About this mod

A necromancer's scythe made from human skeleton parts. - Redone! Now with different colors!

Permissions and credits
I've added a FOMOD installer to change the colors of the gems on the scythe! Check out the optional downloads!

This is a remake of my first upload from October 2017 (Oldrim). Now it's time for another rework, but this time the scythe model is in its final form :)

A necromancer's scythe made from human skeleton parts.

The scythe is forged as usual using the following components:

  • 1x Deadra Heart
  • 5x Steel Ingot
  • 1x Human Skull
  • 1x Human Spine
  • 4x Grand Soul Gem (empti)

In order to craft the “Necromancer Scythe”, you must have the perk "Daedric Smithing".
The stats are exactly the same as the Daedric Battle Axe - also, the scythe uses the animations of battle axes.

The weapon can also be enchanted and you need 2x Steel Ingots and 1 Grand Soul Gem (empti) to temper it.

Now what the heck is a “Human Spine”? Simply explained, you can now find this new crafting item in random skeletons.

Use Vortex or MO2 as usual or extract the folders "meshes", "textures" and the "NecroScytheRedone.esp" in your "Data" folder.
X:\SteamGames\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\Data

By adding stuff to the skeleton loottable, the loading order should be as high as possible.

Override any files and be happy. It is save to update midgame.

There are 3 versions of this mod: 1k, 2k, and 4k. This means the texture size. Choose one of the three that fits your PC specs.

I play with a 3080 10GB and the 4k textures without any problems. (DLAA + ENB @ 2.560 x 1.440 or WQHD) The frames are limited to 61 by ENB.
Graphics cards with less VRAM could be problematic with the 4k textures, but try it yourself :D
