Wintermyst - Enchantments of Skyrim

Bored with the vanilla pool of just 34 enchantments? Wintermyst adds 124 brand new enchantments to the game, accessible through thousands of new enchanted items that are integrated seamlessly into loot lists and inventories. It also fixes many bugs related to vanilla enchantments.

2017-01-06: Wintermyst is no longer in active development and is superseded by Summermyst - Enchantments of Skyrim available for classic Skyrim and SSE. Wintermyst will remain available for historical purposes.


  • 124 unique new enchantments: 77 armor enchantments and 47 weapon enchantments.
  • Thousands of new enchanted items added to the game's loot lists, NPCs and vendor inventories.
  • All of the new enchantments can be disenchanted.
  • Fair and balanced.
  • Many bugfixes to vanilla enchantments.
  • Configuration options available in the Wintermyst MCM if SkyUI is installed (SkyUI not required to use Wintermyst).

Bugfixes to vanilla enchantments

Wintermyst fixes many bugs with vanilla enchantments. See the Readme for a list of changes.


Known compatibility list

  • ASIS: Compatible. ASIS Increased Spawns will incorrectly affect ally summoning enchantments unless you follow these instructions.
  • Animated Weapon Enchants: Redundant. This feature is already in Wintermyst.
  • Enchanting Awakened: Not compatible. Due to the completely different way enchantments work in Enchanting Awakened, it is not compatible with Wintermyst. Both mods can be active at the same time, but the enchantment limits in Enchanting Awakened do not apply to Wintermyst enchantments.
  • Immersive Armors: Compatible. You do not need a bashed patch because Immersive Armor does not modify levelled lists but adds its items at runtime using a script.
  • Immersive Weapons: Modifies levelled lists; make a bashed patch to merge both mods.
  • Loot and Degradation: Third party compatibility patch available on the Loot and Degradation page (classic).
  • Lootification: Compatible. Run Lootification first to generate item variants with vanilla enchantments, then use the Wintermyst Skyproc Patcher to generate item variants with Wintermyst enchantments. (If you need to make a bashed patch due to other mods that conflict with each other in your load order, do so first of all.)
  • No Enchantment Restrictions: Compatible.
  • Ordinator - Perks of Skyrim: Compatible.
  • Perkus Maximus (PerMa): PerMa includes a modified version of Wintermyst and updates for this version can be found on the PerMa page (classic).
  • Requiem: Third party compatibility patch available here.
  • Skyrim Redone (SkyRe): Compatibility patch available on the downloads page. The patch does not include SkyRe-specific items with Wintermyst enchantments; make a bashed patch to merge their respective loot lists (levelled items), then use the Wintermyst Skyproc Patcher to generate item variants with Wintermyst Enchantments, then run the SkyRe Reproccer on Wintermyst to bring the stats of its added items in line with SkyRe.
  • Summermyst - Enchantments of Skyrim: Incompatible. Both mods modify the same content. Pick one or the other.
  • The Unofficial Skyrim Patch (USKP): Compatible.
  • Worlds Dawn: Compatible. Requires version 1.04 or later of Worlds Dawn.
