The more powerful the enchanter, the stronger the magic he can bind to his weapons and armor.
Any character can benefit from this tree if you plan on using enchanting. A pure mage, who does not use weapon or wear armor, will have no use for this tree. Either way, take only if you are going to use enchanting.
Level enchanting up by enchanting and disenchanting magical items, and by recharging weapons using soul gems. You can also talk to enchanting trainers to level up your enchanting skill up to five points each level.
