Hello, I was really wanting to find a mod that gives more of a reason to use clothes / mage robes over light / heavy armor in vanilla skyrim. I know there are perk / skill overhauls that do this but I am trying to stay as close to vanilla with my mods as I can. I searched around here and reddit but while some do make unarmored better they include other immersion / lore bending material that is not fitted to what I wanted, despite being amazing mods. I play with limited crafting so simply making god tier robes with one piece of armor cap is not possible.
Here are a few ideas I had. Anyone of these / combination should work:
-Head, Chest, Hands and Feet based clothes / robes have a hidden multiplier when enchanted. Example, enchanting an iron helmet gives 30 magicka, enchanting a novice hood gives 45 ect [Magic enchants only EI: Fortify Conjuration, Increase Magicka ect]
-This could instead be an enchanting perk "Magician Outfitter" etc...
"Enchanting clothes and robes with magicka based enchantments is 50% more effective"
-New perk(s) in magic schools relating to not wearing armor: "[s] Spells cast while not wearing armor increase [x] by [x%]"
[s] - School of magic
Destruction: [s] Spells cast while not wearing armor increase Damage by 25%
Conjuration: While not wearing armor, higher level undead can be raised and summoned atronach become 20% stronger
Alteration: [s]Spells cast while not wearing armor increase in effectiveness by 25% and duration by 50%
[Instead a passive -30% damage?]
Restoration: While not wearing armor undead that stray near are lit on fire and health restores much faster [%?] [other ideas?]
Illusion: Honestly there is so many fun things here to come up with I would rather be suprised [Maybe invis when outside of combat?] [more lore friendly would be to increase calm, fear, frenzy strength]
Or your own idea, BE CREATIVE!
A few new enchantments could also be made that would do the job
-Fortify Casting: When not wearing armor ALL magicka costs are reduced by 8% [This being the base]
-Magicka Mania: When not wearing armor Magicka regenerates three times as fast [Set enchantment cannot be upgraded]
-Zephyr Ward/Aura: Absorb 50 points of magicka while not wearing armor. The effective has a cooldown.
etc... BE CREATIVE !
These are just ideas. Whatever is the easiest or more interesting for someone to do- know that no matter which of these OR if you create your own idea, I will appreciate it, endorse it and in the future help you out when I get a more stable life.
Thank you all so much for reading and I hope to Talos this doesn't end up a 0 replie thread :o
