Alchemy description: +<mag> Speechcraft for <dur> seconds.
Enchanting description: +<mag> Speechcraft.

Fortify Persuasion, despite the name, increases your Speech skill level directly, not just your persuasion ability. Therefore, barter prices are affected by Fortify Persuasion, as well as covered by the separate Fortify Barter effect; see the effect for more details. However, because speech does not improve above 100 (i.e. speech above 100 affects prices as if it were speech 100), Fortify Persuasion ceases to improve prices at that point.


The following alchemy ingredient has a Fortify Persuasion effect, but cannot be used to make a potion due to lack of a second ingredient with the effect:


The following items use this effect but neither can be disenchanted:

The Amulet of Articulation also directly increases speech skill, but with a different effect named "Articulation".



  • Fortify Persuasion is one of the only randomly generated potion effects that isn't also an alchemy effect; the other being WaterwalkingDB. You can find or buy Fortify Persuasion potions, but you cannot make your own.
