The zeal of Dwemer researchers was legendary. Runes along the heel read: "Proof against magma, frost, ichor, poison, aetheric debris, necromancy, high pressure, claudication, temporal reallocation, and Daedric corruption.

Esoteric Environment Greaves is a Mythic heavy leg armor that comes with the Sturdy trait. It can be obtained through the Antiquities system. It was released as part of the Necrom Chapter.


1 item: While you are above 50% Stamina, reduce your direct damage taken by 50% and lose 968 Stamina whenever you take direct damage, up to once every 0.3 seconds.


  • Five fragments are required to create the item, all of which require a master-quality Lead in order to scry, and are classed as master difficulty to excavate.
  • You are required to be at least level 7 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight IV passive in order to scry Master difficulty leads.
  • Fragment Leads are largely found in the same zone as where the fragment is excavated, save for a few cases where it may be found in different zone.

ON-icon-armor-Hickory Shield-Dwemer.png Biome-Proof Plating Nchuleft delve boss Telvanni Peninsula I understand why this came straight to my desk, clearly Dwemer in origin. Fairly standard construction, but the surface feels texturally quite different. I suggest one of my more experimental colleagues test its properties. — Amalien Nothing I've thrown at this will dent it. Fire, ice, poison, acid, crushing, smashing, blades ... this surface has been made safe against every test I had. I understand strong armor, but why? — Ugron gro-Thumog Dwemer scholars explored the length and breadth of Nirn, and well beyond. Perhaps this plating was proof against the extremes they might encounter in seeking the truths of Aetherius. Could have used this during a few rough expeditions myself. — Reginus Buca
ON-icon-armor-Girdle-Dwemer.png Nonreactive Cincture Graven Deep side bosses Telvanni Peninsula A belt of unusual properties. An accident in one of the storage rooms destroyed a number of relics by fire. This simple loop was covered with ash but untouched otherwise. I would have put this in the ephemera file otherwise, fascinating. — Reginus Buca That would have been a missed opportunity. This was woven with a complex set of fibers that seemed to resist everything my students came up with to test its properties. It made for an entertaining lecture, at least. — Ugron gro-Thumog Dwemer, with post-diaspora techniques and an advanced fiberweave I've seen used in a scant few artifacts. The artisan's name has been lost to time but I recognize their split anvil maker's mark from other works of exceptional quality. — Amalien
ON-icon-armor-Greaves-Dwemer.png Thras-Crafted Breeches Coral Aerie secret boss Telvanni Peninsula Exhilarating. This appears to be a set of breeches crafted with materials and techniques common to the Sload of Thras. But symbology, treatment, and context all scream Dwemer. I've never seen such clear evidence of collaboration between these cultures. — Amalien I think collaboration might be a strong word. I've found some supporting Thrassian documentation to indicate contractual workings for mages of great power in other cultures. Still, a unique find. — Gabrielle Benele More than we've ever been able to prove before. The Dwemer reaching out to other regions for support in their more advanced workings is a fascinating concept. Was this a common practice, or was this more like a favor repaid to a specific artisan? — Amalien
ON-icon-furnishing-Dwarven Spider Legs, Inoperative.png Tonal Pivot Joints Forgotten Wastes group event boss Telvanni Peninsula These pivot points remind me strongly of those we've seen on constructs from across traditional Dwemer regions. But they're sized for a flesh and blood wearer, perhaps part of some armor? A standout relic of their culture. — Reginus Buca While we know the Dwemer made a variety of constructs to integrate with mortal frames, it's extremely rare to find any left behind after their departure. These joints most likely helped the wearer bear up under heavy loads, or move across uneven terrain. — Amalien They're also extremely well insulated from adverse conditions, as we've seen with several other pieces recently. Just imagine what a person wearing these greaves could endure. — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-armor-Shoulders-Spawn of Mephala 2.png Harvester-Scale Plating Zygiite in Gorne Telvanni Peninsula I've never seen this before. Daedric scales culled and cured by what looks like Nirn techniques? What culture would cultivate a Daedra for their skin, and use them in a set of greaves? — Reginus Buca I believe this is originally from a Harvester, you can see where the scales sat upon the serpent body. But I share your confusion, perhaps one of the lost cultures? Ayleid? — Ugron gro-Thumog You mock me when I contextualize everything through Dwemer culture but ... this was done by the Deep Elves. I've found minimal evidence for Dwemer cultivation of Daedra populations, however, so this represents an extreme outlier in Dwemeric practices. — Amalien
