When you die to a relevant enemy, you may get one of these tips[verification needed — exact conditions?]:

  • Take fire resistance enchantments, potions of Resist Fire, and a frost-imbued weapon into battle against Flame Atronachs.
  • Fire damage helps against Frost Atronachs, but high frost resistance, thanks to enchantments and Resist Frost potions, is essential.
  • Against Storm Atronachs, combine a bashing weapon with high shock resistance from enchantments and Resist Shock potions.
  • Use poison spells or a poison-enchanted weapon to take Bandits down quickly.
  • Combining shock damage with an Aversion to Shock poison will make short work of a Bear's high Health.
  • Come at Ancient Dragons with shock damage, Aversion to Shock poisons, and high fire and frost resistances.
  • Dragons are best fought with high fire resistance, frost enchantments and spells, and Aversion to Frost poisons.
  • Frost and poison resistance, as well as fire damage, are essential against Undead Dragons.
  • Whether Raider or Warlock, frost weapons and spells, and high fire resistance, are effective against all Dremora.
  • The Resist Elements spell is invaluable against Goblin casters, as is a weapon enchanted to damage Magicka.
  • Frost damage is doubly effective against shielded Goblin warriors, as it greatly damages both their Health and Stamina.
  • Inflict shock damage, enhanced by an Aversion to Shock poison, to quickly take down shieldless Goblin warriors.
  • Use frost enchantments and spells against Giant Spiders, and make sure your poison resistance is high.
  • Keep your shock and poison resistances high against Liches, and attack with a fire-enchanted weapon coated with Aversion to Fire poison.
  • Boost your poison resistance, and enchant a weapon to deal fire or Magicka damage, before taking on Nether Liches.
  • Mercenaries are especially vulnerable to poison damage, while Stamina damage and Vigor Poisons will limit their abilities.
  • Protect yourself from a Necromancer's spells with high frost resistance, then inflict poison damage.
  • Outcasts are weak to shock enchantments and spells, which will also drain their Magicka and limit their spellcasting.
  • Skeletons are quick to block, but vulnerable to shock spells, which are fast and hard to predict.
  • High poison resistance and a fire-enchanted weapon are essential when fighting Spriggans.
  • The magic that animates statues can be most easily disrupted with shock-imbued weapons and shock spells.
  • Against Thalmor, boost your fire and shock resistances with potions or the Resist Elements spell, then attack with poison damage.
  • Kill trolls as fast as possible with a fire-enchanted weapon and fire spells, combined with Aversion to Fire and Healing Poisons.
  • Restrict a Warmaster's abilities by dealing Stamina damage or use a poison-enchanted weapon to end the fight quickly.
  • Fire-enchanted axes are great against Wights, but always keep Absorb or a Dodging Strike ready to counter their Power Attacks.
  • Hit Wispmothers with as much fire damage as you can, and counter its frigid attacks with high frost resistance.
