Altered Fist


Altered Fist adds a set of Alteration spells geared towards Unarmed combat. Scrolls and tomes for these spells can be purchased from Tolfdir at the College of Winterhold as your Alteration skill increases.

Here is what you can expect:

Oak Hands: Unarmed +8 for 60 seconds
Stone Palms: Unarmed +12 for 60 seconds
Iron Knuckles: Unarmed +16 for 60 seconds
Ebony Fists: Unarmed +20 for 60 seconds
Dragon Claws: Unarmed +24 for 60 seconds

Also, scrolls provide the same buff as tomes but with half the duration.


This mod was tested on Skyrim v1. and cleaned with TES5Edit v3.0.30.

It does not make any changes to the base game and is entirely script-driven. In other words, it should be compatible with pretty much everything! :)

I agree. This mod was a result of my being dissatisfied with how unarmed combat in Skyrim was handled. (It was also my introduction to the Creation Kit.) I plan on doing a second unarmed combat mod that is more akin to an actual skill but I've had to put it on the backburner due to other commitments.

You can't neglect the gloves of the pugilist, you have to go into enchanting so you can get more damage from the enchantment. Anybody interested in this mod should check out Way of the Monk- Part 1, and also look up other mods, like one that gives you extra unarmed damage for using a spell like oakflesh, or one that fixes the fists of steel perk.

It seems that this mod would finally put that pair of Stormcloak Officer Bracers to good use... To hell with the Gloves of the Pugilist! Good job!

That's a fair criticism. I chose Tolfdir as the vendor as he is the only one that stocks Master-level Alteration spells. The Altered Fist spells are also meant to serve as companion to the Mage Armor spells which you'd need to specialize in Alteration to take advantage of anyhow.

The only suggestion I can make is to embrace the stereotype, become a Thief, and woo Faralda with your Feline charm (and the Amulet of Articulation).

Uh... how the heck are you supposed to get into the College of Winterhold if you specialize in unarmed combat? ...well, unless you can shout. But Meo'Bruit cannot.

Seems like a cool mod. Could be interesting, if it somehow scaled with the mage armor perk (or a perk was added for it)

The mod has finally made its way to the public servers on Skyrim Nexus. Thanks for being patient, everyone!
