A Guide To All Skyrim Achievements And Trophies

Here I will give you an overview of all the achievements and trophies you can earn in the game Skyrim and of course how you can earn these!

This one is pretty straight forward. Kill enemies, practice your crafting and you will eventually get to level 10 and have this fairly easy achievement with you.

Complete “Alduin’s Wall.”


Reach Level 5.

Basically just kill stuff, and do the first few quests, and you will have this achievement in no time.


Make a smithed item, an enchanted item and a potion.

This achievement is pretty simple. You only need to make  3 items. To make these 3 items you will need to use an Alchemy Table, an Arcane Enchanter and a Workbench.

Buy a house.

Buying a house may be a long task to accomplish and will always be expensive. You might need to become a Thrane from a Jarl or complete certain quests.
