This Mod adds a ring which casts the candle light spell for an infinite duration, this ring does not take up a ring slot so both this ring and another can be worn. The ring can be bought form the mage Wuuferth in Windhelm. The ring can now be disenchanted and can now be used for other items.

This mod is great for people who want to be able to turn on and off the spell at any time, rather than having to cast the spell and wait for its duration to end. It is also useful in dark lighting mods and helps to find items in dark areas.

*This mod does require Dawnguard at present. For more details about this see common issues.

Key features:

* Adds two rings which cast the candlelight spell
* There is a warm version which has a yellow tint or the default spell which has a blue tint
* The ring also does not take up a ring slot so it can be worn with a normal ring
* The ring can be bought from Wuuferth in Windhelm
* The enchantment can be used on other items if learned
* The Ring can now be gained through the levelled items system (eg. Loot, reward)

Future plans:

* Make the ring accessible in other ways
* More merchants
* May be even craft able
* Might brining out variations (silver, emerald etc.)
* Make the warm version's floating ball have a yellow rather than blue tint

Common issues:

- Wuuferth won't trade or doesn't have the ring in his merchant list.

Wuuferth only will trade if he is in his room,(it can be found in the first door to the left in palace of kings then at the end of the hallway with an enchanting and alchemy table inside) generally he can be found between 8am-12pm in the room, though sometimes he may be walking around the castle in this case you have to wait till he makes his way back or use a cheat to teleport him to you (moveto player (npc id)).

If he does not sell the ring, check that the mod has downloaded in the mod list and that it is ticked. If problems continue delete and re-download the mod.

- Game crashes on start-up.

A very likely cause of this is the requirement of Dawnguard. The mod itself does not use its content; this was simply an accident by loading the dlc while working on the mod. I am still in the process of searching for a solution (e.g. removal of Dawnguard from its requirements) so any resolution to this issue would be appreciated in the comments below.

Thanks, ;) plan on adding some new things too, like a fire, frost and lighting version. Got them working except for the frost version which needs a bit more work.

This looks like you've made some brill improvements since I last had time to play Skyrim (other commitments and a broken computer, alas). Great idea on the 'warm' option.

This mod is glorious. I use Climates of Tamriel which makes nights darker and I used to spam Candlelight like crazy. Never again.

Nice glad you figured it out! Also, no I think I did see another candlelight ring mod somewhere but that one is not mine.

Vlindrel.... have sorted it!!! I found it was because I had an ESP with the same name, which was another candlelight ring MOD. Is that yours also? The one that is planted on the table in your first room in the College of Winterhold. But that one just works when you put the ring on your finger, and is not unenchantable

I deleted that ESP and yours straight away downloaded and put it self in my load order

I opted for this one because it sounds better.....

Cheers :)

Good to be appreciated ;), I had the same problem when using enbs, that's basically why I made it in the first place.

Thanks for the mod, I have this light mod and outdoors it looks amazing but indoors it's really dark so I keep having to use Mage light and that gets annoying. So thanks :D

hmm that is really strange

If you havent already try unsubscribing then close steam and re-open and re-subscribe.

It may also be worth doing a search in skyrims data folder for the candlelightring.esp or any files with its name. Then either delete or move them out of the folder and then go back to the skyrim launcher to see if it downloads.

But otherwise I'm not completly sure, it sounds like the laucher is simply not picking up the mod.
