    What mod are you using for that armor with the white shirt, mind sending the link? :)

  • Faravus Gaming

    that gameplay was not taken from wildcat, with wild cat on arrows are a one shot death lol

  • Old Crow

    About to do yet another play. Thanks for doing the work of hunting down mods

  • MrPetur4o

    Fantastic list, thank you!

  • Viruxz Gaming

    Can i use this mod for my xbox 360?

  • ∞Phantasm

    Great list! However, Sturdy Dragons is now removed from Nexus... any recommendations for an alternative?

  • Nicholas Williams

    None of these mods enhance combat, only hp damage ratios in difficulty, and add other annoyances... The dodge mod was the only real combat mod. The rest is glorified shit. It's like they spent a couple hours making the mod then they upload with the title "Dynamic combat" LMAO hahaha

  • Mango Meow

    Is wildcats still worth installing? I already have Combat evolved and Deadly Combat :/

  • philipp plein

    Dat Witcher 3 combat music though.. lol

  • dzwadziescia

    'relistik' :D

  • 1293ST

    uhh .. special edition ... nope

  • SVM

    So, I have over 30+ mods installed right now. There all under 200 MB do u think it will interfere with gameplay? Or possibly cause lag?

  • Eftsenhen 0

    Sturdy dragons I think was removed

  • Davi Pogorzelski

    Allot of frame drops eh?

  • helebarda344

    Went full out on these mods Dragon Priests two shot me and it becomes unbalanced in some moments For going against normal enemies it really made my experience much better.

  • 1Delta3Grim7

    The Visible Favorited Gear... ;-; I need that one.What's stopping me? (...I'm on Xbox...)

  • KJ L

    Thanks koubitz, I'm enjoying this line up so far haha, I hope everyone will try this

  • Blue Shizuka

    A little late to the party I know lol but do you know if there's a mod that allows you to use a directional based combat system? Like For Honor or Mount & Blade for example.

  • Adam Davies

    -____- special edition

  • Dvo rak

    i hope AI will be smarter with trapsand i'd like it if AI were more brave when it comes to climbing stuff and jumping

  • Hausi

    For those who can't find a proper dodge mod on the nexus: Go and search for The Ultimate Dode Mod 4.0 on other sites. It's available for SSE and it works extremely well. The downside is that it is not compatible with FNIS.


    I use Ultimate Combat 3 + Deadly Dragons, my Dragons are f** Monsters and normal enemis are somethimes sick strong i have to dode / parry alot and its very hard to go drew some dungeons.You know its hard if you Quicksafe after each enemi xD

  • Skeeter McTavish

  • T.O.G. That One Guy

    why only special edition?...


    How to mod nipple for male only.

  • JacamoJK

    i just increase the damage of my weapons so npcs die in 2-3 hits but because im a high level they already block more often, and the mod that increases the special move frequency so i can finish them more often, sorted no need to go that far in my opinion

  • Liam Eady

    superb selection of mods. Many I didn't have before that I must make room for now.

  • Chris Agatep

    Very well made mod showcase

  • Reistoph Milkayr

    Does all this affect fps?
