Only fools think they can get the strongest weapons and armor by looting chests and corpses as they hack and slash their way through Skyrim. The smart ones enchant their own gear, creating custom masterpieces any Dragonborn would be proud to equip. Of course, only a master Enchanter can really make good on such claims, which is why we’ve written a guide to help you get that skill level up to 100 in no time.
There are three ways to level your Enchanting Skill: disenchanting enchanted items (which also teaches you the associated enchantment), enchanting items, and recharging weapons with souls gems. We’re going to show you how to boost your skill using the former two methods.
Before you start intentionally boosting your Enchanting skill, however, you should at least seek out The Mage Stone, which is found among the Guardian Stones, southwest of Riverwood. Activating this stone makes leveling Enchanting (among other skills) 20% faster. You should also make sure you have the Well Rested buff for an additional 10% boost or the Lover’s Comfort buff (gained by sleeping with your spouse) for 15%.
