Tinker is a Smithing and Firemaking perk. It acts differently for each. It can be created in tool gizmos.
While firemaking, it has a 5% chance per rank per action to increase the experience gained from that action by 25%. It does not work with Superheat Form. This extra XP is given as base XP, giving a corresponding increase in item XP and allowing it to be doubled with bonus XP.
While smithing, it has a 2% chance per rank to grant double progress for that swing, increasing the overall experience per hour.
When the perk triggers, it prompts the message: Your tinker perk allows you to carry out higher quality work, awarding extra XP/progress.
