nm... i realized that while you can use the star an infinite amount of times you cant store an infinite amount of souls on it :/
anyway... i basically want to know if anybody has any tips or suggestions to make these last 14 enchanting points go by as quickly and pain free as possible.
As far as I know (by looking up the guide) there is no quest reward bonus, shrine, standing stone or item of any kind that improves the actual enchantment. The max % increase you can get is 157%
100% from the perk "Enchanter" 5/5
25% from the perk "Insightful Enchanter"
32% from the best potion that can be made
Getting the enchanting skill to 100 obviously will be good too but I don't know how to measure that %?
As for the last 14 levels, just keep doing what you're doing. If you got plenty of money just buy the petty and lesser filled up gems from the guy in Dragonsreach as described in the guide above.
Also I would recommend you disenchant that soul trap warhammer and then make your own bow, improve it best you can and then enchant it with soul trap. Move the slider over to the left for a soul trap of only 1 second as that's all you'll need to capture your own souls. This is only if you don't want to just buy them.
Oh, and don't forget as you're enchanting all those daggers/bracers, to enchant it with the most expensive enchantment you have. Skill progression is based on $$$ it's worth.
"The Mage" Standing Stone makes your magic skills (including enchanting) level up 20% faster. This lasts until you activate another stone.
If you're "Well Rested" you get another 10% (15% if you sleep in same house as spouse) this lasts only 8 hours.
