  • Bartlomiej Czerniak

    I use Wolf armor from the Eorlund. Man's steel is legendary.

  • The Uncanny One

    This is why fashion is the only thing that matters.

  • Paper Moon

    500 hours and had absolute no idea about max armor cap, thanks.

  • cezary sznurkowski

    Five years of playing. Five years of lies...

  • David Nguyen

    there's a reason for Armor cap is because Skyrim lets you chose which armor looks cooler :^)

  • Alchem Childahs

    I... I think I will just stick with robes.

  • Destroyer94100

    Still wish that there was medium armor as well.

  • Grevivk007

    In the end the best armor is the most cool to you

  • Fallout Bro

    Work with iron and steel leave the elven armor to the elves

  • Averey Scoccia

    I agree that light armor is more practical, but I just think the heavy armors look so much nicer

  • J Race

    If you can enchant a ring of smithing high enough using the rest exploit, you can upgrade even a single pair of fur boots to 567 or more and wear normal clothes if you wanted to.

  • NJA2k8

    daedric is pretty overrated. dragonscale and ebony ftw

  • eowsley8

    I play as an invisible khajiit how punches people to death and sneaks in heavy armor

  • Bear face

    Shoulda made the armor cap different for different armor....that way there is still a cap...but different armor is of better quality than others

  • Mastered Ultra Instinct Gal Gadot

    I just fashion souls it. I wanna look sexy as I slay dragons. I welcome the extra challenge if there is one.

  • Nolan Beardy

    Most Hated Number 567. why? because I feel the dude behind the Maximum limit just basically "Meh" the thing and type [5] [6] [7] because the numbers are just in order of each other on the keyboard.

  • Rod Erriuga

    The armor types lack balance. Light armor has been obviously favored. I say the armor cap for light armor should be lower, or heavy armor cap should be higher. It just doesn't make much sense that light armor designed for versatility is as protective as a super thick and heavy metal plate. I mean come on wheres the love for badass heavy armor using warriors. Also, its not a waste to get the parks for ebony/daedric smithing, because while upgrading your armor past the armor cap is pointless, there is no cap for physical weapon damage, and daedric weapons does considerably more damage than steel.

  • whoreisland

    lol after the level cap was removed, all of the perk counting became obsolete

  • Ash _C72826

    Whole nightingale set looks cooler than daedric!

  • Don Qco

    "Screw you guys... I'm downloading the 'no cap mod'"

  • Mark Fenwick

    It doesn't really matter what armor your wearing you can reach the armor cap with any armor it just matters what you prefer in style or for a playthrough/roleplaying.

  • Daniel Woody

    In an update they added legendary skills and infinite leveling so no wasted perks

  • Anon Anon

    Played years and never knew about the armor cap xP thanks man

  • Corrupted Wheatley

    Light is better, you can use deathbrand, it is op as f***

  • Jon Doe

    I think I'll just play naturally, and not worry about all these complicated complications. I'm a sneaky, light armor, whatever it takes to beat the bad guy type of magical, backstabbing punk of a dysfunctional jerk. I'll drink snarky potions to get the job done. Hell, I'll even hire some drunken slog of Skyrim's societal cesspool to help get the job done.Chase me after my backstab, run to my magical runes, shocking flames, familiars, conjurations, zombies, and poisoned arrows. You have no hope you clanking metal tanks!Surrender now before you're subjected to my 50+ speechcraft.   >:|

  • TheFatMansPoint

    I wish there was a Deadric light armor :(

  • timothy1247

    on tower of strength to be fair using the wind sheer to test was a mistake i believe because it is guaranteed to stagger 100% of the time, unless i'm mistaken

  • terror24

    wind shear is supposed to always stagger no matter what dude so yea

  • Prahalad Varadan Giridhar

    Man, I wish the armor types were more balanced. Light Armor is clearly favored, though I prefer Heavy Armor (it's more of a challenge). It's weird playing a Paladin with light armor, even though glass looks sick.

  • pascal nayrat

    The information about the amour cap is so usefull, i didnt know this so it really helps my character build. so thank you very much kind sir :-)

  • TheMostEpicNameEver

    its not so fun when the whole game is broken-down technical like this :(i had more fun playing when i didnt know about the 567 armor rating,or what other caps they have.

  • UncommonGaming

    Light armor was always better...also GODDAMNIT ARROW IN THE KNEE REFERENCE

  • Jonatan Catao

    the problem with the stagging perk, is because u gave her a bugged weapon that sword always stagg no matter what.sry for my english

  • Cool generic teenager username

    I really widh Nightingale Armour was the best armour in the game lol... It just looks way too badass.

  • Griffin Finch

    You forgot about the fact that for those who are early in the game heavy armor simply protects better when neither are improved

  • JTeenmining

    ... I'm guessing this is before you could legendary skills... cause you can get to level 1000... yeah

  • M Bender

    Cough deathbrand armor cough

  • Aerin Lockeadon

    if you get all the perks, light armor is better at defence and heavy armor is better at offence, but in the mean time going faster and using less stamina makes light armor have better offence, and the stamina perk improves dps

  • Nova Sky

    I've decided its just not worth the time wasted deciding what perk to spend points on from now on I am just going to pick one and get on with the game :D

  • Hajduk Besmrtnik

    I demand!!! that you pronounce melee right... 😂😂😂

  • BerylL

    Still using my enchanted dragonscale armor, never changed it.

  • Pietro Salles

    Well... if I knew this before, I probably would have use glass armor all the way in skyrim. I think is so beautiful.

  • Bosshog

    50% less stagger is a miswording on the part of the talent. It is supposed to mean you're staggered 50% less often.

  • Chomag

    For a melee character, light armor is a pain in the ass until you hit the cap, because you have considerably less armor than heavy armor, so those sabercats, bears, bandit chiefs, trolls and falmer will hurt. A LOT.Of course, this isn't a problem if you are very mobile with your character.Also, the Smiting light armor perk tree doesn't give you access to the most damaging weapons, those are in the heavy armor tree.

  • P14NOJOE

    Your insight into the game is extremely valuable. Thanks for the good work.

  • Cooperal

    I don't care too much about the best armour in TES and Fallout games. But what I don't like about some of the perks relating to light/heavy armour skills in Oblivion and Skyrim is that they require you to wear all of one type/set. If you try to make your own fashion, you are forced to miss out on huge defence increases from those perks.Skyrim has a pretty good mod that scales the 'all light armour' and 'all heavy armour' perks appropriately to how many light/heavy pieces are being worn.

  • bayingjase2006

    Information overload and mind officially blown!

  • NerdyGamerGal

    Thanks for the breakdown! I didn't realize the level cap prevents insane armor levels so for an efficient build this is really helpful!

  • Leshreddur Mitchell

    I think perhaps things might have been patched since this video came out, because I know the 50% less stagger actually does work, and calling the Fists of Steel perk worthless is actually a tiny bit accurate, HOWEVER every fight where you have to brawl, uh the Fists of Steel perk makes all those brawling fights super easy and fast, usually only taking 5 or 6 hits to finish the fight, or you could pound away for several minutes without it. Furthermore it does stack with Khajit unarmed melee damage buff and if you really build for it, you can get around 200 damage per punch. But it takes a lot of work, and you actually have to level one handed with a weapon lol. Personally, I never ever use light armor because, I like the cushioned perk, because I have died often in late game to someone Foose Ro Dahing me off a cliff and I die, much easier to survive in heavy armor just because of that one perk. And I have actually had the Ebony Warrior die because of Reflect Blows perk. Something to think about. And honestly bud, I wouldn't worry about how you pronounce words, mee lay, may lay, wtf ever I don't care. Don't bitch so much, ignore trolls bud.

  • Joeri Andries

    with the DLC's you can get as many perks as you want and there's alot of crappy no good perks anyway, so even without them, there's more than enough of them to waste, and than the cushionned perk is just so usefull to take shortcuts when going downhill without dying... well i suppose you can go vampire lord mist form aswell or just use the shout that makes you invulnerable but still the heavy armor is nice cuz it lets you do that for an unlimited amount of time. also early game heavy armor just gives the best defence and who really cares that it makes you slower if you can ride a horseback?...

  • DragonKoal

    "There is an armor cap and no perks/potions will matter."There, that's all you had to say. Then people can just go 'Oh! i'll pick my favorite armor then max out the armor cap around 500'

  • Damon Marlat

    Eh I don't like heavy, my opinion because when I play a warrior, it feels like I have to lvl smithing if I wear heavy and light it doesnt seem like that

  • okrajoe

    Thanks for the useful tips!

  • N A

    I didn’t realize people spent this much effort worrying about optimizing stats in Skyrim. I mean it’s a single player game and it’s not really challenging to begin with. More fun to just fantasy RP in my mind but to each his own. That being said, interesting info in this video

  • HeavyMetalTherapy

    Yea i changed my character armor specialty last time (reseting the skills with dragonborn dlc) just so i could use heavy stalhim armor wich looks the coolest. Also i was lvl 80 so i really couldo do anything without bothering much about what armor/weapon to use

  • Jeremy Rodriguez

    So you are just deliberately mispronouncing melee why exactly? Just because?

  • Morbius The Menace

    7 Years later I finally made it to the vid fam, it was an amazing journey. Glad to be finally here

  • Doge

    I’m too edgy to be efficient.So I must wear daedric, it’s not a choice for me.

  • iquityoutube

    "best weapon is going to be glass" m8 DRAGONBONE WEAPONS

  • Ryku Isaigana

    The more you know.Ugh. A lot of skills use your base attack or defense. Why, Bethesda? Did you think we were gonna play the game on Novice?

  • Sianic12

    This is why I wished they handled the cap like they did in oblivion: the armor rating was equal to the percentage of damage reduced. That meant that the AR wouldn't go any higher than 85, even though it 'should' according to your armor pieces. If they did that in Skyrim again, there wouldn't be any confusion about armor cap and the 'advantage' of heavy armor.

  • Adrian Valistar

    Does the unofficial patch fix these bugged perks?

  • HeeroYuy911

    Heavy :DI did learn one thing tho that there is an armor rating cap why the hell do that when it is easily possible to get above that and that is without mods it just sounds stupid. >.<

  • Jacob Sanchez

    Its pronounced Maylay...not the way its spelt (melee).Just had to say that since you said you werent going to say it how we asked.

  • Malcolm Paull

    Dragonscale armor looks the best to me personally

  • Kory Williams

    If you play most of the game with light armor you will notice that light and heavy armor will be the same and then light will pass it. So even if you do play with light armor then the rating the points you spend on it will make your armor just as good if not better than heavy armor

  • silvertongue74

    pms-Buils on the name.pms... heheyes I'm immature

  • GalacticKnight

    You didn't improve the Daedric Gauntlets.TRIGGERED

  • MrSourGit
