For other uses, see Heavy Armor.

Heavy Armor is a skill in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Heavy Armor skill is raised by the use of certain kinds of armor that the in-game character can equip. Heavy armor typically weighs more than light armor, injuring speed and carrying capacity at the offset of added protection. Penalties to speed and carrying capacity can be countered using The Steed Stone, consuming Potions of Carry Weight, or using the Conditioning perk.

Leveling

"Those trained to use Heavy Armor make more effective use of Iron, Steel, Dwarven, Orcish, Nordic, Ebony, Daedric, and Dragonplate armors."
Loading Screen[src]

Leveling up armor skills is relatively simple: take physical damage in combat while wearing armor pieces of that type. To level up the Heavy Armor skill most efficiently, wear a full set of Heavy Armor (head, hands, feet, chest). The rate of skill gain is based on the total amount of damage incoming before armor is applied. Thus, taking multiple attacks from a skeever or wolf levels heavy armor at a significantly slower rate than blows from Giants or Mammoths would. Being the victim of power attacks likewise grants more experience than a standard attack. Conversely increasing armor rating does not decrease the rate at which the skill advances.

One can rapidly level up the skill simply by finding an enemy (or group of enemies) which uses physical attacks and allowing them to attack without attacking back. Mudcrabs are useful in this regard, as they have low health yet can do enough damage, especially the larger varieties. Restoration magic and healing potions can be used to restore any damage taken (thus one can also level up the Restoration skill simultaneously). If you have a shield of the appropriate armor type, one can also upgrade the block skill as well during this process. Taking on larger groups and/or more powerful enemies will level the skill(s) faster, but one has to balance their ability to restore their own health against the amount of damage they will be taking.

To level up the skill in complete safety, especially at low levels, one can find a brawl opponent willing to brawl repeatedly without charging a wager - usually during a quest such as the "Hired Muscle" quest often dispensed near the beginning of the Companions questline or the "Taking Care of Business" quest for the Thieves Guild.

Books

Quests

The following quests increase or help to increase the Heavy Armor Skill:

Trainers

Advantages/Disadvantages

Main article: Armor (Skyrim)

Advantages

  • Offers a greater variety of armors available to craft.
  • Offers a greater number of Perks to choose from.
  • Offers much more protection from physical attacks.

Disadvantages

  • Makes more noise than light armor, so sneaking is harder.
  • Slows down movement much more than light armor.
  • Stamina is drained much quicker while sprinting.

Damage reduction

Armor increases the Dragonborn's armor rating, which decreases how much physical damage is dealt to them. The maximum damage reduction is capped at 80%, which is achieved:

  • When wearing 4 pieces of armor plus a shield: 542 armor rating.
  • 4 pieces of armor or less without a shield: 567 armor rating.

Perks

The following are the perks that become available to select as the skill is leveled up.
