In Skyrim, What is the absolute maximum carry capacity for the player? Just by leveling up and level perks and without potions, spells, enchantments. Is there a known limit?
Well, let's see.
The total is 900 pts. Steed stone, as well as some armor perks, will let you ignore the weight of equipped armor. The heaviest armor is Deadric - a full suit will weigh 15+50+10+6=81 points.
The best answer I can give you is that there is no limit on carry weight, due to the Legendary update smashing the level cap into Oblivion. Because of this update, you can level up, in theory, endlessly, and therefore keep adding onto your maximum carry weight.
Hope this helps, happy gaming!
