A
dd-Ons and Patches:

Welcome to the awakening of magic in Skyrim. The next evolution begins now.

Phenderix Magic World is the largest, most comprehensive magic mod available for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. The new features added by this mod will completely enhance your gameplay experience and unleash hundreds of new roleplaying and character options. I strongly believe that this mod should be used by every single person that plays Skyrim. It's designed for all types of characters, not just mages. Also - cool fact - it's compatible with virtually every mod made for Skyrim and should contain no major bugs or issues as it has been tested for years.

This mod makes several references that are not lore-friendly. (for instance, parodies of content from Harry Potter)
Download the patch here, in addition to this mod, to make the mod more lore-friendly and remove these references. This is an optional download.

New Content Added by Phenderix Magic World:
MANANTIS WORLDSPACE (hours of exploration)
170+ SPELLS (new elements and spell types)
ELEMENTAL COMBINATION & INTERACTION SYSTEM
80+ ARCANE ARROWS & BOLTS (craftable and improvable)
ENCHANTED WEAPONS, ARTIFACTS, & STAFFS
ELEMENTAL FIST WEAPONS
CUSTOM FOLLOWERS
BOSS ENCOUNTERS
PLAYER HOME
15+ QUESTS
AND MUCH MORE!



This mod adds a new world called Manantis, but the player is not forced to visit the new world in order to obtain most of the content added by this mod. Most content added by this mod can be purchased from select vendors across Skyrim. Therefore, visiting the new world of Manantis is an optional experience.


This mod will receive frequent updates. These updates will introduce new quests, spells, weapons, locations, and improve existing content.
I strongly encourage you to download this mod and check it out. Dislike something? Tell me and I will try to fix it. 



HOW TO GET TO THE NEW WORLDSPACE?
PC/XB1: Upon starting Skyrim with Magic World installed, the player will be given a teleport spell that can take them to Manantis. Alternatively, there is a secret wardrobe in Whiterun's Dragonsreach that serves as a gateway to Manantis.

PS4: The PS4 version of this mod is substantially different. Please read this guide for more information.

WHERE TO FIND NEW ADDED CONTENT?
Most content can be purchased from vendors in Manantis and Skyrim. A small amount of content can only be looted from bosses found in Manantis or obtained through a quest found in Manantis. Visiting the new locations in Manantis is an optional experience. You do not have to go to the new land to obtain most of the content added by this mod.

Most content added by Magic World can be purchased from a new vendor in Whiterun's Dragonsreach, Solitude's Blue Palace, Markarth's Understone Keep, Riften's Mistveil Keep, Winterhold College's Arcanaeum, and Windhelm's Palace of the Kings. (and of course from a plethora of vendors in Manantis)

The level of the player's magic skills determines what spell tomes are available to purchase from vendors. For instance, to purchase a master level destruction spell tome from a vendor, the player must have their destruction skill at the master level.

There is also a "Cheat Chest" in Farengar's room in Dragonsreach which contains most of the spell tomes, ammo, and weapons added by Magic World. A small amount of content must still be obtained from bosses found in Manantis or obtained through a quest found in Manantis.

This mod does not edit leveled lists, meaning you will not be able to buy spell tomes from random vendors across Skyrim. This has been done to enhance compatibility with other magic mods. You can only buy spell tomes from vendors in Manantis and from vendors in the Skyrim locations noted above.


This mod adds an entire worldspace complete with new locations, shops, followers, NPCs, boss encounters, quests, and purchasable items!

MANANTIS - a new magical town and island to explore! (hours of exploration await you)
How to get there? Teleport spell automatically added upon installing this mod (There is also a secret wardrobe in Dragonsreach that connects to Manantis) The teleport spell will initially take the caster to Manantis. On the second cast, it will take the caster to wherever they were before traveling to Manantis. (works similar to teleport mark and recall) The cycle will then start over.

I'm not going to put many details about the new worldspace because I want you to explore it for yourself! For a quick overview of what to expect, check out the Phenderix Magic World - Version 4.0.0 trailer found on this page or YouTube.

Sample of Locations found in Manantis: 
(Note: The lore-friendly patch changes many location names)

Manantis Town - a large town with inns, shops, student dormitories, a player house, a stable, and more
The School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - a college teeming with students and professors
Sophitia Isle - an outdoor arena like challenge area (a new way to earn gold!)
The Wall - A fortified outpost where guards try their best to protect the city of Manantis
Northern Wildlands - a land where death lingers and life falters
The Forbidden Forest - a forest containing many creatures that will definitely bite


This mod adds 170+ new and unique spells to the game along with an elemental interaction system.
