Ebony Mail

The Ebony Mail is a breastplate created before recorded history by the Dark Elven goddess Boethiah. It is she who determines who should possess the Ebony Mail and for how long a time. If judged worthy, its power grants the wearer added resistance of fire, magicka, and grants a magical shield. It is Boethiah alone who determines when a person is ineligible to bear the Ebony Mail any longer, and the goddess can be very capricious.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

The armor is obtained via a high ranking quest for the Tribunal Temple. See the Ebony Mail quest for more information.


  • Despite being medium armor rather than heavy, this artifact ties the Dragonbone cuirass and Lord's Mail as the cuirass with the highest armor rating.
  • This artifact also appears in Arena, Daggerfall, with similar enchantments. In Skyrim, it appears with different effects.
  • As part of the Tribunal expansion, this artifact can be sold to Torasa Aram in the museum for 30,000 gold.
