I recieved Azura's star in a deidric quest and it is worthless to me. It's in my inventory but says it is empty, and I can not use it for enchantments. Anybody know how I can use this? It's suppose to be an unlimited amount of grand soul?
You need to fill it first. It's not unlimited amount of souls but it never breaks. Normal soul gems would disappear after use but the star doesn't.
To capture souls, you either need a weapon with a soul trap enchantment on it or the magic spell soul trap. Then kill that animal/person to obtain their soul. NOTE: All gems and the star can only hold one soul at a time.
Also, if my weapon fills a soul when the enemy is killed in 4 seconds, does that mean I have to use that 1 weapon to kill him, or can I wear him down with another weapon and use the soul trap enchanted weapon to deal the final blow?
The final blow is all that's needed to capture a soul. For me I have enchanted one of my bows with soul trap, 1 sec to kill. But as I'm playing a sneaky guy I usually kill all my foes in one because of 3x sneak bonus.
So it's all I need.
Mammoths for sure are grand souls, while giants are greater souls. I got the black star since all humans are grand souls no matter what. Find a cheap soul trap weapon that you can destroy and enchant either a bow or sword for only 1 second duration so you
will have the most charges for it.
