Skyrim Enchanting guide: Learn how to enchant in Skyrim with our quick walkthrough

Skyrim Enchanting guide

Mastering Skyrim enchanting is the best way to equip yourself with the most powerful weapons and armor in the game. The stuff you can find, steal or buy is good, but it's the effects of Skyrim enchanting that will make it great.  

By enchanting you'll be able to push all your gear beyond it's innate capabilities in Skyrim. However, you'll need to become a Master Enchanter before you can do that, which means reaching a skill level of 100.

Coming up we're going to tell you how to do that and how to do it quickly. There are three main routes to maxing out your Enchanting Skill: disenchanting enchanted items (which also unlocks 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%.
