Thieves Guild Hood

A Thieves Guild Hood serves as the helmet for the set of armor used by Thieves Guild members. Alongside this hood, this set of equipment also includes armor, boots, and gloves. The hood has been enchanted to fortify bartering by ten percent, allowing for better deals when trading with merchants. Tempering a Thieves Guild Hood requires a piece of leather and the Arcane Blacksmith perk.

This hood, alongside the rest of the set, is originally given to you by the fence Tonilia upon successfully taking care of business around Riften. The hood is not just a perk of membership in the organization; wearing the hood with the rest of the equipment will also make it clear to guards that you are a guild thief, which they will comment on by saying, "I know Thieves Guild armor when I see it. You're not fooling anyone." or, "Try to hide it all you want. I know you're in the Thieves Guild... and so do the other guards."

After completion of Scoundrel's Folly, you will be told to see Tonilia once again to have her provide you with an improved version of one of the pieces of this set. The upgrade available for the hood is worth more gold, weighs less, and provides more protection. Furthermore, its enhanced enchantment provides an additional five points towards your bartering abilities over the basic version, for a total of 15 points through the enchantment.
