Skyrim – Strategy Guide – Skill Book Locations

Posted by on November 16, 2011 at 8:49 pm

Skyrim is, as most know, a very involved game full of twists, turns and plot elements. It’s also full of nifty things like skill books which will help you raise up your various skills in an instant, to make you a whirlwind of armored, spell slinging whoop-ass.

We’ve posted a couple of other strategy guides, including cooking, alchemythievery and one with all of the dragon shout rune locations. This will likely be our last for Skyrim guide so get it while it’s hot!

As the title implies, this guide will give you the location of every single known skill book in the game. I won’t swear that it’s all inclusive but I will promise that it’s pretty damned close.

Hope it helps, Skyrimmers!
