Nightingale Armor is part of a set of light armor given to you for joining the Nightingales. Its enchantment grants a Fortify Stamina and Resist Frost effect. Tempering the Nightingale Armor requires void salts and the Arcane Blacksmith perk. When wearing the armor, guards may comment "That armor... it's like nothing I've ever seen. Like forged midnight..."

The full set of Nightingale equipment also includes boots, gloves, and a hood.

Related QuestsEdit


  • This Light Armor set is found during the Thieves Guild questline, as reward for the quest Trinity Restored. Tempering the pieces requires one sample of Void Salts each and the Arcane Blacksmith perk. Tempering is not augmented by any smithing perk.
  • Wearing a full set of Nightingale Armor gives you a 25 point armor bonus from the Nightingale Armor Full Set ability.
  • The level that the armor registers is the level you are at the start of the mission Trinity Restored, not the moment the armor is received.


  • Even with the proper perks and items required, sometimes the armor won't let you temper it at all.
  • If you have Fine-Cut Void Salts in your inventory, it may cause all of your regular Void Salts to be unusable to temper the Nightingale Armor. After you dispose of the Fine-Cut Void Salts, it is again possible to temper the armor.
