What to loot, what not to loot, that’s the question. For my own game experience I figured out the following rule. When I loot a corpse or chest or just take something in Skyrim it must have a special purpose or a “weight to value ratio”. The latter one is done by a simple formula.


IF (item_value > (item_weight x 10)){ you loot this item! }ELSE{ you do not loot this item. }


We take a item as example: Iron sword of Looting. It weighs 11 KG and has a value of 150 gold. This is an item I WOULD loot. 11 x 10 = 110. So 150 (item value) is greater than the outcome, so I loot this item.

Another example: Wooden sword. It weighs 7 KG and has a value of 49 gold. This is an item I would NOT loot. 7 x 10 = 70. So 49 (item value) is smaller than the outcome, I leave this item since it does not meet my looting rule.

By this standard you can easily decide wich item to loot.


Too much loot 🙂
