Is there a way to remove activated perks in skyrim? I know the console command to add them, but I just want to rearrange my skill points without becoming overpowered. I unlocked some stupid perks that I never use or will use and I don't want to do 38 levels again, to solve it the fair way. Anyone knows a solution? Thanks


The console command is:

player.removeperk <perkid>

You'll need to know the perk ID for whichever perk it is you want to remove. The UESP pages for each skill tree list the perk ID's, but there's also a good script down at the bottom of this page which, if run, will remove all perks. However, looking at the file in a text editor will show you an itemized list of all the perks and their ID's.

    I'm pretty sure not all perks are removed "cleanly" (Think Bloody Mess from Fallout 3), and sometimes you will need to save/reload or restart the games for some changes to take effect. – kotekzot May 3 '12 at 14:41
  • @kotekzot, I didn't run into that problem myself, but perhaps I didn't remove a problematic perk. It wouldn't surprise me if there were unintended consequences, however. +1 for the cautionary tale. – agent86 May 3 '12 at 14:47
