New armor question

none of the new armour is as good as daedric. the best of the new armour is stalhrim armour, which is comparable to ebony.

Some of the deathbrand isn't too bad, it's a light version of stahlrim but for each extra piece you wear of the set every piece gets stronger. It's worth a look if you're looking for something light and if the skills and perks are maxed it isn't far short of daedric.

ive just had a look on my game now in the blacksmith and ive found some results, contrary to my original post.

daedric is the most powerful armor with a base rating of 194,
then stalhrim and dragonbone are equal with a base rating of 182
then ebony is equal to nordic carved armor, both having 171 base rating.

so it looks like i was wrong about stalhrim then, its as good as dragonbone, but not as good as daedric. of course these are the base stats on my game and i dont know if ive got any perks/enchantments affecting these results, but i dont think i have.

Daedric is THE best, no doubt.

But it's overrated, as is Heavy Armor all together.

I still wear my Ancient Shrouded Dark Brotherhood gear and it has an overall rating of 980 which is good enough for me

The Stalhrim gear was too blue for me, but Carved Ancient Nordic did look pretty badass.

No, why mess with daedric, it looks cool, mind you I am a fan of ebony mail and have a chest full of them, well not really I have sold About 20 of them already via the duplicate glitch. Fully upgraded they are about 24,000 gold iirc. Default value is 5,000. My follower Mjoll the lioness wears one with a full set of ebony.

On another game I have full set of legendary daedric maxed out for follower mjoll the lioness as well, figured she deserved it as I took her favorite sword, even though I don't even use it. Same with Aela the huntress I took her sheild and gave her decked out daedric gear.

I'm quite enjoying my current run-through with dragon scale armour, the extra stamina to sprint with is nice and it didn't take a load of perks as it did for the heavy armour.

I also think that the Nordic equipment looks badass. I wear my Nightingale armor because I think it looks really sick.

Hmm, It would have to adhere to Elder Scrolls lore; If it happens, it'll probably be made by Aedra (like the nine divines) they kinda make things.
