Important Console Commands
By Beer Whisperer
For people who needs to fix their broken quests, people who hate grinding for items and level after their 99999th character and / or cheetahs (Sorry, couldn't hold myself.)
Getting Started
First of all console commands aren't just used for cheats but also fixing bugs, speeding up grinding process etc.

To use console commands in the game, you must type them at console screen. On American English keyboards, the tilde key (~) will toggle the console screen, but on British English keyboards, that key is the grave key ( ` ). The tilde key on American English keyboards also picture the grave symbol. The key is located below Escape ( Esc ) and just left of the one (1) key.

Entering codes
Codes are not case sensitive; "a" is same as "A".
Codes are shown as: Code <Variable> <#>
The < and > are not entered with the code, and # is replaced by the desired quantity.
The code to add an item is listed as: Player.AddItem <ItemID> <#>
If you wanted to add 500 gold, it would be entered as:
player.additem f 500

To target an object, open the console and click the object. Its name will appear about center screen. An item targeted in the console is also called a reference.
A target may also be selected using the PRID command and the target's Reference ID.

Short Code or Prefix Required
Short code refers to a code having a short form that can be used interchangeably with the Long form.
ToggleFogOfWar is the long code form.
TFOW is the short code form.
Prefix Required refers to a code needing a prefix to work as intended.
SetHealth <#> will set the max health of the target selected by clicking or the PRID command to <#>.
Player.SetHealth <#> will set your max health to <#>.
Items and Materials
So now you learned (or already knew) the basics of console, we can start with items and materials. It's impossible to list every single item or material in the game. So I'll list the most important ones. For example, I can't list iron arrow, iron dagger, iron bow seperately (It'll take massive amounts of time). Instead I'll list FormID of iron ingot so you can craft them yourself. Hit ctrl+f to search for an item you need.

Console command for adding items in your inventory is "player.additem FormID #" (without quotes)

So let's say you want 10 iron ingots. You type this to console screen:

player.additem 0005ACE4 10

"XX" in regards to console commands denotes that the object is from an official plugin (also known as DLC). Usually found in the BaseID or RefID of items or characters, these first two numbers change depending on the order of installation or the order the of ESP files in the data files section of the game launcher.
For instance, installing The Elder Scrolls IV: Knights of the Nine onto a computer with Oblivion sets XX to "01." If The Vile Lair was installed second, XX becomes "02" and so on indefinitely. As another example, if one owns all of the add-ons (as part of the Legendary Edition) for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, items added by The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard will, by default, have "02" as their first two digits, while items added by The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn will normally have "04".

A way of checking for the XX number for a particular plugin in Skyrim while one is playing is to open the console and either type 'help' along with the name of a item known to be added by the plugin (with the name in quotation marks) or, again with the console open, click on a item in view added by the plugin; the console will then display the full RefID the first two numbers of which will be the XX for that plugin. For example, opening the console and clicking on a Ash Yam or entering the command help "ash yam" will show the XX for the Dragonborn item.

Skills and Leveling

You can use AdvSkill command to improve your skills. AdvSkill xxx <#> Gives the player the desired amount of skill usage points. xxx is ID of the skill and # is amount of experience. NOTE: Very inconsistent between skills. E.g. "AdvSkill speechcraft 3000" gives about as much Speech experience as "AdvSkill enchanting 1" gives Enchanting experience.

This is the list of skills verified to work using the AdvSkill and IncPCS commands, as well as SetAv, ForceAv, and ModAv.

Alchemy: alchemy
Alteration: alteration
Archery: marksman
Block: block
Conjuration: conjuration
Destruction: destruction
Enchanting: enchanting
Heavy Armor: heavyarmor
Illusion: illusion
Light Armor: lightarmor
Lockpicking: lockpicking
One-Handed: onehanded
Pickpocket: pickpocket
Restoration: restoration
Smithing: smithing
Sneak: sneak
Speech: speechcraft
Two-Handed: twohanded


You can use "player.setlevel <#>" (without quotes). It sets current level to <#>.

Alternatively player.advlevel can be used for a single level-up.

But with these commands you won't get a perk for every level. To get a perk you should use advskill command.
Shouts and Dragon Souls
To learn shouts with console commands, type:
player.unlockword xxxxx

player.teachword xxxxx

Add Shout xxxxx

xxxxx is ShoutID of the shout.

For example if you want to learn all three words of Unrelenting Force with console commands first you learn Fus, then Ro, and then Dah. To do this type "player.teachword 13E22" for Fus, "player.teachword 13E23" for Ro, "player.teachword 13E24" for Dah (without quotes) separately and in that order.

Use "player.forceav dragonsouls #" (without quotes) to get Dragon Souls. # is the number of souls.

Here's a list of important CellIDs:









RiftenMistveilKeep to see more of them.
To fix a quest or advance quickly I generally use "setstage (QuestID) # command. QuestID is the code of the quest and # means stage (every single part of quest) number. To check for this number of a quest stage, use this site:

setfavorstate 1 while having a Guard selected in the command console and clicking on a dropped item, makes that Guard pick-up and automatically equip that item. After issueing a command, typing setfavorstate 0 while a command has not yet been issued or pressed the TAB button will cancel and deactivate the command.

setrelationshiprank <RefID> <#> Used to set an NPCs disposition towards the player. <#> = 1-4 Note: If this doesn't help when attempting to add Follower dialogue, try setrelationshiprank <RefID> <#> then player.setrelationshiprank <RefID> <#>.

setscale <#> Sets the scale of an object. "1" is default. If no object is selected, applies to PC. NOTE: When used on an actor, it increases or decreases speed and damage. Also note that the lowest possible value to change the scale, is 0.1, and the highest possible value to change the scale, is 10.00, exactly on the dot.

Console Commands (3)

player.additem <ItemID> <#> Add an item to the inventory.

player.addperk <PerkID> Adds the perk.

Addshout <ShoutID> Add shout to player skill list. Shouts are also part of spells so in order for this command to work you would need the spells unlocked.
NOTE: Shouts can be unlocked using: player.unlockword <shoutID>

player.addspell <variable> Adds a spell, disease, or power. can be used for acquiring unused spell. ex: Conjure Dragon Priest, does not work for vampiric spells.

player.advlevel Force a Level Up (Does not add ability to pick a new perk)

AdvSkill <AV> <#> Give the player the desired amount of skill usage points. NOTE: Very inconsistent between skills. E.g. "AdvSkill speechcraft 3000" gives about as much Speech experience as "AdvSkill enchanting 1" gives Enchanting experience.

animcam Allows for the camera to view the player character from any direction without changing which way they are facing.

player.drop <ItemID> <#> This will drop the item.

enableplayercontrols This command is used to enable controls during cinematics when they're disabled. Occasionally the game will glitch, instead of reloading put in this command and carry on.

player.forceav <AV> <#> Should be avoided for use, as it overrides/ignores game's automatic calculations such as item bonuses, spell bonuses, etc.

player.forceav dragonsouls # Sets the number of Dragon Souls the player has. Replace # with the desired number.

fov <#> Adjust field of view. The default is 75, and the maximum value appears to be 160. Higher numbers allow a wider field of vision, but it can be distorted. Lower numbers show a "zoomed" view. 60-90 is a useful range.

IncPCS <AVskill> Increase the player's skill points by one point. For example, the command IncPCS marksman will raise the Archery skill by 1.

player.modav <AV> <+/-#> Modifies the Actor Value by <#>.

player.removespell <variable> Removes a spell, disease, or power.

player.setscale # Sets height for character. Use Tsun as an example for height. He ranks 1.23 on the height scale.

showracemenu Bring up character customization menu. Magicka, Stamina, and Health will be spread evenly on using this depending on your character's level. It will remove any custom point distributions. Note: Using TGM command before entering the menu will retain your original levels. Will only modify your attributes/skills/points/etc. if you change the race, sex, or select a preset from the list. Modifying cosmetic things like skin color/warpaint/hair/face shape/etc. will leave your points.

player.showinventory Lists all items in your inventory and their codes. PgUp and PgDwn to scroll through.

sucsm <#> Set the speed of the free-flying camera (tfc). The default is 1. Setting it to 2, for example, would double the speed, and to 0.5 would half the speed.

player.teachword <WOOP> Teaches a word of power, words can be found with the "help <word> 4" command and are recognizable by the WOOP tag.

player.unlockword <shoutID> Unlocks a word of power.

Most "Player commands" can be used on any NPC by left clicking them while in the console window, and typing the code without the Player. prefix.
The addperk command does not seem to work on NPCs, as they seem to rely upon the perks assigned to them.

Thank you for reading this guide. My purpose was creating a list so other people (and myself) can find the console command or ID in a single guide instead of alt+tabbing for every single item.

Favorite, rate and comment if you like this guide. I'll read all the commands and try to help you with your problems.

If you want more content added to this guide, comment about what can be added.

are used for all information of this guide. I just copied and edited them.

If I made any mistake about lists, please let me know. I'll fix it as fast as I can.

English isn't my first language so please let me know if I made any grammatical mistake.

If you're interested you can subscribe to my collection of mods for Skyrim. It has over 200 mods, all lore-friendly and can work together without problems. You'll need Dragonborn, Dawnguard and Hearthfire DLCs to use them all but you can download them separately. Link to collection:

You can finish it, but I guess that's not what you're asking. You can try to reload a save before you have taken that quest. Other than that I don't know a way.
