Adds two new horses to the Dawnguard DLC questline. Horses are enabled after you initially speak with Harkon and have chosen a side (Vampire or Dawnguard).

Shadow - Vampire Questline
'Shadow' is located at the Volkihar castle docks and is set to the players faction. Shadow is fast, agile, and comes with a custom cloak that envelops your enemies in a cloud of bats, draining their life force as the seconds tick away. The cloak is activated when in combat and your enemy is in a close radius to your steed.

Phoenix - Dawnguard Questline
'Phoenix' is located at the Fort Dawnguard camp area and is set to the players faction. Phoenix is fast, agile, and has increased stamina. This horse is equipped with a 'Holy Aura' which surrounds itself in a shroud of fiery light and does sun damage to any enemy that dares to approach. Damage is increased if the target is undead.

* All cloaks are activated in combat and deactivate when not.
* Compatible with Convenient Horses mod.
* You can now turn on/off the combat cloaks by bringing up the console and tying 'set horsecombatcloak to 0'

SEE THE EFFECTS IN ACTION!


SHADOW<------->PHOENIX



CUSTOM SUMMON SPELL



Info:

1. In addition to the horses, two spell books can be found in their general vicinity. These books allow you to summon/un-summon your horse using a custom conjuration spell.

2. Both books will be enabled after you have chosen a side, in case you would prefer to use a different steed. Simply find the book and summon the horse.

Summon Shadow Spell Book - Located at Volkihar docks.
Summon Phoenix Spell Book - Located at Fort Dawnguard camp.


I highly recommend using the ORNANTE SADDLES MOD to improve the look of both horses.
