Efficent Enchantment Skill-up

Should I just enchant everything I come across, no matter how weak it might be? I noticed recharging weapons/staffs helps too, but its kind of hard when I forget what I disenchanted. EDIT: What I mean by forgetting what I disenchanted, I bring all my crap after an adventure to the enchantment table and pretty much everything either can't be disenchanted or already has. It would be nice to have a list like spells known, while out adventuring so if I saw something, I would know I needed it.

The lack of a list of known enchantments is just one of skyrims many ui failures. I understand dumbing down an interface for the console people and their controllers, but that's no excuse for not providing a decent separate one for pc. –  Fambida Dec 17 '11 at 0:33

The easiest/cheapest/fastest way to level enchanting is to enchant IRON DAGGERS & HIDE BRACERS

  • Buy ALL the iron ingots & all leather & strips the smith has EACH time you visit after the 2 day rest/wait.
  • Make iron daggers & hide bracers.
    DAGGERS = 1 iron ingot & 1 leather strip.
    HIDE BRACERS = 2 leather strips & 1 leather.
  • Sell ALL bracers you make back to the smith but SAVE ALL IRON DAGGERS & drop them off at your enchanting table for later.
  • When you're ready at your enchanting table, select your daggers, then select, say, fire damage, then select it again for the highest amount of charges. The amount it shows is your maximum potential at your current levels/perks. (I use fire damage because they sell well.)
  • Select your soul gem, use from lowest to highest. There's no need to use anything higher than common. You DO NOT get more leveling credit for using higher gems like a black or grand. You get the same credit regardless.
  • Collect all the lowest level gems you can, bind souls to them, then rinse and repeat the above.

What is a hide bracer? What it has to do with enchanting? –  Phpdna Dec 17 '11 at 1:05
    
@ Master69Wraith - Thanks! That sounds like a great idea. Why not enchant the bracers though? –  Bryan Dec 17 '11 at 1:21
    
@ Jitamaro - Bracers are a piece of armor that covers your forearms, where as gauntlets are like gloves, but also protect your forearms. –  Bryan Dec 17 '11 at 1:23

Also the caps aren't necessary. –  victoriah Dec 17 '11 at 1:43

In fact this doesn't answer the question much, if at all. The problem with levelling enchanting is not finding things to enchant, it's having enough soul gems. –  victoriah Dec 17 '11 at 1:43
