I have learned soul trap, my smithing is 60, my enchanting around 40 or 50 (I can do the soul syphon). Yet I go to the enchanting table and I do not get the option to put soul trap on a weapon. please let me know!

Thank you.

  • Do you have Soul Trap listed on your list of enchantments and cannot set it? Or, is it not listed under possible enchantments?

The only thing that determines your ability to lay a particular enchantment on a weapon is whether you have disenchanted a weapon with such an enchantment before. Find a weapon that has a soul trap enchantment and disenchant it.


You can't put a spell on a weapon like in Oblivion. You have to learn the relevant enchantment by using the table to disenchant an item that already has that property.
