Patch 1.9 Legendary skills?
How this exatly work? Bethesda Blog says "Legendary Skills – Skills of 100 can be made Legendary. This will reset the skill to 15, return its Perks and allow the skill to affect leveling again. This effectively removes the overall level cap."

This will come in Skyrim patch 1.9 but how it works? Is it just to remove level cap? Do you get some bonus setting skills to legendary or does it just refund perks and set skills 15 and weaken up your charracter temporarily?

This is impression I get from description.

I think it's similar to "Prestige Mode" in the Call of Duty multiplayer. You get a little icon that indicates which Legendary level it is at, and it resets the perks for that skill.

I'm actually ok with it. It is a completely optional feature [you have to select the Skill, and select "Legendary" status]. And it allows you to level up more easily once you get to a high level.

I do expect some pretty awesome mods from this new feature.
There could be mods that add new perk trees for a skill, depending on the Legendary tier you've obtained. Would be pretty neat.

If it's just you dumbing yourself down so that you can continue to level. Which considering how the community uncapper works (letting your skills go over 100), and works very well makes their way entirly stupid.

I'd be happy with maybe just a little "kicker" to the overall skill tree like all destruction does an extra 5% damage per legendary level or something

Try the beta and see for yourself.

I tried it out, but there wasn't any indication that the skill's effectiveness was still at 100. I lost all the perks (but was refunded the points), and as far as I could tell, the skill I chose (Enchanting) acted as though it was level 15.

What I'd like to know is that if I make my Sneak 15L (15-legendary), do I still have 100-ish stealth, or am I back to being seen everywhere?

I tried to get into the beta, it keeps asking me for a password. Am I doing something wrong?

Left click on the game in the menu, click properties, then look for beta, and opt into it. If it asks for a password, then probably sign in again.

Thanks, re-loging fixed it.

Whatever patch 1.9 is going to do, it's going to make my mods act all silly for a while until they get updated.

Yup. I hear the Unofficial Patches may go wonky with the 1.9 Patch; considering both fix a lot of the same issues.

Oh dear.

I see lots of bugs on the horizon. I got the mod to remove helmets as a requirement, I expect that will break, the uncapper will probably break.

But at least the naked messanger is fixed, that was always creapy.

Updates on the bethesda part aren't for mods, including their own DLCs'. Who ever made the mods have to make updates of their mods for the Bethesda updates.

For sure on the naked messenger. I wanted to kill them everytime they showed up in their underwear.

On the one hand, infinite leveling and that's cool!

On the other hand...why in Azura's name would I want my skills set back to 15?! I busted my ♥♥♥ getting one-handed to 100! That's gonna make it useless at level 50!
