Weapon Enchantment already known??????
I can't disenchant the battle axe i looted with 25 shock damage to health and half as much damage to stamina (or was it magica?) because the game says the enchantment is already known? Whats going on here? Somebody clue me in please?

Well...have you actually checked to be sure you haven't already gotten that enchantment?

You already learned the enchantment for shock. You can't learn it twice, so go ahead and sell that axe. And, FYI, the shock secondary effect is X points of magicka damage.

Hey Elias i've been playing rpgs since the 90s so dont ever call me a noob. Never played elder scrolls before. Bought the game in 2011 but stopped at level 35 to complete other games i had pending. Anyway, my bosmer is melee and archery based and so i never gave time to learn magic.

So, noob then.

You must have disenchanted a weapon with the same attributes some time ago. Once you learn it, you can apply it to any of your unenchanted weapons. But, use the largest soul gem you can get your hands on for it.

Hey, we were all noobs at some point. Just was never into magic. I had used magical items in many other games but my only experience enchanting weapons was in Dragion Age. But that, as we all know, is totally different from how its done in Skyrim. In dragon age, you do not have to progress in a skill class to be able to improve enchanments.

Skyrim is hardcore in the magics.

As someone that has been playing mages in cRPGs since the 1980's (which means that I do get to call you noob) I think that Skyrim is hardly hardcore when it comes to magic. Magic is spammable and redundant and easy to acquire in this game. That isn't to say that I don't enjoy Skyrim; I do. But is most certainly isn't hardcore.

I have to agree that magic isn't hardcore here, but I still like it. Only school I actually dislike is Destruction itself. No combinations, what so ever. You just keep spamming the spell, untill either you or your enemy drops. That is kind of boring. Other schools, however, rock. Hard.

Gwindor. I am unsure if I have seen you around. Welcome and hang around. Don't mind about noobians. I was first confused if enchantments were weapon related or general.

Edit. Well. "Hard" still left me to wish that Bethesda would have actually created the spirit line in to Conjuration. They opened it with Familiar and then... just brutally killed the line. *Meh*

Attributed to the Catholic Tolkien Fan in me since the late 80s, my attitude towards magic is that it can be about dominance (power) or art (to further enhance the natural world). However, to me the line between the two has always been faded. I suppose if we were really able to live in these fantasy worlds, the results of the frequent use of Magic or Mage craft would evitably lead to something evil. Innocent at first but all consuming later on.

I am of course well aware that, within the framework of these fantasy worlds, the rules are different and magic is necessary and allowable to a certain extent.

Yeah, it would be interesting to have a "Dorian Grey" type self portrait in ones own homes which would slowly reflect the status of one's in-game soul or karma (whatever floats your world-view boat).

Yep
