What is your favourite looking armour? Not just best stats, the best looking armour.I suppose there could be *spoilers* so read at your own risk. :)Personally so far, as I havent seen every armour, I really like the Nightingales Armour. B)

The Nighingales Armor is definitely fantastic. I would use it constantly if I could have put my own enchantments on it. It's too bad Bethesda does that to me in every TES game. :)As for heavy armor, I'd have to go with Daedric. I've been using it for ages though so I'll probably get tired of it and switch it out soon.

I got it while getting 100 smithing (the armor requires 90) by crafting it myself. I'm about level 46 in the game and I've actually yet to come across NPC's wearing it, nor have I found it as loot in chests; so it must be pretty damn rare even at high levels. Your best bet is definitely going to be to just make your own.

Personally, I like regular iron and steel armor with the horned helmets. That seems to be the classic look for Skyrim and I like it.

Fair enough, I must admit, it does give a slightly barbarian look which is good. :)

At the moment I wear Nightingale Armour, gauntlets and boots with the Krosis Dragon priest mask and that looks fantastic. I'm hanging to get Linwe's armour though, which is basically a sleeveless, grey Thieve's Guild Armour. Which would look greatwith the Krosis :)

Myself, I prefer the look of steel armour.-Steel Armor (with shoulderplates).-Steel imperial gauntlets (no alligence, just the emblem of the dragon is enjoyable).-Steel shin boots (I like both boots, and even though it's no different stat-wise, i like to think that when i wear heavy armor and can't move as easily, that i'm well protected)-Steel helmet (No horns, i like the idea, but ever since i've been heavy into ancient history, fuedal japan, mainly the victorian age in england, the medieval ages, not many men-at-arms had such atire for the headgear, so i try to keep it realistic, and i just like it more).I always wear enchanted gear, of the best i have wear its dragon scale for light armor, or daedric for heavy. That's only until i get my house however. When i get my house, i organize it totally & completely, and i keep regular villager clothes, a wood axe, simple armor for questing or raiding bandit camps or fortresses and the like for treasure. I spend time in town bartering what i have, buying and selling pelts, alchemy ingrediants, food, drink, etc. I don't fast travel too too often, since just traveling by foot places has found some rather interesting quests, forts areas etc.When im hunting, I usally carry a bow, wearing clothing or light armor, such as hide, studded, or leather, wearing elven, glass or dragonscale just isn't practical. I also like to go "fishing" working at mills for a little coin, and the like, living off of what I can do, the rift is by far my favorite area in skyrim, as well as the house. I always thought that whiterun had the best hunting for herbivores such as deer, elk. sometimes find wolves or sabre cats. I also thought that winterhold/Windhelm was the best area for big game; Snow bears, Snowy sabre cats and other creatures like ice wraiths, and a good area for food and some little coin from horkers. but Riften has evrything, all kinds of alchemy ingrediants, mining, for hunting, theres NUMEROUS wolves, bears, cave bears, elk, deer, goats, rabbits, not too many sabre cats, but a few, and i like the scenery the best.The only thing I don't like about the rift is the cursed black briars and theives guild (since my character is a nord, and i always model my characters after myself.) He fights for all of skyrim, his homeland which is the exact reason he hasn't picked a side in the war, because in the long run it will destroy his beloved home., He's already dispatched of the less than adequate assassins guild, the dark brotherhood. I'm trying to find a way to destroy the wretched black briars and theives, but theres likely no way to do so, only one i could find to kill was dirge, which was fun enough, but not enough damage to the guild to be worth being called a blow to them.So, to answer your question, its thisHeavy armor: Steel, because its classic, strong, sturdy, and dependeble armor for men-at-arms to rely on.Light armor:Leather, but without the helmet, and i enjoy hide/studded armor as well. I enjoy the simple things, which is why i spend a portion of the game as a villager/miner/hunter/fisher/alchemist/explorer etc. Eat every day, sleep at night when I can etc.Clothing: A wide assortment, depending on the occasion, or what im doing.

Thanks for reviving it cause I found my new outfit.I like to wear all hide items. The top is shirtless and sense Skyrim got rid the top and bottom being separate items, I can no longer hand out pantless/shirtless. D:
