Chop wood.
Or wander over to Dawnstar and abuse the chest.

Alchemy. Clean out an Apothecary's ingredient stash, brew potions, sell them back to said Apothecary. You can't lose.
Hey there, sweetroll; I just cast Oakflesh... if you know what I mean.

Explore random dungeons/forts/caves/ruins etc. and kill everything in sight while looting each and every corpse/treasure chest u come across.

Then sell everything u don't need.

Bring a follower with u and have lots of free space in ur inventory so u can carry as much loot as possible.

Also, u can fast travel while overencumbered if u have a horse.

Make iron daggers. Enchant iron daggers. Sell enchanted iron daggers. Repeat.

Or buy/find/smelt as many dwarven ingots as you can and forge & improve dwarven bows.





Am I breaking a 'rule' here by giving the answer??

use crappy filled soul gems you find to enchant the random loot you find.

legit? , with cheating the hidden chest at dawnstar, solitude or markath

legit- enchanting pick ups (CoW radiant quest) is the fastest, cleanest and honest way but is the must boring ( still better that cutting woods or any other job really & you will swiming in gold in no time), you can also do the thieve guild radiant quest like bedlam jobs & heist

with skills - is all about alchemy , enchanting is also good but both require alot of attention & gathering resources

Buy Giants Toe, Creep Cluster, and Wheat, and brew a potion out of them.

Vampire Dust, Luna Moth Wing, and Hawk Feathers are also pretty good.
Look, for the last time: Kirby has explained it over and over!

Go to the skeleton on the altar near Azura's Shrine that continuously spawns the spell tome. Loot it repeatedly.
