Hey guys ^^
This is my first forum post, yaaaay!
Okay. I need help. What do I do?!
I finally got to the V+ areas and decided that since my smithing has reached lvl 50, it's about time I began working on a new skill. For some reason, unbeknownst to me, I picked Enchanting. What a mistake. I quickly realised I wasn't finding any runes suitable for my level in my new areas, so I took a trip back to the DC, and went hunting in Glenumbra, Stormhaven, Rivenspire etc. I gathered together a few runes I could actually use, and settled down to try and figure this thing out. When I made a glyph, I noticed I would get a good amount of XP the first time I used a new rune and translated it, but after that... pittance! So I took a new direction and went monster bashing to gather up some looted glyphs to extract.. admittedly doing this did give me a little more XP each time, but still nothing spectacular.
I spent the next 8 hours hunting out runes all throughout the DC, and collected quite a good amount, and decided to try trading crafted glyphs with another enchanter to extract, as that seemed to work well in smithing... Oh how wrong was I?! Even though this guy was kind enough to not only make me glyphs out of runes one level higher than I was, he also used Jejota, Denata, and Rekuta to make their quality better than plain base, I only got about a level out of roughly 20 glyphs.
So, I'm now a third of the way into level 14, and I have already translated all of the runes I can up to this level. How am I supposed to level this damn skill if nothing gives you a decent amount of XP?!
A friend of mine has levelled both Alchemy and Provisioning to 50 within about 3 days, because creating potions/ food gives such a large amount of XP, especially when making higher level products. Why is Enchanting giving me next to nothing for all my hard work? Am I missing something major? Is it another bug? I don't understand... *waaahhhh*
I'm getting to the point where I'm contemplating giving up on enchanting altogether and going into provisioning or alchemy instead because this is driving me crazy, but I don't want to give up on it until I've tried every possible route to levelling it!
Sorry for the epic post, that may have been more of a rant than a question
Thanks in advance!!
