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

  • The answer does not limit itself to armor weight, so, it could potentially be changed to ask about how weight effect stealth. Nov 18, 2015 at 15:23

    If it would have to be changed to make it a duplicate, that means it isn't a duplicate.

    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.

Carry weight does not have any effects on stealth.

  • It would be helpful if you could document this.

  • 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.
