About this mod


This is an expansion of Magicka Sabers by Lord Haun. The meshes, textures, and sounds from his mod are Included (since I had to rename many of the files).

Permissions and credits
I am no longer updating this mod. Check out instead.

I created a 'Lore Friendly' version of this mod that is designed for Mages. 

Aetherium Sabers
This is the former site of my abandoned Plasma Sabers mod.

I'll add new screenshots ASAP.

Magicka Sabers Crystal 5.0

5.5 Added my own saber light effects to the weapons themselves.  You don't need any rings or spells to make it work.  When you draw a saber it will produce light automagically and disappear when you sheathe it.  This effect with show up in your active magic effects only when a saber is drawn.  Note, if you dual wield different colors, only the light listed alphabetically will show.  Also, holding a torch in the off hand will not show the saber light either.  Candlelight and Magelight work fine though.
5.43 Fixed some of the new recipes pointing to the wrong prototype. Increased the magicka cost of the Force healing powers by about a third. Slightly reduced the levels of the Force Ghosts by about 10%. Fixed some spelling mistakes.
5.42 Same as 5_41 but cleaned with TES5Edit, also included the log file for those interested in that sort of thing
5.41 Tweeked some of the leveled lists. Recommend running Wrye Bash.
5.4 Finally completed the new enchantments for all colors. Also Daedric tier recipes now use Black soul gems and Dragon+ use Grand. There are now Dragonbone prototypes! Added optional readme with the new recipes.
5.3b Greatly reduced the spell tomes found on Huantu's corpse.
5.3a Huantu starts dead.
5.3 Corrected the KoToR spells. 300 Magicka spells should no longer be considered novice. Restoration spells will actually show up in your spell list now. Also fixed some weapon and NPC level lists that had a bad reference. Thanks to those that pointed this out to me. Moved the dead Jedi from Bleakfall Barrow to the exit at Helgen (so he was killed by an immortal dragon instead of some nameless drauger). This was done for those people that don't like to start (or even do) the main quest. This corpse is for those that want to play a Jedi/Sith from the start. If you feel that this loot is OP, don't loot it. I did remove some of the spell tomes he was carrying and changed his robes to novice.
5.2 Fixed the .ESM Master load order. Also in the middle of adding new prototypes. Only Amethyst is done for now. I hope to work on this over the holiday on Monday. Check tiers Dwemer, Ebony, and Dragonbone (yes an actual 100+ recipe!)
5.1 Same as 5.0 except this file actually works.
5.0 Added dozens of new spells to both vendors. See towards the bottom of the page for the full list, also available as a file for download. Spells Adept and up will require proper skill to have available. Changed the name of the Vendor in Whiterun. Added more to inventories of both vendors. The available septums each vendor has is now level dependent. Removed all spells from the forge, they are now solely on both venders. Added Jedi / Sith codes to each book.
4.06 Reduced Force Ghosts effectiveness slightly, particularly at low levels. Added ingredients to both Revans. Also increased the xp use of all Force Lightnings while slightly increasing their magicka costs.
4.05 Fixed Force Ghosts not looking like Ghosts. Added Screenshots.
4.04 Added summon Force Ghost spells to both Revans, also finally changed the NPC weapons to use the new enchantments.
4.03 Minor update. Added 5 tiers of Force Lightning spell tomes to the forge and both Revans. They are basically like a more damaging Sparks spell except I also added the Slow effect (Since you can't add stagger to concentration spells).
4.02 Fixed all recipes, including Ebony that I forgot to upgrade. Added Destruction to all Tempering recipes.
4.01 Finished adding one handed, two handed, and destruction to all the recipes
4.0 Latest release

This is the latest, and hopefully final version of this mod. I was playing one of my toons the other day and was disappointed that I couldn’t use a flame enchantment for my sith that uses only ruby crystals. After cursing the day this nefarious mod designer was born, how dare he choose orange for a flame enchantment (it made perfect sense at the time), I realized that the nerfherder in question was in fact, myself. So I set out to correct this huge oversight. I didn’t realize how large a project this would become. Once I realized I would be duplicating every enchantment for every color anyway, this gave me the chance to revisit and redesign the enchantments themselves. The mod was missing key effects like Banish, Fear, and Paralysis. Also many on the forums were calling for stuff like Fiery Soul. Well I DO listen to the call of the people (ok, not really but I want them in game too). I also invented a handful of new unique enchantments. One downside to the new system is that now this mod requires Dawnguard and Dragonborn. Let me repeat that:


I’m sorry for those that don’t have one or both of these expansions, but several of the new enchantments require scripts and keywords from both .esm masters. This also allowed me to ‘fix’ the keywords for Dragonscale and Dragonbone weapons. The legendary edition has been out long enough now that I think most folks that still play Skyrim have these by now. I will, as always, keep the older versions of this mod available for those that can’t use the new one, but from this moment on I will only support version 4.0 and up.
Ok, with all that out of the way, since I was recreating the enchantments all over again anyway, I decided to change the way they are obtained. They still can be crafted at the forge. But they will now come in tiers, just like the weapon upgrades themselves. So, at a novice skill level of under 20 (Iron) you will have access to Fear (which includes Turn Undead since they are basically the same effect anyway) and Soul Trap only. At skill level 20 (Steel) Fire, Frost, and Shock become available. At skill level 30 (Orc) you get Absorb Health, Magicka, and Stamina. And so on … The only exceptions are the unique Daedric weapons you can craft that require them to be in your inventory (Dawnbreader, Dragonbane, Ghostblade, and Mehurnes Razor) are found under Daedric but these Prototypes have no skill requirement. I did this because you can obtain these weapons at almost any level. Also I added soul trap to Ghostblade and Mehurnes Razor, these weapons just seem to fit with trapping souls. As of now there are new enchantments up to skill level 90.
I don’t know if I have mentioned this before, but my enchantments on average cost only about 10% of what the vanilla Skyrim ones do. I did this because in the movies you never see any Jedi/Sith ‘recharging’ weapons plus you will have to redo the enchantment after each tier upgrade anyway. At last count there are now 30 enchantments!
The way I tend to play is I craft the same hilt in one and two handed versions and put the same enchantment on them and just ‘pretend’ that they are the same weapon. (I originally did the same thing with some katana/nodachi mods in Morrowind and Oblivion so I’ve had this idea for a while). Therefore, I also redid the recipe conditions so that it uses the higher of your one OR two handed OR Destruction skill. I added destruction so that those playing pure mages can still wield cool weapons. I will change the existing weapon recipes to this as well, but for now only the prototype recipes are finished.
I have revisited some old options and have included filled soul gem upgrading and also included a way to create empty soul gems. This is also tiered, so check the forge every time your skill reaches a new tier (30,40,50 …). All non - weapons will be under the misc category.
In order to fully use this mod you first need to forge a ‘Prototype’ weapon. All weapons named Prototype … are meant to be disenchanted at an alter. Now that the enchantments are tiered you may get more mileage out of using them first then disenchanting it when you reach the next tier, but that is up to each player. All Prototype weapons have the same stats as the tier they are crafted under, however they CANNOT be tempered. Remember also that one and two handed weapons use different enchantments. Two handed Prototypes will have the keywords ‘Flawless’ and ‘Greatsaber’. One handed weapons are just ‘Saber’. Once you have a Prototype created you can then forge a ‘Training’ weapon. Training weapons are the ones you enchant at the alter. Also, if your skill is 20+ you can upgrade under steel immediately before enchanting. Repeat this if your skill is 30+ and on… You can either temper before or after enchanting. None of the tempering recipes require Arcane Smithing.

Note - you can actually use any crafted hilt without enchanting it but the blade will be invisible and it will not have any enchantment on it.

Prototype Recipes – Leveled ingot, firewood, leather strip, (flawless) Gemstone, and one or more ‘extra’ ingredients depending on the enchantment.

For instance Fear requires bone meal. Those with more than one effect require an ingredient per effect, so Fiery Soul requires a fire salt and an empty soul gem.

Note – the Prototype recipes have as a condition the gemstone needed in addition to a skill requirement. Therefore, you will not see any Prototype recipes if you don’t have any gemstones in your inventory. If you want the listings to be more manageable remove all the gemstones from your inventory that you don’t plan on crafting with. Remember that Amethysts will also show Citrine and Rubies will also show Padparadscha.

All recipes created at the forge that contain Soul Trap require ‘empty’ Soul Gems. All enchanting at the Arcane Alter use ‘filled’ Soul Gems. Both Revans sell a limited supply of both.
Recipes involving Soul Trap require a leveled empty soul gem. The tiers are Iron & Steel (Petty), Orc & Dwemer (lesser), Elven & Glass (common), Ebony (greater), Daedric(grand), and Dragon (black).
Note – regarding enchantments with Soul Trap. If the enchantment has more than one other effect, the result is a Chaotic Soul Trap which only triggers 50% of the time like Chaos weapons. So while the basic Soul Trap (under Iron) and even the Fiery, Frosty, Shocking Soul (under Elven) work 100% of the time, multiple effect ones like Chaos Soul and Lifetap which contain 4 effects will only trigger 50% of the time. All the new custom enchantments under Dwemer and the Daedric weapons are the normal 100% soul trap.
‘Training’ Recipe - Iron ingot, firewood (or Gold and Silver ingots), leather strip, Centurion Dynamo Core, Dwemer Oil, (flawless)Gemstone, and Quicksilver.
The only difference now between the ‘default’ hilts and the movie ones is that the default use firewood and the movie hilts use gold/silver ingots.
Recipe Padparadscha (Pink) - (Flawless) Ruby, Corundum ingot
Recipe Citrine (Yellow) - (Flawless) Amethyst, Iron ingot
Tempering - Leveled Ingot (no more soul gems here, they are now the same as other weapons)
All weapons now follow a Jedi or Sith naming pattern. Remember you can rename all weapons at the enchanting alter to whatever you want. A lot of players forget this (including myself).

Most spells and spell names are taken from KOTOR1. I kept the vanilla spell schools on effects. This is why spells like Force Whirlwind are in Alteration (Paralysis costs more than Unrelenting Force damage). Almost all use vanilla spell costs (Lower level Detect Life and Telekinesis spells being the only expections). I decided to keep all five ranks of Force Lightning since it is such an iconic part of SW lore (and fun for all ages).

Exclusions from KOTOR1
All Droid spells - Paralysis doesn't work on Dwemer machines. Many Dwemer ruins are heavily scripted so I didn't want to break quests.
Force Resistance / Force Immunity - Same as Ward spells
Force Suppression / Force Breach - Can't cancel buffs on NPC's
Throw Lightsaber - Not really needed in Skyrim (I am trying to get at least the plasma part of the blade as a projectile, working on it)
Fear / Horror / Insanity - Illusion already has plenty of fear / frenzy spells
