Resetting your skill doesn't reset your damage to noob levels because you still have your uber gear... You're still powerful, just not as much as you were previously. That is, until you level up the skill again and gain some levels and end up being MORE powerful than you started.

Your skills wouldn't end up more powerful, though. They'd be exactly the same as they were before you reset them. You'd have some extra health or magicka, and that'd be it.

And I think you need to have a look at your uber gear and see how much of that damages comes from skill. At skill 15, the difference between a longbow and a daedric bow is around 12 points of damage. It isn't until you get the skill up and get the 5 perks to get the damage up that it really becomes impressive.

Look, it's up to you how you use this skill reset business. You can reset a bow skill or a sneak skill on their own, and still be pretty uber, or both and have some challenge again. Or you can decide you don't want to reset anything at all, doesn't matter to me or anyone else.

Oh, I don't mean to imply that it's bad they put it in or something. It's awesome they put the option in there. I just wish there'd be some kind of purpose in resetting your skills. (like, the reset and Legendary status give it a +10% bonus or something.)

Merely gaining levels (which is going to take FOREVER anyway. I think 80 to 81 already took like 400 skill increases) doesn't really seem that big of a deal.


Everyone seems to be focusing on resetting your combat skills...
Why wouldn't you just reset the easily trainable crafting skills -- and then you can use the perks gained from those to fill out your other trees?
I don't powergame enough in Skyrim to know how the level up formula works exactly... but pretty sure you could just keep increasing in level by resetting nothing but the crafting skills? I mean at some point you eventually hit a spot where you've got nothing really to spend money on anyway.
