The Helmless Warrior plugin modifies Heavy Armor and Light Armor perks so they affect characters who are not wearing all 4 pieces of armor. The new, modified perks will work on any character wearing at least 3 pieces of armor, as opposed to the original ones that had only worked while wearing a full set.

In essence, you can enjoy the benefits of the various armor perks without wearing a helmet. (Or gauntlets, if you prefer that.)

An example perk:
Custom Fit (original): 25% Armor bonus if wearing all Light Armor: head, chest, hands, feet.
Custom Fit (patched): 25% Armor bonus if wearing at least 3 pieces of Light Armor (excluding shields).

A list of all the perks patched in Helmless Warrior:
Cushioned, Custom Fit, Deft Movement, Matching Set (Heavy Armor), Matching Set (Light Armor), Reflect Blows, Well Fitted, Wind Walker

The Helmless Warrior plugin was created by Adul.

INSTALL NOTE: For mod compatibility reasons it is recommended you make sure Helmless Warrior is as close to the end of your Skyrim load order as possible. The later this mod is loaded the less likely its effects will be overridden by another. To change your load order, select the Data Files option from the Skyrim launcher.

Looks like a good mod. Does this affect the Ancient Knowledge status you get from completing the Deepest Fathoms (think that's the name) quest where you take the lexicon to Avanchnzel? I.E., will I get the 25% dwarven bonus with only 3 pieces of dwarven armor?

For some reason it does not work for me, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling many times and it still didn't work :P

It did and thanks a ton; it lets me not look like a tin can and more like a nord :)

@Grant I haven't used that mod yet, but if the armor has proper flags set up (and I'm sure it does), then this should work with it just fine.

Does this work with the warchief armour?

@Grauhr Yes, it does. The only exception being some of the armor sets not working with the Matching Set perks. This was a bug/oversight in the original game and this mod does not fix it.

Does this work for the armor sets in Dragonborn DLC? Great mod!

Thank you so much! I wanted to make a character that wears a hood and light armor, but then realised that if I did, the perks wouldn't affect me. This is a lifesaver.

I don't know how to do this sort of thing but would a hide helm toggleable like in DA:2 work?

YES, this mod is perfect. I've been looking for a mod that does this with no glich reports for ages.
