    I think the glitch is something that the devs made up to boost enchanted stats and they left it that way on accident. (Not that we're complaining :D)
    Also remember that Alchemy is part of the Thief Skill Tree, so the Thief Stone + Well Rested bonuses will improve you Alchemy by 30% (Unless your a Werewolf or have the Lover's Stone).

    I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and ask... are there any suggestions as to how to obtain the ingredients for the Fortify Restoration (and other Fortify potions) quickly and/or easily? So far, the quickest way I've found is by simply purchasing all ingredients from an Apothecary and using the Save-Kill-Load trick to get them to restock and do it again. Is there perhaps a particular merchant that tends to carry a particularly large stock of ingredients?

    Thanks for the help, and thanks for this thread. I'm looking forward to overpowering my equipment with this. It's taking a long time, though.

    **EDIT** I thought I'd add in here that I finally was able to make the potions using the method described in this thread. I also wanted to add a tip that I don't think anybody else brought up (unless I just missed it).

    You don't really have to make a whole stock of overpowered restoration potions just to be able to make more powerful potions later. What I did was create a super strong enchantment potion, then used that to enchant a piece of jewelry with a super powerful Fortify Alchemy. So now whenever I want to create a really powerful potion, I just put that ring on. I don't have to hold onto a bunch of Fortify Restoration Potions. Plus, unlike the potions, the ring doesn't have a time limit, so I don't have to feel rushed when I'm making my potions.

    Anyway, I now have a virtually indestructible character.

    thats the best all around site i found for finding potion combinations out there. easiest way to get the ingredients for me was to head to a river or lake, near riften is good, and get longfin and spadetail. then i just bought the salt piles in apothecaries or inns.

    I'm having loads of trouble with these type of exploits. I'm on the latest PS3 version. When I do the fortify restoration exploit, my %'s never increase. My alchemy level is literally at the base level, so I'm assuming that you need something higher to get the results.

    Just need to find a way to increase my alchemy to a decent enough level.

    The way I got a decent stock pile of the long fin and other stuff was to go to the shop in Whiterun. Buy them, then use the fast forward option to FF 48hrs. The shop is then restocked.

    Just going through the process now of trying to level up my alchemy by using the buy skills and then buying all ingredients and making potions.

    My god it's long winded and tedious creating these potions. I'm still only at level 23 alchemy.

    Should I wait until I have max in enchantment to do this for the dual enchantment effect? Or can I go ahead and do this now with a single effect and then later do another enchantment on top of the armor I already enchanted? How exactly does that dual enchantment thing work, I guess is what I'm really asking.

    wow, this totally worked for me. I have to figure out what % is optimal to still make the game playable. I got my smithing gear to ~8000% upgrading and I upgraded my armor and weapons using it and they one shot everything. Way too OP. What is an optimal damage? Right now my stuff is around 400-500 depending on weapon. I would have thought that to be okay on Master setting but I'm not totally sure as I'm still only lvl 36 and probably haven't done even a quarter of all the quests available. Maybe as I level up the damage will sort of even up.

    hehe this is one of the exploits that made me quit playing i completely broke the game with an iron dagger dealing 998 damage 2147685 fire damage 2147685 ice damage. ;-; but i am back >:O and rping ;D btw the quickest way i found for this... is using the dawnstar exploit. listen to this.

    1. goto dawnstar go to the west side of town near the mine.
    2. crouch near a tree that has several rocks around it and point at last rock next to mine entrance. to left of it if ur looking straight at entrance.
    3. make sure the khajiit trader is at dawnstar.
    4. go talk to her and look at shop
    5. get out of shop and run back to chest.
    6. loot it all i did was getting soul gems and gold... decent armor though.
    7. run back to khajiit DO NOT TALK TO HER
    8. save game and kill her then load back up
    then repeatsteaps 4-8 for like my record is 16 filled grands 16 common 24 lesser 34 petty and 23 great in 10 mins.

    that method will sustain u each run is 750 gold and u can save in alch shop then kill just like u do the khajiit to make her restock ingredients. im sure people have already posted this but i just thought i would throw you my old play style. but this way u get better enchanted armor for basically free. and then you also get money for alchmey.... have fun.

    This doesn't seem to work for me, which makes me sad. I do the fortify one handed potions, and my damage goes up to 80 but after a while drops down to 68 again. Any ideas on how to fix this and keep damage permanent? (Xbox 360, unpatched skyrim)

    I am trying to do fortify restoration glitch but I don't have the recipe, do I need to eat the ingredients to learn it?

    So the point here is to wear FOUR
    --extreme alchemy-boost enchanted items (FIVE if you use a circlet with a Falmer Helmet, which is the (only?) way to double up on headgear), all at the same time, and drink the fortify restoration potions to amplify THOSE enchantments, which sends your alchemy results through the roof. Like, through the CLOUDS, and to Sovengard. If your ring does help a lot, multiply that by four, then by...I don't know, ten thousand! THEN make your fortify enchantment potions.

    OK BTW, the equipped items STAY boosted by the Fort Rest potions until you take them off, no matter how long you play, and this continues through saves and loads if you quit to sleep or something. It is maintained until you UNEQUIP the boosted item/s.

    Also the potions are stackable in that they amplify your restoration stats as they are at the time you drink, so if you have just drunk a 100% fort rest potion, then drink another, it will double your already doubled stat, which continues as long as you are drikning them overlapped. THE ONE BUT:
    they won't continue past 2 potions if they are all the same strength! I make stacks of different strengths and rotate through them to keep it amplifying from potion to potion as I drink them.

    I use the bow mainly (personal challenge since in Oblivion I was extremely archery-challenged) so I employ items with fort marksman to rip through a dragon if I'm not in the mood when one shows up. Sometimes the timing is just absolute CRAP.

    Alright, enjoy!

    What you have to do is make fort restoration potions, enchant items to boost alchemy, wear them, make STRONGER fort rest and enchant potions, and enchant even stronger items, and so on. It will level up your alchemy and enchanting, and prep you to enchant a massive fortify one handed item (or four) and then when you put them on, drink a fortify restoration potion or twelve then re-equip your items right after consuming to apply a mind-blowing boost that will work as long as your superman enchanted item is equipped, through saves and loads as i said. There's a lot of discussion about the exact details if I wasn't specific enough for your liking so you can just search it a little more until you got it down :)

    Awesome,
    I didn't go TOO overboard but I got 1 necklace with 900% Bow DMG and 900% Sneak
    A ring with 554% Alteration and 554% Illusion :p
    I also got a clean bow as well because I used a bow that I improved and it was reaaally overpowered.

    read this. no weight limit ever. When I started my new Pure mage High Elf, I didn't even buy a whiterun house because of this trick. I just carried my stuff around with Lydia being my pack mule. If I didn't want her to die and risk losing all my stuff, I just gave the command "Wait Here" in Whiterun.

    This glitch isn't working for, even playing the game unpatched. So, if someone might tell me what I'm doing wrong, I'd be eternally grateful.

    I've done the Oghma Infinium glitch, so my Alchemy is at 100, plus all of the perks. I've got an Alchemy gear set, four pieces between 21-29%.

    I've been putting the gear on, creating the Restoration potion.
    Quit the Alchemy Lab, enter the menu & take the potion.
    Remove the gear, reapply the gear.
    Exit the menu, re-enter the Alchemy Lab & start the process over.

    My potions are topping out at 95% for 60 seconds. My gear is only getting up between 35-46%.

    Any suggestions?

    EDIT: I'm playing on a PS3.

    Take off your alchemy gear before you drink your fortify restoration potion. After you drink it, then put the gear back on.
