About this mod

This mod makes changes to Serana's combat abilities in an effort to make her more effective in battle & make her more worthy of the title "Daughter of Coldharbour" No more weak Ice Spike or useless Necromancy spells that are useless against higher level opponents.

    --Short Overview--
Thank you for viewing my mod! Queen of the Damned - Deadlier Serana was originally developed by Xunderxdosedx, so please, be sure
to check out her other cool mods here on the nexus. This (much needed) amazing Serana enhancement mod would not exist without her.
I've since taken what Xunderxdosedx developed and advanced it even more by making Serana a one woman vampire army... you'll be
VERY glad she's on your side! This version is for Skyrim Special Edition only, and it contains everything the classic Skyrim version had;
with an additional tweak to Serana to make her use her sword and engage in melee combat more often.
NEW IN VERSION 2.0: Valerica has now been given the Queen of the Damned tweaks, abilities and melee weapon to fight just like Serana.

--The Specifics--
- Vampire Lord style missile spell which does 150 points of damage. Unlike the VL version it doesn't have any Absorb properties, it's simply a more powerful alternative to Serana's favored Ice Spike spell. It does non-elemental damage so as to ignore resistances as much as possible. She also now has the necessary perks to dual-cast this spell.
- Vampire Lord style Paralyze spell, which paralyzes targets for 7 seconds. Serana needed some sort of crowd control type of move, and for lack of a better idea I decided to give her her own version of Corpse Curse so she could selectively immobilize enemies.
- Castable Bat Cloak spell, absorbs 10 points of health per second from enemies within range. Should work against anything but Centurions. Serana needed a little bonus to melee defense and a balanced way to heal herself in combat, this should provide both.
- Conjure Gargoyle for 60 seconds. Unlike the regular Gargoyle summoned by Vampire Lords, this Gargoyle is based on the Gargoyle Sentinel, has a unique skin which was in the CK but wasn't used for anything, has a slightly improved AI, and levels up with the player from 10 to 50. This spell replaces Serana's default Raise Zombie-type spells so she's not leaving ash piles everywhere, and because the Gargoyle is more useful than most of the corpses she resurrects anyway.
- Her weapon strikes now deal 25 points of poison damage, and her power attacks with a weapon can knock enemies away, much like the knockback effect Werewolves and Werebears have. I wanted to emulate the Vampire Lord's Poison Talons perk, and to illustrate the physical strength a 4,000 year old vampire would possess. It's also worth noting that she only uses her weapon very rarely, so I thought I should make it count more.
- Small resistance to magic and physical damage [10%], and a near-total elimination of fall damage [90%].
- New sword replacing her default Elven Dagger. The sword is named Coldharbour's Daughter. It does equivalent damage to that of a Dragonbone Sword, can be enchanted with whatever you think is appropriate, and can be tempered at a grindstone with a Steel Ingot. It's nothing fancy, I just re-used the model from Harkon's Sword.
- Her default Drain Health spell has been slightly buffed, and the magical effects behind it have been altered to work on anything but Centurions. This spell is pretty much Serana's main weapon and defensive option, so I thought I should tweak it a little.
- Become Bats Swarm. This spell will allow Serana to evade her opponents, if she feels threatened, for a few seconds by turning into a swarm of bats and getting a temporary increase in her movement speed. This is basically the "become ethereal" shout but in spell form and a different look.
- When her health is low, there is a high chance to trigger an effect which will heal Serana for 100 points. It will also shroud her in mist which renders her temporarily ethereal and invisible until she attacks, as well as allowing her to telekinetically repel nearby attackers. This is supposed to be like a combination of Mist Form and some kind of telekinesis, and it lasts ten seconds. Additionally there is a very high chance for her to auto-cast Mass Paralysis when her health is sufficiently low. With this ability, she should now be able to hang in high-level fights a little bit better.

    --Load Order--
(listed from top to bottom)
0. Serana Dialog Addon (in fact SDA is compatible as it doesn't change Serana NPC record directly, so it's position shouldn't matter in QofD context)
1. Any appearance changer mod (See mod description for supported appearance changer mods)
2. Serana Dialogue Edit (if using it)
3. This mod: UD_Serana.esp
4. Relationship Dialogue Overhaul (if using it)

Except for Serana appearance changer mods, this shouldn't have any conflicts with any other mod since only Vanilla assets were used.
I kept this mod as light-weight as possible, just like how Xunderxdosedx originally intended it to be. There are no changes
to Serana's voice, sounds, appearance, quests, relationship with the player, aggression, or confidence. All that was done
to Serana was that she got a new sword, some new perks, and a handful of new spells.

    --Enjoy the mod!--
If you have any questions or if you'd like to just stop by and say thanks, please feel free to post them in the mod's
comment section. I'll be happy to read them!
