Why am i stuck with +3 stat modifiers when leveling?

  1. For some reason I am unable to get more than +3 for Willpower and Intelligence when trying to level. I was already told I need to rest and I decided to gain some more skill in Alteration and Conjuration (both minor skills) to increase this to +5. Unfortunately it stays at +3 even though I leveled each minor skill several times.

    Am I unable to change these stat modifiers when leveling after I've been told to rest?

    Also what happens to these extra times I've increased my minor skills if they don't count to this level up?

  1. I think I found the problem. I had already finished leveling and was told to rest. From here I kept leveling minor skills to increase my stat bonuses (which did not increase regardless of how many minor skills I increased). Essentially you can't increase stat bonuses by leveling minor skills AFTER you've been told to rest.

  1. Are you raising the skills enough to get the +5 bonuses? Could just be that you aren't raising the skills enough. I always raise a skill by 10 points when trying for the +5 stat bonus. Or if there's multiple skills with the same stat, I make sure to raise them by a combined 10 points. If you don't mind mods and want a much easier way, there's a mod that let's you get the +5 bonus much easier. With this mod you only need to raise a skill 1 time to get the +5 bonus for it's associated stat, though you will still need to earn 10 points in major skills to level up. It should take care of any problems you might have with getting the stat bonuses, and make it easier to max out stats. You can find the mod here: www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2691

    If you decide to pass on the mod, you should avoid raising your skills more than you need to. Avoid raising major skills if you've already done enough to level up. It's a waste to raise major skills if you can already level up. You can still raise minor skills even if you can level up, just avoid raising them more than you need to for the stat bonuses. If you raise your minor skills too much early on, you may end up with only your major skills to use to raise your stats. If you don't manage your skills carefully, you could easily end up with a low level character with low stats.
