What's the best enchantments to put on your equipment for any type of build?

Depends on your playstyle and character, it would be worthless to put a fortify magicka on your character if you don't even use magic.

Fortify Armortypethatyouwear, Fortify Weapontypethatyouuse are the key ones. Having some fortify magic resist/stam regen/carry weight for other slots is also nice.

Well it sort of depends. If you want raw damage, then the elemental enchantments are great for extra oomph, but if you want survivability then absorb health or paralyze or something is great. For less killing and more avoidance, fear, banish and other repelling ones are useful.

You can put on enchantments that boost your weapon damage by 40% with maxed enchanting. These can go on up to 4 slots, so that's 160% bonus weapon damage. Very useful.

If you're going weapons. Use the soul Steal (Bound I think) enchantment and another enchantment in tandem with Azura's Star.

When will people realize that there is no such thing as "best" in this game?

Maybe I just worded it wrong, but I'm asking for opinions. Not the absolute end all and be all, alpha and omega proven fact of what is the best. I just want an idea of what type of enchantments I'm gonna want to use.

It kind of depends on if you're talking about armor or weapon enchantments.

I would say for weapons the elemental perks along with 5 in enchanter and twinsouls would get you the most damage. I would suggest Shock damage with Absorb Stamina because you're crippling mages and warriors while doing a lot of damage. Generally absorb enchantments are strong except when you're faced against a hardcore opponent where you can't absorb fast enough so don't jut get spammy with absorb health.

Then you should think about going for equipment enchants so 5 in enchanter and grab skill and stat perks then twin souls. Here optimal enchantments are more personal bias. Grab whatever you think will help.

An interesting enchantment is to put 25% cost reduction for whatever school of magic on 4 different pieces of equipment. You end up with 100% cost reduction for that school.

Also don't forget about making smithing and alchemy enchantments.
