So I take it you have complete wardrobes for making potions, then change in to another and take a potion to smth, and do it once more to enchant? I may spend the time to do it when I get level 100 in them all.
Can you change enchants on an item, or do I need to find another ebony bow and hold on to it for later?

4 pieces of armor/jewelry for smithing, plus smithing potions .

3 pieces of armor/jewelry for alchemy.

I don't believe there's any piece of armor/jewelry to enhance enchantment though. Best you can do is buy the Enchanter's Elixir (+50% Enchant).

You can't re-enchant an already enchanted item, or add another enchant to it even with the two-enchants perk.

If I remember right, I stumbled over some bracers enhancing enchantments 20%. I am too lazy to use them anyways.

Never played any sort of elder scrolls game before.

I don't seem to be able to progess any more at this poin using my current strategy of being a pure mage. I'm getting my ass kicked by everyone. One hit and I'm dead. Does the game continue to get harder and harder, or at some point do you gain more than your enemies when you level up?

Or is there something like at a certain point, (like, once you hit level 25, which I just did) where the enemies suddenly get extra killing power?

I'm debating now if I want to start getting some armor to help me survive the bad guys, or if I want to develop a chemical dependacy in the game as well by mixing together all sort of feel-good potions and painkillers. Just worried that leveling up anymore is gonna make this game even harder.

Of course, I could just change the skill level, come to think of it.

I wonder how many people's character names are the same as their ADV Moniker...
