Unhappy -4500 armor rating

I love Skyrim and i've been playing it quite alot. Unforunatley my character somehow recieved -4500 armor rating. Basicly it means that most enemies will kill me on 1 blow, even on novice difuculty.

Does anyone know how I can get normal armor rating values again?


Help is greatly appreciated.

Are you playing on a console or on a PC?

How long ago did you notice this? You may have to go back several saves to find an uncorrupted save with correct armor rating and start playing forward from that point.

Try this: Make sure you aren't doing anything to increase your AR (remove all armor, wait for any spell to expire). Bring up the console using tilde and try the console command: player.forceAV DamageResist 0

That should reset AR to 0, then you just equip/cast what you had before and it should work normally.

Ahh console commands, the cause of and solution to most of Skyrim's problems.

Negative armor points?

Mind blown. Seriously, how does that work?

The Marked for Death shout damages AR. It's also bugged to be a permanent AR damage, so over time it'd stack to 4500.

Either that or mods gone wrong.

There was a bug in the early versions that once you reached 100 in a skill it 'wrapped' around to 0 (or a negative value) and produced all sorts of bizarre errors. I would assume this was fixed, but if you are still using a save carried through from previous patches it could still be around.

This happened one time to my follower.
Solution:
Open console and type:
player.modav damageresist 4500

This should solve your problem
