There are 13 skills in the game, each of which can be raised to a score of 100, for a grand total of 1300 possible skill points in the game. You will get skill points equal to (10 + your Intelligence score) for each level you gain. For this build that’s 19 points at level 2, and 20 points for the rest, since we’ll be making a priority of getting the Intelligence Bobblehead from Rivet City. From leveling alone, we will get a total of 579 skill points. Add that to the base two in each skill for an extra 26 skill points, or 605 total.
In addition are the three Tag! skills (+15 skill points per Tag! skill) for a total of 650. You will also hit a total of 10 in each S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attribute if you select the Almost Perfect perk, adding 20 points to each skill. Luck will add an additional 5 points to all my skills for a total boost from attributes of 25 points per skill (25 x 13 = 325). This all brings the skill point total is at 975 out of the possible 1,300.
Now take into account the skill Bobbleheads, each of which add 10 to their skill. That’s 130 more points, bringing us up to 1,105 points. From books, we need to find only 195 points worth of books. With Comprehension , that’s a measly 98 books out of 323, which is cake. But we’re not done yet. Yew’s Bear Charm gives you 10 points to Speech , and the Cyborg perk (+10 to Energy Weapons ) and the Silent Running perk (+10 to Sneak ) will give us more. Both these perks come highly recommended. So that’s actually only 165 points to go, which requires me to find only 83 books.
