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?

speech craft cheat based in riften at the black briar meadery speak to ungrien ask about marven black briar to start with you will need to bribe him then after level 25 in speech craft you can persuade him all the way to level 100 in speech craft
im not sure if i really need cheats with this game. im about lvl 52 and at about 40 i changed the setting to master. maybe i shouldve started the game on master cause its just too easy. i have noticed that i can practice magic, weapons, and armor skills on my house carls and other npcs. i also noticed that i can sneak around towns and such and lvl that up. im a stormcloak and ulfric told me if i find any imperial camps i would know what to do. so i guessed the thing to do was storm them. didnt think that every camp had an indestructable commander thats so weak with a blow that i put my controller down in mid fight and had myself a bowl of cereal before deciding to run off and find another.
At the Helgen keep part, where you are supposed to open the chest and get the armor if you chose to follow Hadvar, you can instead grab the two swords hanging off the walls and start attacking him. He will also get up after you attack him, and he will never notice you while you are sneaking. He will also never attack you back. You can level up One Handed and sneak as such. Also, if you are a high elf, you can cast fury on him, and work on Illusion, light armor, and block (take the light helmet from the other chest), and also, if you use healing, you can get restoration. I have a level 18 guy after coming out of Helgen, but I do warn you, the Dragur Overlord you fight to get the dragonstone will have the Disarm Thuu'um, which is deadly if you do not have multiples of almost all your weapons and shields.
all the grey beards have this so if you beat all of them it works faster, I haven't tried this but hopefully it works
Find the lady that teaches pick pocketing, train 1 time, then pick her pockets to get the money back and repeat this process until you get bored. I gained 2 or 3 levels and got pick pocketing up to lvl 50something before I got bored of doing this. Just make sure you only train once before picking her pocket for the coin. If the coin amount is too high, you'll have a lot less chance of being successful.
This isn't a cheat I hit him with my wuuthrad axe and with one hit he died. He's the brother of the woman I married lol. So I guess if u are a higher level this doesnt work.
Boost illusion by finding the rally (i think? target wont run for 60 secs and health boosted by 30) spell - cast at companion over and over
To level up conjuration fast - get bound sword - go find some mudcrabs - find a rock that they cant reach u on - constantly cast bound sword and sheath - rinse and repeat - I got from level 25 to 100 in about 1hr 1/4 ish - also had mage gaurdian stone activated. Already had about 300 magic at this point too.
this did not work on my ps3 lol the guy died almost instantly and guards tried to arrest me... i ran of course who has time for the pokie
you can level up your light armour ,heavy armour,one handed,two handed,sneak,archery,block and restoration and destruction etc all with this guy
100 restoration - The easy way You'll come across a spell (equilibrium) that gives you 25 mana per 25 hp every 1 second. Wield equilibrium with a healing spell (fast healing is best). Start channeling equilibrium, and when you need too, heal with fast healing. You can do this while moving between quest locations, and such. Enjoy :)
The quickest way I found to level up is to buy all the iron ignots and leather/leather scraps you can and make looooooads of iron daggers and hide bracers. You level your smithing up really fast as well and can get 3-4 levels from a few 1000 gold.
also any magic (which ive not done yet) get the weakest spell in the set...... cast over and over and over ..... to up level ... also if there are sleep on the game when no 1 is about .... flick to hardest level .... 2handed single handed or bow ... hit sleep over and over...... to up level... more training on the way.................
level 21 :) and heavy armor 90 looooooooooool just put it on really easy let 2 or 3 morons attack you ................ few hours later massive boost :) same with light armor.... block aswell but gotta hold block.... and sneak like some 1 said go on the powl at dark of night in peoples houses being a goelm lol
Thats not a "cheat" thats an exploit. It has it's respective consequence and harms your characters standings with the law. Costing money by breaking the law as any assault on a towns person outside of your own fists will do. So quick to call something a "cheat", if you want to see a real one, the skeleton and deadra book cheat on youtube is a real cheat involving duplicating. Good day.
i found the same thing in the rift imperial camp...the leader wont die. long story short im all ready level 12 :)
If you help the elf Faendal in Riverwood you can ask to come along to help you. At thjis point you can trade items with him. He is also an archery Trainer. Train your archery, then trade items and take back the gold you just paid. I leveled archery to 50 in about 10 minutes for free
Go to the bee and barb inn in Riften and go into the basement. Crouch down and hover over somethnig that says ur going to steal it. One of the workers sprints downstairs just to stare at you. Stealth walk behind him and get your 15x dagger assassinations on him every time he gets up. Your stealth level goes up insanely fast.
this isnt necessarily a glitch but it pretty much power levels your skill, with smithing if you just keep making iron daggers, your skill is boosted tremendously, you can make them with only 1 iron ingot and 1 leather strip, overall i would say i spent about 10,000 gold on this boost, but hey, i got dragonplate armor with a armor rating of 418 and my dual wield legendary daedric war axes both have a attack rating of 59
This isn't a cheat, you're just practicing your two-handed weapons on a target that can't die. It's not like it levels you up ludicrously fast or anything, leveling to 100 like this would take almost as long as leveling it legit, by going adventuring and killing monsters etc. Nothing newsworthy here.
Found a glitch involving Windhelm Murder investigation once you go to the guy to sell the amulet for 500 gold if you have a decent amount of pick pocketing you can steal it back and sell it again infinitely just remember to save every now and then between pockets since there is the 10% chance to fail even when your maxxed out.
I just got Faendal from Riverwood to follow me. Then asked him to train my archery, then asked to see his inventory and took the gold I just paid. Then Repeat.
Same sneak cheat applies in Skyrim as did Oblivion. Use a rubberband on controller and go into sneak mode where there is an enemy near by who is in range but cannot see you. I set this up and come back in about two or so hours. Then you should be at level 100 for sneak. Sleep and you will level up about twenty times. Have fun!
HELP! I attacked the riverwood trader because of this glitch. I leveled up pretty quick until his sister came in and attacked me. I ran out the house and the whole town wanted to kill me lol. How do i stop them from attacking me? also I killed his sister ... :( i'm really sad i did that
The console commands from Fallout New Vegas work on this game as well. (ex. "player.forceav carryweight 3000" put into the console using ~ will raise your carry limit to 3000)
Isn't cheating in single player games kinda like cutting off your own genitalia? No one else knows or really cares. Why would you cut off your own genitalia?
I noticed if you get level 50 illusion You can shoot detruction spells at the jarl in dragonreach without having the guards attack you. Didnt try it enough to see if you can level up like that though.
you can do that in the beginning as well with the guy who you escape from prison with...also, if you hit the guy as he is getting back up from being crouched he will return to full health so u dont have to wait for him to heal.
The magic only applies if you do damage or actually damage. The only spell that works that you can chain cast to level is muffle.
Not possible unless you had some other cheat on. You can only train 5 times per level. Training 5 times will only increase your level about a quarter to a third of the way to the next level. How did you do the rest of the leveling up to get to new levels so you could train again? What ever it was it would have taken waaay longer than 10mins
You probably did the golden claw quest for him first? He might become killable after completing his quest and thats why he died on you?
you will have to pay off your bounty, when the guards come to attack you press square to sheath i think its called then either go to jail or pay them..
if people want to cheat in a single player game who r we to say that they r wrong? I say if you want to cheat go for it. its up to you if you want to spoil the game.
