If multiple items have the same enchantment, does the bonus stack?

  • Certain enchantments can be applied to multiple items, such as both an amulet and a ring. If I wear two items that grant the same bonus, does the bonus stack? (e.g. if I wear an amulet of +12% Alchemy and a ring of +12% Alchemy, do I get +24% to Alchemy?)

    Also, do some enchantments stack while others don't?

  • Instances of Fortify X (Where X is "Conjuration, Smithing, One-handed, etc.") stack if they're from separate items.

    You cannot use the "Double Enchantment" perk in the enchanting tree to double-enchant a single item with the same enchantment, twice.

    Unlike in Oblivion, stacking skills above 100 actually increases their effectiveness.

    Well, it *should* increase their effectiveness. However, there's evidence that this is bugged, at the very least for Pickpocketing, and possibly for Enchanting and Smithing as well under some circumstances.

    @LessPop_MoreFizz you're referring to > 100 skill only, yes?

    Yes, only for >100.

    I tested this with multiple items of Fortify Smithing, and confirmed that it works. Adding the second item allowed a weapon to be upgraded further than one item. Do non-skill enhancements stack (e.g. Fortify Carry Weight, Fortify Health, Fortify Magicka Regen, Resist Magic)?

    @JonathanDrain yes.

    +1. Might be worth noting that there are multiple Resist Magic enchantments, so you can put both of those on one item and it stacks.
