I am trying to max out a few suits of armor beyond legendary and I need to know how much does your smithing skill have to be boosted beyond 100 to get to the maximum level cap. I have noticed that some people have armor sets that have armor ratings up to 1000. How much skill do I need to do that?

  • @fbueckert, that's with regards to enchanting. We do have some smithing discussions, though, like - gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/37735/… I'm not sure that this specific question has been asked, though. – agent86 Jun 5 '13 at 20:56
  • There are two questions here that the asker mistakenly thinks are the same question: "How high can I boost smithing above 100 to get the maximum armor improvement?" and "how can I get armor ratings up to 1000?" The second is a duplicate of that link, the former is a new question... but possibly not one the asker is actually interested in. – SevenSidedDie Jun 5 '13 at 21:01
  • @firedragon04 Does the link that agent86 provided answer your question? – SevenSidedDie Jun 5 '13 at 21:02

In a previous answer, I boosted my smithing skill from 100 to 130 by using two +15 items.

This was sufficient to get to the armor cap (567 rating) with many armor perks in Elven armor. Rating higher than 567 yields no additional protection.

If you're smithing something with higher base armor rating (which most armor has), it would take less smithing skill.
