Skyrim- how to recharge enchanted items ?

Posted on 18 November 11 at 01:51, Edited on 18 November 11 at 18:30 by mitchcraft1980
ok so i have some really cool weapons i have enchanted through out the game but all the powers have been used up so you would think that re enchanting them would fill up its powers again but when ever i goto an enchantment table i cant pick the weapons that have already been enchanted but are empty , how do you refill them then ? cry

EDIT: Found solution last night .....

For those wondering the same all you need to do is go in to the items menu then press the RB button however many times you need to fill up the bar on the selected weapon or item needing refilled. You do need to have the soul gems with souls to refill though, but you dont need to go near an enchantment table at all, you can just do this from your menu in any place at any time.

Happy gaming all headspin

You need a soul trap spell and use that. If the enemy the enemy is killed while still under influence from the soul trap spell than an empty soul gem will be filled. Use the soul gem to refill the enchanted item - this is all from memory in oblivion so I hope that is right.

must be different in skyrim cos i have plenty of soul gems that are full so thats not the issue

i know how to collect souls the problem is recharging depleted enchanted items
