[...] and he devised a metal as hard as the steel of the Dwarves, but so malleable that he could make it thin and supple; and yet it remained resistant to all blades and darts. He named it galvorn, for it was black and shining like jet, and he was clad in it whenever he went abroad.

The Silmarillion, Of Maeglin


Galvorn armour was created in the First Age of Middle-earth by the Elven smith Eöl, who was called the "Dark Elf". Its name, literally translated, meant "Shining Black", and only Eöl ever wore it. It was stronger and less brittle than iron so it made the perfect armour.

When a player equips a full suit of Galvorn armour, he or she will gain the achievement "Dark Elf".

Attributes[]

Wearing a full suit of Galvorn armour grants immunity to many ranged projectiles such as arrows, bolts, and darts; the projectiles will simply bounce off without causing the wearer any harm. The projectiles will still damage the armour, however, and it breaks more swiftly than other armours. The player must be wearing a full suit for the ability to remain in effect. The armour however will not protect from spears and throwing axes. Galvorn armour also cannot get any protection equipment modifiers, like tough and steadfast.

Crafting[]

Galvorn armour is crafted just like regular armour using Galvorn ingots. It has to be crafted on any of the Elven crafting tables, but not on the Dorwinion crafting table.

Lore[]

Eöl, the Dark Elf, was the original creator of Galvorn. He learned metal-smithing from his Dwarven friends in the Blue Mountains. He made himself (but no other) a suit of armour out of it. Unless he taught the secret of Galvorn to his son Maeglin, the knowledge of making the metal died with Eöl.
