This was a mod I created to make looting more worthwhile and fun. After playing a while, I just stopped looting most of the time due to how terrible the loot was. Now the drop rate is higher.

If you like it, please rate it well. Thanks!

It never made sense to me that bandits who raided people enough to trigger quests to stop them had next to nothing on them. Or Draugr that guarded these tombs had magicka, shouts and 'sometimes' potions, enchanted weapons, and jewelry but only sometimes despite they're guarding these places for ages.Even worse, Mages, Necromacers, and Thalmor have far less (next to none) of the things they should like ingredients, potions and gems. It just never made sense to me. Then I looked at the drop rates and discovered almost everyone but bosses had around 5-15% chance of dropping loot. Absurd! Now, the odds are in your favor. I changed the odds in our favor and increased the coin on Draugr, falmer, and bandits. Also increased gems on Dwermer machines.

Changes are:

Bandits - more coin, generally over 100 and jewelry. What kind of bandit doesn't have some decent coin and jewelry? They should have loot. They are looters!

Thalmor, Mages, Necromancers - more potions, gems, scrolls, soul gems and ingredients now. The kind of loot these NPCs should be carrying and if they are carrying it, we should get it when they die.

Dwermer spheres, spiders and centurions - more soul gems and gems.

Draugr have far more loot now. Potions, *enchanted weapons*, soul gems, much more coins, and jewelry. They're guards of the crypts. They should have items to fight off looters. I also liked the idea of them being placed there with jewelry and whatever money they had.

Falmer have much more coin and more potions and ingredients. Not all have as many ingredients and potions, but they have notable coin given the fact that they aren't going to head out into Tamriel and spend it. But they kill anything that comes their way and apparently loot as well or they wouldn't have the coin at all. So they should have more coin. Much more. Not spending while killing + looting often = more coin. Also more magicka related items because they were snow elves and they all use magic to varying degrees.

It may seem too much but think about the shopkeepers...
They will sell a single potion to 100-1K

That's insane so this mod actully makes it balanced

I appreciate the work you put inside this, but everybody should be warned that this increase in loot is simply TOO MUCH. I stumbled in a random dungeon, draugr infested. Came out as a made man. Literally drownig in money, soul gems of all qualities and tons of enachanted weapons.
This mod is working totally as intended, no bugs or such.
But it is potentially game - breaking since it feels like breaking the games economy.
Needs a liitle more balance, maybe just more money, but less items. I found jewellrey for 500 - 1200 on almost any draugr. In the end i had 20+ necklaces for a total of 20.000 gold. +rings,+weapons,+filled soul gems, + a couple of hundred gold on any foe...
JUST A LITTLE TOO MUCH atm. Had to uninstall it after one dungeon to keep the balance & motivation of the game...

duggelz is the creator of the "Left Hand Rings". Or it says he uploaded it. Anyway great mod combo.

One of the best mods on my list. It also works great with whatever "Left-handed rings" that I have. Can't remember who made it though. With these two mods, I end up with more left-handed rings than regular. :D
