The Spell Knight Armour in Skyrim offers the perfect solution for Dragonborn spellcasters seeking a balance between magic and might. This unique armor set, previously exclusive to the Creation Club, is now obtainable through the “Crypt of the Heart” quest in the Anniversary Edition of Skyrim.

This distinctive armor set is known for its impressive defensive capabilities and subtle magical enhancements. It equips you to dominate close-quarters combat and spellcasting. Three variants of this armor are available, each with distinct qualities.

This guide will equip you with the knowledge to complete this quest and claim all three variants of the Spell Knight Armor in Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Start Crypt Of The Heart

To get all three variants of Spell Knight Armor by completing the Crypt of the Heart quest. This requires you to travel to Markath and read the book in Silver-Blood Inn to start the quest.

Slightly outside the city, look for the knight’s ghost in the south of Markarth to Dushnikh Yal. Walk toward the bridge, and a ghost will eventually spawn after you kill all the enemies and pick the red flower in the middle.

Follow The Ghost

Follow the ghost to its burial site. Defeat the bandits that come in the way, and you will first acquire Iron Spell Knight Armor and Steel Spell Knight Armor.

You will find Forsworn Shaman’s note while looting the bandit’s bodies; this note defines your next objective: search the Karthspire for the Stolen Heart.

Go To Soljund’s Sinkhole

Fast travel to the Soljund’s Sinkhole and remove a couple of bandits. After taking them out, you will find the Corrupted Human Heart inside a bowl. Take the heart back to the Knight’s Tomb.

Select the Return the Heart to the Knight’s Tomb option. This will unlock an optional objective called the “Purify Knight Heart at the Altar.”

Place The Heart Or Defeat The Knight

To complete this objective, you must place the corrupted heart on the altar.

You can either purify the heart to complete the objective or defeat the Corrupted Knight to end the quest and earn the Ebony Spell Knight Armor.

Spell Knight armor spell quest is a little bugged, and some players are facing an error in which they cannot interact with this purify heart option. To fix this, you have to install a patch from Nexusmods. Sometimes, turning off the Survival mode and waiting for a few minutes can also fix this error.
