Hi all!
Nobody wants to enchant my weapons, rings, nothing!
For exemple: I go to Gabeldir in Balmora, I say her that I want to
enchant something, I select soul gem, I select something to enchant and
I have no effects to select :( 
What's the problem?
(I have not installed patch, perhaps i have to do?)
Tnx a lot

Do you know any spells?
You need to know the spells giving the effect you want from the item.

Ditto! Well, actually I visit Wolverine Hall and buy the regular Soul Trap,
then pop over to Ald'Ruhn and get Soul Snare (Soultrap 60s in 5' on target)
made. If you like enchanted doodads, being able to snag a soul *without*
getting gouged while doing so is a blessing.

Actually a nice little ring with about 5 - 25 fire damage and a 2 second
soul trap, at range, is a nice little toy to fill off lesser gems with.

On the other hand, getting gouged does kindof go along with the territory of
being a charismatic and nice but still rather struggling mercenary.....

Soulsnare is for sale in Ald'ruhn? And I think right now there is a special
on Sandstrider trips there.....

Once you know Soultrap (touch) you can enchant with it on target; you
don't have to know a separate on target spell.

one thing that can be said for doing your own potions
is that their efficiency
grows with practise and using first-grade equipment.

Well, I role-play my characters and in addition I don't use any trainers.
Also, I try to avoid the Alchemy skill as it makes leveling too fast.
No other skill rises as fast as Alchemy in my experience.

Too unpredictable (only 20% or so chance of working) and carrying around
lots of mushrooms is not good for Encumbrance.

I agree that Str and End is the most important stats early on, but
Morrowind is a role-playing game, so my characters will use whatever
skills they need.


> > Jump

"better" is relative. If you powerplay - yes. If not it depends on your
okaying style. And as I said MW is a role playing game, not a roll
playing game.

Why go all the what to a shrine when you can just activate an item???

> > Restore Health

Why waste time sleeping when you are not tired?

> > Restore Fatigue

Why waste time hanging around when you can just activate an item?
After all you need to use all th gold and soul gems you collect on
*something* so why not use it to Enchant items to make life easier?

Also depends on your Mysticism skill.

Which is why you need Telekinesis.

> lockpicks and probes needs no magicka

Sure, but what good are they if your Security skill is not good enough.

Yes, I used to like Alchemy, but now I think its too much work and its
also too unbalancing and makes you level too fast.
So I go for Echanting items instead. The Enchant skill rises much slower,
giving a better game experience. IMO.
