Why didn't my effective skill level increase after increasing the base?

    INT 10
    Persuasion 75 (109)
    Mercantile 50 (80)

    At the last level up, I already had Mercantile at 45 (80)
    I put 5 points in it and ended at 50 (80)

    Why? It feels disappointing when the effective skill level doesn't move.

    You're level 14, right? Synergy bonuses can't raise a skill over whatever the hard cap for base skills is. You either need to level more to increase the cap or dump a lot of skill points in it so it's breaking 80 without synergy bonuses. Except take the first option, taking advantage of synergy is good.

    Ah, I see, thank you; yes, level 14.
    I played around with the build tool and it showed me what will happen on the next few level ups.
