In Bethesda’s latest Elder Scrolls: magic encompasses a whole third of its role-playing system (the three skill-trees being Thief, Mage, and Warrior). With so many players so fond of the Mage class, it’s fitting that Skyrim’s modding community has put so much thought into experimenting with the magic system.

Skyrim Mod: Smart Cast

Smart Cast’ is designed to smarten up Skyrim’s magic system. Magic is made more readily available regardless of your style of combat.

Spells can fire off automatically, when certain criteria you’ve entirely set yourself is met. Low on health? Have healing spells blast you back to life before that metre hits Zero!

Skyrim’s spell system marked something of a downgrade from Oblivion’s spell system – having relegated the player to using either two-handed weapons/one-handed weapon and shield or magic.

With NeoRunek’s Smart Cast mod: the player is given the option of causing spells to cast without having to equip them. It also makes it so that spells are fired off automatically when certain “criteria” are met – such as when the player’s health drops below a certain threshold.
