    Does, when being a vampire, the Necromage perk in the Restoration tree has any effects on certain powers gain by reading certain Black Books in Dragonborn, like the power Mora's Boon that restores 1000 points of Magicka, Health and Stamina once per day, making it bigger than 1000?

    Probably. But you're never going to get more than that, so there'd be little need to increase the magnitude.

    Not with Legendary Skills and adding more Health that way.
    One of my characters has 6290 Health (without enchantments) so this is a nice ability after jumping of High Hrothgar instead of Dual Casting Close Wounds like 10 times in a row.

    6290 health without enchants?

    If all of your stat points were put into health then that puts your level at around 619.

    At level 81with every skill at 100, you would need to reset and re-level 147 times just to reach level 252, at which point you could buy literally every single perk point, effectively making the need to legendary again, useless. Unless you wanted the extra challenge. But it wouldn't really be a challenge sitting at 2620 health. It'd actually be horrifyingly boring with no enemies to match your level (even on legendary difficulty). You'd both just be standing there taking piss poor damage from attacks.

    So presuming you powered through the torturous boredom and grind of fighting over and over and over again you are faced with another challenge. Levelling up.

    omg that would be hell. To go from 81 to 252 takes a skill reaching 100 147 times. It is implied that your character is around level 619.
    The algorithm for levveling is:

    XP required to level up your character = (Current level + 3) * 25

    So yours would be (from level 252): (252 +3) * 25
    So the xp needed to go from just 252 to 253 would be 6375xp.

    But going towards your end of the spectrum:
    level 599 moving to level 600
    (599 +3) * 25


    now do that 19 more times adding the extra xp as needed.

    It's late and I'm bored so sorry that this is off topic and a bit dickish but I have to ask

    Pics or didn't happen.

    Naaa, I'm not that cheap. I reached that level by Dual Casting Harmony in area's with a lot of people, than Legendary myself back to level 15 Illusion.
    Aetherial Crown with Lover Stone, being well rested and having the Mage Stone requiped made three to four Harmonies in a row to get my char from 15 to 100. Btw, that character is level 1000, not 1190.

    How about vids or it didn't happen? ;)

    I can not link while being on my mobile but when you search for 'Skyrim at Level 1000' on YouTube or go to my channel Leto85 you will find the video.
    Fighting might be boring at level 1000 (unless you use mods that increase the damage of enemies 100%) but basejumping isn't! :D

    Oh, forgotten to mention: a suite of four pieces with 25% Illusion reduction is indeed practical. :)
