The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Question and Answers :
Imperial Palace Gaurd Armor
Okay so I just killed a palace gaurd but for some reason I can't get his armor is there any way to get that awsome armor or is it special to those character or is there some secret place,location to find it...PLEASE HELP ME OUT!!!
most guards when they retire to their quarters take off their armor to go to sleep. One
way that you could steal it , is sneak into the guards quarters , and steal from the
sleeping guards , you will probably get caught , however you can flee from the chasing
guards , stash the armor in one of your safe chests , then pay the fine or not that is up
IT WOULD BE HARD I TRIED IT AND ONE OF THE GUARDS WAS BEHIND ME THE WHOLE TIME AND SAW ME
STEAL IT SO I'D CHECK VERY THROUGHLY BEFORE U EVEN SNEAK THER. o now this is very
importtant do not carry a torch while u steal it!
thats weird , i played a little trying to solve this but all i was able to do , was get a
shield by killing a palace guard although i did not follow any guards around but i did
find something on the web but ur not gonna like it , it says : "Worn by all Imperial
Except for the shield, all of the Imperial Watch Armor is marked as not playable which
means that the armor cannot be looted and cannot be equipped by the player" so i apologize
for getting ur hopes up , at least u can get the shield which mite come as little comfort.
i did this on my 360 when deliver martin to chancellor ocata some guard will say daedric
came in the city when u get out of the palace there will be palace guards (should be 3 of
them)one of them will die loot him u will get his stuff
Not to Contredict u , if you were able to loot a palace guards armor , kudos , however
here is an article i found on the palace guards from a VERY reliable source.
Imperial Palace Guards can only be found in Green Emperor Way in the Imperial City. They
guard and patrol the area around and inside White Gold Tower and behave very much like
Imperial Legion Guards. They are usually armed with Silver Longswords or Claymores and all
of the the guards are armored in full sets of Imperial Watch Armor, which (except for the
shield ) CANNOT BE LOOTED. Other than their armor, they are exactly the same as normal
guards in their attributes and skills.
They take many opportunities to warn you about being courteous in Green Emperor Way. Here
are some of the things they say:
"Please show respect for the Imperial Palace by keeping your voice down."
"All citizens are welcome in the Imperial Palace, at least on the first two floors."
"Remember, tresp***ing in the Imperial Palace is a serious crime. Do not venture beyond
the first and second floors."
"All visitors to the Imperial Palace are asked to keep their voices down, especially if
the council is in session."
Beyond the Guards quarters, the Palace guards become aggressive. They are easily
identified since they carry a fine steel sword instead of a silver longsword. They also
don't eat or sleep at all and are only encountered in the last Thieves Guild Quest The
The Palace Guards that wear the armour with a silver long sword (seen most seen) can only
have their armor stolen/retrieved if using a mod, therefore, this can only be done on the
PC version of the game - this is because Bethsoft released the game before they finished
it. The elite palace guards, only seen in the Ultimate Heist and Light the Dragonfires
quests, with fine steel longswords, wear the same armour apart from their cuirass which
has red trim and is stronger, this armour cannot be retrieved by any means that I know of,
I have spent much time looking for a reliable mod to achieve this, but a reliable mod is
yet to be developed.
yes, you can get it for the xbox 360, but it is extremely tricky..you need certain quests
done as well..okay first do only 3 of the mage guild quests and all brotherhood quests
then, go to the shivering isles (u need shivering isles for this) do the suicide hill
quest, get risen flesh and im not sure but heres a daedric statue that gives u the skull
of corruption , go into the palace, wait 5 hours at 2 o clock then kill a palace guard use
risen flesh on his body then equip skull of corruption cast it no ur new body then kill
the new guard then save game, in a new save then you need to load the game again when its
still in the loading screen keep pressing a a a a a a a a then you should search him and
you will see the palace armour, it does 60 defence bonus
i hope this helps it did for me
you cuold also do the brotherhood quests and kill the adamus guy and then get it but thats
not fun lol
or you could reverse pickpocket one with the bound helmet easy as that lol
a way to kill a watch gaurd is to attack it and go to the bridge then go to wher...
a way to kill a watch gaurd is to attack it and go to the bridge then go to where the
rocks are and it will get stuck u can use arrows on it if u like marksmanship or use your
magika (u may want to use poison on the arrows)
make sure you hav lvl 50 conjuration or all the bound armor spells. Use the permenant
bound armor peice and enchant them all with fire damaged and call them AA1, AA2 and ect
for each armour peice. pickpocket the gaurd and put the armor in (for some reason u can
put bound armor on people) then wait 24 hours and find the gaurd. They will be dead and
wearing deadric armor u then should be able to loot them and take there armor
if you chose thhe spellsword thing you'll have very easy, and blood of the north... i'm
only level 10 and have master sneak and restoreation... the best way to train sneak
without stealing is just crouch down and walk every where, not teleport... i kill gaurds
with the sliver long sword it's awesome... just kill a imperial legion gaurd... you can
loot his armor and weapon (like always)...i enchanted the armor for more protection XD...
i even tried killing palace gaurds for their armor... tried everything said here, listen
"NOTHING IN HERE WORKS!"so no getting their armor DX... i'm also in every group, every
single one... ienchanted my own stuff by the oblivion gate sigil stones i even sold the
armor for over 2000 coins i'm only LEVEL 10 remember that and i have 100m gold... i'm done
yea nothing works because you can't get the armor, only the shield. Dunno why but the
game's programmed that way. Bound armor don't work, looting don't work....nothing
works...unless your on pc, and let's not start that fkn debate again.
As far as having 10m gold, good for you way to go........ wait for it ...... wait for
Having that much gold and nothing to do with it, is like having an un-loaded gun....
nothing more useless than that lol. Poor boy, you should focus your energy elsewhere like
closing all the oblivion gates all 60 or so of them and getting all the different sigil
stones lol Playing this game to make fake gold that you'll never spend is like having
millions of fake money at a poker site and folding on a 100$ bet lol......totally useless.
Level 10 and 2 master skills lmao On most of my characters by then i have all the minor
skills to master level lol except maybe mercentile and armorer, cuz unilke you i don't
have that much free time to spend on a 5 year old game lmao.
So keep bragging, big bad level 10 guy lol oooh no-ones ever reached level 10 before you
are truly an oblivion master player i bow to you lmao
But you can get some cool armor and bacicly every non enchanted thing in the game by going
to command thingy and typing coc testinghall. If you want armor and weps go left as soon
as you get there and look at the doors untill you find armor warhouse and wepond werhouse.
If your a majica user the clothing werhouse
