I love how easy it is to level smithing, alteration, lockpicking, pickpocketing, and speech all together (steal gems either from pockets or store lockboxes, transmute iron ore into silver or gold for whats needed to turn the stolen gems into rings or necklaces so their no longer considered stolen when I sell them) but I absolutely HATE how difficult it is to level up skills like restoration and alchemy. Please help me figure out simple cheats

Sorry for being late again with the weekly update! It was unexpected, but I bring some good news.
If you would like to opt out of receiving notifications for these threads, you can install the AnnouncementsIgnore script for personal use.
This weekend’s event was the Campfire Gauntlet. The Field Lane is replaced with the Campfire Lane. Whenever you summon a creature into the Campfire Lane, friendly creatures in that lane gain the summoned creature’s keywords. The minimum number of cards in a deck is 40 cards for one- or two-attribute decks and 60 cards for three-attribute decks.
A new kind of Crown Crates is coming. It’s the Sovngarde Crown Crates that contain a number of Sovngarde-themed collectibles, such as a pretty new mount and a mask and even an Alkosh’s Hourglass Replica furnishing that’ll surely be appreciated by lore fans.
The prologue quest of the Markarth DLC is now available to everyone. You don’t have to own any DLCs or buy anything to try it out. Go to the in-game Crown Store, then to Quest Starters, and then pick “The Ravenwatch Inquiry” and enjoy the quest. Don’t forget to add info to the wiki, if you have time!
There’s an announcement about the DLC and the upcoming in-game events. In this article you can find links to videos with the announcement (the youtube one is about 22 minutes long, so do watch it if you have time). The upcoming events are: Lost Treasures of Skyrim (September 23-October 5), Witches Festival (October 22-November 3), Undaunted Celebration (November 25-December 12), New Life Festival (December 21-January 2, 2021)
All players who own Greymoor can participate in an event during which all players can dig up Antiquities to reach milestones and unlock free rewards for all players. Note that you can search for Antiquities in entire Tamriel, but only Greymoor owners have skills needed to do so. You can also complete Western Skyrim daily quests for bonus rewards. See all the rules and rewards here.

For me, I really enjoyed Vermina's Skyrim quest, because it felt like I was a part of a redemption arc and in my headcanon, I told Erandur that he was better then he thought he was at the end of it. And when Vermina told me to kill him, I immediantly sheathed my sword and said in reality "No". Maybe I'm getting too invested in these games. But what's wrong with a gamer becoming emotionally involved with a game?
But enough about me. What about you?
So i just started the "Bloodline" DLC quest and have gotten Serana out of Dimhollow Crypt. She was with me the entire time we were traveling to the Icewater Jetty, but as soon as we got to the castle i turned around and she was gone! Now I've done this quest many many times and never had this problem. I've retraced my steps twice and waited for days, i really don't want to have to load back since my last save was four levels ago and since then I've done the entire main questline. Has anyone else had this problem with her this early? Any help would be much appreciated! :)
(Btw for y'all who asked i play on PS3)

In words. My YouTube isn’t working, and I really need to train my alchemy and make a profit.
I’m in the skiingrad book quest. Who is the Pale lady” that the prisoner mentioned spoilers, I don’t care, but would help me greatly.
I think this is where I ask for gaming help, if not please notify me where to put such request, and perhaps move this post.
Am I missing something? Perhaps a dialogue option I should have taken, and is now unavailable? In the quest The Fallen I talk to the Jarl of Whiterun, and doing my best he refuses to lend is palace, then I see no option appear. The only thing I see I could do is to increase my persuasion skill, as the option to persuade remained after 2 attempts, which would likely take many levels. I saw no option to end the civil war for another option as the page mention; I think doing that in this circumstance is metagaming, thus feel I'd be cheating if I'm going straight to deal with the war, as opposed of grinding to get some Persuasion points, and--perhaps--doing that my PC becomes compelled to get involved with the war.
Thank you kindly
When do you want TES VI to take place and why. In my opinion, I would like it to take place either after Skyrim but not as early as the third era.
Here's a fun game.
I'll say a quote from Skyrim, and you guys guess where the quote is from and who said it.
Whoever guesses right first gets to say the next quote and then we guess that one.
And so on and so forth.
I'll start us off with this lovely quote.
Should bethesda make another elder scrolls arena but tamriel IS the arena(Battle Royale on a continent)

For those looking for an easy way to find groups in ESO, check out the Elder Scrolls - LFG engine. Its a fully automated tool for matching players looking for groups with playing who are running groups. You can customise your activity, group roles and chat with your 'virtual' group members via the website.

So I was doin the Lost to the Ages quest, which requires you to travel to a lot of Skyrims dwemer ruins. I noticed a trend while I was doing so. Near quite a few of these dwemer cities/ruins, there can be found an Orc stronghold. Didnt know if it was just coincidence or if there could be a historical/lore reason for it.

14-Never Get Caught Stealing
Even players who avoid the Thieves Guild at all costs are tempted to test their luck stealing items from under the noses of unsuspecting NPCs. This isn’t necessarily because they are immoral. They may just need to prove to themselves that they are capable of getting away with it. However, some find out the hard way that sneaking isn’t their forte.
For those unlucky few, there are a few techniques that will guarantee success. There is no shortage of barrels in Skyrim. Pick one up and place it over the head of the shopkeeper (or other NPC) or position it so it blocks their field of vision. If you are having a hard time with this one, another method you can try is picking up an item and carrying it elsewhere. Once you are outside of the NPC’s line of sight, you are free to steal the item(s).
13- Go On An Adventure Within An Adventure
Yes, you read that right. Before you ask, no, this isn’t Inception. (Spin the top if you don’t believe me.) However, Skyrim does have something in common with Nolan’s masterpiece. It has an adventure within an adventure. Avid readers of the books found across Skyrim will derive great pleasure from the choose your own adventure book, Kolb & the Dragon: An Adventure for Nord Boys.
The book can be found in multiple locations, such as in Breezehome or Carlotta Valentia’s house in Whiterun and the Winking Skeever in Solitude. The book follows Kolb, a Nord Warrior, on his quest to slay a dragon. Whether or not he is successful all depends on the choices the reader makes throughout the tale. Of course, if you don’t like where the story is going you can always go back and choose another path. No one has to know that you failed.
12- As one of the most powerful foes in skyrim, Forsworn Briarhearts are difficult to take down in a fight. Whether the melee type or the shaman type, these guys are ruthless. What else would you expect from an enemy willing to undergo a ritual where their actual heart is cut out and replaced with a briar heart?
Hand-to-hand combat with a Forsworn Briarheart is an uphill battle that you may not win. This is because they possess perks which drastically increase the amount of damage dealt by them. However, fear not! There is a way to defeat them without fighting them head-on. If your sneak skill is high enough, you can pickpocket their briar heart which instantly kills them. Of course, this isn’t as easy as it sounds. Forsworn Briarhearts have heightened hearing, making it difficult to sneak up on them even with the Illusion spells Muffle and Invisibility
11- farm An Unlimited Number Of Arrows
When it comes to arrows, Skyrim is a huge improvement compared to previous Elder Scrolls games. Arrows are now weightless, which means the Dragonborn can carry an infinite amount of arrows of various types, so scavenge to your heart’s content. Arrows will never leave you over-encumbered.
However, just because you can carry an infinite amount of arrows doesn’t mean you can’t run out. No one wants to have to buy arrows from an actual merchant when they are easily found all over Skyrim. There is a way to farm arrows for a little-to-no cost for adventurers on a budget. All you have to do is find an NPC doing target practice, like the ones on the Great Porch in Whiterun, and collect the arrows they shoot. If you want better arrows, you can pickpocket their current arrows and replace them with one of the types you wish to farm.
10- Throw Spiders At Your Enemies
Who doesn’t want to toss spiders at their enemies? I mean, this should be Peter Parker’s true power, not web-slinging. Not only does Skyrim allow you to throw spiders, but it also lets you craft them. “But how?” you ask. It’s simple. After clearing out White Ridge Barrow in Solstheim, you will stumble upon the Imbuing Chamber, a crafting station that allows players to create spider scrolls.
There are a wide variety of spiders that can be created this way, including ones that explode upon impact and others that can control the mind of enemies. Depending on the quality of the gem used to craft these living hand grenades, players can summon up to six spiders at once.
Now go forth and use arachnophobia to defeat your enemies!m
9-Storm Call In Blackreach
Storm Call is a powerful shout that causes a strong thunderstorm to appear above the Dragonborn. Much like a bullet, the resulting storm does not differentiate friend from foe. Anyone caught beneath it is struck by powerful lightning bolts, including innocent citizens and followers. If all three words of power are used, bolts will strike every 3–6 seconds and deal 80 points of damage. For obvious reasons, it isn’t recommended to use this shout in a town, unless you like having bounties on your head.
As fearsome as this shout is, it is impossible to use it indoors. After all, you need the sky to conjure a downpour. However, there is one exception to this rule: Blackreach. That’s right. Storm Call actually works in the underground city. Now you finally have a way to make the Falmer pay!
8- use Elemental Fury To Mine Faster
Mining can be such a bore, especially when you do it automatically by activating the vein. The animation of the Dragonborn slowly hacking away is one of the most boring in the game. However, mining is often a necessary and interesting evil. Sure, you can buy what you need, but there is nothing like extracting ore
with your own two hands.
If you hate watching the mining animation, one thing you can do is equip your pickaxe and manually swing at the vein to extract ore. You can also dual wield pickaxes to get ore twice as fast. If that still isn’t fast enough for you, try using the Elemental Fury shout to increase the speed of your strikes. It is super effective, and you will be done in no time.
7- Master Fishing
Unlike goldfish, the fish of Skyrim just don’t know when to give up and die. The Dragonborn has got to eat, but they don’t overly concerned with your plight. Instead of willingly sacrificing themselves to your blade, they swim away when you approach them. Sure, there are fishing poles in Skyrim, but you cannot use them. What is a poor Dragonborn to do?
Well, you can wade into the water and hope you catch one with your bare hands, but no one wants to work that hard for a meal. If you are in a hurry and don’t like getting wet, there is a way to catch a large number of fish in a short amount of time. Just hit the fish with your Unrelenting Force shout, and they will all float to the surface.
Here’s to good eating!
6-Purchase A Torture Chamber
Here is something for the sadist in all of us. After completing the Dark Brotherhood questline, the quest “Where You Hang Your Enemy’s Head” becomes available to the Dragonborn. Now that the Brotherhood has moved to the new sanctuary in Dawnstar, the Dragonborn can contact Delvin Mallory of the Thieves Guild to upgrade the factions new home.
The one upgrade that should be at the top of your list is the torture chamber. It will cost you 5,000 septims, but it is totally worth it. It comes with four chained torture victims who you can interrogate or, due to their high health, use to train your skills. If you choose to interrogate them, they will tell you the location for treasure chest valued between 1,000 and 2,000 septims.
Your neighbors will be so jealous.
5- Enjoy The View From The Top Of Skyrim’s Hidden Peaks
If you have the Dragonborn add-on, then you have likely already traveled to and explored the remote island of Solstheim. However, did you know there are hidden locations on the island that only show up on the map after you’ve discovered them? Solstheim contains four peaks that are so high you must reach their summits before they are marked on your map. Once found, you can fast travel to them as you normally do.
The four locations are Frykte Peak overlooking Saering’s Watch, Hvitkald Peak to the west of the Abandoned Lodge, Mortrag Peak overlooking Castle Karstaag, and Mount Moesring overlooking Moesring Pass. The climb to the tops of these peaks is treacherous. We recommend using the Become Ethereal shout if you have it, in case you lose your footing. However, once you’ve found them, you can easily take a break from adventuring to enjoy the view anytime you want.
4- fight The hidden bosses
You may have taken down Alduin and Miraak, but have you defeated Skyrim’s three hidden bosses, Vulthuryol, Karstaag and the Reaper? If not, then it’s time to fire up the game again. Finding these bosses requires a bit of effort. These three are some of the strongest enemies in the game, so bringing them down won’t be a cake walk.
We begin our journey in Blackreach, where the dragon Vulthuryol is found. To summon him, use Unrelenting Force on the yellow orb above the debate hall. Next, to find the frost giant Karstaag, travel to the ruins of Castle Karstaag with his skull (found in the Glacial Cave). As soon as you place it upon his throne, he will appear, ready to battle. Finally, the Reaper is found in Reaper’s Lair within the Soul Cairn. You must collect three reaper fragments and place them on his altar.
3-Hunt For Potions In Solitude
Sometimes you tire of slaying dragons, listening to soldiers, and helping others. If you are looking for a distraction from adventuring, are too cheap to buy health potions, and too lazy to make them, then perhaps it’s time you travel to Solitude to hunt for free potions. There are Potions of Healing strewn throughout the city, although there doesn’t appear to be a legitimate reason for them to be there.
Even if you aren’t looking for them, you are bound to come across at least one as you explore the city. A few can be found on the ground between the Winking Skeever and Angeline’s Aromatics, on top of the wall between Bryling’s House and the entrance to the Blue Palace, and on the lower rooftop of the Bard’s College. Of course, there are still many more to be found.
Why don’t you travel to Solitude and see if you can find them all?
2-Get Wasted With A Daedric Prince
Once you reach level 14, you will be challenged to a drinking contest in a tavern by a Breton mage named Sam Guevenne. If you win the drinking contest, he says he will give you a staff as a reward. Of course, almost nothing in Skyrim is exactly as it seems, and Sam Guevenne is no exception. After three drinks, the Dragonborn blacks out and what follows is a quest for answers that rival that of The Hangover.
While trying to find Sam, the Dragonborn learns
they trashed a temple, stole a goat and sold it to a giant, and that they almost got married. Eventually, Sam is found in Morvunskar after entering a portal to Misty Grove, where he reveals that he is actually the Daedric Prince Sanguine.
Too bad no one will ever believe you partied with a Daedric Prince.
1- Use Clear Skies To Make Auroras Appear
The Clear Skies shout comes in handy when you need to see your enemies clearly on a rainy or snowy day. Even without enemies around, you may be the type who likes to bask in the sun. There is no shame in wanting a little sunshine in your life, especially when you spend so much time outdoors during your travels.
However, you may not have considered trying out this unique shout on the night sky. When used at night, Clear Skies will clear the clouds from the sky to reveal a fascinating display of auroras across the canvas of the night sky. The aurora may not physically benefit the Dragonborn in any way, but they certainly make the open landscapes more bearable and beautiful than before.
Besides, a little eye candy never hurt anyone.
We finished and big thx to @Bigbuzzyy13 for inspo
Ahzidal's armor is a pain to get. Now I don't know the best set-up! Is it helmet better than the mask? should i even bother with the rings?
we all know the blades knew alduin was going to eventually return as depicted on Alduin wall so why didn't they take a precaution like dispersing the dragon bones throughout Tamriel instead of burying dragon bones in a Mound.

I was just sitting playing Skyrim when something occurred to me, if the Dragonborn were to actually die, the world would end, like when people jump off cliffs, it's like, the dragon destroyer, died by falling off a CLIFF.

During the vanilla start Lokir ask Akatosh for help. My question is did they listen and send down Alduin to help Lokir out in the hour of his death or is it mere coincidence?
