Has anyone found a good way to raise the speech skill yet?

I've only found 1 convo with 1 persuade option that put 1 point. There has to be a way to cheese level it.

I think buying or selling stuff raises it, maybe..

So far all of my speech increases have come from trading with town merchants.

Trading is what raises speech, sell a lot and buy a lot, and your skill will increase.

Buying and selling stuff raises the speech skill. Also, successfully persuading or intimidating someone raises the skill too.

Dammit.

I've been yelling into my XBL headset for 3 hours hoping to gain some skill.

Well that explains it. I haven't sold a single thing yet. I loot it all and stash it all until my speech is high so I can sell them at a good price.

Still I'd think like every game ever there has to be a conversation somewhere with a persuade option that you can repeat to gain unlimited speech points. There's one in every game.

One of the best ways I've found so far with the added perk of leveling up a hard to level (but amazing) skill. If you're like me, you have a lot of gold (the vendor gold count is making gold a bit trivial this time around, and I like it) and you'll need it for this.

- Start pick pocketing, you will get caught.

- Bribe the guard with gold

- Rinse, repeat.

Bribing increases speech at a damn good amount and even failing at the pick pocket increases it. So, two birds, one stone AND you have the possibility of pick pocketing some awesome items. Fair warning though; this method only works for so long in every city. You'll have to change cities periodically, but after enough time the first city you did it in will reset and you can begin anew.

Another method would be to use the old "sell 40 things, one at a time". Pick your 40 things yourself.
