This alters the artifacts in the game so that you don't stick them in a box somewhere so they can gather dust.

The weapons and armor have had their base values increased slightly higher than Daedric. The enchantments have also been improved (in my opinion, at least).

If you see an item without an enchantment that it has and I don't mention it, that enchantment remains unchanged.


UPDATE 0.4: Added +25% Magic Resistance to the Necromancer's Amulet, made sure it displayed the proper enchantment, and Wuuthrad is now temperable with ebony ingots.


UPDATE 0.3: All the artifacts should now display their new enchantments instead of the old ones. I have also uploaded an alternate version which switches the unhooded Archmage's Robes model with the Master Robes model, for those who don't like the look of the original, though you will have to add them with the console, type player.additem 0007c932 1 to get them.


UPDATE 0.2: I have tentatively updated the Skull of Corruption's enchantment, the Nightingale Blade's enchantment should now be displaying correctly no matter which level version you got, and you should now be able to improve all the artifacts at the grindstone and workbench.
