see Explanation below)

Hide Boots of Dwindling Flames (Fire Resist +40%)

Shrouded Gloves (double-damage back stab)

Jewelry: Necklace of Remedy (+20% Health Regen),
............ Ring of Replenishing (+60% Magicka Regen)

WIELDING:
Iron Dagger of Fright (Creatures & NPCs up to L15 flee for 30 secs.)
Orcish Daggar of Soul Trap
Orcish Daggar of Frost (+24 pts cold damage)
Staff of Fireballs
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Explanation: Amongst her many talents, Mycharonna can shape-shift. She's been doing it since she was a young child, and long before becoming a vampire. One of her fave tricks is to shape shift from her foul-smelling necro-robes to one of her peasant outfits, which are several plain Skyrim dresses, usually with small magical bonuses. She transfers from one outfit to the next instantly with one of the Xbox's voice commands. Since I don't have to go into the menu to change her clothes, it makes it seem like she is indeed casting an illusionary shape-shifting spell.

Whenever she goes into a civilized area, she shape-shifts from robes to clothes. She can only do this from Stages 1 thru 3 though. Once she's S4, the evil within becomes too great, and everybody sees her for what she is.

Mycharonna also has a circlet, ring, amulet, and bracers, all which boost her Alchemy skill. ph34r.gif

So far as weapons go, she mostly uses the three daggars mentioned above, she rarely uses the Staff of Fireballs. Since she mostly uses frost magics, that staff is just there for variety.

Attia left Helgen in light imperial armour, but decided something less controversial was appropriate for travel, considering she's currently not in the legion. She's not that fond of the Nordic style of armour and couldn't do hide or studded armour, luckily she found leather to be more to her liking and is wearing a set of that (except the helmet). She weilds a steel sword and an iron banded shield, relying more on her shield and then counter attacking with her sword.

Cool thing I've found is in the attempt to replicate roman combat techniques: crouching while in melee combat, with a sword and board character, holding the shield up and waiting for the opponent to open up before you strike. sort of replicates the roman combat when using the sword instead of spear...

Interesting. I think i know what you are describing.

PhonAntiPhon
Eilidh managed to grab a set of studded armour from an obligingly deceased bandit after having escaped from Helgen with only some cobbled together stuff.
The rest is Imperial cast-offs.

She has a decent cloak and hood, again courtesy of the local colour although until arriving at Bleakfalls she had a fairly inadequate burlap one.

She remains continually irritated that her own armour, a decent set of Elven, was confiscated along with her weapons upon her incarceration in Helgen.

Speaking of weapons, having been initially forced by circumstance to use a sword, she has managed to acquire a steel warhammer and a bow of ancient origin. Much more to her liking...
Darkness Eternal
Lycus travels quite a bit. He uses his steel-plate armor and steel-plate gears. But when he's out about in hunting season he uses his forsworn armor. Or the armor of the Old Gods. He doesn't stand with the Forsworn's political ideals, but he does worship their same gods. Or should I say "god". At least the ones from the Second Era.


The Forsworn's armor doesn't provide much protection, but Lycus makes up for it when he's armed to the teeth with daggers and swords. He's much faster than he looks, so he uses the speed and ferocity of his attacks to prevent foes from getting him.

In cities and towns, and sometimes even when he's strolling out in the wilderness, Lycus wears mundane clothes like ragged trousers on those special nights of his escapades. He'll put his trousers with a piece of goat leg, or roast venison nearby so he can follow the scent and remain in the area when he's in his true and bestial form. Instead of sneaking into a village early in the morning to steal clothes, he'll pack his own trousers and roughspun tunic.

Despite his size, imposing physique and scary/ugly facial features, he has a remarkable talent for blending in just by wearing these clothes. People won't look twice for a tall Imperial who hasn't shaved in ages walking about in peasant's clothing. Gives him the look of an honest laborer who cuts woods and plants for a living.
Vital
Lycus sounds fun smile.gif

Most people in skyrim look massive, ugly, dirty and whatnot, so I'm sure it's not the hardest place for a werewolf to fit in. The locals don't exactly seem to be savvy when it comes to recognising werewolves, surely someone has heard the howling and seen the hair on the companions and made the connection laugh.gif

That actually is something to mention: what our characters wear when they're in their 'off' time. There usually is quite a difference.

Indeed.
Eilidh "on duty" - Steel plate armour, skins.
Eilidh "on duty" - Fairly revealing, pretty much down-at-heel clothing. It blends in and well, advertises at the same time...
Normally in Imperial areas she'll always have her head covered as well, unless she's "on duty"... ahem...
Vital
In towns Ravos generally wears his furs if it's cold or if he's trying to look the part. Otherwise he'll wear any lower class/simple looking clothes or the belted tunic. If he's meeting with a Jarl or other important figure he will either wear his good armour (glass at the moment) or fine clothes.

He might wear some kind of robes if he's doing things such as alchemy or enchanting, and of course he always his blacksmiths aprons when smithing tongue.gif

Oh and of course he has a wide array of jewelry to aid him in all these things. A circlet for alchemy, rings for smithing an amulet for trading. Otherwise he wears his bond of matrimony and amulet of Kynareth.
McBadgere
OOooh, just out of curiosity I loaded my Super-Khajiit Tank character J'zirlo...("Brother" of J'zargo)...My God he's awesome!!... laugh.gif ...

Currently his armour and weapons are all Stahlrim...Armour is in a heavy stylee...Weapons are bow and longsword...Coupled with the shield...'m muchly happy with it...

They do 126 and 123 damage respectively...And his armour rating is 1136... happy.gif ...

He's Level 66, and my playtime is 222 hours, 26 mins...

It's fair to say, I miss the big-guy...I may have to drag him out of retirement for a time... biggrin.gif ...Must have a notebook to make sure I stick to a roundabout wander plan...

In Oblivion all of my characters had separate town outfits to wear. But in Skyrim the fancy clothes don't do anything for me, and the ordinary clothing looks too drab for most of my characters. So they often don't change outfits when in town. There are a few exceptions though.

Mielikki's town clothes were the non-hooded, blue Dunmer clothes.

Jingu Kogo wore a modded set of robes and sandals.

Le Chevalier D'Eon wore the Triss Outfit in town.
Acadian
Buffy's wearing the Triss outfit. I've loved the outfit since I first saw it in Oblivion. The problem there was that it was cut very much for a woman of more . . . Nordic proportions than Buffy. Happily, the Skyrim version fits her perfectly!

And she's wielding a conjured Mystic bow (and spells of course).
haute ecole rider
Like SubRosa's, my main (and only, thus far) Skyrim character has stuck pretty much to her Elven outfit.

Of course, she hasn't yet headed north beyond the snow line, so her set of fur gear are still packed away. She is looking for moonstone ore so she can upgrade her Elven set, and we'll RP that it gets the same exposure stats as the upgraded Fur (Full exposure protection).

She is currently carrying an Orcish mace and an Orcish bow. She is definitely a mace girl. On the vanilla playthrough I got her to try out the swords and greatswords (I'm more familiar with those thanks to Julian in OB). However, on this go-around, with the mods I'm using, she is insisting on using the mace. The bow comes in handy for sniping when she wants to thin the numbers some and she's on high ground. At this time she has over 200 steel arrows and almost 40 Orcish. All unenchanted equipment.

She is using a fur cloak that she did enchant with a Resist Frost enchantment. It helps on those cold nights!
Acadian
Rider, great to see you in Skyrim. Elven armor (with furs available), mace and bow sound great. Is she using a shield?

Buffy still loves her Triss outfits. Being the magical elf she is, she can (alteration magicks) change it from among three color variations. She did find herself a bit underdressed for the snow however. Rather than carrying mantled mage robes and/or furs however, she opted to get a nice cape and cowl that pretty well matches the Triss outfit. That and a couple more rings enchanted with resist frost (to complement the toe ring Jerric gave her) and she actually has the cold thing under control. Oh, and she's taken to wearing a couple of hawk feathers in her hair. Dunno why.

Umm, no. Alise prefers to keep some kind of magicka handy in her left hand. She did try dual-wielding in the vanilla playthrough, but went back to keeping either destruction or conjuration spells handy. She also keeps healing spells hotkeyed so she can heal herself or her followers as necessary.

Welcome back HER. smile.gif Nice to see lots of us in Skyrim these days.

Marius wears a combination of armor based on looks and enchantments. He does no smithing or enchanting so he has to work with what he finds or earns. When heís about to possibly get into real trouble he wears the Guildmasterís Armor, Nightingale Boots, Nightingale Gauntlets, Linweís Hood (because it looks better than the Shrouded Hood which has an addition +5 to archery), and a black hide cloak he found that increases his Magicka Resistance.

The Nightingale Bow is still his favorite. He buys potions to make the enchantments more effective. Slowing his target is very important to him.

In melee he likes two shock-enchanted daggers, Elven and Glass. His defense is pretty poor so he needs to get the fight over with as soon as possible. When heís up against a two-handed fighter he breaks out the Nightingale Blade for the extra reach and health absorption. He carries Chillrend but heís rarely sure that his opponent lacks frost resistance. Itís mostly to ease his fear of getting cornered by a fire dragon. Plus he thinks it looks cool. And if he leaves it at home someone might steal it. whistling.gif

This is still his favorite outfit for around town. He likes to look colorful but not too fancy.
Acadian
Aww, Marius is so roguishly handsome. I sure hope Jerric doesn't rearrange his face when Marius tries to steal Jerric's amulet! ohmy.gif laugh.gif
Renee
I agree. Whatalookah he is. That first pic is like a Mycharonna pic. Nice and dark.

What sort of damage do his shock daggars do?

Grits
Aww, thanks guys. Luckily NPC Jerric is parked in the Dragonsreach dungeon room that has all of the mead barrels, so Marius could probably braid his back hair without him noticing. Marius wore a mask for the job, though, just in case! laugh.gif

Mariusís Elven Dagger of Lightning does an extra 25 points of shock damage and his Glass Dagger of Thunderbolts does an extra 20 of shock. They are both unimproved but Marius has a couple of perks in Armsman. I play him on Expert so he has a bit of trouble when he has to get up close with the fighting.
Renee
Nice! Mych has three daggars she usually carries, although she never dual-wields. One simply harvests souls. That one is orcish. She's got another orcish daggar that does something like 24 pts of frost damage (she is an ice witch, after all), and the third daggar is iron. It causes anybody up to a certain level (I think it's 20 or 25) to flee.

Expert eh? huh.gif

Grits
Yep, I donít want him to feel too powerful and warrior-like. When he sees those roaming bandits with their heavily armored chiefs he just sneaks on by. He carries a selection of poisons in case he gets cornered, but on Expert he is motivated to still act like a rogue. He has to choose fights he can end quickly. On Adept itís too tempting to turn into a warrior and carve through a bunch of guys.

Oh, and he did pull Chillrend out today in Stony Creek Cave. biggrin.gif He was out of poison from this event that occurred on the way there. Even with Rune (I made him into a follower)and Arissa (mod) with him they were getting their asses kicked, so he gambled on the chance of paralysis effect. It worked. I love that sword!
Renee
Ah I see. Since Haaf-Mersey I've gotten in the habit of starting my characters on Apprentice, but then bumping the difficulty up to Adept if they start becoming Ubers at higher levels. I think Mych still has Apprentice going, I mean we're talking a dead-is-dead game in which two or three super-fireballs could kill her. I eventually bumped Haaf-Mersey's game up to Adept though. Started getting bored when he'd simply mow through vampires or bandits like bowling pins.

I think Master Baytor's game (if I ever return to it) started on Adept. I went for the classic default Xbox experience there. smile.gif

Crazy pic. I am counting 3 dragons in total?

SubRosa
Doesn't the Sky version of Chillrend also paralyze people for 10 seconds per hit? I thought it was so overpowered just from that I never used it.

Wow, that's a really bad day to work at Windhelm's stables! I after the fight the first guard said: "My brother's out fighting dragons, and I get stuck out here in the sticks with this crazy old woman."
Grits
Two dragons. Two was enough! laugh.gif The Khajiit caravan was there, too, so it was quite an event. Marius took a position on the hillside and shot over the mosh pit when they landed.

I like enemies to hit hard, but I would never play a character that uses Destruction for their primary damage on anything higher than Adept. (The Zanimal also conjures and uses his enchanted greatsword.) I sometimes forget to turn it back down for Darnand, and his first completely ineffective dual-cast fireball always lets me know something is very wrong!

Sky Chillrend has a chance to paralyze for 2 seconds, which the way Marius fights works out to maybe once per dungeon. The version that Marius got (itís leveled) does 15 frost damage. Its base damage is 2 points higher than his Nightingale Blade. At this point heís finding better blades, but Chillrend really does lookÖ er, cool. Lol.
Acadian
Renee, don't feel badly. I thought perhaps I saw a third dragon in the distance as well. But Grits is right - two is enough!

I quite dislike the 'chance' to do 'X' type of enchantments. Buffy's pretty frail and she needs to KNOW what she's gonna get. Lol.

I'm very happy and surprised with Buffy's wardrobe, seeing as she was a real clothes horse in OB. Her full mage robes, leathers, furs, scaled are all in her bag of holding gathering dust. She sleeps in an unhooded monks robe and 'taverns' in a vanilla blue dress. Her 'Venturewear is three colors of Triss armor and three hoods we just made (brown, green, white). The hoods are taken from the long mage/monk robes and include that scarf/shawl thing that drapes down the back like a mini cape. They beat the socks off the hood + cape we were using and provide just the right touch to Triss for inclement weather. smile.gif
haute ecole rider
Alise loves those mantles! She uses one all the time with her Resist Frost enchanted wolfskin cloak she picked up off of an unlucky bandit. It's great for the northern climes.

She's experimenting with several types of light armor ATM and right now is wearing Elven Rogue Armor by NanaBeats. It's no longer up on the Nexus forums, so I'm not sure what happened. But I like it much better than the standard Elven armor, which seems like too much metal for my character. Alise also likes that it's a dark color, rather than the golden color which always seemed too garish for her.

What Alise likes doing more is smithing up various heavy armors for her housecarls. Rayya has a set of Imperial Legion armors from this mod. Argis and Lydia are presently sporting heavy armors from here I have to say that the Akaviri Samurai armor Lydia is using looks awesome on her.
Grits
Oh, now I see the fluff/shadow that looks like a distant dragon! Oops. Sorry about that, folks! Iím just glad my snow fluffs donít look like dandelion seeds anymore. laugh.gif

Iím with you and Buffy, Acadian. I prefer the certainty of paralysis poison if the target really must drop. Marius is my problem child, though. Lol. What a great idea to make hooded shoulder-wraps for Buffy. A hood plus cloak does tend to overwhelm a petite figure. I get such a smile imagining Buffy relaxing fireside in her blue dress. happy.gif

haute, what armor does Alise have Argis wearing? The Argis fan club (me) wants to know. biggrin.gif

Marius has finally styled his pal Arissa the Wandering Rogue to his liking. We have tried just about everything on that woman. Marius is not interested in her that way (his words), but he does have to look at her a lot and he has standards. Anyway sheís wearing the ďThiefísĒ version of Triss armor Ė the dark gray but not jet black variety. What a wonderfully versatile outfit!
haute ecole rider
ATM Argis is wearing the Nordic Carved Armor - it looks simply awesome, especially with the Ornate Bearclaw Cloak from Winter Is Coming. I do try to give my companions serious armor, whether light or heavy. Earlier, he was trying out the Witchplate Armor from the Immersive Armor mod, it looked pretty cool on him, but I thought it looked better on Lydia.

Acadian
Oh, I think the Nordic Carved Armor looks great on a big warrior fellow (like Argis). And, of course, I simply love the Triss outfit on rogues/mages. happy.gif

Grits, I just spent quite a bit of time reviewing that Arissa mod. Wow, it sounds fabulous! I'm really impressed with both Anduniel and Inigo (have both in Buffy's game). I was so impressed to see that Arrissa plays nicely with Convenient Horses and AFT - as I love both those support mods.

I've always thought elven looks like something out of an alien movie from the 1960s. I appreciate it because it is pretty radical, but none of mine have ever chosen to wear a full elven suit.

If I ever continue Master Baytor's game (he's an Altmer) I think he'd be the first to wear elven, just because he would look so ridiculous / over-the-top in golden gear.

Yay for Nordic Carved, I love that armor on the big guys and gals. Stenvar wears it in Jensaís game, and Iíve always admired it on Frea.

Acadian, I have enjoyed Arissa quit a bit. A wonderful feature for Marius is that they can temporarily split up when they enter cities through a very natural dialog option. Itís a small thing but it really brings her to life. Heís actually run into her in other peopleís houses while heís been in there up to no good. hehe.gif

I think the golden Elven armor is beautiful but requires some effort to make it work with a character. I have a holy fire warrior idea that I think will go for the look. She is supposed to look shiny and fabulous and full of herself with fancy feathers and such, because she is all that. tongue.gif Also itís hard for me to overcome the Elven armorís association with the Thalmor patrols. My Altmer characters have chosen other armor to disassociate themselves from the Thalmor.

Iíve found the glass set to be equally challenging but just as fun once a character embraces the outlandish look. DovahKen dressed Erik the Slayer up in a full glass set. He looked ridiculous at first but then I got used to it and really enjoyed the way light looks in the metal and glass part of the armor. DovahKen was short so he got to see a lot of Erikís shoulders. Iím sure whatever DovahKen was wearing at the time looked equally outrageous.
