Excess Skill Points

Just like it says. I have level 50 characters with excess points. What I'd like to see, since we pay to play this game, is the ability to "share" those extra points with our other characters on the same account/server. Only stipulation being that the character we share with also has to be level 50. I mean if they're as good as they claim to be, this shouldn't be too hard of a coding change. I only use the points to level what I deem necessary on each character. I have one character who has the necessary skills to survive, plus be a full fledged craftsman. Just a thought. Again I know there will always be excess, but it would be good to be able to use what WE pay for.

    Antiquities skill line should eat up quite a few. But it’s also nice to have all the skill lines and al the passives unlocked plus relevant skills depending if you are stamina or magicka so you can reskill on the fly if you choose. It’s just a shame that 60% of the skills in this game probably get no use what so ever.

    True. I don't even use all the skills in the skill sets I do access. No 2h, don't use staves, only use one type of armor, don't really use soul magic since I can buy filled soul gems cheap (I save my gold. Have over 1.2 mil). Only use 1 or 2 things from Mage, fighters guilds. So alot is redundant.

    Now that you can pay to win skill points in the cash shop, this will never happen. Would have been nice, though.

    Has 3 characters who has enough skillpoints for being full crafters and also work in both pvp and pve. One is also an healer.
    Main who has done all the quests and all the dungeons has over 50 free the other don't have much free.
    Main will get the Antiquities, not sure if i bother grind it for others, depend on how it works out.

    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    How can you have excess skill points? Nothing in crafting? Nothing in psijic? Only one or two weapon lines? I need 300 or so to do pvp, pve and crafting. I guess if they are all grand warlords and all did Caldwell's gold and silver that might be a different story. I have a character with 375 skill points and I don't have enough.

    Level crafting on all your characters. The problem will go away for quite a long time!

    Sorry, but your wrong. First off if you get all the skyshards, that is 127 skill points. Plus skill points for completing main quest in each area. And various quests other than main gives a skill point once in a while. So you'll have more skill points left over even if you max everything out.

    maxed out crafting (all of them). Only have the essentials i need for fighters, mages, thieves, dark brotherhood and psijic. You don't need every button for every skill. If you do that you're just wasting them. I only PVE, so I will always have extra.

    I have like 300 skill points on my main and still need more. If you have excess, it's because you're not putting everything you can into optimization.

    Only if you just have a single character.

    I have about 22 now and I have plenty more SkyShards to earn to get crafting up on all of them.

    Only my single "main" has more SkyShards than needed.

    I am not wrong IF you are doing more than the minimum.

    Though I suppose I have only been playing about a year and a half (IIRC), so maybe time playing minimizes that.

    Want to gift me a bunch of SkyShard store items then? (I don't think you can, but I am getting somewhat tired of the SkyShard grind myself and I have a ways to go, even with level 50 characters.

    You say there are no excess skill points. My point is I only level what I need on each character. I don't make every character a crafter. This means I'm going to have extra SKILL points. What I'm saying is we should be able to gift skill points to our other characters once they reach level 50. my point is you're wrong about no extras. As far as skyshards I just find all of them when I get to a new area. And you get 1 skill point not for the whole main quests, but the sub-sections of each main quest. I've earned 4 just for the first 4 parts of the thieves guild main quests, and only half way through that. So excess. I mean we pay to play. If we want nice things we pay for the store. They screw up and lose connection (everytime they update) for 24 hours or more and never reimburse. So to be fair let us move excess skill points around. Not like I'm asking for free mounts or anything. We pay to play our characters we should have some right in dictating how they're run.
