Better Nightingale Armor

Everybody knows the Nightingale Armor. It is, hands down, the most awesome armor in the game (tied with Daedric, of course). Over half of all armor mods are retextures of it. But, when you finally get it, you are terribly disapointed by how much it sucks. Seriously, here's what its enchantments are, at their most powerful:

Nightingale Armors
Hood: Illusion spells cost 17% less magicka.
Armor: +40 Stamina and 50% Frost Resistance.
Gloves: Lockpicking and One-handed is 25% better.
Boots: Muffle.

Rather disappointing, right? There are a bajillion boots with muffle, Lockpicking fortification is useless due to the zillions of lockpicks you have at that point in the game, and nobody uses Illusion.

So, I've made this mod that gives the Nightingale set better enchantments. The below enchantments is at the armors' most powerful.

Better Nightingale Armors:
Hood: Prices and Archery is 40% better.
Armor: +50 Carry weight, +50 Health, +40 Light Armor,
Gloves: Pickpocketing and One-Handed is 40% better.
Boots: Muffle, +50 Sneak

NOTE: To all you illusion fanatics, I'm sure about 90 percent of you could enchant a ring that fortifies your illusion better than the origional Nightingale Hood.

NOTE #2: For those that don't have the armor yet, you can get it in the Thieves Guild questline.

Final Thought: Be sure to check out my other mods!

Thanks for this mod, i really wanted to use the nightningale armor but i had to use the ancient shrouded, because the enchants were better but it looked ugly imo

I like this mod, however, I fell that the enchantments are too overpowered. Could you make another mod that makes the nightingale armor have weaker versions of the enchantments in this mod?
