Arcane Blacksmith Enhanced

This mod adds three new perks to the smithing tree.

*Soul Gem Smithing - This perk does exactly what you'd imagine it does. It allows for the creation and transmutation of soul gems between types. It also allows for the refusing of fragments into a petty gem. It also allows for gems to be broken down into multiple smaller gems.

* Spell Scribe - This perk allows you to break down some common spell tomes into scrolls (in case you need a spell and have no magicka left). This perk also allows you to write your own scrolls if you already know the spell.

Right now it only works with the following spells:
- Fireball
- SoulTrap
- Magelight
- Invisibility
- Fast Heal
- Bound Bow
- Bound Battleaxe
- Bound Sword
- Lesser Unlock (new spell that unlocks novice and apprentice level locks.)
- Greater Unlock (new spell that unlocks novice, apprentice, adept, and expert level locks.)
- Grand Unlock (new spell that unlocks any lock that doesn't require a key.)
- Bound Pickaxe (new spell that conjures up a pickaxe for those mages who don't want to carry one.)
- More vanilla and custom spells are planned in the near future.

* Staff Crafting - This perk lets the user create several different staves out of fairly common ingredients and an unenchanted staff template.

* This mod also introduces two new spells that aren't entirely confined to a scroll:
- Bound Pickaxe - This spell conjures forth a magical pickaxe which has no weight. The effect lasts for 1 minute.
- Magical Ore Mining - This spell allows the mage to magical separate ore from the surrounding rocks.

v 1.4 - Added scrolls and tomes for bound pickaxe and magical ore mining spells.
Added the tomes to some low level conjuration and alteration leveled lists.

v 1.3 - Added more scrolls recipes for the Spell Scribe perk.
Added the lesser, greater, and grand unlock spells to the game.
Added the ability to break down larger soul gems into multiple smaller ones.

v 1.0 - Initial Release

More scrolls for the Spell Scribe.
More staves for the Staff Crafter.

Gus for his Magickal Ore Extraction spell, which I pretty much stole outright because it worked so well (with his consent on the condition that I credit him here). You can find his mod here:

great mod, one question though:
is the black soul gem supposed to be uncraftable, or did something go wrong during my download?

Okay - the staff options are limited - BUT THEY DO WORK ... but also, if like me you have the Smithing Mod that creates EMPTY Staff's ... they WILL NOT WORK ... you MUST use this mods Staff menu creation options.

Everything else works just as the above discription states ... :)

Okay - just trying to make sure I understand ... THey are empty and you go to the Enchanting Table or what to "power the up" w/a certain Enchantment?

You need to create an empty staff in order to create a powered one. So there are staves that don't do anything, but they're meant to be "blanks" for the powerful staves.

Wait - Bretton, R U saying they are just "empty" staffs and can do nothing w/them? o..O Because that is what I am NOT looking for - Empty Staff Creation - ?? I can find plenty of mods that do that.

what's the point of the staves if they don't do anything

Include smashing petty soul gems into "worthless'" soul fragments!

do that however you like

its a waste of time looking for fragments and its not found as chest loot or personal items loot on the vanquished

fragments are actually valuable

Ok thanks & for the supa dupa fast response :)

I just took the idea of a mining spell from Gus's mod, it's not meant to include his mod entirely.

A quick question - Gus has updated his 'Magical Mining Mod' are you going to add this updated version to your mod?
