After we’re done with the basics we will be covering everything else so that even advanced players will find something useful in these Skyrim guides.

  • Guardian Stones

At the beginning of your journey you have sure encountered the three base guardian stones. Remember their location since they have a useful purpose: strengthening your magic spells or rather, accelerate the development of your magic power. Simply get blessed by one of the mage stones and consider switching to a magic based build: there are times when magic is way more effective than simple physical attacks.

  • Powerful Equipment

There’s a way to create really powerful equipment pieces. However this method requires 100 in Alchemy, Smithing and Enchanting, the Alchemist, Benefactor, Enchanter, Insightful Enchanter and Extra Effect skills together with the Smithing perk for the equipment you’re going to forge.

  • Craft a set of Fortify Alchemy gear (ring, necklace, gloves, circlet). These items will boost your Alchemy skills by 25%
  • Craft a few potions of Fortify Enchanting(10).These potions will enhance your enchanting skill by 30%
  • Use those potions to craft a new set of Fortify Alchemy gear: each piece will come with a 28% boost.
  • Using this new set, create new Fortify Enchanting potions, bringing a 32% boost
  • Next use these potions to create a set of equipment with Fortify Alchemy & Fortify Smithing both boosted to +29% per piece. Total boost will be of +116%
  • Use the set of Alchemy boosting gear to create some Fortify Smithing potions: these potions will now boost your smithing by 130%.

After all this has been done, equip the created items and use the potions to be enhance the equipment pieces all at once. By creating the equipment first and then enhancing them all at the same time will make you save some Fortifying Potions.
