Hints

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.


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.


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.


Infinite Smith

Get a lot of iron ingots to make iron daggers then you get a high level of smithing. Also sell the daggers for cash. Rinse and repeat.


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.


    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.

    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!


    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.


    Unlockables

    We have no unlockables for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim yet. If you have any unlockables please submit them.

    Easter eggs

    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.


    Glitches

    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.
