Does Morrowind have levels or just level the individual skills?



  • Does Morrowind have levels in the traditional RPG sense?

    Or do you just level each individual skill?



  • In order to gain a level in Morrowind, you must improve your Major and Minor skills by a combined 10 levels. You can gain 1 level in each skill, or 10 levels in one skill, or any combination thereof.

    Afterwards, you need to sleep (not just rest/wait, but sleep, either in a bed or in the wilderness), and you will be able to gain a level.

    When gaining a level, bonuses will appear, up to +5, for your different attributes, depending on the skills you leveled up since your last level. This includes skills that are neither major nor minor skills. Therefore, increasing these other skills can be a good way to ensure you get a +5 in the stats most important to you. The bonus is defined by the attribute associated with the skill, so therefore, Luck will never get a modifier.

    You pick 3 attributes to increase at levelup, so if you have bonuses on 4 or more attributes, extra bonuses will be lost.

    It's also important to note that, if you gain more than 10 major/minor skills before you get a chance to sleep, the extras will carry over towards counting for your next level. You will only gain one level for each time you sleep, so if you've gained 20 or more skills, you'll need to sleep at least twice to gain all your levels.

    Any attribute bonuses you've accrued go away as soon as you've gained a level, so it's generally preferable to level as soon as you get the 10th skill, or else you're liable to waste attribute bonuses you could have used otherwise.
