This mod adds two custom sets of light armor to the game. One restricted to Leliana, and the other usable by anyone of any race or gender.

When I started this mod, it was only going to be an armor set for Leliana. Something Chantry themed, with a unique "profile" like Morrigan's robe, to make her stand out a bit more than the standard leather armors will allow.
In the end, I made a separate set in blue and steel for the player, or any other companion to wear. Because I put so much work into it, I figured I might as well spread it around a bit.

The set does not include a helmet. If you want to wear a helmet, I highly recommend the No Helmet Hack (http://www.dragonagenexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=202).

Alternately, you can use the retinted helmet from the Helmets without wings and retints found here:

I'd love to see screenshots of the armors on your characters, so be sure to upload them in the user images section!

If there are any problems with the mod, or any suggestions for changes, please let me know either through the comments, or message me through the Nexus.

Where is the set?!

You can find the two sets inside The Gauntlet in a chest. If you already did the Sacred Ashes quest, you can go back there and retrieve it.

Version History

1.5 - Changed the Note to Plot Item, added additional support for German language, and made the scripts compatible with Awakening.
NOTE: The armor's unique material is not fully compatible with Awakening, and its name will not show up correctly though its statistics will remain the same.
1.4 - Added scripts useable from the console to give the player the armor, and added support German language.
1.3 - Added support for all race/gender meshes for the Devout set, and increased the resoultion of the mod icon.
1.2 - Added a custom material called Orlesian Drakeskin (Special) for the armor sets that lowers the strength requirement significantly without causing conflict with other mods.
1.1 - Fixed an error in the Readme.
1.0 - Initial release.


Install it with DAupdater by following the steps below:

1. Unzip the .rar archive to a location you will remember.
2. Open the program daupdater.exe, which is in your Dragon Age\bin_ship folder.
3. Click "Select DAZIPs" and locate the "Devout_Armor.dazip" file or simply drag and drop the file into the dauptater window.
4. Select the dazip from the list and then press "Install Selected."
5. Launch the game and head to The Gauntlet, either during the Sacred Ashes quest, or after you have completed it, where you will find the items within.

Updating from an older version

To apply the update effects, it is recommended that you load a savegame from before you attained the set.

Another option is to uninstall the mod, make a forced load of your savegame, and then save again. Exit the game, install the new version, and return to the Gauntlet to find the set again.

Alternately, you can now use the console to give yourself the sets.

Follow these instructions to enable the console:
-Create yourself a new shortcut to the game, make the shortcut to the daorigins.exe file, then right click that file and open the Properties.
-In the target field, go to the very end of whats there, past the quotes, then insert “ -enabledeveloperconsole” (without the quotes). This enables the developer console.
-Run the game with that shortcut, and when in the game press the tilde (~/`) key on your keyboard to open the console.
NOTE: for some reason on my game the console is invisible! So I have to just type blindly. I don’t know what causes this or if it will do the same to you.
(-Guide written by John Vanderbeck)

In the console, type in these commands to give yourself the sets:

runscript giveitem_devout
runscript giveitem_pious


To uninstall, delete the "Devout_Armor" folder from your AddIns folder.

In Windows XP it would be located in:
C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\My Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\AddIns

In Windows Vista/7:
C:\Users\[Username]\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\AddIns
