Imagine having martial skills that are powered by magic, sounds dreamy right? Turns out you can achieve it in Skyrim. By combining One-Handed, Destruction, Illusion, Alteration, and Restoration, you can achieve a hybrid playstyle in the vanilla game. Some mods let you become a spellsword, a warrior who instills magic into their sword skills to take down their foes. This article is all about Skyrim Spellsword mod for Oldrim and Skyrim Special Edition on PC and Xbox One. So let’s dive right into it, shall we?
Skyrim Spellsword Mod Tutorial
Spellsword mod for Skyrim created by BusinessGoose introduces a new type of spellcasting system in Skyrim. It lets you harness magical powers as enchantments into your weapons, jewelry and shields. You can do so by pressing the MCM configurable casting button to either block or attack. The mod is available for both Oldrim and Skyrim Special Edition for PC users.
How Does It Work?
After installing the mod, you will need to finish a quest about getting a book from MCM. So open the MCM, get to know about it and set the casting and spell inventory buttons. Then select the option to send the manual “Combat Casting” to yourself. After reading the manual that has all the details about using the mod, you will have the opportunity to begin with a basic spell-enchanted item. That’s how you will finish the quest.
You will need to fill the new spell-enchantments with the desired spells as they don’t come with any spells. To do so, get the spell in your right hand, go to your inventory, and press either the spell inventory or casting key on the spell-enchanted item.
To cast a spell from your weapon or shield, just press and hold the casting button and block or attack. All the spells can be set to cast either on attack or block in the MCM, except for the concentration spells that can only be cast on block. However, the jewelry cannot cast spells. It can only hold them. To cast these and the others, you should use any enchanted weapon or shield.
Note: Only one spell can be active and cast at a time if you have multiple of them equipped. To change the active spell, you will need to cycle through them by using the spell selection key.
