Glass armor

Glass weapons and armor are an ornate design: light and flexible, although very difficult to make and expensive. Glass armor is a lightweight armor created using rare metals studded with volcanic glass. The result is stronger than steel due to its ability to absorb and distribute shocks very well. Glass armor not only surpasses other light armor in strength, but is also superior to most medium armor (with the exception of a few Artifacts and some new medium armor added by the two expansions). The armor is favored by the Buoyant Armigers, and one of the only places it can be found for sale is at their stronghold in Ghostgate.

Similarly, glass weapons are created using rare metals and volcanic glass to produce blades of virtually unparalleled sharpness and light weight. Glass weapons wear quickly however and require frequent repair.

Armor LocationsEdit

Glass Armor is rather rare, and since it's mostly worn by members of the Buoyant Armigers, it may be difficult to acquire a full set without killing non-hostile NPCs for it. If you've got a lot of money to burn, Dronos Llervu in Ghostgate's Tower of Dusk Lower Level may sell you a complete set. Or if you're sneaky enough, you can steal most of it from him. Notably, Dronos' shop is the only place you will find the Bracers in Vvardenfell. They don't even show up in random loot, so you'll have to either buy them or steal them from him. Golena SadriTR, however, also has the bracers, but you will have to complete a certain quest to get them. Additionally, there are three crates to be found, each containing up to 3 random Glass Armor pieces, which can be anything but the Bracers. They can be found at Dronos' shop in Ghostgate, in the Redoran Vaults in Vivec, and in the lower level of an Unmarked Shipwreck off the northwestern-most tip of Vvardenfell. You might want to save before opening these crates, in order to reload if you don't get the pieces you need. If you have Tribunal installed, Bols Indalen will craft any piece of glass armor for you, including the bracers, provided you bring him enough Raw Glass.
