    Guide to max out Smithing and Enchanting early, with profit.

    Whether you are a new Skyrim player or on your second game, if you feel like crafting armor is a favorite pastime of yours or if you want to survive on a higher difficulty throughout your playthrough, I present you my guide on how you can max out Smithing and Enchanting easily as early as when you first reach Whiterun, while making profit too.

    IMPORTANT: Make sure to have at least the "Turn Undead" enchantment learnt, by disenchanting any weapon with that ability in Dragonsreach next to Whiterun, on the Enchanter's Table; you will easily find such weapons very early in the game.

    Once you reach Whiterun, feel free to do sidequests until you have earned around 500-1000 gold (you need to have enough to buy the following materials AS WELL AS petty/lesser soul gems).

    ***

    1) Proceed to buy all Iron Ingots, Iron Ores, and Leather (Leather is cheaper than Leather Strips as each Strip costs 5 gold, while Leather can be tanned into 4 Leather Strips and costs only 15 gold) from the 3 blacksmiths in Whiterun.

    2) Go to the weapon forge by the Warmaiden's house (one of the blacksmiths), and smelt all Iron Ores into Iron Ingots and tan all Leather into Leather Strips (leaving some Leather as well).

    3) Craft as many Iron Daggers as you can, with some extra Leather Bracers, to quickly pump up your Smithing.

    4) Carry the Iron Daggers to Dragonsreach, just on the top of Whiterun, while selling the Leather Bracers, and buy FILLED petty/lesser soul gems from Farengar, the court wizard (feel free to equip price-reducing equipment or invest in a Speech perk that makes prices better).

    5) On the Enchanter's Table in Dragonsreach, enchant as many Iron Daggers as you can with the "Turn Undead" enchantment, raising each dagger's value to 500+ gold, and with petty/lesser soul gems (feel free to experiment with every enchantment you have learnt to see their raised value, and choose the enchantment with the highest added value).

    6) Sell all enchanted Iron Daggers to the General Store in Whiterun, waiting 48 hours (by pressing Select) in between each trading session for his gold to refill. You will be making a profit with this.

    7) Repeat Steps 1 to 6, and you will be raising both Smithing and Enchanting very fast. Eventually, you will be able to smith Ebony/Daedric armor sets and raise your Enchanting high enough (with perks) to be able to enchant high magic resistance or any other useful stat boosters onto your armor and weapons (like fire damage).

    Please also refer to my other thread (which I will be forming soon, and linking here) for bugs and things to watch out for that can stop you from the platinum on your first Skyrim playthrough. =3
