"The expert in battle would first make himself invincible,
then wait for his enemy to expose his vulnerability."



By nature there is both an organic grace and a bestial crudeness to any armor forged from the skeletal remains of dragons. While only a highly skilled smith can work with such material at all, a true master can incorporate knowledge of other metals to both bolster the bones and replace fragile leather with mails that are a far more fitting match in strength. Their talents and efforts produce an armor that not only exhibits expert craftsmanship, but rivals the works of the daedra in sheer protective durability.



Dragonbone Ebonsteel heavy armor is a stand-alone set combining the raw strength of dragonbone with the more malleable resilience of ebony. While for all gameplay purposes it is still considered dragonplate, forging it requires skill in both dragon and ebony smithing. The armor rating of all pieces is nearly as great (just one tick shy) of their Daedric counterparts.

  • The armor can be made at any forge.
  • While it requires both Dragon and Ebony smithing perks to make, the armor itself is found under the Dragon smithing category.
  • Two styles each of chestpieces, gauntlets, and boots are included. Their construction materials and stats are identical. The choice is offered purely for aesthetic reasons.
  • Four distinct styles of helm are available, in either veiled or open-faced versions (for a grand total of eight). Here too materials and stats are identical, and which one wears is a matter of individual taste.
  • A chainmail hood can also be forged. As it is not rigid and does not actually utilize dragonbone, it is markedly less protective than the full helms. However, it does allow one to simultaneously equip circlets of any type.
  • A heavy shield (replete with modified geometry) is included as part of the full set.
  • All pieces are upgradeable with additional ebony ingots.
  • All pieces are fully race, gender, and body-slider compliant.





I've done my best to test and tweak as much as possible, but in the end I'm a Q.A. department of one. Should others discover additional problems, I'll do what I can to address them as I learn of them. Some general notes:


Compatability and Conflicts:
  • As all pieces are standalone and based on Bethesda's geometry, there should be no conflicts with vanilla Skyrim or other mods.
  • I'd like to especially recommend Winter is Coming - Cloaks, which I believe greatly accentuates the look of this (and all other) armor.
  • Another mod I enjoy using with Dragonbone Ebonsteel armor is the wonderful Bandolier - Bags and Pouches.

In the event that one should wish to include this armor in a more expansive mod, I'll likely be amenable. But please do ask permission first.
