  • If you use, like and value my work, please consider giving an endorsement. I've worked hard for years to offer you the best of me for free, and the only thing I ask in return is this gesture, which increases my relevance and engagement on Nexus, and motivates me to continue;
  • I do not inspect or have any influence over translations of my mods (including those linked directly on my pages), nor do I have any power over patches or add-ons made to my content. So, before using any unofficial add-ons for my mods, make sure they conform to the latest version of my official release, and never use these if they don't. The same applies to Xbox ports;

"Forged as a symbol of devotion to the prince of destruction Mehrunes Dagon, this light armor set mimics the very armor he wore on his invasion on Nirn during the Oblivion Crisis. The metal plates, decorated with demonic symbols and shapes, are reinforced by a layer of red leather below the metal. Underneath, a full suit of thick black fabric provides extra protection for the wearer. The helm stands out on the set: a runed mask made in the image and likeness of the terrible face of Mehrunes Dagon himself.

The Harbinger Armor is a rare set, not commonly seen outside the Deadlands. Its main users are the fanatical 4-armed Ruinachs, who can commonly be seen wearing pieces of this set, adapted to their bulky bodies. Some Daedra Lords and Counts, more close to the Prince, also use the light armor. The Dremora Mask of Devotion is particularly similar to the Harbinger Helmet, and has a similar meaning, being forged as a symbol of worship to Dagon.

Due to its reduced amount of metal, and the configuration of the armor itself, Harbinger Armor does not shine among the most powerful daedric sets, 
being considered more of a type of ritual armor rather than a battle set."

A former monster hunter, now a dedicated scholar, he is planned to be released as an NPC in late 2022/early 2023, doing the same job in-game as my descriptions do on Nexus.)

Technical details: classified as light armor, its protection is slightly superior to the Elven Gilded Armor, having a weight and value close to the Stalhrim Light Armor. The armor is unisex, and can be worn by any race. This set cannot be found in the world, it needs to be forged under daedric category, requiring the daedric smithing perk.

- 1 new set of light armor, divided into 4 pieces: Harbinger Cuirass,
Harbinger Helmet, Harbinger Gauntlets and Harbinger Boots

Playable races added via mod may not be compatible with this armor, requiring patch.
(OBS- If by chance when installing several of Mihail's mods at the same time you are asked about files overwriting those of other Mihail mods or other authors mods, don't worry because they are just the same files shared between mods. I recommend that on these occasions always give preference to the files contained in my mods, and among mine always give preference to the mod you are installing last.)

The Mihail Armors and Clothes series provides high quality and immersive armor, clothing and other accessories, especially aiming to bring unique and rarely produced content in this area already so explored by many other authors.
