There’s no doubt that Skyrim has a unique ability to withstand the test of time, a lot of this is due to Bethesda building a Beautiful World to explore filled with epic battles, puzzling mysteries in Adventures to experience, but I think I would be lying if I were to say that the developers were able to achieve this all by themselves. Yes, Skyrim as a base game is still incredible in so many ways, but I think it’s the community surrounding this game that are the ones breathing new life into the franchise even today, I think Skyrim Mods are essential when it comes to Skyrim’s impressive lifespan and we have so many great minds to think for them. So that’s why today, I thought it might be a good idea to dive deep into my favorites and appreciate the great work that this community has done.
If you want to check out any of the Skyrim Mods that I mentioned in this post, all of the links will be below each Skyrim Mods, definitely check these out because it directly supports the people that continue to make Skyrim a perfect game even today. And hey, while you’re down there, why don’t you share the post and make sure you subscribe to our newsletter, I greatly appreciate your contribution, anyways, let’s get started.
Better Combat AI:
We have a mod that I find severely underrated Better Combat AI is a mod created by a user named Julie and it completely changes how battles and Sue in Skyrim, not only then enemies not run out into the open randomly during battle anymore, but they use their surroundings to avoid your attacks. Seeing this more than action, really takes me back to the impressive AI in half-life, especially since there seems to be an actual strategy involved in their combat. Now archers will switch to melee weapons before you can run up and absolutely obliterate them, teams of enemies will try to flank you rather than storing it all willy-nilly. And there are also new enemy behaviors, which means there’s a huge difference between, taking an aggressive guard or an untrained farmer just trying to defend his chickens’ honor. Better Combat AI completely alters the way you approach battles, and that’s why it’s essential to every Skyrim Mods library. VISIT MOD
Throwing weapons is a mod created by materialists and it pretty much speaks for itself, ever wanted to feel like Thor while playing Skyrim. Well, now’s your chance not only does it give you the ability to throw a huge number of weapons and vanilla Skyrim, but it also adds a ton of new fun ones to try. Whether it’s Spears, throwing knives, or even explosive potions, throwing weapons adds a whole new element to battle. It also throws a ton of new perks into the mix. So yeah, definitely check it out.

Build Your Own City – Becoming A Lord:
Becoming A Lord is a mod that is still technically in development, after giving it a try for myself. I knew I had to include it. Becoming A Lord is a mod created by Hertnzcaa that gives you the ability to build an entire city from scratch, after experiencing the Hearthfire DLC for the first time, I was a bit bummed with a lack of creativity and the actual death of homebuilding. All of that changes in becoming a lord, Now you can create an entire community filled with NPCs who actually move in and take up jobs. This is a mod for anyone who loves Base building games, like Clash of Clans, because monsters can invade and you have to do your best to defend your people at this point in time. It’s by no means, but there are still a lot of fun features to mess around with. I can’t wait to see the future of this mod and all it has to offer. VISIT MOD
Dark Brotherhood Resurrection:
Did you love the Dark Brotherhood questline and want to see more of their Rich history and infamy? Well, with the Dark Brotherhood Resurrection, you can finally do that. This mod adds 22 new quests to the storyline that are just as riveting as the original. My favorite part has to be the bully boys’ new followers that come with the mod. These are your typical Russian to battle and get killed in point four-second ratios, these followers actually have the right, they actually attempt stealth kills while you’re sneaking, which is a huge improvement over the old followers. Also, the contracts that you’re given are really fun too, each with unique and unexpected endings. VISIT MOD
Cutting Room Floor:
We have a mod that is actually technically already in the game. Skyrim comes with a lot of content, we’re talking hundreds and hundreds of things to do before you even start messing with mods, but there’s also been a lot of content cut out from the final game. The Cutting Room floor is a mod that dives deep into the game files to let you experience some of the quest and PCs items, and so much more that didn’t make the final cut. There are some real gems here. Some were cut for obvious reasons, but playing through all of this hidden content is an experience that a fan of Skyrim needs to have one feature that surprised me the most was that when you kill somebody in a village, their loved ones morn them for a set period of time, kind of morbid; I know, but also pretty fascinating how it wasn’t included in the final product. If you want to see more hidden secrets like this, definitely check out The Cutting Room Floor, It’s totally worth it. VISIT MOD
You know what Skyrim is missing many games as much as I enjoyed the Witcher 3, I would be lying if I said the car game quest wasn’t my favorite part, why doesn’t Skyrim them have something like this? Well, fear not now, it does with this flood minigame called Hazard Gambling. Hazard is a simple dice game involving cups and whatnot, and if you’re ever looking for an escape from the dangerous Adventures of drama, just stroll up to your local and play a game or two. It’s a great way to take a break from all the action, so why not give it a try for yourself; PS. If you blow all of your ripped and vacation money on gambling, I cannot be held accountable. VISIT MOD
We have a mod that’s a bit smaller than the rest on this list, but it goes a very long way. Skyrim can be a very immersive game to explore especially since it’s one of very few first-person, medieval-style adventure games. However, there are some inconsistencies that kind of snap you back into reality and the camera allows you to constantly be in the first person. Even when the game would typically force your camera out of your head during the sequences like horseback riding, and dragon flying. This mod locks you in for full immersion and another cool detail about this mod is that you can actually see your body when you look down instead of just blank space. So again, this is pretty small stuff, but trust me it goes a long way as a little bonus. Check out immersive HUD because it takes care of the UI blocking the screen and you can easily switch it on and off with the touch of a button. VISIT MOD
Beyond Skyrim Mods – Bruma:
We have Beyond Skyrim Bruma, if the world map wasn’t already big enough for you, the Bruma has a whole new land to explore, taking place in the northern region of Sierra Del, which if you didn’t know already is where Bolivian takes place. Bruma is filled with full questlines, new enemies to encounter, and tons of secrets to uncover. This mod is literally DLC-sized and holds the same quality too. Definitely keep an eye on this one because the team working on Beyond Skyrim is planning on recreating every origin of the mod, which is by no means a simple task. It’s clear the developers put a lot of thought and care into creating these Beyond Skyrim Mods. So definitely go and check them out, and send your support. VISIT MOD
Inigo – Follower:
Inigo is a mod that completely blew me away. Inigo is a follower mod. Meaning is a character that follows you around on your adventures and helps defend you in battle. There are tons of great follower mods that I really like, but I chose Inigo for this list because he’s just so detailed. So its backstory is extremely rich to discover. He tells stories you read, love, and revenge. And honestly, I never expected to care for a Skyrim character this much, let alone a character from a mod. I don’t want to give away too much because I think a lot of this storyline is best experienced blindly, but go give them a chance. Its exterior might look scary, but there is a big heart under there.

The last mod on this list is probably my favorite out of them all; Immersive Patrols. There are a lot of surprises to come across wandering the mean roads of Skyrim, but nothing compares to the exciting events that come from immersive patrols. This mod will release hundreds of soldiers into the world, whether that be Stormcloaks, Imperials. Dark Brotherhood, bandits, you name it. Basically, these groups go on patrol routes around the map of Skyrim, and occasionally the Pats meet leading to massive battles. Sometimes you might join in and pick a side, other times you maybe want to sit back, grab some popcorn and just watch the massacre. These patrols make ferrocene more alive than ever. That’s why it’s my favorite mod. VISIT MOD
