There are a total of 251 perks.

Path of Might – 91

  • Smithing: 10
  • Heavy Armor: 12
  • Block: 13
  • Two-handed: 19
  • One-handed: 21
  • Archery: 16

Path of Shadow – 74

  • Light Armor: 10
  • Sneak: 13
  • Lockpicking: 11
  • Pickpocket: 12
  • Speech: 13
  • Alchemy: 15

Path of Sorcery – 86

  • Illusion: 13
  • Conjuration: 16
  • Destruction: 17
  • Restoration: 13
  • Alteration: 14
  • Enchanting: 13

There are also a number of other abilities that function more or less like perks, found by completing certain quests or objectives. These are free: you don't have spend points on them.
