Skill point resets and research

So I am in the middle of researching a bunch of things.. In particular I am about 15 days from being a 9 trait woodworker. But I also want to take advantage of the skill point reset discount.

If I reset my skill points, do I just lose all but one of my ongoing research?, that is pretty concerning considering it is nirnhoned.

    No, the timer goes back to full time, not reduced but it continues to research. In essence you gain 'free' extra slots.

    I.e. If you are 3/3 research and do a reset and out zero back in you remain 3/1 researching :)

    So obly tune is impacted

    Oh my..

    Research time... 1 day before reset.... 35 days after reset.

    That is really extreme.

    Unlucky! Heard they added a research completed for Writ Vouchers / Crowns. Cud boost it with that if u nd to save another reset.

    Won't affect it if you put the skill pts back in for research. You could also buy the research scrolls from the Crown Store to reduce time by a day....expensive though. I've respec'd many times on my Crafters and never had an issue.

    Unlucky timing indeed!

    You won't lose any progress if you put the research passive back to 3/3.

    Also remember, if you purchased Morrowind, there are added skill points there with the skyshards, public dungeons, main quest, etc.

    Have you seen patch notes that say the discount will expire shortly,after drop? Because usually a skill point recast discount lasts until the next significant patch. Last summer it lasted about two months.
