I've maxed out my character's attributes, but still have a few levels' worth of major skill points to earn. When I try to level up, I get a message saying perfection cannot be improved upon, no level up dialog and the level up icon remains in the HUD. Can I still level up somehow?

what platform? are you opposed to console commands? – Colin D Feb 19 '13 at 19:50
@ColinD PC and no, I'm not. I hope the answer will cover all platforms. – kotekzot Feb 19 '13 at 19:52
What level are you? – Mandemon Feb 20 '13 at 11:06
@Mandemon 46, why? – kotekzot Feb 20 '13 at 11:07
Wondered if you had hit the insane level cap of 255. Clearly not. After checking around, you can't because once attributes hit the max game won't allow you to level up anymore. Still looking if there is a way around this, a console command or mod. – Mandemon Feb 20 '13 at 11:16

If your attributes are all at maximum, the game won't allow you to level up any further, giving you the message you received.

Temporary solution is to use a mod to increase the attribute caps:

advlevel acts the same as sleeping, I get the message about perfection, my level stays the same and the level up icon is still present in the HUD. – kotekzot Feb 20 '13 at 12:04
Then it's mods or advskill. – Mandemon Feb 20 '13 at 16:32
How is advskill supposed to help? I've already earned a level up fairly. – kotekzot Feb 20 '13 at 17:07
I think I got some stuff mixed up, let me see... Yeah, got stuff confused. In your case, it does not help. So that leaves mods. – Mandemon Feb 20 '13 at 17:19
Can't you just reduce the stats with a modding command? And then raise them back when levelling up? – Ids Feb 22 '13 at 5:24
