- You can effortlessly train Athletics by toggling on Autowalk while facing a wall. This will passively increase Athletics skill without your character accidentally walking into trouble. A more effective way to do this is to swim towards a wall; a well-suited place for this is the river running through Balmora. A third way is to enchant a ring (expensive is suitable) with constant water walking, and then run on the water away from Vvardenfell. There would seem to be no enemies that far out. Just make certain you can teleport back.
