Know Your Enemy – Trait-Based Resistances And Weaknesses
Best Skyrim Mods of April 2018
The combat in Skyrim is quite possibly one of the weakest parts of the game, with there being very little in the way of variety. Generally, you can breeze through the game armed with a single levelled-up weapon, which does large damage to all enemy types. This mod makes things a lot more interesting, adding resistance and susceptibility of different creatures to different types of damage. It forces you to start thinking about which weapon to use against a particular enemy, and gives the game a much more tactical element. It adds a series of traits to each enemy, like the undead trait which grants an inherent resistant to shock damage, for example.
Each trait is given its own loading screen in the game, which will give hints on what it entails. For any adventurer looking to spice up the combat and make things a little more challenging, it’s a great way to go. It’s currently available for Xbox One.
