Woodchopping

Woodcutting is a side-job performed in several villages and cities around Skyrim. A Woodcutter's Axe must be in the inventory in order to cut wood at a chopping block.

YieldEdit

Each chop produces 2 firewood at no true cost to the player, other than the need to have a woodcutter's axe in their inventory. Each chop is estimated to take 10 seconds, and the player stops working after 3 chops, estimating 6 chops in a minute, 12 pieces of firewood in that minute, and roughly 720 in an hour. An hour out-of-game is estimated to be 24 hours in-game (2.5 minutes = 1 hour). This means in an hour, players can earn 3600 GoldIcon at no cost but the time it takes.

General good merchants purchase firewood for less GoldIcon than millers, but the Speech skill increases if this method is selected.

EmploymentEdit

Woodcutting

Woodcutting for pay.

Employers for woodchoppers purchase all firewood in the player's inventory at once for the base asking price. Each wood chop produces 2 pieces of wood, each piece of wood is worth 5 gold each, and also weighs 5 pounds each.
