Features
High-Level Loot Rarified is a minimalistic mod inspired by the item distribution of Morrowloot. The purpose of this mod is to achieve something similar to Morrowloot but with as few edits as possible to the core game to make it as compatible as possible. Morrowloot completely removes all random loot with glass+ quality and hand places it on NPC's and in the game world. High-Level Loot Rarified doesn't touch NPC's or the game world, instead it makes all glass+ loot spawn randomly but rarely.

  • The vanilla mechanic to lower the chance to get daedric items didn't cover all daedric items in the leveled lists. This has been altered, all daedric items are now covered.
  • The chance to find ebony/stalhrim items are 10 times lower than without this mod.
  • The chance to find glass is 5 times lower than without this mod.
  • Dragonscale and dragonbone weapons and armors are completely removed from the leveled lists
  • The mod covers armors, weapons, arrows and ingots. The leveled lists of Arrows and ingots has been more mildly altered.
  • The Thalmor has a higher chance of carrying glass, they use vanilla values.
  • The Draugr Deathlords are left untouched. The have vanilla chance of carrying ebony. They begin to spawn at level 30.

Compatibility
This mod is compatible with everything that doesn't alter the leveled lists for weapons and armors. Mods that adds weapons and armors to the game world is made compatible by using a bashed patch. Mods that adds glass, stalhrim, ebony or daedric weapons or armors needs a patch (or addon) to keep the rebalance from this mod.
Addons and compatibility patches are available for Animated Armoury, Ars Metallica, Dawnguard Arsenal, Heavy Armory and OBIS.

Addons

Animated Armoury

This addon rarifies the weapons added by Animated Armoury. It makes a lot of changes to the leveled lists edited by Animated Armoury to make the edits more in line with the changes made by Heavy Armory. This makes sure that the weapons added by both mods are integrated into the game in a similar way. Make sure to use the leveled list version of Animated Armoury.

Heavy Armory
The addon for Heavy Armory rarifies the high level weapons added by Heavy Armory. It makes some edits to the leveled lists of Heavy Armory to add loot where Animated Armoury adds loot but Heavy Armory didn't. This makes sure that Heavy Armory and Animated Armoury are integrated into the game in a similar way.

OBIS
This addon rarifies the high level loot added by OBIS.

Tweaks

A consistency tweak for Animated Armoury and Heavy Armory is provided. It is created by using a script by Wherediditrun.

With this tweak, you'll notice the following differences to the game:
  • Rebalaning of Animated Armoury and Heavy Armoury against both each other as well as against vanilla Skyrim.
  • The Halbards from Heavy Armory, which are shorter than Halbards from Animated Armory, will be renamed to Pole Axes (which is a real thing).
  • The new animations from Animated Armoury will be applied to the new weapons from Heavy Armory

Patches

Animated Armoury - Heavy Armory patch
This is a simple leveled list patch to make sure that everything added by High-Level Loot Rarified and its addons are compatible with each other without using a bashed patch. If other mods edits the same leveled lists as this mod or its addons does, manual conflict resolution or a bashed patch is still needed.

Dawnguard Arsenal

This is a simple leveled list patch to make sure that everything added by this mod and its addons are compatible with Dawnguard Arsenal without using a bashed patch. If other mods edits the same leveled lists as this mod or its addons does, manual conflict resolution or a bashed patch is still needed.

Ars Metallica

The Ars Metallica patches makes sure that all leveled list conflicts with Ars Metallica are resolved. It also adds breakdown recipes for Animated Armoury and Heavy Armoury. Dawnguard Arsenal users should also use the Ars Metallica patch from Dawnguard Arsenal's nexus page.
