Walkthrough - Skyrim Warrior Leveling Tips
Welcome to Walkthrough. Today, I am going to give you tips on your way to increase your character's skills as a warrior whether you are playing a warrior character or trying to reach 100 skill level in all eighteen skills. Here is what you need to know.
The Skills for the Warrior are: Archery, Block, Heavy Armor, One-Handed, Smithing, and Two-Handed.
Archery - The Skill of using Bow and Arrow. Experience is gained whenever your arrows hit any creature.
Use the Long Bow with Iron Arrows on enemies. Iron Arrows may not be the weakest arrow, but they are the most plentiful. Also, going to Angi's Camp, south of Falkreath on the border with Cyrodiil, you can practice with her and get a few free skill levels.
Block - The Shield Skill that deals with blocking and bashing.
For this skill, you want to wield the strongest shield you can get. How I got to 100 Block, I had a Dragonscale Shield for my main is a Thief character using Light Armor. I went into Northwind Mine on the east border between the Eastmarch and the Rift. Killing all the skeletons but one. I backed into a corner, used a portable plastic cup holder to hold the block button down, and just let the skeleton wail on me.
This strategy is not recommended for beginning characters. Remember to keep track of your health. This is a long time strategy, it took two hours for me to get from 77 to 100 Block.
Heavy Armor - The Warrior's Armor skill. Like Block, you want the strongest armor set you can get your hands on preferrably Dragonplate. Taking damage while wearing Heavy Armor is the way to get experience.
There really is no strategy to quick leveling this skill. Basically standing still while getting hit by some low-level enemies like a horde of skeletons is the way to go. Just as with Block, keep track of your health.
One-Handed/Two-Handed - The melee weapon skills of Skyrim. Every strike you make against any creature levels up this skill.
Using an Iron (Sword/Axe/Mace) or (Greatsword/Battleaxe/Warhammer), this way you get the most strikes at your opponent.
Smithing - The Crafting skill of the Warrior. You can make weapons and armor. The higher the skill, the more armor sets you can have access to, if you spend your perk points.
The strategy here is to make Iron Daggers and nothing else. Iron Daggers require 1 Iron Ingot and 1 Leather Strip. Both materials are easy to get a hold of. If you keep all the daggers you make, they make good items for enchanting if you're leveling that as well.
Like Enchanting and Alchemy, what you need for Smithing is a Blacksmith Forge or Anvil for creating your weapons and armor. You can also use a Smelter to turn your raw ore into ingots, which are used in the forging process.
