I'm new to all the enchanting stuff, is the only way to learn an enchantment, to disenchant a weapon/armour that already has it? I really want the markman/archery enchantment for my stuff, but not sure where to start looking.
Yes. Find something with an enchantment and destroy it to learn that particular one. It's a tough decisions sometimes. I had bracers with a 25% bonus to archery, and had to decide whether or not to do this. It's worth it in the long run though.
The items are random, as well. So just keep looting and eventually you'll get one. I've always noticed that more loot seems to drop for your particular build as well, so this could be part of the radiant story.
I have been giving lots of hints toward enchanting and even have several posts about it but here are 2 very important hints for beginners.
1. You only need to disenchant an item 1 time to learn its enchantment. (Example: magica regen, fire resistance, weight gain, frost resistance, bow improvement) Then you can apply this knowledge as many times as you want.
2. If you have an item that gives 5 bonus and another item that gives 25 bonus, they will both give the exact same "knowledge" when disenchanted. So this means disenchant lower cheaper items to learn their knowledge. So disenchanting an item worth 200 gold
will get the same results as one that is worth 2,500 gold. This is why it is best to disenchant early in the game while the low items are available. Because as you level up, these lower enchanted items become very hard to find.
I have enchanted necklaces and rings for just about everything. I also have some for my follower. If I put all my enchanted items on myself and my follower to allow us to carry more weight, we can carry around 1,000. lol Rings and necklaces are easily
the best items in the game to enchant because they are so light and you can just swap them instantly depending on your situation. Plus dont forget you can rename enchanted items to whatever name you want!!
