Best modds for an Archer?
Hey I was just getting back into Skyrim and I would need to get mods again I was wondering what the best mods where for an Archer to have the best experience playing that game. I have a few right now, Archers Arsenal, Arrows Stick, Longbows, and Longer Vanilla Bow Range. Any other ones I should get? What do you use?

Turn off crosshairs and use this mod SNIPER BOWS, and at night to target your prey use your shout AURA WHISPER. also check out a mod called TORCH ARROWS

you can try the Skyrim Redone (SkyRe) overhaul. it changes a lot of perks and weapons, and what not.
there are long bows and short bows. each have their own perk path in the archery perk tree. there's a ton of other changes in that mod. here's the link:

Does anyone knows the name of the Art Workshop mod collection, which can build a bridge, a house, an army town, castle, all help me to find him?

My son made a mod for me called the Vorpal Bow which can kill Kaarstage in one shot but it is not on Steam or Nexus yet.

I can suggest More Artifacts Bows by Freaky Alien Genotype - 6 bows scattered throughout Skyrim that can do special things. Also, New Weapon Artifact: Rainbow by CoNiGMa - a very beautiful weapon.

The only archer mod I have used so far (for my Bosmer Bowyer) is Archer's Companion from the steam workshop.

It adds perks to the archery tree, the ones I was most interested in were the second perks in more zoom, less stamina drain, more time slow. It also adds two perks for making arrows (hope you kept your woodchoppers axe, cause your gonna need firewood) and a perk for summoning a pet (3 strengths) like in Dragon Age's Ranger. I haven't tested the pet yet, but once I get the levels and perks, I'd probably drop the follower and summon the pet as needed.

Good luck finding what intrigues you. The sniper bow mod for buying a bow with a scope looks awesome.

I'd look into something that's more practical for applying poisons. Going into the menu before every shot seems absolutely ridiculous really

Not best by any stretch but for the occasional fun:
...basically bullet-time for Skyrim.

While it's not "archery" per se, there is something strangely satisfying about shooting people in the face with a musket. (Craftable Guns, available on the steam workshop. The pistols don't work very well though.)

A good armor mod I'd recommend for Archers is Raven Witch Armor because it fits well with the role of an archer from a stealth perspective; just don't wear the cloak that comes with the armor, from which you can choose to wear the short or long pieces that make up the main body. Another good one to try is Ashara's Elven Archer Armour mod which is based on a similar mod that I believe is available on the Nexus, but not on Steam's Workshop. For a bow, I suggest you wield Insanity's Steel Bow, which I think is a retexture of steel bows in the game. Some good player homes you can live in as an Archer are: Build Your Own Home, Hunter's Treehouse, Ranger Valley Lodge, Nyrikki, Creeks, Hunter's Cabin of Riverwood, and Willow Cottage. As an alternative to any of these, you could also try Bambinator's shack mods since they are pretty good too.
