Frustrated with Skyrim's PC user interface? Bored with its one-dimensional artificial intelligence routines? Looking for dragons that actually put up a fight, or maybe the option to summon one yourself? These best-in-show mods are aimed squarely at you.

Wars in Skyrim IV? Ahahaha, hell no.
I usually level my character's up to level 15 before I get bored with them and make a new one. (stupid, I know)
I also have Immersive patrols installed. Last thing I need is 30 NPCs on some crusade to rid the world of me,

why would you make a deadly dragons mod for skyrim just up the difficulty to legendary? guy who made the mod probably can't even play on anything but adept

Weird, all the behaviors used to describe Wars in Skyrim IV, I've seen happen in plain vanilla Skyrim. Are the radiant gods just that nice to me?

@DavidPalmer Uhm no. I finished vanilla Skyrim before the DLCs and well, even on Master difficulty (no legendary yet back then), Dragons were too easy. I used Deadly Dragons then.  Dragons were supposed to be the bringers of destruction, the most frightening beast in Skyrim, and yet what, I spend an afternoon hunting them for souls.

Now even on Legendary, Dragons were too easy to kill, and I'm using the vanilla magic skills. I use Legendary Difficulty, Deadly Dragons Expert and Dragon Combat Overhaul. Dragons aren't frightening when you're on Master difficulty and you watch a Giant take one down by himself. Dragons are supposed to be the most frightening creatures in Skyrim. The guy who made Deadly Dragons was like me, who found Master difficulty too easy.

@kgomez4487 @DavidPalmer Indeed. If you play the game enough and get a tough enough character dragons become pushovers anyway. This mod evens that playing field.
