Stronger Daedric Artifacts

Most Daedric Artifacts were modified.

-Higher damage/armor rating
-Powerful enchantments
-Unlimited charges
-Most are now disenchantable and improveable
-Worth more gold
-Stack with smithing perks

In the Elder Scrolls lore, daedric artifacts are ultra powerful items crafted by the god-like daedra, granting those who wield them with supreme power. While they should be the best items in the game, in Skyrim most of them are quite wimpy.

Bethesda made some weak and some a bit stronger, allowing gamers to find artifacts that are suitable to their level throughout the game, trying to never make the experience too tough or too easy. Thing is, I hate overly leveled gameplay and dumbed down items (especially daedric artifacts); it stops gameplay from being dynamic and exciting.

Here is what I did to upset the balance a bit:


-Fixed glitch with Ebony Blade. See update history for details.



(DMG: Base Damage before any enhacements like smithing, perks, etc.)
*Approximation: This was as accurate as I could get it

Dawnbreaker: DMG: 12>25.....Fire DMG: 10>35.....$740>8000

Ebony Blade: DMG: 13>37.....$2000>20000.....Now has speed/reach of, and listed as a 2-handed weapon

Mace of Molag Bal: DMG: 17>28.....Magic and Stamina DMG: 25/25>35/35.....$: 1257>12860

Mehrunes' Razor: DMG: 11>22.....Added Banishing 100.....$: 860>8690

Skull of Corruption: DMG: 20>80.....DMG (from dreams): 50>115*.....$: 1680>17480

Volendrung: DMG: 25>40.....Added chance to Paralyze 1 sec.....$: 1843>18790



(AR=Base Armor Rating before any enhacements like smithing, perks, etc. )

Ebony Mail: AR: 45>55.....Poison DMG: 5>10.....$: 5000>30000

Ring of Namira: Fortify Stamina: 50>100.....$: 870>8700

Savior's Hide: AR: 26>45.....Resist Magic/Resist Poison: 15/50>25/100%.....$: 2679>26790

Spellbreaker: AR: 38>51.....$: 277>27752

Masque of Clavicus Vile: AR: 23>33.....$: 1277>1500
-Prices are 20% better, +10 Speech, and Magicka regenerates 5% faster changed to 25 / 25 / 25

Ring of Hircine: $: 400>4000

(this list is not exhaustive and needs to be updated)

The following items can be disenchanted, but cannot have their enchantments put on other items: all staffs, ebony mail, ring of namira, saviors hide, spellbreaker, masque of clavicus vile

Ebony Blade enchantment does not work when put on other items

Newly enchanted items with daedric enchantments may have unlimited charges until you reboot the game, then they return to normal (thanks for the info Psychotic Killer Cheeseburger)
*this may no longer be the case; unlimited charges are now working for me. Further testing is required.

Featured in Le Dagz's " Skyrim Mod Review:Top 5 Must-Have Weapon Expansions!"
Check above for the video, or here:

This mod should be compatible with almost all other mods. It only adds a few
enchantments and buffs item statistics and little else. It should therefore
be compatible with all mods except those that change these same stats.

This mod is save game compatible; no need to start a new playthru.

Any issues can likely be fixed by altering your load order.

As with any modded game, you can either put this mod lower so that it
overwrites the changes of your other mods, or put this higher, so other mods
overwrite it.

If you have a lot of mods installed, its always a good idea to create a
merged or bashed patch.

I welcome all comments, feedback, bug reports, etc.
Thank you for viewing this, and I hope you enjoy the mod.

I feel that this mod helps greatly but does not balance the game very well. But in the fact that you can make a iron dagger better than almost all of the artifacts it does make sinse to make them more powerfull. Great mod!

I think this is a great mod overall. But I feel overpowered when dual weilding dawnbreaker and Mehrunes Razor

This mod is very good. Please make this mod for the special version of Skyrim as well.

Hey, cool mod, i have one question though, what happens if you already have some of the artifacts, for instance, 3 days ago i went on an artifact spree and got almost all of them, what will happen to them? Will they simply have the same stats as before, or will the mod affect them still?

lol really Zujew

Can I please, please ask one thing of you? In Dawnbreaker's description, a word is spelled incorrectly. You have it saying "firey" instead of "fiery", as much as of a pain as this request is, would you mind changing that?

Is it just me or this mod makes the Ebony Blade a bit slower to swing?
Godfather of Illuminati Jun 7, 2016 @ 7:29am
