An armor set/outfit which successfully riffs off of the Jesters outfit, Cicero’s much more superior clothing is not only stronger but also boasts a higher base value. As long as you can live with yourself killing the main man himself during the dark brotherhood quest line, Cicero’s outfit gives you some nice benefits, including doubling your sneak attack damage with one handed weapons, making you quiet, and dropping prices rather steeply.
An armor set that proves that things are stronger together than they are apart, Skyrim’s Deathbrand armor when worn as a whole ranks much higher than other impressive outfits such as dragonscale and daedric thanks to a full-set bonus. Even when looking at the armor from a purely aesthetic point of view alone, what hero wouldn’t want to boast a crystallized blue samurai helmet as they save the land?
Typically found as a random loot discovery from either a chest or container, the Dragonplate armor is a visually striking heavy armor set that is most commonly ideal for those around level 50. Providing you have the determination to craft it otherwise, Dragonplate is not the highest or most valuable heavy armor in Skyrim, but strikes the right balance when heavy armor perks haven’t been catered for.
Perhaps the easiest way to create the look of Sauron as he appears at the beginning of Fellowship of the Ring, the Daedric armor found in Skyrim is a heavy armor set that is as helpful as it is visually-threatening. It might be extremely heavy, but this is a small price to pay for one of the highest rated sets in the base game. Especially when combined with its corresponding weapon set, you’re sure to remain a force to be reckoned with.
Armor of the Old Gods
A light armor set that can only be acquired after completing the “No one escapes Cidnha mine” quest, the armor of the old gods single-handedly increases your magicka by a much appreciated 30 points whilst also letting you walk around with the horns of a deer on your head, surely all other creatures in Skyrim will cower in fear right?
