Every Skyrim player fallen into the vampire / werewolf dilemma. I mean they are both great. Still, vampirism sounds and feels much cooler. There is one problem though. Skyrim vampirism is kind of dull, including vampire lord transform. That is easily fixable with mods though. So, on this page, I want to share Skyrim Special Edition 20 best vampire mods.
There are many vampire themed mods created for Skyrim. Such as overhauls, armors, clothes, NPCs, followers, locations, player-homes, quests, textures, perks, skills, etc. Literally millions of them out there. So, for saving you some time, I have compiled the best ones.
These mods will make your vampire run much more fun! Let’s delay no more. Here are the 20 best SSE vampire mods:
1. Better Vampires
First and the best Skyrim SE vampire mod on our list is Better Vampires. It’s a vampire overhaul that is highly customizable. So that players can determine the way they wanted to play. Balancing issue is also solved this way.
By the way this mod only affects the player character who is a vampire. NPC vampire characters are untouched.
The more you fed on humanoids, the stronger you become. Each feeding strengthens you.
So, this overhaul offers completely new and better vampire gameplay. And you should definitely try it.
Sacrosanct is the second and last vampire / vampire lord overhaul mod on this page. It also reverses the vampire progression. Meaning the more you fed the stronger you became.
Other than that, this mod adds new abilities, powers, perks, hemomancy, system, and gameplay tweaks to the vampire kind.

Each race will have their own unique vampire ability. Also, the more time you spend as a vampire, the more you get stronger. Because a vampire’s age determines its rank.
3. Vampire Lord Perks
You didn’t like the vampire overhauls I have mentioned before? Then better use this vampire lord perks rework. Because it is necessary in my opinion since vampire lord transformation is pretty weak.
This mod introduces 22 new perks and 8 new spells to the vampire characters. Believe me, vampires need these additions. Vanilla vampires are weak and dull after all.
4. New Beginnings
I have a question for you. Are you going to start a new character to enjoy vampirism? Or are you looking mods to enhance your vampire character? If you are starting a new run, I can recommend you the Live Another Life mod. Because it allows to start as a vampire in Skyrim.
It is pretty lore friendly start and great for more immersive gameplay experience. You will start as a vampire in a secluded lair with this mod and write your own story.
5. Volkihar Knight Vampire Armor
Let’s continue with an armor mod for vampires. It adds a lore-friendly armor pack specifically made for vampire characters.
Armor sets included in this mod are royal guard cuirass, abyss-walker cuirass, and assassin cuirass. Each have unique bonuses. Both heavy and light armor versions are available as well.
6. Fangs and Eyes
Vampire face textures in vanilla Skyrim are ugly and not vampirish at all. This mod aims to fix that problem!
Fangs and eyes mod changes the appearance of all vampire characters. Beautiful new fangs and various eye colors will be added to your game.
7. Vampire Lord Retexture
Do you want to look like a real deal ancient vampire lord? This mod is a vampire lord-retexture. It completely changes the cartoonish vampire lord in base Skyrim into something scarier.
This mod’s textures are in 2k resolution and working for both genders.
8. Better Vampire NPCs
This mod is a Skyrim vampire NPC overhaul. Now vampire NPCs levels according the dragonborn and get stronger with perks, spells, and abilities.
I mean some vampires are at least hundreds of years old. They should be much stronger.
My beautiful vampire waifu Serana, I really love you!
But yeah, like every vanilla Skyrim NPC, she looks like an abomination without mods. It’s time to change that!
Basically, it is a mod that changes the appearance of our beloved vampire follower Serana.
10. Serana Dialogue Add-On
As stated in the name, this mod adds new dialogue lines to the follower Serana. She becomes more immersive follower thanks to that. I really like Serana mods when I play as vampire. She is the ideal follower for vampire characters after all.
Nearly 5000 fully voiced dialogue lines are added, acted by voice actress Kerstyn Unger. Her voice is beautiful and sounds comparatively similar to the original Serana voice.
11. Coldhaven – A Vampire City
Rumors of a secret vampire city spreading in the taverns of Skyrim. Since you are a dragonborn, it is your duty to investigate this phenomenon.
Coldhaven mod introduces new location to explore to Skyrim. You can visit Coldhaven as a vampire or a mortal. Looks like they tolerate visitors after all.
You will find taverns, inns, mines, shops, blacksmith, and houses inside. Including many mysteries. I don’t want to spoil the quests. But you will love it, that I can guarantee.
12. Humanoid Vampire Lords
You don’t like the ugly vampire lord transform? What if I told you that you can stay in humanoid form when transforming into a vampire lord?
This mod lets you do that. It’s even compatible with body mods such as CBBE, UNP, 7B, etc.
If you are bored of old vampire lord looks, give it a try.
13. Vampire Lord Real Flying
This mod adds real flying ability to vampire lords of Skyrim. A vampire lord should be able to fly! It has wings after all.
“It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a Vampire Lord!
Simply activate this mod, transform into vampire, and press shift in hover mod. Then fly away to anywhere you want!
14. Better Vampire Weapons
Vampires of Skyrim developing new weapons to destroy Dawnguard. They are indeed powerful and game changing.
So, which side are you on? You can either use these weapons yourself or side with Dawnguard to seize them before terrors are unleashed upon the mortals.
15. Dark Envoy
This mod adds deadly vampire powers. But first, you must overcome the Molag Bal’s trial. Which is a small questline.
Once the trial is complete, you will become Molag Bal’s chosen champion. That will give you new powers to use in both base and lord form.
You can teleport to any city, absorb the soul of your victims, or unleash an army of Daedra.
16. Bat Travel Vampire Power
It’s just another vampire power mod which allows you to turn into a cloud of bats and fast travel! Possible destinations are major villages, cities, Castle Volkihar, and your pre-determined custom location.
This power certainly needed to be in the vanilla Skyrim. Instead, we are using mods to get bat travel.
17. Crypt of the Old Guard
Crypt of the Old Guard is a beautiful Skyrim SE vampire home mod. What’s more, it is old, dark, hidden, and fully immersive.
Vampire house features:
- Vampire cattle for feeding.

Penumbra is a vampire lord sounds rework. This makes vampire lords sound more vicious.
It covers all vampire lord sounds including spells effects. Basically, Penumbra is a highly immersive, perfect mod for vampire lords.
19. Vampire Lords Can Activate
Player can’t interact with anything in a vampire lord transformation. Which is pretty frustrating. Whenever PC needs to loot or interact, transformation must be reversed.
You too hate that right? Then use this mod and interact with anything you want in the vampire lord form. Just don’t try to ride a horse in that state. Because it’s cursed and breaks your game.
20. Seductress Faye
Last vampire mod on our list is Seductress Faye, custom voiced vampire follower. A vampire should choose his/her companions among the vampire folk, after all.
Faye has her own follower management system and introduction quest. She will also interact with her surroundings.
