Vokrii - Minimalistic Perks of Skyrim

❱❱❱ Features

  • Vokrii overhauls all perk trees for a total of 276 new perks.
  • Much more vanilla-like than many popular perk overhauls.
  • New perks are aimed at making a wider variety of builds viable without a major balance impact.
  • Lightweight scripts, no save bloat.
  • Can be installed during your playthrough.

❱❱❱ Perks

Note that Vokrii adds additional scaling to certain skills. For instance, the effectiveness of magic schools now scales with skill level, slightly improving magnitude and duration.

Alchemy

Scaling: Levels in Alchemy improve potions and poisons you make by up to 50%.
Experience: Gain Alchemy experience by making potions and poisons.

The tree contains 15 perks for a total of 18 perk points.

  • 20 - Physician: Potions you make that restore Health, Magicka or Stamina are 25% stronger.

  • 90 - Gourmet: Vendors of rare alchemical ingredients may sell Jarrin Root, used to make deadly poisons.
  • 100 - Double Toil and Trouble: Twice as many potions are created.

Alteration

Scaling: Levels in Alteration increase the duration of Alteration spells and effects by up to 40%, and reduce their cost by up to 40%.
Experience: Gain Alteration experience by using Alteration spells effectively.

The tree contains 17 perks for a total of 24 perk points.

Tldr: Alteration spells last slightly longer. There are also perks for robe wearers, battlemages (weapon and spell) and offensive telekinesis use. Other than that, the tree comprises mostly self buffs in vanilla and this remains the case in Vokrii.

  • 0 - Alteration Mastery: Cast Alteration spells for 0.5% less Magicka per level of Alteration.
  • 20 - Alteration Dual Casting: Dual casting an Alteration spell overcharges its effects, increasing power and casting cost.
  • 20 - Mage Armor (3): Protection spells like Stoneflesh are 100/150/200% stronger if not wearing armor.

  • 100 - Ritualist: Two-handed spells can be cast while moving, at 25% reduced strength.

Archery

Scaling: Levels in Archery improve your damage with ranged weapons by up to 50%.
Experience: Gain Archery experience by inflicting damage with ranged weapons.

The tree contains 16 perks for a total of 20 perk points.

Tldr: This tree mainly adds weakening and disabling effects in order to keep its average damage output on par with vanilla. Potential damage is slightly higher than vanilla thanks to more useful critical strikes (the vanilla critical strike perk adds an average of 3.6 points of damage per shot with a daedric bow) and the option for bonus damage at very long and short ranges. To ensure balance, all ways to increase damage beyond vanilla are situational and player skill based.

  • 0 - Archery Mastery: Ranged weapons do 1% more damage and 5% more critical damage per level of Archery.
  • 20 - Far Shot (2): Ranged weapons do up to 20/40% more damage to targets beyond 60 feet, based on distance.
  • 20 - Point Blank Shot (2): Ranged weapons do up to 20/40% more damage to targets within 20 feet, based on proximity.
  • 30 - Eagle Eye: Pressing Block while aiming will zoom in your view.
  • 40 - Impaling Shot Ranged weapons wound the living for 15 seconds, causing 10 points of bleed damage per second while running.
  • 40 - Breaching Shot: Ranged weapons knock the shield out of an opponent's hands if they are blocking.
  • 40 - Steady Aim (2): Pressing Block while aiming will zoom in your view and slow time by 25/50%.
  • 50 - Hunter's Discipline: Recover twice as many arrows and bolts from dead bodies.
  • 50 - Power Shot: Ranged weapons have 25% chance to stagger most targets.
  • 60 - Lion's Arrow (2): Dual cast a projectile spell out of combat to imprint it. Fully drawn bow shots trigger a copy of the spell at 60/100% power.
  • 60 - Ranger: Can move at full speed with a drawn bow.
  • 70 - Quick Shot: Can draw a bow or reload a crossbow 30% faster.
  • 80 - Arrow to the Knee: Ranged weapons knock targets down if they are sprinting, inflicting a critical strike for 2 times critical damage.
  • 80 - Gore: Ranged weapons interrupt power attacks, knocking the attacker back and inflicting a critical strike for 2 times critical damage.
  • 90 - Hunter's Focus: Can't be staggered by power attacks or bashes while drawing a bow or holding a shot.
  • 100 - Pinning Shot: Ranged weapons slow targets by 10% per hit for 15 seconds.

Block

Scaling: Levels in Block improve block scaling from item quality by up to 150%, and increase bashing damage by up to 400%.
Experience: Gain Block experience by blocking damage, and by bashing opponents. Using a shield grants more experience than using a weapon.

The tree contains 15 perks for a total of 16 perk points.

Tldr: Block effectiveness for shields is on par with vanilla, while weapons get a perk to increase their block effectiveness to useful levels and Shield Charge has a cooldown per target so you can't knock down opponents permanently. Compared to vanilla, the tree has similar perks but contains more disabling effects and a torch bash perk.

  • 0 - Block Mastery: Blocking is 0.5% more effective per level of Block.
  • 20 - Deflect Arrows: Arrows do 25% less damage while blocking. Arrows that hit a shield do no damage.
  • 20 - Power Bash: Able to do a power bash by holding down Attack while blocking.
  • 30 - Unwavering Defense: Blocking an attack damages the attacker's Stamina by 15 points.
  • 30 - Weapon Block: Blocking with weapons is 25% more effective.
  • 40 - Quick Reflexes: Time slows down if you are blocking during an enemy's power attack.
  • 40 - Torch Bash: Bashing with a torch deals ten times as much fire damage and causes living opponents to flee in panic.
  • 50 - Deadly Bash (2): Bashing deals five/fifteen times as much damage.
  • 50 - Elemental Protection: Blocking with a shield reduces elemental damage taken by 50%.
  • 60 - Poke the Dragon: Blocking an attack has 15% chance to stagger the attacker, exposing them to a critical strike counterattack within 3 seconds for 2 times critical damage.
  • 70 - Block Runner: Can move at full speed while blocking.
  • 80 - Mocking Blow: Power bashing taunts the opponent, forcing them to attack you and reducing their attack damage by 15%, fading over 10 seconds.
  • 90 - Dragon Tail: Bashing to interrupt a power attack has 30% chance to knock the attacker down, potentially disarming them.
  • 90 - Shield Charge: Able to sprint with a shield raised, knocking opponents down for 15 points of Stamina per second.
  • 100 - Stoneheart: Can't be staggered by power attacks and bashes while blocking.

Conjuration

Scaling: Levels in Conjuration increase the duration of Conjuration spells and effects by up to 40%, and reduce their cost by up to 40%.
Experience: Gain Conjuration experience by using Conjuration spells effectively.

The tree contains 18 perks for a total of 21 perk points.

Tldr: The perk tree focusses primarily on making underpowered playstyles more viable, such as reanimation, atronachs (as opposed to Dremora Lords) and bound weapons. To avoid a damage race between bound weapons and smithed weapons which would leave one or the other as strictly worse than the alternative, bound weapons instead get a lot of conjuration themed utility, such as an atronach synergy and a deadly non-elemental burn that scales with conjuration duration.

  • 0 - Conjuration Mastery: Cast Conjuration spells for 0.5% less Magicka per level of Conjuration.
  • 20 - Conjuration Dual Casting: Dual casting a Conjuration spell overcharges its effects, increasing duration and casting cost.
  • 20 - Mystic Binding: Bound Weapon spells now create Mystic Weapons instead, which deal more damage.
  • 30 - Atromancy: Summoned daedra and creatures last twice as long.
  • 30 - Necromancy: Summoned and raised undead last twice as long.
  • 30 - Soul Stealer: Bound weapons cast Soul Trap on targets for 5 seconds.
  • 40 - Oblivion Binding: Bound weapons banish conjured daedra, deal 100 bonus damage to other daedra and turn raised undead.
  • 40 - Rift Summoner (2): Can summon three times as far away/at any distance.
  • 50 - Ghoul Frenzy: Raised undead are created with 150% extra attack speed and 100% extra movement speed, fading over 60 seconds.
  • 50 - Oblivion Stone (2): Summoned daedra and creatures get 100/200 points of armor and 25/50% magic resistance.
  • 60 - Hollow Binding: Bound weapons cut through flesh and spirit, reducing magic resistance by 25% for 5 seconds.
  • 60 - Grand Conjurer (2): Can reanimate, banish or command targets up to 15 levels higher/of any level.
  • 70 - Blood Zombie: Summoned and raised undead absorb 10 points of Health per second from opponents in melee range.
  • 70 - Elemental Potency: Atronach summoning spells now call higher level Potent Atronachs with improved elemental attacks.
  • 80 - Void Brand: Bound weapons drain 30 points of Magicka and Stamina per second for 5 seconds. When both are depleted, drains Health instead.
  • 90 - Elemental Conflux: While near an allied atronach, gain a 20% bonus to matching elemental spells and effects, and 50 matching elemental damage to bound weapons.
  • 90 - Necromaster: Undead raised with Dread Zombie or Dead Thrall get bonus Health, Magicka and Stamina based on their level, and you can give them items.
  • 100 - Twin Souls: You can summon or reanimate an additional minion.

Destruction

Scaling: Levels in Destruction increase the power of Destruction spells and effects by up to 40%, and reduce their cost by up to 40%.
Experience: Gain Destruction experience by using Destruction spells effectively.

The tree contains 18 perks for a total of 24 perk points.

Tldr: The skill now gains significant damage scaling with level, balanced out by a slight nerf to the elemental damage perks. The net total is about 30% more damage, making up for the general weakness of vanilla Destruction magic without being a blatant cheat. A perk exists to reduce elemental resistances, making especially frost mages more capable. Underused spell types such as master spells and wall spells get their own buffs.

  • 0 - Destruction Mastery: Cast Destruction spells for 0.5% less Magicka per level of Destruction.
  • 20 - Destruction Dual Casting: Dual casting a Destruction spell overcharges its effects, increasing power and casting cost.
  • 30 - Augmented Flames (2): Fire spells and effects are 20/40% more powerful.
  • 30 - Augmented Frost (2): Frost spells and effects are 20/40% more powerful.
  • 30 - Augmented Shock (2): Shock spells and effects are 20/40% more powerful.
  • 30 - Raw Power (3): Non-elemental Destruction spells and effects are 10/20/30% more powerful.

  • 50 - Deafening Shock: Shock spells have 20% chance to silence targets for 2 seconds.
  • 60 - Hethoth's Disjunction: All opponents affected by a Destruction cloak get 25% weakness to that element.
  • 60 - Impact: Projectile based Destruction spells have 30% chance to stagger their targets when dual cast.
  • 70 - Scorched Earth: Fire spells burn their victims to cinders, leaving a pyre that ignites opponents, dealing extra damage for 10 seconds.
  • 70 - Winter's Grasp: Frost spells freeze targets below 20% Health in a block of ice for 5 seconds.
  • 70 - Crackling Sphere: Shock spells have 20% chance to levitate targets for 2 seconds.
  • 80 - Elemental Barrier: Destruction walls and cloaks deal 25% more damage, and the damage persists for 5 seconds.
  • 90 - Elemental Shield: Destruction cloaks grant 50% resistance to their element.
  • 100 - Hellstorm: Deal double elemental damage to targets that are ignited, frozen, silenced or levitated.

Enchanting

Scaling: Levels in Enchanting allows you to enchant items up to 100% better.
Experience: Gain Enchanting experience by enchanting items, or by wielding a staff in combat.

The tree contains 16 perks for a total of 20 perk points.

Tldr: Subpar enchantments (those without a 25% perk in vanilla) and items (clothing) are more effective. Popular enchantments on popular items are on par with vanilla. Chaos Damage is weaker. Enchantment bonuses are available at a lower level so Enchanting is not useless in the early game. Staves are more powerful and level Enchanting. Scrolls are more accessible.

  • 0 - Enchanting Mastery: New enchantments are 1% stronger per level of Enchanting.
  • 20 - Power Stone (3): Staves are 25/50/100% stronger, and an equipped staff improves other weapon enchantments by 25/50/100%.
  • 20 - Soul Squeezer: Soul gems replenish 250 extra charge when used to recharge weapons.
  • 30 - Weapon Enchanter: New enchantments placed on weapons are 25% stronger.
  • 30 - Armor Enchanter: New enchantments placed on armor pieces or clothing are 25% stronger.
  • 40 - Scroll Sage (3): Scrolls are 100/150/200% stronger.
  • 40 - Soul Siphon: Death blows with enchanted weapons to creatures trap 5% of the victim's soul, recharging the weapon. Does not apply to staves.
  • 50 - Mana Stone: Staves cost 50% less charge, and an equipped staff reduces the charge cost of other weapon enchantments by 50%.
  • 50 - Scroll Hunter: 10% chance to find a random scroll on the corpses of people you kill.
  • 60 - Soul Enchanter: New enchantments placed on weapons have 1000 extra charge.
  • 60 - Thunderstruck: Weapon enchantments are 50% stronger when delivered by a power attack.
  • 70 - Mana Shield: Take 25% less damage from attacks if you have a staff equipped and no shield.
  • 70 - Regalia Enchanter: New enchantments placed on necklaces, robes, hoods and circlets are 15% stronger.
  • 80 - Staff Recharge: After using a staff, the spent charge regenerates at a rate of 5 points per second.
  • 90 - Spider Hunter: 5% chance to find a random imbued spider on the corpses of people you kill.
  • 100 - Extra Effect: Can place two enchantments upon the same item.

Heavy Armor

Scaling: Levels in Heavy Armor increase the armor rating of Heavy Armor pieces by up to 40%.
Experience: Gain Heavy Armor experience by taking damage while wearing Heavy Armor pieces, or by being in combat while wearing at least 2 Heavy Armor pieces whether or not you get hit.

The tree contains 13 perks for a total of 14 perk points.

Tldr: Armor rating is slightly lower due to a nerf to Matching Heavy Set, but there are several other damage mitigating perks that reduce incoming weapon perks, incoming stagger, or incapacitate opponents that hit you.

  • 0 - Heavy Armor Mastery: Armor rating of Heavy Armor pieces increased by 1% per level of Heavy Armor.
  • 20 - Cushioned (2): You take half/no damage from falling if wearing all Heavy Armor.
  • 30 - Battle Fatigue: Take up to 20% less attack damage from opponents with low Stamina if wearing all Heavy Armor.
  • 30 - Heavy Armor Fit: Armor rating of Heavy Armor pieces increased by 15% if wearing all Heavy Armor.
  • 40 - Face of Death: Other Heavy Armor perks no longer require a helmet. Armor rating of Heavy Armor pieces increased by 20% if not wearing a helmet.
  • 40 - Immovable Object: Taking an incoming hit in all Heavy Armor has 10% chance to stagger the attacker.
  • 50 - Heavy Armor Training: Heavy Armor weighs nothing and doesn't slow you down when worn.
  • 60 - Reap the Whirlwind: Taking an incoming hit in all Heavy Armor grants 15% extra attack damage and critical damage against the attacker for 5 seconds.
  • 60 - Tower of Strength: Take 25% less damage from power attacks and bashes if wearing all Heavy Armor.
  • 70 - Matching Heavy Set: Armor rating of Heavy Armor pieces increased by 15% if wearing a matched set of 3 or more Heavy Armor pieces.
  • 80 - Elemental Defense: Take 15% less elemental damage if wearing all Heavy Armor.
  • 90 - Glancing Blows: Immune to weapon specific perks such as Denting Blows and Mortal Wounds if wearing all Heavy Armor.
  • 100 - Face of the Mountain: Taking an incoming power attack or bash in all Heavy Armor always staggers the attacker with 25% chance to knock them down.

Illusion

Scaling: Levels in Illusion increase the duration of Illusion spells and effects by up to 40%. and reduce their cost by up to 40%.
Experience: Gain Illusion experience by using Illusion spells effectively.

The tree contains 15 perks for a total of 18 perk points.

Tldr: The vanilla tree consists mainly of level cap buffs. These are merged into Animage, creating space for other special effects that are necessary to make an Illusion specialist viable, such as the ability to actually kill the last remaining opponent after Fury without resorting to direct damage. Master of the Mind is available significantly sooner to ensure Illusion mages are not shut out of Dwemer dungeons for most of their lifespan.

  • 0 - Illusion Mastery: Cast Illusion spells for 0.5% less Magicka per level of Illusion.
  • 20 - Illusion Dual Casting: Dual casting an Illusion spell overcharges its effects, increasing power and casting cost.
  • 20 - Animage (3): Mind affecting spells and effects work on creatures and people up to 10/20/40 levels higher, and other targets up to 5/10/20 levels higher.
  • 30 - Neverworld: Calm spells have 50% chance to persist for 15 seconds when broken.
  • 40 - Terror: Fear spells cause opponents to drop their weapon.
  • 50 - Iron Maiden: Fury spells inflict 20 damage whenever the target attacks.
  • 50 - Quiet Casting: All spells and shouts from any school of magic are silent to others.
  • 60 - Lamb to the Slaughter: Calm spells reduce armor by 100 points and magic resistance by 25%.
  • 60 - Splendor: Rally spells improve the target's attributes by an additional 50 points.
  • 70 - Master of the Mind (2): Mind affecting spells work on undead, daedra and automatons at half/full duration.
  • 70 - Paralyzing Fear: Fear spells have 25% chance to compel their targets to remain motionless.
  • 80 - Enrage: Fury spells cause targets to deal 50% more attack damage, except when they are attacking the caster.
  • 90 - Spirit of War: Rally spells manifest spectral images of allied targets in combat. The illusions have 40% Health and fight for you until the spell wears off.
  • 90 - Blur: While invisible, you are ethereal and cannot be harmed if you are not attacking or casting a spell.
  • 100 - Mind Thrall: Can activate a person under a mind affecting spell or effect to take control, forcing them to follow you and fight for you until released.

Light Armor

Scaling: Levels in Light Armor increase the armor rating of Light Armor pieces by up to 40%.
Experience: Gain Light Armor experience by taking damage while wearing Light Armor pieces, by being in combat while wearing at least 2 Light Armor pieces whether or not you get hit, or by hitting opponents with fists.

The tree contains 14 perks for a total of 17 perk points.

Tldr: Armor rating is slightly lower due to a nerf to Matching Light Set, but mobility as well as damage are increased in Light Armor, differentiating Light Armor much more from Heavy Armor. It is now clearly a suboptimal choice for face tank builds, but a superior choice for agile fighters and ranged attackers. Monk characters will also find several powerful unarmed combat perks in this tree, such as damage scaling, cost reduction and crowd control.

  • 0 - Light Armor Mastery: Armor rating of Light Armor pieces increased by 1% per level of Light Armor.
  • 20 - Agility: Regenerate an additional 2% of your maximum Stamina per second if wearing all Light Armor.
  • 20 - Iron Fist (3): Deal extra unarmed damage equal to 5/15/30% of current Stamina if both hands are empty, gaining Light Armor experience.
  • 30 - Light Armor Fit: Armor rating of Light Armor pieces increased by 15% if wearing all Light Armor.
  • 40 - Keen Senses: Other Light Armor perks no longer require a helmet. Armor rating of Light Armor pieces increased by 20% if not wearing a helmet.
  • 40 - Windrunner: Move 10% faster if wearing all Light Armor.
  • 50 - Light Armor Training: Light Armor weighs nothing and doesn't slow you down when worn.
  • 60 - Flurry of Blows (2): Power attacks with two empty hands cost 25/50% less Stamina and have a 50% chance to stagger opponents, potentially disarming them.
  • 60 - Wardancer: Your attacks deal 15% more damage and critical damage in all Light Armor. Taking an unblocked hit disables this effect for 10 seconds.
  • 70 - Matching Light Set: Armor rating of Light Armor pieces increased by 15% if wearing a matched set of 3 or more Light Armor pieces.
  • 80 - Evasive Sprint: While sprinting in all Light Armor, incoming attacks and spells always miss and weight does not affect Stamina drain.
  • 80 - Tough Hide: Wearing all Light Armor grants 40% Poison Resist and Disease Resist.
  • 90 - Ki Strike: Power attacks with two empty hands deal 60 points of random elemental damage.
  • 100 - Untouchable: Move an additional 10% faster in combat in all Light Armor. Taking an unblocked hit disables this effect for 10 seconds.

(You don't need to wear Light Armor to benefit from, or gain experience from, unarmed perks. They are in Light Armor because the vanilla fist damage perk is in Heavy Armor, which is a lot more of a stretch considering the kind of character build that wants unarmed perks.)

Lockpicking

Scaling: Levels in Lockpicking increase the size of the opening position by up to 100%.
Experience: Gain Lockpicking experience by opening locks, by breaking lockpicks (or failing with the Skeleton Key), or by shutting down automatons.

The tree contains 12 perks for a total of 12 perk points.

Tldr: All vanilla lockpicking perks are in place, other than the Unbreakable perk because it makes all other perks redundant. The capstone perk Archaeologist was added, granting a very large boost to dungeon loot to reward investment into this tree. It can also disable automatons and even control an automaton as a permanent minion.

  • 0 - Lockpicking Mastery: Locks are 1% easier to pick per level of Lockpicking.
  • 20 - Looter: In most dungeons, chests contain up to 100 more gold and many other containers contain up to 10 more gold.
  • 30 - Quick Hands: Able to pick locks without others realizing that you are committing a crime.
  • 40 - Lockdown: Can lockpick a hostile automaton to shut it down, reducing Health to 1. Damaged automatons are easier to pick.
  • 50 - Wax Key: Picking a lock gives you a copy of its key if it has one.
  • 60 - Hotwire: Can lockpick an automaton under Lockdown to reprogram it, making it follow you and fight for you.
  • 60 - Treasure Hunter: In most dungeons, regular chests are 50% more likely to contain an additional weapon or armor piece.
  • 70 - Dungeon Master: Most traps deal half damage to you, and five times as much damage to others.
  • 80 - Lucky Guess: Pick starts much closer to the lock opening position.
  • 90 - Archaeologist: In most dungeons, special chests contain six additional weapons or armor pieces.
  • 90 - Overdrive: Hotwired automatons get 50% increased attack damage, 200 points of armor, and move 20% faster.
  • 100 - Lockmaster: Can bypass locks of Expert or lower level without using a key or manually picking the lock.

One-Handed

Scaling: Levels in One-Handed improve your damage with one-handed weapons by up to 50%.
Experience: Gain One-Handed experience by inflicting damage with one-handed weapons.

The tree contains 18 perks for a total of 23 perk points.

Tldr: Basic damage output is comparable to vanilla, but the power attack perk now scales with Stamina, encouraging Stamina investment and creating a new high damage, high Stamina, low Health build. The weapon specific perks are much more effective than in vanilla (where two out of three only ever added a few measly points of damage) but are also less universally applicable. Several new defensive perks and a dagger branch are added.

  • 0 - One-Handed Mastery: One-handed weapons do 1% more damage and 5% more critical damage per level of One-Handed.
  • 20 - Disciplined Fighter: One-handed power attacks cost 25% less Stamina.
  • 30 - Overpowering Assault (2): Swords reduce attack damage by 10/15% for 10 seconds.
  • 30 - Grievous Wounds (2): War axes wound the living for 10 seconds. Deal 10/15% more attack damage to wounded targets.
  • 30 - Denting Blows (2): Maces reduce armor by 100/150 points for 10 seconds.
  • 30 - Fangs (2): Daggers deal 10/20% more damage if the target is poisoned or bleeding.
  • 30 - Dual Flurry (2): Dual wielding attacks are 20/35% faster.
  • 40 - Furious Strength: One-handed power attacks do 0.1% more damage per point of Stamina. Unlocks decapitations.
  • 50 - Valorous Charge: Can do a one-handed sprinting power attack for up to 50% more damage and critical damage to high Health opponents.
  • 60 - Dual Savagery: Dual wielding power attacks deal 50% more damage and stagger 50% more.
  • 60 - Crater Maker: One-handed forwards power attacks have 25% chance to knock targets down, inflicting a critical strike for 2 times critical damage.
  • 70 - Execute: Power attacks with a sword execute targets below 20% Health, inflicting a critical strike for 10 times critical damage.
  • 70 - Shieldbiter: Power attacks with a war axe smash through a shield, inflicting a critical strike for 5 times critical damage and forcing them to drop their shield.
  • 70 - Disrupting Strike: Power attacks with a mace interrupt spellcasting, inflicting a critical strike for 3 times critical damage and silencing the target for 5 seconds.
  • 70 - Spitting Cobra: Power attacks with daggers bleed the living for 30 seconds, inflicting a critical strike for 3 times critical damage.
  • 80 - Disarming Slash: One-handed sideways power attacks have 25% chance to disarm targets, inflicting a critical strike for 2 times critical damage.
  • 90 - Bladedancer: Take 50% less attack damage while power attacking with two weapons.
  • 100 - Victory Rush: Killing an opponent with a one-handed weapon replenishes 100 points of Stamina.

Pickpocket

Scaling: Levels in Pickpocket increase pickpocketing odds by up to 100%.
Experience: Gain Pickpocket experience by successfully pickpocketing items.

The tree contains 12 perks for a total of 14 perk points.

Tldr: The vanilla pickpocket perks are merged to reduce waste and filler perks. Get out of nonviolent crime bounties (the bane of a pickpocket). Steal people's gold without any risk of detection. Reverse pickpocketing is more viable thanks to a cursed coin you can slip in an opponent's pocket to bring doom upon them.

  • 0 - Pickpocket Mastery: Pickpocketing odds increased by 1% per level of Pickpocket.

Experience: Gain Speech experience by trading items, or by shouting (based on the cooldown of the shout).

The tree contains 15 perks for a total of 17 perk points.

Tldr: Because social perks have limited usefulness, the new capstone perk Private Stock allows you to just buy a variety of items from otherwise mundane vendors as a reward for investing into them.

The tree contains 17 perks for a total of 20 perk points.

Tldr: Much like the One-Handed tree, the basic perks are comparable to vanilla, but the power attack damage perk now scales with Stamina to differentiate high Stamina and high Health builds. The weapon specific perks are much more effective than the vanilla ones (where neither the bleed perk nor the critical strike perk has any measurable impact) and offer strong but situational incapacitating effects. Unlike the One-Handed tree, most other new perks are offensive in nature, cementing Two-Handed weapons as the "damage" option.

❱❱❱ Compatibility

❱❱❱ FAQ

Installation procedure: If your character is level 2 or higher, installing the mod will start a perk refund process. This can take up to several minutes and a message is displayed when the process is complete. If you are switching from another perk mod, follow the instructions in its mod description to refund your perk points before uninstalling.

Uninstallation procedure: Refund your perk points (see below) before uninstalling.

  • How do I refund my perk points (respec): Make the skill legendary or use the perk refund feature in Apocrypha. Cheat: Bring exactly 1337 gold (no more, no less) to a cooking pot and craft a Scroll of Legends, which can be consumed to instantly refund all perk points.
  • I meet all of the requirements for a perk but still can't put a point into it: You have another mod loaded below Vokrii that modifies those perks. Load it above Vokrii.
  • Some perks or skill trees are still vanilla: You have another mod loaded below Vokrii that modifies those perks or skill trees. Load it above Vokrii.
  • Are critical strikes overpowered: Critical damage in Skyrim does not work the way it does in other games. It is not a multiplier to your total damage, but a value that is roughly equal to half of your weapon's unmodified base damage. For instance, a daedric greatsword deals 12 extra damage on a critical strike regardless of skill, smithing or enchantments. The large critical damage bonuses in Vokrii ensure that critical hits are actually useful.
  • Most of the one-handed/two-handed perks don't do anything: You have another mod that adds a hidden Combat Hit Spell perk with maximum priority, which will override all of Vokrii's Combat Hit Spell perks, disabling them regardless of load order. This is a design flaw on the part of the other mod. This will affect all perk overhauls, not just Vokrii. Unfortunately, this includes the Bloodlust sword from the Dawnfang/Duskfang Creation Club DLC.
  • I'm having huge script lag: This mod is very lightweight and does not cause significant script lag. It features no persistent scripts and very few scripted effects in general. However, certain combat overhauls are inefficently designed and will run a heavy script whenever any actor is struck by anything, including harmless or friendly effects, potentially leading to script overload. This is a design flaw on the part of the combat overhaul and you should replace it. If you can't or don't want to do this, avoid perks that affect other actors, such as Inspire and Elemental Conflux.
  • The perks Ranger, Quick Shot and Block Runner have no effect: These are vanilla Skyrim perks with a peculiar bug where the effect stays after the perk is removed from your character, so taking it again makes no difference. Additionally, Ranger has another bug where it has no effect if you take the perk while sneaking. Note that these are vanilla perks and exhibit the same flaws in the vanilla game. See the UESP page for more information
  • Why are there no perks for non-elemental Destruction spells: Non-elemental spells have nothing in common that I can repurpose. The only perks that can be implemented without changing the spells themselves are general perks like reduced mana cost or increased damage (and changing the spells would require a compatibility patch for every spell pack that adds non-elemental spells). And because non-elemental spells are balanced for the lack of perks improving them in vanilla, and they already benefit from spell damage scaling in Vokrii, they are already much better than in vanilla, so I don't think more perks to make them even more powerful is opportune.
  • Fistfights (brawls) immediately end or turn into a real fight: The "Brawl Bug" is a common issue with many gameplay mods and hard to avoid due to the way Skyrim brawls are implemented. Vokrii comes with a copy of the Modern Brawl Bug Fix included to solve this issue. If it does not, you may have the outdated Brawl Bugs Patch loaded after Vokrii (as a standalone mod or included with another mod such as Enhanced Blood Textures). Remove it or add the Modern Brawl Bug Fix to the end of your load order.
