Random loot denotes the spoils of specific encounters in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Items such as weapons and armor, and gold coins appear in various locations based on player level. For example, a level 5 character would get a hunting bow and 10 iron arrows from a chest, while a level 62 player could get Ebony Armor from the same chest. Rewards gained from quests are seldom randomized.
Each spawn location for randomized loot contains a script that selects an item from a list of possible loot.
- Chests and containers
- On surfaces such as desks or bookshelves
- Quest rewards such as Stormcloak and Imperial quests
- Hidden Chests
- Radiant Quests can offer a pool of randomized loot.
- Enchantment modifiers - almost always found as randomized loot.
