Oghma Infinium Glitch cheat for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Oghma Infinium Glitch

To do this you must have Hermeus Mora's Daedric artifact, Oghma Infinium, and a house with a useable book shelf.

Activate the bookshelf and go to the books section and read the Oghma Infinium.

Choose your path then close the book and store it.

WHITHOUT leaving the bookshelf take the Oghma Infinium back.

Rinse and Repeat.

*Note: It is wise to save before trying this as leaving the bookshelf with the book in your possesion will cause it to dissapear as it is only meant to be used once.

This can be used to get your character to the max level, level 81, in about 15 minutes.

Guys i definitely find a way to use that glitch on the newest version of the game for X360!

First of you should have at least one bookshelf.

1. Take the book in your inventory and do not read
2. Go to your house
3. Read the book in your inventory and pick the skills
4. After picking the skills close the book
5. After closing the book, immediately drop ot from your inventory (by this way the book will NOT be removed from your inventory authomatically)
6. Take the book ( you cannot assign skills this time, you should do the next steps first)
7. The book is now in your inventory again. Go and place it in a bookshelf.
8. After placing it to a bookshelf close the bookshelf menu.
9. Now you can see the book in the bookshelf. Read it DIRECTLY, however do NOT assign the skills from here. Just take the book to your inventory.
10. Now you can read it the book again in your inventory and it can improve your skills like the first time. This is exactly same as the step 5.
11. Continue from step 6

You can repeat this process as much as you want.

You can do this with all spell books in the game! I got curious and tried it out, and you can just keep duplicating and make a ton of money!

this didn't work for me so I fooled around a bit and made it work by first getting the book and placing it in a bookshelf then reading it and after choosing my path putting it back in the bookcase and leaving it then "without oppening the bookcase" select the book and pick it up without choosing a path put it back into the book case and THEN choose your path put the book back into the bookcase leaving the bookcase again then repeating as many times as it takes. Hey it worked for me but I would save before trying it and I haven't downloaded any patches either so keep that in mind.

Just to let you know this glitch can still be done Fortunately/Unfortunately (depends how you play) Running patch 1.3.5 with a bookcase and only a bookcase you own, it will not work with anything else.(Inside your house for example if you have one).

This glitch IS patched in 1.3, I wish Bethesda would make saves playable without the need for damn patches. Patches should be optional not forced as most patches cause more damage rather than fixing.

UPDATE Patch 1.3 fixed this. If you want to do this you will have to create a new game and clear your xbox cache and play offline. It was bound to happen thats why i put this glitch on.

Also level 81 was not a planned max level it was the result of all the skills be leveled to 100.
