Between PS4 and Xbox One, there are more choices with Xbox One due to the openness of the platform. Adding new items and scripts to PS4 is difficult, or even impossible. With that, there are thousands of armor mods available for Skyrim on the Xbox One.
Mods which add new sets, change crafting methods, adjust carry weight or even allow you to do absurd things like fly. However, for this list, we felt it was right to just show you some of the best Skyrim armor mods available when it comes to new sets.
For more Skyrim content including mod lists for the Xbox One, make sure to check out our dedicated area here! All the links below link back to the Bethesda website where they can be downloaded, and the list below is in no particular order.
Bandoiler: Bags & Pouches
Struggling with your set carry weight in Skyrim? What this mod does is adds various bags and pouches to the game, which can be worn with practically every armor set in-game. Equipping these items will increase your carry weight in an immersive way, with them increasing the amount from 25 all the way up to 100. Once installed, you can begin crafting the pouches at a tanning rack.
Black Mage Armor
This is a stand-alone armor mod for your Mage characters, which comes in Cloth, Light & Heavy versions. It’s compatible with all races as well as male and female characters. After installing this mod, you can craft all of the armor pieces at a forge. Later on, they can be enchanted and upgrades.
The Volkihar Knight Vampire Armor is a unique set that can be crafted once you have unlocked the Ebony Smithing Perk. It’s a heavy armor set which comes in 3 different variations, each with unique effects that will happen when the complete set is worn by your character.
This next set is a daedric-styled armor which is specifically for male characters in Skyrim. There are two sets available, one which is a heavy armor set and the other which is a light armor set. There are 2 ways to obtain the armor in-game, the first being by crafting it at a forge after unlocking ‘Daedric Smithing’. Otherwise, you can obtain each set by defeating a pair of Dremora Kynreeve.
This mod is actually a pack. Installing it will add the King Crusader Armor Set, Locust Storm Spell and Blade Set Reloaded. You can find the armor at Bloated Mans Grotto in two separate chests. Otherwise, you can craft it after finding it under the ‘Ebony’ tree. The Locust Storm spell is only usable once you have the armor equipped.
Bosmer Armor Pack
Bosmer is another pack, which contains 5 different sets of armor consisting of 29 armor items and 6 weapons. These are the Plain Armor, Reinforced Armor, Elder Armor, and Wild Hunt Armor (which has both a light and heavy version). All of these sets are compatible with both male and female characters.
Zerofrost Mythical Armor
Compatible with both male and female Skyrim characters is the Zerofrost Mythical Armor set, which belongs to the Nightingales. It’s a unique set, and not a replacement with it being a remaster of the developers older mod. When you’ve installed this mod, you can find the armor in a chest near the Nightingale Hall Entrance.
Sithis Armor is a Dark Brotherhood Assassin themed armor set for Skyrim. There is a light and heavy version available. To actually get the armor, you will require 85 Smithing and a 75 Light Armor or 75 Heavy Armor level, otherwise you won’t be able to craft them. The stats from this set equate to those roughly on Ebony Armor.
Dragon Carved Armor Set
The Dragon Carved Armor Set is a port of a PC version, done by a different developer (with permission). However the develop of the Xbox Version also included an extra light version. It’s a great looking set, and once installed, can be crafted once you have expert smithing. There are also weapons that go alongside this mod.
Our final armor mod for Xbox One is the Valkyrie Armor Set. Unfortunately, this set is for female characters only, and included alongside it is also some weapons, which are all based on Norse Mythology. After installing this armor mod, you can find the set inside a chest at Silent Moons Camp, or forged once you have unlocked Advanced Armor.
