DLCs worth it ? or are the mods good enough to make up for the DLCS ?
are the dlcs worth it? i have the default skyrim with no dlcs . it is worth buying the dlcs or is the mods you get for this game good enough?

Both are good options IMO. I have yet to get Dragoborn tho.

There's a lot of DLC-sized mods. But the dlc is required to install some dlc-sized mods.

Dawnguard is really fun, Hearthfire is OK, mainly for the adoption feature and for the things it adds to mods, if you make mods. Haven't finished Dragonborn yet but it looks good. BTW you will need to add a few things to your skyrim files to use the creation kit with DG, HF and DB. How to do this is on Nexus. "How to get Creation kit to open Dawnguard-HearthFires-Dragonborn by Forzane", has the easiest way IMO.

what is the creation kit?

The tool used for creating/editing mods.

does creating/editing mods require coding knowledge ? or is it quite simple?

Dragonborn is well worth it for the setting alone. Plus Neloth, of course.

Dragonborn is most definitely worth it, Dawnguard is okay if you're into vampires, and Hearthfire is good if you want to build houses and have a family. Dawnguard was the only one I was disappointed in, probably because I'm not into vampires like the every other player out there is.

Open the Library, under tools you will find it. The kit allows you to make mods, modify them and the base game. However there are some restrictions on what you can do. Example changing color of things or re-skinning something is out. YouTube has a few how to vids about the creation kit. WARNING! BE REALLY CAREFUL WITH CHANGES YOU MAKE, OR YOU CAN ♥♥♥♥ THE GAME!!

You can install most mods without any DLC but a few will require you to own all the DLCs.
Anyway the DLCs are worth it but waiting for a sale is a good idea.

As with any Bethesda DLC both add a variety of gamebreaking items. If you are going to Dawnguard grab a mod called when Vampires attack.

I don't much care for vampires, but I did like the aetherium shards bit and the falmer history.

I havent finished Dragonborn yet, but I like it a lot so far. I liked Dawnguard just because I don't like vampires and got to kill a bunch of them. Hearthfire is nice but don't expect too much out of it. It's more like a mod than actual DLC IMO, but it is kinda fun to design houses, limited tho they are.
As far as mods go, two of my favorites are immersive weapons and immersive armors; just because they add some variety respectively. One of these days I'll try some of the quest-y mods. Probably after I finish Dragonborn and have nothing more to do.

I have to agree with Hedgie too...it was kinda nice to see the Falmer before they got corrupted, and learn a little about them.

yes the three DLC are worth it and some mods require it/have content for them.

Be careful with the mods you choose when you have no dlc's installed. You can not use a crossbow mod, unless you have the dlc Dawnguard.
