How to Farm More Exp in the Sewer in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Use rats and goblins to get xp to make early gameplay easy.

Sewer XP farm

When you enter the sewers after starting a new save, you can grind some xp on many stats easy, including but not limited to:

  • Block
  • Acrobatics
  • Restoration
  • Light Armor
  • Heavy Armor
  • Athletics
  • Sneak

The idea is simple. Start as a breton. Kill all the rats except for one and let it attack you endlessly while using a healing spell(restoration, armor).

If you start getting low on magicka, either run away(athletics, acrobatics) until it recharges, or use a shield to block(block). You can find a shield and pieces of light and heavy armor throughout the sewer level.

Eventually your shield will break but using a sword to block will accomplish the same goal. You can still gain XP on armor when its broken.

If you get bored of the rat, move onto the goblin(s).
