Skill level and character experienceEdit

For each level a skill gains, The Dragonborn gains an amount of character experience (XPcharacter) equal to the new level of the skill. This is true for all skills and all skill levels. The initial value of the XPcharacter is 0.

ExamplesEdit

Question 1 If Alchemy levels from level 21 to level 24, how much XPcharacter The Dragonborn gains?
Answer 1 Alchemy gains 3 levels. The first level-up (to 22) brings 22 XPcharacter, the second level-up 23 and the third 24 XPcharacter. In total The Dragonborn gains 22 + 23 + 24 = 69 XPcharacter.
Question 2 To what level must The Dragonborn raise Pickpocket, if he wants to gain 250 XPcharacter by only leveling Pickpocket that is currently at level 15?
Answer 2 Using table 1 above, we see that leveling Pickpocket from 15 to 16 brings 16 XPcharacter, level 17 brings another 17 XPcharacter, which makes 33 in total so far, etc.. Following the table further down we'll see that The Dragonborn crosses his 250 XPcharacter target when he levels Pickpocket up to level 27.
Question 3 If a brand new Dragonborn levels all of his skills to level 25, how much XPcharacter would he have then?
Answer 3 Each Dragonborn starts with 12 skills at level 15, 5 at level 20 and 1 at level 25. Leveling all skills to 25 results in 12 * 205 + 5 * 115 + 1 * 0 = 2,460 + 775 = 3,235 XPcharacter.

Character experience and character levelEdit

If the amount of XPcharacter passes a certain limit, the character levels up. The limit to reach character level n is 12.5*n2 + 62.5*n - 75 XPcharacter.

ExamplesEdit

Question 4 If a brand new Dragonborn gains 3,235 XPcharacter, what character level would he become?

Answer 4 In table 2 we'll find that 3,225 XPcharacter = character level 13.
Question 5 If a Dragonborn levels all his skills to level 100, how much XPcharacter would he have?
Answer 5 This question is similar to question 3, the answer is 12 * 4,930 + 5 * 4,840 + 1 * 4,725 = 59,160 + 24,200 + 4725 = 88,085 XPcharacter.
Question 6 If a Dragonborn levels all his skills to level 100, what character level would he be?
Answer 6 Using table 4 we'll find the answer is level 81.
Question 7 How much XPcharacter is required to reach character level 252?
Answer 7 Using the formula of Character experience and character level, character level 252 requires = 12.5 * 252 * 252 + 62.5 * 252 - 75 = 809,475 XPcharacter.

Question 8 How much XPcharacter a Dragonborn gains by making 1 skill legendary and level up to level 100 again?
Answer 8 Using table 1 we'll find 4,930 XPcharacter
Question 9 After reaching level 100 for all his skills, how often must he make a skill legendary and level that skill up to 100 to reach character level 252?
Answer 9 From the answer above we learn:
  • Level 252 requires 809,475 XPcharacter, refer to answer 5c.
  • All skills at level 100, brings 88,085 XPcharacter, refer to answer 5a.
  • Each re-leveling of a skill brings 4,930 XPcharacter, refer to answer 5d.

Combining this learns us that: to bridge the gap between all skills at level 100 and character level 252, The Dragonborn, must make a skill legendary: (809,475 - 88,085) / 4,930 = 147 times.

VerificationEdit

Personal experienceEdit

I keep track of all my skill level and character level-ups. Although I'm only character level 30, none of these level changes violated these rules.

Level 81 capEdit

These rules support what I read about the level cap that was removed with the patch 1.9, refer to question and answer 5 and 6.
