Unbound Thralls

I'm not sure if this always works , but if you trap a dead thrall in a dungeon then leave for a while they will no longer be bound to you.

Free archery training

(You need 200 gold to do this). Go into Riverwood and speak to an elf named Faendal, he will give you a note to deliver to Camilla. When you have done this, the next time you speak to him, ask him to follow you, and then ask him to train you, after you have the trained the maximum number of times you can for your level, ask to trade with him, and then just take your gold back. This can be done as many times as desired! Have fun!

Everyone says this is hard truthfully it's not. it depends on what you doing if you what sneaking pay a trainer or always sneak around. All you really have to do is find a trainer, or just repeat the cycle of that skill you want to master. - it does take a long time if your just starting, but once you get to a 10 or 20 in that skill it's alot easier then you think.-

First discover the holds then once you get a follower and level 2 discover location nearest to the hold, once a higher level maybe 4 or 5 go with your follower to locations away from the hold.

Go to a hold and pickpocket people while there not looking and then target their homes. -don't steal their key usually they figure out someone stole their key and they go after you, also it won't count because your not lockpicking the door.-

Do local missions for holds, they will ask you to kill dragons or giants. Our instead of fast travel walk to your next location if it's on the other side of the map fast travel, while walking you should encounter atleast 2. - they like attacking cities with no walls and outside of whiterun, where the ompanions are first seen slaying a dragon.

You go to windhelm and find the little boy named aventis arrentino and do his mission, then sleep in an inn, complete the rest from there.

Simply after killing a about three dragons, you can look for shouts in the magic section and buy one. Or just locate a 3 power word walls for that one shout. Also the greybeards will teach you a complete shout.

Easy Gold:One other method

So, by now I'm sure almost everyone has heard of the invisible khajiit caravan inventory chest in Dawnstar... Am I right? If you haven't heard of how to find this chest then listen carefully, this chest will become your friend.

For those who don't already know of the chest it's just to the left of IronBreaker Mine in the city of Dawnstar, it's by some rocks under a tree to the LEFT of IronBreaker Mine if you're looking into the entrance of the mine.

Okay, so to get a lot of gold realitively quickly: go to Dawnstar and find the invisible chest. Then, take the gold, the armor, the weapons, and all the smithing supplies out of the chest(Take whatever you deem necessary, I'd take the lockpicks too). Next, take your newly found loot(This loot will not, I repeat will not be considered stolen)Take your loot to a blacksmith, preferrably one with a lot of money and sell all of what you got out of the chest, unless you want to keep it.P.S.You may need a horse to transport your goods. Last step, repeat until you have enough gold but,enough is never enough right?
NOTE: In order to repeat you must wait in Dawnstar atleast two days and then talk to the Khajiit woman. You must ask her "what have you got for sale?" but you don't need to buy anything. You may need to wait longer, if the Khajiits don't show up.

Play and play again
Enjoy this tip and may you gain infinite wealth

Easy Conjuraton skill with soul trap

An easy way to gt a high conjuration skill is to first make sure you have the spell soul trap. Second you must find any dead body. Go to the dead body and repeatedly cast soul trap on the body. This will raise your conjuration skill. I did this, and I went from level 27 conjuration to 90 conjuration.

Easy Blocking Leveling

To start, get all of your BEST armor, and I mean heavy armor (don't forget a good shield). It would be wise to get some good health potions. Try and get a good healing spell too. Now, go into any big city in Skyrim and commit a very minor crime, but refuse to pay the fine or go to jail. Find a corner (there are some good ones in Whiterun and Solitude) and run to it. Hold your shield up and let the guards keep hitting it. Shield bash them if you want. Use your healing as you go to keep you alive. When your done, make a break for the exit, come back, and pay your fine. Good luck!
