Grey's Guide to Fighting Draugr
Because a lot of people have raised concerns Draugr beign hard to kill with this mod, I have compiled a few tips that should prove helpfull in defeating them.

In no particular order:

1. Wards

- Not many people may know this but wards block shouts. Even if you use a small ward and it breaks, you will still have succesfully blocked that shout.

2. Become Ethereal

- You are immune to all shouts while you are ethereal. This will let you get up close to draugr and prepare an attack or give you a chance to escape.

3. Unrelenting Force

- The first word of UF now knocks targets over. If you can manage to FUS lock the draugr they cant fight back.

4. Frost/Fire Breath

- These now also push targets over (2nd/3rd words) And they both deal massive amounts of damage.

5. Ice Form

- Buys you a fair amount of time to escape or plan another attack.

6. Paralysis

- Better than ice form as you can attack your target while they are down.

7. Stealth

- If you can one-shot draugr without them even noticing you then you are cheering. This may not always be an option though.

8. Using summons/followers as decoys

- Send your follower or summmon into the fray while you attack from a distance

9. Spellbreaker

- The ward effect will not stop all of the shouts, but it will be pretty helpful to an extent.

10. Illusion

- If you have the Master of the Mind perk, the master illusion spells will be extremely usefull in dealign with draugr.

11. Restoration Magicks

- Extremely underated, but if you are having trouble with undead then it may be a good idea to invest in them. The circle spells and the repel undead spells are all excellent. The spells from dawnguard are also great to use

12. Dawnbreaker or other enchanted weapons

- Anti-undead weapons are a good investment if you have having trouble with draugr,

13. Dont let yourself be FUS-locked

- If you are with a group of draugr, they can easily prevent you from ever standing up by continually using UF

It's too messy in the CK to edit each type of draugr induvidually to alter thier shouts (there are hundreds of Draugr files). Not to mention the amount of conflicts that would cause. If it were easy I would have done it, but if you use the above tips you should be fine.

I personally like how high level dragur a much harder to kill. Make fights with them much more interesting

Indeed. Now if only I could find a mod where the Dragonborn doesnt take the whole of the fourth era to get up.. :/

If you use nexus, then is a mod that alters the "Get Up" animation. I use it and it reduces the getup time dramatically. Especially if you fall on your back. That, and it makes you even more epic during a fight with the new UF.

Wow! Wards can block shouts!? I did not know that until reading this, Thank you for the tip Mr. Greylight and thanks for another awsome mod! even if it is nine months later. ( You learn something new everyday! )
I like this change. Even if your character becomes invincible the undead are still challenging.

On youtube ESO has a guide to get unlimited majicka that would make wards easier to use against drauger.
