I'm trying to see whether 2 effects while enchanting is useful or not - whether the power of the enchantment gets split between them or not?

So for instance, let's presume I'm enchanting something with 1 Grand Soul.

If I only enchant them with [Effect 1], I get [Effect 1 - 100%]

If I enchant two effects, do I get:
[Effect 1 - 100%] [Effect 2 - 100%]


[Effect 1 - 50%] [Effect 2 - 50%]

It does not get split. You can put Resist Fire 50% and Resist Shock 50% on your shield and boots. Now you're completely immune to two of the three elements.

I think you have to use two soul gems. Put one enchant on with one, and then go back and put the second enchant on with the other one.

I'm not sure, but if you're at the point in the game where you have access to this perk, just save your game, take the perk, and try it out. If it doesn't work as expected, reload to before you took the perk so it isn't wasted...

Can you put 2 of the same effects on

Okay, thanks. Next question: is it possible to enchant an item for a first effect before I have the Extra Effect perk, and then enchant it for a second effect?

You cannot put the same enchantments on an item.

Once an item has been enchanted, it CANNOT be enchanted again..

When you have the extra effect perk, you enchant both enchantments at the same time (using only one soul gem).

It's TOTALLY worth it.
