In Skyrim I raided a few different places and then when I went to sell stuff I realized I had a book I hadn’t read yet that makes me able to transmutate iron ore into silver ore, and then silver ore into gold ore!! Ermegersh!!!!
Halted Stream Camp is FULL of iron ore deposits! (And the vendors have it all the time!) I put the spell to my left hand and at random I’ve been slowly changing all my iron ore into gold!! I gotz huge bank now!
Another thing I’ve realized recently is that when you are enchanting an item, before you create it you can choose to rename it. Now I don’t have to be so confused about which items I have are for sneak, pickpocket, increased carry weight, etc…I can just name them something obvious, like sneaky ring and sneaky necklace, and my legendary ebony daggers too! The one that does fire damage is Mars, the dagger that does shock and magic damage is Raiden, and the dagger that traps a soul for my soul gems is Reaper! I ran out of creativity by the time I remade a legendary soul trap mace and just named it Reaper Mace. This has been very helpful when shifting to my different equipment depending on what my motives are! I love smithing, and I love enchanting my weapons, jewelry, and apparel that I create to be top of the line!
Now all I need to do is find lots of flawless diamonds to go in my gold jewelry that I’m enchanting. I used a black soul gem in a gold diamond ring and made a +22 carry weight ring! Woot-woot! I think the more expensive the jewelry is plus the higher quality of soul gem you use affects the enchantment.
I finally made it up to be able to make Daedric and Dragon Bone armor. I’m not quite sure where to get the Daedra hearts and netch leather. What is a netch? I guess I’ll figure that out pretty soon. I’ve been doing light armor, but I’ve gotten so powerful that I sometimes accidentally kill my followers, so I like making the best armor for them so I don’t have to worry about them as much AND so I don’t accidentally kill them so easily. Cicero, of course, has my Daedric armor that I made with the only heart I found so far. (I stole it off a desk in the basement of the Companion’s building.)
Which reminds me!!!! Something glitched for me and I’m supposed to do a random quest before I can go any further in the Companions. Well, I talked to Vilkas and he sent me to rescue this priest guy that was kidnapped. He usually hangs out next to that statue of Talos in Whiterun, and his house is right there facing it. Not the one with the cow thingy grazing out front, but the other house. His name is Heimskr, and I can’t. find him. anywhere! My mission says I already saved him, yet I have no idea how I saved him when I was following this arrow all over the place in the middle of a field where it said that’s where he is, and there was a giant, and two camps full of people I killed, but no Heimskr! No one else in the Companions will give me a quest until I finish this one that Vilkas gave me, but I can’t find that guy anywhere! I’m so frustrated!!!!!! I broke into his house and he’s not there. I came back over and over at different times and he’s never home. I circled Whiterun inside and outside and he’s nowhere to be found. I’ve checked the stores and other places too, damn it!!!
