Any way to reset perks?

I spent a lot of perk points during the early levels on a lot of stupid stuff, thinking there would be an abundance of perk points anyway. Well, turns out I was wrong, and now I kinda regret my decisions. I'm guessing there isn't a way to reset the perks, but it never hurts to ask.

Like a respec? As far as I know, you can only respec via console on PC. Not on PS3 or 360.

Yeah, having the option to use console would be nice. With the chatpads etc it would add another layer of choice to the game. I mean, it is already in the game for the PC version, why not put it in the console version?

On PC the people expect that there is a console but Xbox or PS it is uncommon.

They just should have a quest for it or a Daedra shrine.

I'm pretty frustrated about this -- it makes me want to start a new character. The reason I'm angry is partially due to the worthlessness of the light armor skill tree. I have 100 smithing. I focused on light armor perks. Upon getting to 100, I unlocked dragon. Dragon does not have any weapons. Glass weapons, the highest I can make, are horrible in comparison to Daedra weapons. I am not able to spend one extra perk point for daedra and instead must go through the heavy armor tree if I desire to get daedra weapons, potentially the best in the game if I use alchemy, smithing, and enchanting potions correctly.

As I got smithing to 100 about a day after the game came out, it was impossible for me to know that going the light armor route was pointless and that dragon had no weapons and also that dragon could craft both light and heavy armor sets. If I want to get close to being able to make the best weapons in the game, I have to sacrifice 4 perks that could be used elsewhere and my entire plan is thrown off. One perk I could have handled. Either dragon needs to be able to make weapons, glass weapon damage should be comparable to daedra weapon damage, or we need to be given one respec for perks. This is absolutely ridiculous.

The only thing keeping me from respeccing now is that I'm level 40, have finished almost all guild related quests, and put in at least 24 hours of play time, if not more, on this character. I just feel like that was all for nothing, as smithing 100 was one of the first things I did once I had the money for it.

Really? I went up the left side as well and was hoping to hit Dragon and then over to Daedra for the weapons, as I had read elsewhere Dragon didn't offer it. That royally sucks though.

Maybe they'll include a respec potion in DLC? It would be a good idea, some people might buy it to get it for a character they've invested a lot of time in but want to tweak.

I went up the Light Armor tree and am quite happy. I am INVINCIBLE! Who needs heavy anyway?

Actually there is a way to reset all your perks, but for a price. You'll have to purchase the Dragonborn downloadable content and then complete the storyline. Then, once you've completed it you'll be rewarded with the choice to reset all your perks, this reward is permanent.
