A basic guide to some quick skill levels

In Riverwood there is a miniquest to help Faendal/Sven woo Camilla. Work the quest in Faendal's favour and he'll become a follower. Faendal is an archery trainer, but, because he is a follower, you can make him train you, then ask to trade items and take your money back.

Following this same principle of training and taking the money back, pretty much every trainer in the game can "train" you in at least 2 skills. Their skill, and your pickpocketing. Apart from the pickpocket trainer, she just "trains" you twice as fast.

Again now with followers, this time with a quest specific follower (for example, Farkas of the Companions.) I say quest specific because they need to be able to take a beating and not die.

With an unkillable follower you can train...

- One Handed Weapons
- Two Handed Weapons
- Destruction Magic
- Restoration
- Sneak
- Heavy Armour
- Light Armour
- Block
- Archery
- Illusion
- Pickpocket
- Alteration
- and last but not least Conjuration.

For Destruction/One/Two Handed you pretty much just need to repeatedly kill them.

With the Armours, Block and Restoration, you can just attack them until they fight back, then just take it and heal every now and then.

With Sneak, it's best to sneak attack them (either with One Handed or Bow is best). You just get more EXP for a successful sneak attack than from walking into a wall.

Illusion you'll need to get the courage spell and cast it repeatedly at them (can use any NPC for this cuz its not an offensive spell).

Conjuration you need to be in combat for to work with spells like Bound Sword/Axe/Bow, but you can also train by casting soul trap on a dead body (that might get patched soon though).

Alteration works in about the same way as Conjuration, so just cast oakflesh or a better varient on yourself constantly.

Speech has a glitch you can exploit in Riften, with the bartender in the Black Briar Meadery. Just talk to him and keep hitting the persuade option, though this may already be patched, I'm not sure.

For Alchemy, Enchanting and Smithing, we've not found a good, quick way to do it yet, although we do have a money making scheme using Alteration, Enchanting and Smithing. Get hold of the Transmute spell from the Halted Stream Camp (a little NorthNorthWest of Whiterun) and mine/buy iron ore and turn it into gold. Then smith it into gold rings and either sell them straight away or go on to enchant them 1st.

Be warned though.
Your level will increase pretty damned fast if you follow all this, and unless you make sure your combat skills are increased 1st or at least equally, you're gonna find yourself massively underpowered compared to your enemies.

And that's about it. Happy hunting.
