I've been playing skyrim and have retired.
When I played I was sure I made enchanting legendary several time.
That's because I have this super fortify enchanting potions I created with restoration glitches.
Then my daughter told me those potions, while increasing tons of stats, actually do not increase enchanting skills at all.
I look up some sources and I read this
Since Enchanting skill gains are based only on the number of items enchanted, or soul gems used to recharge depleted items, leveling Enchanting is no different the second time to the first. Even potions of Fortify Enchant don't affect the skill gains. Stocking up on filled soul gems and items to enchant, is what you need.
So, it seems enchanting is not like smithing. You can't make an item worth 1 million septims and increase enchanting from 15 to 100 in no time.
Am I correct? Am I missing something?
Also does enchanting an item with petty soul gems increase enchanting as much as enchanting items with grand soul gems?
Or is it just the number of "enchants" and "items" you do.
I am still pretty sured I increased enchanting easily before. I just couldn't figure out how.
