I'm playing a destruction mage in Skyrim and I'm really close to max out on enchanting, alchemy and destruction.
I have completely neglected the smithing perks, because I'm only wearing clothes and apparently there's no smithing perks needed to craft jewelry which I need for enchanting.
So what I basically use are gold and silver ingots, but what about the rest? There are so many other types of ingots and ores around and I began to wonder if I can simply stop picking these up? Also: I usually turn all ores into ingots whenever I'm at a smelter. Or do ores have another use except being turned into ingots?
