Is there a way to "respec" your talents?

#1 Posted by TomShreds (53 posts) -


Sorry for the WoW language here but I was wondering if there is a way to simply relearn all your talents? Like forgetting all of them and selecting them all over again?

Thank you!

hope there is some way, at the cost of gold

There isn't that I'm aware of. It's a mod I'm waiting for though, and will probably be out soon. I definitely want it because I couldn't choose between magic or archery so now I have talents in both

There's probably a console command too, but I don't know it.

Someone more knowledgeable will most likely correct me, but no you can't. As far as I know you couldn't do that in Oblivion. However. In Morrowind you could find a one time use ancient cup thingy that altered your stats. Or something weird. Very vague memories of that, I might be wrong. If there is a way in Skyrim to do it then the solution is very obscure and fairly hard. Seeing as that's how the Scrolls games roll.

Wait for a mod to do it, doubt it will take too long.

You cant. There are console commands for adding/removing points to and from perks. As others have stated mods for that will be out soon. As will a list of some useful commands.

Thanks for those very helpful answers. I hope someday a mod will come out for this, it would be very cool to be able to try and test some specs easiliy instead of having to reroll :P

All I can say is....I'm so thankful I'm playing this on PC. Every perk I pick seems awesome, but also like a mistake.

You get somthing like 70 perks, a couple of missteps is not going to hirt

@Dagbiker: You actually get 50 perks, but yeah, it's not a big deal.
#12 Posted by SmasheControllers (2951 posts) -

@TheDudeOfGaming: Pretty sure it's 70, if you master everything you'll get to about level 70. 50 is only the soft level cap.

Let's just hope that we get more perk points when the DLC rolls out.

you're all wrong, you get 80 perks, one per level up.

And yes, there's a console command to reset your perks. Look it up on UESP.

yall can suck my nuts

to remove a perk. It's not a full reset and if you want to completely redo all your perks it takes a bit of time since you have to do it one perk at a time, but it's better than nothing.

There are mods that let you reset your perks without console commands.

This is a 10 month old thread. (necro'd by a 1 post user.)

You know, shortly after the game was released.

And people did not yet have concrete information, and wiki's were unpopulated.

I tried to be gentle to save further embarrassment ^.^

Given the number of views this topic gets, it was only a matter of time before someone bumped it.

Man, people need to look at dates before they post.
