    The images for the perk trees are originally from the Elder Scrolls wikia. I know this because it was me who photoshopped them for the wiki. Could you please reference the wiki as you source?

    sheesh seriously? It’s not like the wiki has a copyright on the picture. Otherwise X-play would have to give you “credit” too since they used them on the review for Dawnguard on the show. lol…………………..
