It certainly helps that you’ll look amazing while jumping around Tamriel’s northernmost region.
Be sure to check out our other Top 10 Skyrim mods covering other mod categories:
Knight Lucard is a very tame armor set, in other words, it’s quite lore-friendly. It’s available in gold and dark steel styles. The gold one is great for roleplaying a dwemer character and the dark one fits great for a more standard fantasy dark knight roleplay.
Certain ruins of Skyrim are littered with statues of Ysgramor and you’ve probably thought to yourself – “Man, that’s one badass helmet. I wish I had that.” Well, instead of it being just a trophy, this mod adds a wearable version so you can roleplay as the man himself in all his enormous glory.
8. TYRAEL ARMOR
If you ever played Diablo, you know who Tyrael is. Well now you can be your favorite angel of justice and wisdom, but only in Skyrim. It adds both light armor and heavy armor variants in light and dark color scheme. Combine it with a flying mod to really drive the roleplay home and descend upon the unknowing peasants in your shiny new robes.
For the standard fantasy that is Elder Scrolls, there’s surprisingly little of standard armor mods with good-guy knightly armor. Lost Paladins fixes that with by adding an awesome looking knights armor in both male and female version. All other evil hunters can hide under a rock while you are wearing this one.
If you ever played Infinity Blade on the iOS, you know Seratic armor. It’s an amazing set that comes in both male and female variants with 3 styles of different colors to boot.
5. HORUS ARMOR
You can see by the image that Hours armor is highly impractical, not lore friendly but we just couldn’t resist featuring it due to how good it looks. There is a variant for both male and female and it still offers enough roleplaying potential as far as we’re concerned. An outsider? A god? Take your pick.
When playing looking for armor mods, I always strive toward daedric equipment cause let’s face it. Who doesn’t want to be a demonic-looking badass with spikes protruding from their every limb? No? Well here is a mod that could very well be the daedric armor for a sequel. Originally made for a follower, this mod makes it available to the player. It features glow in the dark parts and will get you all set for playing a dark knight type of character.
3. MANDU ARMOR
Mandu armor offers an insanely detailed set with two variants for male and female characters. One white and one dark. Besides the ornate details on the chest piece, the two most standout features are the dragon shoulder pads and helmet. It’s an armor for a true dragon knight that fits well in the world of Skyrim.
Goyen armor, from Black Desert Online and Skyrim are like a match made in heaven. The dragon knight theme and the design fit well with a sort of endgame armor that seems like a fitting reward for becoming the savior of the world and a certified dragon lord.
1. SHUDAD ARMOR
Shudad armor has got to be one of our most favorite armor mods for Skyrim. I mean, just look at it. Also ported from Black Desert Online with an insane amount of detail. The spiky protrusions on the back really put a nail in the awesome that is this armor.
