    This is a compiled list of creatures and their known level ranges. I put this list together to help people know what creature fills what size soul gem. I would like this to become a "Living" thread and open to expansion. If I missed something or if I mislabeled a creature please let me know and I will make the appropriate edits. It took a good bit of research from several sources but it's finally ready to post.
    Just to clarify the level needed to fill each Gem:

    Petty: 1-3

    They cheated the Falmer of having grand souls. They were snow elves back in the old days.

    Thank you SO MUCH. I have finaly given up on keeping grand soul gems cuz i can never find anything that fills it. I thought for sure that a ice troll would, but they dont. Now i can put those babys to use instead of enchanting each thing individually with the black star. BTW i know its a no brainer, but i wanted to make sure....Dragons dont fill gems.......Even though u absorb there soul by bein dragon born, they should fill a grand soul gem. What beast is grander then a dragon?

    I would expect a reply, "No gem is large enough to contain a dragon's soul."

    As Dragonborn you absorb a Dragon's Soul, so it CAN"T be contained in a Soul Gem.

    Ah, so I can reap a soul from a summoned creature then? I had not noticed that. Thanks a bunch for listing this, I've been going crazy with my Grand soul gems getting filled with Petty freaking souls.

    It's not how we fall which defines us but how we rise after falling
