Thieves Guild Armor

Thieves Guild Armor serves as the chest piece for the set of armor used by Thieves Guild members. Alongside this armor, this set of equipment also includes boots, gloves, and a hood. The armor has been enchanted to fortify carry weight by twenty points, allowing for more pilfering of valuables. Tempering Thieves Guild Armor requires a piece of leather and the Arcane Blacksmith perk.

The armor, alongside the rest of the set, is originally given to you by the fence Tonilia upon successfully taking care of business around Riften. The armor is not just a perk of membership in the organization; wearing the armor will also make it clear to guards that you are a guild thief, which they will comment on by saying, "I know Thieves Guild armor when I see it. You're not fooling anyone." or, "Try to hide it all you want. I know you're in the Thieves Guild... and so do the other guards."

After completion of Scoundrel's Folly, you will be told to see Tonilia once again to have her provide you with an improved version of one of the pieces of this set. The armor piece's upgraded version not only is lighter and provide more protection, but is worth more gold. Furthermore, its enhanced enchantment provides an additional fifteen points of carry weight over the basic version, for a total of 35 extra units of weight through the enchantment.
