There never was a level cap. The only reason it only goes to 81 is because of how the leveling system works, not because of any cap.
The only way to extend it would be to add even more skills to use, not just any simple patch.
[/quote]The way according to the Bethesda Blog it is going to work is if a Skill is at 100 it becomes Legendary and can be "reset" this with allow it to gain Skill again and further raise the Characters Level. At least that's
the way it's described.
They should have done that from the beginning. That was legitimately my main gripe with the game, i hated maxing out my main skills and then having to grind low level skills just to level up. If that is true, it will be awesome.
"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."
I hate to use a cod analogy, but it's basically like 'prestiging' a skill. It just allows players to level up w/o having to use skills they have no interest in. Also, I think it'll help prevent players from becoming 'overpowered' & the game from getting
too easy. The best part about the feature, imo, is that you don't have to use it if you think it's a bad idea...
