  • Does using Bound weapons on enemies increase Conjuration?

    • Hitting with bound weapons only increases the respective combat skill associated with that weapon. (one-handed for the sword, two-handed for the battle axe, etc.)

      Repeatedly conjuring a weapon while engaged with an enemy (you know.. while the battle music is playing) increases the conjuration skill quite rapidly though. For best results, equip a conjure sword in each hand and keep casting them SEPARATELY while your summons take care of any enemies.

    • better stratagy: kill a bandit, make sure the area is clear, and soul trap repeatedly on the dead body to power level conjuration. turn off auto save during wait, wait an hour, and save every ten level ups. this is an incredibly effective way to level up conjuration; HOWEVER if you level up TOO fast, your combat skills won't match up with the leveled enemies. i advise you level up one/two handed or whatever your skill to at least 40-60 before you do this, to cause some damage. make sure to armor yourself as well.

    • If you're like me, you did everything you could to quickly raise the skill levels of the key attributes of your character. Now they're all maxed out at 100, your overall level is still in the low 70's, so you need to bring up the skills you ignored to acheive the ultimate 81 level. The problem is the leveled creatures/enemies you face now are going to be really tough to fight using your under-developed skills. For example, I focused on ranged attacks using archery, stealth & magic skills. I could kill just about anyone or anything, including dragons, with a single arrow, but I was miserably inadequate with melee weapons, and since I poured all my energy into Magicka, leaving my Health and Stamina at 100. So, what could you do?

      I like to call it "twice baking", like a potato. It's simple, really. You kill your enemies with your preferred weapons/attacks, then after you clear the area, loot their bodies for weapons and treasure, revive them using Revenant spells, then kill them again, this time using your lesser weapon/method. Unarmed, most enemies are considerably less challenging, and you can stand behind them, crouch down and surprise attack them.

      A few words of caution though:

      Bears can give you a good mauling, which helps develop your Restoration and armor skills, but they carry diseases, so check yourself periodically and cure yourself.

      Chaurus are poisonous, so be careful not to let your health get down too low.

      Unarmed opponents can run off and retreive weapons that you didn't loot, so watch out when they come back.

    • ^^ to add to this, i would avoid Chaurus and falmer all together, as they can quickly gang up and are magic and combat efficient. it usually is a very difficult fight unless you're resistant to magic and poision and have sufficient armor, i suggest you fight bandits/drauger if you can find any weaker ones.

    • I agree with Jellyfish regarding Soul Trap, but if you want to stick to the Bound Weapons method of leveling, there is a place near Whiterun where you can bring a Giant (with "bring a Giant" I mean running away with him in your heels) to a castle/temple-thing. There you stand in the entrance to the mentioned castle where the Giant can't come in. While standing there you cast Bound Weapon spells to level Conjuration. You can also use the place to fire arrows to level archery while the Giant can't hit you.
