Geralt Light Armor & Witcher Swords

A Light Armor version of the Raven's Armor from TW2, complete with dual steel / silver swords worn on the back and a couple of extra little goodies.


Some of you may have noticed that this mod was previously up on the Workshop but was taken down. This was because someone decided to upload my work without asking me first.

This version is very similar to the old one, except that the issue of the armor showing up as Wolf Armor in the inventory / crafting screens has now been resolved, and brand new models have been added.

Update 03/11/2012: Further work on this mod has been put on hold as I don't have the time at the moment to keep it maintained and updated. It's still not perfect but I think it is feature complete enough for some people to get enjoyment out of it. Thanks to you all for your support.



- Standalone mod that doesn't replace any existing NPC armor.
- Benefits from Light Armor skill and perks.
- Male armor only.
- Craftable from a forge.
- Fully improvable on a workbench.
- Two different sets of Raven's Armor: a basic un-enchanted version and an upgraded version complete with some good witchery enchants.
- Fully craftable and improvable dual Witcher's steel/silver swords.
- Slimline armor.
- Silver sword comes in 1H/2H variants.
- Cat potion (Night Eye effect) available for sale at Khajiit caravans. Very handy if you use a mod that makes dungeons and nights darker!

** Required Mods : you must first install nockchaa's "1HD Weapons on Back" mod (, or the 1H Silver Sword will be drawn from the hip instead (in 3rd person mode) **


A few notes on armor ratings and balance:

After deliberating over whether to make Geralt's armor light or heavy, I decided to try and find a happy medium between both. I feel light armor is more appropriate for a witcher, but as anyone who has played a light-armored character on Expert or Master knows, melee combat can be extremely unforgiving on the high difficulty settings. I have therefore allocated armor ratings which I think give sufficient survivability without being overpowered. If you disagree, I'd love to hear your comments.

About the swords:

The 2 Handers swing faster than the vanilla greatswords, but do less damage to make them balanced. The standard Witcher swords do the same Damage Per Second (DPS) as the Skyforge Steel swords. The Superb ones are more in line with Ebony / Daedric. Also, the 1H sword benefits from, and levels, 2H skill.


Known Issues:

- Some clipping issues when mixing this armor with vanilla armor pieces.


Additional Recommended Mods (available at the Skyrim Nexus):

+ Witcher Eyes - replaces the default yellow eye texture.

+ Duel - Combat Realism - improves melee combat in Skyrim by putting an emphasis on blocking and conserving stamina while also improving the enemy AI.

+ PISE - increases the difficulty and level scaling. I recommend playing with this mod on Master difficulty and not using health potions. This makes alchemy very useful and means you actually have to use your poisons and fortify armor/weapon potions if you want to survive bosses and groups of enemies.


How to get the armor:

Available at the forge, under the MISC tab (requires the Steel Smithing perk):


Raven Boots (xx001003)
Raven Armor (xx001004)
Raven Gloves (xx001005)

Upgraded and enchanted:

Superb Raven Boots - Stamina regenerates 30% faster. (xx001009)
Superb Raven Armor - +20% magic resistance and Two-Handed weapons do 10% more damage. (xx00100A)
Superb Raven Gloves - Created potions are 20% more powerful (xx00100D)

Or you can add the items via the console:

1. Open the console with the `(tilde) key.
2. Use the command "player.additem" and then the item code (listed above) where xx = the load order number of the Geralt Light Armor plugin (see the Plugins tab in NMM) e.g. "player.additem 1E001003 1" to get the Ravens Boots.
3. Alternatively you can search for the item codes using the "help <keyword> 4" (e.g. "help raven 4") to give you a list of all the items in the game with the word "raven" in the name. Hit PgUp to scroll up the list.

How to get the Witcher swords:

Available at the forge, silver swords under the MISC tab, steel under Steel. All require the Steel Smithing perk :

Steel Witcher Sword (xx001012A)
Silver Witcher Sword (xx001011029)
Silver Witcher Sword 1H (xx0010101F)

To improve the Silver sword, you need at least 60 Smithing Skill and the Arcane Blacksmith perk.

Or you can add the items via the console, again using the above method.

How to get the Cat potion:

Available from Khajiit caravans or via the console. The item code for the potion is xx00101B.

I'm new to modding, so I wouldn't be surprised if someone finds a bug or two. Please let me know in the comments and I'll try to fix it asap.



A big "thank you" to a few awesome dudes over at the Skyrim Nexus, without whom this mod wouldn't have seen the light of day: L0rd0fWar for doing the port of the original armor models and for giving me permission to make the mod standalone, Dahaka002011 for his cunning dual swords trick and to TheXenophobe for his tasty black pants texture.

Credit and respect also to CD Projekt Red for creating their awesome Witcher 2 models and for giving modders permission to use them, of course.

is there a way for me to upgrade the 1h silver swords at a grindstone? I have steel smithing and it isnt letting me upgrade my sword. if anyone can help me with this, it would be awesome. thx

Do the silver and steel swords both function the same, or does the silver one work better on dragons, trolls, skeletons, draugr, etc etc etc.?
SacredAncient Jan 20, 2017 @ 7:02pm 
Do you think in the future you could make the one handed versions appear on your back like the two handed ones? it seems better that way instead of having two swords on your side if you can plz?
