Animated Enchantments Overhaul

I got permission from the original mod author, to release this mod version.

Original mod here Animated Enchantment Effects

Remade from scratch, removing unnecessary quests, content, sounds and adding new enchants, you can disenchant all the weapons and use the new effects.

  • Works on vanilla and custom weapons.
  • Sword Enchants; Fire, Frost, Shock, Absorb Health (Blood), Absorb Magicka (Magic), Soul Trap
  • Two-Hand Sword Enchants; Fire, Frost, Shock, Absorb Health (Blood), Absorb Magicka (Magic), Soul Trap
  • BattleAxes enchants; Fire, Frost, Absorb Health (Blood), Absorb Magicka (Magic) Soul Trap
  • Daggers; Fire, Frost, Absorb Health (Blood), Absorb Magicka (Magic), Soul Trap
  • Enchant Shadow of Death left untouched for battleaxes
  • Fully working 2 enchants on single weapon, the strongest enchant will display the effect, more info below
  • All enchantments are silent upon sheath/unsheath and silent in 3rd/1st person changes.
  • Enchants are using vanilla Skyrim formulas for damage/cost/charges, nothing overpowered.
  • Proper schools of magic applied to enchantments for more compatibility with other mods, they should work like their vanilla equivalents.
  • Burn effect and duration are same as vanilla

Where and how to get them?

Whiterun, Dragon's Reach, Farengar Secret-Fire, chest near office entrance.

Enchanting - Extra Effect Perk

The strongest enchant will determine which effect will display

Fire 30 + Frost 20 = Flame Sword display
Absorb Health 30 + Paralyze 2 seconds = Blood Sword display

You can mix the new effects or with vanilla enchants


  • I get a sword mesh on top of my 2-handed axe
  • I get a sword mesh on top of my dagger

  • You need to use the matched enchantment for your weapon type, the default names are for swords, the rest are named accordingly.

Mod is cleaned with TES5Edit

For now the effects are limited to 4 types of weapons, i lack the knowledge in meshes editing to expand the selection.

Yes i know some enchants do not fit some weapons properly and i doubt i could change it, users will have to try them out if the meshes fit.
