Longer Dragon Battles BASE 5k

Longer Dragon Battles BASE
8 items
Dragons have 5000 Base Health. Battles last slightly longer.

Also works with Dawnguard (except Durnehviir) and Dragonborn dragons.
For the addon to fix Durnehviir, go here: Longer Dragon Battles Base 5k (Dawnguard Addon)

Revision 2: No changes, updated tags.

This is a sequel to my Longer Dragon Battles 2x, 4x, 8x mods. Because they're using a multiplier, the difference between weak and strong dragons is huge, and weak dragons are still too weak.
So instead I've just changed the Base Health of dragons to increase their endurance, and reduce the health difference between weak and strong.
Now all dragons should be much more difficult, and the strongest enemies in the game.

Because the health difference is reduced, dragons at the beginning of the game will be very difficult to take down without help from town guards and other npcs. But as you progress you will be more able to tackle dragons alone, and not have to get other people killed in the process.

See images for Health Comparison.
Longer Dragon Battles BASE 5k Dragons have equivalent health to Ancient Dragons from Longer Dragon Battles 2x.

Dragons' "Injured Percent" is also reduced, so inspite of their increased health, they only spend about the same amount of time/health on the ground injured as vanilla dragons.

This mod should NOT be used in conjunction with my other Longer Dragon Battles mods.
This mod should be compatable with most other dragon mods, depending on load order.

Other Versions:
Longer Dragon Battles BASE 2k
Longer Dragon Battles BASE 10k
Longer Dragon Battles BASE 20k

is it compatible with the 'scailing dragons with improved ai' mod?

@Snowgrim, it was due to DLC, not your mod sorry! :X

I'm not sure what's causing souls not to absorb (I've had that before too), but it shouldn't be this mod (I hope). This is a very simple mod, it only changes 3 things, DragonRace, UndeadDragonRace, and AlduinRace. And it only changes 2 values in each, 'starting health' and 'injured percentage'.
But it will probably conflict with any other mods that change stuff in the Dragon races.
I've also read that it could be a problem with Dragonborn, or the Unofficial Skyrim Patch, or just that you have too many souls already, but I don't know which is true.

@goku1984kakarot dunno but with this mod some of the dragons did not spawn at all after i killed the first one.

I like this mod but I find that these dragons are a bit tedious and annoying to kill, almost to the point where slaying a dragon is an all-day activity. Could you make one of these with a base health around 2k or something?

Ya, just fought the first dragon in the game and that fight to way to long, even with only the 5K. I loved it.

Sorry, no stacking. But the BASE 20k mod is about as high as you can go anyway, unfortunately. :)

Will the health stack if I download all of the mods? That would be HARD!

Yep just checked, should work fine on Dawnguard dragons.
