I just started reading about how there is a "well-rested bonus" for sleeping in your bed. My question is:
1) How long do you have to sleep for to get the full bonus? 2) What exactly does the bonus do? Make skill-ups faster, or are there other benefits? 3) How long does the bonus last for once you wake up from bed? Is it time based, or does it end after you get a certain amount of XP?
This is very similar to the Fallout 3 Well Rested benefit.... sooooo..
1) Not sure, but if it's like FO3, then just 1 hour in bed will give you the well rested benefit. 2) It gives a 10% bonus in earned experience for all skills, so yes, it makes your skills go up faster. 3) the duration is 8 in game hours.
I don't know why I'm not able to get the bonus to activate. I'm sleeping in my own bed in Whiterun, and I've tried doing various lengths of sleep from 1 to 8 to 24, and even 48 hours. For some reason I'm just not seeing any message when I wake up, and I don't see anything under my Magic/Active Effects listings.
Is anybody else having this problem?
(and no I'm not a werewolf, haven't even joined the Companions yet)
