Ready to start a Skyrim run, for the 100th time? Then, start installing all the mods first! How about you play as a necromancer dragonborn this time? You will need some specific mods for that though. I am here to help obviously. Best necromancer mods for Skyrim Special Edition are listed below.
Necromancer dragonborn sounds cursed. However, this scenario is really fun to play. Especially with necromancer mods. You can also check out the list of necromancer RPG games list. But that is for another day. Let us begin the Skyrim necromancer mods list.
1. Alternate Start – Live Another Life
We are all tired of same old vanilla start. That is why, I like to use live another life mod, to spice things up.
This mod removes the classic crossing-border, cart journey start. Instead, you get to choose your own history in Skyrim.
Well, one of the starting option is, of course necromancer background. Alternate start mod lets you start the game as a necromancer, in a necromancers lair. But be careful, this is a hard start scenario. You will wake up in the Blackreach, which is filled with dwemer and falmer. It is not possible to fight them at level 1, so you need to escape from there. Good luck!
2. Undeath Remastered
Undeath is one of the best necromancer story mods ever created for Skyrim. Highly immersive, fun, and intriguing necromancer questline is introduced to Skyrim with this mod.
In short, a powerful necromancer is trying to seek out the forbidden secrets of immortality. But this dangerous pursuit threatens each and every living being in Skyrim.
Are you going to try and stop him? Or are you going to continue the dark ritual yourself? If you do, you can transform yourself into a powerful lich at will.
3. King of Worms
Here is another Skyrim quest mod, revolving around necromancy. Long time ago, one of Meridia’s beacons came into necromancer Gulub’s possession. Now, however, the necromancer is dead and the beacon stays lost.
Are you ready to find this lair and beacon? What will you do with it? Restore the dawn or continue the dead necromancers abominable research. Since this is a necromancer mod guide, I am pretty sure that you will choose the latter.
4. Undead FX
Here is the best visual mod for necromancers. Undead FX changes the appearance of undead such as, thralls, zombies, and skeletons. In vanilla these summons are looking real dull. This mode gives unique visuals for all necromancy summonings.
5. Sokco’s Guild Starter
One of the best things about Skyrim is the guilds. Unfortunately, there are no necromancers guild in the vanilla game. Obviously there is a mod for it.
There, I present you the Sokco’s guild starter. This mod allows you to create your very own guild.
Various guilds can be formed such as, necromancers, hunters, smugglers, miners, bandits, paladins, and more!
6. Death Consumes All
A mysterious plague is slaughtering Skyrim’s citizens and raising them a legion of undead.
Solve the mystery and defeat the source with the help of noble lady Salvian.
Is this caused by a necromancer, or something else? There is only one way to find out.
7. Bone Colossus
This mod introduces Bone Colossi to Skyrim. Bone colossus is a powerful undead golem formed by thousands of human bones using powerful necromancy.
Great addition for your necromancer playthrough.
Mod features are:
- 11 new creatures.
- 3 new weapons.
- 2 new ingredients.
- 4 new spells.
8. Tirashan – Necromancer Home
Beautiful home addon, created for necromancer characters. This epic tower Tirashan have its own merchant, teleport spell, all work stations and more! But the best thing about it is the design.
A necromancer needs a lair! Undoubtedly this mod is the best lair you can get.
9. Arcanum – A New Age of Magic
Arcanum is a massive spell mod that aims to transfer Skyrim’s spell system into something else. There are more than +200 spells introduced to the game with this mod. Of course some of them are necromancy spells.
Necromancy is really underpowered in the vanilla Skyrim. Thankfully, this mod solves this issue.
10. BURP – Spell Tomes
This is only a texture mod. Basically it changes the visuals of spell tomes, with much better design.
School of necromancy is included too. New necromancy spell tomes looks absolutely stunning. In short, this mod adds immersiveness to your mage playthrough.
11. The Dark Arts
This mod aims to improve necromancy in Skyrim. It adds various improvements such as thrall customizations, new rituals, corpse dissection, and new spells.
In sum, The Dark Arts mod is a necromancy overhaul created for Skyrim Special Edition. So, if you aren’t happy with the vanilla necromancy and want to improve things, install the dark arts.
12. The Dark Path
Are you ready to choose a dark path and obtain the forbidden spells? This mod adds immersive warlock spells for necromancer players.
The Dark Path adds immersive spells to the game such as shadow summons, disease spells, and death spells. It doesn’t create a new skill tree. Instead, all the spells are added to the conjuration.
13. The Path of Transcendence – Lichdom
Werewolf and vampire lord transformations are boring me. Instead, I want to transform into a powerful lich.
Unlike other lichdom mods, the path of transcendence doesn’t add requirements or requires a long grind. Basically it adds a short quest that allows you to be able to transform into a lich in no time.
14. Psikotics Necromancy Mod
Psikotics necromancy mod is a huge expansion to the conjuration tree. Additionally, it introduces many summoning spells to enjoy as a necromancer.
Thanks to the new diverse selection of spells, you will truly be able to rele-play as a necromancer. Overall, this is an overhaul mod for necromancy in Skyrim.
15. Remorseless Winter
Are you a death knight Arthas fan just like I am? If so, you will enjoy this mod very much. Basically you will be able to learn many new death knight spells.
Oh by the way, don’t forget to get frost FX mod too. Because it goes really well with the remorseless winter.
16. Necromantic Spells
This mod only adds 2 new necromancy spells to the game. However, they are master level spells and also highly effective against your enemies.
The spells are called death ray and implosion. You will certainly appreciate these skills in your journeys.
17. Staff of Necromancy
You will love this ultimate necromancer weapon, staff of necromancy.
Obviously this is the best staff design ever. Also, it is using the dread zombie enchantment. So, it isn’t visual only.
18. Master Necromancer Robes
Would you look at that! That is an intimidating look.
This mod adds the master necromancer robes to your game. In truth, vanilla necromancer robes looks like trash. If you are going to play as a necromancer, get this mod straightaway.
Edit: It turns out this mod is Skyblivion exclusive. What a bummer…
19. Ryleigh Necromancer Follower
Even a necromancer can use a companion. I am talking about a living one of course.
The first follower mod of this list is Ryleigh Necromancer. She is a high poly conjuration mage companion and uses your body textures. She is waiting for you at Windhelm, Hall of the Dead, in case you are wondering.
20. Xavier Necromancer Follower
Xavier is an altmer necromancer companion. Here will be there for you, incase you wanna do a necromancer double team.
He is a conjuration master in essence. Still, he can handle himself in close combat, quite well.
Overall, Xavier is strong and an immersive companion for a necromancer.
