Dangerous Monsters - Normal

Dangerous Monsters

No longer do skyrims beasts become minor pests at level 15, Dangerous Monsters changes the stats of creatures such as trolls, bears and sabre cats, making them formidable foes.

I was saddened to see that how rappidly Skyrims wild animals turned from scary monsters to minor pests as I leveled, so i fixed it. Hopefully there are some like minded people out there who want battles with bears to be gritty and intense, rather then clicking a few times and climbing back on your horse.


there are 3 different options to choose between when installing the mod, these are:


this version is still makes the monsters considerably harder than the vanilla ones,
but they will eventually get too easy. This is for people who want a tougher fight at
the start but don't want to have to wait until they're a high level to be able defeat skyrims wildlife.

This version is leveled so as to keep them hard for as long as possible, but youll still end up needing
the normal version sooner than you'd think.


This is the version I reccomend you start with, they'll put up a good fight for most of the game,
but dont expect to be able to kill them as early. This turns defeating the creatures into a real milestone,
and makes them something to be feared for even high level characters.


The normal version keeps the beasts tough for a long time, but as long as you keep
playing you'll need this at some point. All the creatures stats are aproximatly double what
they are in the normal version. This will keep the creatures tough well up towards level 80, but you may want to activate this
around to level 50 for an extra challenge. If you're not at that level yet though, just keep using the normal version
until you feel it's too easy.

Please, feel free to tell me if you encounter any issues or have any ideas on how to make the mod better, just leave a comment or PM me. Also, if you like the mod, giving it a thumbs up it helps alot.

This mod is also on the skyrim nexus:

Special thanks to Kodiak412 for his invaluable help testing the mod

This is an exciting mod. Any chance you may improve other "push overs" like skeletons and draugr? The skeletons were actually creepy the first couple times I ran into them (until I realized a single swing of my sword shatters them) :(

not at level 15 atleast not unless he gets fus ro dah'd of a cliff, but I really intended it to maek being able to kill these things a significant milestone. In real life you'd have to be pretty damned skilled to eve stand a chance against something like a troll. I may, however make a leveled version that makes them beatable earlier, so check back from time to time.

Is a troll with your mod even beatable at level 14 or 15? i saw that its now at level 34. I am thinking of getting your mod, i love a good challege..maybe more than normal, but i dont want impossible. I also use more powerful dragons caues i got sick of seeing normal creatures kill the star of the show...dragons. I play on expert. So im interested. I just dont want to run away from every encouter till im like level 30.

@ rape master

theyr'e not leveled so they'll stay the same level for the whole game, but wolves really aren't impossible to kill. I loaded a level one character with no armour and an iron sword and a normal wolf is only a relativly tough fight. far from impossible. without the mod active I could kill it in about 3 hits. If anything I think i should make them stronger, perhaps i can reach a compromise by adding a rare form of stronger wolf, not sure when I might do that though. I was playing on master by the way.
