About this Mod

This mod offers a lore friendly quality texture makeover for mage related vanilla gear which includes staves, Daedric artifacts like Spellbreaker or Azura's Star. Future updates will include other things like Dragon Priest masks, mage robes etc. so I do highly recommend to track this mod for updates if you like my work.

This mod is highly modular, as you can either choose the full pack which will be updated with every new addition or - if you only want to use parts of this mod - the single items like "Spellbreaker" or themed packs like "staves".

Many of the items have hardly been covered by mods so far or there are too little options to choose from, so I decided to do this myself since many of these things are really cool to use and therefore shall not be neglected anymore.

The textures of the main version are quite big, but can be used without problems as all of my various testers have reported. I chose to keep them uncompressed for the best possible texture quality and look. A performance version will be added soon if required, but I really recommend to use the main uncompressed version.

About the looks of it images can say more than thousand words of mine - especially since I had the honour to be able to get some of the greatest screenarchers on the Nexus as beta testers for my work. Be sure to check out their remarkable work in the gallery on this front page and in the image section of this mod. I can also recommend to watch the fantastic review videos which show my stuff how it actuelly looks and works ingame.

Skyrim 1.8+ is required for this mod to work. Future updates may include items from the DLC's but if that is the case these files will be marked and described as such.


Download the mod file and extract the file into your skyrim directory, e.g. C:Program Files (x86)SteamSteamAppscommonskyrimData and say "yes" when being asked to integrate and override.


Delete the file via NMM or manually by deleting the files contained in the mod folder within your Skyrim "Textures" folder.


This mod is compatible with everything except mods that alter the same TEXTURES. Scripts or ESP-files are not included so there should be absolutely zero bugs or game relevant compatibility issues.
