About this mod

Adds more powerful versions of the three novice-level destruction spells - Flames, Frostbite and Sparks.

Permissions and credits
WHAT IS THIS?

This mod adds Apprentice- and Expert-level versions of the three Novice-level destruction concentration spells - Flames, Frostbite and Sparks.

These upgraded spells are visually and mechanically identical to their novice counterparts. The only difference is the magicka costs and damage, which use the stats of the fire-and-forget projectile spells of their level: Firebolt, Ice Spike and Lightning Bolt for Apprentice level (skill 25); Incinerate, Icy Spear and Thunderbolt for Expert level (skill 75). They fill the niche for mid- to late-game close-range "spray and pray" spells.

The tomes for these spells are obtained by converting a tome of their vanilla counterpart at a tanning rack, or by upgrading a lower-level tome with some ingredients.

I think the spells should be relatively balanced compared to their fire-and-forget vanilla counterparts, but please let me know how it plays in practice, particularly the Expert-tier ones.

COMPATIBILITY AND MISC

Definitely compatible:

If you use a spell mod that removes or modifies vanilla destruction spell tomes, you may have trouble obtaining these spells without console commands. But otherwise, this mod should be compatible with almost(?) everything, as these spells are implemented as separate spells, use vanilla magic effects and do not replace any vanilla spells.

For an alternate take on this same concept, see Alex's Destruction Spells by AngryKarakuri.

There is a patch in optional files to change the name of the spell tomes to be in line with the naming convention of Spell Tome Sorting.
