I've just finished the quest of the 8 Dragon Priest mask and got Konahrik.

But when I want to upgrade it at the forge, I can only go to Perfect. Can't it go to Legendary ?

I'm 100 in forge.


The table shows what quality improvement an item will achieve based on smithing level and if the smithing perk for the item is taken or not. You can continue to improve on items once they reach Legendary, but the description will not change.

Quality             Skill Required     Effect  
            Without Perk    With Perk   Armor   Other
Fine             14             14        +2     +1
Superior         31             22        +6     +3
Exquisite        65             40        +10    +5
Flawless         100            57        +13    +7
Epic             134            74        +17    +8
Legendary        168            91        +20    +10


Smithing skills higher than 100 can be attained using "Fortify Smithing" equipment and potions, thus allowing any item to be made Epic or Legendary.

    The first sentence is incorrect. Enchanted gear is not in any way different from non-enchanted gear for purposes of smithing, except for requiring the Arcane Smithing perk. The problem is that some unique items lack a material keyword, which means they do not benefit from %material% smithing perks. If you're playing on PC, you can get mods that fix that problem, check the Skyrim Nexus. – kotekzot Apr 17 '12 at 20:20
  • @kotekzot I removed the first sentence. I didn't knew about that, thanks =) – Michel Apr 17 '12 at 20:34
  • Thank you, I managed to do it with enchanted stuff and elixir. Thank :) – Axiol Apr 18 '12 at 10:04
  • @Axiol I am happy about it, if you need anything else, just come and ask =) we are glad in help a fellow gamer =) – Michel Apr 18 '12 at 14:10
