    This achievement can be obtained at Riverwood.

    When escaping from Helgen you will pass through a Imperial torture room, there will be three cages, and a bag on a desk with several lockpicks. Lockpic the centre cage and search the body to collect his enchanted robe and hood.

    When you arrive at Riverwood you will pass a Smithery where you can
    do an unmarked/miscellaneous quest activated by Alvor, doing so will net you with smithing an item.

    Walk straight along the road in Riverwood and enter the Sleeping
    Giant Inn, and buy some ingredients from Orgnar, the man behind the bar, and use the table to his left to make a potion.

    Now for the final part, travel south-west of Riverwood to Anise's Cabin and enter the cellar to find the Arcane Enchanter, now break down the enchanted clothing found in Helgen and use that, and a soul gem, to craft your own enchanted clothing.

    Simple, it takes less than 10 minutes after leaving Helgen.

    FlintyCube75724It would help if you said what ingredients are needed to make a potion

    Vahliya@FlintyCube75724; I don't want to seem rude, but there are far too many recipes, many composed by completely different ingredients, for me to list. Also, it's impossible for me to know what ingredients everyone would have collected in-game.
    So it would actually help if you were to go to the following link to see what potion(s) you could create;

    - For some reason, TA removes the final bracket from the link, so you'll have to add that in manually.

    Smithing: Go to whiterun. You will get a small introduction on smithing there (first building to the right as soon as you enter through the gate)

    Enchanted item: keep going into dragonsreach (up the hill in whiterun) there will be an altar for enchanting to the right of the Jarl's throne. You do need a filled soulgem create and an enchanted item to destroy

    Potion: right next to the enchantment altar in dragonsreach there is an alchemy altar. Just get a couple of ingredients and eat one of each. Then combine two ingredients that have the same effect into a potion

    ELpanda felizIn Dragonsreach, if you ask to the mage (i forget his name, sorry) how he do to make his enchantement, after the answer, they're will be a misc objective: use the enchantement altar. A very easy misc objective.

    1. In River-wood, talk to alvor, he gives you a free smithing lesson. Craft what he says.

    2. Go to Dragon's reach, talk to the court wizard. His room is to the right of the Jarl's throne as you face it. Talk to him, disenchant a magical item, and enchant another piece of equipment of the sma eenchantment or another.

    3. Return to riverwood. Go to the Sleeping Giant Inn and ask if you can use his apothacary table (thing). He gives you blisterwort and wheat. Combine the two and there you go. (Bleep bloop)
