if you have vampirism you cant go in shops because you will burn and you can only go out at night when the shops are closed

I there Amy certain towns where you can buy a lot of grand empty soul gems???

blazeboy261 answered:

I would suggest going into a dungeon that don't got any monsters in it only people or "npc" and only do this if your around level 20 or higher because then you got a better chance of getting high level items or another good place to look for gems are any mage guild some got them laying around.

Hope this helps you!

If you can duplicate all you need is 1 and duplicate it

isom97 answered:

Duplicate. If you have the Shivering Isles expansion pack, go to your inventory screen and go to the scroll part (it has to be 2 scrolls or more) and press A twice and then drop the item you want to duplicate. Problem solved.

get the skeleton key from Nocturnal shrine (daedric god Nocturna) complete her task and get the skeleton key opens any lock doesn't use lock picks and anyways you wont have any need for lock picks once you get the skeleton key.

Guest answered:

Go to arcane universerty get 1 lock pick just one! And use the duplicateing glitch and if you do not know that look it up on you tube and then get like 40 lockpicks open up the case get the one grand soul gem with nothing in it and use the duplicateing glitch on the one and get 5 or any amount so good luck!

Thank you so much for telling me that

Guest answered:

I would just run through the oblivion gates and check in there thats where I found atleast 2 of them easy and cost me nothing

Guest answered:

Go to the university if your not a guild member Steal them from the display case fence them off and buy them back and duplicate don't duplicate more then 250 in 1 go you will crash the game, if your a mage guild member it wont be stealing so you wont have to fence them off

Guest answered:

Go and check at the Corrol Mage's Guild. There are four there (if you are willing to pic some locks). Then try and duplicate one or try and find one in the Imperial City. I was stuck on this exact same problem and it wasn't nice so goodluck!

hey for those of you out there with a problem here are som tips. frist make sure you keep feeding otherwise you will lose life during the day, than go through dougnes any one that has willowisps ogers and those wierd tree ladies in them will most likely have soul gems. second if you go completely through the dark brotherhood missions in the night mothers tomb there is one in one of the stone cofinns. i have four and i'v found all of mine
but make sure you feed or you will die. that was the only time that i've die in the game. and you'll know if you didn't cause everything out side is over saturated and bright.

Guest answered:

How do you know that they are empty? I found several Grand Soul Gems, and duplicated them...took them back to the lady but she would not recognize them.
What do I do now?

When your looking for a empty soul gem, place your cursor thing onto the soul gem and look next to the description of the gem and it will say if its empty or not.

Thers 1 in crawfish cave
