Easy money, Easy leveling

November 24, 2011

– Start off by smithing Iron Daggers.
– Enchant them with the most expensive enchant you have (for me that is: Damage Stamina)
– Use only Petty Soul Gems (filled, duh) (you won’t level faster by using better Soul Gems!)
– Use, if you have any, speech improving items (Speechcraft) you will earn more gold!

So to summarize:
+ Smithing
+ Enchanting
+ Speech
+ Gold

WIN WIN, happy crafting!
