Alternative Chests for Greater Gains

Outside Markarth: Find a chest near a bridge near Salvius Farm and sell the looted items to blacksmiths and general goods merchants.

Outside Solitude: Locate a chest outside Solitude’s city gates and repeat the glitch to acquire valuable items for selling.

Near Dawnstar Mine: Uncover a hidden chest near the mine entrance in Dawnstar and sell the looted items to the Khajiit caravan in town.

At The Blue Palace: Inside Solitude’s Blue Palace, exploit a glitch to access a chest with mage-oriented items, selling them for additional gold.
