Ghostlier Ghostblade

I wanted to bring the Ghostblade in line with the higher-tier swords in the game; overall it had terrible stats in comparison with them. It also didn't for some reason have the 'ghost trail' effect the very similar looking Drainheart Sword had, which I threw in as well.

The Ghostblade now does 13 base damage with the enchantment now 3 seconds long. At 100 skill, Legendary quality and Armsman V it should cap out at 87 damage a swing. (Compare to a Daedric Sword's 84 damage.) It also now looks cooler when you swing it around in the dark like a crazy person.

The sword can be found in the barrow Ansilvund in the Eastern mountains between Riften and Windhelm. UESP Wiki has information if you need help finding/completing it here:

Included are 3 variants and a bow from a range of balanced to roflOP for you to upgrade at your leisure.

The bow fires faster but does relatively less damage from its low weight.

Rev. 3
Raised base damage to 13 and fixed the green absorb stamina effect. (oops)

Rev. 4
Raised crit damage and added 3 sidegrades to the Ghostblade in the Misc section of the forge.

Rev. 6
Added missing tempering options to sidegrades, and they are easier than the original to temper.

Rev. 7
Added bow variant.

They should be under 'Draugr' for upgrading/tempering and the original blade needs to be picked up in Ansilvund

Note: I was trying to see if I could find a smithing mod that lets you upgrade everything to legendary so I could get the Ghostblade to legendary wiithout having to spam Smithing fortify potions, but the only one I could find "Legendary Smithing Upgrades" conflicts with this mod, as it allows the Ghostblade to be upgraded, but drops it's base damage if installed, which kinda defeats the purpose..

If it's possible Snipeh, I'd like to see some customizable mix and max color options with the ghostblade and it's trail, like say, Dark Red with a Black ghost trail, or Orange with a red trail, and so on. The blue one already looks incredible, but if the user could add some personal touches to it, it would be even better.

Can you mak a two handed version from the Ghost Blade wich ignores the armor from the enemies ?

@smahi1994 there is a set of armor that matches your description on the nexus.
