This trick requires some time to set up, but once it is done, you can get as much
gold as desired. It requires the following:
1. Fortify Alchemy Enchantment
2. Helmet, gloves/bracers, two rings, and a necklace
3. Five Grand Soul Gems filled with Grand Souls. Grand Souls can be taken from
Mammoths or bought.
4. The ingredients for Fortify Restoration potions: Abecean Longfins, Cyrodilic
Spadetails, and Salt Piles. The fish can be obtained easily by swimming around
Goldenglow Estate near Riften. Collect as many of these as you can, at least ten to
fifteen of each ingredient.
5. Ingredients for a Fortify Enchanting potion: Snowberries, Spriggan Sap, Hagraven
Claw, and Blue Butterfly Wing.
Start by enchanting your helmet, gloves, one of the rings, and the necklace with
Fortify Alchemy using the Grand Soul Gems. It works best if your Enchanting is at 100
with five perks in Enchanter. Equip the newly fortified equipment. Go to an alchemy
lab, and create a potion of Fortify Restoration. Exit and drink the potion. Without
exiting the menu, go to “Apparel”, unequip, and re-equip the gear. Then, create
another Fortify Restoration potion. Drink it, unequip, and re-equip the gear until
you can craft very strong Fortify Restorations (in the millions of percent). If you
go too high, the potions will start getting negative numbers. Do not drink those or
the game will glitch. When you are satisfied with the strength of your potions, drink
one, then craft a Fortify Enchanting potion. Go to an Arcane Enchanter, drink your
Fortify Enchanting potion, and enchant the remaining ring with Fortify Alchemy. This
negates the need to repeat this process. Then, go to any apothecary, and buy a Giants
Toe and some Wheat. While wearing your ring, craft a potion using these two
ingredients. You should get a massive increase in Alchemy. It will be worth hundreds
of thousands of Septim. No merchant will have that much money, but sell it to them
for whatever they can pay, and your Speech will rise to 100. If it does not raise
your Speech skill to 100, make another potion, and repeat. After your Speech is
leveled, add perks until you get to the “Invest” perk. Go to the Riverwood trader,
and invest in him. Go outside, and wait 48 hours. Return, and he will have 10,000
Septim. Sell him a potion to get all his gold. Go outside, and wait another 48 hours.
Return, and sell him a potion to get all his gold. Repeat this as many times as
desired. It is possible to get over 100,000 Septim in ten minutes in exchange for the
cost of making the potions.
