Improved stats and enchantments for the Nightingale Armor set and Nightingale Weapons.

Armor and weapons can now be tempered to a Legendary grade.

The Nightingale Weapons can have their enchantments altered at a Blacksmith’s Forge

Compatibility with Improved Closed Face Helmets.

Customization options that allow the Nightingale Hood to hide your identity, preventing you from gaining a bounty.

A Blessing of Nocturnal associated with each armor piece that allows you to learn Thief skills faster.




Each armor piece has a new enchantment, an increased armor rating, and can be tempered to a Legendary grade with the Advanced Armors perk. The armor still counts as a set, so you will still receive the 25% bonus armor you receive from the Matching Set perk. Finally, the armor is no longer levelled; instead, you will receive the highest quality armor regardless of your level.

Both the Nightingale Blade and Bow have an improved enchantment and can be tempered to a Legendary grade with the Ebony Smithing perk. The weapons are also no longer levelled; instead, you will receive the highest quality weapons regardless of your level.

Both weapons have two possible enchantments: a frost-based one and a shock-based one. You can switch between the two enchantments by taking the weapon to a Blacksmith’s Forge and applying either frost salts or void salts to the weapons.

This mod has several customization options that can be adjusted through the use of console commands (http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Console_Commands). To use the commands, open up the console commands section and type: “Set A to B”, where A is the command name and B is a value. The commands and their effects are given below.

For those with SkyUI, all customization options can be adjusted through the use of an MCM menu.

HoodBlessing OR ArmorBlessing OR Gloves Blessing OR Boots Blessing (Possible Values: 1 or 0)
Default: 1
When set to 1, you will receive the Blessing of Nocturnal associated with the respective armor piece. Setting the value to 0 will disable it.

ICFHCompatibility (Possible Values: 1 or 0)
Default: 0
When set to 1, equipping the Nightingale Hood will allow it to become compatible with Improved Closed Face Helmets, allowing your character’s facial features to appear whilst wearing the Hood. Setting the value to 0 will remove this compatibility. You will need to un-equip and re-equip the Hood when changing the value of this global, and you may need to drop the Hood from your inventory if the change doesn’t seem to work immediately.

HideIdentity (Possible Values: 1 or 0)
Default: 0
When set to 1, wearing the Nightingale Hood will hide your identity from guards, preventing you from incurring a bounty. When set to 0, this effect is inactive. Please note: when active, this effect will cause guards to ignore your crimes completely, which is potentially game-breaking. To combat this, I recommend setting the GuardHostility value (see below) to 1.

HostileGuards (Possible Values: 1 or 0)
Default: 0
When set to 1, guards will automatically attack you when wearing the Nightingale Hood. When set to 0, this effect is inactive.


There are no known bugs associated with this mod.



Why aren’t the Nightingale Hood effects working?
Following the most recent update, those who already had Nightingale Equipment Improved installed may find the Hood effects stop working. To correct this, simply drop the Hood from your inventory and pick it up again.

How do I switch between the different enchantments for the Nightingale Weapons?
See the Improved Nightingale Weapons section above for details.

Does this mod include any re-meshes or re-textures?
No. The pictures show some re-meshes, but these are from other mods. The changes to the Hood seen in the pictures are added by the Improved Closed Face Helmets mod. I have also used the Capeless Nightingale mod in some of the pictures.

The Improved Closed Face Helmets compatibility doesn’t seem to be working?
You need to activate the compatibility to use Improved Closed Face Helmets. See the customization section for details.

Guys, in the powers section, there is a power called nightingale sight that toggles the detect life effect. It explains this in the description of the hood changes.

How to turn off the life detect please... I would be using the mod if it was clearly said HOW to do it...

Matattack24 Jun 17 @ 10:13am 
Actually, its just with the blade. I was able to upgrade the bow.
Matattack24 Jun 16 @ 4:20pm 
Has anybody run into the problem where you can't improve the nightingale weapons? It won't let me do it for the bow or the blade. They won't show up on the grindstone and I have them in my inventory.

Console command for removing Detect Life on the hood not working and i typed it correctly. Please fix. I'm uninstalling until its fixed. This is a long time bug that needs to be addressed.
