Skyrim Legendary Items Locations Guide – Armor and Weapons


Most of the leveled up (legendary) items are obtained through quest rewards. The item’s level is dependent on the player’s level and the time on which the reward is given. Some items don’t improve if you’re a higher-level character or some items will have better physical, magical or enchanting abilities.
