The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim: Train Your Skills for Free
In The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim, you can train for free. Save your money for more important stuff. But how do you go about getting free training?
One way you can get trained for free is to use pickpocketing. You can use potions or other magical items to increase this skill. Basically what you will do is to pick the pocket of your trainer to get back your free.
Go to an area where you can find trainers sleeping in their beds. For fighter skills, you may go to The Companions building in Whiterun. For mage kills, you can go to the College of Winterhold and for thief skills, you can visit Riften. Talk to your target trainer at night. When the trainer goes back to bed, steal the money back. Make sure that you steal the money back after every skill raise. Your possibility of success will decrease as the trainer earns more gold. By using this tactic, you will raise your chosen skill and also raise quickly your pickpocket skill.
Another way in which you can get trained for free is to receive free training form a follower. Ask a trainer to follow you. This way you can get all the training you need and not have to pay a single coin. Well, you do pay first but you have access to your follower’s/trainer’s inventory so you can get your gold back. Followers such as Aela, Athis, Vilkas, Njada, Faendal and Farkas will help you improve your skill and character levels completely for free.
You can earn several levels if you keep on training the maximum (5/5) skill ups even after you have already reached another level. When you do level up, you are free to retrain the 5/5.
