FEATURES
This mod aims to make Skyrim's otherwise quite bleak enchanting system better by adding additional enchantments. Bind Daedras and ghosts to your armors and clothing, enchant your shields so they burn your enemies upon blocking. Shoot ice bolts with any weapon. All enchantments works on other actors than the player. It also adds these enchantments to the leveled lists so Wrye Bash is recommended to use.


SACRIFICE ENCHANTMENTS:
  • Frost Rune Gains the ability to place Frost Runes on power attacks for 20 seconds. (Location: Bannermist Tower)
  • Fire Rune Gains the ability to place Fire Runes on power attacks for 20 seconds.
  • Daedric Offering Send the target's soul to Oblivion and summons a Flame Atronach for 30 seconds. (Location: Cragwallow Slope)
  • Soul Sacrifice Sacrifices the target's soul to the Ideal Masters and summons a Ghost from the Soul Cairn for 30 seconds. (Location: Morvunskar)
  • Bind Battleaxe Upon slaying transforms into a bound battleaxe.

These enchantments are placed upon weapons and will trigger when you slay an enemy.

CAST ENCHANTMENTS:
  • Ice Spike (Location: Karthspire Camp, carried by a Forsworn)
  • Firebolt (Location: Silent Moons Camp, carried by a Bandit)
  • Lighting Bolt (Location: Halted Stream Camp, carried by a Bandit)

Cast a spell when you attack at the cost of a soul gem fragment. Breaks down lesser and petty soulgems without souls to fragments.

BIND ENCHANTMENTS:
  • Bind Ghost (summons different ghosts everytime. Location: inside Rannveig's Fast)
  • Bind Yngvild Ghost (Location: Yngvild, near bed)
  • Bind Flame Atronach (Location: Karthspire Camp, carried by a Forsworn)
  • Bind Frost Atronach (Location: Silent Moons Camp, carried by a Bandit Paladin)
  • Bind Storm Atronach (Location: Halted Stream Camp, carried by a Bandit)

A creature is bound to the object, it can be summoned permanently at the cost of a filled soulgem. The soulgem is added again to your inventory when you unequip your enchanted item. The soulgem is lost however if the summon dies in any other way; battle or other summon spell. Counts as a ordinary summon, do not equip multiple summoning enchantments as this will probably drain your soulgems away.

  • Ward (Location: Silent Moons Camp, carried by a Bandit Paladin)
  • Greater Ward (Location: Angarvunde)
  • Flames (Location: Silent Moons Camp, carried by a Bandit)
  • Arcane Mirror Reflects spells when blocking (Location: Fort Dunstad)
