Hi Guys and Gals, I joined this forum because I thought that I should share this with people that could test this out, confirm, and distribute the information better. I haven't seen it posted anywhere yet so I thought that I would share here.
I also posted on that wikia site, but my writing is poor and rushed. I did this using the PC but it might work for PS3 and if someone would try it and no console cheats with in alchemy, but I think that you could do it with way less, since the created potions are so strong you could quickly level up have digipass 270 tried this yet.
Now create a restoration potion that will be stronger than the one before. Do not wait for the active effect timer to run out. Take off the apparels, drink the stronger restoration potion, and put the clothes back on. Create an even stronger restoration potion, remove the apparels, drink the potion, put the clothes back on.
Repeat until bored. When I tried to enchant fortify destruction on my daedric armor which after using the smithing potion has an armor of and value of using the fortify enchanting potion, the game crashed -- probably reached a too high of a value for the variable. This was my first post, so if someone who is a better contributer can try this exploit out and clean this up, that would be good.
Please post if you have tried this out and confirm it works or have any questions. Like x 1. Any thoughts, suggestions? Should I post this somewhere else? Like x 2.

Simple and easy to craft, there are several versions of this potion and they are all useful. In all likelihood, the most commonly used potion for every player are healing potions.
Not only do these potions heal you, but they fortify your health on top of that, making you even tougher. More effective than a standard magicka potion; although this concoction is a bit tougher to make, it hits you with three beneficial effects all at once. Another relatively simple potion; this potion is excellent for getting out of a tough spot. Surrounded by enemies and on low health?
Drink one of these and you can invisibly flee to safety all while your health regenerates ready for you to return to the fight.
This simple fortification potion improves the damage of any bows or crossbows you use. There are always times in Skyrim when you find yourself having to engage enemies at a distance and pulling out the bow you keep in your inventory just in case, even though your Archery skill is low. In such cases, try drinking one of these potions to make up for that low skill rank as much as possible. This single-effect potion is extremely useful for practically any build in Skyrim.
Normally, it means either a slow and tiresome trudge back out or having to leave things behind. Harder to come across than the ingredients for a Fortify Barter Potion, the ingredients for this concoction are certainly worth tracking down if you plan on crafting your own equipment. This potion is especially useful at low-to-mid levels when you are still training your Smithing skill; drink one of these, and you can get even better results from using Workbenches and Grindstones, as well as improving your Smithing overall.
Not only does it boost your Two-Handed skill, but it causes your Stamina to regenerate faster, letting you make more heavy attacks than usual.
This makes it one of the best Skyrim alchemy recipes for heavy close combat builds. Some mages and monsters in Skyrim can be particularly troublesome to deal with thanks to their powerful destruction spells. Hagravens, for example, are often capable of bombarding you with high-power fireballs and other blasts which can quickly eat through your health. This poison is ideal for such scenarios.With potions, Alchemy is a little different from how it worked in Oblivion.
In order to discover an ingredient's effect, you must first consume it by selecting it from your inventory menu. Doing so will reveal the first property of that ingredient. Once you have a stockpile of known uses for ingredientshead over to an Alchemy table to start mixing up your own potions.
When you interact with an alchemy table, there will be a list of possible Potions that you can create, based on the ingredients in your inventory. Selecting one of these will open the list of ingredients that you know will create the effect.
In order to make a potion, you must choose 2 ingredients and then you can opt to add in a third. Adding a third ingredient is the easiest way to start discovering the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th properties of ingredients.
As you create potions, a window will pop up if you discover new properties for an ingredient, which will increase the types of potions you can create. By experimenting and learning the different effects of ingredientsyou can start to layer properties into more complex potions and poisonswhich will increase both their monetary valueand their usefulness in the field.
In Morrowind, this "drug" would eventually get you addicted with side effects. In Oblivion, you would find drug dens containing Skooma addicts. So far in Skyrim there have been random encounters of people who sell Skooma. There are many recipe makers online which can show you all potion combinations. Last Edited: 4 Nov am.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Top 10 Inventory Items: Potions
It only takes a minute to sign up. The Fortify Enchanting potion says that it will work for 30 seconds. However, I only saw the benefit successful for one enchantment. I'm sure it didn't take me more than 30 seconds to do my first two enchantments. Since many of the ingredients for this potion are rare-ish, and I'm trying to do this enchanting with Grand soul gems, I didn't do any further testing just yet.
Could someone verify the actual duration of Fortify Enchanting? Does it actually last for 30 seconds? Is that game time, or real time? Can it be extended by actions that pause that timer?
Or, does it only really stay effective for the next enchantment? I have been able to do 2 enchantments with one potion but if you add in a renaming of the item, which I wanted to do, then you simply do not have enough time to really do more than one item. Just the length of time the UI takes to select all three pieces is about 15 seconds in and of itself.
My suggestion is to just always play it safe. If you have enough money on hand to be trying to super-enchant your items, then you should have no problem finding the ingredients at the various shop keepers. I make a loop through Whiterun, Solitude, Windhelm, Falkreath and Morsomethingorother I can never remember the name of this one!
Takes me a few moments, costs me maybe g each to clear out their inventories and I can always make the set of potions I need to do whatever crafting I am up to plus enough misc ingredients to more than make my money back if I do not want to get more gold via enchanting :. As for your final questions, 30 seconds has been fairly accurate to me. It is real time, as long as the game is not paused If you have your inventory open or the like it wont tick down the duration, if you are in the enchanting table though it does.
Honestly its the slowish interface. I believe they timed these potions specifically to get you a single guaranteed enchantment, and then maybe 1 more if you are just rushing it But since the price doesn't really go up at these levels its rather pointless to be rushing these :.
More Info: Here is probably one of the handiest websites relating to Skyrim for crafters. You can use this to get rid of all the extra ingredients and gather your money back on having to buy the more expensive items. And now a video: I enchant 5 daggers to give them level 26 banish instead of level Just watch the timer of the video, it is not bugged. Time remains in effect while at Enchanting, Alchemy, and Smithing equipment. During the "confirm" screens while crafting time pauses until you hit ok.
For thebringing up the renaming of the item also pauses the game, as with any other instance of pressing the guide button. I can do about 4 under 1 potion with renaming on the Double Enchantment perk. It is just a matter of knowing exactly what you are going for, and not having to fumble through a ton of gear to find the right stuff. Have an order in mind, and use the screen to take a breath and plan out the next item. After so many enchants, you know exactly what the list looks like, and can find the proper ones in 2 seconds.
If you watch the video above, the guy loses almost 10 seconds just scrolling inventory. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.
