This mod is very little, unintrusive, and very light... It's compatible with everything and may be installed/uninstalled thousand times without problems. Load it as last in your load order and Enhanced Enemy AI will change FOREVER your Skyrim battles...
Try it and... have fun!

This mod covers all vanilla Skyrim NPCs (so, if you are using some DLCs and want to enhance also new DLC NPCs, you have to check the updated version on my site: http://erkeilmods.altervista.org)

You will find all my other updated version of this mod (Enhanced Enemy AI for Dawnguard and/or Dragonborn DLC users) and all my other mods:

Enhanced Mighty Dragons (video review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ0NJRHWK8Y)
ERSO (video review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgrzaFsYZB4)
Lord of the Dead
Skyrim NPC Overhaul (video review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1epix94VDUg)

Have Fun!


1) Description
2) Combat Styles
3) Compatibility
4) Incompatible


All enemies (humans, humanoids, animals, undead and monsters – except for Dragons) have enhanced combat styles.
Now your enemies are smart and dangerous, for a more challenging and engaging game. Feel new game experiences and exciting duels and battles!
This mod doesn’t use scripts, and may be installed/uninstalled easily and without dangers for your saves.
This mod is really light and non-intrusive, but his effects are visible and dangerous…


I’ve only changed all the vanilla “combat styles”, nothing more. But… You will experience new ways to fight and game feelings. ;)
Enemies will use more often and better spells, bashing, wards, strikes and so on…


This mod is compatible with most of other combat mods, as:
Ace – Combat Skills
Dragon Combat Overhaul
Dual Wield Parrying
Duel – Combat Realism
Deadly Combat
Skyrim Redone (SkyRe)
Tk Hitstop
Ultimate Combat
Locational Damage
and a lot of others… if you load EEAI after the other combat mod/s you are using

This mod is fully compatible with all my mods.

In general, this mod is fully compatible with anything. It’s lite, doen’t use scripts and changes only vanilla combat style, giving you really fun! ;)


It's only incompatible with "Better Enemy AI" mod

This made my sneak skill so useless, the NPCs spots me at insane ranges when sneaking far from them (and I'm sneak level 100 wearing muffled boots) but atleast it got rid of the silly scenario where you're right in front of them and they don't see you at all because you're in a not-so-dark shadow.

Went to erkeilmods.altervista.org to find a DLC version of this mod but couldn't find one. Could you please help me with this issue please?

can you do one to fix the buggy navigation of things going to a destination? so many times im stuck having to follow someone around (the companions, barbas, etc.) and they end up running off the road into a tree just to turn around every five minutes, or at the worst of times, getting stuck in an endless loop running in circles... maybe you can do something about this.

Ive been running this and I am satisfied greatly, along with DUEL...but are there any differences/comparisons to "BETTER ENEMY AI"....and also what other combat mods would you recommend for realism and more challenge...thank you this mod really is great

This has to be one of the best ideas for the Skyrim game overall, the challenge goes up without it being overbearing.

Downloaded this earlier when it was still on Nexus, but wanted to say thanks, amazing improvement!
Using this and Immersive creatures mod was just making my way through Skulldafn and had to turn difficulty to adept to beat the vicious, smart enemies ganging up on me :D! And on adept it kept being challenging and fun...
So great, I allways hated the vanilla difficulty system of only gimping your dmg dealt and received, and then just hacking a longer time at mindless enemies- also felt pretty contradictory in vanilla that the "better" you`d developed your char, the more you had to downgrade their damage, kind of make them "worse" again to have any challenge.
Thanks Erkeil!
