Skyrim: Riverwood Trader level up cheat
We managed to enjoy a good four hours playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim today, and thanks to being graphics hungry our first impressions were of a little disappointment when it comes to how good the game looks, but being open minded we continued with optimism.
Choosing our race took a little longer than we thought, spending a good 15 minutes playing with the look of our character and trying to decide the race to be, which ended up being a Wood Elf.
Within the next 30 minutes the last thing on our mind was graphics, the story pulled us in and on the journey into the world of Skyrim we went. Now a few hours on we’re totally sold on the new Elder Scrolls game, and looking forward to exploring the Skyrim world and map.
The reason for this quick post was to highlight an issue we found in Skyrim at Riverwood, and specifically at the trader hut. While we hate the idea of cheats overall in games, especially when it ruins the online gameplay, we couldn’t help but repeat something a few times just to see if we’re right in thinking you can level up fast.
When we met the Riverwood trader it seemed fun to pull out our two-handed warhammer and beat the trader, and what we found is he would not die. So once he starts crouching, as you can see in the photo above that we took, he cannot be hurt. After a little while he will get back up and you can attack him again, only to find this process can be repeated over and over.
The good news is you still get your level up for weapons, and as such you can keep upgrading skills etc. This is a cheat, and now we know it’s possible should we carry on leveling up? What would you do?
Have you found any other cheats or glitches in Skyrim?
