It doesn't matter, you can use major or minor skills, actually. All that matters is that the skills match the correct stats.
Update: Bhuric you don't waste bonuses, that was only true in Morrowind. In oblivion they carry over and in fact there is a note about that in the manual pg. 27.
You're right, I missed that (who reads manuals? ;)). I thought they kept the same system as Morrowind. That's both good and bad, actually, makes it so you don't lose out, but makes it harder to stack the skills properly.
Oh well, as I said, I switched 'em all to +5 for me anyway, so no worries.This comment was edited on Mar 28, 01:18.
