Ever been disapointed that the Chillrend you picked up at level 20 would never reach its full potential? Well now it can! You can upgrade leveled items to their next stage if you are high enough level and have the Arcane Smithing perk. The items can be upgraded by visiting any forge. The upgrade requires you to have the item to be upgraded, the material normally used for tempering the item, and a filled soul gem (size varies based on item power level). The following is a list of all leveled items in the base game:

Chillrend (also requires the Glass Smithing perk)
Gauldar Blackblade and Blackbow
Nightingale Blade, Bow, and Armor (the weapons also require the Ebony Smithing perk)
Pale Blade
Shield of Solitude
Mage's Circlet
Amulet of Articulation
Lunar Weapons

Also added were the missing tempering recipes for the Shield of Solitude and the most powerful version of the Nightingale Blade. The awarding of the Amulet of Articulation is also no longer random: it is based on level like it should have been all along.

This mod should not have any compatibility problems. All the recipes it adds are new.

Dawnguard does not add any leveled items. Dragonborn only adds three leveled items (Miraak's Sword, Mask, and Staff), which will be covered in a stand-alone mod sometime in the future.

--Change Log--
v1.0 Initial Posting
v1.1 Added Amulet of Articulation
v1.2 Fixed Amulet of Articulation awarding
v1.3 Added Lunar Weapons

--Other Notes--
Upgrading a weapon/armor piece will remove any tempering the item may have had. This is because the old item is actually being replaced by the higher level item. This replacement also means this change is persistant and will stay even if you were to remove this mod.

The mod already has all the leveled items in the base game (the Dragonborn leveled items will be added to their own standalone mod sometime in the furture). If you think it is missing one, you are wrong and are thinking of a unique (but non-leveled) item. Daedric artifacts are NOT leveled items. Please see the UESP wiki page[www.uesp.net] for more information.

Recipes only appear at the forge if you have the item in your inventory and are high enough level to upgrade it. So if you can't find the upgrade recipe it probably isn't a bug, you either aren't high enough level for the next upgrade or you already have the best version of that item. Please check the UESP wiki page[www.uesp.net] to look at the different levels and enchantments for each tier before reporting an issue in the comments.

Any new about all the other leveled items?

Really annoyed me that the items didn't level up at all. Great mod dude.

sweet, thanks for the update.

I believe it would work fine with mods that alter the in-game model or stats because they would still be using the same Item ID, they've just changed parts of the item form to use a different model or have altered stats.

will this mod work just as you say with replacer or just retextured versens of the same weapons?

Great! thanks for the (quick) answer!!

I just updated the description to make that more clear: these changes are not linked to this mod because the higher level item (which is a normal part of the vanilla game) is added to your inventory by performing the upgrade crafting. So even if you delete the mod you'll still have the higher level item.
