So I easiely have at least 10,000 in gold and was wondering what great stuff people have found to buy. I'm the kind of person to pick and sell everything, but it seems like I've got nothing to buy. currently I'm buying grand soul gems of people so they have enough moeny for me to sell them my stuff. smithing and enchancting seems to be the way to go, so where do I spend my cash????

Buy a house to store your shit, then spend the rest on training.

Yeah a house is the only real major investment you can make in that game.

This game hands you money like its nothing to be honest. I own every house in the game with every upgrade, bought the materiel to make every single piece of armor/weapons in the game and still have over 100k. I don't think I have dropped bellow 15k since level 10. But yeah I would recommend a house, or if you plan on making Daedric armor then buy a shit load of ebony ingots and daedra hearts.

You can easily spend 8000 gold on skill training every level. That's what I've been devoting most of my money toward.

Probably a house, training, and armor. A house in Solitude costs 25,000 gold. I don't know why, but when I spend over 5,000 gold on something I feel shame. I also feel like I need to make all the money back that I just spent lol. That guy at Skyforge is such a rip off, he's charging me 4,000 gold a level for smithing. I refuse to pay that much gold! It also annoys me when I see an NPC with 12,000 of my gold. Is it wrong that I let an NPC die and after everyone walked away I took my money off their corpse and left them naked?

Whenever someone that I don't like dies I just take their clothes and leave them there. Don't you judge me!

10k ain't that much, you can easily spend that on 5 skill-ups every level.

I use money only for buying things to disenchant or buying ingots for smithing.

Iron Ingot + Leather Strips = Iron Dagger.

Iron Dagger = +Smithing.

+Smithing = Good.

Go.

Then enchant said daggers, and make more money. But yeah... 10k+ is usually what 5 skill points via training cost. Buy a house to store stuff, then keep raking in the monies in the meantime.

It'd be awesome if they let you drop your gold so you could litter every inch of your houses in gold coins. Though I guess if you really wanted to do that you could use console commands to spawn a bunch of gold...though even that might not work cause I'm pretty sure it goes straight to your inventory.

I don't know if it works with all NPCs but you could just pickpocket your money back just do it in small chunks I think it's harder with over 500 gold or 5000 gold. Also if your companion can train you in combat or w/e you can train stuff then ask to trade and take your money back :D.

I have 80k gold and 100 in smithing :D. And like 40 dragon scales and bones in my home, I'm gonna drop each gold coin 1 by 1 in my house and see how that looks it's probably going to crash the game, I want someone to mod the inventory so when I choose how many of those items I want to drop I press 1 and not drag that thing all the way to the left.

I pretty much maxed smithing in 45 mins using this, the vendors have the iron/leather so it's pretty easy to do :)

Yep. I hit 100 a day or two ago and it does make the game extremely easy. Guess I should up the difficulty, but it is fun to walk around dominating all comers like a god.
