Want to know how to beef up your hero in Skyrim quickly and easily?
David Hodgson, author of the 1,000+ page official Skyrim Legendary Game Guide, shares his tips with the Raptr community.

We asked Hodgson in the Q&A session: “What’s the easiest/fastest way to make your Skyrim character uber?”
He replied: “Focus on one or two ways to defeat foes. Up your Alchemy, Enchanting, and Smithing and craft for your combat skills. Repeat until uber.”
So there we have it. Try not to be a jack of all trades in terms of combat, just stick to magic or swords for example and focus all your efforts on those talents. If you need some tips when it comes to alchemy, check out our Skyrim Alchemy guide.
Hodgson – who has spent 2,000 hours playing Skyrim – also revealed other tips to gamers. Here are a selection of his insights:
“I topped out Archery, Stealth, Light Armor most of the time, before moving on to Enchanting, Alchemy, and Smithing. I actually spent most of my time as a Nord archer.
“Focus on a particular archetype and don’t be afraid to simply wander the world and try new elements out, like alchemy. Enchanting and Smithing your weapons, along with a single combat skill creates the most formidable of adventurers.
“If you grind enough, you can make items that slay with one hit.
“[My top three perks are] Green Thumb for when I’m collecting rare ingredients. Extra Effect when Enchanting, for obvious reasons. Backstab or Deadly Aim if I positively MUST drop a foe without raising the alarm.
“[I used] Double archers. Ghorbash takes the left flank, and I take the right. Goodbye, Bandits. Or [I use follower] Stenvar the “corpse creator” — he pummels the foes, and I enthrall them.
“A finely-crafted bow with just the right amount of poison on the arrow tip [is effective]. I could sneak through dungeons and slay at range, and bow bash if foes came too close. Sneak attack damage was nice too.”
“Bethesda is one of those companies that like their guides “complete”. So I had full knowledge of Easter Eggs. Well, aside from the one that nobody’s found yet. You have to [REDACTED]”
