TriviaEdit

  • Crafted potions of fortify smithing may not affect armor or weapon improvement if perks have not been placed in smithing. Perks allow armor and weapons to be improved beyond base improvement. A potion's percentage seems to affect this difference only.
  • To achieve the maximum percent increase for Fortify Smithing Potions of 174%, one must use four 41% enchanted armor pieces of Alchemy, and the Seeker of Shadows perk from Sallow Regent black book. Then, for the actual smithing, one must then combine this potion with four 41% enchanted armor pieces of smithing for maximum smithing upgrades to items (using smithing-specific items only).
  • Using a forge does not stop time, so in order to obtain the benefits of a potion, the entire smithing process from activation of the forge to the pressing of the craft key, must be done within the duration of the potion (typically 30 seconds). This generally means that one will need one potion per item or two to be forged.
