Shrouded Cowl

Ancient Shrouded Cowl is the head piece for a set of armor found on a dead assassin in Hag's End. Alongside this piece, this set of armor also includes an armor piece, a pair of boots, and gloves. It shares its appearance with regular Shrouded Cowl. However, the Ancient Shrouded Cowl has a superior armor rating, lower weight, and higher gold value than the normal version of this armor. This armor's enchantment fortifies archery by 35 points, fifteen points more than the common version. Tempering the Ancient Shrouded Cowl requires a piece of leather and the Arcane Blacksmith perk.

Completing Breaching Security by killing Gaius Maro in a hold capital will result in Gabriella giving you Olava's Token. This token can be given to the eponymous Olava the Feeble, who will read your future. After making some various predictions, she will say: "...Wait! There's something else... A potential for adventure, and wealth. It is a ruin, ripe for the plunder. Deepwood Redoubt. Far to the northwest... Through there is... Hag's End. The last resting place of an assassin of old. A Dark Brother, who bequeaths his ancient earthly possessions... to you." This prediction will add a handle behind the throne in Hag's End, which will open up a wall to the final resting place of the assassin in question, and this equipment set.
