Cao's Advanced Perk Ranks

This mod adds 77 new ranks to spend perk points on. Now you will definitely need to choose well what type of class you wish to specialize in. I added some very powerful perks, but you will likely only be able to choose a few of the really good ones. Most skill first perks have 7 ranks now instead of 5. What i mainly added here is More Power for those that specialize.

I intend to add alot more perks to have more ranks, but for now this is what i have, i couldn't yet figure out how to modify some perks i wanted to do.

This mod is intended to be used alongside THIS mod -> they are seperate mods, so that you can choose what setting you want for the Extra Pockets Perk, some want cheat mod, some want balanced, so you can decide for yourselves.


use Curse Client


place "cao_PerkRanks.esp" into Skyrim DATA folder

in the launcher tick the checkbox.


If you could donate, it would be great, I spent many hours before the creation kit was released to create this mod, to do so: click the donate button in the upper right, thank you.

Add these lines, or change them if they already exist so they match the below:
