Smithing After the Patch

#1NeoCrimsonCloudPosted 6/15/2012 6:36:35 PM
What's the fastest way to level smithing now that the patch has nerfed iron daggers?

Hey look, the thousandth topic on this, and the hundredth person that doesn't know how to use a search bar. Jewelry. Jammymacster also has a guide for weapons.

Jewelery. You can get that transmutation book to turn your iron ore into silver/gold ore.

Transmute Iron Ore into Silver then Gold, make jewelry, throw in gems to make them more valuable, and hunt a lot- turning their hides into leather, then make leather bracers, still kinda slow but with warrior stone should be faster.

He may well be along at some point to patiently copy and paste the usual advice he does in these topics.

Won't work. Skyrim tracks which game version was active when you saved, and won't let you load that save if your current version is lower.

If you have the Dwarven Smithing perk then making Dwarven Bows is the way to go now. From Nchuand-Zel alone (the ruins under Markarth) you can get 391 Dwarven Metal Ingots worth of resources. Once you have them all acquire as many iron ingots as you can find and make Dwarven Bows. Improve each bow you make as well for more experience. Just from making Dwarven bows from these ingots will easily get you from 30-95+ with a well rested bonus and the warrior stone.

You are not going to be able to carry all the resources in Nchuand-Zel so take a follower and make them pick the items off of the ground or container. Making them take items from a container frequently gives the items the stolen tag but since you'll be smelting the items anyway it doesn't really matter. If you make your follower pick them off the ground drop them one at a time. If a follower picks up a group of them only one will be added to their inventory. This allows them to carry more items even when exceeding their carry limit.

Using a potion or wearing gear that fortifies smithing will further increase the value of items improved and thus increase the experience gained.

This page has more info on Dwarven Metal Ingots:

Also if you are buying resources to make items from then you should make Orcish Armour from the Orcish tier, Ebony Bows from the ebony tier and Daedric Warhammers from the deadric tier.

As mentioned you can also make jewellery. This is good for those players that want to level smithing to level-up but don't want to spend any perks in it. The Transmute spell is useful for this as you can convert iron ore to silver ore and then to gold ore. Using gems that you find will help even more.

Use the fortify Restoration technique to make an absurdly strong fortify smithing potion, then improve any item. Took my smithing from 20 to 100 by improving one iron dagger.
