Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Discussion
The problem is that when I did this, even after upgrading the armor, the game seemed to ignore the new upgraded armor values and only assigned me the base armor value of the item.
So I made a test character and spawned multiple sets of Ancient Nord Armor pre-enchanted with Alchemy and Blacksmithing. Made blacksmithing potions and then upgraded a base set of Ancient Nord Armor:
As you can see in the screenshot, the helmet itself is 474 armor and equipped but my character is only listed as having 187 armor (which is the base total value of Ancient Nord Armor + the Banded shield).
I'm not overencumbered. I don't have any diseases or debuffs.
*I am maxed out on blacksmithing and enchanting.
Now I just checked my Equipped Enchanted Deadric Armor set and counted up there Armor Rate together and it matches my Armor Rating of 672.
Body Armor 291 *, Helmet 141 *, Gauntlets 120 *, Boots 120* = 672 *
Here is the screen Shots. I have not equipped my Shield so its not in this factor as my Shield is 98 Armor Rating. Also these are all Legendary peaces that have been enchanted. Now the enchants on them do not change the base Armor level.
Body Armor ---> Link **
Helmet ---> Link **
Guantlets ---> Link **
Boots ---> Link **
**Note these screen shots have been taken through Xfire since Print Screen Button dose not work for me in Skyrim for some reason.
So Kbernstar, Please tell me what extra stuff where you using to make it get to that? So I can try and recreate this glitch/bug.
***Now remember am not saying your lying just a little confused and need to see if I can recreate this armor myself. Call me a picky

So I made the set using one of the bugged potions (which gave me like a 1308% boost to blacksmithing).
It actually doesn't really matter either way since as far as I am aware, there is a hidden armor cap of 579 (I think that's the value, something around that). It's just the bug of not recognizing that is annoying me.

It doesn't happen all the time though, for example a 2h buff pot I just made: i.imgur.com/Cs1zy.jpg
And what's more confusing about the armor bug is that just like the potion bug, it doesn't happen all the time.
Right now, it recognizes my armor: i.imgur.com/Ap6rh.jpg
