Many thanks to anyone who has given a positive rating!

This mod is part of the Improved Artifacts Collection, which can be found at this link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=204157051


============
Mod Content:
============

• Improved stats for Auriel’s Bow, including a new enchantment that has a different effect when wielded by a vampire or mortal character.
• You can now customize the visual effects that occur when hitting a foe with an arrow from Auriel’s Bow. See the customization section below for details


============
Improvements
============

ORIGINAL STATS
Damage: 13 (Equivalent to an Elven Bow)
Value: 2250
Enchantment: 20 points of Sun Fire damage, with an extra 40 points if the target is undead.
Uses: Charge/Cost = 1000/38 = 26 uses

NEW STATS
Damage: 21 (Slightly better than a Dragonbone Bow, which is 20)
Value: 25,000 (Essentially priceless)

NEW STATS WHEN MORTAL
Enchantment: 35 points of Sun Fire damage. Double damage against the undead.
Uses: Charge/Cost = 0/0 = unlimited

NEW STATS WHEN A VAMPIRE
Enchantment: 35 points of Blood Fire damage. 50% more damage against mortals (i.e. anyone who isn’t undead, a Daedra or a Dragon).
Uses: Charge/Cost = 0/0 = unlimited


============
Customization
============

The customization in this mod is handled using console commands (for more information, see this link: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Console_Commands). To use a command, open up the console and type: “Set A to B”, where A is the command name and B is a value. The console commands and their effects are given below:

ZABI_Major (Possible Values: 1 or 0)
Default: 1
There are two visual effects that can be inflicted by both the Sun Fire and Blood Fire enchantments. Against normal opponents, it will be a fairly normal shader. However, when striking a target that is weak to the effect (i.e. when Sun Fire strikes an undead or when Blood Fire strikes a mortal), it will create an enormous flame. This flame can be switched off by setting this value to 0. It can be switched on again by making this value 1.

ZABI_Minor (Possible Values: 1 or 0)
Default: 1
If, for whatever reason, you don’t want the shader to play, set this command to 0.

====================
Questions and Answers
====================

Is this mod compatible with Daedric Artifacts Improved: Dawnguard Version?
Yes.

Does this mod still allow the use of Sunhallowed Elven Arrows and Bloodcursed Elven Arrows?
Yes. Firing a Sunhallowed Elven Arrow at the sun from Auriel’s Bow will still cause the sunburst effect, and then Bloodcursed Elven Arrows will still block out the sun.

It's fine, I was just wondering. The vampire effect is really cool, I just like being a werewolf more. Thanks for the consideration!

manofwar54....I love that idea, very nice...but I don't think it's in keeping with the lore...the vampire effect is justified (in my view) because the sun-block effect shows that vampires can have an effect on the bow, but werewolves don't really enter into it. sorry

I was wondering if maybe there could be another type of enchantment if the wielder is werewolf? I don't know what it would be, I will leave it up you to decide, but I think that would be a really cool addition!

ngc1300....nothing major, just changed the enchantment visuals and gives you the ability to customize the visuals. Check the customization sections above for details

What did the update change?
Paladin Lord Isaac Aug 21 @ 11:16am 
Just a little stat boost -> daetric or something, Kinda annoying that i get to it and its already outdated by my own equipment making it obsolete, which is a shame its quite a nice bow.
Paladin Lord Isaac Aug 21 @ 11:13am 
Alright mate, ill be waiting.
But the bow already has good enchantments but i should mention its in the Dragonbon DLC.
Zim  [author] Aug 21 @ 7:34am 
Paladin Lord Isaac....never mind, I've got a great idea for it
Zim  [author] Aug 21 @ 3:57am 
Paladin Lord Isaac....OK, any thoughts on an enchantment you'd like?

Can you improve the Dwarven black bow of fate aswell?
