Black Smoke coming out of my character?

Its basically following my character around and I can see it when I strike at enemies, quite annoying. Any fix?

Is it all ebony mails that do this or just the daedric one? I like it because it has a poison effect on enimies but if can be annoying while crouching or playing third person

Not to sound like a dumb-butt but what is "ebony mail"? I have some Ebony armor and some daedric too and I'd like to see this smoke trail gimmick.

You get it for completing the cult quest for Boethiah (spelling?).

It's quite cool but the black smoke became rather annoying, kept getting in the way

It's from a daedric quest. Shrine of Boalith.

There is only one Ebony Mail, it is a daedric artifact from a quest. I think your thinking of Ebony Armour which does not have the poison enchant.

Thank you; I just encountered this about a half an hour ago (the black smoke) and was about to toss my controller...I love this game but the glitches and freeze-ups are pushing me over the edge!

When wearing the Ebony Mail, black smoke starts to emit when enemies are close or you take damage, such as taking an arrow to the knee.

I thought the black smoke was awesome...
Also, not to sound rude but it can be easily assumed that your armor is emitting the smoke.

The smoke also surrounds you when you go into sneak mode. The armour reduces the amount of noise your movements make, which makes it very effective when sneaking, even though it's heavy armour.

There is a slightly annoying downside to it, for some reason, the poison will sometimes affect neutral NPCs while you're in combat. During a fight with some allies, I found a couple of them turning on me when I hadn't even hit them, it was the armour draining their health.

Oh, and it seems to like poisoning goats for no reason. Then again, it IS Daedric...
