80) Save your Level Ups for when in major combat. When you level up, all of your Magicka, Health, and Stamina is replenished fully so you'll save a number of potions. I usually do this in tough dungeon or dragon battles when my health is extremely low, and it works wonders.

GREAT tip! So obvious... but have I been doing it? Nope. Duhhhh

23. Pickpocket someone who shoots target dummies with arrows, and take the arrows they were using (usually iron or steel). Then, give them one of the arrow type you want more of. They will now shoot that type of arrow instead of the one they were shooting before. Simply collect the arrows as they hit the target dummy to get as many arrows as desired.


This is the only thing I've read in the first 5 pages that I didn't know.

The easiest guy to do this with I've found is the archer inside the Thieve's Guild hideout. He seems to shoot the fastest. Much quicker than using archers in Solitude who just stand there half the time looking at each other.

11. When you break a pick or turn the lock when it's in the wrong position, the pick will "flick" towards the correct position.
Didn't know that. Interesting...
Can we confirm this?

I have personally confirmed it. I've been able to pick locks with extreme ease with this. Especially since Master Locks are very sensitive, I feel like this tip is gonna be utilized.

81. In some Dwemer ruins there are pistons that shoot upwards, if you stand on them you can sometimes get to secret places

82. Use the Throw Voice shout to attract your prey to a specific spot. Once they stop moving, snipe them with your bow from a nice vantage point and get some easy kills. Or set up traps with spells and attract enemies into it.

I noticed that I could collect an unlimited amount of steel arrows from him (of course I'm a Khajiiti thief, like those who raided the Bosmeri folks in Sun's Height of the year 1E2920) yeah I'm a nerd. Anyway, I just didn't know that you could change their arrows.

I should add a simple trick.

84. Draugr are very simple to escape from. (regular Draugr) If you feel in danger, run back through the dungeon until you find a door, or a crevice, and hide there. They usually don't go back more than 2-3 rooms, if you sprint. Though running down a long hallway, and through some rooms is ideal.

86: Those lacking the throw voice shout, can fire an arrow at points they want enemies to investigate.

87. Outside of Whiterun are 4 Kajhits (dont know how to spell it) that can be killed for lower levels to get good armor and 1 of them is essential so you can increase you block, one handed, two handed, destrution, healing, light and heavy armors and there is no bounty for it!

88. Dismiss your followers at their 'home' location. They can get stuck on the trip back & become lost to you.

89. Use r3 Unrelenting force at the feet of a stuck follower to dislodge them.

No, the Khajits are the cat-like race in Skyrim. Thugs are sent after you for stealing things.
