    You will get this achievement naturally but if you want to get it easily and fast here is the way.

    When you get to Riverwood find an elven character named Faendal and converse with him, he will give you a fake letter to give to Camilla Valerius. Do it and he will be available as a follower.

    Now ask him to follow you then ask for Archery training then pay him, go up as much levels as you can afford and then ask to trade equipment and take your money back. Rinse and Repeat until you are level 10.

    If you need money pick up the Lumbermans Axe stuck in a log behind the mill. Near the mill there is an intractable pile of logs that you can chop to make Fire Wood. You can sell these to Hod for 5 gold coins per Fire Wood.

    Hampshire VeganCan't find the mill for the life of me, have checked every building. Found the logs, no axe though. Did you mean Inn?

    Vahliya@John Pellegrini, I have quickly edited and added two images, hopefully they will help you.

    Reaching level 10 happens much quicker then it did in previous releases. In Oblivion, only your major stat increases would count toward increasing your level, but that is fixed in Skyrim! Every increase in a skill helps to increase your overall level.

    Using SNEAK skill to level up as much as you want through idling boosting.

    This can be done in two ways.

    At the start of the game, when you are escaping through the caves BEFORE you exit. After you fight a few spiders, you will come across a sleeping bear which you will have to sneak around.

    A Second possibility, although it is random to find.

    If you come across a sleeping enemy that doesn't wake (I found one in a cave, but he wasn't there before, so this will only work (after you have exited the cave in the intro) when you come across one randomly.

    When you have found your sleeping enemy or bear...

    1. Make your character SNEAK and then rubberband your LS so that you are always walking into a wall with the sleeping bear or enemy in view. You can check by pulling out your weapon and making sure it is moving a bit.

    2. make sure your controller is wired.

    3. then leave it for 4-6 hours (depending on your perks, if you are just starting it should take closer to 6 hours to get to level 100)

    4. When you come back, you should be at level 100 for the SNEAK skill. Make Sneak skill legendary (which will reset it back to level 15) and then repeat.


    You should be able to get to level 17 the first trip to 100. You can save your perks and assign all of the HP, Stamina and Magica when you come back. At level 40, you only get about 3 levels per 100 skill points in Sneak. Less when you go up.

    Essentially you could rank up to whatever level you want before you really even start the game. Keep in mind you need to be at level 78 in order to have a 100% completion to this game.
