What is the best skill to quickly raise strength?
Well, I used to juggle wrestling and pickpocket dip at max skill cap, back in the old days to get both dex and str.
But now I just parry train get 100 parry and let the unarmed female fighters keep hitting me in 15 minutes I'll have 100 str and 100 dex.
A kind thank you Mr. Scarst.
Arms lore is a good one for this. I also use melee skills on sheep/goats in Delucia (e.g., wrestling, swords, macing).
Mining and lumberjacking. You raise strength and gather resources at the same time.
I am going to go with Arm's Lore. If anyone knows better, post it!
when working stats I use mining for strength, music for dex and spirit speak for int.
Here's a chart (lower part of the page) that will tell you what stat each skill checks.
I don't know what method you use, but here's what I do:
I buy up as much skill as I can until I hit my cap. I make sure I leave the skills I plan to use (mining, music or spirit speak) at zero. Once I have bought skills so I'm maxed, I turn all my skill locks up so I have the potential to gain in all skills, and lock the stats I'm not trying to modify. I then start mining, playing music or talking to the dead (depending on what stat I want to change). When you are at 0 in a skill you are guaranteed to gain on an attempt at using the skill. With the possibility of a skill gain you also get a chance to gain in that skill's associated stat.
What this means is you will get more skill and stat checks, and will be more apt to get a stat gain than if your skill was higher than 0.
Once I have my stats where I want them I lock them, lower all my skill locks (except for the points I want to keep) and soulstone off and delete all the unnecessary skill points, clearing my template of the skills I don't want.
I've been doing stats this way for years, works like a charm every time.
