The Best Skyrim Mods | 2018

Revisiting Skyrim in 2018 to look at the best.. or rather my favorite mods that currently are around and still supported.

I typically go back and dive into Skyrim modding about once a year.. spend 100 hours making a Skyrim mod list.. playing for 10 minutes and then make another Skyrim mod list.. and repeat that process until I get burnt out. Usually after I've made 12 Skyrim mod lists.

This mod list is soley made from mods from the Skyrim Special Edition as from the looks of it it has more or less replaced the original & legendary version modding scenes.


I might be off base but it seems like Skyrim modding as a whole while still getting new mods being made for it.. the numbers of people playing it are starting to slow down so this video wasn't put on my Skyrim channel.

    "I find a cool two-handed sword but I'm currently playing my 10th stealth archer"I didn't need such a personal attack.

    Bethesda should thank the modding community

  • pSyk

    Please stop! You are gonna make me play Skyrim AGAIN!

    2070: Hey grandpa watch ya doing? Oh hey there. Oh I'm just making a new mod for skyrim.

  • Papi Flame

    I’m going to buy a pc literally for the purpose of playing skyrim with mods. This is coming from a PS4 modding normie.Edit: build a pc actually

  • Eknim

    SPERG is for spergsthis comment was made by Ordinator GANG

  • edwin sparks

    Yeah... So we don't hate the idea of mod creators getting paid, that is why some of us contribute to the modders via the nexus. What we hate is when Bethesda takes existing mods and adds them to a game to make money, like when they took features from the Willow FNV mod to make followers in Fallout 4 more appealing. The survival mod is unfortunately just a mash together of the Frostfall/Campfire mods with iNeed and the survival no fast travel setting from fallout 4. that's pretty much all it is.

  • Gemüsefachlümmel

    FINALLY! Finally a visual character overhall mod without those pathetic babe/naked/giant juggs mods! gosh, this is the hardest type of mod to find. and in times of a constant stream of free internet nudity this fact is very very sad.

  • kraiZor

    When the creation club was announced Bethesda talked a big game like they were going to be making the kind of DLC sized mods that take modders years to produce. Instead we got lots of skins (which there were a shit ton of the day that Skyrim came out.) If Bethesda had made shit that was on the level of Falskaar people probably wouldn't have complained as much.

  • AlienOvermind

    SPERG's "auto-perks" is a fine idea that goes well with TES "automatically empower thing you use" levelling system. But other than that Ordinator is much better. It's filled with interesting ideas and mechanics, it has very good compatibility (unlike good old SkyRe/PerMa for example), it makes basically every skill tree worth investing into and the amount of possibilitied added by Ordinator is simply huge. In my opinion it's popularity is very well deserved.

  • DastardlyFellow

    What is your full load order? You're game LOOKS AMAZING.

  • Joe W.

    How are you blocking with dual wield? I MUST KNOW.

  • Florida Man

    It'd be great if someone made a all in one mod pack called "Slootrim".MxR! Get on that!

  • Nicholas Bryant

    Disagree when it comes to Ordinator vs SPERG. Ordinator completely changes the game, your ability to roleplay and most importantly takes previously useless things like Daggers and Frost magic and makes them viable combat options. It makes being a Spellsword actually viable for legendary difficulty. It makes destruction magic itself actually viable for Legendary difficulty without needing to exploit meat shields and exploits. It adds crowd control methods to all 3 destruction elements. It actually differentiates the choice between light armor and heavy armor outside of aesthetic choice. Of the 2 it is simply the objectively better perk overhaul. Its only overwhelming if you don't understand the mechanics behind the overhaul itself. You were never meant to max out your skill trees. You were mean't to specifically pick perks that benefit the class you play.

  • gil pima

    That guy in the picture looks like talion for shadow of war

  • Michael Coffey

    Heck of a fun list. Thanks for the time and spotlight Fevir :). As for me after a play through or two when I mod I enjoy things that help with immersion better weather better or more varied npc's and the like. Was fun to see what you like but hear WHY you enjoy each mod.

  • President Pepe

    Each one of these mods should be implemented into Elder Scrolls 6

  • Little Finger

    Diverse Dragons, is one of the worst mods ever. Not because its bad, but that if you ever come across a problem that is due to Diverse Dragons. You will have to make a whole new save. It is also one of the most buggy and conflicting mods, available atm. So if you get a bug, you will have to start a whole new game, I am not joking. As if you uninstall it you need to go back to a save, before you encountered a dragon. As it will say corrupted game save. I dont believe you knew, about how glitchy Diverse Dragons is. Thank you and have a great day!

  • Not Aruto Fagget

    Great video man! Either way I really do disagree with your point of view on SPERG vs. Ordinator, mostly because I believe Ordinator does everything and more of what you said SPERG does but still is a fun mod but I would not choose it before Ordinator.

  • Christopher Bradley

    Got to give a shout out to “Survival Configurator”It adds an MCM menu that lets you alter the creation club Survival Mode.It lets you alter many values, such as how much “very small, large” amount recovers, and making negative effects set in more gradually.But best of all, it adds thirst using the exact same system so it blends in and feels official.

  • T.A.P. Gaming

    My game looks as good as this (maybe better) WITHOUT the use of a FPS raping ENBMy numerous live streams prove that you DO NOT NEED an ENB

  • Troy Addict

    Even without mod Skyrim is so much fun I prefer to play with out mods like if I play with mods I never go to crazy just add darker nights clear sky’s and lamp post thicker forests and grass you know visual changes that is lore to the game a hardcore survival mod and I’m done I like my Skyrim to still be the original Skyrim just harder and look more wild and dark and been playing like this for 5 years now and have not changed it ,Skyrim will always be my top 5 favorite game even without mods it’s good ,Skyrim is great A lot of people think mods are keeping this game alive eh wrong I got two of my friends to buy it and play it and they love it and mind you they got the original with out mods but give them like 2 years or more once they beat the whole game and master it all they will get the modded version

  • Shadower Z0

    What I love about SPERG is that i can choose WHICH skills can have auto-perks. And I choose 7 specific skills for my Roleplay build.

  • Matthew Abolins

    Instead of SPERG and Know Your Enemy just install REQUIEM and be done with it! Requiem does everything they do and more!

  • LakeOver TheCity

    But Ordinator let's me craft a Dwarven Autocannon!Seriously though, good list. I haven't used all of these, but the mods you listed are pretty good overhauls of what I find to be basic ass systems in the base SE

  • C. Tyrell

    Damn u dude, video didn't even start and now im looking for spider web mobswell, i'm typing this first butedit: I recommend Hetrol SPIDER WEBS Deluxe on Nexus!

  • TEMM

    Is their an original list of mods from normal skyrim (not special edition)

  • llSmokyll

    Fevir, man, you never disappoint me. Really dude, i've just went on a new playthrough on Skyrim SE (literally 4 days ago) and i was wondering: how cool would be a fresh new Fevir's skyrim mod video?!

  • Ebelel

    Get Beth INI! Its amazing! Few MegaBytes for such an efficient tool:+ Fixes,+ performence,+ joyThanks for the recommendation!

  • burnt f1ames

    Best mod is a Thomas the dank engine

  • Woekitten Videos

    Legacy of the Dragonborn is pretty much single-handedly responsible for me getting back into Skyrim after so many years. I'm even trying to LP it.I personally prefer Ordinator just because the options are so interesting, but I do like the idea of automatically gaining a core set of perks as you level a skill. I'm not familiar with the other mods you mentioned, I'll have to check some of them out. Assuming they'll play nice with my current setup, of course.

  • RychecksWorld

    Amazing video, starting a new play through because of it

  • Mark Trotchie

    Your game looks incredible, is there any chance of you sharing your mod list? Or at least whatever textures/ENB/etc you are using?EDIT: The reason I ask is because I notice your game looks great AND simple. I've noticed a lot of texture mods are almost too detailed, it looks great but makes it hard for me to focus on all of the detail

  • Torugo

    Essa legendas do vídeo ficaram cortadas. Tem várias coisas que vc fala que não aparece nas legendas. Estão realmente muito ruins.

  • Matias

    these mods works in the original skyrim?

  • Motör Punx

    Hey dude, just one critiscism - can you please indicate these are for the Special Edition. That wasn't very clear until I looked these up :)

  • Bordeaux Man

    Saying "ordinator in my head" suddenly says " Sperg" Shocked

  • A Man Of God

    Thank you for keeping the community alive, and giving us hope, after 7 years that TES: 6 will come out.

  • CaptianNelf

    I’M BACK BICHES! Back in my day these were the regular uploads. So fevir how’re you doing?

  • Stormcloak Shreds

    Seriously...Not a single skyrim 2011 mod?Wow

  • SoaringMediocrity

    I agreed with most of these, I used SPERG for years before i swapped over to Ordinator. I found Ordinator just gave me so much more variations in what I wanted to build specifically. Not to say SPERG is bad, it just felt meh once I moved on.

  • s0ftsp0t the wise

    OMG HE DIDN'T SAY "What's good, it's Fevir"

  • Creen

    I wish I hadn't upgraded to Vortex because now I have to go through all my hundreds of mods again and fix them just to play Skyrim again. I still haven't found the energy and willpower to do so.

  • Anti-HyperLink

    I run away from dragons because I'm even weak in skyrim. I'm gonna go find a bridge...And admire its architectural style.

  • Sim. Frischh

    "my tenth stealth archer" LOLIt´s so true, archery is OP in Skyrim.I currently work hard to get off of archery by using magic, but since one needs more trees to be effective it takes more skill points and thus more time.

  • Engraved

    "know your enemy mod makes it like the witcher where u need a silver and normal blade." Ya ok buddy. I was carrying around a silver sword in Morrowind before that long-haired slav could even tie his own ponytail. Bethesda needs mods to make BEthesda games like a real BEthesda game

  • Michael Kralik

    15:44 What is the animations mod that you are using? So cool

  • King Jerbear

    Excellent video! I really appreciate that you didn't spend time going over the visual stuff (that we all have our own preference for) and really picked some unique mods that give the game a different feel. I've always been the type of player that tries to retain a vanilla experience with some graphical improvements, but there are some mods you listed that certainly pique my interest and have me reconsidering my approach. Your game looks amazing, I might add, but I really appreciate the time and effort you put into choosing and presenting the modifications that you did. Keep up the great work! I'd love to see some "playthrough" videos from you in the future! Whether commentated or otherwise, it would be very satisfying. Thanks for sharing :)

  • xISui cide

    I Need your graphic mods.. your skyrim looks Amazing..

  • Tyger Eyes

    Exceptional review of some mods that were unique and unknown to me! Nicely done and thank-you.

  • Elianora

    what hair mod is his character using?? I love the braid and 100% want it on my character

  • sos van eey

    is this skyrim OG or SE ?PS: maybe give the authors of the mod a shoutout next time?

  • Donnie Jefferson

    Legacy of the dragonborn is my personal favorite mod. I never really went out to hunt down all the unique items other than daedric artifacts or a few I actually used. This mod made me go pretty much everywhere and see places I somehow hadn't seen over all the years over played skyrim. Plus, the fact that it gives new skins to every unique weapon/armor that dodmt have a unique appearance makes finding an item you've seen countless times before a real cool experience. The implementation of other mods is great too. I was really wanting to play skyrim again but I was getting bored of everything. This brought me back. Unfortunately after months of playing and searching for items I accidentally broke the game and cant use my old save. I was just about to start legacy again. Hope it's still fun a second time

  • Gamer Freak

    Thanks for this video. Skyrim has always been my favorite game and now I'm wanting to replay it adding these amazing mods. I hope a lot of these work on my xbox one x

  • dylan sabo

    was just wondering! what ENB are you using?? it looks gorgeous!

  • Frenchy Gaming

    I enjoyed this video a lot but you have a lot of gain in your microphone. Killed my ears. Good video though.

  • autobotjazz1972

    Going to be getting Skyrim SE for Xbox 1 and looking forward to a few mods , mainly making weapons and armor look better and maybe , maybe speeding up leveling skills. Also I would love a mod that keeps shop keepers from dying to dragons or vampires.

  • Sszarkk Theburning

    Skyrim with mods Best Single Player Game !!!

  • SevenStringShredHead

    Not having ordinator means not being able to role play as THE dragonborn because you need the speechcraft perks. This is dealbreaker for me

  • MotherNature

    The great thing about Sperm. - Almost Fevir 1018

  • Fruitybrute

    You have a standard Skyrim equivalent for Complete Enemy Overhaul?

  • Lis Nikoliqi

    Not sure what exactly you were talking about other perk mods having non impactfll perks when that is clearly not the case with ordinator

  • UrielManX7

    "Focus on character skill over player skill"I'm not sure I understand what this refers too (the mod pages adds: YASH is not aimed at button mashers but at players who carefully plan their characters.)This confuses me a bit, because both terms seem to be a good thing, because button mashing is not something you would call "player skill", and character skill does make you think on about how you made a char so it's more efficient.Then what about DaS? It has both, you can bork your character by dropping points in the wrong status (I'm looking at you RES), but it also is lot about player skill, since you can beat the game naked, fists only and lv 1.Maybe he's talking about that you shouldn't be able to do precise that? I guess it makes sense, if you could beat a game without any preparation whatsoever in terms of character building, then whats' the point of having levels and equipment and spells and things. I guess it's my fault, I just love having the freedom to do so, even since I was a child, my favorite game is MegaMan, and I always played them to this day, by not using the special weapons, only when I'm at the boss rush I use them just to see what boss had what weakness. I've always liked the idea to being able to beat a game in whatever fashion you want.Guess I just answered my own question. :V
