In TESO, I have this technique to improve my blacksmithing rather fast:
- find an closed door armory and get inside
- steal all the weapons
- log-out then log-back in
- repeat steps 2 and 3 until your inventory is full
- deconstruct everything and gain 1-2 levels of blacksmithing.
For blacksmithing, for instance, I found the Red Squall Armory in Wayrest.
Are there other closed-doors locations like that where you can steal in large batches
- light/medium armor?
Note: the closed-door part is really important as if you mess up and get caught, you can continue your stealing without having the guards harassing you.
