*Note: Dawnguard DLC required.
**Version 2.0 Released 10/15/13
Have you ever wanted to play a Restoration mage, but found it to be impossible? Have you had to resort to using Conjuration, Illusion, or even Destruction Magic in order to survive? Well this mod hopes to remedy that problem.
Dawnguard was a great addition to the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but one aspect of the DLC felt lacking and tacked on: the inclusion of offensive Restoration spells for the Dawnguard. By the time you are able to recruit Florentius into the Dawnguard, you would be around level 15 or so. By that time, any of the two restoration tomes he can sell you are essentially obsolete at that point. Sun Fire is fairly weak, Stendarr's Aura makes it so you HAVE to be close to enemies to make it useful (mages should never HAVE to be at the front lines) and Vampire's Bane just isn't powerful enough. Not only that, why use these at all when most Fire spells do the job more efficiently?
That's the purpose of this mod: to make Restoration Mages viable without making them overpowered. You won't be able to tank anything using Restoration spells alone; you'll still need to use Alteration spells or armor if you want to survive.
All new spells will become available in all major Holds as your level progresses; spell books are now part of a leveled list and are added to a merchant's inventory one at a time. Books are either sold by the court wizard, or by the local general merchandise provider. List of sellers will be added later, so for now go explore!
