What is the best way to level up the smithing skill?
I need to level up my smithing so I can make more stuff. AquaActor88 - 3 months ago
The fastest and most economical way would be to just pay for lessons and pickpocket the money back.
If you want to "manually" improve your Smithing, the fastest way is by crafting jewelry (requires Gold/Silver + gems).
If you need Silver/Gold, go to Halted Stream Camp or Angarvunde and find the Transmutation spell tome. It will allow you to turn Iron into Silver and Silver into Gold.
If you don't have enough gems, complete the quest No Stones Unturned, visit a couple of Norbic Tombs and you'll be puking gems.
To complete No Stones Unturned quickly, you need to SPAM the "A" button of the Stones of Baranziah that you will find around the world (the quest counter will count two/three gems, making the quest much easier).
If you also use the Slow Time shout, you should be able to complete the quest after finding about 7 gems.
Of course, the spam "technique" is useless for the first gem you find, since the quest won't start if you haven't found one yet. Sage5 (Expert) - 3 months ago
Create equipment, the more it's worth the better, and upgrade equipment. Also nails, hinges, locks and the other building parts. Or pay to learn from a mentor. darkdeity9 - 3 months ago
That's fine. Just keep in mind you should not level up the crafting skills too much at once. You should maybe get 1/5 perks there and concentrate on your main fighting skills.
For smithing, i just accumulate material and i just spend a good chunk of it. Go in mines and go hunt deers for pelts. If you plan to build the houses, save on iron and corundum so you can make building materials and train smithing at the same time. FactoidHunter (Expert) - 3 months ago
Easy way that works for me is smith leather bracers and arrows (assuming you have Dawnguard for the latter). Bracers level up smithing pretty quick and the hide is readily available by snuffing animals of all types. Once you hit 30 and have the Dwarven perk, farming Dwarven ruins is pretty quick and can net a low of smeltable scrap.
When I start a new game with the Dawnguard add on, doing the "Lost to the Ages" quest right from the start nets more than enough hide to bring smithing to 30 and enough scrap to bring it to 60. Doing the Dawnguard quest right after can bring it close to 90 (by smithing more bracers during travels and more arrows doing ruins)
Building houses also levels smithing nicely, as you would forge nails, fittings, hinges and locks constantly. Katsuro (Expert) - 3 months ago
