Combat ModuleEdit

This module makes great changes to combat tactics. All changes made apply to all actors. The new combat system heavily relies on stamina (and to a lesser extent health) and requires using more tactics, especially in combination with other modules.

Note: Some of these elements can be toggled on/off in game

Standing Stones ModuleEdit

This module changes the effects the standing stones have on the Dragonborn. They now have both a positive and a negative effect. All related loading screens have been adjusted accordingly.

  • Warrior Stone: unchanged
  • Thief Stone: unchanged
  • Mage Stone: unchanged
  • Apprentice Stone: magicka amount and regeneration boost, but reduces magic resistance
  • Serpent Stone: 50% bonus to sneak attacks, but 20% negative bonus on all attacks if target is alerted.
  • Lord Stone: 25% magic resistance, but 25% increase in damage from non-magical attacks
  • Atronach Stone: adds 150 to magicka, spell absorbation remains unchanged, almost negates magicka regen (-95%)
  • Lady Stone: 50% boost to stamina and health regeneration, but 50% reduced magicka regeneration
  • Steed Stone: carry weight increased and frost resistance, but weakness to fire
  • Lover's Stone: damage taken and dealt both boosted by 50%.
  • Tower Stone: unlock locks up to expert difficulty infinitely
  • Shadow Stone: 25% boost to pickpocket chance, 25% higher buying prices
  • Ritual Stone: triples duration of summons, 25% spell magnitude reduced for other spells

Enemy ScalingEdit

In vanilla Skyrim, enemies don't level well above level 50 and generally lack perks and spells. The changes made by Skyrim Redone don't apply to dragons.

Enemy LevelingEdit

  • Enemies of vanilla level x now vary between 2/3x and 4/3x (for example: vanilla level 10 now varies between level 5 and 15)
  • High level and boss level enemies scale up to level 100
  • Enemies at vanilla level 1 scale between 1 and 3
  • Thieves and random Assassins: new max level of 100, level at the same speed as the player

Enemy StatsEdit

Enemies now start with a 100 health, magicka and stamina, just like the Dragonborn and will gain more with each level. Enemies will also carry the perks of Skyrim Redone. Currently the Forsworn aren't in this feature yet.


The previous changes only affect humanoid enemies. Creatures and animals carry realistic resistances. There are also a few loading screens with new information on creatures

  • Dwemer mechanics: weak to frost, strong against other magic and bladed weapons
  • Ghosts: turn invisibile when not attacking
  • Skeletons: are not affected by bows and most other damage from sharp weapons

In vanilla Skyrim, most enemies don't do anything until they engage in combat, now this has been changed:

  • Enemies block more often
  • Enemies get a lot more aggressive when ganging up on someone
  • Enemies are a lot better at bashing while you power attack
  • Enemies attack more often while you're staggered

Encounter ZonesEdit

In vanilla Skyrim, most zones adjust to the Dragonborn's level. This makes dungeons generally easy to beat. Thanks to this plug-in, minimum levels are assigned to many zones, and a few have rather high levels. This means that some dungeons are harder to beat, but also rewards a better loot when beating a high-level dungeon on a lower level.

Survivalism ModuleEdit

This module was especially added for Frostfall users. It enhances the Wayfarer-tree with perks that apply to Frostfall, and consequentially requires Frostfall as well as the main module to work.
