Welcome to Tips and Tricks!

Here you can find all manner of tips, guides and exploits to help you throughout your adventures in Skyrim.

To help you find what you're looking for we have a handy set of tags! Simply clicking a tag link will take you to all the relevant discussions in the group - or alternatively you can take a look at the QuestionsThread if you can't find what you're after. If you're having a problem with an in-game bug, check out the Bug Help Thread.

  • Exploits
    • Exploits are ways to break the game with a hugely beneficial effect for the player, such as easy leveling or immense power.
  • Glitches
    • Glitches are relatively minor flaws in the game which can be used for amusement, benefit or both!
  • Guides
    • Guides are in-depth walkthroughs on how to do something in Skyrim, such as set of Alchemy recipes or a big list of leveling tips.
  • Hints
    • Hints are little tips that you might not have known about Skyrim before.
  • Leveling
    • These posts will show you a way to level skills quickly, easily or cheaply.
  • Gold
    • These posts will show you easy ways of getting large sums of money.
  • Equipment
    • These posts will show you how to get powerful or rare items easily.
  • Magic
    • These posts give you some tips for using magic, from spells, powers, shouts or otherwise.

Don't forget if you have something to add feel free to post it in a discussion of your own, and to have it included under one of the tag links simply tag it "Tips and Tricks Exploits" for example (with quotation marks). You can use up to 2 tags per post - say for an exploit for infinite gold, I would tag it "Tips and Tricks Exploits", "Tips and Tricks Gold".

We have more T&T Challenges coming your way. There is also a Challenge Suggestion Box for future challenges!

Most important tip in the group: Have fun!

Hi guys, I was wondering about something. In the Light Armor skill tree, if I combine a heavy armor dragon mask and put a light armor Penitus Aqulatos helm above it (heard it's a possible glitch), will the Wind Walker and costum fit perks will still work? It says if I wear body, head, hands and feet light it works, so I want to try exploiting it. Anyone knows if it works that way?

Not sure when another discussion will be added, I actually haven't played Skyrim in over a month!

I know of that sneak/charge bug, although it's wonky to use while in the middle of a battle

Comment by Alastor on July 28, 2014 at 10:21pm
@James I know you're using the Fortify Restoration potion/Fortify Stamina exploit to do this but you can also Shield Charge indefinitely while sneaking.

Btw, any chance we'll see another "Afterburn" post soon?
Comment by James on July 27, 2014 at 7:20pm


'Game breaking' in this case means unlimted power attacking, running, shield many ridiculous uses.  Unlimited Stamina and Magicka (and for a brief moment I had unlimted health working) are fun, but it makes the game unplayably boring after a while.

Unlimited Shield charge into running power attacks and back into charge was probably the most fun.  With SlowTime you can actually juggle enemies pingpong style when you have unlimited charge!

appologies Casey, I was away for a month.  Not sure what you're asking Phil, the 'solar explosion' is a scripted event and they can't be stacked, a second arrow should just reset the script...and so on.

Does using the Slow Time shout before using Auriel's Bow to shoot multiple Sun-Hallowed arrows at the sun increase the effect of the solar explosion thing?

When do I get to read James' "Argument for Game Breaking"? I havent played the Seraphim yet, but knowing there is an even crazier version of that magicka absorb makes me excited all over again.

Ben C, thanks but I found it. I guess it's a bit buried since I wasn't that familiar with the tags then. Lemme revisit the rules and fix it.
Comment by Fade to Black on June 12, 2014 at 5:10pm

Rob, its possible. If you cant find it with the blue search button then its not around any more.

Teccam, it was to do a lap around the whole of Skyrim, hitting specific locations along the way to ensure you do not "cheat" at it.
