|The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Cheats and Hints!|
Hints: Glitch: Walk through wall:
In Imperial City waterfront, you can walk through a wall and run down it from one side to another. You
can see out, but no one can see in.
Hints: Glitch: Berserk skulls:
At the beginning of the game you must make your way through a series of caves. Toward the end of those
caves [just before you get outside], there will be some ropes hanging from the ceiling with four
skulls attached to them. Shoot the far top and far right skull with your bow. This should make that
line of skulls go berserk.
Hints: Keeping Boots of Springheel Jack.:
During the last mission for the thieves guild, right before taking the drop, stop and head back down
the tower the way you came. When you get to the original way you got into the tower [the fireplace
in the Imperial Guardsmans sleeping quarters], activate the fireplace. It should give you the next
part of the quest without dropping you into the hole. On this level of the tower, without going
any higher, find an Imperial Guardsman and attack him, or be spotted by him. This should trigger the
regular 'Go to Jail, Resist Arrest, Pay Fines' dialog. Just pay your fines, and get teleported
back out of the tower and in front of the castle. Both the Elder Scroll and the Boots should be in
your inventory, and you should still be on the next part of the quest to head back to Gray Cowl.
In my opinion, it's easier than trying to survive the fall.
Hints: Glitch: Unlimited lockpicks:
Note: This will work in the patched version of the game. This trick requires any weapon of your choice
[for example, an Iron War Axe]. Select and equip your weapon. Duck swing, but before the attack
animation is over, enter your inventory and select any type of arrows [no more than 200]. Then, drop
the item of choice. Note that some items cannot be duplicated.
Hints: Glitch: Unlimited gold:
Go to the Talos Plaza District of the Imperial City. Find a house owned by a men named Dorian [Dorian's
House] in the southeast section of the district. Break into his house and find him. When he tells
you to leave, kill him. To loot him, do not hit X to take all. Instead, take each item individually,
finishing with the gold, which will not run out once it hits 8 pieces. Just keep selecting
the gold he is carrying and keep hiting A as usual. Do this repeatedly, and the number of gold
pieces remaining will freeze when it gets down to 8 gold pieces. It will not go any lower, but
will just keep giving you as much gold as desired. Note: After you break in and he tells you to get
out, talk to him. Go to 'Persuade' and bribe him a lot. After that, kill him. He will now have
more money to loot, which makes it easier to get more faster. Note: To get unlimited gold from Dorian
easier, use the following trick. First, bribe him until you cannot do so anymore. Then, hit him
with your weakest weapon. preferably your fists. Then, quickly hold block and talk to yield to him.
Because he is your friend, he will stop fighting. Then, talk to him again. His relationship will
have dropped because you hit him, allowing you to bribe him more. Make sure you do not hit him
too much or he will run away. Once his health gets low, the guards will probably charge you. After
spending your time or paying them, go back to his house. Notice that his health is still low from
your attacks. Wait exactly 24 hours and his health will be reset. repeat the entire process to get
the desired amount of gold. Once you select the money from his pocket it will not go away, leaving
you with unlimited money.
Visit the Talos Plaza in the Imperial District and find Dorian in his house. Talk to him and select the
Speechcraft icon to learn that he likes-boast and coerce and dislikes-admire and joke. Instead
of making him like you, make him hate you. Bribe him until around 60, then make him hate you. Keep
repeating this as long as your patience lasts. Note: The more you do this, the quicker it will be
to increase your money. Kill him but do not let him run, etc. or he will contact the guards. Search
him and take all his possessions except for his money. Exit the search screen and re-enter it.
Then, keep hiting A on his money. You will be allowed to retake it without it disappearing.
Go to Imperial City Talos Plaza. To the left of the Septim Hotel is a house belonging to Dorian. Go inside.
He will probably be to the right of the staircase. Walk up to him, and bribe him as much as
you can, giving him as much gold as possible. Then, kill him. Be careful, because he will run when
close to death. Once he is dead, pick up each item individually by hiting A. Make sure to pick
up his gold last. When you do, keep hiting A on it and you should get plenty of gold.
This trick allows you to earn free money extremely fast. Go to Kvatch where all the citizens are. While
on horseback, talk to the female Orc and sell her your equipped sword. The message 'You cannot
unequip this item' will appear, but it will still give you the money. You can do this as many times
as desired for 200 gp each time. This only works with your sword, and any other items will be sold
After becoming a vampire in the Dark Brotherhood quest line, proceed to complete the 'Cure For Vampirism'
quest. After giving the Counts' wife the potion, he will want to wait a day before he will talk
to you again. After that day, when you talk to him he will reward you with 500 gold. However, you
can keep talking to him and select 'Reward' each time. You will be given 500 gold each time you
talk to him, even if you leave and come back. However, when you do go back make sure you select his
room lock and bribe him fully so that the guards do not get called.
After you have completed the vampire quest, talk to Count Hassildor of Skingrad. When it is time to ask
for your reward, he will give you a hefty 10,000 gp. If you continue to ask the Count for the reward,
he will continue to give you your reward. Repeat this many times as desired. Note: You must
have a horse and an expensive weapon, the more expensive the better. Get on your horse and fast travel
to Kavcth. Once there, equip your most expensive weapon and get on your horse. Travel until
you find a little camp on the road to Kavtch. Talk to the Orc merchant while on your horse. Barter
with her and go to where you can sell items to her. Once there, you can sell your most expensive
weapon and keep selling it repeatedly. It will never disappear, and you can get as much money as desired.
When you become a vampire, seek the Mages Guild help in the Arcane University. You are sent to Skingard
to talk to the count. The count tells you who to seek out in order to get the cure. Complete this
mission and the count will tell you to return in a day The cure is for his wife. She dies after
she takes it. After a day he gives you a reward. In the conversation window that appears, select
the reward Tab once it goes black, indicating that you have used it. Rapidly tap A repeatedly and
he will keep giving you gold. Note: you must complete this task before the mage's second or third
task because after that the Count of Skingard will not talk to you.
A woman will approach you in the Imperial City and ask you to see a man. Go to this house. He will tell
you that he and his group are vampire hunters. Follow the the Virtuous Order quest line. You will
find out the man you are hunting is not a vampire. Do not kill him. Talk to him and he will say
that the man that sent you is actually the vampire. Go to the bookstore. The man will tell you about
a cave. Travel there and wipe out all the vampires. Take their vampire dust. Once you have killed
the main vampire, return to the Imperial City. You will be rewarded with a ring, but he also tells
you that the order will compensate you for every vampire that you kill. All you need for proof
is vampire dust. Use the 'Duplicate items' glitch on the vampire dust to get as many as desired.
Keep talking to the man about vampires and he will keep rewarding you as long as you have enough
vampire dust. This results in 250 gold for each vampire dust you have.
Use the 'Duplicate items' glitch inside a store. Make sure that the item you duplicate is worth alot.
Sell all but one of the item that was duplicated then repeat the process as many times as desired.
It is possible to make up to 50,000 gold in a few minutes.
This trick requires a Black Bow, a Bow, and two different kinds of Bows [for example Steel and Iron].
Also the 'Knight of the White Stallion' must have been successfully completed by talking to the male
in the castle of Leyawijn]. After completing the 'Knight of the White Stallion' mission, you can
sell your Black Bow to the male in the castle of Leyawijn. He is one of the court. Every bow will
give you 100 gold. Save your game because if you hit the male by accident the guards will be all
over you. Stand next to the male so that you can speak with him. Use the 'Duplicate items' glitch
to duplicate your bow next to the male [when he is sitting in his throne]. Pick up every bow that
you have [the more arrows the more bows]. When he says that you are over numbered you can continue
picking up more bows. After picking up every bow, throw one on the ground [to make sure you do
not sell all of your bows]. Speak with the male and sell your bows. When you choose one time for yes,
you can continue by hiting A. It is possible to sell 125 bows for 12,500 gold in five minutes.
The more arrows you use to duplicate, the more bows will drop. Note: Do not use too many or the
game will freeze.
Buy a horse from anyone at Cyrodils Stables. The stables are located outside of any town. The marker
looks like a cup. When you buy a horse, fast travel to the city of Kvatch and not to the Oblivion
gate to the marker below that. Get off your horse and equip your most valuable weapon. Then, get back
on the horse. Ride the horse and look to your left until you see an Orc with little black curls.
Talk to her. Go to 'Sell Items'. She should have 200 gold, depending on your Mercantile. If your
Mercantile is high, she will have 700 gold. Sell your equipped weapon repeatedly to get 700 gold
each time. You gain up to 5,000 gold in five minutes.
Hints: Good weapon:
Fill a Black Soul Gem with a Human Soul. Take a weapon that is not already enchanted and give it shock
damage, fire damage, or frost damage. Then, give it weaknes to whatever damage you just gave it.
When you swing the first time, it will do the fire, frost, or shock damage then give them a weakness
to it. The second swing will do a lot more damage.
Hints: Glitch: Cannot fast travel anywhere:
Make sure you are a part of the Thieves Guild first. This glitch will be easier to undo if you save your
game beforehand so that it can be reloaded. Do something to where a guard chases you. When he
confronts you, select 'Resist Arrest'. Run to any person in the Thieves Guild that can take your bounty
away. When you get to that person, make sure that the guards are still by you and are chasing
you. Before the guards can get to you, talk to that thief and select the 'Take Off My Bounty' option.
After he takes it off, the guards will still be chasing you. Go up to a guard, hold Block,
and select 'Talk' to say that you surrender. This is in the game because if you hurt a friend and
he starts hitting you, it allows you to tell the friend that you are sorry and he will stop. The
guard will stop hitting you. Go to your map and try to fast travel anywhere. The game will say you
cannot because guards are chasing you.
Hints: Performance Improvement:
Applicable only to Xbox 360s with the HDD. Cold boot [power on] while holding the Green button to clear
the HDD's cache. This should reduce the game's choppiness for a while.
Hints: Glitch: Lock pick:
When picking a lock, there is a way to get it to automatically picked virtually every time, regardless
of the lock's difficulty. Do the very first spring manually. Once it is in place, do the following.
As you hit the Analog-stick to go to the next spring, hit X button a split second afterwards.
The arrow should be in between the first and second springs as you hit X. If done correctly,
you will get the lock open on the very first try.
Hints: Easy Sneak experience:
A very easy way to increase your Sneak skill is to find someone who is sleeping. Find a wall that they
are near, then run against the wall while sneaking. As long as no one can see you, your skill will
go increase until the person wakes. If this happens, wait until night and allow them go back to
When you have the option to join the Thieves Guild by meeting Armand Christope at the Imperial Water
Front garden around 11 p.m., accept his task. He will offer you the option to buy lockpicks. Do not
buy any. Go into sneak mode and get behind him. Not only will you get the lockpicks from him, you
can also repeatedly pickpocket him to build up your Sneak skill. He will just tell you to go ahead,
and that he does not need it anyway.
Whenever you get in jail, go into sneak mode. Move around for awhile and your Sneak level will rise.
After the assassination of Emperor Uriel Septim [during the opening mission], leave the Emperor's body
with one of his guards, Baurus. After walking down the newly revealed 'secret' passage, turn around.
You should still be able to see Emperor Septim's body and part of Baurus. Walk to the nearest
corner [to your left], put yourself in sneak mode, then walk forward. Your Sneak level will increase
quickly from here. If you have a wired controller, you can keep the Analog-stick held Forward
and allow the game to idle. Check back every fifteen minutes, as the game will pause as you reach
achieve Apprentice, Journeyman, Expert or Master classifications. If you done correctly, you should
be at 100 Sneak within ninety minutes.
Join the Dark Brotherhood. When you recieve your first quest to kill Rufio, enter his room and go into
sneak mode. Rufio sleeps for 20 hours a day. Walk around in his room or use a rubber band to hold
the Analog-stick so that you are running directly into the wall to gain very easy Sneak levels.
Complete the Fighting Arena in the Imperial City and become Grand Champion. Once you collect all your
money from the Bloodworks person, go outside. There will be a kid that runs up to you and say that
he is your biggest fan. He will ask if he can follow you around. Select 'Yes you may follow me around'
and he will go wherever you go. Go to a place away from any guards or people. Crouch into sneak
mode. Select 'Pickpocket' on the kid. You will be brought into his inventory. Press B to exit
out of his inventory. Do not steal anything. Repeat this by hiting A to pick pocket and B
to exit. You will gain Sneak experience very quickly. He does not care if you pickpocket him because
he is your 'biggest fan'.
Hints: Glitch: Main quest:
This trick requires ten to fifteen paintbrushes. they can be found anywhere in the game, particularly
in boxes, shelves, etc. You can use this glitch even if you have not started the main quest yet.
Once you acquire the of paintbrushes, go in front of the Temple Of The One in the Imperial City Temple
District. Climb you way to the top using the 'Floating paintbrushes' glitch. Once you are close
to the top, jump on the roof. You will go through, landing inside The Temple Of The One. You can
see everybody else but they cannot see you. Walk close to where the door would be if you were inside
it normally. You will see the top half of the same door you are in front of. Select it to enter
the real interior of The Temple Of The One. Notice the hole in the ceiling where the light comes
down. You will see a red sky. Walk outside and and two Oblivion Gates will be opened. Your quest
will be updated, stating that Dagon is here and that you should talk to Martin. Even if you are not
close to completing the main quest this glitch will still work. Go inside both of the Oblivion
Gates and get the Sigil Stones. Later you will end up crossing over Dagon. Kill him then talk to Martin
in the Cloud Ruler temple.
Hints: Easy Alchemy experience:
Steal a mortar and pestle. Steal a lot of food items and turn them into potions. It should not take too
long before you reach the Master Of Alchemy level.
Get two ingredients that form to make a potion. Use the 'Duplicate items' glitch on the ingredients to
create a large number of them. Then continually, make potions and your Alchemy will increase extremely
fast. Note: Only duplicate about 100 of each ingredient at a time or the game will freeze.
Hints: Avoid becoming over-encumbered:
An easy way to lose weight to avoid being over-encumbered is to make potions.
Hints: Glitch: Leave level boundary:
Use the following trick to get outside the boundary in FrostFire Glade. When do the quest Tears of the
Savior [finding Garridans Tears], go to where you must put the refined frost salts on the door [in
the cave]. Go through the door and go to your right. Go up the steep slope on the left side of
the tree sitting in between two rocks. Keep tapping Y on the left side of the second rock [on the
left side of the tree]. Once you move a certain distance you will stop jumping. However if you quickly
pull Away then Forward again [you may have to do this multiple times] you will eventually
jump and do a little slide and go further up the slope, Do this multiple times while adjusting
your character accordingly. You will eventually slide through a gap between the big rock and two little
stones. You will then be outside the level. Be careful about dropping down the second level
of the outside map, as you will not fall, but if you walk forward toi quickly it is a 90 degree downward
angle. Try walking sideways slowly and you will eventually get down as if you are walking on a slant.
Complete all the Mage Guild Recommendation Quests so that you can enter the Arcane University. Get five
or more Grand Soul Gems and fill them with Grand Souls. Buy a Chameleon spell such as Shroudwalk
from a mage. Go to the place where you enchant weapons with the following: two rings, one necklace
or amulet, and any two pieces of armor. Enchant the rings, amulet and armor with the Chameleon
effect using the Grand Soul Gems. You will get 20% Chameleon for each of the equipment, for a total
of 100%. Equip them all at once and you will be invisible to everyone. You can now steal directly
from people and attack anything without fear of retaliation because they cannot see you. Use this
to cause mischief around towns, finish quests or dungeons without getting in battles, or to defeat
an enemy without getting hurt. Note: You must wear all the pieces at once to be 100% invisible.
You can use any other type of equipment as long as there are at least five pieces and all have been
enchanted using Grand Soul Gems. Some enemies may hit you once, but they will not do so again.
Hints: Easy money:
A quick way to make money without going to the trouble of stealing or fighting for it is to join a guild.
When you join a guild you will have access to a number of guild halls all over Tamriel. It seems
that the guild has no problem sharing their wealth. You can pick up nearly any item in the various
guilds without making it a crime, and without labeling your items as stolen. By doing this you
can just loot the guild halls and sell them to the closest merchant for an easy profit. It is not
very ethical but quite effective.
When you defeat Caminalda on the Anvil Recommendation quest for the mages guild, search her body for
gold and her room key for the inn. Use her room key on the upper door in the inn. You will find a
treasure chest in the back of the room. Open the unlocked chest to get all of the gold that is inside.
Use the following trick to easily complete the 'independent thievery' requirements and get easy gold.
Get a very valuable item such as the skeleton key [from the Nocturnal Daedric Shrine quest]. Use
the 'Duplicate items' glitch. Go to any merchant and sell the duplicates. If you sell the items to
a Thieves Guild fence, you should have the required amount for most of the remaining quests in no
Hints: Skingrad: Song reference:
When you go to Skingrad Castle [where the Lord is the Vampire], follow the lizard woman wearing a green
tunic. After awhile she will stop and talk to a passerby in the castle. She will start talking
about some wine she had drank from the nearest wine vender in town. The passerby replies 'Yes he is
a very good friend of mine. He let me drink his wine. It was a mighty fine wine!'. These are lyrics
to the song 'Joy To The World' by Three Dog Night.
Hints: Becoming a vampire:
Before you become a vampire, it is recomended that you become a member of the Mages Guild, access to
the Arcane University, and either a member of the Dark Brotherhood or started the Order of Virtuous
Dark Brotherhood Story: Become a member of the Dark Brotherhood by killing an innocent person, going
to sleep in an inn, traveling to the Inn of Ill Omen, and killing Rufio. Travel to the Sanctuary and
talk to Vicente and finish all of his contracts. He will then ask if you wish to become a vampire.
Say 'Yes', then sleep on the slab. When you wake up, sleep again for twenty four hours three times.
You are now a full-fledged vampire.
Order Of Virtuous Blood Story: It is not required to begin the quest, but if you do the vampires will
be easier to kill. If you have not, travel along the river just to the east of Imperial City until
you find a cave. Go in and you should find lots of vampires. Attack one and let it hit you a few
times. Kill it, then go back to Imperial City. Get a room in an inn and sleep for twenty four hours
three times. You are now a full-fledged vampire.
Use the following trick to become a vampire without doing quests. When you sleep outside frequenly, eventually
you will wake up and a message will state that you have had a strange dream. After this
you will have very strange dreams and will have all the attributes of a vampire. Be careful of being
outside during the day.

Hints: Enemy and item levels:
Every enemy outside the cities and some inside will level as you level. For example, if your at level
10 and are fighting Boars outside the city, when you reach level 15 you will be fighting a Troll.
The same goes for missions such the Forlorn Watchman. If you do the quest at level 10, you will fight
Ghosts on the ship. If you do it at level 20, you will fight Wraiths. Do not waste time trying
to level up just to beat one opponent in a quest because they could be set to always be three levels
above you. This same style of progression also works with armor and weapons:
Note: The armor and weapons usually do not appear at traders until you are two levels above them, sometimes
longer. Also, any 'secret' weapons such as the Umbra and the NPCs with them or wearing the
'secret' armor are level locked. They will not get any more difficult because usually their levels
are already about 22 t o30. However, as you become better with a blade [in the Umbra's case], the
better the attack will be.
Fur/Iron: Level 1
Leather/Steel: Level 13
Chain/Dwarven: Level 16
Mithril/Orchish: Level 110
Elven/Ebony: Level 115
Glass/Daedric: Level 120
Iron: Level 11
Steel: Level 12
Silver: Level 14
Dwarven: Level 16
Elven: Level 19
Glass: Level 112
Ebony: Level 116
Daedric: Level 120
Hints: Glitch: Permanent enchantment:
Use the following trick for duplication or a permanent enchantment. You can duplicate a drop-able item,
and if that item is equipable with constant effect enchantments you can make them permanent. However,
the item once made permanent cannot be re-equipped . But each enchanted item is different.
You can use the duplication glitch to make as many as you desired, then sell them. Use the 'Duplicate
items' cheat with a bow an arrows to duplicate the items to make permanent. Equip one of the items
you want to make permanent. There must be an unequipped version still in your inventory for this
to work. Use the 'Duplicate items' glitch again. However, drop the unequipped version of the item
you have equipped and want to make permanent. The equipped one and the others will drop and you
will never be able to equip that item again. However if you check your stats the items bonuses will
be permanent. You can duplicate anything that can be dropped, including Grand Soul Gems with Grand
Note: This glitch only works with wearable items. Take any wearable item with a magical enchantment that
you wish to make permanent and duplicate it twice so that you have two of that item. Pick up the
item and equip one. While you are wearing that item, duplicate the one you are not wearing by at
least four. Note: the number of arrows used determines how many copies are made. Both items will
drop on the ground in stacks of two. You are now no longer wearing that item, yet you still have
its effects. Note: These effects are permanent. Do not attempt this with any item with an effect you
may want to remove later, such as Water Walking, Night Eye, etc.
Hints: Glitch: Note:
Since the game's original release, there was an Xbox Live update for The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion.
If you wish to use the glitches, do not download it. It patches a lot of glitches, including
the 'Duplicate items' and 'Unlimited gold' type glitches.
Hints: Easy Conjuration experience:
Near the town of Bruna, go east, southeast. If you reach The Red Ruby Cave you went too far. You will
need to go back west slightly. You should see a shrine, that will once activated, will give you Conjuration
points as well as a temporary bound weapon and/or greaves. You can keep activating the
shrine every 24 hours. Wait in front of it for 24 hours, then activate it again. Repeat this as many
times as desired.
Hints: Easy Speech level:
Find a person whom you do not care about them liking you [preferably a guard]. Go into persuade mode.
Rapidly rotate the Left Analog-stick and tap A. It does not matter what you pick; just rotate
and tap. In about five minutes you can go over level 40 Speech.
Hints: Skeleton Key:
Once you are level 10, you can do the Weird Shrines. This shrine gives you a lockpick key that never
breaks and sets your Security to 'Expert'. To get it, you must go to Leyawiin south of Imperial City.
Then, travel north using the right road [that does not lead to Bravil]. You will find a shrine
called Nocturne, where there will be some people praying. Go up and activate the shrine. The statue
will talk about some thieves who stole her eye. From here you should be able to get it on your
own. However if you are having some trouble, go back to Leyawiin and talk to the guard. He will tell
you about Webaa-Na. You may have have encountered him before if you did the quest to become a knight-errant.
Talk to both Webaa-Na and his friend. They will admit nothing. Walk away and in a little
while they will start talking about trolls or something. They will stop because you are in the
room. Hide and listen to them talk about it. Once you have heard them talking, they will tell you
the location of the eye. It is in a cave. Go to the cave, retrieve the eye, and go back to the Nocturne
Shrine. You will get the Skeleton Key, which greatly helps lockpicking because it does not break.
Hints: More Magika:
Get into the Arcane University. Get some decent Soul Gems with decent souls and enchant something constant
effected fortify Magika/Intelligence. With enchanted items [each roughly 20 points], it is useful.
Use the duplicate item cheat to get many Soul Gems.
Hints: Easy Armorer experience:
There is a woman named Arvena Thelas in the town of Anvil who has four rats in her basement [the same
as the first Fighter's Guild quest]. If your level is high enough that rats do not cause you significant
damage, you can break into her house, annoy the rats by punching them [or casting drain fatigue
spells if your punch is too strong], then letting all four rats attack you while you just cast
an occasional heal spell. This is also useful for raising your Block skill, and is much easier
than repeatedly causing summoned monsters to attack you.
Gain access to the Arcane University. Go to where you make spells and make a spell that damages armor
and put it on 'self.' Use the 'Duplicate items' glitch on repair hammers then just cast and repair
to get the skill up.
Hints: Easy lockpick use:
While unlocking a door, hit Up on a key, then immediately pause game play afterwards. , Look at the
tab you raised up. If it is mostly up and about to reach the top, resume the game and do it again.
If it is mostly half-way or mostly down, resume the game and immediately hit A. You should
have that tab done. Continue on with the next tab. This might require a few attempts, but after you
have done it once it should be easy.
Hints: Non-random Sigil Stones:
While in Sigillum Sanguis [the Sigil Keep at the top of an Oblivion Citadel], save the game while standing
in front of the Sigil Stone. If the effects of the stone you get are not to your liking, load
from the point before you grabbed it. The Sigil Stone you get is chosen at random upon removing
Hints: Easy Mercantile experience:
Join a guild that has a building, like the Mages or Fighting Guild. Go in and take as much as you can.
