Cursed Daedric Armor is a unique set of Daedric Armor. The set is superior to standard Daedric Armor in terms of both protection and weight, is considered Light Armor, and is enchanted, but does not have a helmet and a shield. The Cursed Face of Inspiration and Cursed Face of Terror complement the set. As with its default counterpart, Cursed Daedric Armor glows in the dark. This does not affect detection.

Background

Forging Daedric Armor under an eclipse renders the set cursed, significantly changing its properties and enchanting it with powerful but harmful effects, which can handicap the wearer. The armor is lighter and more durable, but it said that the voices and screams of the Daedra are heard louder when wearing the set, unlike the default Daedric Armor. Alternatively, those practicing Daedric Magic can obtain a cursed set via an incantation. A Daedra Heart is required, as with the forging.

So far, there are very few recorded cases of cursing the armor throughout history, and the secret method remains a tale even among the Daedric cults.

Smithing

Cursed Daedric Armor can be upgraded using Ebony Ingots. The smith, however, must be knowledgeable about improving enchanted items.

Trivia

  • The armor's design is similar to that of Daedric Armor in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The depictions on the pauldrons are what seems to be an eclipse symbol, a possible reference to the way the set is forged.
  • Velar Veleth is the only known character who created Cursed Daedric Armor. Interestingly enough, he used only a single Daedra Heart for the whole set.
  • The set is said to become even more valuable if purified with a solution of Void Salts.
