Silver Armor location in Skyrim

There are two subtypes of Silver Armor that you can individually find named Silver Weapon and Silver Crossbow. You can buy the Silver Armor for 100 Credits from the Creation Club. The location of full Silver Armor, as well as Silver Weapon and Silver Crossbow, are below:

Full Silver Armor

For the Full Silver Armor, you must travel to the Whiterun region of Skyrim. There is a bannered mare pub directly at the center of the town. Upon entering the building, you must discover a note from M’Sharra’s diary found on top of a table.

After picking the note, you will start the quest “When the Cat’s Away”. To complete this quest, you must travel to the Dragon’s reach dungeon at the Dragon’s reach castle. After entering, you have to find M’Sharra’s confession at the corner of the dungeon.

Once you have read the M’Sharra’s confession, you will be given the M’Sharra’s keys. You will then receive a message on the screen saying to retrieve the armor from the hut. This hut is called Lund’s Hut and is located in the Roricstead region.

You can then fast-travel to the Lund’s Hut and use the M’Sharra’s keys to open the secret safe. This secret safe will contain Full Silver Armor from M’Sharra. There are several Skeevers in and out of the Lund’s Hut that you must fight to get inside.

Silver Sword

There is a region southeast of the Dawnstar called Driftshade Refuge. Inside this region, you will guarantee to find silver-blood warriors. These warriors can drop Silver Weapons when killed.

You can find two soldiers on top of the Driftshade Refuge that will drop Silver Sword. If you then enter the Driftshade Refuge, you find a room at the very north end a Silver Blood Warrior. Killing this Silver Blood Warrior will yield Silver Greatsword.

Silver Crossbow

To find Silver Crossbow, you must travel to the city of Solitude. Navigate to the town’s fletcher close to the blacksmith. At the fletcher shop, you will be able to find the Silver Crossbow that you can buy.
