"I am saying the the xp you earn from leveling a perk that has been reset seems like its been cut in half compared to a perk that hasn't been reset".
Personally, I've mastered a skill seven times and I'm level 35 for it at the moment (level 65 overall) and it doesn't feel like that to me. It does feel that resetting and doing the first few levels doesn't help much once your overall level gets up there,
but that's nothing new. Working on a skill you haven't touched feels exactly the same way.
I have reset my smithing perk twice lol and my archery and sneak perk once but it seems you only get about half of the xp as you usually get if you going through the perk for the first time because I was at level 56
when I reset my smithing perk and I only gain like 3 levels by the time I max it out again still fun tho lol.
This should be interesting. Since none of my old saves were worth a dump. I would love to see if anyone actually got to do this from an old save. All my skills went back to the beginning with the new start. It may be awhile before I can use the new feature.
