While selecting perks for my first two levels I've noticed that plenty of them state that they "Require: 30", for example, but didn't really have long enough last night to play around and find out what the perk required 30 of.

So what is it that perks require a certain value of?
Level in that skill?
Character level?
Something else?

It's points in that skill.

For example, to get Expert Illusion you need 75 Illusion.

  • Also note that in order to get more advanced perks, you need to first get the other ones in the "path."
