  • Elemental Staffs is a texture change mod designed to change almost every staff in the game.
  • Destruction Staffs have undergone the greatest changes, going from the single vanilla staff to nine separate versions in this mod, three tiers across the three element types plus some additional special staves.
  • There are two Alteration staff texture sets, three Conjuration staff sets, three Illusion staff sets and two Restoration staff sets.
  • Assorted special instance staffs like Halldir's staff and Tandil's Staff, which have been given appropriate texture changes.
  • The four Falmer Destruction and Summoning staves have been given glow maps and appropriate colour changes to eyes and mandibles.
  • The Forsworn Destruction staff has had its 'bone crystal structure' changed to a glowing fire-like crystal.
  • The two "Dragon Priest" staffs have been altered in name and appearance to match Hevnoraak's Staff, I intend make them more unique in a future update but for now all three have only small elemental edits.

Staff Stats have not been altered, they will all function just as in vanilla.
