Swift Learner - yay or nay?

#1Broken AccountPosted 10/27/2010 7:47:18 AM
I'll admit it: I'm terrible at building good characters. Is Swift Learner a good perk?

It seemed good on paper, but after reading this boards it seems some of you aren't too hot on it.

(For the record, I'm level 4 and trying to build on guns, speech, science and lockpick)
'I couldn't care less' is often used with 'not' mistakenly omitted: 'I could care less'. The error destroys the meaning of the sentence and is careless indeed.

no because you will get to level 30 eventually.

You'll reach level 30 either way so it offers no benefit once your character is "built"

I'm a little fuzzy on the details.

No good. A skill like swift learner isn't good cause the max level is 30. If there wasn't a max level then yes it would be good.

Worst perk in the game.

It gives you more XP that's cool but the cap is still the same, so in the end you'll have lost a perk.

*Same goes fore the Here and Now perk.

I got the first level of Swift Learner, but didn't go any further, for the above-mentioned reason. You may hit the level cap too fast, and then the game becomes an order-of-magnitude less fun.

absolutely not. It's probably the single most useless perk in the game. There's no consequences to lowering the difficulty so there's no reason not to level up at your own pace and only lower the difficulty if the game gets too tough for you.

NAY. The whole purpose of leveling up is to get moar perks, so why waste a perk on something that just makes you level up faster?
