Why do we Need Teachers

In addition to the usual leveling when applying skills in Skyrim, you can also level them with mentors, paying a certain amount of gold for this. Each teacher is assigned a specific rank:

  • Adept - raises the skill level to 50;
  • Expert - teaches up to level 75 inclusive;
  • Master - with it, you can pump skill to 90.

Further, unfortunately, you have to swing yourself, books will not help either. The process is complicated by the fact that from 90 to 100 the skill grows extremely slowly. This is more than compensated: the most "delicious" perks of any skill are located just on top.

The game has a limitation: for each character level, you can take no more than five lessons of all skills in total. There are also a couple of ways to cheat to make it easier for you to level up.

The first way is to take two lessons, then steal money from the mentor from the inventory. In this way, you can save a decent amount, which is better spent on equipment. It’s very difficult to steal some teachers, so it’s easier to throw a Paralysis potion in your pocket and get the money, while the NPC is limited in its capabilities.

The second way is to go through all the Companions' quests and become the most important among them. After that, any of the associates can take partners. NPC gives the money that your character pays for the lesson voluntarily from the inventory.

It should be borne in mind that the leveling of the character is due to the leveling of skills. And if level 100 can still be pumped, then it starts very difficult: if you want to pump a character, you have to re-profile completely, using skills, equipment and learning professions that you don't like at all.

As for the teachers, it should also be noted that access to some of them can be obtained only after passing the appropriate quests and opening locations. There are several teachers who do not sit still, but constantly move within the city limits, so it can be difficult to find them - unless by chance.
