Making Iron daggers, with them you can also train enchanting and make nice amounts of money.

At first, find an iron mine and/or hunt deer. At low levels, you're not exactly going to be raking in the cash. Churn out leather gauntlets and iron daggers. Steal the silver bars from the castle in Whiterun and the bank in Markarth every time they respawn. Make silver / gemmed silver rings for profit.

Start working on your enchanting at the same time. Buy petty soul gems whenever you come across them. Trap as many vermin souls as you can for enchanting. Disenchant every new enchantment type you come across. Your goal here is to get the +skill enchantment bonus in the middle branch of the enchantment tree. You are also going to need the +smithing skill disenchanted and in your available skill types.

Start moving up the right-hand side of the smithing tree, first. Basically, the skill you really need is Dwarven Smithing.

Once you have the skill enchantment and dwarven smithing, buy four Grand Soul gems. Fill them if they don't come pre-filled.

Enchant one of each: ring, body, gloves, necklace with +smithing and a grand soul gem.

If you haven't already, go to the ruins or museum in Markarth and steal every "dwemer plate" that isn't nailed down and take it to the smelter.

Put on your +smithing gear. Start making dwarven gloves or daggers. When you have a sizable stack of them, take them to the workbench to improve them. You should be able to double their value. If you're in Whiterun, you have five different vendors you can sell these to for a sizable profit. Use the proceeds from your sales to buy more iron and leather. If you run out of dwarven junk, go to Markarth and raid the museum again.

Enchant as funds and souls allow.

This game is soo broken, I'm literally ripping my hair off trying to fix this damn game.
I first fixed my Crash to desktop at menu by doing the sound fix. Played the game for a few minutes and I get the dreaded black screen when switching to maps. Fixed that by disabling crossfire. Played a few hours and then I get the stupid purple and missing textures. Updated my drivers and played another hour. I then get the no-warning random crash to desktop. I fixed that by downloading the Large Address Aware by allocating more than 2GB Ram for the games. Now, I can't start the game. I fixed that by verifying the integrity of game cache. I was able to start the game and then it crashed to desktop at main menu. I'm back to square one. confused.gifmad.gif

Agreed... I'm getting a bunch load of texture problems, transparency in particular. Oh well, going to update my drivers.

I never got into any of these "big" RPG's. Absolutely HATED Fallout.

Here's a good way of finding out whether you'll like Skyrim or not. It's Borderlands + Mount and Blade. That's exactly how it feels.
