    Great guide above by PraXis91x for the Sneak skill; however, if you're already past that part of the game and/or fancy a bit of conjuration to level 100 with minimal effort, then check out my video below! :)

    PraXis91xGreat guide, Byranitar! Looks fun!

    Also thanks to H2O Paladin for the soul trap suggestion!

    z RagnaroK zYou can cut this time down considerably. Once you conjure your sword, hit B and go into your "Magic" tab. Re-elect the desired weapon conjuration spell, and it will de spawn/reset the weapon in hand. This essentially makes it so you don't have to wait the 120 seconds for it to reset.

    You can decrease the time even further by conjuring a weapon in each hand, instead of just one, and then reset. Hope this helps!

    Trych MasterThis took quite a while, but well worth it! Now I can repeat the process to increase levels for destruction, archery, and others.

    Thanks for the tip!

    If you don't mind cheesing it, you can earn this easily doing the Dragonborn DLC, and you'll need 11k gold.

    1.) Play the story until you are summoned by the Greybeards, and acquire the horn, and finally return to the Greybeards, being fully recognized as Dragonborn.

    2.) Run around until you are accosted by some cultists who look like they have a Cathulu mask. Answer them, doesnt matter what you say. Kill them and loot their corpse for a note.

    3.) Head to Windhelm, then to the docks for passage to Solthesiem, when able, head South-South East to find Kolbjorn Barrow. You'll run in to Ralis, who asks for some money, agree.

    Steps 4 and 5 in more detail
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    4.) Fast travel back to Raven Rock, and while inside, wait for 48-60 hours. Go outside and a courier will give you a note to return to Kolbjorn. Talk to Ralis, and kill Draugr.

    5.) Repeat until you deal with Ralis. In the area you fought the Dragon Priest, continue through the crypt to find a Black Book.

    6.) At the end of the bool, select "Secret of Arcana", a Power that reduces mana cost to 0 for 30 seconds.

    7.) You now need the spell Telekenesis. This can be acquired easily at Benkongerike, which can be found on Solthesim, to the southeast of Saering's Watch (a Dragonborn DLC plot location) or to the northwest of the Headwaters of Harstrad at about the halfway point between both locations.

    Just after entering Benkongerike Great Hall, to the right, in a tent, is a pile of thirteen copies of The Lusty Argonian Maid Vol 1 and six copies of The Lusty Argonian Maid Vol 2, and under these books is a Spell Tome for Telekinesis.

    8.) NOW, with "Secret of Arcana" as your Power, and Telekenesis equipped, find an item, use your Power, and use Telekenesis. While using Telekenesis, bring up the map and fast travel. As far as you can (you can do this in Skyrim, usual Riften to Dawnstar or vice versa is fine). This will raise your Alteration to 100.

    Simple solution for once you have reached High Hrothgar. Simply bring a a weak damaging knife (I used an Iron Dagger) and find a Greybeard sitting in prayer. Then turn up the difficulty to legendary and sneak up behind the Greybeard and attack him.
    Due to the high difficulty and the weakness of the dagger, they will not attack you in retaliation whilst you are undetected. This will send you sneak up at a fast rate.

    They will stand up eventually, but you will be able to keep going. That said though, they will turn around after a while, so be careful as this will cause them to attack you, so regular quicksaves are recomended just to be safe in case. Beyond that, Just keep going until you reach Lvl 100.
