Bolstering Via Enchantment
disenchant gear that already has the Fortify Alchemy enchantment in order to
learn such an enchanting skill and use it as you wish on headgear, necklaces,
rings, and gloves. You can find pre-enchanted gear randomly at shops or in the
wild, but if you wish to take chance out of the picture, accept the “Mourning
Never Comes” quest (given by Astrid of the Dark Brotherhood) and complete the
optional objective along with the rest of the quest to receive Muiri’s Ring.
You can also get the Ring of Pure Mixtures from the Forsaken Cave as part of a
quest given by Frida from Dawnstar, but if you give the ring to her, you’ll
have to steal it back or loot it from her corpse in order to disenchant it.

boost your Enchanting skill even more by drinking specific potions. This allows
you to further increase the Fortify Alchemy enchantments, though the
ingredients needed to make potions that increase your Enchanting skills may be
harder to obtain than those used in the above “Trusty Method,” and such potions

such numbers, and this is no easy task.

players, we also recommend enchanting a Falmer’s Helmet and a Circlet and
wearing both at the same time. This is an exploit. Falmers’ helmets can be
found in Mzinchaleft (pictured above), just southwest of Dawnstar, or on random
Falmer corpses. Doing this allows you to wear five pieces of enchanted apparel
at once as opposed to the usual limit of four.
