About the Armor Cap?

2 posts in this topic

hello every :)

has a very interesting question about the ARMOR CAP ......... has looked it up and has seen the information & equations ext ext


My question is what really happens in game play?

you see am currently doing a play through & I have a full set of Dragonbone armor & weapons, am playing Legendary difficulty & am level 47

  • I just upgraded my Dragonbone armor to around 1250pts using the traditional method (below)
  • smithing skill tree at 100
  • I used 4 enchanted items at 25% smithing each
  • and a blacksmiths potion 50%
  • Heavy armor skill tree is 82

So if I am running around Skyrim with a armor way over the cap ....uhmmm...... this is the part that I get confused about? ...... what's really happening in combat? what dose the armor cap actually do?

thank you If any one can help

You wont get any additional protection if your resistance is capped.

By default it's capped at 80% damage reduction. But you can help reduce it further with blocking.
