|Daedric Artifact: Gray Cowl of Nocturnal (FExxxD62)
|Added by||The Gray Cowl Returns!|
While equipped, the living will be colored depending on their intent, with non-hostiles being shaded blue and hostiles emitting a red aura. You will be attacked by guards while wearing the cowl, whereas followers are free to wear it without facing their wrath.
- The Gray Cowl of Nocturnal has previously appeared in Oblivion. For more information, see the lore article.
- Unlike its previous appearance in Oblivion, the blue inscription down the middle reads "Shadow hide you" without omitting the letter Yahkem (Y), as is common in the Daedric Alphabet.
- Similarly, it is also now considered a piece of Light Armor, with an armor rating equivalent to an elven helmet, though it cannot be tempered.
- This is the only item in the game with a Detect Life enchantment, making it especially useful since it's a constant effect as opposed to a concentration spell. Detect Life was generally available as an enchantment in Oblivion, wherein this item originated.
