Works on PS3 to get the ancient nord armor off of him, I've done it twice. You just need to kill him before he gets to the bandits. This isn't very hard just using basic flames or a bow, he's a bit fast for a 2 handed user like me.

Worked the first time after half an hour trying to figure this issue out, thanks!

I killed him but he won't drop anything. He just disappears :(

Why did you add that to the page if you hadn't tested it and made sure it was a way to "summon" the ghost?

Please only add information you know to be true.

The Ghost (The one in Ancient Nord armor), can also spawn at levels lower than the listed level.

(Mentioning this, just in case people wanted to know if the armor around level 1)

What if you are on switch?

Ghost [ edit ]

Just visited here and there was a ghost standing outside. He began running on my approach but unfortunately I didn't follow. Need to look into why this ghost is there, obviously there is more to this location than stated on this page.

(edit) loaded a previous save, followed the ghost and he lead me to 2 bandit graverobbers. In the grave was a staff, amulet and shield (levelled items)

Trigger? [ edit ]

I visited here at night, waited for a whole evening, and no ghost. Is there a prerequisite or something I have to do to trigger the ghost? — Unsigned comment by ( talk ) at 04:53 on 21 January 2012

No matter what, still no ghost. [ edit ]

I tried waiting outside, I tried waiting in an inn in Mortal, I tried waiting a few feet from it, I tried sleeping in one of the Stormcloak tents and still no ghost. I even tried shouting, no cigar. I want the Ancient Nord Armor without having to go through the Siege of the Dragon Cult and the Companion questline. — Unsigned comment by ( talk ) at 14:40 on 5 October 2013

Graverobbers [ edit ]

I didn't find the ghost but climbing the hill on opposite side of river I found the grave and robbers. It's an arched formation halfway between Hjaalmarch and Mzinchaleft. — Unsigned comment by ( talk ) at 18:58 on 5 November 2018 (UTC)

How to Get Ancient Nord Armor in Skyrim

Read this guide to learn about all the different locations where you can find pieces of the Ancient Nord armor in Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

How to Get Ancient Nord Armor in Skyrim

In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can benefit from the heavy armor because of their heavy protection from physical attacks. You can also easily craft them and upgrade them in a workbench.

Ancient Nordic Armor is also one of the heavy armor that can be found during the Siege on the Dragon Cult quest. Read this guide to learn about every location of Ancient Nordic Armor in Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Ancient Nord Armor location in Skyrim

The first location where you can find the Ancient Nord Armor 00018388 is in the Forelhost , right behind Riften. At this location, you must start the Siege on the Dragon Cult quest that will unlock the locked castle doors at Forelhost.

Once you are inside the castle, you will find a bunch of ghost-like warriors named Dragon Cultist. Once killed, Dragon Cultist will drop a full set of Ancient Nordic Armor. The castle is filled with Dragon Cultists. Therefore, you can collect several Ancient Nordic Armor from them.

Kjenstag Ruins is the next place where you can find Ancient Nordic Armor. The armor will only be found in a certain time frame which is between 8 pm and 4 am at the night. If you arrived at any other time, you must wait outside the castle until the right time.

Once the time is right, you must go inside the caste to find a ghost. You must wait for the ghost to make his escape before you kill him.

For the next location, you must travel to Jorrvaskr . Aela the Huntress wears the full set of Ancient Nordic Armor. It can be obtained by either killing her or by shopping at her shop after marrying.

The last location to find the Ancient Nordic Armor is in the Southfringe Sanctum . Here, you can find a warrior named Bashnag that drops Ancient Nordic Armor once defeated. He is a little hard to defeat because of his frost and shock attacks.

Ancient Nord Armor visual glitch

Ancient Nord Armor has a special visual graphical glitch that occurs if the player wears it and draws the weapon. When the camera settings are in the first person, there are weird graphical lines that appear horizontally and diagonally on the screen.

The glitch only appears only in the first-person view. The armor from the third-person view looks just fine. The glitch happens with weapons drawn and it does not matter if the player has worn the gauntlet or not.

Ahzidral Armor

Ahzidral Armor is the variant of the Ancient Nord Armor. You can find it several times when you are doing the quest Unearthed. For this quest, you must have to go to the Kolbjorn Barrow which is an ancient tomb.


There are 4 pieces of relics of Ahzidral that includes Armor, Boots, Gauntlets, and a Helm. If you wear all four of the prices of the Ahzidral, you will be granted Ahzidral Genius enchantment.

The enchantment will not work if you wear more or less than four relics of Ahzidral Armor. You can also avail the benefits of the enhancement if you have only the 3 relics of Ahzidral Armor.

Just use the Dragon Priest Mask as one of the fourth relics of Ahzidral Amor. This armor gives us fortifying enchantment which means you can make strong enchanting potions with this.

Ahzidral Armor Stats

Smithing requirements.

In Skyrim, you can craft the Ancient Nordic Armor in Skyforge. You can only access the forge once the Companion questline has been finished. Likewise, you will need Deadric Smithing Perk.

Crafting the Ancient Nord Armor will require the following material below, once you have completed all the smithing requirements:

  • Leather Strips
  • Steel Ingot

The next step after crafting is upgrading it. You can upgrade the level of the Ancient Nordic Armor once crafted with the help of Iron Ingot. This can be done at a workbench.

Ancient Nord Armor Mods

Skyrim offers a lot of mods to the weapons and armor that the players can add to change different aspects. Some mods are just visual, and some have performance-enhancing effects. Below are some of the mods of the Ancient Nordic Armor:

Ancient Nord Armo(u)ry EXTREME SE

This mod allows the players to divide the Ancient Nord Armor into the light and the heavy variants. The divided light and heavy variants are the same for the male and the female variants.

You can also be able to craft the iron equivalent version of the Ancient Nord Armor early in the levels. After completing the quest with these modded variants, you will be granted rewards that are equivalent to smithing perks.

You can then use the rewards to upgrade the Ancient Nord Armor without the Advance Armor perk. The light version, as well as the heavy version, have the same weight.

Ancient Nord Armor Replacer (Tsun Mashup)

This mod combines the two different armors into one mashup. It is combining the Ancient Nord Armor and Tsun’s Armor. The reason to combine both armors is to have the qualities of both light and heavy armors in one piece.

For now, this mod is only available for the male variant of the armor.

Light Ancient Nord Armor

The Ancient Nord Armor is heavy. But some players say that the stats of the Ancient Nord Armor indicates that it is light armor. Therefore, this mod allows you to have the light-modded version of the Ancient Nord Armor.

You can use this modded variant alongside the Ancient Nord Armor in the game. To craft this modded variant, you will need Advanced Armor Smithing Perk. The Stats of the modded version are as follows:

Skyrim: How To Get The Ancient Nord Armor

Most might think the Ancient Nord armor is unique to Aela The Huntress, but here is how you can find it for yourself in Skyrim.

There are a number of unique armor sets that inhabit the world of Skyrim . Each armor has its own unique look that will be eye-catching to at least someone out there. Some armor sets though are rarer than others and one of the rarest sets in the game is the Ancient Nord armor set. RELATED: Skyrim: How To Increase Your Carry Weight The Ancient Nord armor set in Skyrim cannot be crafted by normal means and it cannot be looted from draugr, which you would think would be the most common place to look. There are a number of ways to acquire Ancient Nord armor in Skyrim, which can be a bit of an endeavor regardless of which path you take.

The Stats Of The Ancient Nord Armor

Before we look into how to acquire the Ancient Nord armor, it is important to know its base stats. Ancient Nord armor is a heavy armor set that is tailored more towards pure warriors rather than sneaky thieves for instance.

How To Get The Ancient Nord Armor In Skyrim

There are a number of different ways you can get the Ancient Nord armor in Skyrim - as previously stated, some are easier than others so be sure to get the one that you feel will be best for you.

Forge The Armor Set

There is only one place in the game that Ancient Nord Armor can be forged in Skyrim, that being the Skyforge in Whiterun - but only after you complete the Companions' main questline. Once that is done though, you will also need the Daedric Smithing perk that can be acquired once your smithing level is 90. Not only will the perk let you craft Daedric weapons and armor , but also let you craft the Ancient Nord armor set, provided you have the right materials.

Find The Ancient Nord Set In The World

There are a few specific places and people where you can find either the armor's full set or individual pieces of the armor. Note that most of these are not guaranteed to drop pieces of the armor.

  • The full set can be found by looting dragon cultists in Forelhost during the quest Siege on the Dragon Cult. It may also be found on the ghost at Kjenstag Ruins who can be found there between 4 a.m. and 8 p.m.
  • If you choose to marry Aela the Huntress, you can buy all pieces except for the helmet provided you trade her some stronger armor first. These same pieces can also be looted off of ascendant necromancers if you are above level 81.
  • You can find a number of different Ancient Nord helmets and boots in the Forsaken Crypt.
  • Ysgramor's Tomb has a chance of housing an Ancient Nord helmet. The helmet can also be found adjacent to Valdar's throne in Valthume.
  • Labryrinthian's Tribunal level can house two of them. One can be found in the large urn behind Mrokei while a unique enchanted version, Ancient Helmet of the Unburned, is behind the closed gate with the iron-floored fireplace.
  • Bashnag wears a chest piece and can be in Southfringe Sanctum.
  • The boots can also be found atop North Shriekwind Bastion near a brazier that houses soul gems and an Ancient Nord war axe.

How To Get The Ahzidal's Armor Variation

If you're not that impressed with the main Ancient Nord Armor Set, there exists a better variation call Ahzidal's armor that is part of the Dragonborn DLC. The set weighs more but has better stats and armor enchantments. All pieces of the armor set are located in Kolbjorn Barrow in Solstheim.
