Recommended Mods
What are some highly recommended and enjoyed mods? I saw the pinned list but theres a lack of information there. I would rather use steamworkshop anyway. So what are some GAMEPLAY mods (not skins or cheats like a godly follower) that will improve gameplay?

If you're looking for a really good quest mod try out "Wyrmstooth", it is a huge DLC sized quest mod. "The Dance of Death" is a kill move overhaul mod I like. You might consider this a skin but "SkyUI" makes the interface vastly better over the regular one and many mods require that you have it anyway.

Lots of mods come down to what your looking for like if you want harder combat, quests, immersion mods, etc. and personnel tastes. For Example some people like to use "iNeed - Food Water and Sleep" where if you don't do those things you can die. I have never even tried this mod however because I don't want to worry about things like that when I'm playing.

The best advice is to think about what you want to get out of Skyrim since you can mod it to be just about anything you can imagine. You can use tons of Immersion mods to make it more realistic, tons of combat overhauls to make as hard as Dark Souls, or just use countless quest mods to never run out of things to do. Once you have an idea of how you want to play, try out one mod at a time that does those things and keep it if you like it.

My favourite base combo
you might find someyhing in here,
there's link to formentioned (with respect) Wyrmstooth ;)
Check out SkyRe, it redoes all the skill trees, provides new systems for stealth and crafting, and plays well with Frostfall.

audio overhaul 2.........immersive sounds add a lot to the game
ultimate combat/deadly combat for a gameplay change! I like ultimate combat with the hardcore setting, but the animatuions sometimes bug out, that might annoy some people and those should go for deadly combat instead.
Highlevel enemies..........adds more different enemies at higher levels, can be quite hard with combat mods.

SkyRe is nice, too, but it is very focused on those talent points and for me that doesnt fit an elder scrolls game.
It is very very specific in your choices. You cant just be a "bow and a bit melee" adventurer with skyre, you have to choose a specific bow type and a very specific weapon type like "scimitars".
And it buufs weapons a bit too much compared to creatures, all creatues will be very harmless with SkyRe.

Use Project S.T.E.P and the /tesg/ website recommendations for a good idea on what to use.

I found a mod that lets you craft the three different coloured swords from eragon. Blue, Red, Green. They were very powerful. Fast attack speed and when I was fighting, the armor rating on enemies didn't seem to matter at all.

Upping experience/perks via playing some of the Modders' dungeons and quests can be fun, and immersive
Op went missing!

op got busy and is looking for immersive mods,not cheat mods or armour/weapon mods (that work as cheat mods because they are far too good). I don't really want quests either
