Helmet of the Old Gods

The Helmet of the Old Gods is a special version of a Forsworn Headdress given to you by Kaie for helping the leader of the Forsworn, Madanach, escape Cidhna Mine. Alongside this headdress, this armor set also includes a chest piece, a pair of boots, and a pair of gauntlets. This item shares its appearance with basic Forsworn equipment, although it weighs one point less, and is considerably more valuable. The Helmet of the Old Gods has also been enchanted to fortify magicka by thirty points. Tempering this item requires a piece of leather and the Arcane Blacksmith perk.

  • It is possible to obtain this armor set, as well as the reward from Thonar Silver-Blood. Run through the mine with Madanach until you get this equipment, then stall him while the other Forsworn escape the area. This will give you the opportunity to kill him, thus earning you the animosity of the surviving Forsworn prisoners, which they will express by attacking you once you leave. After defeating them, you can talk to Thonar, who will give you his family ring as a sign of his thanks.


  • When wearing the full set of the Old Gods, the boots and gauntlets may disappear occasionally.
