Ebony Armor location In Skyrim

The main piece of this Armor will give you 50 extra health points. The player will have an amazing armor rating of 128 with the full armor gear and a shield. This justifies the effort required to obtain Skyrim’s heavy armor.

First of all, players need to have some iron ingots and some leather strips. Go to the white run in the war maiden and he is going to sell these items to you. Don’t worry if you fail to buy these items from him just fast forward your game to 48 hours and all the items will be restocked.

You either need money or a lot of stuff like gold to buy the items. Once, you have leather strips and iron ingots next step is to go to the blacksmith forge where we are going to level up our smithing.

Players need level 80 smithing to get the ebony armor. At this forge, make iron daggers they will help to increase your smithing level very quickly.

After this, we need to look for ebony ingots which are our main ingredient. The player needs to travel to Windehlm and stop in the southeast of this region.

A lady will try to stop you but just ignore you and enter the region. There will be a room full of ebony ingots but from there you have to steal so better not to. The other way is to go straight on the bridge.

As you will go up you will find many carriages with ebony ores and then our main supply is in the cave. There you will need a pickaxe to far ebony ore.

Once you have ebony ore go back to Whiterun. A smelting machine will convert ebony ore to ebony ingots. Then simply go to Blacksmith forge and there you go. Congratulations you have your complete set of Ebony Armor now.

The Skyrim Creation Club has now added Ebony Plate Armor in the game which is a good alternative to this armor. Only once a player has finished Heart of Crimson can they create Ebony Plate Armor.

Even though this armor has higher ratings across the board, shield variations are the only thing missing. There isn’t a shield version for this gear.
