1. SkyRE (T3nd0s Skyrim Redone)
SkyRE is a complete overhaul of Skyrim, from Combat to Perks!
The mod itself comes with 8 separate modules that you can enable individually, so if you don’t like part of the mod you don’t have to enable it, however the two main modules that everyone would enjoy are the Combat and Perk overhauls.
The combat module is the one that gained my interest, have you ever plundered a dungeon and thought to yourself “Damn, that was too easy”? If so, enable this mod and you’ll be running away from battles in no time trying to recover your health, just at the cost of your dignity.
I’d recommend you use this mod alongside UFO (Ultimate Follower Overhaul) so that you can have 2 or 3 followers to back you up.

2. UFO (Ultimate Follower Overhaul)
UFO is an essential mod to improve your experience, it’s biggest feature is that it allows you to have more than one follower.
The mod also allows you to make your followers “essential” so they could never die, this is a really handy option however it could be classed as cheating.
Lastly, one option I really enjoyed with this mod was that you could tell your followers to “Relax for a While”, they would then start exploring the area you are currently in and await your return, very handy if you want to go off on your own for a bit but don’t want them to go back “home”.

3. The Dance of Death – A Killmove Mod
When slaying bandits, I always love it when the Kill Cam switches to 3rd person and you can sit in awe watching your character lop the head off them.
Well, what this mod does is it allows you to set the frequency of the Kill Cams, so if you want to see more of the epicness, then you can set the exact percentage chance of it happening.
That’s all there is to it, but it’s awesome, trust me.
