The Kothringi may be gone, but their peerless craftsmanship lives on in this hunter's garment.

Harpooner's Wading Kilt are Mythic medium leg guards that comes with the Divines trait. It can be obtained through the Antiquities system. It was released as part of the Blackwood Chapter.

ON-icon-fragment-Kothringi-Cut Leather.png Kothringi-Cut Leather World Bosses Blackwood A roll of perfectly preserved leather. Surprisingly supple for its age. Judging by the texture, I'd say it came from something large and reptilian. A wamasu or haj mota perhaps? — Reginus Buca Right you are, Reginus. Though I find the styling more interesting than the source. Note the scalloped edges and parchment-thin cuts. No Argonian leatherworker touched this. This [sic] Kothringi craftsmanship! Dating back to the early 2E 200's at least! — Verita Numida The Kothringi's distaste for clothing is well-known, but someone definitely wore this. Perhaps as a robe or kilt? It carries arcane power, for sure. Something primal--helping the wearer find success on a hunt, I'll bet. — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-fragment-Bog-Blue Jasper Fetish.png Bog-Blue Jasper Fetish Tree-Minder Na-Kesh in Ruins of Mazzatun Shadowfen Precious stones are hard to come by in Black Marsh, but some still find their way into the region. Argonians use polished blue jaspers like this in their jewelry. But this one is faceted. Unusual. — Verita Numida According to my research, the Kothringi preferred faceted stones because they scattered the light like fish scales. Combined with these prey-feathers, this stone would be a powerful fetish for hunters and harpooners. — Reginus Buca A powerful fetish indeed! According to Kothringi folklore, bog-blue jaspers come from the gizzards of "geels-ha butcher eels"--massive river predators that swallow haj mota whole! This stone holds tremendous cultural--and maybe magical--power. — Amalien
ON-icon-fragment-Tide-Glass Beads.png Tide-Glass Beads Any Alchemy harvesting node, including Pure Water and Water Skins Shadowfen You find a lot of these glass beads in Kothringi burial cairns. Typically on a string or in a small pouch. They didn't use them as currency, but often wore them on their wrists or ankles. One of the few items of clothing they favored. — Ugron gro-Thumog The Kothringi didn't consider these beads clothing. They were wearable instruments! Kothringi measured the worth of most things by their sound. My Argonian friend, Ree-Tei, told me the only reason they wanted gold was because of the clink it made! — Amalien Let's not overstate, Amalien. The Kothringi were well aware of gold's value outside Black Marsh. But, it is true that musicality played an oversized role in their cultural expression. Judging by the size, they probably wore these around the waist. — Verita Numida
ON-icon-fragment-Wolf-Tail Sash.png Wolf-Tail Sash Foul Fishing holes Murkmire A real Lilmothiit waist sash! It's not an actual Lilmothiit tail. At least, I don't think it is. Do Lilmothiit even have tails? Question for another time. This one is made from a strip of wolf fur, I think. I've never seen a wolf in Black Marsh, though. — Amalien There was a species of long-legged swamp wolves that went extinct in the 2E 10s. Lost huge numbers during the Great Burn and never recovered. You see a few of their features in the Blackwood dire wolf, though. Must have crossbred a bit. — Ugron gro-Thumog Whatever its origin, this tail is heavily enchanted. Kothringi magic is so unusual that I almost missed it. It heightens the wearer's senses, I think. Or their reflexes. Perhaps both? At any rate, it's only one part of a larger garment. Still, remarkable! — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-fragment-Silverweave Cord.png Silverweave Cord Daggerfall Covenant mobs Bal Foyen Here's a relic I wouldn't mind taking for my personal collection. You can't buy cord this strong in any market I've visited. Looks like something nautical. Boat rigging, or the lead on a harpoon. Beautiful. Just beautiful. —Ugron gro-Thumog The weave of the rope is very tight, but that's not the only source of its strength. I see metallic strands woven into the cord. Kothringi smiths might have been capable of a feat like that, though I've never seen it executed this seamlessly. —Reginus Buca I believe Reginus has the right of it. Wealthy Kothringi sailors probably used this in their boats or even wore it around the waist. The coloration here indicates to me that something was strung on it. Glass beads or talismans. Both functional and lovely. —Verita Numida
