For other uses, see The Steed Stone.

The Steed Stone is a standing stone in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is located northwest of Solitude, and directly north of the Statue to Meridia.


The Steed Stone gives a bonus of one-hundred extra carrying capacity and no movement penalty is received by armor. Armor also has zero weight when equipped.


  • The effects this stone grants are nearly identical to the Conditioning perk in the Heavy Armor skill tree, the Unhindered perk from the Light Armor skill tree and the Extra Pockets perk in the Pickpocket skill tree. However, clothing, shields, and jewelry are unaffected by the armor perks, but the Steed Stone allows for them to be weightless too.
    • Combined with the Extra Pockets perk in the Pickpocket skill tree, a Dragonborn can have 200 units increase of carry weight.
  • When using the Steed, it is possible to carry multiple copies of the same armor with no effect on total carry weight, even items with different enchantments (as long as they are the same base item). Wearing one of the items makes them all weigh nothing.
    • This is also possible with Conditioning and Unhindered from the Heavy and Light Armor trees, respectively.
