Soul Trapping

cafe asks: Added Apr 6th 2010, ID #149804

Soul Trapping

I am about to sound like a noob.
What is the point of soul trapping? I use soul trap on a creature, and then kill it, but then what. The game says you trapped a soul, but nothing really happens. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a glitch?

If you have an empty soul gem the soul you trapped goes into it. ;)

Soul traps are used to refill majical items, (Swords, rings, ect.) so when you trap a soul it actually goes into an empty soul jem. Then you are able to use that soul jem to refill your majical items.

There are different size soul gems and souls. For example you can trap a mudcrab in a petty soul gem. Once you have a soul gem in your inventory you can use soul trap to trap souls. The biggest soul gem is a grand soul gem which are used to trap larger souls such as a deadroth. Once the soul gems are filled you can use them to recharge magical items or enchant armor, weapons, clothes, or jewelry. In order to enchant you must have use of the university. You get the university by joining and finishing the mages guild quests.
