Purpose of Page[edit]

what is the point of this page?

this game is insanely easy and every skill has at least one 'leveling strategy' plus there's already a page that has 'leveling' explicitly — Unsigned comment by Themendios (talkcontribs)

I created this as, along with the In-Depth Guides page, to solve red links, and because guides can still be created on efficient leveling and under-leveling despite the relative ease of leveling itself in Skyrim. See here; it's supposed to be an umbrella page linking to other relevant pages. Except few exist at the moment, which is why it's still a stub. Minor Edits 06:10, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Efficient Leveling[edit]

can someone create a page "Skyrim:Efficient Leveling" please? I know, on each skill article there are some hints/notes/bugs/glitches mentioned how to improve this specific skill. but: i think an extra page summoning things up is always a good idea and more important, im thinking of a different guide (without bugs/glitches) like:

Automatic skills: speech, lockpicking (pick every lock you ran across, make sure you have always enough lockpicks), ...
Easy skills: smithing, alchemy, enchanting, ...
Hard skills (use them right from the start at every possibility): alteration, ...

An enumeration of different approaches/tactics to get each skill to level 100 without using bugs or glitches. With different recommendations for perks, like: minimal, recommended, early-game, end-game, .... Like Oblivion:Efficient_Leveling --Psychomc 00:22, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

The Oblivion page covers leveling in a way that's not needed in Skyrim, since in Oblivion it would be possible to really cripple yourself without meaning to (as my casual gaming friends were wont to complain about). For Skyrim, after X levels, you will have had (X-1) chances to increase your health/magicka/stamina, and with no other attributes to muck up it's not really comparable. Something saying "you should get X perk at Y level" seems awfully subjective, as would mention of which skills are hard/easy to train. It really depends on how you play, with perhaps a few exceptions.Vardis 03:35, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Is this page still relevant?[edit]

This page was created over half a year ago, and it still provides nothing beyond a link to the Leveling page for users looking to optimize. Do we need this? If so, how can we make it better? --Somercy 23:04, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

I never knew we had this page... I think the Leveling page provides all the information necessary and that this page isn't needed. I don't think it's used much, either, considering the edits to the Leveling page. Vely►t►e 23:13, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
I agree. Once the note on "bad leveling" is incorperated into the linked page, this page has no purpose. The Silencer speaksTalk 23:44, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
Done. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 01:27 on 12 December 2012
