Elder Scrolls Skyrim cheats, tips, tricks and trophies
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Easy level up
This Glitch allows you to level up several of your stats as well as actual level. Ones Raisable : 1 handed, 2 handed, Archery, Destruction, Sneak and Restoration. In order to do this glitch travel to Riverwood, then look for Alvor and Sigrid’s House. (Blacksmiths house) Go inside and look for Hadvar. When you see him ensure it is just you and him around. Then Enter Sneak mode and proceed to utilise the skills you wish to level up. He is immortal and will not react besides falling temporarily when out of health. I.e. No aggression to you or calling the guards.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Free training for leveling up in combat skills
Go to Riverwood and get Faendal as your follower. Ask him to train you in archery and pay him the gold. After gaining a level talk to him and ask to trade with him. Take the gold back out of his inventory and then ask him to train another level. Rinse and repeat infinitely. This also works with any of the Companion followers who are also trainers in Whiterun.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats| Infinite arrows
If you pickpocket someone who shoots target dummies with arrows and take whatever arrows they were using (usually iron or steel) and give them 1 of the arrow type you want infinite of, they will shoot that type of arrow instead. Just collect them as they hit the dummy and you can build up a nice stockpile.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Leveling Glitch
This glitch works for any plot-important invulnerable NPCs! This also works on Ralof, an early companion from Helgen if you do decide to regroup with him.
NOTE: Before trying this glitch, you’ll need to free Hadvar from Helgen. During the quest “Unbound”, follow Helgen to escape instead of regrouping with Ralof. Now Hadvar will appear in Riverwood.
1) Travel to Riverwood and enter Alvor and Sigrid’s House. Hadvar is inside, he’s who you want to find.
2) Wait after 8 AM for Alvor to leave. Now Sigrid and a little girl will be downstairs while Hadvar waits upstairs alone. If Hadvar isn’t upstairs, just wait for him to come upstairs.
3) Now save your game before continuing!
4) With Hadvar alone upstairs, sneak behind him. Equip whatever weapon corresponding to the skill you want to level up; like “One-Handed” or “Two-Handed.”
5) Perform a heavy strike on Hadvar from behind while sneaking. Doing so will dramatically increase your Sneak and combat skill. He’ll fall over and get back up with no criminal repercussions. Hadvar is invulnerable — he won’t die from your attacks.
6) Repeat the process, waiting for him to stand up, sneaking behind him, and hitting Hadvar with a heavy strike.
7) Only some magic attacks will work, others won’t, you’ll have to experiment.
8) Keep sneaking and attacking to level up your skills as desired.

Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Defeating Giants Easily
Get a Giant to chase you to a nearby river, then go under water, and the giant will immediately turn and walk away. When he does, sneak out, and shoot him with an arrow. When he turns around to attack, go back under the water, and he will again turn and walk away. Keep repeating this process until he is dead.
Another method is to find rocks just out of the gaints reach and jump up.
Note: This is a slow process that takes a while to complete.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Easy Experience
After you enter the Keep with Hadvar and Ralof at the beginning of the game, have Hadvar cut the bindings of your hands. Grab the iron sword off the wall in the room. Then, simply keep hitting Hadvar with the sword as he stands by the door to keep leveling up the One-Handed skill. Once you knock him down, make sure to not hit him anymore until he gets back up. To level up the Sneak skill, keep sneaking up on Hadvar while he stands by the door, and then attack him with the sword. Do this for the first 32 levels. Once you reach level 33 for the Sneak skill, you can simply sit behind him and hit him with the sword every six seconds. To level up the Two-Handed skill, progress a little further in the game, and get the two-handed sword. Once you reach the area with the bear where Hadvar gives you the bow and arrow, keep hitting Hadvar with the two-handed sword to easily level up the Two-Handed skill.
Note: Do not press [Sneak] while doing this or Hadvar will move on. To level up the Destruction skill, keep burning Hadvar. If you leveled the One-Handed, Sneak, Two-Handed, and Destruction skills to level 100 using this method, you should have 37 perk points and be at level 37 to start the game.
Note: This glitch was done on an unpatched version of the game. You can delete all patches for the game by using the “Clear hard drive cache” code for the Xbox 360.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Duplicating Books
This trick requires that you own a house with an alchemy lab. Activate the bookshelf, then place the desired book to be duplicated on it. Leave the menu, then 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.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats| Infinite Weight Limit
Containers are persistent and items do not disappear. Thus, any barrel, box, or chest can be used to store your items. It works best to use containers near a quick travel loading location. However, since the game is buggy, your items probably will not disappear when placed in a random barrel or chest, but there is no way to guarantee they will not disappear unless you purchase a house and store your items in it.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | 100 Speech
100 Speech – A glitch that allows you to quickly obtain 100 speech.How to get 100 Speech Easily:
Firstly, you’re going to want to go to Riften. Get there anyway possible, preferably fast travel if you’ve previously visited it. Once you’ve arrived in Riften, walk north-east until you find the store called “Black-Briar Meadery”.
Go inside and talk to ‘Ungrien’ the shop keeper.
Now, press on “Tell me about Mavan Black-Briar”. Another menu will then pop up, click “Come on, get the truth off your chest. (Persuade)”. Your speech will level up. Now it’ll put you back to the menu where it says “Tell me about Mavan Black-Briar”. Just keep pressing X (PS3) or A (Xbox) and you will continously get your speech leveled.
Depending on your speech level, you have to go through it a few times before it levels up. This is the fastest possible method to get 100 speech on Console yet discovered. I hope it helps.
These are the skills of Skyrim. They are seperated into three catagories. Click on the skill to learn more about it.

Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Critical Hits

The higher the value of the book, the higher the chance of finding a skill or quest as a result of reading it.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Increase Enchanting Skill

Cheat Stop an enemy from Casting/Channelling
Using the power ‘Unrelenting Force’ will cause enemies to flee and in effect hinder them from Casting/Channelling.
Cheat Storage Made Easy
With the multitude amount of Dragon Bones and Scales in this game, as well as the perpetual amount of other heavy weapons and apparel, storage can be a hard thing to come by.
Instead of investing money you may not have, try storing these items with your companion. Companions can easily trade weapons with you through talking with him/her, so utilizing them to their fullest potential would provide you with a lesser weight to carry and/or store in external storages.
On the downside, companions may also get over weighed with too much material, but supplying them with even their capability will provide you with a lesser burden of heavy equipment!
Elder Scrolls Skyrim Cheats | Fast travel while encumbered
