When you progress to a certain quest in the main storyline called 'Blood of the Daedra', Martin requires you to give him a daedric artifact and warns you that this will remove the artifact from the face of Tamriel. Now if you are a collector and want to have one of every item in the game, then there is a simple way to get around this. There are 4 Daedric items which can actually be cloned unlike the others, these items are the Ring of Namira, Azura's Star, Wabbajack and the Ring of Kahjiiti. Using a duplication glitch clone one of the above mentioned items and you will be able to have all daedric artifacts still in your posession after this quest.
First, this may require a few health potions, healing magic, and that you are wearing heavy armor at all times.
Go to a fighting guild hall (Preferably one with lots of people in it.) Pull out your weapon and attack someone within the guild. Holster your weapon and go run into a corner. Everyone in the guild will come to attack you. Just sit in the corner and take the pain until you reach your desired Heavy Armor level which may take some time. You may yield to your attackers at any time to end the fight. However if the authorities get involved, you may need to pay a fine.
Don't worry, the fine should be low if you only struck the guild member once. (The fine should be atleast 40 gold or more.)
For all you stealthy people out there...
If your favorite skill is stealth, then my discovery will aid you greatly. It just so happens I found a ring of invisibility. If I remember correctly, I found it in the Oblivion Gate outside of Cheydinhal. On a daedra. When you go in the Gate, make sure you leave no stone unturned when you ascend the tower inside the gate. It won't be easy to spot the daedra wearing it(obivously). You can then hotkey the ring, and turn it on, and off whenever you want. It tis' pretty awesome, and is VERY helpful when sneaking about. (The ring has a chameleon skill of 25%, making you invisible, and lasts until you take it off.)
Happy sneaking. - The Prodigy
This is a really cool thing but I reccomend that you have lots of grand soul gems.
Firts get a really good weapon and go to the enchanting station and enchant the weapon with an grand soul gem and have it put on as drain health for max damage no bonus time and no area damage and it is awsome I did that with my madness longsword and I made it drain 61 points of health(put in mind that I used a gem with 800 power so it's not that great as a 1600 gem) I did that with a fine iron long and I made it drain health 90 and area 2 for 2 seconds it was wicked.
with a bow and arrow, aim (but dont shoot) then pull up your items menu, then select the type of arrow (best if its the type you have more of), then select the item you want to duplicate, then exit the menu ( make sure you are still aiming) then shoot and the item you selected in the menu will be shot out as well as your arrow (depending on the # of arrows you have will determine the amount of items was duplicated)
If you need to get your stats up quickly heres a good tip here is what you need:
Gold(about 2000 maybe)
Soul gems(6 of them better if they are full grand soul gems)
Access to and enchanting station(quicker if you are arch mage)
Heres what you do now go to the enchanting station and enchannt your armour to what skill you want.
E.G: if you can't carry lots of stuff enchant all of your armour to boost strength or if you want to boost speed do the same with speed
Me I did this with my full madness armour and except my helm and shield I used a matrix.
Select a spell, hold down block, and cast the spell(if you have a shield just hold down block, if you don't have a shield then just have your weapon out and block that way). Just press the cast button constantly. This will double the speed of any spell being cast. It is really good for leveling up, or killing people a little faster.
First, join the mages guild by going to any main city other than Imperial city. After you get the guild key, go to the arcane university, south-east of the Imperial city. Walk into the arch mage lobby, and to your left should be a case with Three soul gems in it. Duplicate your lock picks and unlock it. (It is very hard so make alot) Once you get it open take all of them. Two will have grand souls in them. Duplicate as many as you want for selling or enchanting at the altars if you have access.
O.k first get two items that are exactly the same that you want to use this for.
Second hotkey one of the two to any hotkey spot.
Third equip it using the hotkey.
Last If you unequip it and then reequip it using the hotkey it will get fully repared and if it's magical it will also get fully rechaged. It's Awsome I use it all the time that way I don't have to repair and pay to rechage my items. It should work. It works for me.
The best way to find the Nirnroot and complete the quest whith sinderion, you should go to imperial city and march along the eadge of the water (near all the rocks) and you will find some. Wait a couple of days then get back there and find more!
To easy level your alchemy I would suggest saving all food stolen and try to on your quests pick up a few food items then store at your house. Then at your house take out all your food and use your mortar and pestle, calcinator, retort or alembic to combine ingredients. Your level will sky rocket and if you become a master and use 1 ingredient then youll be able to make tons of potions that are worth at least 40/50 coins. Sell them to an alchemist/fence and gain lots of money

In a couple of spots, you can raise your skills free of charge by simply watching NPCs practicing combat.
One is a small pavilion North of the Arena, where gladiators Branwen and Saliith practice hand-to-hand combat from 6 a.m. To 1 a.m. Get up close to the fighters for a minute or so. You'll soon get a message that you've picked up some tips and that your Han-to-Hand skill has risen by five points.
The other location is the plaza outside the Cloud Ruler Temple. Here are the Blades Pelagius and Fortis, the hours 5 a.m. To 8 p.m., and the skills gained Blade and Block (two points each).
Just incase you are pretty new to this game make sure you note down that when you are using destruction spells against dummies etc. You don’t gain any experience.
It’s simple, just use “Summon Skeleton” and a skeleton will appear that you can fight. As you progress you can use more advanced summoning spells and summon more difficult enemies.
When you go to sleep, you fully recover and your health bar will become filled again, so, go to sleep to revive!
In the Imperial City, head to the Telos district. In the South-east section, look for "Dorian's House", and head inside. Dorian will ask you to leave. Bribe him then Kill him dead. Now, when you loot his corpse, click on his gold and just keep pressing A. The gold should just keep on coming, and it'll never drop below 8 or so, but the amount of gold will be proportional to your level (a higher level character will net more gold per grab). It takes awhile to actually make some money off this, but hey, it's free. Just make sure you get what you want before heading outside, because once you do, it's over. profit of regret
Instead of coughing up your hard earned gold just to get some sleep, join a guild, it’s free and almost all guilds have beds in them.
If you already know how to duplicate then this is going to be really easy to do
First duplicate the enchanted ring or necklace so that you have at least 2 coppies. Then equip one of them and a different set of arrows. Now put an arrow on the bow and bring up your inventory W/OUT FIRING THE ARROW, press A on a DIFFERENT set of arrows, go to the duped enchanted ring/necklace and drop the one you ARE NOT wearing. If it drops both, it worked. And if you want to be sure it worked, pick it up and try to equip it again, it should say "unable to equip enchanted item" or something like that
(!THIS DOES NOT WORK W/ ARMOUR!) T_T
Tired of commiting crimes and not having enough gold, or just can't be bothered to pay the fines?
Well, I can fix this!
NOTE: You will NEED to be able to defeat the Jailor at the prisons.
Ok, Here we go:
Step 1: Get your weapon or bow
Step 2: Find and Kill ALL the jailors of the prison you want to escape from
Step 3: Take ALL the keys from the jailor's bodys.
Step 4: Go into the prison cells and drop one key in each cell (It is also HIGHLEY reccomended to drop a potion or something by the key
Step 5: Get arrested and go to jail
Step 6: If done correctly, look for the key you dropped in the cell and unlock the gate
Step 7: REMEMBER TO DROP THE KEY BACK IN THE CELL!
Step 8: Get to the evidence chest and get your stuff.
Step 9: Avoid the gaurds as your bounty go's up.
And boom your out of jail without loosing points!
If you want someone dead without a bounty you can use a rage spell. They will go mad and start attacking the gaurds then the guards kill them, sometime they just survive by running away.
Here is some help on doing this.
1.never do the rage spell on someone twice. They will just run away or they will tell the guards.
2. Never do the rage spell in front of a guard they will arrest you
3. Always be pepared the person you put the spell on they might turn on you.
4. If you want something from a store you can put the spell on the shop keeper when they run out of the store you can rob it because no one is around
5. Rage spells is also very useful when you are on a dark brotherhood quest
6. Rage spells under twenty levels will not work on guards
The answer is Hour Glass, it's in the basement above the garlic cloves in the rafters. It gives you some flawless gems and an enchanted ring or neckless I can't remember wich one.
If you are trying to level up your armorer and/or destruction, go to the arcane university and create a spell of disinegrate armor. Cast this until your armor breaks, then get a repair hammer and just fix it. Keep doing this to get to very high levels. Note: It helps if you keep the cost of the spell a low amount of magicka as you can repetively cast it. Also, using a cloning glitch on a repair hammer can make this tactic quite effective as you never run out of repair hammers.
If you head northwest from leyyawin right at the edge the keep heading up north tou will find a small village called "border watch" then head a little bit northish you will find a daedric shrine on a hill and follow sheogoraths instructions. As a reward you will get the awesome wabbajack
If you are having problems with selling enough to fences or just getting money then rob the market distrist in the Imperial City. The best shops to rob are Mystic Epeorium and the Gilded Carafe because they have epenssive but light loot. Also he Gilded Carafe has a Nirnroot in the store.
This is just a small bit of info that won't help you much but did you know that when you draw power from an Ayelid well it helps raise your restoration skill.
After joing the Mage Guild - Go to the Mages Guild in Chorrol. Search around the guild for things like Calcinators, Retorts, Pestles and Mortars and Alembics. Find as much as you can and then go and find the person in the guild that will let you sell them. You should make over 600 gold coins.
I have looked into it and unless you intend to sell it/dupe it, Why do you bring umbra back? You don't have to have the dog with you if you get the umbra sword without visiting the shrine, and better yet, the umbra sword is weightless? Maybe their is something I'm not getting because I just like to have weightless weapons such as the honor blade of chorrol, the blade of woe, the armor of tiber septim and a whole lot of garlic!
