The highest smithing potion you can make improves smithing by 130%

Bingo!

+32% enchant potion and I think +130% smithing what exploit are you referring to?

I'm referring to the exploit to make really strong weapons/armor. I don't like heavy, but I'd like to get my armor rating up for it to be similar (since I'm using light armor). I'm playing on master and need that extra defense.

If your using the skills as they were intended to be used how is that an exploit?sure its crazy overpowered but your not exploiting anything.I don't even think making 100% reduction gear is an exploit.

That's technically true. I've seen people create like 1000+ damage weapons. If there's a cap on the potions, how is that done?

I seen stuff like that to and I really don't know how they do it.

+32% enchant potion and +130% smithing is the MAX, and will yield about 500~600 base damage for weapons. Anything more would really be cheating.

Still stupidly overpowered though

Also, to do this you need to first create +Alchemy enchants (4 piece, head, gloves, ring and amulet) and then you need to use that beefed up alchemy to create a better +Enchant potion, down that, make another set of 4 +Alchemy enchants and repeat until you can create +32% Enchant potions and +130% smithing

The 1000 damage weapons come from strong base weapons smithed really high and then every piece of armor you can enchant having "fortify weapon skill" on it.

I've only gotten a weapon to do like 250 damage, but I know I didn't try as hard as I could because that's plenty of damage.
