Jump Up Mountains Backward!

If you can't climb up a hill/mountain any further because it is too steep, try this! You can turn around (so your butt faces the mountain - and you're looking away from the mountain). Once facing the opposite direction, try jumping and pressing the control stick toward the mountain. If you do this a bunch, you'll actually go up the mountain even though it's too steep to walk up. You can also try diagonally in both directions to help you creep up the mountain.

Solution To The Dragonreach Cave Puzzle (Spoiler)

For the first mission for Dragonreach (inside the cave) you must solve a combination puzzle. Look to the wall above the closed gate and you will see two heads with a gap in the middle. Each one holds a picture of a creature (snake / dolphin). On the floor by the lever is the third creature (a snake). The combination is Snake, Snake, Dolphine. The second combination is found deeper in the chambers and it is a turntable combination, which is more difficult. The solution is Bear, Owl, Bird. Insert the claw, and then the door will open. That's it!

Big Money And Big Smithing

Okay I'm a level 31 Nord so I know what I'm talkin about.
{1} Buy the book transmute for a local shopkeepers or jarl mage.
{2} Go to the blacksmith in the city and buy all the irom ores.
{3} Use the spell twice as many times as you got ores.
{4} You should have a lot of gold ores.
{5} Go to the forge and go to jewerley and make all the gold rings you can.
{6} Go to the local shopkeepers and sell the rings, but you can only sell so much til you have to wait 2-3 days til he/she has all her money back.

Putting Bucket On A Persons Head With Out Them Knowing

This a super easy way to steal stuff off a person without them knowing its really helpful if your on a quest. First, pick up a bucket by holding the A button until you are able to move it around (the bigger the better). Next, move the bucket over the person of your choice then drop it on that person. Finally, crouch make sure you are undetected by everyone around you then steal the desired item. Thats it but I'm not sure if it works on bandits and guards but it works on every one else and it helps to be high in sneak hoped this helped and if it didn't sorry please like and comment.

Invisible Chest

If you take a carriage to dawnstar you should go to iron breaker mine. As you approach the mine look to your left there should be some trees and a few rocks go over to them and look around it might take you a minute to find it but theres an invisable chest there. Now depending on what level you are there is one of everything in that chest. Now go outside the village and there should be this little camp out side if not wait a few days and it will come. Now trade 1 thing with the carravan and buy 1 thing after this save your game, and the next day you come back to it ( real world time) there should be 1 of every thing back in that chest enjoy!

The Oghma Infinium

When you get the book from Septimus and the cube, go to the house in Whiterun. Take the Oghma Infinium to the book shelf and open the shelf. Click read then put the book on the shelf. Get the book agin and click do not read then read it again and repeat.

Get Everything To Level 100 In 5 Minutes

Once you get the book "oghma infinium", go to or buy the house in Whiterun and go to the bookshelf in the alchemy laboratory. Crouch and go into first person, then activate the bookshelf, go down to books, activate the book, choose the desired path, then place the book on the bookshelf. Once you see the book appear on the bookshelf, activate it, say do not read, and take the book. Do this as many times as needed/desired. BTW, do not read the book before you get to the bookshelf or you ruin the glitch. I recommend saving when you get to the bookshelf just in case.

Free House In Whiterun

Once you become the thane of the city, go to the top of dragoncreach and wait untill the guy you buy the house from comes behind the desk. Ask to buy the house from him, and quickly open the chest under the desk, put all your gold in it, then he will give you the key, but you don't lose any gold.

Claw Puzzle Tip

When you are at a part with a claw (golden, diamond, ivory, etc. ) instead of opening the door with trial and error go into your inventory and look at the claw's bottom and you will see the same symbols as the ones on the door. From top to bottom in the same order have the wall match the claw and the door will open.

How To Become A Vampire

  • When you are fighting against vampires, you also have a chance of contracting vampirism each time they land a hit on you - that could turn you into a vampire! If you contract the disease, it can be cured with any of your regular disease potions. But, if you want to turn into a vamipre, you can wait three days and the disease will become permanent
    There are four stages of the disease of Vampirism. The longer you go without blood, the more powerful the benefits of vampirism will become, but the weaknesses will also get worse. You can only drink blood from sleeping NPCs. As each stage of vampirism increases, some effects stay the same, while others change. The four stages of Vampirism and their effect (changes between stages are only listed) are as follows:
  • Stage 1
  • Vampires have a 25% increase to their Illusion spells. They are 25% harder for NPCs to detect, have 100% resistance to diseases or poisons, and are 25% resistant to ice.
  • Vampires are 25% weaker to fire, and their health, magic, and stamina stats are reduced by 15 points in the sunlight. Those three stats also do not regenerate.
  • Vampires have the power to reanimate the dead to serve them. They can also improve their night vision with another power.
  • Vampires gain a spell that allows them to drain the health of their enemies.
  • Stage 2
  • Vampires are 50% resistant to frost, and their vampiric servant and drain powers are more powerful.
  • Vampires are 50% weaker to fire, and their health, magic, and stamina stats are reduced by 30 points in the sunlight.
  • Vampires gain the "Vampiric Seduction" power, which calms enemies (animals and people) for 30 seconds. Thus, they will not attack you.
  • Stage 3
  • Vampires are 75% resistance to ice, and their powers of reanimating the dead and draining the living become more powerful.
  • Vampires are 75% weaker to fire, and their health, magic, and stamina stats are reduced by 45 points in the sunlight.
  • Stage 4
  • Vampires are 100% resistant to ice, and their vampiric servant and drain powers are more powerful.
  • Vampires are 100% weak to fire, and their health, magic, and stamina stats are reduced by 60 points in the sunlight.
  • All NPCs are hostile towards Stage 4 vampires.
  • Vampires gain the "Embrace Of Shadows" power, which turns your character invisible for three minutes.

  • Once you're turned into a vampire, you can only lose it by turning into a werewolf (lycanthrope), or by completing the "Rising at Dawn" quest.

    Infinite Arrows Of Your Choosing

    1st get a partner, hire one or earn one it does not matter. 2nd give your partner the arrow of your choosing it does not matter what kind. 3rd go fight something, when your partner attacks the enemy they can use an infinite number of the arrow you gave them. 4th if you want you can pick the arrows that your partner shot and place them in your inventory.

    Pick Pocket Repeatedly

    Start by going to jail in Riften and then unlock your jail cell door. If you look directly across from your cell, you'll see a guy named Black Briar. You can pickpocket him even after he's caught you. Pickpocket all of his stuff and then place it back into his inventory and pickpocket it all again. You can repeat this any number of times - as many times as you want!

    Slow Motion Mode

    To do this glitch, you'll need a bow, an arrow, and the Eagle Eye perk. All you need to do is zoom in with the bow and the game will then slow down. Then, reload a save while still zooming! The game will stick in slow-motion mode until you try to use the zoom feature again. We know it works on the 360. Not sure on other platforms.

    Get Two Followers, And Wearwolf/Vampire Hybrid (Dawnguard DLC)

    First off, go through the Dawnguard DLC until you get to turn into a vampire lord, then continue until serana joins you. Afterwards join the companions, continue until you become a werewolf (4th mission in) and have vampire lord power selected. Press RB and a at the same time, you will drink the blood, and when you wake up you will burst into a vampire lord, as soon as you can, revert form, and talk to Serana (must be done quickly for this to work) then just wait a bit until the screen goes black, then you will wake up near windhelm, aela the huntress will join you as well (do not continue the companions questline from there (AELA WILL LEAVE YOU! ) because aela and Serana are invincible they cannot die, and they will follow you around almost everywhere. Hope this helped. JUST IN CASE, SAVE BEFORE YOU TRY THIS, in case it doesn't work.

    Magic Paper Easter Eggs

    When you go inside of the Dawnstar Museum, look for the display case that has some pieces of paper inside it. You can pick the cabinet's lock and then get the paper. Then, if you cast a spell on it, it will turn into a bucket. What you do with the bucket is up to you.

    Ride A Horse In Deep Water!

    To do this glitch you need a horse then go to a place with a deep lake or river or even an ocean go deep into the water until your horse starts swimming then get off of your horse then get back on it again and you'll be running in water. With a horse! Might take a few tries to get right.

    My Perfect Character Build

    My Name Is Pakiria, a level 81 imperial. Be A nord with two handed weapons, like the Dragon Greatsword. Light Armor easier to make - Dragonscale armor. Lockpicking, because thieves make bank! And finally, the Staff Of Magnus, because it's so cool.

    New Gold

    Any jarl or sometimes person you help along the way by doing tasks for them, you can usually go through their chests and drawers with new gold present. Sometimes its laid out on the counter or under the one the innkeepers stand. You can only do this when you have helped the person out enough.

    Duplicate Books

    You can repeat this glitch if you own a house with an alchemy lab. Activate the bookshelf and then place the desired book to be duplicated on the shelf. Leave the menu and immediately activate the bookshelf again. If your book has not yet physically appeared on the shelf, wait at the menu screen where you can loot the bookshelf. Once you see the book in front of you (it will hover in front of the shelf while the menu is open), loot the book from the shelf in the menu. Immediately close the menu, and you can click on the book itself to read and then take it. You will now have looted the book twice, putting two of them in your inventory. Repeat this as many times as desired. It is especially useful with expensive books such as the Oghma Infinium.

    Duplicate Apparel Glitch

    Place any apparel (armor, jewelry, etc.) item on a mannequin. Then put the item back into your inventory. Leave the location of the mannequin, and go to a different area (for example, exit a house), then return to the mannequin to find the item still on the mannequin, which you can then take. Repeat this as many times as desired.

    Cure Lycanthropy

    First you must join The Companions faction and successfully complete all quests for The Companions Faction. Once that's done, talk to the leader of The Companions, Kodlak Whitemane, or ask around about a cure for werewolves. Speaking with Aela the Huntress in Whiterun will also tell you more about The Companions' affliction. The Companions will offer you a special quest that will cure your lycanthropy, which is a permanent change. You will never be able to become a werewolf again. Successfully complete the quest to not be a werewolf ever again.

    Partners Have Infinite Uses On All Enchanted Weapons

    1st get a partner, hired or earned it does not matter. 2nd give them any enchanted weapon the stronger the better ? 3rd when your partner uses the weapon the weapon never runs out of the enchantment, hint if they have a weapon with 25 fire damage they will always do fire damage. I found that this also works with the soul trap enchantment, give all your soul gems to your partner and give them a weapon with the soul trap ability and they will fill your soul gems for you and never run out of soul trap.

    How To Get Around Faster

    I realized this after playing for two days and alot of running. If you need to go across the map you can look for the nearest capital and pay for a carrage ride there and then walk the much shorter distance to your final destination there is a cart outside each capital.

    Unlimited Containers And Storage

    All of the containers in Skyrim are persistent and hold items that do not disappear. So, any container (for example: barrels, boxes, chests, etc.) can be used to store your items. You can use containers near loading locations to keep things more organized. But, be careful, because some containers can "reset" and your items could vanish. You can try out different containers to see the effects. To be the safest, you'll need to purchase a house and store everything within it.

    3d Model Views

    When the Skyrim loading screen appears, you can move the left and right analog sticks. When you move them, you'll rotate the models displayed on the screen.

    Muffle Spell Tip

    Almost all good spells that you can use make you actively use them in combat or use them on specific objects. The Muffle spell does not have the same requirement. The Muffle spell is an Illusion spell that quiets your movements. You can repeatedly cast Muffle while you are walking around to increase your Illusion skill and increase your overall experience.
