I know armour weight affects stealth, but does how much you're carrying have any effect? (More text so that it meets quality standards)

    This one is definitely not armor related – kalina Nov 18 '15 at 15:22
  • The answer does not limit itself to armor weight, so, it could potentially be changed to ask about how weight effect stealth. – Jonathan Drapeau Nov 18 '15 at 15:23

    If it would have to be changed to make it a duplicate, that means it isn't a duplicate. – SaintWacko Nov 18 '15 at 16:02

    I'd definitely say not a duplicate, as it's carry weight vs. worn armor weight. It's actually a good question that I'm curious on, as well, being a major hoarder. I hope whoever answers it also addresses how stealth is affected if you are over-encumbered... You'd expect the slowdown penalty to perhaps help your stealth, moving slower and all... but I felt like it was the same, maybe worse, as being under the weight limit. It'd be good to learn some facts behind it. – king14nyr Nov 18 '15 at 17:19

Carry weight does not have any effects on stealth.

  • It would be helpful if you could document this. – zpletan Nov 23 '15 at 7:57
  • It's correct to some degree at least - absolute weight certainly doesn't influence it, my character with cheated carry weight has half of wasteland in eq and isn't penalized for that. – Deltharis Jan 1 '16 at 22:07
