    Hey all, I figure you'd probably read the topic title and groan in that everybody and their mother has covered at least one skill in the game, but I'd like to try and set myself apart from the rest.

    Recently, a friend and I started a gaming channel together, and have been trying to find videos to do that would really help people see our channel and help us get some kind of recognition for doing what we enjoy, and as such, I figured a display of desire to make videos would be to upload a skill guide for every skill in the game. Not only that, but also help any viewers out with hints, tips, and guides as to what they may be able to do at the higher levels. For example, all of the Magic skills have a guide consisting of various methods of training, followed by a guide on the Ritual Spell Quest, and then followed by a very quick, snappy overview of what the Master spells do.

    I've almost finished recording them all, and I still have to upload most of them - two are uploaded at time of writing, one is uploading, but I assure you that all of them will be up here soon.

    I'd really appreciate it if you were to watch the videos and even if you don't like it I'd really appreciate any feedback you might have to help me improve, thanks very much for taking the time to read this - links to the videos are below.

    I would just like to point out that all of these are meant to be done without containing any form of exploit/glitch, albeit I guess the Lockpick-obtaining is on the dodgy side...

    Magic:

    Alteration - to be recorded

    Conjuration - to be recorded

    Destruction - to be recorded

    Enchanting - to be uploaded

    Illusion - to be uploaded

    Restoration -

    Combat:

    Archery - to be recorded

    Block - to be uploaded

    Heavy Armour - to be uploaded

    One-handed - to be recorded

    Smithing -

    Two-handed - to be recorded

    Stealth:

    Alchemy -

    Light Armour - to be uploaded

    Lockpicking -

    Pickpocket -

    Sneak -

    Speech -

    Thanks for taking the time to read the post, I'll keep this updated with links and statuses as they come. Please share this around because I've been working pretty hard to get all of this done and would really appreciate any feedback that you may have to help me make better videos in the future. Thanks all!

    Well, it would appear somebody's lovingly gone and disliked all of my videos because they've nothing better to do in their time, so I'd really appreciate it if somebody would give some positive feedback and some likes, because it's totally unfair that my videos have crappy ratios because of one sad person and a currently low view count. I'd really appreciate it guys, thanks

    I'll be awaiting your smithing one ;) Looks like you've compiled a good list though! I find reading a massive block of words telling you how to do something so mind numbing, so much easier to sit and listen ^^

    Thanks! It means a lot - the view count's going up crazy fast. I'll edit the post when I get home - sitting on a train right now, so really can't :L

    Actually your Smithing video is now incorrect because the 1.5 patch stops the power levelling that you were showing.

    Oh really? The experience still seemed fine to me, and it was only recorded very recently, it worked fine on both PC and Xbox - that's odd. Regardless, the Ebony Ore location is still rather useful, I suppose I could find another way of doing it - thanks for notifying me though.

    I only play on the Xbox & since the 1.5 Patch was released the only way a person could power level with the Smithing Glitch was too removed the patches. The game has been out for 6 months now & there are hundreds of video guides already out there, you are flogging a dead horse.

    Perhaps I am, but it's content, the channel's new - and there are some views coming in. It would appear Smithing has been updated so that experience is directly proportional to the value of the item, perhaps there's something in that - I don't know. Humour me with some suggestions as to what could be uploaded and still be new/fresh/interesting in your view?

    Furthermore; does anybody have any ideas as to guides/content relating to Skyrim they would like to see? I understand the appeal of videos over text, and just really want to make something people find useful, I'm currently really into playing the Nightblade archetype, but I'm not sure whether: A - a video guide on playing Nightblade is necessary, and B - whether it would even work at all. I'd really like this topic to be about both the guides above and suggestions for the future, because I could really use some.

    I tried the Speech thing a few days ago and as far as I'm aware this no longer works on Xbox360 :sadface:

    I've tried it on an Xbox360 where it's worked before so no, it doesn't.

    Your Speech level has to be at 25 for it to work & it still works on the Xbox 360.

    I did say in the video - use the 'Bribe' option to get to 25 and the rest is plain sailing - could somebody please help me out by telling me something they'd like to see..?
