EcthelionOtW Dawnguard Weapons - Auta i lome




About this Mod



Auta i lome - the night vanishes! These words in Elven tongue I had in mind when I decided to create a texture overhaul for the Dawnguard weapons and shields, since this marks the essence of the Dawnguard how I see it. As a result of that idea I created these re-textures with the sun as the ultimate nemesis of all undead creatures as a central symbol and silverized metal as the thing they fear most.

Sadly enough these fine pieces of weapons and armory have hardly been seen on screenshots or used ingame by most people, which may be caused by the distinct lack of charm and character of the vanilla textures for these items. Therefore I've created this mod - to enhance their vanilla look, while staying true to the lore with highly detailed new and/or modified textures, to make them both believable and pleasant to look at.

These items can be obtained from members of the Dawnguard faction, either via trade or - if you side with the Vampires - through looting. Some items can be found in Fort Dawnguard to be picked up freely.

Completion Status :

- Steel Crossbow, Bolt and Quiver - complete
- DG Warhammer - complete
- DG Waraxe - complete
- DG Shield - complete
- DG Rune Shield - complete
- DG Rune Warhammer - complete
- DG Rune Waraxe - WIP

About the looks of it images can say more than thousand words of mine - especially since I have the honour to have some of the greatest screenarchers on the Nexus as regular 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 also recommend to watch the beautiful review videos below to see how these items look ingame.

The powerful Dawnguard Rune Shield, which is a unique item has been decorated with the faded golden symbol of the ancient Dawnguard, which gives this old heirloom a believable and adorable look, which matches its inherited power.
