I am starting this thread for discussion about Skyrim Patch 1.9. I've read a few things about it over at Beth's forums, about Legendary perks, mostly, and rumors that these new perks are going to apply to future DLC that's possibly gonna be released soon.

From what I can discern, this means new perks are being added, and I am guessing they'll continue expanding the perk tree beyond the current top level? I am actually asking this of you all here in the forums, because I've read dozens of different opinions over 'there', no doubt some of them are false.

My understanding is that 1.9 does not add any new perks. The whole Legendary Perk thing just appears to be a mechanic where you can reduce a skill to 15, and reclaim all of the perk points you spent upon it. Then you can respend those perks elsewhere. I think the idea is to remove the way the game eventually caps your advancement, because once you hit 100 in every skill there is nowhere else to go, and it is impossible to take every perk in the game. So by letting you knock a skill down, but keep the perk points, you can eventually get 100 in everything, and every single perk in the game.

The only other new thing is a higher difficulty level.

Other than that, the patch is bug fixes. I noticed that some of the often clamored for ones are finally in there. Like the Ebony Blade finally uses your Two Handed skill, the Nord Hero Bow can finally be improved, etc...

I have not tried it yet myself. That would mean needing a new version of SKSE, and maybe SkyUI, and I am not going to play this game without either.

SKSE gets updated almost as soon as (if not at the same time) the new patch comes out. I don't think SkyUI will have any issues. I don't do the beta patches just because I don't want something to happen and have to restart Aravi's game again.

I do not think there is a difference between beta patches and regular patches on PC. I think they just call all the PC patches betas because they are out at least a week before the console patches. The PC versions do not have to go through any certifications after all. I think that once the console version of the patch is out, they just stop calling the PC one a beta.

Basically I think they wait for a while and see if it breaks everyone's game. laugh.gif If not, then they roll it out for everyone.

Ha ha yup! Hence the word "beta" being used.

Well, this person appears to have found an interesting 'feature' in 1.9.

Sounds like a good feature and patch. I'll be waiting patiently for it to be released on 360.

I have seen some people say this patch stops wolves from howling.

I thought it was Dawnguard that stopped the wolves from howling. They still howl in my PS3 games (no Dawnguard), so I'll have to listen for wolves the next time I play on the Xbox (Dawnguard installed).

I'm hoping this is how it's going to work...J'zirlo's Smithing was the first thing to hit 100 and it's (at least I think it is) the only one where I have/he has all the perks for it...

So the idea of resetting to 15 while keeping all the Ebony/Deadric/Glass etc, and then starting all over again is massively appealing...

The bit about followers being killed by poison made me laugh...I've lost count of the times I've needed to reload because of a fight/poison dart trap J'zargo death... biggrin.gif ...

Can't remember whether the wolves still howl on mine...I've not noticed it lately, I have to admit...But I've not got Dawnguard so...Gawd knows, I'm just not noticing stuff anymore I guess... laugh.gif ...

I don't know about PC, but deleting Dawnguard makes wolves howl again on my Xbox, I don't know about other people's systems. I have deleted and re-installed DG several times now, wolves do not howl once DG is active, but if it's deleted for some reason they do howl.

It must be an console thing, because I have had Dawnguard installed for months and active all that time, and my wolves have always howled.

OK, New Jensa (Xbox with Dawnguard) viewed several wolves silently howling. So they still howl, but the vampires gave them laryngitis.

At least on the Xbox.

Ultrasonic? Dogs' (and presumably wolves') hearing goes up further.
