A few words about the game

Skyrim is the fifth part of the legendary RPG series titled The Elder Scrolls. As in the classic RPG from the previous example, we're dealing with a fantasy world full of Dragons, hidden passages and complicated intrigues. This time, however, we follow the events from first or third-person perspective, and the gameplay becomes fully dynamic and responsive. Bethesda provided players with tons of content, and the title is highly modifiable, resulting in hundreds of hours lost by players. A piece of life torn apart by beautiful fiction.

Type of cruelty

Merchants. Are there professions in the video game world that we despise more? Not only are they brazenly overpriced, they also pay peanuts for our own gear. But over the decades, we've learned to live with them. But still, missing the opportunity to cheat them would be a terrible shame, especially since Skyrim is famous for its glitches and bugs.

One of the more absurd glitches allows the player completely clean stealing without any consequences. Just pick up any bucket and put it on the head of your chosen trader. Unaware of the action committed by the main character, they will stare unknowingly into the abyss. And we can steal anything we heartily want. Some items will not be of any use to us at all, so we can resell them to the unaware trader. That's what I call profit.
