With my first and main charachter I have extremely screwed up his skills.

I need to know if there is a way I can beg steal or cheat to respec his skills.

Because I really don't want to reroll him now.

There is no way to re-spec skills :(

Sorry

Unfortunately, the only way to respec skills is by rerolling.

Depending on level and amount of bound gear, that isn't too hard to do..

You might want to post up how you screwed them up. It's OK. It's newbie Q&A so nobody'll judge you harshly. They might not be as screwed up as you think.

Actually, I don't really see anything wrong with this setup that can't be corrected over a couple of levels.
A couple of tips:
1 - Pick a few skills that you want to improve on and focus on those - this will help you to be better where you want, rather than your current mediocre-in-a-lot-of-areas state.
2 - get items for the skills that you think are more important - most of them don't need to be worn 24/7 (my fighter only wears his balance boots when fighting a lot of giants or other high-trip-ratio mobs

He can't fix all of them in a couple of levels. :(

OP, what skills are you most concerned with? Perform looks OK (only 1 point below max ranks), but I can see where UMD, Concentration, and Balance could be concerns, and the points in Heal are not going to do much for you.

If you just want to fix concentration or UMD you could only put points into Perform and one of those for the next two levels.

Otherwise, you would probably have to reroll (which I don't think I could do with a lvl 12 character).

My founding fighter was a mess at lvl11.. 2-3 skill points in a bunch of areas, specifically, 6 in Diplomacy:eek: and 1.5 in balance:rolleyes:. As a human with an int of 14 (for CE), that was 15 skill points over the next 3 levelups, allowing me to take intimidate from 4 or 5 (iirc) to max ranks, plus put several others into balance (think it's a 5? now).

Look at your characters role out to 20 and don't assume that because he's not at his most efficient now that he'll never get there. 3 levels ago, I was ready to reroll my fighter because of skills (and the mod 3.3 enhancements that cost him 11ac) .. now he's a very successful intimitank that routinely intimidates red named bosses. Rogues and barbarians love grouping with him.
