The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Perk Cheats

Perk Ids, Player.Addperk and How to Reset Perks Using Console Commands

At the moment, there is no simple cheat to automatically reset all of your Perks in Skyrim. I actually prefer the system that is offered, however. With the cheat console, you can remove a Perk and recover a Perk point. It's better for those situations where you need only remove one point you regret spending. This page will teach you this process, and provide the Perk Ids you need to use the player.addperk perkid cheat to give your character any perk you want.

Unfortunately for Xbox 360 and PS3 players, the game doesn't include console cheats. There may be ways to mod it and enable the console, but that's beyond the scope of this article. PC players rejoice!. Not only is your game better looking, you also have more power over the world of Skyrim and your Dovahkiin. Now, let's learn the necessary console commands and Perk Ids to do this.

How to Open Skyrim's Cheat Console
Push the ~tilde key next to the 1 on your keyboard. This opens the console, where you can then type a command and press enter to activate a cheat. You can close it by pressing tilde again or escape.

Removing Perks with Skyrim's Cheat Console

Use The Help Command to Look Up PerkIDs
The commands to remove and add perks rely on you knowing the PerkID, like many similar cheats in Skyrim. To find the PerkID type Help and a word to search for. Some can be hard to find with one word, such as Novice Restoration - you'd get results for anything with the word novice in it, or the word restoration. Instead, put the specific perk name in quotes. Help "Novice Restoration" will give you only one result and the PerkID you need. You can use PageUP/PageDown to browse the list of results in the console. There is a full list of PerkIDs in Skyrim further down on this page.

Player.RemovePerk (PerkID)
In order to remove a perk, you need this command. Typing player.removeperk 000153D0 would remove Illusion Dual Casting. Now the perk is gone, but your perk point is not recovered. In order to do so...

Player.Addperk (PerkID)
If you've removed a perk, you have to manually place it elsewhere. There is no cheat to add a single perk point in Skyrim. Instead, use the list below or the help command to find the PerkID and use the player.addperk cheat with the number. Just be honest and only add the number you've removed. That is, unless you want an overpowered game. You should know if you're cheating hardcore that you need the prerequisites for a perk, so you might as well cheat and add them too...

Accidentally put a point on a perk I wasn't planning on using. I thought all hope was lost. Then, like a shining ray of hope, this article was found by searching google. Thanks for the tip!

Thank you sooo much! As I walked the mountains of Skyrim, a sudden depression came over me for I had stopped lying to myself about being happy with my decision to open up the "Speech" skill tree and finally let myself succumb to feelings of the deep regret.

I shan't have to fret about that any longer with this cheat. :)
Admin:
:)) I'm very glad to have helped solve your depression.

HEY! The apprentice level destruction code is incorrect, might want to change that! It is actually "c44bf" and NOT "c44b0". I found the correct code on a different website.
Admin:
The code is correct. Maybe you got the lines mixed up - c44b0 was nowhere on the page, although there is a 0 above c44bf...
