Blackguard's Armor

The Blackguard's Armor is the chest piece of a set of armor that also includes boots, gloves and a hood. It can be found along with the rest of the set in the basement of Glover Mallory's house, however Mallory will only give you the key to his basement after you complete Paid in Full. The armor is also only available to Thieves Guild members, as you must complete Meet the Family in order to receive Paid in Full. In appearance, it is identical to the unobtainable Thieves Guild Variant Armor, though this armor provides four more points of protection. Its enchantment functionally serves as an upgrade to the base Thieves Guild Armor, increasing your carry weight by 50 points, a bonus equal to that of Guild Master's Armor (but with 5 points less of protection) without having to complete the entire Thieves Guild questline to obtain it. It can be tempered with a piece of leather.

Related QuestsEdit


  • All the Blackguard's Armor items will respawn when Glover Mallory's basement resets, allowing multiple copies of the set to be obtained
  • You can get the armor without joining the Thieves Guild by taking a wooden plate, holding it in front of you, and running at door to glitch through. You'll need another plate to get out of the room if you wish to attempt this. It may take a few tries to work.
