As far as remember, in Oblivion there is a spell for carrying more weight. Is there a similar spell in Skyrim?


There's no such spell in Skyrim.

You can carry more weight by:

  • Wearing items with the Fortify Carry Weight enchantment
  • Drinking a potion of Fortify Carry Weight
  • Adding points to Stamina when you level up
  • Giving some stuff to your hireling
  • Climbing onto a horse
  • Using The Steed Stone, allows you to carry +100.
  • The Extra Pockets perk, which is part of the Pickpocket skill, also allows you to carry +100.

    Technically, getting onto a horse doesn't allow you to carry more, it simply negates some of the consequences of being overburdened. ;-) – Ben Blank Nov 27 '11 at 10:53
  • A potion of Strength is another option, although it seems to do exactly the same thing as a potion of Fortify Carry Weight so I'm not sure why they both exist. – jwaddell Nov 27 '11 at 22:03

    Don't forget the Steed Stone which can add 100 to your carry ability. – Mike Weller Nov 30 '11 at 13:00
  • How does the horse thing work? You can always carry more than your maximum allowance, but then you can only walk slowly and cannot run. Do you mean that a horse won't care how loaded its passenger is? – DrFish Nov 30 '11 at 14:10
  • @Bora: Yes, exactly. – Dave Sherohman Nov 30 '11 at 14:36

In the vanilla game, no. With mods, yes:

Note: In older TES games like Morrowind and Oblivion, the 'fortify carry weight' spell was named 'Feather'.
